Today's coal miners must posses the skills and have the necessary training to operate the sophisticated equipment that is used to extract the coal from the earth. With technology constantly changing, future miners will need to possess an advanced education. Computers are an integral part of the coal mining operation helping to operate the safety monitoring systems and the machinery used by the modern miner.

Technology has enabled the production of coal to increase by as much as 83 percent from 1970 to 2004. Fifty years ago there were 7,200 mines with 335,000 workers compared to 2,000 mines and 104,824 miners today. Coal mining is essential to our modern-day society. Industry and government have joined forces over the last 20 years to find cleaner ways to harness the energy in coal more efficiently.

Choose our Coal Miner Ornament as a unique, affordable gift for your favorite coal miner.
