Coal pillar extraction at deep cover: With special

May 01, 2011 Research Highlights Indian geo-mining scenario of coal pillar extraction is provided. Status of bord and pillar mining for deep coal seams is reviewed. Inherited instability issues of natural support during depillaring of a deep seam under competent roof (high stress conditions) are discussed. Influence of caving of competent overlying strata during extraction of deep seated pillars is shown

Pillar Extraction an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Pramod Thakur Ph.D., in Advanced Mine Ventilation, 2019. Abstract. Longwall mining or coal pillar extraction by any other method causes the roof to subside and the floor to heave. The “gas emission space” created by such coal extraction can extend 1000 ft above and 250 ft below the working seam depending on the width of the panel. Any coal seam contained in the gas emission space will

Coal pillar extraction experiences in New South Wales

extraction mining technique (longwalling) is widely used, as it is inherently safer than pillar extraction1. The use of longwalling as a high extraction mining technique in the USA and Australia was initially stifled as a result of competent overburden creating roof control difficulties with the earlier types of longwall supports.

Room-and-pillar with retreat mining is a high-extraction mining method, generally recovering greater than 70% of the target coal seam. Anthracite Coal Anthracite coal is often described in layman's terms as 'hard coal' and while it is heavily metamorphosed and almost pure carbon, it is no harder or softer than bituminous, or 'soft' coal.

A. Abutment In coal mining, (1) the weight of the rocks above a narrow roadway is transferred to the solid coal along the sides, which act as abutments of the arch of strata spanning the roadway; and (2) the weight of the rocks over a longwall face is transferred to the front abutment, that is, the solid coal ahead of the face and the back abutment, that is, the settled packs behind the face.

Longwall mining is one method of pillar extraction, now the most common method in use in Australia, and probably worldwide. Before longwall mining methods had been developed to operate satisfactorily in most conditions, a lot of pillar extraction was carried out using continuous miners, and such methods are still in use in places for a variety
