Oct 22 2014 0183 32 7 Practical importance of the Room and pillars method Method widely used in coal mines and non- carbon worldwide In the 70s in the USA over 50 of production underground coal came from this method Currently most of the production is still done by R P It is the mining method used in underground coal mining in southern Brazil...
Large room-and-pillar stone mining fundamentals The value per ton of ore for large room-and-pillar stone mines is typically low therefore productivity must be high Typical face areas are 122 m wide x 76 m high 40 ft wide by 25 ft high with 43 m 14 ft pulled with each blast Figure 1 This equates to over 1 000 tons of stone per...
