It requires MNG T 030 as a prerequisite so students have a basic understanding of mine operation, and serves as a prerequisite to MNG T 213, where the students in the production emphasis learn how to control these strata. Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
a. Explain where and how coal deposits are formed.
b. Explain structural geology features related to mining and their causes.
c. Explain the impact of coal depositional and structural geology features on mining conditions.
d. Review basic strata control theories and applications.
