Retreat mining Wikipedia

Retreat mining is the removal of pillars in the underground mining technique known as room and pillar mining. In the first phase of room and pillar mining, tunnels are advanced into the coal or ore body in a rectangular pattern resembling city streets. Pillars are left between tunnels to support the weight of the overburden. The first phase is known as "mining on the advance," from the entrance toward the further

Retreat Mining, Room and pillar mining, Underground Mining

Retreat Mining. Retreat mining is the last phase of a general kind of coal mining technique referred to as room and pillar mining. In room and pillar mining a mining machine called as "continuous miner" bores a network of chambers or "rooms" into a coal seam, leaving at the back an unexcavated pillar of coal in every room to support the roof of the mine.

May 20, 2014· In retreat mining, large pillars of coal are initially left in place during mining to support the weight of the overburden, then later the pillars are extracted for their coal, with the roof intentionally and systematically collapsed behind the removed pillars. Mines take extra measures to try to ensure safety during retreat mining, including

Longitudinal longhole retreat QueensMineDesignWiki

Longitudinal longhole retreat is a branch of the generic mining method known as sublevel stoping. For longitudinal retreat the long axis of the stope is along (or parallel) to the strike of the orebody. It may also be referred to as bench stoping or sublevel benching.

Vertical Retreat Mining (VRM) or Vertical Crater Retreat (VCR)

The word ‘Retreat’ in ‘Vertical Retreat Mining’ refers to the blasting progression. As each charge is loaded and detonated with this process repeated, the remaining ore to be blasted is "in retreat" upwards until a section of about 7 m to 17 m is left at the top of the stope.

Retreat mining has always been an integral part of underground coal mining. 1 . 1. In this report, the term ―retreat mining‖ will refer exclusively to room-and-pillar retreat mining, and will not include longwall mining. Longwall mines are generally much larger than room-and-pillar mines, employing about

Vertical Crater Retreat

Mining retreats horizontally as successive vertical slices are blasted. Vertical block mining is the term most often used for this method. In VBM the workplace is divided into a series of vertical blocks and the blocks may be nined on a retreat basis working from the ends of the workplace.

Longwall Mining an overview ScienceDirect Topics

There are two methods of longwall mining. In retreat mining, the longwall face is installed and as mining continues into the panel the entries are allowed to collapse behind the face line to form part of the gob. In advance mining, the longwall face is set up a short

Dec 24, 2020· The PEA proposes the development of an underground mine using a sublevel blast-hole retreat with cemented paste backfill as a mining method. The mining method proposed includes the mechanised short-hole development of the main decline, access ramp, level development and crosscut drives as primary and secondary accesses to the mineral deposit on

The mining method mostly used is a transverse primary and secondary longhole method. Usually, the development is done two years in advance of the production schedule. Therefore, when narrower areas are encountered in these sectors, the mining method generally used to recover these stopes is the longhole retreat method.
