Dec 10, 2018· Longwall mining accounts for around 90 per cent of Australia's underground coal production. Traditionally a mechanical shearer cuts along the coal seam beneath a roof supported by hydraulic jacks, exposing miners to multiple risks on a daily basis.
The Longwall Top Coal Caving (LTCC) roof support allows mining to a total seam height of more than 10 m (33 ft) by using a longwall shearer to cut the bottom 2.8-3.0 m (9.2-9.8 ft) and then caving the top coal behind the roof supports onto a rear AFC. This type of longwall is in service for example at a mine in the Hunter Valley, Australia.

In this study, a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model developed in our previous work is used to model the effect of seal leakage on spontaneous heating of coal in longwall gob behind the seal. A single longwall panel using a Y-type bleederless ventilation system was simulated.
Coal mining - Choosing a mining method: The various methods of mining a coal seam can be classified under two headings, surface mining and underground mining. Surface and underground coal mining are broad activities that incorporate numerous variations in equipment and methods, and the choice of which method to use in extracting a coal seam depends on many technological, economic, …
Longwall mining 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.

Jan 13, 2015· HD Mining's Murray River Project, a proposed six million ton per year (6 Mtpa) metallurgical coal mine, would be Canada's first longwall mine.It will target coal deposits between 1300 and 2600 feet deep and run underneath the Murray River, about eight miles southwest of Tumbler Ridge in the Canadian province of British Columbia.
We have been designing and building longwall plows since 1941 – and things have come a long way. Technical developments since 1990 have once again established plowing as the preferred longwall mining method for seams below 1.8 m (71 in). plows offer world-leading features that other manufacturers cannot and a cost of ownership
