Pillar And Room Coal Mining

In room-and-pillar mining coal deposits are mined by cutting a network of rooms into the coal seam and leaving behind pillars of coal to support the roof of the mine. These pillars can be up to 40 of the total coal in the seam – although this coal can sometimes be recovered at a later stage.
