At present utilization of fly ash is carried out in the area of bricks, cement, concretes, agriculture and mine filling. The possibility may be investigated to utilize fly ash in quick isolation of fire affected area in underground coal mines by making mine seals. In view of above development of fly ash based composition suitable for construction of alternative mine seals in underground mines will have direct practical application and will provide an alternative to conventional seal as well as it will make control of fire easy and isolation of the area very quick during emergency. Five fly ash samples collected from different thermal power stations and analyzed in respect of their physical properties viz. colour, lumpiness, particle size, leaching behavior, bulk density, moisture content and combustible material to find their suitability for use in making mine seals.
