Research and Innovations for Continuous Miner's Cutting ...

2009-9-17  (Roepke, et al, 1995) indicated that a continuous miner produces 70% of total dust while sumping, and only 20% while shearing. The remaining 10% is attributed to gathering and loading. 3 RESEARCH ON ROCK/COAL CUTTING Efficient rock/coal cutting is a result of the optimum use of available resources in a continuous mining system.

Continuous miners vs. longwalls (Journal Article)

@article{osti_5824888, title = {Continuous miners vs. longwalls}, author = {Nilsson, D and Reddy, N A}, abstractNote = {This article argues that higher coal recovery and greater net present capital values (NPCV) makes longwall mining more profitable than continuous mining over a longer period. Compares longwall mining with continuous room-and-pillar mining of a 6-ft coalbed covering almost ...

Longwall Mining Overview Introduction

LONGWALL MINING Overview. In the method of secondary extraction known as longwall mining a relatively long mining face (typically in the range 100 to 300m but may be longer) is created by driving a roadway at right angles between two roadways that form the sides of the longwall block, with one rib of this new roadway forming the longwall face.
