HOWARD SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETES ANOTHER MINE FIRE PROJECT

Newburg, WV – November 17, 2017 – Initial results indicate that a significant mine fire in West Virginia has been safely contained with the drilling and grouting services from Howard Concrete Pumping.  A recent article in The Preston County News Journal highlights this project.  The mine fire was a major environmental hazard and safety concern to local residents, with initial temperature readings exceeding 1,000 degrees F.  The innovative approach toward this project may well become the industry standard for containing deep mine fires that were once thought to be too expensive to extinguish.  The rock formations surrounding the coal mine will continue to retain heat for many years and will be monitored with a series of temperatures.

One of the burning environmental issues related to deep mining’s history, is on-going coal mine fires. Mine fires are a fairly common occurrence throughout the bituminous and anthracite coal mining regions and present a multitude of environmental and safety concerns. Mine fires, with a nearly limitless supply of fuel, can burn for decades without active 3rd party intervention.  Contact us for more information on how our drilling and grouting services can help extinguish mine fires.
