Lignite is the lowest quality coal with low carbon content of 25-35%, moisture content of 20-40%, and heating value of 4000 to 8300 BTU per pound. Lignite is typically used in pulverized coal or cyclone-fired electric production power plants.
The global lignite mining market was valued at $108.19 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region accounting for $76.86 billion or 71.04% of the global market. And China was the largest country accounting for $57.49 billion or 53.14% of the global lignite mining market.
Mining companies are using 3D mine visualizers to obtain a real-time digital model of a mine. A 3D mine visualizer generates a three-dimensional model of the mine layout and transfers it directly to the operator. With a web-based interface, information about the model is available with any connected device. It offers full record and playback capabilities in 3D thus allowing operators to review and analyze historical data in order to improve productivity and identify best practices. 3D mine visualizers significantly enhance the productivity of large mining environments. It is a valuable tool in operations planning, analyzing problematic areas and tracking mine development over time. Companies such as Sandvik and Komatsu are offering 3D visualizer systems.
