Room and Pillar Mining - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The coal pillar and the mining width are designed using the room and pillar mining method, and the optimum panel size is determined by the longwall panel layout—“longwall panel layout with local shortwall mining.” It can reduce the waste of coal resources and also protect the surface structures. The mining layout of Zhangcun coal mine in Shanxi Lu’an is shown in

Room and pillar mines, Mining Techniques, Underground ...

The room and pillar system is used in mining coal, iron and copper ores mainly when found as manto or blanket sediments, stone and aggregates, talc, soda ash and potash. The key to the winning room and pillar mining is opting the optimum pillar size. If the pillars are so small the mine will fall down. If the pillars are so big then significant quantities of valuable material will be left ...

Retreat Mining, Room and pillar mining, Underground

Room and pillar mining proceed inner, away from the entrance of the mine. When the coal seam goes out or the mine's property line is reached, retreat mining is a method that recovers the supporting coal pillars, working from the back of the mine through the entrance, thus the word "retreat." Room and pillar mining leaves at the rear ...
