Coal Types Formation and Methods of Mining

Most underground coal is mined by the room and pillar method where by rooms are cut into the coal bed leaving a series of pillars or columns of coal to help support the mine roof and control the flow of airGenerally rooms are 2 000 feet wide and the pillars up to 300 feet wide At least 60 feet of coal was left between an underground mine and the surface if not the surface had a higher...
