To improve selection methods of operation schedules as well as means of auxiliary transportation facilities involving adaptation of their parameters to the specific application environment while preparing new extraction pillars for coal mining.

The current methods for substantiating the operational parameters of the means of internal mine transport do not take into account the impact of mining-geological and technological factors, which change inadequately in space and time, on their productivity. The recommended method for selecting transport and technological schemes and increasing their adaptability in the real conditions of the mine environment is based on the comprehensive use of methods of expert evaluation of the operational indicators of the new generation of auxiliary transport means and modeling of the conditions of their interaction with arch support and side rocks at the stages of mining and their operation when preparing new mining pillars for cleaning mining.

The expert evaluation concerning technological features of mining field preparation as well as assembling and dismantling operations has determined that for the specific conditions of Western Donbas mines, the suspended diesel monorail locomotive and self-propelled machines are the most promising options. Gear clutch rail diesel locomotives are recommended as the auxiliary transport for the accelerated preparation of extraction pillar and introduction of a longwall into operation.

New approaches have been substantiated to improve selection of the efficient means of auxiliary transportation facilities and identify their operational parameters for the well-timed preparation of extraction pillars for their removal under the intensified underground mining conditions. A transportation schedule has been proposed to supply heavy tonnage loads by means of the suspended diesel rail locomotives as well as methods to calculate the expected loads on suspension members of the monorail road taking into consideration physico-mechanical characteristics of roof rocks within a development mine working.

Practical value.
It has been proved that under the conditions of the intensified mining operations, the recommended engineering solutions meet the requirements of the well-timed preparation of new extraction pillars. In addition, they are considered as a new tendency to improve current schemes of auxiliary transportation facilities for regional mines and provide operational reliability of the available underground transport equipment.
