Abstract: Selection of a suitable mining method for economical and safe underground extraction of a thick coal seam is an extremely delicate process and brings a number of geo-technical parameters into consideration. In fact, single lift working of full thickness of a thick coal seam has always a verge over the multi slice working due to favorable economics and high production and productivity. Charbonnage de France (CdF) proposed Blasting Gallery (BG) for extraction of virgin thick seams as well as developed pillars in thick seams in single lift. The method was very successful resulting in 85% of extraction with high productivity. But, this method experienced strata control problems during final extraction. Due to strata problems, the method was not successful at East Katras Colliery where overriding of the pillars occurred in one panel. Two BG panels (BG 2/2 and BG 1/10 panels) at GDK No. 8 Incline, Singareni Collieries Company Ltd. (SCCL) were also closed prematurely due to strata problems. In this paper, strata monitoring data of stress cells in pillars of a blasting gallery panel is analyzed for the induced stresses in a Blasting Gallery panel during depillaring in specific geo-mining and working conditions of a underground mine in Southern part of India. 2012 CAFET-INNOVA TECHNICAL SOCIETY.
