About: Mining Coal From the Deepest Arctic Pit
4,500 tonnes a day ,we broke the European record at kellingley uk in 1988 88,000 tonnes in one week
6 hour shifts! Wouldn’t that be nice
And a german Shearer ;-)
Only In Russia, Breath test before work. NO vodka here.
I have always wondered. If coal is the product of dead biological life (both plant and animal) that died millions year ago. How did this dead plant and animals get 1969 feet below the surface of ground level. I could accept that such dead plant and animal life got covered by 50 feet of rock and dirt. But, got covered by almost 2000 feet??? How did it get there and where did all that rock and dirt come from. Please, someone give me a clear answer. I am not a troll or trouble maker. I just wish to hear what others have to say on this.
Obviously the person talking knows absolutely nothing about morning
The proper term is long wall miner
