UNDERGROUND MINING FACT SHEET

Coal is produced from underground mines using longwall or room-and-pillar mining technology. Longwall mining consists of developing the coal in rectangular blocks called "panels," using room-and-pillar mining equipment. Longwall panels are developed to maximize the recovery of coal and are up to 900 feet wide by 10,000 feet long.

Coal mining and transportation U.S. Energy Information

Mining coal. Underground mining, sometimes called deep mining, is necessary when the coal is several hundred feet below the surface. Some underground mines are 1,000 feet deep and extend for miles. Miners ride elevators down deep mine shafts and travel on small trains in long tunnels to get to the coal. The miners use large machines to dig out the coal.
