Digging deeper: Mining methods explained Anglo

Large scale mechanised mining methods we use include: long-wall mining, where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice, usually by a large machine. sub-level-caving, where levels of the ore are blasted by explosives; and ; block caving, where large areas of the ore body are blasted and then extracted with the assistance of gravity.

Due to surface structures, lying just above shaft pillars, no subsidence was permitted. Therefore, R&P is trialled and adopted for the possible optimum recovery of the good quality coal.

Coal Mines in the Industrial Revolution History

2015-3-31  As a result, coal mines got deeper and deeper and coal mining became more and more dangerous. Coal shafts could go hundreds of feet into the ground. Once a coal seam was found, the miners dug horizontally. However, underground the miners faced very real and great dangers. Even with Watt’s improved steam engine, gas flooding was a real problem in mines. E xplosive gas (called firedamp would be found the deeper

2021-7-8  The oldest of the basic underground methods, room-and-pillar mining grew naturally out of the need to recover more coal as mining operations became deeper and more expensive. During the late 1940s, conventional techniques began to be replaced by single machines, known as continuous miners, that broke off the coal

Chemical, Air & Dust Pollution: Underground mining allows coal companies to dig for coal deeper into the ground. The problem is that huge amounts of earth and rock are brought up from the bowels of the earth. These mining wastes can become toxic when they are exposed to air and water. Examples of toxins are mercury, arsenic, fluorine and selenium.

are opencast methods where the coal seams are rela-tively shallow and thick, and panel and longwall mining methods for deeper coal seams. The area of application of opencast methods is largely determined by the size of the coal deposit and the coal-to-waste ratio. For longwall and panel mining, the areas of application are less clearly defined.
