Harlan County, USA is a 1976 Oscar-winning documentary film covering the "Brookside Strike", an effort of 180 coal miners and their wives against the Duke Power Company-owned Eastover Coal Company's Brookside Mine and Prep Plant in Harlan County, southeast Kentucky in 1973.[2] Directed and produced by Barbara Kopple, who has long been an advocate of workers' rights, Harlan County, U.S.A. is less ambivalent in its attitude toward unions than her later American Dream, the account of the Hormel Foods strike in Austin, Minnesota in 1985-86.

Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History
 
42:27
Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History Coal mining is the process of extracting 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 Kingdom and South Africa a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, 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, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers. Small-scale mining of surface deposits dates back thousands of years. For example, in Roman Britain, the Romans were exploiting most of the major coalfields by the late 2nd century AD. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining

Within just a few miles of each other the Kentucky Coal Mining Museum and Portal 31 make up a complete educational and fun experience in learning about coal mining. Portal 31 was once one of the largest mines in the world before it was close in 1963. In 2009 it was turned in to an exhibition mine with animatronic figures and videos that explain the history of the mine and of coal mining in general. The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum has pieces from that help to illustrate this history of both the coal mine and what a mining town was like. The museum also has a Loretta Lynn exhibit and an underground mining experience.

The land is rich with coal, yet its residents are denied adequate food, housing, or medical care. This, the Appalachian region, was the nation's first designated poverty area. This film focuses upon Eastern Kentucky where mechanization of the mines is replacing people and jobs. A lack of education and other working skills makes these residents prisoners of the land, as seen by a discerning interview with a local family. Filmed in 1968

Coal mining in America's heartland | DW Documentary

West Virginia, USA - under its wild mountain idyll hides the "black hell": A labyrinth of dark tunnels - hard life in a coal mine. [Online until: 15 August 2019] "Wild, wonderful West Virginia” - that’s how the small state nestled in the Appalachian Mountains bills itself. This documentary reports on the daily struggle facing local coal miners hoping for help from Donald Trump; a sheriff combating the opioid epidemic that has already claimed thousands of lives; and a Cherokee environmental activist whose efforts have earned her intimidation and threats. The whistle of a locomotive at the front of an old coal train, quiet winding roads, and hardly a highway to be found - that’s still the image that many have of West Virginia today. But beneath the forest-covered mountains lies a labyrinth of tunnels just one meter high, in which miners still spend their entire working days toiling in the dark on their hands and knees. The camera team accompanies a traditional coal mining family as they go about their day. Together with the family’s two sons, Scott and Steven Lockhart, the crew ventures into the mine. Conversations with the miners reveal why people who had been lifelong Democratic Party supporters are suddenly placing their hopes for the future in Donald Trump. But the documentary also ventures beyond the coal mines to uncover the lesser-known sides of this Appalachian state - from snake-handling Pentecostal churches to the bluegrass and mountain ballads of Alan Cathead Johnston. We also speak with Sheriff Martin West, who sued the country’s three biggest pharmaceutical makers for their role in the opioid epidemic that has swept the region. And we meet another person who has decided to fight back: Maria Gunnoe, a young Cherokee activist who has dared to take on the coal barons that are ravaging the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Scenes from the one-man play "In the Veins: Conversations from a Coal Town." Travel through a Kentucky coal company town as three characters unearth their way of life above and below ground. Set in the early 1930s, the play explores the many concerns of families living within towns that were built and operated by coal companies in eastern Kentucky. Developed from oral histories and other archival sources, one actor portrays three characters, each with his own unique perspective of life in a coal town. Willie Blanton is the 14-year-old son of an Appalachian farmer turned coal miner. He offers a glimpse of the change effected by coal mining on families of Appalachia. Vincent Scopa, an Italian immigrant and injured miner, now works in the company store. Scopa supports the company and opposes unionization. He and his family of five operate a "boarding house" for newly arrived immigrants. Billie Donaldson is a native Kentuckian and a staunch union supporter fighting for better working conditions for miners. He is a member of the U.M.W. and the N.M.U.

Knott County Ky Coal Mine Disaster 1961

Knott County Ky Coal Mine Disaster 1961 Music By Country Singer Vince Gill Bluegrass singers Ricky Skaggs The film you are about to see was made two or three years after Kennie was killed in this mine. Filmed by Bennett and Doug Adams This The Mountain Eagle News Paper that came out 3 days after Kennie Adams coal mine accident. The Date of this accident was December 12th Tuesday 1961 about 12 noon, Kennie Adams was found on December 15th Friday 1961. This is part of the crowd of miners that gathered Wednesday afternoon at the mine opening of B&A Coal Comp. in Knott County to see if they could help in attempts to find the body of Kennie Adams of Van, Ky. partner in the mine. Kennie Adams was one of four men trapped beneath a roof fall Tuesday. Bodies of the other three were removed earlier Wednesday and Kennie Adams is presumed dead. Large groups of miners volunteered their services as soon as the word got out. This picture was snapped for "The Mountain Eagel" by Shade Frazier. Rescue workers were still searching today for the body of Kennie Adams, Van Ky, presumed dead in the debris of a roof fall which took the lives of three fellow miners in Knott county coal mine Tuesday afternoon, Rescue operation in the B&A Coal Comp. mine on Caudill's Branch of Carr Creek ( Known as Rope Works ) in Knott County were forced to halt this afternoon so more timber could be installed within the mine to help insure the safety of the rescue workers. They were expected to resume when the timbers were place, but observers said there was no indication when the body of Kennie Adams night be found. Men returning to Whitesburg today reported the mine roof was "Working Alive" and the conditions were dangerous for the rescue crew. Bodies of three other miners were discovered Wednesday within 20 feet of the edge of the roof fall, which covered an area estimated to be as much as 60,000 square feet and 75 feet high. The rescue workers said the position of the bodies indicated the men had been fleeing the mine when they were caught by the fall. The three bodies removed were those of Josh Noble of Van, Ky. Sidney Bryant of Premium, Ky. and Ben Sexton of Smithsboro Ky. The men were "Pulling Pillars" at the time the fall occurred, some 700 feet from the mine entrance. State Mine Inspector Bill Wright of Whitesburg said the fall occurred about noon Tuesday. Two other men AC Mullins of Breedings Creek, Ky. and Bethel Hall of Isom, Ky. were able to escape from the mine when they heard the fall start. Dave Craft of Smithsboro, Ky. a team operator was outside the mine. As soon as the news of the disaster spread, miners from Letcher, Knott and Perry Counties quickly volunteered their services for the rescue operation. From the first there was little hope of finding any of the men alive. The first shift of rescue workers was sent home about 9:30 pm Tuesday and told to report back the next morning. Another crew took their places. Cars lined the highway leading to Hindman and the dirt road leading to the mine, which is accessible only by truck or jeep in the bad weather. Bitter cold and heavy rain plagued the men waiting outside the mine to see if they were needed in the rescue work. The crowd outside the mine numbered several hundred most of the time. Miners leaving the scene often had to wade the cold water of the branch to reach their cars. The bodies of Sexton and Bryant were brought to Craft Funeral Home in Whitesburg. Sexton, who had been working in the mine only two months, was the father of a three year old daughter. He would have been 23 next Jan 13th. The bodies of Bryant and Sexton were removed about noon Wednesday. Noble's body was discovered shortly afterward, but could not be removed for several hours. All three were badly crushed The body of Kennie Adams one of four Letcher County men trapped last week in a coalmine rock fall in Knott County, was discovered and removed from the mine last Friday. Witnesses said Kennie Adams, a partner in the mine, was found near where the bodies of the other victims were discovered. He was crouched under a slab of rock, they said, and his body was not mangled like those of the others coal miners.

This pulsation is caused by these valves that you see on the opposite side allowing air to pulsate the water upwards and downwards. The bed of coal and shale is raised up, the shale being heavier than coal sinks to the bottom onto the perforated plate and the coal is carried forward by the flow of the water. The shale being sunk to the bottom is elevated by the shale elevator to the storage tanker and is now ready to be taken away to the waste head. The coal leaves the end of the primary box for the sizing screen". Various shots of the process described. GV Tank engine pulls away with line of trucks.

The Coal Town System

West Virginia coal operators built small, company-owned towns for their miners to live in. The coal towns were almost always unincorporated; there were no elected officials, no independent police forces. Owners hired private detective agencies to watch over their workforce. Company towns were also untethered from the free market competition owners usually championed. "The Mine Wars" premieres January 26, 2016 on American Experience PBS.

THE HILLS ABOVE VERDA, KENTUCKY, ARE POCKMARKED WITH ABANDONED COAL MINES. MINERS LIKE STEVEN FIELDS ARE FEELING ABANDONED, TOO. SOUNDBITE (English), Steven Fields, Laid-Off Miner "They're not doing any hiring up here." FIELDS WAS MAKING TWENTY-FIVE-FIFTY AN HOUR UNTIL HE WAS LAID OFF FIVE YEARS AGO. HIS LAST JOB AT HIS FAMILY'S T-SHIRT PRINTING BUSINESS _ TEN BUCKS AN HOUR. SOUNDBITE (English), Steven Fields, Laid-Off Miner "A poor person can't make it around here." THE WAR TO UNIONIZE THE BOOMING MINES IN THE 1930S EARNED THIS PLACE THE NICKNAME `BLOODY HARLAN.' NOW, MANY HERE IN SOUTHEASTERN KENTUCKY ARE FIGHTING SIMPLY TO SURVIVE. IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS, HALF OF THE COAL JOBS IN EASTERN KENTUCKY HAVE VANISHED. SOME BLAME IT ON GOVERNMENT OVER-REGULATION, WHAT THEY CALL THE `WAR ON COAL.' OTHERS SAY IT'S COMPETITION FROM CHEAPER COAL SOURCES AND NATURAL GAS. EDDIE JONES WAS LAID OFF IN 2013. HIS UNEMPLOYMENT RAN OUT LAST DECEMBER. THE ONLY JOBS THAT PAY A HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE CLOSE TO A MINER'S SALARY ARE AWAY FROM HERE. SOUNDBITE (English), Eddie Jones, Laid-Off Miner "I'm agitated. And I'm frustrated. But, but I ain't no quitter." KEITH JOHNSON IS ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES. HE'S BLOWN THROUGH FORTY-THOUSAND DOLLARS IN RETIREMENT SAVINGS AND RACKED UP A TWENTY-THOUSAND DOLLAR HOSPITAL BILL. BETWEEN LAYOFFS AND SHUTDOWNS, HE WORKED AT FOUR DIFFERENT MINES IN THE PAST YEAR. BUT HE WAS WORKING. SOUNDBITE (English), Keith Johnson, Third-Generation Miner "A few years I would have said we had it made and we was going to live a long life and retire here ... But it's dim right now, yeah." JOHNSON MAY HAVE TO JOIN OTHERS WHO'VE MIGRATED TO WESTERN KENTUCKY, WHERE THE MINES ARE HUMMING. FIELDS ISN'T READY TO LEAVE HARLAN COUNTY OR COAL JUST YET. SOUNDBITE (English), Steven Fields, Laid-Off Miner "This is what's in my DNA. Coal mining. I miss it." DESPITE LUNG TROUBLE, FIELDS THINKS HE HAS ANOTHER TEN YEARS OF MINING LEFT IN HIM. THE QUESTION IS: HOW MANY MORE YEARS DOES COAL HAVE HERE?

Ohio's Hidden Mine
 
18:11
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.
