    Pillar and Stoop Coal Mining. 'Pillar and Stoop' was the term generally used in Scotland for this old method of mining in which only part of the coal is extracted and pillars of coal are left untouched to support the roof of the seam. It is also known by other names such as room and pillar, board and pillar, pillar and stall, stoop

  • Room and pillar mining Wikipedia

    Room and pillar (variant of breast stoping), also called pillar and stall, is a mining system in which the mined material is extracted across a horizontal plane, creating horizontal arrays of rooms and pillars. The ore is extracted in two phases. In the first, "pillars" of untouched material are left to support the roof overburden, and

    Pillar: A column of coal or ore left to support the overlying strata or hanging wall in a mine, generally resulting in a "room and pillar" array. Pillars are normally left permanently to support the surface or to keep old workings water tight. Coal pillars, such as those in pillarandstall mining, are extracted at a later period.
