The authors analyze the experimental evidence on the relation of gas emission rates in production faces and stress-strain behavior of the rock mass face area. Rock has been monitored by parameter of the artificial acoustic wavelet, coefficient of relative strains K and spectrum resonance frequencies. Equations for K coefficient dependence and methane concentration in the return air have been developed. The respective correlation ratios, regression equations and determination factors have been calculated.

Key words: rock mass stress-strain behavior, gas emission in production faces, top rock caving
