  • A Comparison Of Longwall & Continuous Mining Safety In US

    The first longwall system was introduced in 1960. By 1995, longwalls were producing more than 189 million tons of clean coal annually, surpassing continuous mining production for the second straight year. The mining of coal and other materials has not come without a huge loss of life and considerable human suffering.

    Stanley R. Michalski, in Coal and Peat Fires: A Global Perspective, 2011. Longwall Coal Mining. The longwall-mining method is a continuous mining system that was developed for mining coal deposits uniform in thickness and slope or where the overburden pressures may crush support pillars or for improving productivity. This method relies on the complete extraction of the coal in a designated

  • Continuous miners Introduction underground COAL

    The term "continuous" as applied to development machines has been one of the biggest misnomers used for mining equipment because, on development, they are usually anything but continuously cutting. The main delays mostly occur while roof support is installed and often waiting for shuttle cars to return from their discharge point for reloading.
