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.

ECS Helps Keep the National Coal Mining Museum Above Water
The National Coal Mining Museum for England has been offering visitors the chance to learn more about this ancient industry for over 25 years. As with most coal mines, there is a constant build up of water in the underground workings that makes its way to the old mineshafts. This water needs to be pumped out and treated before it is discharged into the local watercourse. ECS Engineering Services has been responsible for maintaining the pumps and the treatment works for the past 18 years and ensuring that the water levels remain under control. The museum is based at the site of Caphouse Colliery in Overton, West Yorkshire and originally opened in 1988 as the Yorkshire Mining Museum after the colliery was closed in 1985. In 1995, it gained national status and at this point ECS was appointed to maintain the water pumping equipment and the treatment works, which it has been doing ever since. The contract has seen a permanent presence of ECS engineers, who are responsible for preventing the museum from filling up with ground water and ensuring that the treated water meets the standards set by the Environment Agency (EA).

The Mine Wars | PBS America
Premieres 9pm, Wednesday 29 June on Freesat 156 | Sky 534 | Virgin Media 276 Following its European premiere at the Sheffield Doc Fest, this documentary recalls the struggle for trade union recognition by mine workers in West Virginia, a battle that lasted two decades. At the beginning of the 20th century, coal was the engine of American industrial progress. The coal industry employed over 700,000 men, yet few Americans gave much thought to the price paid by those whose working days were spent underground. With entire communities owned by the mining companies, conditions and pay were strictly controlled. The stage was set for conflict, and the spark that ignited the flame arrived in 1901 in the shape of Mary Harris "Mother" Jones, an outspoken labour organiser and activist. West Virginian miners went on strike in 1902, with the employees demanding shorter workdays, higher wages and recognition of the union. It was to be the first of a series of industrial disputes that frequently erupted into violence, with successive state governors being forced to declare martial law as the coal companies engaged paramilitary forces to combat the strikers, who themselves were heavily armed. Superior force was eventually to prevail, however, and in the early 1920s the strikes eventually petered out. It would not be until 1933 that Congress passed legislation guaranteeing the workers' right to unionise.

In beautiful Scranton, Pennsylvania you'll find all sorts of stuff that will never cease to amaze. Here we find an old coal mine. Personally, a miner's job would not be top on my list of careers. If a miner had a fatal accident the coal company would just drop off his body at home for his wife to take care of. Now this widow of 4 children has to either remarry or send her sons to work in the mine. Thankfully, we live now! Enjoy this little excursion and give it a thumbs up if you like it!
