    Underground Mining Methods presents the latest principles and techniques in use today. Reflecting the international and diverse nature of the industry, a series of mining case studies is presented covering the commodity range from iron ore to diamonds extracted by operations located in all corners of the world. Industry experts have contributed 77 chapters/5(5).   Developments are achieved for the automation of mining machine. After the description of a real test, many lessons are learnt to construct the automation system of coal extraction in underground mine. Additionally, much experience can be immediately applicable to other longwall mining by: 2.

White Paper: Efficient Mining of High Longwall Seams Thru Automation of Longwall Top Coal Caving. Longwall mining is an expensive undertaking – from the preparation of the site to capital investment in the equipment. That is why longwall owners have high performance expectations, especially in tough economic times when commodity prices are low.

extremely well suited for automation which is the subject of the pre- sent study. Automating longwall coal extraction will not only in- crease production but also minimize the amount of foreign material taken along with the coal thus reducing sorting time and cutter bit wear.

Listak 1 and Deno M. Pappas 2 ABSTRACT This U.S. Bureau of Mines report describes the. Describes longwall mining and compares it with other underground mining methods. Describes major changes in the geologic, technological, and operating characteristics of longwall mining over the past decade.

Shows how changes lead to dramatic improvements in longwall mining productivity. References for technology and historical development.CSIRO’s longwall automation technology can deliver productivity increases of up to 10 per cent, but it also provides scope for much more than increased productivity – it can also improve safety by reducing the level of hands-on interaction of miners with machinery in hazardous underground areas.Automation.

Longwall mining has traditionally been a manual process in which alignment of the face equipment was done with string lines. Technologies have been developed which automates several aspects of the longwall mining operation, including a system that aligns the face of the retreating longwall panel perpendicularly to the gate-roads.
