3 People Miner Operator1 Endloader Operator1 Mechanic1 Electrician1 General Laborer3 Foreman1 Total 8

4 People Labor shortage Two – twelve hours shifts / day Operate 4 – 6 days per week Maintenance 1 day per week Geographic locations change often Exposed to natures elements Perceived as a short term job

5 Reserves Seam heights 2.5 – 28 ft Sustain a 1-3 year project 40,000 – 200,000 tpm Best if not previously auger mined Competent roof or ability to leave head coal Mine bottom up

6 Equipment Spread Modified Continuous Miner Cascading Conveyor Cars Launch Vehicle Stacker - 54 inch belt Bulldozer - pushing coal 2 Endloaders – loading & unloading cars & loading trucks Water Storage Tank

13 Management Skills Long term mine planning Synchronization of equipment Synchronization of qualities/ markets Keeping available wall

14 Longwall/Highwall Similarities Sole purpose is to cut coal Initial reluctance to rely on the technology Typically the lowest cost coal from a mining complex Keeping gate roads ahead is as challenging as keeping wall available

15 Safety Mining Method NFDL Rate ADDCAR 0.00 Surface Mining 1.59 Underground Mining 5.72 ( 3 rd Qt YTD)

16 Productivity Mining Method TPEH Western Surface Mines 22.1 ADDCAR 18.3 Longwall Mines 5.0 Eastern Surface Mines 4.2 Non-Longwall Underground Mines 3.4 ( 3 rd Qt YTD)

17 Narrow Pit System Footprint reduced from 90 – 45 ft Continuous coal flow Fewer fines Horizontal & vertical guidance 1,200 ft penetration Purchase – lease – contract mine

18 ADDCAR Advantages Cascading cars Navigational System Volume

19 Conclusion If you keep wall …. you experience this
