Longwall Mining - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Longwall mining induces shearing as well as separation along the bedding planes, which may result in bending and subsequent fracturing of the rock layer. The bending and fracturing may change the in situ fluid or gas pressures, and the flow properties of rock mass, such as permeability and porosity.

Longwall Mining — Center for Coalfield Justice

Longwall mining is a deep mining technique capable of fully extracting huge panels of coal, frequently up to 1,500 feet wide and two miles long. Coal shearing machines known as “continuous miners,” remove a long wall of coal in a single slice as hydraulic jacks hold up the roof above and in front of the machine.

What is Longwall Mining? (with pictures)

Longwall mining is a highly productive underground coal mining technique. Longwall mining machines consist of multiple coal shearers mounted on a series of self-advancing hydraulic ceiling supports. The entire process is mechanized. Longwall mining machines are about 800 feet (240 meters) in width and 5 to 10 feet (1.5 to 3 meters) tall.

LONGWALL ADVANCE MINING – Mining Science and Technology

LONGWALL ADVANCE MINING. An alternative method of mining is advance longwall mining. In longwall advancing, the longwall face is set up a short distance from the main development headings. The gate entries of the longwall face are formed as the coal is mined. The gate roadways are thus formed adjacent to the goaf.

Longwall Mining Overview Introduction underground COAL

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.

Fact sheet - subsidence from longwall coal mining

How does longwall mining cause subsidence? As coal is excavated the weight of the overlying ground originally supported by the coal becomes supported only by the remaining pillars or walls. This causes the mine void walls to compress and the overlying rock to crack and tilt into the void. In longwall mines, the rock immediately above the void ...

Oct 06, 2021  During longwall mining, the stress arch developed upward by leaps and bounds with the bearing and fracture of key strata. When the overlying key strata were completely fractured, the stress arch disappeared. The results were verified using the field measurement data on the abutment pressure of the Y485 longwall face in Tangshan Mine.

Longwall Mining Citizens Against Longwall Mining

Longwall mining is a high extraction technique where coal is removed in 1,400 ft. panels that stretch for miles. Unlike traditional room and pillar mining, in a longwall mine no coal pillars are left in place to provide surface support above the panel. Hydraulic supports are used to hold the roof up at the working face of the coal seam.
