Coal Mines of NSW index book/FitzGerald Film Collection of Australian Mining Industry Historical DVDs

In 2011, Coal Services launched the Coal Mines of NSW index book and FitzGerald Film Collection of Australian Mining Industry Historical DVDs. Both the book and the DVDs were commissioned by Coal Services and bring significant benefits to the Australian mining industry, researchers, historians, film makers and the general community.

The Coal Mines of NSW index book is a single-source reference of the coal mines that have operated in NSW. This book was prepared and researched by Brian John Andrews, O.A.M, of the Coalfield Heritage Group.

The FitzGerald Film Collection of Australian Mining Industry Historical DVDs consists of fifteen films which were produced between 1968 and 1988. Coal Services have restored and preserved these as a set of historical DVDs.
