Abstract

This study deals with the presentation of the mechanized longwall mining project introduced some years ago to increase productivity and output of Aegean Lignite Establishment (ELI) owned by Turkish Coal Enterprises (TKI) and the comparison of this method with a planned alternative new mining method called 'shortwall mining' where continuous miners will be introduced as primary coal excavation machines.
