Coal Mining Webinar

Coal mining is the most well-known form of mineral extraction in the UK. Part of the reason for its fame is through an unwanted legacy in the form of subsidence, collapses and water contamination. Such was the extent of coal mining-related damages that a standalone government body was formed in to handle all coal mining operations, hazards and repairs (The Coal Authority following the 1994 Coal Industry Act). However, despite this safety net enabled to protect those involved in property transactions, coal mining-related hazards are continuously overlooked due to reliance on “data queries” rather than interpretation of data.
