Sublevel Open Stoping originated in the early 1900’s in iron ore mines in Michigan, USA. It was developed over the years from a method originally known as short hole bench and train mining.Generally a large scale open stoping method, it is often referred to as long hole or blast hole stoping. A Typical Sublevel Open Stoping Operation

Fig. 1.1 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
Longwall top coal caving (LTCC) is a special type of longwall mining applicable to very thick seams (greater than 4.5m) where good quality coal is being left because "conventional" longwall equipment has not yet been designed to operate successfully beyond around 5m mining height.

The uniaxial compressive strength of the hangingwall is around 1 100 kg/cm2. This high strength causes the occurrence of big blocks4. Current longwall mining method applied in the mine
For sublevel stoping drilling can be done long in advance of the blasting. There are three different drill patterns that are usually used with sublevel stoping. Fan drilling is where holes are drilled fanning out from the roof of the sublevel. The diagram to the right shows the pattern as it would be applied to sublevel mining.
Impacts of underground mining have been reduced by continuous environmental endeavors, scientific, and engineering research activities, whose main object is the behavior and control of the undermined rock mass and the subsequent surface subsidence.

8.4.2b Sublevel Caving. Sublevel caving shares many similarities with block caving, with one notable exception, which is responsible for this method: the orebody is competent and will not cave under its own weight. Longwall mining by contrast does not require this gravity flow of the caved material, and as such, it is well suited for

May 21, 2019· Longwall Mining: Large coal blocks are identified underneath the earth’s surface and usually fit in the dimensions of 100-300m in width by 1000m to 3000m in length. This block of coal is then extracted in slices by undercutting, where it is then blasted and drilled. The remnants are placed on conveyor belts until the entire block is extracted.
Underground Mining Methods presents the latest principles and techniques in use today. Reflecting the international and diverse nature of the industry, a series of mining case studies is presented covering the commodity range from iron ore to diamonds extracted by operations located in all corners of the world. Industry experts have contributed 77 chapters.
3D numerical modeling of longwall mining with top-coal caving. Therefore, in sublevel caving, if half of the extraction ellipsoid is inscribed in the body of coal, then a maximum of 50% of coal volume can be extracted without dilution.In sublevel caving applied at a thick-coal seam, the opening dimensions used for top-coal drawing are
each sublevel is drawn back; the broken ore is drawn off through the funnel-shaped raises, which leaves a large open stope. The sublevels are driven about 25 ft. apart vertically, and 8 to 10 ft. are shot off from each bench from the sublevel below.
A bi-directional shearing machine mines a longwall face at the bottom of a thick mineral seam in a retreat operation under the protection of a row of adjacent powered roof supports each of which extends in a direction transverse to the solid face. Progressive advance of these roof supports allows the overlying mineral strata to cave. Each roof support is separated into articulated forward and
15.3 Longwallcoal mining -Micro-seismic events show that rock fracture or shear occurs generally 30 ~ 50 m, but as much as 80 m, ahead of the face, and up to 100 m above or below the face. 15.3 Longwallcoal mining 15.3.4 Face support
Longwall and caving methods are distinguished from other mining methods by the fact that the near-field rock undergoes large displacements so that mined voids become self-filling. In caving methods, the far-field rock may also undergo large displacements.
SDV Longwall Support managing director Scott Vella said the JV would mean increased opportunities for mining companies operating in Queensland through the supply of underground mining equipment at a lower cost while maintaining Australia’s standards.

SUBSIDENCE PRODUCED BY LONGWALL COAL MINING The mechanical aspects of the subsidence pro cess in flat-lying coal bearing rocks mined by longwall methods are reasonably well known, compared to room-and-pillar mining, and are documented abundantly in the literature. This knowledge may be summarized as follows.
Longwall mining is an underground mining method that can maximize coal production in coal beds, which contain few geological discontinuities. In these operations, a mechanical shearer progressively mines a large block of coal, called a panel, which is outlined with devel opment entries or gate roads.
Longitudinal longhole retreat is a branch of the generic mining method known as sublevel stoping. For longitudinal retreat the long axis of the stope is along (or parallel) to the strike of the orebody. It may also be referred to as bench stoping or sublevel benching.
In the presented Velenje case of underground sublevel longwall mining where coal is being exploited both horizontal and vertical, backfilling processes and accompanying fracturing in the coal layer, and rock mass are causing uncontrolled subsidence of the surface above. 3D point clouds of the study were acquired in ten epochs and at excavation heights on the front were measured at the same epochs.

Longwall mining is a type of caving, applied to a horizontal tabular deposit such as coal. While block and sublevel caving are essentially vertically advancing metal mining methods, longwall mining is applied to relatively thin and flat-lying deposits – most often coal, but …
"Longwall sublevel caving" is a mining method where roof coal is rubblized above the shields and allowed to flow through a trap door in the top of the shields. The coal is subsequently directed either to the face conveyor or to a second conveyor inside the shields.

Longwall mining or coal pillar extraction by any other method causes the roof to subside and the floor to heave. The “gas emission space” created by such coal extraction can extend 1000 ft above and 250 ft below the working seam depending on the width of the panel.
The mining methods include sub-level open stoping (50 per cent. of ore, used for steeply dipping relatively wide ore bodies), shrinkage stoping (25 per cent., steeply dipping narrow veins), longwall mining (15 per cent., shallow-dip narrow veins) and inclined room-and pillar (10 per cent., shallow-dip wide ore bodies).
• Like sublevel stoping, excavated materials is dumped through an ore pass/chute to a central haulage drift • Backfilling is a separate unit operation performed once all material has been mined from stope or sub level • In overhand cut and fill, the fill serves as the working floor for mining material in the sub level …

Sublevel caving is a longwall mining method used widely in Europe to mine thick seams. As the face advances along the bottom of the seam, chutes located at the top of the shields open and the top coal, loosened by blasting, falls onto a conveyor.
