Bord-and-pillar: Bord-and-pillar or room-and-pillar is the oldest underground mining technique and was common in NSW before longwall mining began in the 1960s. This method uses a grid of tunnels and involves progressively cutting panels into the coal seam whilst leaving behind pillars of coal to support the mine....

Coal Mineral Fact Sheets Australian Mines Atlas

Underground coal mining in Australia is done by either the bord and pillar or longwall method. In bord and pillar mining coal is extracted in a series of parallel tunnels (bords) cut at right angles by another series (cut-throughs). This leaves blocks of coal known as pillars which may be extracted in a second stage of mining....

Coal mining for Kids Kiddle

When coal seams are near the surface it may be economical to extract the coal using open cut (also referred to as open cast open pit mountaintop removal or strip) mining methods. Open cast coal mining recovers a greater proportion of the coal deposit than underground methods as more of the coal seams in the strata may be exploited....
