About: Ep.19 STELLARTON - Abandoned Coal Mines

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.
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!

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.
Awesome tour. So much history...I can just see those miners working there ass off in there. Being a joker... It would be funny to walk out of one of those drifts underwear only...hair all wacked out when the strip mine guys are at work. I would ask; what century is it....scratch my balls....y'all got a beer on ya! Lo!
My grandfather and father worked those mines....really enjoyed this "history" tour thank you so much.I grew up playing in the woods that once covered that area that is now an open pit.Very heart rendering for me.
very cool. i have a great grandfather who was found murdered in a copper mine somewhere in pictou county 19 years after he went missing, they still dont know who did it, and he was from stellarton. seeing as how i dont live in nova scotia or have contact with any relatives there now, can anybody shed some light on whereabouts an abandoned copper mine would be in pictou, if there arent a lot of them, that is!
Hi, great video. I have done 2 short movies concerning mining in South Wales on my Youtube channel "UAV PAP". I hope to do more when time and weather permits.
Are you using some sort of voice distortion?
Great that you have documented something that will soon be destroyed, or probably is by now. Well done.
I grew up not 2 kms from here. Coming back I am terribly confused when driving around, because of what this mine has done to the town and the roads. It has gobbled up a lot of neighborhoods and rerouted a few roads.

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
