Appendix E: Coal Mining and Processing

Longwall mining is an automated form of underground coal mining characterized by high recovery and extraction rates, feasible only in relatively flat-lying, thick, and uniform coal beds. A high-powered cutting machine (the shearer) is passed across the exposed face of coal, shearing away broken coal, which is continuously hauled away by a floor-level conveyor system ( Figure E.2 ).
