Longwall Mining Overview

LONGWALL MINING Overview. In the method of secondary extraction known as longwall mining a relatively long mining face (typically in the range 100 to 300m but may be longer) is created by driving a roadway at right angles between two roadways that form the sides of the longwall block, with one rib of this new roadway forming the longwall face.

Coal Mining Methods

Longwall mining and room-and-pillar mining are the two basic methods of mining coal underground, with room-and-pillar being the traditional method in the United States. Both methods are well suited to extracting the relatively flat coalbeds (or coal seams) typical of the United States. Although widely used in other countries, longwall mining

Longwall Mining – Mining Science and Technology

Longwall mining activities alter the exsisting ground stress field, this changed stress field is known as induced stress. Extraction of coal by longwall mining induces a redistribution of stresses causing the rocks near the mining excavation to accomodate a redistributed load. Effective and efficient longwall mining is dictated by the []
