Also, if you look closely at the stone wall, you will see a hole. This is where deep mines went through many years ago.

Yes, sure is nice L. I was there with Jack and FF too and was lucky to be on the tour. I also enjoyed the FB video of the string of charges freeing up more of the Mammoth vein.

Once blasting is complete we begin moving the rock to access the raw coal.

I also want to thank you for sharing the process with us. Now when I look at my pile of black Lehigh rocks I'm getting an idea of what it takes to mine them.
