Longwall mining Wikipedia

Longwall mining is a form of underground coal mining where a long wall of coal is mined in a single slice (typically 0.61.0 m (2 ft 0 in3 ft 3 in) thick). The longwall panel (the block of coal that is being mined) is typically 34 km (1.92.5 mi) long and 250400 m (8201,310 ft) wide.

Groundwater geochemistry in shallow aquifers above

Aquifers above high-extraction underground coal mines are not affected by mine drainage, but they may still exhibit changes in groundwater chemistry due to alterations in groundwater flow induced by mine subsidence. At two active longwall mine sites in Illinois, USA, glacial-drift aquifers were largely unaffected by mining, but the geochemistry of the bedrock aquifers
