Mapping of Previously Mined Ground for Infrastructure Citing Purposes

Missouri University of Science and Technology will acquire 3,000 lineal feet of high-resolution reflection seismic data along multiple traverses at the Knight Hawk Coal Company PEUG Site in an effort to determine if/where the area has been previously mined (room and pillar coal mining). This information is required for infrastructure planning and construction purposes. Previously-mined ground is susceptible to gradual-to-catastrophic subsidence which can cause structural damage to overlying infrastructure including roadways and utilities.
