In England, the last coal mine was closed

19.08.2020 News

In the north of England, in the shire of Durham closed the last commercial coal mine Bradley Mine, which operated for almost 200 years.

It is noted that the open coal sump, which produced 150 thousand tons of coal per year, decided to close after failed plans to expand production areas. Environmentalists have fought against these plans – and won.

“This is bad news for miners who working here, especially as the fact that the UK still needs almost 8 million tons of coal a year. This demand is mainly met by imports from Russia and the United States, “the statement said.

There are still several small mines in Scotland and Wales. But the last of them should close in October 2022.

The coal industry in England for many years has been in decline. Miners’ strikes, mass layoffs and fierce protests over mine closures in the 1980s failed to save the mine.

The last deep mine in Kellinhli in North Yorkshire was closed five years ago. Ever since local coal was mined only from open pit mines such as Bradley Mine.
