How mountaintop mining affects life and landscape in West Virginia
Deep layers of underground coal are all but gone in West Virginia after 200 years of relentless mining, leaving thinner seams of coal on top of the state's beautiful mountains. But surface mining carries a huge cost: nothing less than mountains themselves. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien reports on how the Appalachian landscape is being fundamentally and irrevocably changed.

Strip Mining for Coal
A belt line is used to carry spoils from open pit coal mine. A D-11 pushes material down to a 950 LeToureau loader. The loader dumps material into a crusher that breaks the rock down small enough to be sent up a series of conveyor belts and a long line to the stockpile. There are five previous mined seams of coal in this pit and you can see some of the old workings in the video.

Mountaintop Removal Mining, Charleston, WV
This video clip highlights the destructive process of strip mining of Appalachian mountains near Charleston, WV. Once mountains are blasted with dynamite to access the coal, they are destroyed forever. These mountain ranges are among the oldest geological formations that exist on our planet (480 million years old) and are one of the most biologically diverse regions in the temperate world. But there's more. Mountaintop mining removal not only destroys the mountains, but also the lives of the people who live there. Residents next to these operations live with destroyed habitat and noise. Coal dust from blasting and coal processing operations and contaminated water from valley fills and coal slurry injections into the ground causes respiratory disease, kidney and gall bladder failure, and cancer. They live with constant fear that a coal slurry impoundment might break, causing death and destruction on a massive scale. The flyover was provided by SouthWings (www.southwings.org) and depicts Kayford Mountain, a 1,200-acre mountaintop removal mine operation; Marsh Fork Elementary School, located just 150 feet from a coal loading silo and 400 yards from a 2.8 billion gallon toxic waste impoundment; and the town of Sylvester, a community whose health and property has been adversely affected by pervasive black coal dust from an adjacent mountaintop removal mining operation. Aerial footage was taken during an Eco-Justice Collaborative June, 2009 delegation to Charleston, WV. Visit www.ecojusticecollaborative.org for more information.

Spruce#1 Mountaintop Removal Strip Mine: Logan County, West Virginia
Aerial footage of the Spruce #1 MTR strip mine near the towns of Blair and Sharples, in Logan County, WV. The original mining permit proposed stripping 3,113 acres, but was reduced to 2,265 after legal challenges. What you see here is fewer than 500 acres that have been mined so far. Many of the surrounding mountains and streams will be destroyed if this mine isn't stopped. Click the link below for a satellite map showing the area that's been mined. You can see the entire area covered by the permit by selecting the "mining permits" box at the upper right: http://tagis.dep.wv.gov/imap/imap.php?lod=81&lom=47&los=52.0000&lad=37&lam=52&las=39.0000 Permit Details: https://apps.dep.wv.gov/WebApp/_dep/search/Permits/OMR/Permit_details.cfm?permit_id=S501397&dep_office_id=OMR&responsible_party_name=MINGO%20LOGAN%20COAL%20COMPANY

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.

Unplugging MTR -- Mountain Top Removal coal mining in Southern Appalachia
Turning words into actions: Rebelling against electriciy suppliers that consume the largest qualities of coal mined by mountaintop removal methods, such as Duke Energy, Specifically, the organized switching-off of homes in select communities during periods of time (hours) on certain days. North Carolina electric industry: http://www.ncuc.net/industries/electric/electric.htm I don't like knocking the mountains down in West Virginia to make coal says Ted Turner http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4HGDzkkNP8 --- COMMENT: The Masters of Coal in the U.S. are now the electricity utilities, not the mining companies. Until several years ago, coal mining companies could sell more than they could produced. Now -- like never before -- there's ability to produce more coal than is needed. This has resulted in the U.S. electrical utilities becoming the masters of coal -- controlling which coalfields get mined and by which companies. --- 10/28/2010 - http://www2.mountaintimes.com/entertainment_focus/Trees_On_Fire_id_002433 (Excerpts) Currently, [coal] strip mining is not permitted in North Carolina. Appalachian Voices says it's still something North Carolina needs to be concerned about. Why? Because North Carolinians use the coal. "We're estimating 25 percent of the generation that we have is coming from mountaintop removed coal supply," Duke spokesman Erin Culbert said. "And almost all of our boilers are designed to use central Appalachian coal," Culbert said. MCR is a cheaper practice than traditional mining. While BREMCO and Duke are active in energy conservation education and promotion of alternative energies, the spokespersons don't anticipate MCR to go away anytime soon. --- 6/12/2010 - Duke rethinking options on use of mountaintop coal http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2010/06/12/1495016/duke-rethinking-options-on-use.html (Excerpts) Duke Energy made an unusual request of its coal suppliers last month: Quote the price of coal mined without blasting Appalachian mountaintops. With that, the nation's third-largest utility in power sales hinted that it might cut ties to the environmentally destructive and politically explosive practice. Mountaintop-removal mining, or MTR, opens coal seams by removing the earth over them, and dumps the rock and dirt into valleys below. About 25 percent of coal in the central Appalachians, where most of North Carolina's fuel comes from, is mined that way. "We see mountaintop-removal coal as nonsustainable coal," said senior vice president Paul Newton, whose duties include overseeing fuel purchases. Duke's request of suppliers, a first for the company, will reveal price differences between coal mined by mountaintop removal and non-MTR coal - and its availability. Coal from different types of mines is often blended together. Some environmentalists suspect Duke is trying to buff its public image and has no real intention of banning mountaintop coal from its fuel mix. Duke burned 14 million tons of coal in its eight Carolinas coal-fired power plants last year, a lower figure than usual as electricity sales slumped during the recession. It typically uses about 45 million tons a year at its plants in the Carolinas, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. --- 6/7/2010 - http://blogs.newsobserver.com/business/duke-energy-questions-blasting-mountaintops-for-coal (Excerpts) Duke and Raleigh-based Progress Energy get nearly all their coal from Appalachian coal mines. About half the coal -- some 15 million tons a year -- comes from MTR with the rest comes from underground mines. North Carolina is one of the nation's top users of mountaintop coal --. about half of its electricity si from coal-burning power plants with about half that coal mined by MTR . Nationwide, about 6.5 percent of the total coal output depends on blasting off mountaintops. === Margaret A.

Mountaintop Removal: An American Tragedy
Narrated by Susan Sarandon, this video shows firsthand footage of mountaintop removal coal mining and its impacts on Appalachian mountains, drinking water and families. Mountaintop removal is a mining practice where explosives are used to blast the tops off mountains to expose the thin seams of coal beneath. Once blasted, earth and coal dust from the mountaintop is dumped into neighboring valleys and waterways. Hundreds of mountaintops have been lost forever to MTR, and according to a 2005 environmental impact statement, nearly 2,000 miles of Appalachian streams have already been buried or contaminated by the devastating mining practice. Take action today and tell banks to stop financing this American tragedy at http://ran.org/mtrbanks

Anthracite Coal Mining circa 1920

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...

Yellow Creek, KY - Mining Site - RFKinEKY performance
During the 'poverty tour' in 1968, RFK stopped, unannounced, at a Yellow Creek strip-mining site. After a contentious moment of negotiation between RFK and the mine's security staff, mine owner Bill Sturgill allowed Kennedy and his entourage access to the site. During RFKinEKY's recreation of the tour in 2004, 'B&W Resources' gave access to their strip mine site in Knott County, where former Appalachian Volunteer Steve Cawood discusses Kennedy's tour of the Yellow Creek Mine and safety director for B&W Resources Doug Melton speaks about his work. RFK in EKY, The Robert F. Kennedy Performance Project, (2004) is a series of public conversations and art activities centered around the real-time, site-specific, intermedia performance recreating Robert Kennedy's 1968 two-day, 200 mile "poverty tour" of south-eastern Kentucky.

Something's Rising: Appalachians Fighting Mountaintop Removal
Novelist House (Clay's Quilt) and Kentucky journalist Howard, both "children of Appalachia," decided to pick up where the national media have left off in their environmental obsession, illuminating the long-growing mining crisis in Central Appalachia. Twelve Appalachians-among them a college student, former union organizers, community activists and the octogenarian "mother of folk," Jean Ritchey-provide first-hand accounts of a disappearing way of life, a vital ecology in rapid decline, an industry that refuses to take responsibility for the devastation it causes (blowing the tops off mountains is only the latest, most destructive technique), and a nation too hooked on cheap energy to help. If nothing else, these oral histories will give readers a sense of what's at stake on a personal level. Student Nathan Hall calls mining the best job he ever had: "I met the most interesting characters of my life... the most hilarious, most good hearted." Says Judy Bond, lifelong resident of the leading coal-producing county in W.V., "The more coal we mine, the poorer we get." This important collection illuminates the ongoing betrayal of the American mining town.

Surface mining
Surface mining, including strip mining, open-pit mining and mountaintop removal mining, is a broad category of mining in which soil and rock overlying the mineral deposit are removed. It is the opposite of underground mining, in which the overlying rock is left in place, and the mineral removed through shafts or tunnels. Surface mining began in the mid-sixteenth century and is practiced throughout the world, although the majority of surface mining occurs in North America. It gained popularity throughout the 20th century, and is now the predominant form of mining in coal beds such as those in Appalachia and America's Midwest. This video is targeted to blind users.

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.
