Geology plays major role in coal mines .Planning -fr exploration and exploitation of coal deposits requires -geology of region.Coal deposits in the world are restricted geological formations such as Gondwana formations or Tertiary formation
U can refer books on geology -Coal Geology-Coal Exploration u will get additional in puts
2-Hand specimen we can identify coal or lignite on the basis of physical properties
u can refer books on coal geology,physical properties of coal

3 Coal hazard
Spontaneous combustion -coal deposits in mine will get fire due to facts involved in coal mine temperature pressure
Jhari Coal mine in India -still under the stage of coal fire -
Coal mine releases co2-carbon monoxide-etc-u can refer many books or web sites on coal hazardous
Coal mining requires lot of geological in puts -looking its strata -angle of inclination structural features etc
Kindly refer fuehrer web sites or book
