MINING COAL UNDER THE SEA IN NOVA SCOTIA WITH NOTES ON COMPARABLE UNDERSEA COAL-MINING OPERATIONS ELSEWHERE

Extensive undersea coal-mining has developed on both the east and west coasts of Canada, and at this time some four million tons, or 25 per cent of the total output of Canadian coal, representing a pit-mouth value of $14,000,000 per annum, is coming from coal seams lying under the sea. Of the coal now being mined in Nova Scotia, 55 per cent comes from under the sea, and this proportion is likely to increase.
