By mining it.
Coal is mined by two methods: surface or 'opencast' mining or underground or 'deep' mining. The choice of mining method largely depends on the geology of thecoal deposit. Un…derground mining currently accounts for a biggershare of world coal production than opencast; although in severalimportant coal producing countries surface mining is morecommon.
they might of died they could get trapped. very little air for them to breathe. also they could break their back because it was cramped and the coal was very heavy too!
A coal mine is a tunnel underground where coal is wheeled through the tunnel. Victorian children worked many hours in there with no fresh air and had to get down there by rope…. Wow tough times! Coal can also be mined by the open cut, or open cast, method. There are also other methods of mining coal; the link below gives excellent information on the subject.
Subsidence of land at the surface, and damage to dwellings. Lung diseases caused by conditions underground. Air and water pollution from the coal-tips.
coal mines ____________________ under ground , way back in the mountains , in a big dark whole , places like that . basicly 6" from hell ! *
You mine coal for either money making. Or to make most bars including Steel mith addy and rune.
they mined rocks for coal.
in the ground :)
The pile up of waste materials may become unstable, and the waste materials that accumulate must be disposed of somewhere.
Coal mining can cause massive environmental destruction via unrestricted strip mining, and it can destroy nearby rivers via acid mine drainage. It can harm the health of worke…rs and people living nearby, as well.
Mining coal from tropical swamps might be a problem for geologists because they would be disrupting or damaging the environment and the ecosystems around the mine.
The use of coal creates pollution in the air and the problem with mining is it can cave and its depleting the natural resources of coal but also damaging the ecosystem under…neath Hopes This helps XD
when coal is mined from earths surface,people remove the layers of soil above the coal

In a great number of places; coal is VERY common. England, central Europe, many places in the United States especially in the Appalachian Mountains through Illinois, much o…f central Asia. Canada, especially Nova Scotia (running through my mind all the old folk songs about coal mines and mine disasters.....)
