So quiet now. I can only imagine the sounds in its day. Amazing
Well built. Still up after all these years . Glad you have historical photos and data of the place
OMG! Dude, PLEASE don't post mine names and locations. It's bad enough to upload anonymous videos. A) you risk drawing people to the mine who don't know what they're doing or will trash it B) you also risk getting the mine reported and sealed up, which ruins it for fellow explorers like me. Also, if you ever go in an abandoned coal mine again, please bring either a gas detector or miner's flame safety lamp. Black damp is a gas present in coal mines which can overcome you and kill you rapidly. It's extremely important to never go in a mine without some kind of lamp or detector. Good luck in the future.
I'm laid off coal miner got a family to take care of I can't find a job to pay anything I have never stolen anything in my life I like to find some old abandon mines to get copper,metal

Amazing place, love the history, coal helped build America. ;]
Is this the one across from Jack Williams you said about or is there another video?
Another Jim Dandy video! Thank you gentlemen. Very entertaining.
you really need a flashlight..a zoom in of the darkness without a good light shinning ahead is a bit annoying lol
Great video, I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing it with us!
I was born and raised in Milton, PA and for the most part of my childhood we lived in houses that had coal fired furnaces. I remember my dad saying he would order Glen Burn coal from the local distributor. There were times when I shovelled coal into our furnace and I also had a part time job at a church where I shovelled lots of the stuff. All that until I was about 16 years old. It was not until I was about 16 years old that we finally had a gas furnace.
this came out great!!! i cant wait to check it out possibly at the end of this month. i know a couple of the house seem to be pump houses but wasnt 100% sure exactly what they were. kinda hard to find info on the buildings. im thinking it was water in that chute. if it was for coal i think you would notice some that overflowed on the ground below. but then again it did seem like it had some kind of sifter in it. i probably wouldve walked in it to like bernie lol.
Cool vid bud, i like your vids about how you explore old buildings and parks. Keep up the great work.
Hello That was interesting place still mutch old equipment and remains.
Great video and you made a trip to another of my old stomping grounds in PA. I remember when that mine was still being worked and when it shut down. The Shamokin/Sunbury Power Plant was still burning coal and the piles of coal were enormous in the early to late 70's when I traveled out there. How all of that area has changed over time. Thanks for sharing and the memories.
Hey! Amazing video! Keep going with a great work, would you do me a favour and check out my channel? :)
most of those buildings with the pumps were for silt. that hoist is awesome. I've heard the breaker came down around 2000.
Very good video bro like from me
