This method uses a grid of tunnels and involves progressively cutting panels into the coal seam whilst leaving behind pillars of coal to support the mine.

Coal Mining - Mechanized Room and Pillar Mining Posted by Heading Out on June 27, 2010 - 10:43am This is the next in the series of Tech Talks on Coal Mining, and I'm now going to move more into more recent mining, rather than dealing with the historic background of the recent past.

Early Room and pillar mining did not include retreat mining, because they relied on manual labor to cut the coal at the front and the coal was then hauled from the mine by horse or donkey and wagon. Although coal recovery is relatively low using the room-and-pillar method, normally ranging between 35 and 70 percent, this method has been active in Pennsylvania's Bituminous coal fields since the

In 1874, the first mineshaft in Cherokee County was dug and coal was excavated using the room-and-pillar system in which substantial pillars of coal are left standing to support the overlying rock. Underground mining was dominant there for several decades, and the Weir-Pittsburg coal bed became the most extensively mined coal bed in Kansas history.

Announced yesterday, the permit authorizes Amfire Mining of Latrobe, Westmoreland County, to conduct room-and-pillar mining in 2,929.4 acres of the Upper Freeport Coal Seam. Room-and-pillar mining is a traditional mining method in which miners leave pillars of coal to support the roof and prevent subsidence as mining progresses.

Room and pillar mining involves cutting a system of rooms within the coal seem. Pillars are left in order to support the roof of the cut into coal seem. In a secondary mining method, called retreat mining, coal is systematically collected from the pillars, allowing the mine to close in behind them 2 .

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. A typical section through a coal

Points out that mine operators must also evaluate the effects of the difference in productivity on future cost increases, accident frequency and the environment.

Final technical report, October 1, 1978-March 31, 1982}, author = {Bieniawski, Z T}, abstractNote = {The objective of this research grant was to improve upon the design of roof spans and coal pillars in a coal mining technique known as room-and-pillar mining.

Room-and-pillar mining is a mining process that is exactly what the name suggests it to be. The mining area is dug out, divided the underground area into an assortment of rooms. The spaces between the rooms are called pillars; they are left behind to support the mined roof, (to keep the underground mine from collapsing).
