Pillar Extraction using Continuous Miners -

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.

Coal pillar extraction at deep cover: With special ...

2011-5-1  Indian geo-mining scenario of coal pillar extraction is provided. Status of bord and pillar mining for deep coal seams is reviewed. Inherited instability issues of natural support during depillaring of a deep seam under competent roof (high stress conditions) are discussed. Influence of caving of competent overlying strata during extraction of deep seated pillars is shown by case studies.

Pillar Extraction - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Longwall mining or coal pillar extraction by any other method causes the roof to subside and the floor to heave. The “gas emission space” created by such coal extraction can extend 1000 ft above and 250 ft below the working seam depending on the width of the panel.

2020-8-4  A mining method for pillar extraction was introduced at the Pinoura Mine in the South Eastern Coalfields Limited of Bilaspur, India, in the year 2010. It is a valuable method for the winning of coal resulting in 75% final recovery compared to high-capital-costs methods (i.e. longwall mining) in a given geomining condition.

Pillar Extraction SpringerLink

2016-2-3  Pillar extraction, (also referred to as retreat mining; pillar recovery; stooping; pillar robbing; and bord and pillar second workings) is the practice of forming a series of pillars and then partially or totally extracting some or all of the pillars, usually with mining operations retreating out of a panel. There are a number of basic pillar extraction methods, with numerous permutations being associated with
