Jan 25, 2018 Underground mining is more widely used to extract coal compared to opencast mining, as many coal seams are said to be found deep below the earth surface. The underground mining includes six type of mining methods that include longwall mining, continuous mining, room and pillar mining, blast mining, shortwall mining and retreat mining

May 13, 2013 In open pit mines the coal is extracted after having removed the rocks above. In the case of underground mines, the extraction is carried out in two ways: the method of “ abandoned pillars ” and that of “ long faces ”. The first method consists in extracting coal while leaving “pillars” toRead More
Jun 01, 2020 Coal miners use two primary methods to remove coal Surface mining is often used when coal is less than 200 feet underground. In surface mining, large machines remove the topsoil and layers of rock known as overburden to expose coal seamsRead More

Feb 14, 2016 Surface mining and deep underground mining are the two basic. methods adopted for mining coal. The choi ce of mining method depends primaril y on depth of burial, density of the overburden andRead More
Apr 07, 2020 The two main methods used for coal extraction are surface mining and underground mining. The methods used to extract coal depend on the geology of the coal depositsRead More
Coal seams can be mined by surface or underground methods (Figure 4.3), with the choice of mining method dictated by both technical and economic factors. The most important technical factors are the thickness of the coal seam, the depth of the coal seam, the inclination ofRead More
Surface coal mining generally involves the following sequence of unit operations: (1) clearing the land of trees and vegetation, (2) removing and storing the top layers of the unconsolidated soil (topsoil), (3) drilling the hard strata over the coal seam, (4) fragmenting or blasting the hard strata with explosives, (5) removing the blasted material, exposing the coal seam, and cleaning the top of the coal seam, (6) fragmenting the coalRead More
Apr 03, 2017 Coal Mining is the term that encompasses the physical extraction or removal of coal from the Earth’s Surface. When coal is used as fuel in power generation, it is referred to as Steaming or Thermal coal while those which are used to create coke for steel manufacturing is referred to as Coking or Metallurgical Coal. Coal can be mined by bothRead More

Often the extraction of coal from the seam during mine development is called “first mining”; the extraction of the remaining seam is called “second mining.” Mining methods. Modern underground coal-mining methods can be classified into four distinct categories: room-and-pillar, longwall, shortwall, and thick-seam. Room-and-pillar miningRead More
Dec 04, 2019 Dec 04, 2019 Strip mining is done only when the ore body is in close proximity to the surface. Open-pit mining – Open-pit mining is the method in which minerals or rocks are extracted from the Earth via an open pit or borrow. Mountaintop removal mining – Mountaintop removal mining (MTR) is done by mining coal seams underneath mountaintopsRead More
