Underground mining and mining machinery

For example, in coal and other soft rock mines, continuous miners break and load the mineral to eliminate drilling and blasting; boring machines perform the same tasks in medium-hard rock. The cycle of operations in surface and underground mining differs primarily by the scale of the equipment.

COAL

Surface mining is used to produce most of the coal in the U.S. because it is less expensive than underground mining. Surface mining can be used when the coal is buried less than 200 feet underground. In surface mining, giant machines remove the top-soil and layers of rock to expose large beds of coal. Once the mining is finished,

Coal Types, Formation and Methods of Mining

Continuous mining is the most prevalent form of underground mining, accounting for 56% of total underground production. In continuous mining, a machine known as a continuous miner cuts the coal from the mining face, obviating the need for drilling and blasting. Another type of continuous underground mining is called longwall mining.
