Pillar extraction, (also referred to as retreat mining; pillar recovery; stooping; pillar robbing; and bord and pillar second workings) is the practice of forming a series of pillars and then partially or totally extracting some or all of the pillars, usually with mining operations retreating out of a panel. There are a number of basic pillar extraction methods, with numerous

    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. Any coal seam contained in the gas emission space will release gas contained
