Coal is a mining resource located within the world of Banished. It serves as an alternative to Fire Wood, and can be used as fuel within buildings by citizens, or by a Blacksmith to create steel tools.
 How to Obtain
As an upside to fire wood, coal reduces the amount of trees necessary and the amount of space taken up by forests. Coal functions in the same way as firewood within structures, but builds stronger tools (the steel tools) than any other material. Reliance on coal will ruin the land in the end, however, as removing mines kills any healthy land it was on top of.
