About: It's Like an Underground City Down Here! Coal Mine Exploration (With JPVideos)
Yay you and JP are totally awesome!!!! Love this.
The deepest I have been under rock was going thru the Mont Blanc Tunnel, going from Italy to France. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nen2Nvu-kRE&t=8s
Going in the tunnel starts at 2:44
You need walker talkies water and food and heavy metal music
Know which mine you were in but it gave a great perspective to what anthracite mining was like.
Thanks for the riveting video. My family is from shamokin My great great grandfather Conrad drumheiser caused and died along with 9 other miners in the Henry clay colliery in 1873. I don’t
Fairly dangerous due to methane. Coal mines are usually vented with fans and the walls painted to keep the gas down. Without it you could be walking into a death trap. That;s only 1 danger of many. I wouldn't recommend wandering in too deep.
bring a baggie and collect those shrooms! lol
Who ever dosent like this vidio is nuts great vary interesting glade to see you brouth gas monitar even though people still coment on it haaha you need thick skin for posting vidios
She's pretty rotten.
Rotten lungs--awesome Freebie!
Amazing find ! Wow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh by the way I think those mushrooms might be psychedelic!
This must be a very old mine because a lot of the timbering seems to all be using the old tree trunk design and especially with the Crossties under the ore cart tracks are also made of natural timber tree trunks. I've never seen that ever! I have seen a lot of the other tree trunk timbering as support in stopes and winze's, but never have a saw whole tree trunks used as cross ties under the tracks. I'd be curious to know about what year is this mine was started and ended? Awesome video though!! awesome awesome video guys!
Those timbers in between the floor and the ceiling are not for structural support, they are there in case the mine starts to collapse, the timbers will start popping and cracking letting you know to RUN LIKE HELL!!! The are hundreds of thousands if not millions of tons of earth above those timbers, they aren't holding anything. Cool video.
Those poles are not as much for structure as they are for detection of a cave in. Wooden beams can't hold the mountain back. Before they snap like toothpick the beams creak and crack providing the miners a warning of loose trap rock ceiling. The side nooks provided a place to stand away from the mules passing by.
Did you eat any mushrooms?
Reminds me of the movie Mother Lode with Charlton Heston, if you haven’t seen it, check it out, the music would have been awesome on your explore. Awesome explore and thumbs up
Foggy camera gives it a spooky look to the video!
Hope your oxygen meter works well. You couldn’t pay me to go that far into a 100 year old mine. Thanks for the video. Nothing like living it vicariously.
do those logs really hold up the ceiling?
