Knockshinnoch Colliery Disaster 1950
Nearly 60 years ago one of the worst mining accidents in the history of British coal mining occurred in the Ayrshire village of New Cumnock. For several tense days in September 1950 the worlds media descended on the small Ayrshire mining village. The world paused with baited breath as rescuers battled bravely against all odds to reach the 129 men trapped deep underground when a field above where they were working caved-in, flooding the mine workings with thick liquid peat, cutting off all means of escape. This is a truly remarkable story of how ordinary men worked tirelessly in a race against time and the forces of nature to achieve one of the most dramatic and remarkable rescues ever attempted.

Coal Mining the Modern Way: Newcastle, 1957
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

Buried Alive - Chile Mine Rescue
Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... On 5th August 2010, all 33 of the day shift miners at the San Jose mine in Chile were missing and feared killed when their copper and gold mine collapsed. For 17 days no one knew whether they were alive or dead. Miraculously, after all hope was lost, on the 17th day the specialist drilling rigs looking for signs of life smashed through into the tunnel where the men had been clinging on. All 33 of the men were alive and well. Buried Alive: The Chilean Mine Rescue was given unprecedented access to the drilling rigs, engineers and medics for the definitive story of how this audacious rescue was carried out. The film follows the extraordinary story of the 33 miners, trapped underground for 70 days. Above ground, the film makers had unique access to document the highs and lows of the drilling teams as they pounded their way through almost half a mile of granite. Below ground the programme follows how the miners survived for so long and hears first hand from the doctors and psychologists who were keeping them alive and sane, giving extraordinary insight into the underground hell they had to endure. The rescue of all 33 Chilean miners has been an extraordinary feat of ingenuity and daring. This factual documentary explains in detail the challenges they faced and the technology they used to overcome all odds. Buried Alive: The Chilean Mine Rescue gains unique access to the key players involved to tell the story of the tireless, tough and emotional effort that went on at the San Jose Mine, away from the glare of the news cameras

Turkey coal mining accident traps at least 18 workers
At least 18 workers are trapped underground after an accident at a coal mine in southern Turkey, officials say. Initial reports said the mine in Ermenek, Karaman province, collapsed after a flood. The miners are stuck 300 metres (980ft) underground, officials said. More than 20 workers have been rescued, Karaman Governor Murat Koca said. Turkey suffered its worst ever mining disaster earlier this year, when a fire killed 301 at a mine in Soma. A mine official told Turkish media the trapped workers' chances of survival were slim unless they had managed to reach a safety gallery. Sahin Uyar also said the rescuers had yet to make contact with the miners. Turkey's emergency management agency, AFAD, said a broken pipe in the mine caused the flooding. The Energy Minister Taner Yildiz and Transport Minister Lutfi Elvan have headed to the mine to oversee the operation. The deaths at Soma in May raised questions about safety standards in Turkish mines, with hundreds of miners killed since 2000. Anti-government protests also followed the disaster, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, then prime minister, under fire for what demonstrators saw as an insensitive response to the deaths.

Let's Blast!
NOTE: Although this video shows an up-close look at the blasting process, NEVER go near an active surface mine or blast site without Federal training and permission. FYI, the white bags are Emulsified Ammonium Nitrate. The read cap is TNT and the silver rod that is connected to it by the yellow wire is the blasting cap, it's what ignites the shot. The white pebbles that are emptied into the blast holes by the powder trucks are the main explosive- "ANFO" or Ammonium Nitrate, which is a mixture of fertilizer and diesel fuel. Once the holes are filled with explosives, rock fines or "stemming" is pushed back in the holes and packed down to keep the explosives under pressure. After all the holes are loaded and rigged up, it's time for the fireworks! And remember kids, don't try this at home! Want to see more Blasting?

The Gresford Disaster - Sept 22nd 1934
Info about the video, images and music - please see lengthy note below. Update Feb 2012: There is an excellent BBC Radio4 programme about "Gresford - The Miners' Hymn" in the Souls Music series: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01blj2b ***************** I made this slide show because, when I searched for the song "The Gresford Disaster", I was amazed how little information there seemed to be on the internet about the disaster itself. The audio (original is about 17 minutes - very haunting and does not include the "Gresford - The Miners' Hymn") plus many of the photos are from the Welsh National Grid for Learning site: http://www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk/vtc/ngfl/2007-08/drama/irf25_gresford/ The music in the soundtrack was composed by Robert (Bob) Fox, Drama Teacher, then in Flintshire, North Wales. http://www.codeindigo.co.uk/robertfox/ Most of the other photos are from pages on the Wrexham website: http://www.wrexham.gov.uk/english/heritage/gresford_disaster/real_price_of_coal.htm I think that there might also be a couple of images from this website: http://www.welshcoalmines.co.uk There is also a short BBC news story from a couple of years ago about "Mine disaster documents found - Historic documents uncovered by chance record the inquiry into the 1934 Gresford mining disaster" including an interview with possibly the last remaining survivor of the disaster: http://news.bbc.co.uk/player/nol/newsid_7120000/newsid_7122000/7122037.stm?bw=bb&mp=wm&news=1&bbcws=1 I have never liked the song, "The Gresford Disaster". It is a bit too close too home and rather mixed up in my mind with Aberfan, which happened when I was at school in North Wales, and both events were rather terrifying as a child. That said, I have very happy memories of being a bell-ringer at Gresford church in my teens. I hope this video is moving and informative and just a little bit terrifying, as it should be. There are some other videos about The Gresford Disaster on YouTube already, some with the song as the soundtrack and with photos not included here.

knox mine disaster location and footage
Please like & subscribe to JP Videos This video shows the location of the knox mine disaster and shows how it looks today as well as footage from 1959. enjoy Don't forget to like my page https://www.facebook.com/JPVideos81 At approximately 11:20 a.m., two laborers in the Pittston vein heard a sharp “popping” sound. They quickly called upon John Williams, the assistant foreman. The three employees hurried to escape and notify superintendent Robert Groves, who immediately ordered an evacuation, although he withheld the severity of the situation. Unfortunately, the other three men who were stationed in this vein could not escape in time and the fierce waters of the Susquehanna took their lives. While millions of gallons of water flooded into the mine, thirty-three men managed to catch the last elevators at the May shaft, but forty-five others remained trapped, desperately seeking their own outlet. During the first sixty four hours of the emergency, an estimated 2.7 million gallons of water per minute streamed underground from an enormous whirlpool near the riverbank. Down below, thirty-two men wandered in two separate groups until they managed to escape through the abandoned Eagle air shaft. Pennsylvania Coal Company surveyor, Joe Stella, led the first group of seven. He not only knew the mines well, but also possessed maps which allowed his group to find a direct course to the opening. The second group, led by Myron Thomas, consisted of twenty-five men who wandered for hours before they found their way to safety. Unfortunately, twelve of the original remaining bodies have never been recovered. Thousands of bails of hay and hundreds of railroad ties were also added. Culm, dirt, and rock along with over 50 coal and railroad cars barely stopped the river. Finally they diverted the river around Wintermoot Island by building dams at both ends of the island. Once they pumped the water out between the dams the size of the hole was evident. Tons of clay and rock were poured into the hole and a concrete cap was placed on top of the opening. They then pumped much of the water out of the mine to look for the 12 missing miners. How could this tragedy have happened? The original plan was to keep 50 feet of rock and coal between the workings and the river bottom. The Knox company wanted this to be lowered to 35 feet. Mine inspectors deemed this ok as it would be sufficient to stand up to the river. At this point the seam of coal sloped up towards the river in what is known as an anticline. Company owners kept pushing the miners closer and closer to the river bottom until the rock could no longer support the river. At the point where the river broke through the rock was only 5 to 6 feet thick! This disaster ended deep mining in the Wyoming valley as almost all of the coal company’s mines connected.

The 33 - Official Trailer [HD]
The 33 - in theaters November 13th. http://the33movie.com https://www.facebook.com/the33movie --- From Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures comes the unforgettable true story of “The 33.” In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up. Based on the gripping true story of survival—and filmed with the cooperation of the miners, their families and their rescuers—“The 33” reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded, above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon. The international cast is led by Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient”), James Brolin, and Lou Diamond Phillips, with Bob Gunton and Gabriel Byrne. The main cast also includes Mario Casas, Jacob Vargas, Juan Pablo Raba, Oscar Nuñez, Tenoch Huerta, Marco Treviño, Adriana Barraza, Kate Del Castillo, Cote de Pablo, Elizabeth De Razzo, Naomi Scott, Gustavo Angarita, and Alejandro Goic. Patricia Riggen directed “The 33” from a screenplay by Mikko Alanne, Oscar nominee Craig Borten (“Dallas Buyers Club”) and Michael Thomas, based on the screen story by Jose Rivera and the book Deep Down Dark by Hector Tobar. The film was produced by Oscar nominee Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan”), Robert Katz and Edward McGurn. Carlos Eugenio Lavin, Leopoldo Enriquez, Alan Zhang and José Luis Escolar served as executive producers. The behind-the-scene creative team included cinematographer Checco Varese, production designer Marco Niro, editor Michael Tronick and Oscar-nominated costume designer Paco Delgado (“Les Misérables”). The Academy Award-winning team of Alex Henning and Ben Grossman (“Hugo”) supervised the visual effects. The score was composed by Oscar winner James Horner (“Titanic”). “The 33” was filmed on location in Chile’s harshly remote yet stunningly beautiful Atacama desert just kilometers away from where the event took place, and deep within two mines located in central Colombia. A presentation of Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures, “The 33” is slated to open on November 13, 2015 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

How is coal mined? - What is Surface Mining and Underground Mining - Video
How is coal mined? Read Full Story: http://www.spoonfeeding.in/2013/02/how-is-coal-mined-what-is-surface.html Mining is the process of removing coal from the ground. There are two types of mining: underground mining and surface mining. When the coal seam is fewer than 125 feet under the surface, it is mined by surface mining. Coal that is deeper than 125 feet is removed from the ground by underground mining. Underground mining is used when the coal seam lies deep in the earth. In an underground mine only some of the coal is removed. The coal that remains helps support the mine roof. Underground mines look like a system of tunnels. The tunnels are used for traveling throughout the mine, moving coal from place to place and allowing air to circulate in the mine. The coal that is mined is put on conveyor belts. The conveyor belts take the coal to the surface. There are three types of underground mines: slope, drift, and shaft. When the coal seam is close to the surface but too deep to use surface mining, a slope mine can be built. In a slope mine a tunnel slants down from the surface to the coal seam. A drift mine is built when the coal seam lies in the side of a hill or mountain. Drift mines may also be built in a surface mine that has become too deep. There are many drift mines in the eastern United States. The most common type of mine in Illinois is the shaft mine. These mines may be 125 to 1,000 feet deep. A large hole, or shaft, is drilled down into the ground until it reaches the coal seam.

Flame as an Early Fire Detector in Mines
This was clipped from the 1965 training film, Magic of Fire (23 minutes), produced by the US Bureau of Mines. By the early nineteenth century it had become known that firedamp became explosive when the flammable gas concentration was between approximately 5 and 15% by volume. On 25 May 1812 an explosion occurred at Felling Colliery, near Gateshead-on-Tyne, killing ninety-two men and boys. Reports of the circumstances behind this accident had such an impact on a London barrister published proposals for the formation of a society to consider ways of preventing such incidents. Called the Sunderland Society its first meeting was held on 1 October 1813. The main result of their deliberations was the invention by Sir Humphrey Davy, working under their auspices, of his now famous flame safety lamp. Despite the introduction of flame safety lamps into coal mines, explosions of firedamp remained a significant problem. Although no formal accident statistics were collected at the time, the number occurring seemingly continued along a rising trend that had been apparent before the Sunderland Society began its deliberations. Responding to this, in 1834 a petition was introduced before Parliament requesting that action be taken to do something about the situation. In response the House of Commons set up a Select Committee to study the occurrence of accidents in coal mines. Over the next four years it is probable that over three hundred coal miners died in explosions. Despite this, still no official action was taken in an attempt to prevent such from occurring. In June 1839 fifty-two men and boys were killed in an explosion at St Hilda Colliery, County Durham. A member of the local community was so moved that he suggested that a committee be formed to study the prevention of accidents in coal mines. The group was called the South Shields Committee. As a review of coal mining practices and safety, the report subsequently produced must be seen as a classic. Unlike any of the earlier reports into coal mine accidents, that of the South Shields Committee included a detailed discussion of how scientific instruments could be used to improve safety. The first Coal Mines Act was passed in 1850. This created a Mines Inspectorate with the power to enter any workings and advise the manager of any dangerous conditions found therein. It also required that all fatal accidents be reported to the Home Office within twenty-four hours of occurring. For the first time, this allowed an accurate assessment to be made of the causes of death amongst coal miners. This is taken from the 2007 paper, The Measurement of Air Flow in British Coal Mines: A Historical Review by I. D. Unwin, M. Phil, B.Sc., D.I.S., and available at: http://www.angelfire.com/mech/ians_coal_page/air_flow_2007.pdf

Tribute Coal Miners
(Photo's belong to their copyright owners, I do Not claim ownership). "I just wanted to honor those that gave their lives" so you could turn your PC on. This video is dedicated to underground Miner's around the world, even Gem miners. I think coal miners are the most forgotten people on this Earth...Until an accident occurs. One person asked how far down is Hell?... "It's just a 1/4 mile down" was the reply. One shot shows a coin "25" that is how they use to buy things at the (Company Store) most people today didn't know this. Tennessee Ernie Ford wrote a song, "I owe my soul to the company store" When you ran out of these coins you started a tab/chit. thus...you have the story. I want to thank 2 people for their inspiration, guidance, and help: ulead123 & superglide63 and a few of my friends for their support to post it. INFO ABOUT THE COIN: Imagine spending your days in the depths of the earth; doing the dirty, dangerous work of mining coal. Then consider what it would be like to be paid for your labor with money that could be considered virtually worthless. This was the plight of many miners during the early 20th Century; this is the story of scrip. As coal mining in the Appalachian region of the United States began to develop in the late 1800's, mines were established in remote, rugged areas, far away from banks and stores. Partially from a need to supply household goods to miners and partially to capitalize on an opportunity to make a profit, mine owners established company stores in their mining town. As actual U. S. currency was difficult for mines to keep on hand in sufficient quantities, the companies began to issue their own scrip tokens as payment for the miners' wages. Most scrip was unique in appearance so that a mine's company store could immediately identify its own scrip, as most did not want to accept tokens issued by another company. Miners were given scrip in advance of their wages to buy necessities for the home, but also to pay rent on the company-owned houses they lived in, to buy tools and supplies for work, to pay utilities and medical care, and even to contribute to a mandatory funeral fund. All this was paid to the coal company. There was little retail competition in the coalfields and the prices at some company stores were often so high that miners virtually had nothing left to collect when payday arrived. According to Stan Cohen, in his book, King Coal: "Payment by scrip served a dual purpose. The miner could get wages in advance of his regular paycheck, and he did not have borrow money or charge items at the store, The company in turn did not need to keep extensive charge account records, nor were there difficult collection problems involved." Scrip started out in paper form but by the early 1900's was commonly being created in brass, copper, and aluminum coins. To conserve metal during World War II, fiber scrip was occasionally produced. Each company had its own version and each mine's company store accepted only its own scrip. The government ultimately outlawed the use of scrip and it began to decline in use in the 1950's, disappearing entirelyby the early 1970's. A variety of other industries besides coal - such as lumber, textiles, agriculture, paper, copper, gold, and silver—issued scrip, creating thousands of varieties from more than 30 states.
