List of Largest Coal Production Countries

Largest Coal Production Countries:- Coal is a nonrenewable fossil fuel combusted and used to generate electricity. Coal Mining methods and combustion are challenging for miners and hazardous to the climate.

However, coal accounts for about half of the electricity generation in the United States. Coal mining is the method of pulling coal from the earth.

Coal is most valuable for its energy content and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity.

Steel and cement industries mostly use coal as a fuel for extracting iron from iron ore and for cement production.

In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery. A coal mine is a ‘pit,’ and ground structures are a ‘pit head.’

In Australia, “colliery” is commonly known as an underground coal mine.
