The Hazards of 19th Century Coal Mining

There were two big engineering problems in mining coal underground: A system to drain water from the mine ; A system to ventilate the mine and to provide fresh air to the miners. A special problem in coal mines was the methane (a gas) that sometimes accompanied coal, and which could--and too often did--catch fire and explode.

A potential method for recovering energy from coal is through in situ gasification of deep coal seams that cannot be mined by sur-face mining methods. The thick coal seams in the Powder River basin are considered at-tractive in their potential for in situ gasifica-tion, and two separate small-scale test sites have been developed in Campbell County,

PA Mining History

The highest coal recovery is normally achieved when retreat mining is combined with room-and-pillar mining. This method is often referred to as room-and-pillar with retreat mining. Retreat mining is a systematic removal of coal support pillars once a mining section has been developed using standard room-and-pillar mining.

Longwall Mining Overview

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.

3 Methods of Coal Mining

o Blast: An older mining method that uses dynamite and explosives to break away the coal seam. Accounts for less than 5% of coal production. o Retreat Mining: One of the most dangerous coal mining methods. Pillars are used to hold up the mine roof as coal is extracted.

Machines Used in Coal Mining

Nov 28, 2018Conventional Mining. Conventional mining employs crews of miners who use explosives and drills to extract coal, which is then loaded onto cars for transport to the surface. This method presents higher risks to miners because of the explosives. The coal dust generated by the drilling and explosives is also a health hazard when continuously inhaled.

Surface mining

The method evolved from auger mining but does not meet the definition of surface mining since it does not involve the removal of overburden to expose the coal seam.

Coal 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. When is this method used?

Longwall mining

Longwall mining is a form of underground coal mining where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice (typically 0.6–1.0 m (2 ft 0 in–3 ft 3 in) thick). The longwall panel (the block of coal that is being mined) is typically 3–4 km (1.9–2.5 mi) long and 250–400 m (820–1,310 ft) wide.

Types of Jobs in Coal Mining

Mar 29, 2019Deep mining is when miners go deep into the ground to find coal, and it consists of two methods that are the room-and-pillar and long-wall mining. In the first method, coal deposits are mined by cutting a network of "rooms" into the coal seam. Pillars of coal are left behind to support the roof of the mine.

Digging deeper: Mining methods explained

The underground mining methods we use include room and pillar, narrow vein stoping and large-scale mechanised mining. Room and pillar mining is a style of mining where tunnels are driven in a chess board pattern with massive square pillars between them which are gradually cut away as the work proceeds. We use this for mining coal.

Mining coal . Coal miners use large machines to remove coal from the earth. Many U.S. coal deposits, called coal beds or seams, are near the earth's surface, while others are deep underground.Modern mining methods allow coal miners to easily reach most of the nation's coal reserves and to produce about three times more coal in one hour than in 1978.

Longwall mining is one of the oldest methods of mining coal. Before the widespread use of conveyor belts, ponies would descend to the deep, narrow channels and haul the coal back to the surface. Today, almost a third of American coal mines use longwall mining. Outside the U.S., that number is even higher.

Strip mining became the preferred method in southeastern Kansas in the 1930s, although underground mining continued there until 1960 and in Osage County until 1964. During strip mining operations, overlying soil and rock, called overburden, is stripped away using power shovels to expose coal beds too thin to be mined underground.
