Overview of CONSOL Energy Coal Operations
Where geology is favorable and CONSOL Energy reserves are sufficient, the company utilizes longwall mining systems in its underground mines. Mines equipped with longwall technology are highly mechanized and provide increased production.
An integral part of the longwall mining process is the continuous mining machines. These units are used to carve out the longwall panels by driving "entries" into the coal seam, providing access for miners and equipment, streams of air for ventilation purposes, the dimensions of longwall panels and escape routes.
