7.3.4: Highwall Mining | ABC 123: Testing Site / Course

2015-7-3 · 7.3.4: Highwall Mining. Highwall mining is very similar to auger mining in its concept, where the entry into the coal seam in made at the highwall of the ultimate pit limit. The difference lies in the use of a more sophisticated machine, known as a highwall miner. The highwall miner shares some common elements with a continuous mining machine.

A study of highwall mining panel stability -

Highwall mining is a hybrid system capable of accessing these reserves for substantially lesser capital cost and the lead time than that of a full underground mine, while also capable of producing in excess of 1 Mt/year. Highwall mining also has a significant operating cost advantage over underground mining, because of the comparatively reduced labour cost component.
