A History of Coal's Extraordinary Impact on Human Civilization (2003)
 
01:01:10
The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States "colliery" has historically been used to describe a coal mine operation, but the word today is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, jacks and shearers The American share of world coal production remained steady at about 20 percent from 1980 to 2005, at about 1 billion short tons per year. The United States was ranked as the 2nd coal producing country in the world in 2010, and possesses the largest coal reserves in the world. In 2008 then-President George W. Bush stated that coal was the most reliable source of electricity.[61] However, in 2011 President Barack Obama said that the US should rely more on "clean" sources of energy that emit lower or no carbon dioxide pollution.[62] As of 2013, while domestic coal consumption for electric power was being displaced by natural gas, exports were increasing. US coal production increasingly comes from strip mines in the western United States, such as from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana.[63] Coal has come under continued price pressure from natural gas and renewable energy sources, which has resulted in a rapid decline of coal in the U.S. and several notable bankruptcies including Peabody Energy. On April 13, 2016 it reported, its revenue tumbled 17 percent as coal price fell and lost 2 billion dollars on the previous year.[64] It then filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy on April 13, 2016.[64] The Harvard Business Review discussed retraining coal workers for solar photovoltaic employment because of the rapid rise in U.S. solar jobs.[65] A recent study indicated that this was technically possible and would account for only 5% of the industrial revenue from a single year to provide coal workers with job security in the energy industry as whole. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining

Black Mountain, KY : the story of Benham and Lynch
 
04:14
America's Most Endangered Mountains - Benham and Lynch KY on Black Mountain Pledge to Help End Mountaintop Removal. Visit: www.iLoveMountains.org - - - COMMUNITY STORY - - - Benham and Lynch are nestled in Harlan County at the foot of Black Maintain, Kentucky's highest peak. Established as "coal camps" in 1911 and 1917 respectively, they were towns built to support the coal mining operations of two corporations: the Wisconsin Steel division of International Harvester and the US Coal and Coke Company. (Coal camps were towns where every building, home, school, and store was owned by a company. They typically paid the workers in script that could only be used at the company store.) Benham and Lynch were "captive" mines. Neither had to rely on the fluctuations of the coal market to sell the coal they mined. To maintain a stable workforce, these coal companies provided a better quality of life than found in most coal camps. For example, by the 1940s, approximately one-third of the graduates of Benham High School had completed at least one year of college. In 1945, Lynch's population of 10,000 was reportedly the world's largest coal camp. Today, with one-third of the residents being African-American and many others tracing their ancestry to Eastern Europe and Italy, Lynch is one of the most diverse communities in Appalachian Kentucky. As the years passed, the coal companies sold their property in the towns to town residents, but kept ownership of the surrounding mountains (and the coal in them). As larger machines were invented, coal mining methods transitioned from underground tunneling to mountaintop removal. In the past two decades, Harlan County residents have joined together to protect the upper parts of Black Mountain from logging and mountaintop removal. During the most recent event in 2007, local residents drew on the expertise of local United Mine Workers of America members, the Lynch City Council, Kentuckians For The Commonwealth and the Kentucky Resource Council to successfully prevent coal mining activities under the Lynch water system. Currently, the residents of Benham and Lynch are concerned about a proposed 692 acre strip mine threatening the towns and their efforts to develop cultural heritage tourism. Many are also working to develop renewable energy resources and are looking at ways to reduce their energy consumption. To support Carl and his community contact: Kentuckians for the Commonwealth (606) 878-2161 • www.kftc.org KFTC works with people to organize in their home communities across Kentucky, helping everyday community members become extraordinary community leaders.

How Coal Is Mined and Refined - Top Coal Mining Spots in the World - Documentaries. Welcome to DOCUMENTARIES - home of the best documentary movies and documentary films. Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States, "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers.

Peabody Coal Company - Sinclair Surface Mine
 
10:00
10 minutes of video from a video made by one of the miners at the mine that is over 1 hour long. John Prine sang about this mine in the song "Paradise" and the shovel that worked there. At the time, it was the World's Largest Shovel, but was only that for a couple of years after it's construction. This mine served as a mine mouth for the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) Paradise Fossil Plant next door. It was all located outside Central City, Kentucky in Muhlenberg County along the Green River of Western Kentucky. At one time, no place in the world produced more coal than Muhlenberg County but those days are long gone. This was one of two world record holding shovels located in the county at the time this video was shot (early 1980's). The largest shovel on here is the Bucyrus Erie 3850-B and is the shovel that was famously buried after finishing its work at this mine. I had a Grandfather and an Aunt that worked at this mine and retired from there. My aunt actually ran the large BE 3850-B shovel from time to time. The bucket on the 3850-B is 115 cubic yards in size. Big enough for two pickup trucks to park in easily with room to move around them! This was the original home of the giants in coal mining!!!

A century ago, southern Iowa was home to hundreds of surface coal mines. As the coal boom died so did the companies that mined for it, leaving those mines abandoned and open to the elements. Today, decades after the industry died, efforts slowly continue to clean up the deserted mines and reclaim the ground that was once rich with coal.

Bucyrus Erie 3850-B Power Shovel (Peabody Coal Co. - Sinclair Surface Mine) "Big Hog"
 
10:01
Peabody Coal Company ordered this machine for one purpose and one purpose only, the Tennessee Valley Authority. It was built to supply the (at the time) brand new TVA Paradise Fossil Plant and its 3 MASSIVE coal hungry units. TVA and Paradise Fossil Plant still buy Muhlenberg County coal and Peabody coal to this day! This video just shows the old girl going through some simple cycles in the pit. You do catch a few views of some pit activity and stuff as well! Enjoy. Some interesting facts about this machine my Grandfather & Aunt used to work on: -Boom Length: 215 feet -Overall Height: 220 feet -Bucket Capacity: 115 cubic yards -Crawler Size: 40 ft. long by 7.6 ft. wide -Crawler Height: 10 feet -Overall Weight: 22 Million lbs. -Date Started: 1962 -Date Retired:1987 (roughly) -Location: Outside Central City/Drakesboro in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky (Western Kentucky) **When this shovel was built, it was easily considered the "World's Largest Machine/Shovel" ever built. It held that title for a relatively short time though unfortunately. This machine was left somewhat intact, but higher portions were cut off of it when it walked into a hole that it dug for itself. After everything was trimmed off, the Sinclair BE 1260-W Dragline filled the dirt in around the machine and it was literally buried close to the TVA power plant on Peabody Property. That property is now owned by the US Government and trespassing is strictly forbidden. To this day, the legendary "Big Hog" still resides under a deep number of feet of dirt in Muhlenberg County. The Big Hog was featured in an article in the January 1963 "Science and Mechanics" Magazine. An artistic rendering of this machine graced that issues cover. I'll never forget seeing this machine parked in its own grave that it dug, just waiting for the dirt and cutters torch. I had a grandfather and an aunt that worked around and on this shovel during its life. It will always be part of my family just like the Marion 5960 Shovel across the county at River Queen Mine!

Anthracite Coal Mining circa 1920

Earth Sciences, mining, oil, etc. playlist:: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthracite Anthracite... is a hard, compact variety of mineral coal that has a high luster. It has the highest carbon content, the fewest impurities, and the highest calorific content of all types of coals, which also include bituminous coal and lignite. Anthracite is the most metamorphosed type of coal (but still represents low-grade metamorphism), in which the carbon content is between 92.1% and 98%... Anthracite ignites with difficulty and burns with a short, blue, and smokeless flame. Anthracite is categorized into standard grade, which is used mainly in power generation, and high grade (HG) and ultra high grade (UHG), the principal uses of which are in the metallurgy sector. Anthracite accounts for about 1% of global coal reserves, and is mined in only a few countries around the world. China accounts for the lion's share of production; other producers are Russia, Ukraine, North Korea, Vietnam, the UK, Australia and the US. Total production in 2010 was 670 million tons... Terminology Other terms which refer to anthracite are black coal, hard coal, stone coal (not to be confused with the German Steinkohle or Dutch steenkool which are broader terms meaning all varieties of coal of a stonelike hardness and appearance, like bituminous coal and often anthracite as well, as opposed to lignite, which is softer), blind coal (in Scotland), Kilkenny coal (in Ireland), crow coal (or craw coal from its shiny black appearance), and black diamond. "Blue Coal" is the term for a once-popular and trademarked brand... Anthracite is similar in appearance to the mineraloid jet and is sometimes used as a jet imitation. Anthracite differs from ordinary bituminous coal by its greater hardness, its higher relative density of 1.3--1.4, and lustre, which is often semi-metallic with a mildly brown reflection. It contains a high percentage of fixed carbon and a low percentage of volatile matter... The moisture content of fresh-mined anthracite generally is less than 15 percent. The heat content of anthracite ranges from 22 to 28 million Btu per short ton (26 to 33 MJ/kg) on a moist, mineral-matter-free basis... Anthracite may be considered to be a transition stage between ordinary bituminous and graphite, produced by the more or less complete elimination of the volatile constituents of the former... History of mining and use In southwest Wales, anthracite has been burned as a domestic fuel since at least medieval times. It was mined near Saundersfoot. In the United States, anthracite coal history began in 1790 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, with the discovery of coal made by the hunter Necho Allen in what is now known as the Coal Region... By 1795, an anthracite-fired iron furnace had been built on the Schuylkill River... In spring 1808, John and Abijah Smith shipped the first commercially mined load of anthracite down the Susquehanna River from Plymouth, Pennsylvania, marking the birth of commercial anthracite mining in the United States. From that first mine, production rose to an all-time high of over 100 million tons in 1917. From the late 19th century until the 1950s, anthracite was the most popular fuel for heating homes and other buildings in the northern United States... Many large public buildings, such as schools, were heated with anthracite-burning furnaces through the 1980s... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery... Coal mining has had a lot of developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyor, jacks and shearers...

Noonan Coal Mine Documentary "Hidden Treasure"
 
50:33
Somehow I got this DVD during Noonan's Centennial back in 2007. It is very informative about the old Noonan Coal Mines, their history and the WMA there now, etc. This is information that I believe, needs to be shared. It was an important part of the town where my mother was born and my grandparents lived. Grandpa Dhuyvetter worked in one of those underground mines when he first got here from Belgium. He emigrated from Belgium after World War I. Anyway, he earned enough money that way to buy some land and get married to my grandmother, Urbanie Snauwaert. They had one daughter, Bertha, my mother. Urbanie and her parent were also from Belgium. My great grandmother, Marie Snaewaert is buried in St Luk'e Cemetery here. My great grandfather, Gustav re-married and went back to Belgium My grandfather's brother, Morris also came here from Belgium and had "lots" of children, many of them and their offspring, still live in North Dakota. The farm is still in the family and is located four miles south of Noonan. I have come up to Noonan my whole life. I remember, as a kid, watching the coal strip mine operations. I even remember dumping the drag line on occasion. This area has a lot of fond memories for me. I moved here when I retired in 2001 and have never regretted it. I married Meredith back in 2002 and she moved up here with me. The bumper sticker on my car reads, "You are not lost, you are in Noonan, North Dakota. You are way beyond lost!" "Noonan isn't the end of the world here, but we do have a viewing area." I do a lot of photography up here, and title my work "Beauty on the Northern Plains," "North Dakota: Horizon to Horizon," and "North Dakota: Freezin' is the Season." I have two more art exhibitions coming up this year, celebrating the NEA (National Endowment of the Arts) and NDCA's (ND Council on the Arts) 50th Anniversary. I will be one of the 50 "Invited Artists" for those two events. I also one of the "Invited Artists" who exhibited at the North Dakota 150th Centennial back in 2014. If you are interested in more history of North Dakota that is a little more current, try the book "Sundogs and Sunflowers: Folklore and Folk Art on the Northern Great Plains." The sundog photograph on the cover is one of mine, plus others on the inside. I want to thank my son-in-law, Garrett for his efforts to make the DVD into a MP4 video I can share. This video probably has a pretty limited audience, though! I found no copyright statement on the video and believe it to be public domain.
