Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History 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. In the United Kingdom and South Africa a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers. Small-scale mining of surface deposits dates back thousands of years. For example, in Roman Britain, the Romans were exploiting most of the major coalfields by the late 2nd century AD. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining

When British Coal Was King - BBC Mining Part 1
 
15:00
Timeshift explores the lost world of coal mining and the extraordinarily rich social and cultural lives of those who worked in what was once Britain's most important industry. It's a story told through a largely forgotten film archive that movingly documents the final years of coal's heyday from the 1940s to the 1980s. One priceless piece of footage features a ballet performance by tutu-wearing colliers. Featuring contributions from those who worked underground, those who lived in the pit villages, those who filmed them at work and at play and those - like Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall - who have been inspired by what made coalfield culture so unique. Narrated by Christopher Eccleston

Coal Mining: The Disasters and the History of Mine Safety and Health Legislation
 
11:22
A public domain video A film about the history of underground coal mining throughout the years. The disasters and the health regulations. -The Monongah Mining Disaster was the worst mining accident in American history; 362 men and young boys were killed in an underground explosion on December 6, 1907 in Monongah, West Virginia. -Following a decade in which the number of coal mining fatalities exceeded 2,000 annually, Congress established the Bureau Of Mines in 1910 as a new agency in the Department of the Interior. The Bureau was to investigate accidents, advise industry, conduct production and safety research, and teach courses in accident prevention, first aid, and mine rescue. However, Congress did not empower the federal inspectors to enter and inspect mines until 1941, and did not authorize a code of federal regulations for mine safety until 1947. The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Acts of 1969 and 1977 set greater safety standards for the industry. Where annual mining deaths had numbered more than 1,000 a year in the early part of the 20th century, they decreased to an average of about 500 in the late 1950s.

This picking belt is capable of dealing with nearly 150 tonnes per hour. The cleaning of the small coal which you will notice have been removed and which is being cleaned in a special plant." CU Coal being sorted. MS Coal elevator. Voice "We are now viewing the special plant for cleaning the coal below 3" mesh. On the left is the raw coal elevator. The coal and shale is fed into the primary wash box. This box separates the coal and the shale by the upward pulsation of the water in the box. This pulsation is caused by these valves that you see on the opposite side allowing air to pulsate the water upwards and downwards. The bed of coal and shale is raised up, the shale being heavier than coal sinks to the bottom onto the perforated plate and the coal is carried forward by the flow of the water. The shale being sunk to the bottom is elevated by the shale elevator to the storage tanker and is now ready to be taken away to the waste head. The coal leaves the end of the primary box for the sizing screen". Various shots of the process described. GV Tank engine pulls away with line of trucks.

A Brief History of the UK Coal Miners Strike 1984 85
 
06:12
The video looks at the UK coal miners strike which took place between 1984-85. The main leaders reviewed in the video are Arhur Scargill and Margaret Thatcher. Following the Coal Miners strike Trade Unions within the UK lost a lot of power and the nationalised coal industry was reduced massively. There was often battles between the police and miners during the strike. However, the media was very biased against the strikes until channel four filmed from the miners perspective. The video looks at the impact of the UK Miner's strike made to the miners families and the impact it had n families and communities are often over looked. The Coal industry is still active today however, not to the scale that it was in the 1970's and 80's.

Coal mining in America's heartland | DW Documentary
 
42:26
West Virginia, USA - under its wild mountain idyll hides the "black hell": A labyrinth of dark tunnels - hard life in a coal mine. [Online until: 15 August 2019] "Wild, wonderful West Virginia” - that’s how the small state nestled in the Appalachian Mountains bills itself. This documentary reports on the daily struggle facing local coal miners hoping for help from Donald Trump; a sheriff combating the opioid epidemic that has already claimed thousands of lives; and a Cherokee environmental activist whose efforts have earned her intimidation and threats. The whistle of a locomotive at the front of an old coal train, quiet winding roads, and hardly a highway to be found - that’s still the image that many have of West Virginia today. But beneath the forest-covered mountains lies a labyrinth of tunnels just one meter high, in which miners still spend their entire working days toiling in the dark on their hands and knees. The camera team accompanies a traditional coal mining family as they go about their day. Together with the family’s two sons, Scott and Steven Lockhart, the crew ventures into the mine. Conversations with the miners reveal why people who had been lifelong Democratic Party supporters are suddenly placing their hopes for the future in Donald Trump. But the documentary also ventures beyond the coal mines to uncover the lesser-known sides of this Appalachian state - from snake-handling Pentecostal churches to the bluegrass and mountain ballads of Alan Cathead Johnston. We also speak with Sheriff Martin West, who sued the country’s three biggest pharmaceutical makers for their role in the opioid epidemic that has swept the region. And we meet another person who has decided to fight back: Maria Gunnoe, a young Cherokee activist who has dared to take on the coal barons that are ravaging the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

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

Filmed by Keystone in 1911 for the LNWR ( London & North Western Railway ) who had their own full time film unit. The film was produced to feature both a typical Lancashire colliery served by the LNWR and also the women surface workers or Pit Brow Lasses who had been in the news after moves to legislate against their empoyment on the surface at collieries. More women surface workers were employed at Lancashire collieries than in any other coalfield. The colliery featured was Alexandra Colliery of Wigan Coal & Iron Co Ltd. Shafts were sunk at the colliery from 1856 in an ancient mining district, records going back to the 14th century. The shaft eventually reached 772 yards and the Arley seam. The famous Haigh Cannel seam was also accessed. The colliery closed in June 1955.

Hunting History: UNDERGROUND RIVER FOUND AT UKS BIGGEST COAL MINE!
 
18:15
We went out recently over Daw Mill Colliery one of the UKs largest coal producers before its closure to see whats now become of this once thriving site. we had a good explore above ground and then started below were we came across a pretty fast flowing underground river! Daw mill colliery history: Daw Mill was the largest mine and biggest producer of coal in its region, located just outside of a town called Nuneaton. It first opened in 1956 with the first shaft being sunk between 1956-1959 and the second sunk between 1969-1971. The mine was a natural extension of former collieries Kingsbury and dexter all of which mined in the five metre Warwickshire coal field known as the Warwickshire thick. After the denationalisation of the coal industry Daw Mill was brought by UKCoal and by 2008 nearly 700 people worked at the mine, it was also this year that Daw Mill produced over 3.25million tons of coal beating a 13 year old record for annual output. However as early as 2009 talks about Daw Mill future had begun with coal prices dropping each year and railway threats to business. In 2009 Daw Mill was rated the most technologically advanced and most productive mine in Europe. The colliery was situated on the Birmingham to nuneaton line just east of the former Shustoke railway station. In 1983 an inclined tunnel linking underground workings with the surface was completed. This drift mining enabled Daw Mill to increase its production capacity as it removed the often time-consuming process of winding coal up the shafts. On record 3 men have been killed at Daw Mill in mining accidents in 2006 and 2007. In 2011 UKCoal was fined 1.2million pounds for safety breaches. On 22nd February 2013 a major fire broke out in the mine 500 metres underground and was described as the worst underground blaze in Britain for 30 years, no one was injured however with the fire unable to be put out for months the damage left behind compared with profits each year was not justified and the mine never re-opened after the fire. Daw Mill was the last remaining colliery in the West Midlands, once operating 20 collieries. Most the the Daw Mill site has now been demolished and the remaining buildings in recent years have really taken a beating from vandals (even last year the remaining buildings were in pretty good shape) unfortunately id never taken my camera before so thought I would this time to film what remains. most of the shoots with the convyer belts are now filled completely with water and only one still has room to get down into, the house remains, power room, a couple of odd sheds and warehouses, and of course all the underground fun. This video will be in 2 parts so keep an eye out for the second part coming soon! if you could drop the page a subscribe and like the video that’ll be much appreciated cheers all!

For the public’s safety, the Ohio Abandoned Mine Land Program is overseeing the removal of the dangerous mine structures and features of what is known as “Ohio’s Hidden Mine". This video creation is a first of its kind mitigation effort collaborated between the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office and the federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement.

The Coal Town System
 
02:38
West Virginia coal operators built small, company-owned towns for their miners to live in. The coal towns were almost always unincorporated; there were no elected officials, no independent police forces. Owners hired private detective agencies to watch over their workforce. Company towns were also untethered from the free market competition owners usually championed. "The Mine Wars" premieres January 26, 2016 on American Experience PBS.

Appalachia coal mining history fascinating: early days, dangerous tunnel in the ground. Latter day with heavy machinery, whole mountains are leveled to get to the coal. True, it's very hard on the landscape, but a lot easier on the miners.
