In a typical longwall mine, there may be one or more longwall sections and three or more continuous miner sections that are needed for the development of the mains, submains, and panels (Evans and Ramani, 2006). While the longwall section accounts for the bulk of the production from a longwall mine, the continuous miner sections, depending on

Continuous miners. Though there are many variations in design, continuous miners mostly consist of five main elements: poor and this is one of the reasons many mines have difficulty developing at rates adequate to prevent long delays on longwall production. As a result, development is an area receiving major attention in recent times.

The dolerite intrusions in the coal seam meant longwall/shortwall mining was not feasible for the underground operation. When decided to introduce continuous haulage the higher capital investment was only justifiable if high production rates could be sustained. A LongAirdox continuous haulage system was introduced with a VoestAlpine ABM30.

Longwall mining is a form of underground coal mining where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice (typically 12 m thick). The longwall "panel" (the block of coal that is being mined) is typically 34 km long and 250400 m wide. Longwall mining produced 176 million tons of coal in 2007, about 15 percent of total U.S. production.
