Nobody in his right mind would go down into the pit by choice, it's a graveyard filled with the spirits of testosterone. Buried alive ? No thanks !
Going going gone
Is that long wall coal mine ?
diesel machinery and no rock dust...YES!
Carl Horn worked 41 years in the mines
After 8 yrs with the war on coal, did anyone think of another job ? I say this because when the Railroad brought in machines to replace the men, my father was devastated. It did not matter that he was a hard worker and a strong man. That was why he pushed us to go through high school . I pray for the miners and their families and God Bless.
I heard that ten to twenty thousand coal mining jobs will be created by Trump in Kentucky and West Virginia. maybe forty thousand in Illinois.
I hate link n lock crib.

fct's don't stop
best part of longwall mining is recovery , loved every minute of it. Too many cowboys in the game now only watch out for themselves and not their mates. To those still in mining stay safe and look after your mates and your selves
put your glasses on while we do this video please ? who is the wanker who said that and more so who is the cockhead playing with high pressure fluid and not wearing glasses
Beautiful conditions.. I run scoop hauling/loading/setting shields and I'd kill for conditions like that!!! Btw, all those guys standing in the red area while he's setting the first shield, that's a BIG no-no!!!
Aussie coal seams are huge. I worked in Bolsover Colliery in the UKs Derbyshire coalfield.You had to bend to travel down our tallest seam (Tupton). but the 3/4 seam was only 2'9" so the shearer driver and chock men would be crawling on hands and knees at best. Usually though, due to the amount of roof spillage in the chock race you could only get through the face by pulling yourself through on your belly, commando style.
Oh I have A comment . I was laid off from the only job I have ever had that I actually enjoyed . The coal mines in southwest Virginia are the safest place in the world . It's A dangerous job do not get me wrong . I only worked for A few years  underground but the time I was underground I always felt safe . The only reason that I felt safe was the people . The best people I have ever met in my life . Hardest working , most intelligent , down to earth people you would ever meet . The mines that have been shut down in this area have devastated the economy . They just shut down A whole hospital In Lee county . The effects are on our  jobs . Now there are a few large mines still open for NOW . But all of that coal goes to China , to support the steel industry that left the rust belt behind . I worked my butt off to get the best job of my life and then politicians threw it away for Fracking . I mean come on have you even looked into what kind of chemicals they are pumping into our ground water . These people do not care . They make their millions , billions and move to another country  leaving  us with out any jobs . Were  drinking hydrochloric acid ...THEY....... Then say " Well it's good for the environment " ......are you freaking kidding me .
Please people reading this spend a few moments of your time and look into fracking
They say coal is bad ........it's not the environment they care about it's their buddies bank accounts  that change the  policies in this country .  Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely  .....................GodSpeed ......................
