Gate roads are driven to the back of each panel before longwall mining begins. The gate road along one side of the block is called the maingate or headgate; the road on the other side is called the tailgate. Where the thickness of the coal allows, these gate roads have been previously developed by continuous miner units, as the longwall itself is not capable of the initial development. The layout of Longwall could be either "advancing" type or of "retreat" type. In the advancing type, the gate roads are formed as the

Continuous miners vs. longwalls (Journal Article) OSTI.GOV

Compares longwall mining with continuous room-and-pillar mining of a 6-ft coalbed covering almost 5,000 acres. Considers capital investments, operating expenses and coal recovery. Points out that mine operators must also evaluate the effects of the difference in productivity on future cost increases, accident frequency and the environment.

Coal Mining Methods

Advantages of Longwall Mining Longwall mining is a very efficient coal producing technique. Longwall productivity is potentially higher than that of room-and-pillar mining, because longwall mining is basically a continuous operation requiring fewer workers and allowing a high rate of production to be sustained. The amount of coal recovered is also
