  • Pillar Extraction using Continuous Miners underground

    Some methods of pillar extraction using continuous miners are: Pillar splitting where roadways are driven through the pillars formed on first workings; the remnant pillars left would not normally be stable over extended areas. In some cases "pockets" are driven into the pillars with no supports rather than drive roads fully through.

  • Key success elements of coal pillar extraction in New

    Irrespective of whether the mining method is a full or partial pillar extraction operation, the resultant method of extraction is very similar in that fenders are lifted on retreat (called pillar stripping), generally at a 60° angle. Geotechnically, extracting as close to 90° as possible is ideal, but this however would make it very difficult for a

    extraction mining technique (longwalling) is widely used, as it is inherently safer than pillar extraction1. The use of longwalling as a high extraction mining technique in the USA and Australia was initially stifled as a result of competent overburden creating roof control difficulties with the earlier types of longwall supports. In addition to this factor in South

    Three mining methods for full extraction in flat coal seams i.e., longwall (LW), shortwall (SW), and rib pillar extraction (RPE) are compared with each other in view of the introduction of a mechanized, self-advancing roof support. Features are shown according to which RPE appears most attractive under certain conditions. In this presentation, the mining methods are outlined and discussed

    06/05/2011· Full-Extraction Mining The full-extraction approach avoids the possibility of CPF altogether by ensuring total closure of the opening and full surface subsidence on completion of retreat mining. This approach does not require barrier pillars for overall panel stability; however, they are needed to isolate extraction areas and protect mains and bleeders. The factor of safety for the panel pillar remnants is much less than 1 to force them to fail immediately after retreat mining.

    to maximise the efficiency of the operation. Following t he completion of the first three full/partial extraction panels a change in mining method was undertaken due to variable caving. The adopted partial extraction method involves stripping the developed square pillars on four-sides on retreat to leave a load-bearing remnant coal pillar. The system of partial extracti on has been successful in

    Longwall mining involves the full extraction of coal from a section of the seam, or 'face' using mechanical shearers. The coal 'face' can vary in length from 100-350m. Self-advancing, hydraulically-powered supports temporarily hold up the roof while coal is extracted. When coal has been extracted from the area, the roof is allowed to collapse.

    Room-and-pillar mining. In room-and-pillar mining, coal deposits are mined by cutting a network of 'rooms' into the coal seam and leaving behind 'pillars' of coal to support the roof of the mine. These pillars can be up to 40% of the total coal in the seam although this coal can sometimes be recovered at a later stage. Longwall mining.

    Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually from an ore body, vein or (coal) seam.

One of such methods is the Bord and Pillar

Results indicate that, generally, the chain pillars yield as designed
