mines worked under the Coal Mines Regulation Act includes coal, ironstone, oil shale
and fireclay mines, whilst the definition of mines worked under the Metalliferous
Mines Regulation Act includes metalliferous ores, stones and other minerals.
Web Editor's note:
There is a considerable body of information here that is being slowly transferred to
the new website format - so these pages are "under construction", please be patient!
