Longwall Mining - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

longwall mining Mining. a mining method in which very long rectangular blocks of coal are defined during the development stage of the mine and then extracted in a single continuous operation by an automated cutting head moving parallel to the coal face. When the coal is cut, the working area is protected by a movable, powered roof support system.

Longwall Mining - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The longwall-mining method is a continuous mining system that was developed for mining coal deposits uniform in thickness and slope or where the overburden pressures may crush support pillars or for improving productivity. This method relies on the complete extraction of the coal in a designated area referred to as a panel (of solid coal).

Longwall mining - Global Energy Monitor

Longwall mining is a form of underground coal mining where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice (typically 1-2 m thick). The longwall "panel" (the block of coal that is being mined) is typically 3-4 km long and 250-400 m wide. Longwall mining produced 176 million tons of coal in 2007, about 15 percent of total U.S. production.

Introduction to Longwall Mining and Subsidence ver2

In longwall mining, a panel of coal, typically around 150 to 300 metres wide, 1000 to 3500 metres long and 2 to 5 metres thick, is totally removed by longwall shearing machinery, which travels back and forth across the coalface.

Longwall mining then begins at the farthest or outer end of the panel and “retreats” back to the main entry. The principal disadvantage of the retreat system is that lead time between driving the parallel entries and coal production is much greater than in the advance longwall system in which coal production can begin almost immediately. The tools, support system, and coal

Geomechanical issues in longwall mining - tu-freiberg

Longwall mining is used for flat-lying and tabular coal deposits. It enables mining of nearly the complete resource. The principle of longwall mining is to allow mined-out sections to collapse (Fig. 2). Gate roads are excavated around a panel with pillars left untouched to support the overlying strata there. These roads are connected at the ends by so called bleeders. The entry

What is Longwall Mining? (with pictures) - Info Bloom

Longwall mining machines consist of multiple coal shearers mounted on a series of self-advancing hydraulic ceiling supports. The entire process is mechanized. Longwall mining machines are about 800 feet (240 meters) in width and 5 to 10 feet (1.5 to 3 meters) tall. The miners extract "panels" -- rectangular blocks of coal as wide as the mining machinery and as
