R. Kayne Last Modified Date: 18 June 2020 . Retreat mining is the last phase of a common type of coal mining technique referred to as room and pillar mining. In room and pillar mining a mining machine known as a "continuous miner" bores a network of chambers or "rooms" into a coal seam, leaving behind an unexcavated pillar of coal in each room to support the roof of the mine.
