Modern American Coal Mining: Methods and Applications, edited by Christopher J. Bise, was Published in 2013. It is an update to SME’s Coal Mining Technology: Theory and Practice by Robert Stefanko, with whom Bise worked while pursuing his masters and doctoral degrees at Penn State University. Bise completed that edition in 1983 after Stefanko fell ill. Now, 30 years later he presents the updated version.

As one of the nation’s foremost authorities on coal mining, we have asked Professor Bise to join us for this podcast to speak about the challenges facing the American coal industry.
