  • Longwall mining

    Oct 05, 2012This 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 thick). The Longwall panel (the block of coal that is being mined) is typically 3–4 km long and 250– 400 m wide. As a cut or slice is taken along the length of the wall, the supports are collapsed, advanced closer to the

  • Longwall, or not?

    Longwall mining requires high volume production to dilute fixed costs, proven favourable seam thicknesses and geological conditions, and little need for flexibility. In the U.S. today, with the added constraint of the Clean Air Act, there are fewer available large proven reserves of low-sulphur coal which are conducive to longwalling.
