Our focus turns to North America, this month, with a regional report dedicated to Canada. Ann Marie Hann of the Coal Association of Coal and regular contributor Gordon Cope both look at the prospects for the Canadian coal industry in the light of global trends and developing technologies. The February issue of World Coal also includes the annual North American Manufacturers Review, which profiles the continent’s major OEMs. The lead feature of this issue is underground mining, with technical articles looking at continuous miners, roof bolters and underground communications systems, while Barry Baxter’s new monthly column looks at logistics for the coal chain in southern Africa.
