As technology advanced, candles and lanterns came along, followed by battery powered head lamps and electric lighting. Today, LED cap lamps are the next evolution in mine illumination.

Historical mining illumination equipment is on display at the National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum, Leadville, Colo.
