  • Longwall Mining

    The gate entries of the longwall face are formed as the coal is mined, with roadways formed adjacent to the gob. Each coal panel is separate from the adjacent workings with a solid barrier pillar. Longwall mining is an efficient and a high production mining method; a single longwall face can produce more than 25 000 tons of coal per day.
