If Joe Biden wins the next election, he will teach you to code. What ever the hell that is.
A bit misleading in the info. Coal, in 2019, for Electric Generation is 20% Here is a link for proof. https://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.php?id=39992
The part that bothers me with long wall mining, is the subsidence. When you rip out all those pillars, expect subsidence. Look at what happened along Rt 70, roadway dropped like 5 feet!
in USA it's always slope or drift mine...not a true mine..not interesting..!
In Europa it's always very deep vertical shaft and headgear,
I work for a company that builds new cutter heads for them and and a few others. Those cutter heads heavy as hell for their size but it’s cool to see how it looks when it’s running
Joy went out of business last year (2016)...they made mining machinery...end of coal mining is near. We have 90 trains a day on the Conrail/NF Southern tracks and its a rare sight indeed to see one loaded with coal. Mountain-top removal gets coal for 1/2 the cost of deep mining...that's why its done.
I heard that ten to twenty thousand coal mining jobs will be created by Trump in Kentucky and maybe forty thousand in West Virginia by the end of the year. before this happens Trump could get the coal miners a job at the southern border wall construction sites to get out of poverty and off welfare.
The video you just watched is what I did for 32 yrs for a living,that machine can definitely crank out a lot of coal.
I work for a company that makes a lot of this stuff. Really cool to see it in action.
How do I get a job there mechanic now
Every American miner should be thankful that Bob Murray isn't the U.S. Secretary of Labor...
