Coal formation and mining, artwork Featured 2 Jun 2005 Print

Coal formation and mining, artwork

Coal formation and mining. Artwork showing stages in the formation of coal and its eventual mining. Coal is a fossil fuel formed from dead plant material. In the Carboniferous era, between 345 and 280 million years ago, plants in swampy areas (left) died and sunk to the bottom of their swamp. Underwater, in the absence of oxygen, they did not decay but got compressed by the weight of more dead plants and sediment on top of them. Over millions of years, this formed peat (brown subsurface layer, second panel). Further sedimentation from seas (third panel) compressed the peat into coal (black layer). When near the surface, the coal can be extracted by open cast mining (right)

Coal mine, cutaway artwork Featured 2 Jun 2005 Print

Coal mine, cutaway artwork

Coal mine. Cutaway artwork of a coal mine, showing the seams of coal (black) and the tunnels bored into them. Coal is carved from the face and is lifted to the surface by a conveyor belt, which then deposits it in piles (upper right). Coal is a fossil fuel formed from the remains of plants. Over millions of years the remains were compacted to form a carbon rich mineral. The majority of the world's coal was formed in the Carboniferous era, between 345 and 280 million years ago. Coal is the world's major fuel source for energy production, but it is a finite resource. It is estimated that there is enough coal for around 300 years at current usage levels, but usage is likely to change with time
