Dear Sonya,
A good starting point for your research would be the Royal Commission on Mining Royalties in the early 1890s - Parliamentary Papers. Very little has been written on the relationship between mineral owners, miners and other land users. more is available in the literature of American mining history.

If you would like to discuss the subject, please telephone me on the number below.

Do you know Mel Davis at the University of Western Australia - he runs the Australian Mining History Association and can put you in touch with mining historians globally who can advise on aspects of the subject.

Subject: In search of Australia's coal heritage in Britain

Hi,

I am PhD student from the Australian National University, and I am interested in
coal. I am about to spend 5 weeks in the UK, based at Cambridge, to follow up

on some of the connections between coal in Australia and Britain. In
particular, I am keen to gain some understanding about conflicts between
coal interests and other land-owners/users in Britain through time. More
generally I
am interested in what Australia inherited from Britain in terms of
perspectives on coal, the coal industry and mining rights etc. If anyone knows
of books, people or other resources that might be of assistance, I would be
grateful to hear about it.

The starting point for my research are the many and growing conflicts and
controversies around coal in Australia today (including land-use conflict,
environmental impacts, industry power etc). My aim is to begin to put these
current concerns in a longer and broader

context, with the hope that a fuller understanding might lead to more effective
decisions and actions.

Thanks for your time,

Sonya Duus
