Selecting longwall mining at depths >600 m, since both surface mining and bordandpillar mining may not be feasible Insuring the import of spare parts remains easier than it was in the past, and looking into the potential for indigenous manufacture thereof Despite its disadvantages of low flexibility, low selectivity, and high capital investment, longwall mining is recommended because of

What is Longwall Mining? (with pictures) wiseGEEK

· Longwall mining is a highly productive underground coal mining technique Longwall mining machines consist of multiple coal shearers mounted on a series of selfadvancing hydraulic ceiling supports The entire process is mechanized Longwall mining machines are about 800 feet (240 meters) in width and 5 to 10 feet (15 to 3 meters) tall The miners extract "panels" rectangular

Longwall method | coal mining | Britannica

In coal mining: Longwall mining In the longwall mining method, mine development is carried out in such a manner that large blocks of coal, usually 100 to 300 metres wide and 1,000 to 3,000 metres long, are available for complete extraction (see photograph ) A block of coal Read More

Longwall mining Global Energy Monitor

Longwall mining is a form of underground coal mining where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice (typically 12 m thick) The longwall "panel" (the block of coal that is being mined) is typically 34 km long and 250400 m wide Longwall mining produced 176 million tons of coal in 2007, about 15 percent of total US production

History of Longwall Coal Mining In Illinois ILMINES WIKI

· Longwall Mining Method in Illinois As was the case in Great Britain, longwall mining in Illinois used many different overall designs, but shared similar elements of removing all coal along a continuous face, placing or packing rock into the area where coal was removed, downward movement of the roof and overburden where the coal was removed and lowering of the ground surface
