Comparative studies and evaluation of Pench valley and Wardha valley coalfields, India


Ankit Wagh

Pench-Kanhan-Tawa Valley Coalfield and Wardha Valley Coalfields holds a premier position in India for having the considerable share of reserve of thermal grades non-coking coal for catering the demand of coal in the western part of country. The present study reflects about the properties of a given coal samples that can be related to three independent geological parameters, each of which is determined by some aspect of the coal’s origin. As discussed more fully by authors such as Ward (1984), Diessel (1992), Taylor et al. (1998), and Thomas (2002), these parameters are briefly defined. They are rank (reflects the degree of metamorphism), type (the nature of the plant debris from which the original peat was derived) and grade (reflects the extent to which the accumulation of plant debris has been kept free of contamination by inorganic material). Coal is an extremely complex material and exhibits a wide range of physical properties. The rapidly expanding use of coal in the twentieth century made it necessary to devise acceptable methods for coal analysis with the goal of correlating composition and properties with behaviour. It is only by assiduously using careful analyses of coal that the various aspects of coal usage can be achieved in an environmentally acceptable manner. As a part of the multifaceted program of coal evaluation, new methods are continually being developed and the already accepted methods may need regular modification to increase the accuracy of the technique as well as the precision of the results. Furthermore, proper interpretation of the data resulting from the analysis of coal requires an understanding of the significance of the analytical data. Both coal mining and coal consumption have a significant impact on the natural environment. Thus, although coal is an important contributor to the economic and social development of many countries, there is a strong need to minimize and where possible reduce the negative impacts associated with its mining and use.
