In brief: Breathing
This is usually a collection of coal dust and sometimes other mining dust chronically in the lungs.
It is endemic in miners. It will impair breathing somewhat (more over time) and can lead to chronic lung disease, susceptibility to lung infection and in some cases lung cancer. Not a good thing to have.
