About: ABANDONED COAL MINE!!! hidden in the back woods of East Tennessee
Never enter a Coal Mineshaft: It could be your last breath-- "Blackdamp" is invisible and you can not smell it... you will DIE WITH NO WARNING!
I leave near there it’s not abounded
look for a belt that goes underground that called slope belt should be high enough to walk it to the bottom of the slope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Prayers for your dad!
The coal came from the top of the MTN!
My family was the bosses and superintendent's there,I worked the mines there.
it was queen Anne and then S&H
Its a prep plant not a coal mine. Interesting fact is there have been more coal related deaths on the surface opposed to underground in the mines
i sure hope you go back with a partner cuz i have worked in an underground mine in southern west Virginia for 10 years and i have never seen the inside of a prep plant go figure so that would be nice to see and just to clear up a couple things you said during you cool video a mine SHAFT goes straight down into the earth and the miners ride an elevator down into a mine and a mine you can walk straight into on a level plane is called a drift mouth and a mine with a drift mouth that is not a level entry is called a slope mine so now at least you can talk like a miner lol...and above all i hope your daddy feels better but there is no recovery from black lung once you have it its game over he may live for years and years which i hope is the case but the black lung will always be with him but thats one of the job hazards and we all know that when we go down into the bowels of the earth and risk our lives so every one can have electricity and make up and tires and steel and everything else that coal is used for or made with so god bless your daddy and yourself love you vids btw.... oh one more fact for you the coal is not washed with water in the big pool at the tipple that pool is filled with magnetite which makes the slate and rock fall to the bottom of the pool and makes the coal float to the top where its skimmed off the top then run through the plant which is full of several screens the coal falls through then they crush it down to the size that the customer tells them that they want their coal to be and its dried also now ya know lol
my papa was in the coal mine thang were people died and his pinkie finger was cut off by failing rocks that's what my dad tells me
I love down the road😊 Many a trip.on the RZR there
That welder in that room was from 1984 that was a Miller arc. Sorry to hear about your father honestly. If you hear about the mines land for sale I have interest in purchasing it.
I actually lived there I seen that about every day
That shute you walked through said you didnt know what it was for well its so a coal truck pulls in there the top opens and dumps coal into the truck. The mine will be quite far from there thats the preperation plant and it can travel miles on a belt line from the mines to the plant and some of those shutes you will find over train tracks where they load trains to haul it of course thats here in West Virginia! Anytime you have a coal related question dont hesitate to ask me I can answer it for ya!
What's the address?

Can you explore more abandoned coal mine sites I find them really interesting
