Inside The Underground Labyryth - Coal Mining Documentary - FIlms Coal mining is to acquire charcoal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy material, and, given that the 1880s, has been widely utilized to create electricity. Steel and also cement sectors make use of charcoal as a gas for extraction of iron from iron ore as well as for cement manufacturing. In the Usa, United Kingdom, as well as South Africa, a charcoal mine and its frameworks are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" usually describes an underground coal mine. Coal mining has actually had several growths over the current years, from the early days of males tunneling, excavating and manually extracting the coal on carts to huge open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires making use of draglines, vehicles, conveyors, jacks as well as shearers. Small scale mining of surface area deposits goes back hundreds of years. For example, in Roman Britain, the Romans were making use of all major coalfields (conserve those of North and also South Staffordshire) by the late Second century AD. [1] While much of its use stayed neighborhood, a dynamic field created along the North Sea shore providing charcoal to Yorkshire and also London. The Industrial Change, which started in Britain in the 18th century, as well as later spread to continental Europe and The united state and canada, was based upon the availability of coal to power vapor engines. International trade expanded exponentially when coal-fed steam engines were developed for the railways and also steamships. The new mines that grew up in the 19th century depended on guys and children to work lengthy hrs in often risky working problems. There were many coalfields, however the earliest remained in Newcastle as well as Durham, South Wales, the Central Belt of Scotland and also the Midlands, such as those at Coalbrookdale. The earliest constantly worked deep-mine in the United Kingdom is Tower Colliery in South Wales valleys in the heart of the South Wales coalfield. This colliery was created in 1805, and its miners bought it out at the end of the 20th century, to avoid it from being closed. Tower Colliery was lastly closed on 25 January 2008, although manufacturing continues at the Aberpergwm drift mine had by Walter Energy. Charcoal was extracted in The u.s.a in the early 18th century, as well as advertisement mining began around 1730 in Midlothian, Virginia. Coal-cutting devices were developeded in the 1880s. Before this creation, coal was mined from underground with a choice and also shovel. By 1912, surface mining was carried out with steam shovels made for coal mining.

The real Gold Rush... Gold mining in northern British Columbia Canada chasing down placer gold in the remote woods can be a hard task and spending the last 18 years chasing the dream of one day become a full-time gold miner has been a bit of work and a whole lot of adventure. Exploring for gold is a life changing event and doing the job right for a sucssesfull gold mine and the environment isn't easy but will pay in gold and one great experince to remember as well. After the 2016 placer gold sampling project I look forward to finally opening up this gold mine in 2017 as the ground in this gold claim has finally proved to me to be the best chance I have at a successful gold mining venture.....So I hope you enjoy this gold mining documentary of my gold mining adventures. Take care out there. Please Share Like and Subscribe. Shows like gold rush don't give gold mining a proper view into the life style of a gold miner. It's not just about getting rich or throwing money at it. It has more to do with a proper study of a area and taking the time to make sure a mine will will work before opening it up at all. Around 95% of mines fail due to gold fever and get rich thinking. The most succesful gold miners are the one who take the proper steps and don't let the greed do the talking and are more into the life style of being a gold miner and this is the intent of this on going gold mining documentary. So be patient and enjoy the hunt for gold and if your goal is to be a gold miner or opening up a gold mine the more you think and look the better your chances at a successful gold mine. Take care out there.

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

SEE MY HISTORY GROUP ON FACEBOOK : https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alan-Heaths-History-Page/173472422695696 The British mining industry had been in decline following WW1 but suddenly huge amounts of coal were needed to keep war industries moving. This is the story of the miners in world war two - many of whom were conscripts - forced to go down the mine when many would have preferred to have been fighting. My channel on you tube : http://www.youtube.com/alanheath is one of the most prolific from Poland, although unfortunately not the most visited. With almost one film per day, one may be forgiven for thinking I do nothing else but I do have a day job as well. I have produced almost 600 original films, most in English but also in Polish, French, Italian, Spanish and the occassional hint of German and Hebrew. My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects Please feel free to ask questions in the public area or to comment on things you disagree with. Sometimes there are mistakes because I speak without preparation. If I see the mistakes myself, I make this clear in the text. Please also leave a star rating! There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging -- http://www.ceepackaging.com - the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focussing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers. Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine! Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!
