British coal: Proposed new opencast mine causes division
 
02:20
You might have thought that coal mining in Britain belongs in the past. The last deep mine closed a year ago but surface mining continues, even if the government is committed to phasing out fossil fuels. Now a proposal to open a new mine on a stretch of Druridge bay, on England's north-east coast, has aroused strong feelings.

Coal Mine At Comrie Colliery - 1945 British Council Film Collection - CharlieDeanArchives
 
16:23
An overview of the progressive facilities at the Comrie Colliery coal mine in Scotland, with an emphasis on the steps taken to ensure worker welfare there. Trivia: When The New Mine was made in 1945, there were around 1000 coal mines operating in the UK. Today, there are less than a dozen. Described in The New Mine as a "pit-head of the new world", Comrie Colliery in Fife operated from 1936 to 1986. In spite of the film's optimistic claim that the mine would "stand the test of time", and comments on the safety of its operations, the Comrie Colliery site is now derelict. Despite The New Mine's praise for the cutting-edge techniques employed at the mine, the disused site was recently described by Fife Council as the "largest area of post-industrial dereliction in West Fife". The land around the mine, clearly discernible from above, is reported to be heavily polluted, contaminated with cyanide, and the 40 metre high pile of coal waste (seen forming in the film) has purportedly been burning since the 1970s. Nonetheless, there has recently been movement towards the redevelopment of the site. This film has been made available by the British Council Film Collection for non-commercial research and educational purposes . .

Why cleaning up abandoned coal mines is so important -- and difficult
 
05:26
With coal production at its lowest level in 30 years, abandoned mines around the country are causing major environmental problems. They can catch fire, and debris from them can contaminate the water supply. But mine cleanup is an effort difficult to fund, since many of the coal companies responsible for them are claiming bankruptcy. Inside Energy’s Leigh Paterson reports from western Pennsylvania.

The Miners Strike - 1984
 
04:48
Remembering the 30th Anniversary of the miners great strike for jobs in the year of 84/85. A dedication to the men and women who fought not only for the right to work but in the pursuit of a better future, committed themselves to selfless determination in their fight to save their industry and ultimately their communities. On June 18th 1984 Britain witnessed some of the worst industrial violence the country has ever seen. The Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign are fighting for truth and justice for the miners who were victimised and falsely arrested by the police from many different forces during the picketing of the Orgreave Coking Plant in South Yorkshire on that summers day. 95 miners were arrested and charged with riot, an offence which carried the potential sentence of life imprisonment. The trials collapsed due to lack of evidence. No police force or officer has ever been disciplined or charged with perverting the course of justice, falsifying evidence and using violence against miners pursuing legitimate industrial action against the loss of jobs and the mining industry which threatened the collapse and demise of their communities. Please help us in the fight for Truth and Justice - http://otjc.org.uk/

Future of Coal
 
06:10
Despite major shifts in the industry and serious worries in coal communities, today coal still supplies nearly 40% of our electricity. According to the Bureau of Land Management, one out of every five homes and business in the US use electricity made from Wyoming coal. But what does the future look like for fossil fuels in a world where there is increasing pressure to keep them in the ground? For regions that have historically been dependent on jobs and revenue from coal and oil extraction, innovation is key. Ideas like clean coal, carbon sequestration, and carbon utilization are some of the potentially game-changing technologies aimed at saving an industry while reducing emissions.

Industry Uk Waves Farewell To Last Deep Coal Mine
 
01:17
UK waves farewell to last deep coal mine. An end of an industry era as Britain's last deep coal mine closes for good. As Grace Pascoe reports, cheaper imports, rising costs and a government push away from coal in Britain's energy mix have all caused the industry to slump. The last bastions of the coal industry. These miners leave the Kellingley Colliery in North Yorkshire for the last time. 50 years after it opened. Andrew Levinson is Kellingley's Welfare Chairman. UK Coal's Kellingley is Britain's last deep-cast coal mine. Tighter EU environmental standards were a blow to the already suffering industry. And cheap imports from countries like Colombia and Russia have priced domestic coal out of the market. Leaving around 450 miners out of work. Miner Garry Ward points the finger at the UK government. In the last century, the mining industry employed some 1.2 million people at nearly 3,000 collieries. This not just a closure of a mine, but the end of an era.

Threats of closure for key British mine

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Britain's biggest remaining coal mine, Daw Mill, could face closure within weeks. Even though there are sufficient resources there to sustain nearly 1,000 jobs for 20 more years, harsh economic times have resulted in the owners saying they would rather close it down than agree to the pay rise that miners are demanding. Hundreds could lose their jobs as a result. But over the years, the 700 mines across Britain have turned into just seven. And local communities are resigned to news about the potential closure of yet another one. Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from Warwickshire, England.

How is coal mined? - What is Surface Mining and Underground Mining - Video
 
08:10
How is coal mined? Read Full Story: http://www.spoonfeeding.in/2013/02/how-is-coal-mined-what-is-surface.html Mining is the process of removing coal from the ground. There are two types of mining: underground mining and surface mining. When the coal seam is fewer than 125 feet under the surface, it is mined by surface mining. Coal that is deeper than 125 feet is removed from the ground by underground mining. Underground mining is used when the coal seam lies deep in the earth. In an underground mine only some of the coal is removed. The coal that remains helps support the mine roof. Underground mines look like a system of tunnels. The tunnels are used for traveling throughout the mine, moving coal from place to place and allowing air to circulate in the mine. The coal that is mined is put on conveyor belts. The conveyor belts take the coal to the surface. There are three types of underground mines: slope, drift, and shaft. When the coal seam is close to the surface but too deep to use surface mining, a slope mine can be built. In a slope mine a tunnel slants down from the surface to the coal seam. A drift mine is built when the coal seam lies in the side of a hill or mountain. Drift mines may also be built in a surface mine that has become too deep. There are many drift mines in the eastern United States. The most common type of mine in Illinois is the shaft mine. These mines may be 125 to 1,000 feet deep. A large hole, or shaft, is drilled down into the ground until it reaches the coal seam.

Worker Health and Safety in a New Coal Mine in Scotland 1945 British Council Film Collection
 
06:04
This is clipped from the 1945 film -- The New Mine - an overview of the progressive facilities at a modern coal mine in Scotland, with an emphasis on the steps taken to ensure worker welfare there. 'From the original film description - A modern colliery in Scotland, situated in unspoilt country instead of an ugly mining town, has up-to-date machinery, the latest ventilation and safety devices, and new methods in mining practice. The surface buildings of this model colliery are built on symmetrical lines. - When The New Mine was made in 1945, there were around 1000 coal mines operating in the UK. Today, there are less than a dozen. Described in The New Mine as a "pit-head of the new world", Comrie Colliery in Fife operated from 1936 to 1986. In spite of the film's optimistic claim that the mine would "stand the test of time", and comments on the safety of its operations, the Comrie Colliery site is now derelict. Despite The New Mine's praise for the cutting-edge techniques employed at the mine, the disused site was recently described by Fife Council as the "largest area of post-industrial dereliction in West Fife". The land around the mine, clearly discernible from above, is reported to be heavily polluted, contaminated with cyanide, and the 40 metre high pile of coal waste (seen forming in the film) has purportedly been burning since the 1970s. At the time of construction, Comrie was the new showpiece pit of the Fife Coal Company. Important features included the use of forced-fan ventilation (unusual at the time), and of skip-winding for raising coal from the pit bottom. The skips were brought in from Germany, and one week before the outbreak of World War II, the German engineers responsible for their installation were called home with the job unfinished. Underground transport was fully mechanised, with locomotive haulage and belt conveyors. Comrie Mine was demolished during the latter part of 1989.

Coal Mining the Modern Way: Newcastle, 1957
 
02:27
A silent newsreel item from 1957 about mechanised coal mining procedures at the Awaba State Coal Mine, near Newcastle in New South Wales. The item opens with shots of miners going down into, and later leaving, the mine. We see older footage of miners underground using picks and shovels to break up the coal and load it onto carts. A pit pony takes the coal away. The newsreel contrasts this with the modern methods of cutting coal from the coalface using a machine. Two miners bore a hole in the coalface and set explosives. Coal is loaded into a truck using a mechanical loader and taken to storage bins by a locomotive. A conveyor belt takes the coal from the mine to the Crusher Shed where it is transported away by truck. Coal Mining the Modern Way, Newcastle, NSW, 1957. NFSA title: 128513

Down in a UK Coal Mine 1971
 
16:13
My best friend and I, while traveling in the UK in 1971, were privileged to go down into a working coal mine to the coal face and witness the entire process for an entire shift, and then were allowed to socialize with the miners in their club afterwards and we were not allowed to buy a single round. God bless these guys. I've always thought they got the shit end of the stick, but they manned up and kept going. I was 19 when this happened.

Columbia - Child coal mining situation addressed
 
02:40
T/I: 10:56:52 In Colombia parents are coming together to rescue their children from the highly dangerous job of underground coal mining. Driven by economic need, child coal miners are employed by mine operators in some of the most hazardous work conditions. Growing local and international concern about the situation has led to the formation of community action programmes intended to stop child labour in the mines. Children, parents and social workers meet to discuss economic and educational alternatives that will help to break the syndrome of poverty and child labour. Consequently, children are learning to create artworks made out of coal that can be sold in the city craft shops.

The Case For Coal (1984) National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) - coal strike
 
25:40
A Campaign Video made for the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and the wider Trade Union and Labour movement. Coal Not Dole. Produced by South Wales Miners' Video Project. and The Community Video Workshop, Cardiff. The miners' strike of 1984/1985 was major industrial action affecting the British coal industry. It was a defining moment in British industrial relations, and its defeat significantly weakened the British trades union movement. It was also seen as a major political and ideological victory for Margaret Thatcher and the Conservative Party. Coal was a nationalised industry and, as in most of Europe, was heavily subsidised. A number of mines ("pits") in the United Kingdom were profitable and remained open after the strike, including some operating as of 2007[1]. There were also a number of mines that were unprofitable and the government wanted to close. The viability of many of these mines was called into question but the government - in a hurry to avoid any further losses - closed many before reports were collated, instead of using temporary offers of increased redundancy pay to encourage miners into voting in favour of pit closures. In addition, all the mines required efficiency improvements in order to attain or increase their profitability, which was to be done by means of increased mechanisation. Many unions resisted this as it would necessarily result in job cuts. The strike became a symbolic struggle, since the miners' union was one of the strongest in the country. The strike ended with the defeat of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) by the Conservative government, which then proceeded to consolidate its free market programme. The political power of the NUM was broken permanently. The dispute exposed deep divisions in British society and caused considerable bitterness, especially in Northern England and in South Wales. Ten deaths resulted from events around the strike, which is exceptional in the history of British industrial relations.

Flame as an Early Fire Detector in Mines
 
00:27
This was clipped from the 1965 training film, Magic of Fire (23 minutes), produced by the US Bureau of Mines. By the early nineteenth century it had become known that firedamp became explosive when the flammable gas concentration was between approximately 5 and 15% by volume. On 25 May 1812 an explosion occurred at Felling Colliery, near Gateshead-on-Tyne, killing ninety-two men and boys. Reports of the circumstances behind this accident had such an impact on a London barrister published proposals for the formation of a society to consider ways of preventing such incidents. Called the Sunderland Society its first meeting was held on 1 October 1813. The main result of their deliberations was the invention by Sir Humphrey Davy, working under their auspices, of his now famous flame safety lamp. Despite the introduction of flame safety lamps into coal mines, explosions of firedamp remained a significant problem. Although no formal accident statistics were collected at the time, the number occurring seemingly continued along a rising trend that had been apparent before the Sunderland Society began its deliberations. Responding to this, in 1834 a petition was introduced before Parliament requesting that action be taken to do something about the situation. In response the House of Commons set up a Select Committee to study the occurrence of accidents in coal mines. Over the next four years it is probable that over three hundred coal miners died in explosions. Despite this, still no official action was taken in an attempt to prevent such from occurring. In June 1839 fifty-two men and boys were killed in an explosion at St Hilda Colliery, County Durham. A member of the local community was so moved that he suggested that a committee be formed to study the prevention of accidents in coal mines. The group was called the South Shields Committee. As a review of coal mining practices and safety, the report subsequently produced must be seen as a classic. Unlike any of the earlier reports into coal mine accidents, that of the South Shields Committee included a detailed discussion of how scientific instruments could be used to improve safety. The first Coal Mines Act was passed in 1850. This created a Mines Inspectorate with the power to enter any workings and advise the manager of any dangerous conditions found therein. It also required that all fatal accidents be reported to the Home Office within twenty-four hours of occurring. For the first time, this allowed an accurate assessment to be made of the causes of death amongst coal miners. This is taken from the 2007 paper, The Measurement of Air Flow in British Coal Mines: A Historical Review by I. D. Unwin, M. Phil, B.Sc., D.I.S., and available at: http://www.angelfire.com/mech/ians_coal_page/air_flow_2007.pdf

'End of an era' for coal mining in England
 
02:13
They are calling it 'end of an era'. Coal mining in England is no more as the last deep mining colliery in North England is set to close. Coal powered the Industrial Revolution but the shafts have been going silent one after another as technology and global fuel prices put the mining business at a disadvantage. I spoke to the manager and deputy director of the National Coal Mining Museum of England based in Wakefield. See what he had to say.
