"The Rochester and Pittsburgh Coal and Iron Company opened the Walston mine in 1882 and the Adrian mine in 1884," Sharpe said, adding that the Walston mines had an average daily production of 3,000 tons of coal per day. Sharpe said there were two lines of coke ovens — totaling 700 — which produced 50 railroad cars of coke per day. She said it was during this time that Walston and Adrian grew from nowhere. "There were 700 ovens in Walston, and Adrian had 440," Sharpe said, adding that changing coal into coke made it easier to ship and fill 100 railroad cars per day. Southern Jefferson County was becoming known world wide because of its large amount of coke ovens, she said. Sharpe said Walston had the longest unbroken string of coke ovens in the world. "There were 432 ovens forming a line 1-1/4 miles in length," Sharpe said. According to a map of Clayville (West End of Punxsy), there were coke ovens also snaking down Sawmill Run, which was a perfect location for what the industry would need, she said. Sharpe said before the coke could be produced, the owners needed a way to transport it, which is how the railroad grew throughout the region. - See more at: http://www.punxsutawneyspirit.com/content/coal-coke-histories-run-deep-punxsy-surrounding-areas#sthash.Tgk1pXbr.dpuf

Join me as we explore the Exhibition Coal Mine! This authentic restoration of a coal town and mine will give you a glimpse into the day-to-day life of a coal miner during the early 1900’s. We’ll discover the coal camp buildings and there significance, learn about the history of WV coal mining in the museum, and take a trip 1500 feet underground on man cars through the Phillips Family Mine. Then I’ll speculate as to how coal mining will fit into the gameplay of Fallout 76!

The West Virginia cultural museum hosted a panel on the importance of Blair Mountain to Union and Coal aficionados yesterday. During the "official" panel there was hardly a mention of the current efforts of out of state coal mining companies to destroy this piece of history and the psychological & economic impact it could have as a tourist attraction. Best quote of the afternoon: In the school system West Virginia history is Morgan Morgan lived in a tree and fought Indians, the civil war and that's the end of it... never a mention of the largest insurrection our country has seen. They don't want to teach kids the power of organizing. Blair Mountain use to be on the national registry of historic places and therefore protected from strip mining. Legally, locals may object to the historic designation if they choose. The effort to rustle up objectors netted 2 zombies who now live peacefully in the heart of a millionaire coal exec somewhere.

This may be the only mine in the Little North Santiam Mining District that has not been gated or sealed shut. The reason it hasn't been gated is because this mine is extremely difficult to find as it lies thousands of feet up Elkhorn Mountain. Finding this mine was treacherous but also very fun since none of the trails or adits are marked on current maps. This mine has 1000+ feet of horizontal workings but we were only able to make it through a few hundred due to safety concerns. I'll revisit this mine later with a gas monitor so I can safely explore the remaining tunnel.

Sasco, or the Southern Arizona Smelting Company, was a milling town that processed ore from the surrounding mines from 1907 to 1921. The town has since been abandoned and run down by paintballers and shooters. There is still a lot of standing buildings to explore. Read more about the history of Sasco here: http://azoffroad.net/sasco/4591867402 Watch a video of how to get here (reverse of this): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpebYCYxCVw

Today, hundreds of us will march onto a strip mine in West Virginia and shut it down. Concerned community members and activists are preparing to take nonviolent direct action to do what the politicians, the regulators and the courts have been unwilling to do: to defend the land and the people; to stop strip mining. http://RampsCampaign.org If you would like to support the RAMPS Campaign, please consider donating at http://bit.ly/mm-donate
