Optimization of Continuous Miner Operations in Bord

2020-6-18  Fish bone Method: The method involves extraction of coal is done by making split in the pillar and slices using continuous miner in level direction first and then driving a push out in the dip direction. A Diagonal line of extraction of pillars is maintained during the extraction of coal and sequence is so adopted to allow the caving of the roof in the dip direction.

Pillar Strength and Design Methodology for Stone Mines

2012-8-30  Underground stone mines in the United States make use of the room-and-pillar method of mining. A prerequisite for a safe working environment is that the pillars should adequately support the overburden and the pillar ribs and rooms should remain stable during mining. At present pillar dimensions are either based on experience at neighboring mines or on strength equations that were developed for metal or non-metal mines. This paper presents a pillar design methodology that was developed from a study of pillar performance in operating stone mines. Data were collected that describe the rock mass quality, pillar conditions, mining dimensions and intact rock strength.The results showed that current mining practices have resulted in generally stable pillar layouts with no recent cases of extensive pillar collapses.However, a small number of single failed or failing pillars were observed in otherwise stable layouts. Numerical analyses were used to supplement the observations and develop a pillar strength equation that describes the stable and small number of failed pillars observed. The developed strength equation can be used to design stable pillar

Pillar sizes and spans have undergone many changes since the operation commenced, and current panel spans (bord widths) and pillar holings (splits) are 9.0 m. Pillars are designed using the Hedley and Grant pillar strength formula (Equation 1).
