Mines relied on manual labor to cut the coal at the working face and the coal was hauled from the mine by horse and wagon. Later on, as documented in these pictures, many room-and-pillar mines use ...

A Brief History of Mining - Earth Systems

The earliest known mine for a specific mineral is coal from southern Africa, appearing worked 40,000 to 20,000 years ago. But, mining did not become a significant industry until more advanced civilizations developed 10,000 to 7,000 years ago. In early times, the only metals available were those found in a metallic state in nature.
