British Opencast Coal is an illustrated history of coal mining by surface methods from 1942 to 1985. The book details the origins of the industry and documents the types of earthmoving machines employed during the first 40 years. The book highlights the importance of surface coal mining operations and site restoration, and their necessity for the British economy. Meticulously researched, the facts, figures, and data covered are taken from the author's extensive collection of magazine articles, newspaper cuttings, and manufacturers' machine brochures/specifications.
