About: Exploring an Abandoned Coal Mine - Part 1
Definitely a mine not to enter! A lot of roof collapse and several areas about to. No place for kids!
I'm an experienced ex underground coal miner , you broke every underground and safety rule by even going in there . Know much about H2s , O2 , methane , floor bumps , safety boots , hard hat etc. ? This is a prime example of stupidity . But hey... you got on Youtube .. you'll be a fatality in no time !
Need meters to detect low oxygen and unsafe gasses.
good going guys you know what when i grow um im exploring mines
Yup, dummies like these guys are just begging for trouble. Maybe they should lite something to see if there's any presense of gases.
Cool video, but I have to agree with a lot of the comments. I'm from WV, mines weren't that safe when they were working. It's hard to find someone in WV that don't know someone killed in the mines. If you want to keep doing this, please invest in some safety equipment.
They knew that this mine is safe up to a point to go in from other people who go into it. Otherwise it would be very dangerous from the BlackDamp if you didn't how far the blackdamp stops from the entrance Plus he says he isn't going to go in a passage without a breather. I am assuming everyone goes to this mine and parties a little then gets out.
So many seen and hidden dangers. If you actually have seen anyone get covered up with a roof fall or a rib roll you would definitely not be doing this kinda crap. Even the season for this is very bad. Barometric pressure is a killer in itself. Guys please make this your last mine video. Seen a lot of people getting hurt and a death. Use your brain and keep your family in mind. God bless

rotting timbers deplete the oxygen in the mine.
Abandoned coal mines are death traps. From explosive gas to oxygen deprived air. I am a licensed mine foreman.
awww get your butt in there wussy
you were way to close to the side wall there for a minute. they are just as dangerous as a roof fall
They don't go back and get the pillars in this kind of conventional mining. And you can tell it's an old mine because for one, you can see where they drill to undercut and blast the fast and also THERE ARE NO ROOF BOLTS. And you passed like 100 roof falls and that is probably some of the worst top I've ever seen. You are not too bright for going in there
You boys are cheating death going in those old mines. If the black damp dont get you, a roof fall will. Only a matter of time till you end up dead in there and stay to the end of time. Not worth it.....
Well they are closing the mines up, more history gone. It helps if you keep location names off the videos. But if more people go up and explore like you do I'm glad they are closing them up, someone's going to get killed.
To paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobe, "Now there is a level of stupid I have not seen in a long time." What the hell were you thinking going into an abandoned coal mine? This isn't spelunking in a natural cave that has been around for millions of years. This is a man-made disaster waiting to happen. You've got loose top to worry about, cave-ins, black damp, methane gas, and just plain getting lost. Where is your safety equipment? You're not even wearing a hard hat. You're F'ing crazy!
You kids should stay out of the mines. They are not caves as you keep calling them, if it were safe to be in then people like me who work underground wouldn't be getting killed on a regular basis. At least do some research on mine accidents and fatalities, hard rock mine exploration is a lot safer than coal mines.Methane, black and white damp kills so y'all should get mine approved lighting and multi gas detectors that includes methane. The lighting and cameras you are using cause a ignition source and methane is highly explosive.
It's all fun and games until there's a cave in then a rock falls and squishes you like a grape with your innards popping out your eyes and ears.
Yep, we have a abandoned mine had wooden pillars went into the side of big hill, I use to go into it as a child my father warned me not to play it of course I did ,got caught whipped, afew years later it caved in. Glad he made it very clear not to mess around it. He was retired from 32 years in the military so once was plenty to stay away. I'm getting old but I still remember the belt ! About as dangerous a place as there is .
