About: Coal Mining - Somerset Pennsylvania


I wish they would have explained the project and process a little. I have been in and around mines but don't understand . Was this an old strip mine or a deep mine cut out by strip mining? It looks like they got some different grades of coal?
is that stumps from an old deep mine?
That a Komatsu PC2000 working.
Wilson Creek Job!
If you don't mind me asking, where is this pit in somerset? I have some family out there and id love to check out some Larger mining backhoes.
Nice view I don't often see.  Neat to see the water truck.
Wow, think I want to go back to work.   Good video
Excellent
