Contour Mining

We’re coming round the MOUNTAIN

Gaining access to Appalachian Coal reserves is a vital part of West Virginia mining. Contour mining is one of many applications that can be used to extract reserves and meet the demand for coal.  The versatile lineup of Cat  products is unmatched when it comes to meeting extraction needs.  From the highly productive Highwall Miners to the stripping fleets of a 992K and 777Gs, Walker Machinery is ready to support our customers by providing the highest quality products with unmatched industry parts and service support.

Highwall Miners deliver an efficient, proven and durable method for mining coal from outcropping horizontal seams – recovering up to 70 percent of in-place coal.  The entire mining cycle can be completed by a three to four man crew, with no personnel going underground at any time.  Turn to Walker Machinery for all of your Highwall Miner needs.  Contact a Mining representative today.
