Room and Pillar Mining

Long wall mining is a mostly automated process whereby long-wall mining machines are used to extract blocks of deposits as wide as the face of the equipment, and potentially kilometers long. Cutters are then used to cut the deposits from the face of the equipment. Room and pillar mining is a common underground mining method for mining oil shale.
