With over 6185 million tonnes of coal currently produced worldwide, it’s safe to say that coal mining jobs are increasing across Africa.
The largest coal producing countries are not confined to one region – the top five hard coal producers are China, the USA, India, Australia and South Africa. Much of global coal production is used in the country in which it was produced; only around 15% of hard coal production is destined for the international coal market.
Coal is a fossil fuel which is the largest source of energy for the generation of electricity globally, as well as one of the largest worldwide anthropogenic sources of carbon dioxide emissions. Coal originates from the massive build-up of dead land-based plant life, primarily trees. It is a readily combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock usually occurring in rock strata in layers or veins termed coal beds.
