Coal miners and conflict diamond miners had to deal with similar issues.
Both coal mining and diamond mining are dangerous jobs. The miners are always in a dangerous climate and have to be cautious. They had to use big machines and in coal mining, explosives. Sometimes, unexpected accident can occur. Also, mining for either diamonds or coal is hard. They have to look for diamonds that extremely small. **Interesting fact: the world's smallest diamond is 0.0003 carats. In coal mining, they have to find a lot because back then, during the industrial revolution, many people relied on and used coal. Trains needed them in order for their engines to run. Like diamond miners, coal miners get low wages. They barely get paid anything for the enormous amount of work that they do. Also, many kids are working on the diamond field. They are doing a lot of work that should be handled by professionals and adults. Same goes for blood diamonds. No one should be forced to mine diamonds in the blazing sun, especially not young, innocent children.
