The vigorous development of cleaner mining technology (CMT) is not only the need of current economic development but also the practical option for realizing the sustainability of natural resources. The implementation of cleaner mining technologies, in order to extract better quality coal while polluting less, is a necessary step if one wishes to develop mining activities in harmony with the environment. Mining activities starts with the exploration of mineral deposits and subsequent blasting, loading and transportation. These activities have colossal adverse impact on the environment. Therefore, we shall have to address these issues while designing and developing new coal mining technologies. In this paper, design methodology for the implementation of cleaner coal mining technologies is proposed. The methodology involves the optimization of the existing technology, technology modification, and replacing the technology. All these three methods for designing cleaner coal mining technology are of great concern for practicing mining planners and designers to meet the design challenges of higher production and environmental protection simultaneously.
