Tata Steel's West Bokaro Divison has inaugurated 'High Wall Mining', a unique coal mining initiative that provides a solution to mine coal that is blocked coal safely in barriers. This technology will help in extracting 30-35 per cent of the blocked coal. While it is touted as an eco-friendly and efficient method of coal extraction, High Wall Mining is also the safest method of extraction as it does not require any personnel to go underground. The company expects to produce 5 lakh tonne per annum through this method.
