Longwall mining

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.

Longwall Mining

Longwall Mining. Longwall mining is a form of underground coal mining that allows industry to mine massive blocks of coal more efficiently and with fewer miners than previous mining methods. Once done with pick and shovel and mules, underground coal mining progressed to using machines that could extract more coal at a faster rate of production.

What is Longwall Mining? (with pictures)

Longwall mining is a highly productive underground coal mining technique. 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.

Longwall Mining Method and Design

 · A longwall panel mined above or below a gob-solid coal boundary occurs frequently in the Eastern Coalfields when abandoned room-and-pillar or longwall workings are en¬countered in adjacent seams. The MULSIM/NL model was used to evaluate two design considerations related to the average vertical stress across the longwall face for this situation.
