Description: Brown Spring Wood opencast site, 390 yd. W. 9 degrees N. from Keppil's Column. Looking NE. Opencast coal series. Excavating coal and loading on dumper. In some cases the coal is not removed to rail but is stacked near the site for future use. Here a power shovel is digging the Fenton Coal onto a dumper for removal from the cut. The clean surface of the unworked coal can be seen behind the machines.
