A Abutment — In coal mining, 1 the weight of the rocks above a narrow roadway is transferred to the solid coal along the sides, which act as abutments of the arch of strata spanning the roadway; and 2 the weight of the rocks over a longwall face is transferred to the front abutment, that is, the solid coal ahead of the face and the back abutment, that is, the settled packs behind the face. Acid deposition or acid rain — Refers loosely to a mixture of wet and dry "deposition" deposited material from the atmosphere containing higher than "normal" amount of nitric and sulfuric acids.
Amount of saleable coal produced per man per shift.
Similarly AB 12 being 12 inches high for thin seams Abattib - Leicestershire Coal Field Walls or ranges of branch or rough wood cord-wood placed crossways to keep the under-ground roads open for ventilation, etc.
Acre - Unit of land standardised by Edward I, 40 rods x 4 rods, now 4, square yards Acreage Rent - Royalty or rent paid by the lessee for working and disposing of minerals at the rate of so much per acre.
Very frequently this rent is calculated at so much per foot thick of the seam or mine per acre, the measurements being taken on the slope or plane of the coal, etc. Addit or footrill - Entrance to a mine, usually a drift which sloped from the surface down to a coal seam.
Addle - North of England To earn. Addlings - North of England Earnings or wages. Adit - An underground level to the surface from the level of the mine workings, or from part of the way down the shaft Fig 1generally used for drainage purposes. Advanced Head - A roadway heading which is in front of the coal face line.
Advance Face - A face where the coal is extracted as the face and roadways advance, advancing away from the main roads. Opposite to retreat mining. Adventurers - The original promoters or speculators in a search for coal, etc.
Aerial ropeway towers - System of dirt tipping using buckets traversing along a steel rope on towers. Aerometers - The air pistons of a Struve ventilator.

Aerophore - The name given to an apparatus which will enable a man to enter places in mines filled with explosive or other deadly gases, work there with freedom, take with him a light, and remain for an indefinite time. AFC or Panzer - An armoured flexible conveyor, used to transport coal off a face.
Coal cutting machines were often mounted above the AFC. Hydraulic chocks were attached to the AFC. They could then be advanced using a ram. Also known as the panzer. Steel pans linked together with chains and bars Aftercooler - Fan with cooling air set up near a return gate lip at a coalface to lower the working temperature.
Afterdamp - A mixture of lethal gases after an explosion, colourless, deadly, just one of the many hazards one encounters venturing underground.
Agent - One to whom the general laying out and supervision of the workings is entrusted by the owner or lessee. He may have a number of separate collieries under his care. Any addition or alteration in the various departments connected both with the underground and surface works, machinery, etc.
He is responsible to the owner as well as under the Coal Mines Regulation Act for the appointment of competent managers, enginewrights, deputies, surveyors, etc.
Air 1 The current of atmospheric air circulating through and ventilating the workings of a mine. Air 2 To ventilate any portion of the workings.
Airbagging - A flexible trunking used to conduct air from an auxiliary fan to where it was needed at the head of a driveage. Airbreaker - An alternative method using compressed air, instead of using explosives to break down the coal.
Air-Box - A rectangular wooden pipe or tube made in lengths of say 9 to 15 feet for ventilating a heading or a sinking pit. Air-Course - Any underground roadway used for the special purpose of ventilation. Air- Crossing - A bridge which carries one air-course over another. In collieries liable to heavy explosions, in order to prevent as far as possible the blast from destroying these air-crossings and deranging the ventilation, it is better to avoid the use of the ordinary timber or even masonry bridge, and to make an entirely isolated air-course several yards above the underneath road, and if a seam of coal be conveniently situated on which to construct it, it will not be an expensive plan.
The dotted lines show the position on an ordinary crossing.
Air doors - means of passing from intake to return Air-End Way - Headways or levels driven in the coal seam parallel with a main level, chiefly for the purpose of ventilation or for the return air. They are connected with the main level by openings or thirls. Air-Gates - Midland Coal-field Generally a return airway gate from a coalface but could be an intake gate.
Air-Head - See Air-way. Air leg - Compressed air boring machine, used mainly in hard rock Air-Level - A level or air-way return air-way of former workings, made use of in subsequent deeper mining operations for ventilating purposes. Air-Pit - A pit-shaft used expressly for ventilation.Worker Safety Series Warehousing Think Safety.
