The acquisition parameters are designed to acquire High Resolution Seismic data. High Resolution Seismic reflection method was applied in this study as coal seams displayed significant lateral and vertical change in terms of density and velocity compare to the surrounding lithologies, which makes us to easily identify minor faults, thinner reflections, and more lithology dependent continues reflections. The results of this case study show how the frequency content of the High Resolution Seismic Reflection Data during the seismic processing is successfully increased. There are many approaches for the frequency enhancement of seismic data, which range from deconvolution, spectral equalization (SPEQ), and Q Compensation. Especially, Deconvolution and Spectral Equalization (SPEQ) was utilized in this case study. Consequently, increasing the resolution of acquired High Resolution Seismic Reflection Data is useful for reducing underground mine-planning risks. The processing results of High Resolution Seismic Reflection were very encouraging largely in terms of interpreting coal seams and related faults.
