Explore the world's oldest continously operated anthracite coal mine (1855-1972). Any guys picking up coal from South Tamaqua Coal Pockets, the mine tour is about 10 minutes away & Jeddo Coal Co. is about 20 miles away, & Harmoney Coal Co. is about 50 minutes away. It's a non profit organization with a Mine museum along with the Coal Mine Tour. It's also close to Jim Thorpe for people who are vacationing there. For more information go to http://no9mine.tripod.com. Also close to the area is 2 "LCN drag lines" that are working and can be seen from the road. Phone # is 570-645-7074. Jack Coal Cracker

Jack, we already visited No.9 a couple years ago. Nice tour! Mike was our tour guide. The kids had a great time, and we enjoyed the walk thru your Museum. After the tour, we had a great Picnic-lunch at your tables.
The kids also enjoyed playing on the old Lokie #51 Lokie Returns to Mine No. 9 .
Thanks for a great day!
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Take Coal Berners advise, Pioneer & Lackawanna & No. 9 tours all compliment each other. They're all different types of mines. If you'r in N E. PA see at least one tour. Also thank you for the LCN info. My dad mined fr the LCN # 8 in Coaldale, PA for 33 years. Also, I have that picture 18" X 24" of No. 6 Breaker on my wall in my family room. Berner, you made my day. Thanks, Jack
