Is Coal mining the most dangerous type of mining?

    Coal mining is considered the most dangerous type of mining due to its unpredictability. Mining in general is considered the most dangerous industry in America. Due to modern mining practices, many of the dangers have been suppressed but they are still perilous to many developing countries. China has the highest number of coal mining related deaths in the world with 6027 in 2004. The United States had only 28 that same year. Vehicle collisions, wall failures, gas poisoning and gas explosions are some of the worst hazards encountered by coal miners.
