Although surface mining is only feasible when the coal seams are near the surface, the technique accounts for 67 percent of coal production in the United States (U.S. Department of Energy, ). Reserves are widely distributed throughout the globe, although the United States, Russia, China, and India account for more than half of the world’s recoverable coal reserves. Coal is mined either through underground or surface mining. Underground mining requires digging a shaft to where the coal . Coal Employment Project.

Surface mining and underground mining are the two major schools of coal mining. To qualify for surface mining, the coal deposits must be within meters of the surface.

Coal mining, particularly in the case of open-cut mines, requires that large areas of land are temporarily disturbed, and perhaps withdrawn from other productive uses such as agriculture, while the process of coal extraction is under land may, however, be returned to productive use after mining or even while mining in other parts of the area is still in progress (Figure ).

The term strip mining is most often used in reference to coal mining, although the process may also be used to extract certain metallic ores as well. Sometimes the terms open-pit, open-cast, or surface mining are used in the same sense, although they usually refer to metalliferous mining or the mining.
