Recent investigations of mine roof falls have demonstrated that roof failures are generally associated with geologic conditions. The roof falls can be predicted by using the techniques of depositional modeling for the coal bed and roof rocks, and by lineament analysis. The ability to predict potential roof failure areas will allow the engineer and mine planner to develop a mine plan to avoid the roof failure areas and thus reduce overall mining costs. The ability to avoid roof failure areas also will permit maximum recovery of the coal resources.
