Photographed at the Pioneer Coal Mine, Ashland PA
Long ago, this is what lifted the tons of Coal from deep inside a Mine.
This is the Power Machinery that lifted the tons of Coal.
Roads that lead nowhere, but into the brush.
Had the chance to Tour this Coal Processing Plant with 10 other people. It’s very dirty, full of coal dust, and noisy. Here the coal is processed into different size chunks for customers all over the USA. Safety is the main concern of the UMW Union. OSHA has nothing to say about what goes on here. The United Mine Worker’s do!
What remains of a old “drag line” from long ago.
A whole lot of wasted water.
Thank you for stopping by.
