The mining company had a "show and tell" day for state and federal workers. Watch a shuttle car as it exits and enters a coal mine portal in Martin County, KY. It goes in and out and in and out and in and out...and no accidents! Be on the lookout for state trucks and pot bellied inspectors!

A & G Coal Corporation has proposed a strip mine on Looney Ridge, above Lynch, Kentucky. It is a continuation of their Appalachia, Virginia strip mine that was recently put on hold by the US EPA because of concerns related to damaging water. A & G mine permit calls for 18 settement ponds on Looney Ridge, just above Lynch. The mine permit area contains more than 10 gas wells. It is directly above 2 active mines and abandon mines. The Lynch City Council has requested a permit hearing. They want to protect their water and the water of nearby communities! The stip mine pictures in this video were taken of the existing A & G mine in Appalachia, Va. This mine will be a continuation of their existing strip mine.

Blazing Trails: From Coal Mines to ATV Tourism in Kentucky
 
04:01
From http://thehardestyear.com: In rural southeastern Kentucky, the hills have always provided. Timber harvesting employed thousands when it began in earnest after the Civil War. Not long after, massive mines began to define this area as "coal country." Until late in the twentieth century, those industries gave this part of Kentucky much of its identity and livelihood. Today both are in decline and employ a fraction of the workforce they saw at their peak. See the whole story at http://thehardestyear.com But some here believe the hills may yet draw another industry to the area: tourism. In Harlan County, on the site of an abandoned coal mine, local government and businesses are trying to carve out a tourism niche by allowing motorized 4x4 enthusiasts to roar into the mountains at the Black Mountain ATV Park.

How is coal mined? - What is Surface Mining and Underground Mining - Video
 
08:10
How is coal mined? Read Full Story: http://www.spoonfeeding.in/2013/02/how-is-coal-mined-what-is-surface.html Mining is the process of removing coal from the ground. There are two types of mining: underground mining and surface mining. When the coal seam is fewer than 125 feet under the surface, it is mined by surface mining. Coal that is deeper than 125 feet is removed from the ground by underground mining. Underground mining is used when the coal seam lies deep in the earth. In an underground mine only some of the coal is removed. The coal that remains helps support the mine roof. Underground mines look like a system of tunnels. The tunnels are used for traveling throughout the mine, moving coal from place to place and allowing air to circulate in the mine. The coal that is mined is put on conveyor belts. The conveyor belts take the coal to the surface. There are three types of underground mines: slope, drift, and shaft. When the coal seam is close to the surface but too deep to use surface mining, a slope mine can be built. In a slope mine a tunnel slants down from the surface to the coal seam. A drift mine is built when the coal seam lies in the side of a hill or mountain. Drift mines may also be built in a surface mine that has become too deep. There are many drift mines in the eastern United States. The most common type of mine in Illinois is the shaft mine. These mines may be 125 to 1,000 feet deep. A large hole, or shaft, is drilled down into the ground until it reaches the coal seam.

Shooting Ol' 14
 
17:32
Ol' 14 is a bull Elk with 7 points on each antler, thus "ol' 14." This video was shot in Kentucky on land that had been reclaimed from strip mining coal. Elk were reintroduced into Kentucky from Utah in the 90s when 1200 Elk were brought in. The herd today, 2013, is up to 19,000. Hunting is now permitted, it wasn't when I shot the video. Not so easy to get close any more.
