About: Ep.19 STELLARTON - Abandoned Coal Mines
You said you't stay out of these !!!
Here in the U K we had a Colliery of which Had a 870 Yards Deep Mine Shaft and It had six or Seven Seams of Coal on top of each other : the Smallest Seam of Coal was 9 ft 7" High and the Biggest of them all was 40 ft High . It was considered too Dangerous to Take the whole Seam of Coal and we'd have to Leave 14 Ft of Coal : The Quality of that Coal was High Grade coal . The Video of which I am seeing where the seam of Coal is about 20 ft Looks a Poor quality as if it was shale and Not really Good enough Quality for anything other than Using within a Coal Fired Power station; But as it was said in the Video it must Have Been Hard work Hundreds of years ago to Mine such Coal
I never understood how layering was suppose to happen. So coal was once trees and stuff then what it rained dirt continuously, I don't get it.
Cool video. If you wanna see some big open pit mines you should get a tour of syncrude it will blow your mind how big it is.
You are mistaken that is coal, you also are making assumptions during your video, nobody drove a backhoe into the tunnel and blocked them off, there is absolutely no evidence of that!!! the material that is blocking the tunnel came from the top down, it was either put there bye man to control airflow,, or simply just a cave in,, I repeat cave in ! stay out.
Did they highwall mine in past the strip limit?
Why would someone go to such lengths to accurately document a mine, -then bring the video back and add in a bunch of inane sound effects? The sound effects do NOTHING for the production but distract and annoy. The source material is tainted. The added production elements subtract from the work. Please eschew the sound effects in the future.
Awesome video, early 70's and earlier, Dad and I in our truck got coal right where sobeys head office by the highway. My grandfather cut lumber and traded that for coal from the mines.
Given their wealth in hydropower and nuclear power, why does Canada bother with coal?
to many men died there.
MINERS DIED TERE IN THE 50'S WANDERING IF YOU DUF=G THEIR GRAVES UP.
You can see the water marks where they was totally flooded before Pioneer mining dug them out.
Awesome stuff, I just subscribed too.
I've watched more mine explorations on YT than I can count, but this was as promised, something completely different.
Excellent production. It made me feel I was there with you. Thank you for sharing.
So fascinating. Thank you. X
Great Video... Thank you for sharing this!
1 2 3 4...
I just shut my fingers in the car door.
Son of a diddly.
Dangerous,Dangerous,Dangerous.Many years as a coal miner.There is no glory and was no glory in the coal mines. The behavior you are promoting will get people killed.Appear to be lots of "experts"supporting the behavior.Will they be there when someone gets killed and men will have to risk their lives to bring a body home to an unfortunate family.Please think twice before you continue on!!!!
Look at the water marks on the wall. It was flooded, not bird droppings.
