About: Orchard Coal Mine

The taste of a coal mine early in the morning. The smell and sounds. There’s something in the soul about it. Just think how far the industry has come over the hundreds of years only to be destroyed in the few years. It’s not safety or black lung etc etc , it’s politics. Shame.
Perfectly fine for these guys to get drunk at the mine but God forbid someone brings out a joint, that's a safety violation
No way that many coal mine jobs will ever come about
they say that ten thousand mining jobs will be created by Trump in Kentucky and twenty thousand coal mining industry jobs in West Virginia. maybe forty thousand in Illinois.
Thank you for posting this. I'm working on an Eagle Scout Project regarding the history of Puritan Mine & Coke Works in Baggaley, PA. Just gathering info and trying to immerse myself into the coal mine atmosphere.
