Abstract

© IMCET 2022. All rights reserved.Avdan and Narlı coal mine sites located in Denizli City Tavas Province is going to serve as raw material source for thermal power plant that will be constructed close to the mine site or existing Aegean region's thermal power plants. The coal mine sites consist of two different coal zones that are Yenidere and Sekkoy coal zones. Coal zones are the sum of coal seams and interburden among them. The formation are similar both for Yenidere and Sekkoy coal zones. Solid models of the coal zones were firstly determined based on the drill log database and then block models were executed. Hence, estimation of coal quality could be proceed after running kriging to determine coal resource and quality modelling. The purpose of the study is to model these two coal mine sites to understand the overall resource potential as well as the effect of merging adjacent mining area licenses sites for the optimized use of coal mine sits for energy production.
