Accumulated, compacted and altered plants form a sedimentary rock called coal. It is not only a resource of great economic importance, but a rock of intense fascination to the student of earth history.
Coal - Western Oregon University
Coal . Coal has a long history of use as an energy source. It was the fuel of the industrial revolution and although many other energy sources have replaced some of the applications in which coal was used, it still is an important fuel for electrical generation.
Iron and Steel Production in Birmingham | Encyclopedia of Alabama
Woodward Iron Company Four iron-making enterprises, each controlling substantial deposits of iron ore, coal, limestone and dolomite, came to dominate the industry. These companies were unique in their use of advanced blast-furnace plants that smelted iron ore into pig iron.

Limestone – Its Processing and Application in Iron and Steel ...
Several different types of kilns are used for the calcination process. These kilns can be rotary kilns or shaft kilns. The type of the kiln to be selected strongly depend on the characteristics of the limestone, anticipated production rate, cost of fuel, investment costs, available fuel, local conditions, infrastructure and other things.
How Coal Works | Union of Concerned Scientists
Strip mining is used when coal seams are located close to the surface. It relies on very large machinery and requires many fewer workers per unit of coal. First, vegetation and soil are removed from the immediate surface.
