2019-9-16 · The sudden collapse of approximately 3 Ha of room-and-pillar workings at a limestone mine in southwestern Pennsylvania in 2015 resulted in an air blast that injured three mine workers. Subsequent investigations showed that an area encompassing 35 pillars had collapsed. The pillars were 9–10 m wide and up to 18 m high. A notable geologic feature is the through-going joints that dip at 50–80 ...

Effect of the Dip and Excavation Orientation on Roof ...

2012-8-30 · ABSTRACT: Underground limestone mines typically use the room-and-pillar method of mining in the generally flat-lying limestone formations. In some cases the dip may exceed 5° which can result in unique roof instability problems. Stability may be further exacerbated by the presence of horizontal tectonic stresses.

2019-9-1 · Room-and-pillar (R&P) mining is a method of extracting a series of rooms (i.e., long horizontal openings) while leaving behind pillars of ore, rock, or coal. In hard rock masses, pillar widths are smaller than entry widths. Pillars can be constituted solely of ore or of ore and waste when the ore body is thin.

2019-7-8 · Mining-induced subsidence consists of two forms of ground movements: active and residual subsidence. Active subsidence occurs simultaneously with the mining operation, whereas residual subsidence takes place in the post-mining period (Bhattacharya et al. 1986).Some active subsidence is attributed to the elastic compression of pillars, roof deflection, and pillar settlement on the floor strata.
