I come from a part of the world that has always been associated with coal mining and the industries fed by this trade. Black gold is often a term used to describe Oil. In these parts the coal during the hey day was just as valuable in relative terms. The seams are all but exhausted in most of the major mines and the communities bear the scars of the fight to survive.
