Mining and earth International standards

The Mining and earth-moving machinery document describes terms related to rock drilling rigs and rock reinforcement drills. It also explains their intended use, working methods and types. You will also find (Annex A) several classifications for rock drill rigs based on their intended use, mobility, and type of operation. This document is primarily used in instruction manuals for rock drills rigs as well as marketing materials. ISO 18758-2 uses safety terminology. This document does not apply to drill rigs that drill soil or rock mixture. The bibliography contains documents that cover vocabulary related topics.

Structures for mine shafts

This document outlines the terms and definitions for the structures of mine shafts that are used in ISO 19426. Mining terms can differ from traditional engineering terminology and they can be very different between countries. Alternative terms are included in many entries. The ISO 19426 standard terms are the preferred terms. They are bolded. This document assumes that the users are familiar with mining. Therefore, common terms used in a dictionary are not defined. No definitions are given for terms that are widely used in mining, but not in ISO 19426.

Petrographic analysis of coals

ISO 7404-1 defines terms used in connection to both microlithotype and maceral analyses and the determination of vitrinite's reflectance. It covers all terms that are used in the analysis of coal of any rank. ISO 7404-1.2016 is not meant to be a complete glossary of coal-related terminology. It also does not attempt to provide enough information to enable recognition of all components of the coal described. Further information may be obtained from the relevant ICCP publications[3][4][5].

Petrographic analysis of bituminous coal and anthracite

Cancelled and replaced the original edition (1984). These terms are used to describe both maceral and microlithotype analyses that were performed in white light, and the determination of the vitrinite's reflectance. Only applies to anthracite and bituminous coal. This does not include the analysis of brown coals, sub-bituminous or lignite.
