Ricky Skaggs - Coal Mining Man {HD}
Ricky Lee Skaggs was born in Cordell, Kentucky. He started playing music at age 5 after he was given a mandolin by his father, Hobert. At age 6, he played mandolin and sang on stage with Bill Monroe. At age 7, he appeared on television's Martha White country music variety show, playing with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. He also wanted to audition for the Grand Ole Opry at that time, but was told he was too young. In his mid-teens, Skaggs met a fellow teen guitarist, Keith Whitley, and the two started playing together with Whitley's banjoist brother Dwight on radio shows. By 1970, they had earned a spot opening for Ralph Stanley and Skaggs and Keith Whitley were thereafter invited to join Stanley's band, the Clinch Mountain Boys Skaggs later joined The Country Gentlemen in Washington, DC, J. D. Crowe's New South. For a few years, Skaggs was a member of Emmylou Harris's Hot Band. He wrote the arrangements for Harris's 1980 bluegrass-roots album, Roses in the Snow. In addition to arranging for Harris, Skaggs sang harmony and played mandolin and fiddle in the Hot Band.

Tribute to Miners (Big John by Jimmy Dean 1961)
No copyright infringement intended. The mining video is public domain (www.archive.org) and the song belongs to a record label (Columbia records). Thanks to all miners for your work. It's very dangerous and should be appreciated. The coal mining film is from the early 1970's and is more like mining was during the time the song was released.

Remember Wilberg
"Remember Wilberg" is a documentary produced by UTA's Department of Art and Art History about a December 1984 fire at the Wilberg Mine in Emery County, Utah. The fire killed 27 coal miners. The documentary took more than two years to produce. While it honors the victims of the disaster, it will also be used as a safety training tool for coal miners. A $1.3 million federal grant that was awarded to UTA's Division of Enterprise Development funded the project.

Kentucky Coal Miners Tribute HD
Around April 13, 1750 Dr. Thomas Walker was the first recorded person to discover and use coal in Kentucky. In 1820 the first commercial mine, known as the "McLean drift bank" opened in Kentucky, near the Green River and Paradise in Muhlenberg County; and we have been mining coal ever since. Coal has been used in Kentucky for over 250 years and probably longer if you count the native American Indians. The Kentucky Coal Heritage section is just a small part of the Kentucky Coal Education site, here you will find information related to and about Kentucky Coal through pictures, articles, and other various sources as we dig up the past.

Peabody Coal Company - Sinclair Surface Mine
10 minutes of video from a video made by one of the miners at the mine that is over 1 hour long. John Prine sang about this mine in the song "Paradise" and the shovel that worked there. At the time, it was the World's Largest Shovel, but was only that for a couple of years after it's construction. This mine served as a mine mouth for the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) Paradise Fossil Plant next door. It was all located outside Central City, Kentucky in Muhlenberg County along the Green River of Western Kentucky. At one time, no place in the world produced more coal than Muhlenberg County but those days are long gone. This was one of two world record holding shovels located in the county at the time this video was shot (early 1980's). The largest shovel on here is the Bucyrus Erie 3850-B and is the shovel that was famously buried after finishing its work at this mine. I had a Grandfather and an Aunt that worked at this mine and retired from there. My aunt actually ran the large BE 3850-B shovel from time to time. The bucket on the 3850-B is 115 cubic yards in size. Big enough for two pickup trucks to park in easily with room to move around them! This was the original home of the giants in coal mining!!! Welcome to Muhlenberg County, my home!

Coal mining in the Netherlands 1100-1974
Coal mining in the Netherlands 1100-1974 Coal mining in Limburg, a province of the Netherlands, has taken place since the 16th century. Near the Augustinian Abbey of Rolduc, coal is found very close to the surface. The abbey owned the coal, and beginning in the 16th century hired local miners to extract the coal for sale as fuel. The true extent of the coal reserves in the south-east corner of Limburg first became apparent in 1870, when the wealthy Count Marchant and Ansembourg of Brussels ordered the first boreholes to be drilled near Eygelshoven, and a substantial seam of coal was found at a depth of 154 metres. The demand for coal had grown explosively as a result of increased industrialization and urban expansion, but the national governments regarded any form of interference in the extraction and sale of this fuel as unnecessary. Thus it came about that the first concessions for the extraction of coal in South Limburg were granted without hesitation to foreign firms, although most of the coal consumed in the Netherlands was imported from Germany, and Dutch investors preferred to invest their capital in foreign countries, such as in Russian government loans, American railways, and Hungarian waterworks.

Harlan County, USA.avi
This film documents the coal miners' strike against the Brookside Mine of the Eastover Mining Company in Harlan County, Kentucky in June, 1973. Eastovers refusal to sign a contract (when the miners joined with the United Mine Workers of America) led to the strike, which lasted more than a year and included violent battles between gun-toting company thugs/scabs and the picketing miners and their supportive women-folk. Director Barbara Kopple puts the strike into perspective by giving us some background on the historical plight of the miners and some history of the UMWA.

Anthracite Coal Mining circa 1920
more at http://scitech.quickfound.net/ "Lots of diagrammatic animation. Anthracite coal mining. Underground mining shots." Silent. 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...

Clinton Caught Flip Flopping On Coal
At a town hall event in March, Hillary Clinton said she was going to put coal companies out of business. Now she is in West Virginia, and has walked that statement back. John Iadarola and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. “In March, speaking about renewable energy at a CNN town hall, Hillary Clinton described herself as “the only candidate” with “a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. Because we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business, right? … And we’re going to make it clear that we don’t want to forget those people.” “Those people” didn’t forget her either, or her words about putting them “out of business,” in part because Republicans had made much of her comment at the time. And on Monday, one of “those people” confronted her at a small roundtable event in Williamson, W.Va., in the heart of coal country. His name was Bo Copley, who described himself as an unemployed coal worker. Accompanied by his wife and a photograph of the couple’s children, he had a pointed question for Clinton: “How you could say you are going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend?” he asked, according to the Associated Press. Copley was variously described as “teared up,” “choked up” and “emotional” as he spoke.” Read more here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/05/03/unemployed-w-va-coal-worker-confronts-clinton-over-comment-about-putting-coal-out-of-business/ Hosts: John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore Cast: John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
