The present study was conducted to determine the fungal diversity of soil in coal mine of Charhi (Hazaribagh). Soil samples were collected from five different sites depending upon their richness of coal particles and they were assigned a notion as 1 to 5. Topography, vegetation, mining type, mining area, status of mining operation, biological reclamation activity was considered as the basis of the sample selection. Soil physicochemical characteristics were also analyzed. For microbiological study, soil samples were processed according to standard microbiological techniques. The result showed that the strains found in the soil samples of coal mine were common air borne species, which can grow on these harsh environments and this is done by growing them on agar media supplemented with different concentrations of coal powder and temperature.
