2 days ago  Opencast mining – the predominant form of coal mining still happening in the UK – is carried out on the surface. It's used where coal reserves are scattered in shallow and thin seams. Workers strip off the top layers of land, using huge excavators and digging machines. They may use explosives to blast rock and gain access to the ://   Coal wash plant in Clay County, Kentucky. Most coal seams are too deep underground for opencast mining and require underground mining, a method that currently accounts for about 60 percent of world coal production.

During the coal review, the Trade and Industry Select Committee published its report on British energy policy Energy policy the market for coal. The Committee recommended, among other things, much tougher planning guidance on opencast coal :// The book then examines the assessment of the effects of alternative public policies on western coal development; opencast coal mining and the environment in the United Kingdom; mining ecology and environmental problems of coal mining in Australia; and mining, dewatering, and environmental :// 2 days ago  Although the United States has the vast coal resource described in the previous chapter, perhaps as much as 4 trillion tons, the key issue for policy makers is the amount of coal that is economically is not a fixed quantity, but depends on the geological resource, the market price, and the cost of mining.

Coal is valued for its energy content and since the s, 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.

After coal comes out of the ground, it typically goes on a conveyor belt to a preparation plant that is located at the mining site. The plant cleans and processes coal to remove dirt, rock, ash, sulfur, and other unwanted materials, increasing the heating value of the coal.

The elements of a surface mining operation are (1) topsoil removal and storage for later use, (2) drilling and blasting the strata overlying the coal seam, (3) loading and transporting this fragmented overburden material (called spoil), (4) drilling and blasting the Losses During Mining.

Mining of coal is undertaken broadly using two methods: surface and underground. In the case of underground mining, losses are high compared with those of opencast mining; the main causes of these losses are enumerated in the following subsections.

This is to “maximise economic recovery from remaining coal reserves.”(5) InBritish planning authorities considered twelve applications for new opencast coal mines.
