Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coal mining can usually produce large amounts of mine water, causing a series of safety and environmental impact problems. Coal mines are challenged by mine water safety, groundwater pollution, mine water resource utilization, and ecological environment protection. Although many scholars have been rapidly advancing the field via the adoption of new ideas and concepts, the safety of mining conditions and the groundwater environment in the mining area have been greatly improved, and the technology, processes, and materials of mine water prevention and treatment have been greatly developed; however, some problems remain. These include the development of new methods and models for the management of floor and roof mine water hazards, the sampling and detection of pollutants in the coal mine area, high-efficiency and low-cost mine water treatment, unconventional mine water resources utilization, groundwater protection, the geological storage of mine water, etc.

Therefore, we are pleased to organize a new Special Issue of Water, entitled “Mine Water Safety and Environment”.

This Special Issue aims to publish multidisciplinary scholarly works focusing on obtaining an in-depth understanding of the scientific principles and mechanisms, including critical technology, challenges, and ideas for mine water hazard and pollution prevention, water-preserved coal mining, mine water reinjection and geological storage, the treatment and utilization of mine water, and the modeling of groundwater in mining areas.

For this Special Issue of Water, we welcome papers addressing topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Prevention and control of mine water hazard;
  • Prevention and control of mine water pollution;
  • Water-preserved coal mining;
  • Geo-evolution and biogeochemical process of mine water quality;
  • Mine water reinjection and geological storage;
  • Water pollution in mine closure;
  • Treatment and utilization of mine water;
  • Modeling of groundwater in mining area.

Generally, ground grouting is used to treat confined water areas before mining at the working face, but there is a lack of testing methods for determining the effectiveness of such a grouting treatment on the floor of ultrawide working faces. Therefore, we propose a 3D DC resistivity method for mines and apply it to the detection of the effect of grouting on the mine floor. This study took the Yongmei Xinqiao Coal Mine in Henan Province as the research object and used a combination of theoretical analysis, numerical simulation, and measured data analysis to study the effect of the 3D resistivity method on detecting the effect of grouting on the floor of an ultrawide working face in the mine. The research results indicated that compared with the 2D observation mode of same-side power supply and reception, the 3D observation mode of opposite-side power supply and reception using the tunnels on both sides of the working face was more sensitive to the response of the water-rich area 60 m below the coal seam’s floor. Regarding the model’s set-up in this article, when traditional apparent resistivity calculations were used, the apparent resistivity obtained by the 3D observation mode was opposite to the model’s setting, and accurate electrical information of anomalous bodies must be obtained through 3D inversion. The measured data showed that although the ground grouting treatment effectively reduced the water volume in the floor, the treatment’s result was affected by human factors, and the water in the floor was redistributed.
