About: Burning coal mine in West Virginia

When i went riding 1 month ago i saw in this matewon Wv trail 18
id dig it out and go for an exploration
Looks like the one in Logan County,Wv near Buffalo Creek and Huff Creek. Which both of those are near Man,Wv. I was born and raised on Buffalo Creek and now live near Logan about 45 minutes away and I'm also an underground coal miner. Well laid off one because of Obamas dumbass! But anyways, that's slate burning underground from an old coal mine. If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's been burning for probably 20 years or longer, so that little bit of dirt you pushed in there was a waste of time. Lol. But even if it's another one, you still wasted your time doing that. Lol. Where was this at exactly? Well, you not being a local you probably don't know where you are in the mountains lol, but what towns were closest to where you were? Like where was y'all at right before y'all first came up the mountain?
