Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production.
Coal mining: Coal mining, extraction of coal deposits from the surface of Earth and from underground. Coal is the most abundant fossil fuel on Earth. Its predominant use has always been for producing heat energy.
FINAL TECHNICAL REPORT November 1, 2000, through October 31, 2001 Project Title: IDENTIFICATION OF COST CUTTING STRATEGIES FOR UNDERGROUND MINES IN ILLINOIS ICCI Project Number: 00-1/1.1A-1
Coal: Coal, solid, usually brown or black, carbon-rich material that most often occurs in stratified sedimentary deposits. It is one of the most important of the primary fossil fuels.
The Salem MC Mul-T:. This machine sits low, recovers thin seam coal that other machines can’t and can convert over to drill thicker seams too. The Salem MC Mul-T can handle one, two or three cutting heads, drilling holes from 16″ to 51″ in diameter.
A. Abutment - In coal mining, (1) the weight of the rocks above a narrow roadway is transferred to the solid coal along the sides, which act as abutments of the arch of strata spanning the roadway; and (2) the weight of the rocks over a longwall face is transferred to the front abutment, that is, the solid coal ahead of the face and the back ...

Thin sectioning was an early procedure used to analyse fossilised material contained in coal balls. The process required cutting a coal ball with a diamond saw, then flattening and polishing the thin section with an abrasive.
5. WHO IS A COAL - MINER ? A Description of the Occupations in and Around the Coal-Mines. T HIS I. W. W. handbook for coal-miners is going to be read with interest by tens of thousands of workers, inside and outside the I. W. W., who have never seen a "tipple," much less been down in a coal-mine.
