Pennsylvania Anthracite Coal Mining.mpg
Vintage 1920's film showing the workings of an underground Northeastern Pennsylvania Coal Mine. This silent film (originally a 16mm hand-cranked movie) shows the miners arriving at the mine and switching into mining clothes with their street clothes held up by lines near the ceiling. The miner receive safety equipments and electric head lamps and then are issued cases of dynamite. Before entering the mine they update the peg board and take the token that allows the mine operator to know exactly who is in the mine at any given time. Once in the shaft the miners drill a hole in the face of the coal seam and then pack it with the explosives. After the dust clears, the miner and his helper shovel the coal into a cart for movement to the main gangway. There the coal is transferred into larger carts and pulled away by mules. In addition to the mule drivers and "spraggers" the film shows the coal breaker where boys and disabled men pick the slate out of the coal. The creation of the culm pile is shown with railroad cars of mine waste being dumped into giant piles. Finally the coal is washed and sorted into various sizes: stove, egg, nut and then shipped out in railroad cars.

No  9 Mine & Museum
"The No. 9 Coal Mine & Museum is located in Lansford, PA, below the Pocono Mountains. Lansford is located in the western part of Carbon County. The Mine & Museum are located near the banks of Panther Creek on 9 Dock Street, near the junction of Dock and West Ridge Streets. Lansford is part of Lehigh Valley, which is an area in Pennsylvania named after the Lehigh River. This area is sometimes known as the "coal region,'' particularly Carbon County. The No. 9 Coal mine was opened in 1855, but its origin traces back ten years earlier. A large anthracite coal deposit called Mammoth Vein was the focus for most mining in the Lehigh Valley. Major mine systems in the Summit Hill area produced a great deal of coal from the Vein. Unfortunately, the quarry had to be abandoned due to flooding. Mining companies decided to attempt another drilling into Mammoth Vein. Between the years of 1853 and 1856, these attempts met with many difficulties, including cost. Finally, in December of 1857, the No. 9 coal mine had been driven far enough to encounter coal. The next month, the mine was contracted to produce 90,000 tons of coal per year. Anthracite coal is a variety of coal known by its sheen. It has fewer impurities than all other types of coal, which means it has the highest carbon content. During the time of No. 9's operation, anthracite coal was the most popular fuel for heating structures in the North and East of the US. The Mine was operated until 1972. At that time, it was the world's longest running anthracite coal mine. In 2002, the Mine was re-opened as a tourist attraction. The Mine was opened by a non-profit organization by the name of Panther Creek Valley Foundation. Their mission is to preserve the landmark as a heritage site. Visitors to the mine ride 1,600 feet along rail into the mountain. They can examine the miner's hospital, the mule-way, and the original 900 foot elevator shaft. Also on the grounds is the "Wash Shanty,'' which includes the tools and paraphernalia that the miner's used to wash their clothes and equipment. The Museum has items such as the tools, food cans, blasting equipment, and more that belonged to the miners of No. 9. Exhibits in the Museum also include carved pieces of coal, historical photographs, paintings, models, a replica of a miner's kitchen, and other artifacts. The gift shop sells items such as books, carved coal memorabilia, t-shirts, and miner's hats. The site also has picnic facilities and restrooms. Parking is free. The Museum and gift shop are open year round, Wednesday through Sunday, noon-4pm. The Mine is open for guided tours from May to Labor Day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. From Labor Day through October tours are only on Saturday and Sunday. Mine tours start at 11:00am and run hourly until 3:15. Temperature within the mines averages the mid-50s. The temperature in Lansford is, on average, warmest in July, at 71 degrees. Visitors entering the mine may will to wear a light jacket or sweater due to the chill in the mines."

Coal Mine Tour
The first of this video I shot while touring an underground coal mine museum in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia back in 2008. The second part of the video was filmed recently in Stellarton, NS where Pioneer Coal is strip mining the old MacGregor and Albion mine site. There are five seams of coal here the thickest being The Foord seam at about 45 feet in thickness. All five seams have been previously mined via the old school method as described in this video. The song is a remake of Neil Youngs 1972 hit song Old Man and was rewritten and performed by Redlight King. Hope you enjoy the show.

Made in Germany | Coal Mining Technology
Germany's coal mining industry is all but finished as viable coal seams are worked out. Following an earthquake, mines in the Saarland will close in 2012 and mining in North Rhine-Westphalia's will end in 10 years at most. But German mining equipment is still in demand; more than a hundred mostly medium-sized businesses have found customers in countries where mining is booming. One such company is Eickhoff, in Bochum, which produces milling and cutting equipment for coal mining. Now Eickhoff exports 95% of its mining equipment, mainly to China and Russia. Robert Donauer went to a mine in the Ruhr Valley and paid a visit to Eickhoff.

knox mine disaster location and footage
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.

This 1930s German silent educational film shows miners working in the depths of a large coal mine, and their routine underground pulling coal into a long conveyer belt. An underground train system is also seen pulling ore cars out of the mine and into a massive elevator for transport to the surface. Air hammers and other equipment for excavation is also shown.

About 200 feet down is the first level and the water table. It is lit to the water and it can be seen down along the shaft. This however is not shown in this video.
