About: The Sebastian Coal Mine Tour (Hartford, Arkansas)

Ole tour guide Doug !
Why does no one mine for Arkansas' anthracite and sell it for house coal?
This was a good educational tour for these kids. My company installed all of the metal roofing and siding on their prep plant and the covers on the conveyor.
Looks like this would have been a fun field trip when I was in school.
