Abstract:
The share of coal in mining energy resources and supply-demand balance of the world had formed over 70% at the beginning of the XX century. The coal serves the dominant source of the electric power reception on the world. The coal resources have explored in 75 countries on the world. The largest coal deposits are concentrated in the USA (445 billion tons), China (272 billion tons), Russia (200 billion tons), the SAR (130 billion tons), Germany (100 billion tons), Australia (90 billion tons), Great Britain (50 billion tons), Canada (50 billion tons), India (29 billion tons), and Poland (25 billion tons). Industrial, research and social-economic progress is normally connected with growing of the consumption of mineral resources, particularly coal that reveals itself on example of developed countries, even that of them, which is not enough provided their own resources. The most probable trends of development of the world coal industry could be the improvement of the mining and consumption of coal infrastructure, the increasing of safety level of coal mining and efficiency of its transportation.
