Longwall Top-Coal Caving: A productive and efficient alternative. Longwall mining is one of the most productive ways to produce coal, but longwall mines have trouble efficiently mining seams higher than 6 m (19.6 ft). Longwall Top-Coal Caving can more than double the resource recovery rate of normal longwall equipment working in high seams.

Longwall Top Coal Caving Application Assessment in Australia

The method employs both coal cutting of the lower portion of the coal seam accompanied by caving and reclamation of the ‘top’ coal. Coal is first cut from the longwall face using a conventional shearer and AFC arrangement working under hydraulic face supports that incorporate a rear coal conveyor and cantilever / flipper arrangement.
