         Mining methods. About 70–80% of thick coal seams are exploited by means of underground mining methods. Two mining methods, longwall and room-and-pillar, are generally used for the extraction of coal worldwide. Both of these methods are well suited to extracting the relatively flat coalbeds (or coal seams). The top seller was steam coal, which was desired by industry. The DuPont - Old Hickory, TN plant was a large purchaser of Overton and Fentress County Coal from the 's up to After , DuPont purchased much of its coal from Western Kentucky coal

Includes bibliographical references (p. ).Mode of access: Internet Topics: Coal mines and mining To compete in western coal markets, the cost of multislice mining must be within the range of normal longwall costs.

Analysis indicates that multislice operating costs should be within this range, and that multislice mining costs decrease as panel width increases. Relatively wide ( to ft) panels also provide increased coal ://   ic / multislice mining for thick western coal seams, pb, $ 28 ic / review of single-entry longwall mining technology in the united states, pb, $ 25 ic / user’s manual for the usbm in situ copper oxide mining cost models, pb, $ 6 circulars Coal seams as much as five metres thick can be mined in a single “lift” by the longw all method, and seams up to seven metres thick have been ext racted by conventional mining system s in one Wyodak, Big George, and Felix are multibillion-ton coal deposits in Paleocene and Eocene rocks along the eastern flank of the Powder River Basin; they contain beds of subbituminous coal as much as 61 m ( ft) thick, and average thicknesses are34, and m (,and 25 ft), :// R.

B. COAL LOADING, HAULING, AND HANDLING Surface mining coal recovery varies from about 80 percent in the thin eastern and midwestern seams to tetter than 95 percent in the thick western seams.
