Self-Sustaining Coal Mines

Both methods require no electricity.

Method 1

Two burner mining drills can refuel each other when placed next to each other on a coal deposit as long as they're facing each other. Each drill fuels the other and coal gradually accumulates in their Storage/Stacks, so you have effectively a storage of 100 coal (2 stack, 50 coal, one in each burner miner, together 100). You can do this also for 4 or any other even number of miners.

Method 2

This method can be used for any number of burner mining drills in a coal deposit. Place a burner mining drill, then place at least three Transport belts from the output in a mirrored "L" like shape so that the third belt has a gap between it and the miner. Fill the gap with a Burner inserter in a way that the inserter can insert coal to the miner.
