Full Pillar Extraction Coal Mining

Seven full and partial pillar extraction operations were visited in New South Wales, Australia, in the early parts of 2001. Certain factors unique to these operations have led to the general success of the safe and economic extraction of these coal pillars. Some of these factors attributable to the overall success of these operations are discussed in this paper.

Room and pillar mining is defined by the fact that portions of the coal seam being extracted are left in place to support the roof of the mine. room and pillar mines are developed by using machinery to extract the coal seam in a grid like pattern through the development of a parallel series of extraction areas referred to as entries.

Description. total extraction is a misnomer and invariably some coal losses occur in the mining of pillars. fulls pillar extraction is by the pocket and fender method, the splitting method or the open end method, with extraction in the pillar, and in rows of pillars in planned sequence, using combinations of coal and timber and roofbolts for support.
