Coal mining methods also influence the kind and amount of subsidence that can appear at the surface. back to table of contents Mining Methods Room and Pillar Mining. Among the duties of this office are: ensuring that active coal-mining operations are properly reclaimed, thereby assuring the restoration of lands affected by mining to productive uses; regulating repair to land and structures damaged as a result of mine subsidence resulting from underground coal mining; and inspecting all active coal-mining.
