Pillar Strength and Design Methodology for Stone Mines

Underground stone mines in the United States use the room­ and-pillar method to extract sedimentary formations that are generally flat lying. Pillar stability is one of the prerequisites for safe working conditions in a room-and-pillar mine. Unstable pillars can result in rock sloughing from the pillar ribs and can

Room and pillar mining

Room and pillar (variant of breast stoping), is a mining system in which the mined material is extracted across a horizontal plane, creating horizontal arrays of rooms and pillars. To do this, "rooms" of ore are dug out while "pillars" of untouched material are left to support the roof overburden.Calculating the size, shape, and position of pillars is a complicated procedure, and is an area of
