About: West virginia coal mining.little pillar action

My dad worked at piston and Elkay mining Co. For 30 yrs. Plus and we know how it is when they went on strike. Thank god for commodity cheese and pinto beans but some how they would manage to put food on the table during the strike and I love and respect my dad for all he did working underground now he is just a old man with black lung and that look in his eyes that tell a story if you know what I mean because the men that was underground for that many Yrs has that look
Would love to watch it not upside down.
You call that a roof fall? That’s nothing compared to retreating the Pittsburgh Seam 40 years ago.
Loved this type of mining
I enjoyed it But it was really hard laying on my side on my side trying to look at it sideways
This brings back memories. Nothin like the rush of a good fall.
Stumping with MRS is way better caves are bigger and badder not to mention we did it in PA we don't call the roof baby hold the phone the right way
That is a lot of pressure.
And this video sucks being vertical video
Wholly shit that was cool, worked 30 years underground all hard rock .
I certainly hope you're mother didn't see you going after a HAMMER.
I filmed this.dont like a shitty mouth well you have never been in our shoes. make a preacher cuss all day long on a pillar line

8:48 cave in occurs. How do they know that's all that's going to fall though?

Exactly what was being done in PA 1959 when the Susquehanna River came rushing in.
To the Roots!!!! Love watching the top fall.
