coal Room and pillar mining In this method of mining, miners remove the coal from a seam by driving a series of "rooms" into the coal. The rooms are, in effect, small entries that are dug progressively to the end of the coal seam. As the miners work into the seam, they leave pillars of coal behind at regular intervals. The pillars, which function as roof supports, vary in shape and size.
