This is an excellent introduction to the technology used in coal mining in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais rea of France. This area was one of Europe's major coal mining areas and has recently been added to the World Heritage List. The book discusses the process of mining and the technology used in a logical manner starting at exploration and geology and ending up with the transport of coal away from the mines. Each section has a brief discussion and is well illustrated (in colour). It therefore serves as a good introduction to the topic.
