Grew up in minersville, really appreciate your time and videos. Takes me back. Would like to discuss other locations with you. Ones nobody else knows about. Father was chief of police in Cass township, and even he didn't know of my discoveries til I showed him.
Looks like you're at the glenn burn it use to be a very large coal mine Google it the buildings ran all the way up the side of the mountain there was also one that the mine itself was still intact but I think they might have bulldozed over it
we should go explore some abandoned places here in Ga
