The longwall face is indicated by the number 8 in the diagram Fig 11 Cutaway View of a Typical Longwall Mine In longwall mining, a panel of coal, typically around 150 to 300 metres wide, 1000 to 3500 metres long and 2 to 5 metres thick, is totally removed by longwall shearing machinery, which travels back and forth across the coalface...

LONGWALL MINING Overview In the method of secondary extraction known as longwall mining a relatively long mining face typically in the range 100 to 300m but may be longer is created by driving a roadway at right angles between two roadways that form the sides of the longwall block, with one rib of this new roadway forming the longwall face...
