Equipments Used In Board And Pillar Coal Mining Method

Doctoral Dissertations - Scholars' Mine, Missouri

solving mine design and production sequencing problems in room and pillar mines (R&P). The specific objectives were to: (1) apply Discrete Event Simulation (DES) to determine the optimal width of coal R&P panels under specific mining conditions; (2) investigate if the shuttle car fleet size used to mine a particular panel width is optimal in

Hard-rock room and pillar -

Background. Room and pillar is one of the oldest existing mining methods, dating back over 1000 years. In its early use, detailed stope planning was very uncommon and mine operators would typically follow apparent high grade areas, leaving pillars only when necessary to stabilize openings.

Mechanisation is growing in underground mining

Major minerals mined in India through underground mining are coal, zinc, copper and gold. Among these, there is high level of mechanisation selectively in zinc and coal mining, whereas all other minerals are mined through drill and blast method. But there is increasing trend of continuous mining mechanisation in coal mining by adopting

ADVANTAGE OF BORD AND PILLAR METHOD

• Low Recovery – Room and Pillar can have one of the lowest recovery rates of any underground mining method. There must be significant reserves left behind to support the mine. Pillars may contain high grade ore which cannot be recovered. Only 35% coal or minerals exhaust.

Bord and pillar mining – Coal and coal mining –

Bord and pillar mining. This diagram shows the traditional method of bord and pillar mining. Miners extracted coal along roadways or bords, with the coal between the bords acting as pillars holding up the roof. The outer pillars were then mined, leaving the roof to collapse in a controlled way as the miners
