Continuous miners vs. longwalls (Journal Article) OSTI.GOV

@article{osti_5824888, title = {Continuous miners vs. longwalls}, author = {Nilsson, D and Reddy, N A}, abstractNote = {This article argues that higher coal recovery and greater net present capital values (NPCV) makes longwall mining more profitable than continuous mining over a longer period. Compares longwall mining with continuous room-and-pillar mining of a 6-ft coalbed covering almost

High productivity continuous miner operation

2001-7-2  The dolerite intrusions in the coal seam meant longwall/shortwall mining was not feasible for the underground operation. When Sasol decided to introduce continuous haulage the higher capital investment was only justifiable if high production rates could be sustained. A Long-Airdox continuous haulage system was introduced with a Voest-Alpine ABM30.

Longwall coal mine Twentymile Colorado Mining

2021-5-5  The Twentymile longwall coal mine is located 30km south west of Steamboat Springs in north-western Colorado, USA. It is the world’s most productive underground coal mine in terms of output per man-year. The mine was developed by Cyprus Amax, which sold it to the German company, RAG Coal International, in 1999.

Factors Considered for Increasing Longwall Coal Age

2013-8-22  The process of increasing the width of longwall panels, while helping to increase coal production, reducing continuous miner development, and increasing coal reserve recovery, will result in additional design considerations for equipment, roof control, ventilation design, infrastructure and longwall moves.

Coal mining Underground mining Britannica

Coal mining Coal mining Underground mining: In underground coal mining, the working environment is completely enclosed by the geologic medium, which consists of the coal seam and the overlying and underlying strata. Access to the coal seam is gained by suitable openings from the surface, and a network of roadways driven in the seam then facilitates the installation of service facilities
