Earth Sciences, mining, oil, etc. playlist:: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthracite Anthracite... is a hard, compact variety of mineral coal that has a high luster. It has the highest carbon content, the fewest impurities, and the highest calorific content of all types of coals, which also include bituminous coal and lignite. Anthracite is the most metamorphosed type of coal (but still represents low-grade metamorphism), in which the carbon content is between 92.1% and 98%... Anthracite ignites with difficulty and burns with a short, blue, and smokeless flame. Anthracite is categorized into standard grade, which is used mainly in power generation, and high grade (HG) and ultra high grade (UHG), the principal uses of which are in the metallurgy sector. Anthracite accounts for about 1% of global coal reserves, and is mined in only a few countries around the world. China accounts for the lion's share of production; other producers are Russia, Ukraine, North Korea, Vietnam, the UK, Australia and the US. Total production in 2010 was 670 million tons... Terminology Other terms which refer to anthracite are black coal, hard coal, stone coal (not to be confused with the German Steinkohle or Dutch steenkool which are broader terms meaning all varieties of coal of a stonelike hardness and appearance, like bituminous coal and often anthracite as well, as opposed to lignite, which is softer), blind coal (in Scotland), Kilkenny coal (in Ireland), crow coal (or craw coal from its shiny black appearance), and black diamond. "Blue Coal" is the term for a once-popular and trademarked brand... Anthracite is similar in appearance to the mineraloid jet and is sometimes used as a jet imitation. Anthracite differs from ordinary bituminous coal by its greater hardness, its higher relative density of 1.3--1.4, and lustre, which is often semi-metallic with a mildly brown reflection. It contains a high percentage of fixed carbon and a low percentage of volatile matter... The moisture content of fresh-mined anthracite generally is less than 15 percent. The heat content of anthracite ranges from 22 to 28 million Btu per short ton (26 to 33 MJ/kg) on a moist, mineral-matter-free basis... Anthracite may be considered to be a transition stage between ordinary bituminous and graphite, produced by the more or less complete elimination of the volatile constituents of the former... History of mining and use In southwest Wales, anthracite has been burned as a domestic fuel since at least medieval times. It was mined near Saundersfoot. In the United States, anthracite coal history began in 1790 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, with the discovery of coal made by the hunter Necho Allen in what is now known as the Coal Region... By 1795, an anthracite-fired iron furnace had been built on the Schuylkill River... In spring 1808, John and Abijah Smith shipped the first commercially mined load of anthracite down the Susquehanna River from Plymouth, Pennsylvania, marking the birth of commercial anthracite mining in the United States. From that first mine, production rose to an all-time high of over 100 million tons in 1917. From the late 19th century until the 1950s, anthracite was the most popular fuel for heating homes and other buildings in the northern United States... Many large public buildings, such as schools, were heated with anthracite-burning furnaces through the 1980s... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery... Coal mining has had a lot of developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyor, jacks and shearers...

knox mine disaster location and footage
 
05:32
Please like & subscribe to JP Videos This video shows the location of the knox mine disaster and shows how it looks today as well as footage from 1959. enjoy Don't forget to like my page https://www.facebook.com/JPVideos81 At approximately 11:20 a.m., two laborers in the Pittston vein heard a sharp “popping” sound. They quickly called upon John Williams, the assistant foreman. The three employees hurried to escape and notify superintendent Robert Groves, who immediately ordered an evacuation, although he withheld the severity of the situation. Unfortunately, the other three men who were stationed in this vein could not escape in time and the fierce waters of the Susquehanna took their lives. While millions of gallons of water flooded into the mine, thirty-three men managed to catch the last elevators at the May shaft, but forty-five others remained trapped, desperately seeking their own outlet. During the first sixty four hours of the emergency, an estimated 2.7 million gallons of water per minute streamed underground from an enormous whirlpool near the riverbank. Down below, thirty-two men wandered in two separate groups until they managed to escape through the abandoned Eagle air shaft. Pennsylvania Coal Company surveyor, Joe Stella, led the first group of seven. He not only knew the mines well, but also possessed maps which allowed his group to find a direct course to the opening. The second group, led by Myron Thomas, consisted of twenty-five men who wandered for hours before they found their way to safety. Unfortunately, twelve of the original remaining bodies have never been recovered. Thousands of bails of hay and hundreds of railroad ties were also added. Culm, dirt, and rock along with over 50 coal and railroad cars barely stopped the river. Finally they diverted the river around Wintermoot Island by building dams at both ends of the island. Once they pumped the water out between the dams the size of the hole was evident. Tons of clay and rock were poured into the hole and a concrete cap was placed on top of the opening. They then pumped much of the water out of the mine to look for the 12 missing miners. How could this tragedy have happened? The original plan was to keep 50 feet of rock and coal between the workings and the river bottom. The Knox company wanted this to be lowered to 35 feet. Mine inspectors deemed this ok as it would be sufficient to stand up to the river. At this point the seam of coal sloped up towards the river in what is known as an anticline. Company owners kept pushing the miners closer and closer to the river bottom until the rock could no longer support the river. At the point where the river broke through the rock was only 5 to 6 feet thick! This disaster ended deep mining in the Wyoming valley as almost all of the coal company’s mines connected.

Why This Town Has Been On Fire For 50 Years
 
03:51
This week Reactions is shining light on why a small town in PA, Centralia, has been on fire for over 50 years. It's because of science. Well, chemistry, technically. In 1962, an underground fire started in the coal-mining town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. Fifty-three years later, that fire still burns. In this week’s episode of Reactions, we explain the history and science behind the Centralia mine fire. Does anyone still live there? How could the fire keep burning for so long, and why hasn’t it been extinguished? From a chemical standpoint, what is fire, anyway?

Burning Ghost Town In Centralia, Pennsylvania
 
02:53
If you thought the horror movie Silent Hill was fiction, you should visit Centralia, Pennsylvania. This abandoned ghost town has had a fire burning underground for over 50 years! Due to constant spontaneous combustion and oxidation, this mysterious old coal mine is completely out of control! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most SHOCKING Biological Weapons Ever!" video here: https://youtu.be/W0Yli9y7YAk Watch our "Top 5 Most Mysterious and Powerful Secret Societies" video here: https://youtu.be/0Lu4Uvc5EhA Watch our "DEADLIEST Ship Disaster In History!" video here: https://youtu.be/8cNBVZMoalc Town literally burning for more than 50 years! There is a small town in Pennsylvania that has been burning since 1962. That’s over 50 years! What? How is that even possible? So the issue is that Centralia, Pennsylvania is on top of some of the biggest coal deposits in the world. In the 1800s miners blasted tunnels underground and then abandoned them about 100 years later. No one really knows what exactly caused the fire but the strongest theory is that some burning trash from a landfill accidentally lit the coal near an old entrance to the mine. Yeah this isn’t fog, it’s smoke. Since sometimes coal deposits are under a lot of pressure, it can even ignite without a flame. The oxygen from the empty tunnels created the perfect conditions for the fire to spread. The flames started going deeper and deeper into the surrounding area as more coal burned, and the tunnels continue to take oxygen down from the surface. It is now in a vicious, fiery cycle that is now about 300 feet deep. Coal burns slow and steady and can take ages to burn out. As long as there is enough heat, fuel, and oxygen to keep it going, there’s nothing you can do. They actually tried to put it out by drilling holes into the mine and pouring wet sand down to block off the air supply but it didn’t work. It might not seem like such a big deal since the fire is underground but it really is. The 1000 residents probably didn’t think that is was a big deal either until sulfurous fumes and carbon monoxide almost suffocated everyone in their home. The underground fire fractured the ground making sink holes all over the place. A 12-year-old almost fell in one in 1981. The roads are also affected and have smoke coming out of them! The last time they tried to put it out was in the 1980’s but since then everyone’s just given up. Today about 12 people live in Centralia and it’s a very popular destination for graffiti artists. Check out this artwork all over the road. It also draws UFO seekers... The fire covers 6 square miles and spreads 75 feet every year. While this might seem like a freak accident, these kind of fires are actually pretty common. There are mine fires burning in Wyoming, Australia, Germany, and many other parts of the world. India and China have the most serious problems with hundreds of abandoned mines all over the country. Coal mine fires can burn for centuries and it is estimated that the Central fire could burn for another 250 years!

Historic Brookside Alabama Coal Mine Site
 
07:05
A photo & video compilation taken during an exploration of the historic coal mines & coke ovens located at Brookside, Alabama. Coal mining in this area dates back to the early 1890's. Sloss Sheffield Steel & Iron Company took control of the mines around 1905 and proceeded to upgrade mining facilities with a at the time time period state of the art coal washing facility. Mining operations continued at Brookside for many years until everything was shut down for various reasons. Today the site is pretty overgrown and not easy to hike. It would be really nice to see this area turned into a park for its historic significance to the region in the foreseeable future.

Established in 1856 by the landower (and named after it grocer Mr. Moon), Moonville (Maximum population of about 100) was a mining town along the Marietta - Cincinnati Railroad (The first through-train from Cincinnati ran on April 9, 1857.) The coal mined in Moonville was used to supply the many furnaces in the area including the Hope Furnace. Moonville reached its peak in the 1870s, and totally disappeared by the 1930s with the exception of the Moonville Tunnel and the Moonville Cemetery. The railroad ceased operation sometime in 1988, and the tunnel has stood abandoned since. (More) http://www.ohioexploration.com/moonvilletunnel.htm It is estimated that by 1920 alone, 5 or 6 people lost their lives on the bridges or within the tunnel. The last fatality was in 1986, when a 10 year old girl was struck by a CSX locomotive on that trestle directly in front of the tunnel. Trains continued to run until the line was abandoned and the rails pulled up in 1988. 1970s train in the tunnel http://www.forgottenoh.com/Moonville/tunnel1.jpg After the tracks were removed http://www.forgottenoh.com/Moonville/tunnel2.jpg http://www.forgottenoh.com/Moonville/tunnel3.jpg Today http://www.forgottenoh.com/Moonville/tunnel4.jpg Moonville Tunnel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AikVxeHH5DQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqpS1Zwkjy4 (6:04 minutes) Wierd Ohio (January 2006) - http://www.amazon.com/dp/1402733828/ === Vinton County (414 sq. miles of land and one of water) continues as the least populated county in Ohio.

The Saint Nicholas Coal Breaker in Mahanoy City, PA
 
05:00
Once one of the largest coal breakers in the world, the historic Saint Nicholas Breaker is now in the process of being dismantled because it was deemed too expensive to restore this 20th century relic and turn it into a historic attraction. Built in 1931, the Saint Nicholas Breaker could produce up to 12,500 tons of coal a day and sounded like thunder when it was in full operation. After closing in 1965 after the decline in the coal market, it sat shuttered for over 50 years. In May of 2015, the dismantling process began. Although most of the structure has been removed, what remains is still a very impressive sight.

Massive Abandoned Coal Mine - Ore Carts Still Inside
 
26:50
After speaking with some locals, i decided to do a re-edit on my original video as to not ruin this location for others. So this is just the newer edited version. This is only the second mine i have ever explored and let me tell you, it didn't disappoint. After looking back at this video, i realize this was extremely dangerous and foolish not only due to the loose ceiling, but lack of equipment. So before entering another mine i will be equipped with proper safety equipment such as a multi gas meter and hard had for starters. This mine was very difficult to navigate due to the low ceilings but seeing the three ore carts inside made it worth it. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT to do this. The temp outside was 15° but inside was closer to 60°. There were numerous workings, equipment and endless tunnels. I went as far as i could within my comfort zone and may return to check out the rest once i am properly equipped to do so. Enjoy Please Note: Exploring Abandoned locations can be dangerous. I don't condone or encourage anyone to enter an Abandoned structure. Not only is safety a concern, but often times its illegal. I simply go to document its history before it's gone and leave things the way I find them. I assume all the risks & responsibility in doing so. Please don't attempt to do this on your own.

Exploring the Ghost Town of McIntyre, PA
 
20:39
We check out to the location of an abandoned coal mining town from the late 1800s. The coal company was created in 1870, being the first large scale mining operation in the area. The town grew up around the coal operation and housed a church, school, store, sawmill, shoe shop, and a town hall as well as 300 houses. Many of the buildings were torn apart for reuse and some are still used today as hunting cabins. The small coal town is now all but forgotten and only small bits of memories remain. We return to where it all started, in the mines, to reanimate the memories stored above and below the surface.

Urban Exploration: Centralia, PA Ghost Town Burning Underground
 
08:50
*UPDATE* The time capsule ended up being opened on October 4, 2014 which was much earlier than expected. Centralia, PA is a modern day ghost town with an ongoing underground inferno. Silent Hill was inspired by Centralia's plight. It was also a model for various movies that wanted to give a hell-like appearance in a ghost town. There used to be a WARNING - DANGER sign posted here from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania stating that walking or driving in this area could result in serious injury or death; that dangerous gases are present and the ground is prone to sudden collapse. Centralia was once a prosperous coal mining town with 1,100 population. It included 4 movie theatres, 7 bars, a school and a gas station. In the spring of 1962, a fire which started at the town dump during spring cleanup ignited the coal present at the ground level as this area is very rich in coal. As firefighters worked to try and extinguish that fire, it had already spread to the underground abandoned coal tunnels that are 100 meters in depth. After a couple of decades, attempts to put out the fire failed. State and federal authorities said they didn't have enough funding to do the job right. They tried digging up the coal around the burn site but it was burning faster than they could dig and there are too many tunnels too flood. Approximately 450 acres of underground coal has been on fire since. This type of coal is called anthracite which is difficult to ignite, but very difficult to extinguish. There are 3000 acres of coal field here underground, so with enough oxygen feeding this fire from other mining tunnels, the fire is expected to last at least another 100-200 years, maybe longer. The temperature of the active burn area below ground is 1100-1200 degrees Farhenheit. Tests by scientists and geologists were done here that showed the ground temperature to be around 440 degrees Celsius a foot into the ground. With the threats of hydrogen explosions, carbon monoxide and cave-ins, most residents were relocated in the 80s. The houses were then torn down leaving approximately 11 people behind who refused to evacuate despite the danger and risks involved such as dangerous gasses, explosions and sink holes. The ground beneath could collapse and has done so already. Looking down the now-empty streets, you can see that nature has reclaimed her land, albeit, a dangerous one. Buildings, cars and trees can fall into this pit at any time. The old Hwy 61 that used to bring traffic to Centralia has been destroyed by the underground fire. It is constantly subsiding with smoke usually billowing out from the pits and separations that will continue to get wider and deeper day-by-day. This is called subsidence. This is due to the coal seams the run below ground at steep angles which cause the road above ground to collapse as the coal burns. According to engineers, the only way to stop this fire is to dig the entire 3000 acres of coal field under this town and surrounding area. This would cost $600 million which is more than the US governments were willing to pay. Ironically, a small town just south of Centralia, Byrnesville (of all names) was also evacuated and now empty. Mostly coal miners resided here of an Irish-Catholic desent. Both Centralia and Byrnesville were a tight-knit community, and many did not want to leave. There is a time capsule that still lies buried in the ground in Centralia. This was set up as a memorial for the working class town to be opened in 2016 which would be Centralia's 150th Anniversary. Whether the residents return to open it on that date is yet to be seen. The Weather Channel selected portions of this video for their "Most Toxic Ghost Towns" video.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Throws Out Congressional Map
 
00:42
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that the state's congressional map is unconstitutional. According to the state's top court, they must be redrawn within weeks, and ultimately will be approved by the state's governor. The court gave the state's lawmakers until Feburary 9th to draw new lines, but if they are not approved by February 15th, the court will adopt a new map. The court added that the current congressional map clearly violates the state's constitution for Republican partisan advantage. The decision is expected to have implications for midterm congressional elections, as Democrats only hold 5 out of 18 districts in Pennsylvania. https://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/22/pennsylvania-congressional-map-court-ruling-357269 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Vote It using http://wochit.com

This video documents for future generations the important history of the Dessecker Mine Complex – a small scale surface and underground coal mine and tipple in Tuscarawas County, Ohio – and the impressive story of two ingenious and independent Dessecker brothers who built and operated the mine for decades. For the public’s safety, the Ohio Abandoned Mine Land Program is overseeing the removal of the dangerous mine structures and features of what is known as “Ohio’s Hidden Mine". This video creation is a first of its kind mitigation effort collaborated between the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Ohio State Historic Preservation Office and the federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement.

The Mines of Middlehope Burn (10th August 2017)
 
45:55
10th August 2017 I had been to hospital in the morning to see the physio about my knees and had the afternoon to kill, so decided to go for a walk. My initial idea was to head to nearby Whitley Chapel and do some more of my lead road series by following the Long Drag up onto the moors and then cut across at Hangman's Hill then back down the old drover road called Broadway. Only I discovered while plotting my route that the Long Drag wasn't a right of way. This struck me as being strange so I dug out the old maps only to discover that it didn't exist at the time of the lead mines and was thus unlikely to be a drover's road for lead. However, it was present on the 1891 map and when I followed it on the map it led to a series of coal mines. It still looks an interesting road to follow but being so close to the 'glorious 12th' and having to pass the gamekeeper's house on route, I thought it would be a waste of time trying to trespass on the route so knocked it on the head... and I'm glad I did. Instead I headed into Weardale to a place called West Gate. Earlier in the school summer holidays I had took my daughter looking for crystals (video to follow soon) at Middlehope fluorite mine and I was aware of the history of fluorite that was mined further down the Middlehope burn. So I wanted to visit the mine complex on the burn to have a look. The site has protected historical monument status which added further interest in the area. What I was not expecting were the large number of impressive waterfalls on the burn. Coupled with the spectacular scenery and the historical interest of the site, it made for one of the best walks I have done in the last year. It might be a short 4 mile walk but it packs an almighty punch. CORRECTIONS on what I say on the video... the first mine I come to is called Low Slitt Mine. The second mine is called Middlehope Shield Mine. The dam is called West Slitt Dam and the mine workings above it is West Slitt Mine. The fluorite that they found was not yellow fluorite but green fluorite. Further details about the site can be found at: https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1015825 My route: https://gb.mapometer.com/walking/route_4593344.html The route I had intended had the shepherds not been shearing sheep: https://gb.mapometer.com/walking/route_4595059.html ----- Thank you for watching Please comment, like and subscribe.

Appalachia coal mining history
 
05:50
Appalachia coal mining history fascinating: early days, dangerous tunnel in the ground. Latter day with heavy machinery, whole mountains are leveled to get to the coal. True, it's very hard on the landscape, but a lot easier on the miners.
