Room and Pillar Mining - an overview ScienceDirect

Pramod Thakur Ph.D., in Advanced Mine Ventilation, 2019. 21.3.4.1 Self-Inertization. In room and pillar mining, pillar extraction can be so designed that mined out area is submerged in water.This provides excellent inertization but is possible only in highly inclined coal seams. Most commonly, self-inertization is provided by the methane gas released from coal seams in the gas emission space.

bord and pillar coal mining - hotelshalam

The underground mining methods we use include room and pillar, narrow vein stoping and large-scale mechanised mining. Room and pillar mining is a style of mining where tunnels are driven in a chess board pattern with massive square pillars between them which are gradually cut away as the work proceeds. We use this for mining coal.
