Millions of years ago, a large number of plants and ferns grew on Earth.

These plants and ferns died in swamps, around riverbanks and got covered with soil and mud and slowly sank into the ground.

As the years passed, the Earth’s heat and the weight of the ground changed these dead plants into coal.

To extract coal, it needs to be dug out. Coal is usually found in layers, or seams underground.
