OPTIMAL ROOM AND PILLAR MINE SEQUENCING FOR

Room-and-pillar (R&P) mining is used by 90% of underground mines in the United States of America (USA) to extract flat and tabular deposits. Over 60% of coal produced in the USA comes from R&P mining (Tien, 2011). Mine planning and design is an important part of managing R&P mines

Identifying Optimal Mining Sequences for Continuous

Examples of constraints and boundary conditions Room-and-pillar mining has obvious geometric constraints, i.e. Cut #5 cannot be mined until Cut #1 and Cut #3 have been mined. Safety regulations dictate other clear constraints, i.e. Cut #1 and Cut #3 must also be bolted before Cut #5 can be mined

Robust Design of Pillar Arrangement for Safe Room-and

Oct 27, 2018 The arrangement of pillars is a key design parameter in the execution of the room-and-pillar mining method. The objective of this study is to provide safe, reliable and a robust design for pillar arrangements for economic and efficient mineral recovery. Four design parameters have been considered in this study, including the degree of pillar superposition, pillar stiffness, and the pillar

Toward Pillar Design to Prevent Collapse of Room-and

room-and-pillar mines are summarized. If the strength of a pillar in a room-and-pillar mine is exceeded, it will fail, and the load that it carried will be transferred to neighboring pillars. The additional load on these pillars may lead to their failure. This mechanism of pillar failure, load transfer, and continuing pillar failure can lead to the rapid collapse of very large areas of a mine. In
