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.

Kentucky Coal Miners Tribute HD
 
05:14
Around April 13, 1750 Dr. Thomas Walker was the first recorded person to discover and use coal in Kentucky. In 1820 the first commercial mine, known as the "McLean drift bank" opened in Kentucky, near the Green River and Paradise in Muhlenberg County; and we have been mining coal ever since. Coal has been used in Kentucky for over 250 years and probably longer if you count the native American Indians. The Kentucky Coal Heritage section is just a small part of the Kentucky Coal Education site, here you will find information related to and about Kentucky Coal through pictures, articles, and other various sources as we dig up the past.

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!!! Welcome to Muhlenberg County, my home!

Two New Coal Mines to Be Built in West Virginia and Virginia

According to coal developers, a $90 million investment will open two new mines in West Virginia and Virginia at some point in 2017. On Tuesday, Kentucky-based Ramaco Development announced that it has completed a $90 million deal with two private equity firms to build the mines. In a statement, Ramaco said the mines will extract metallurgical coal, the type used for steel production. The company's CEO Randall Atkins told The AP following the announcement that the mines will create over 400 jobs in regions that have seen unemployment numbers recently rise. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-09-06-US--New%20Coal%20Mines/id-11cab5324e9f4622bf02ec88ec6222cb http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor Thursday regarding the mining accident in Western Kentucky: Many Kentuckians awoke this morning to the sad news that one miner was killed and another is missing after a ceiling collapse in an underground coal mine in Webster County, which is in the western part of Kentucky. Right now, it is my understanding that MSHA officials are on the site, and rescue teams are working to locate the missing miner. For now, we can only hope that their efforts are successful. I ask my colleagues and the American people to keep the miners, their families, and the rescue workers in their prayers.

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

Ison Rock Ridge, VA: mining in the town of Appalachia, VA
 
04:20
America's Most Endangered Mountains - Ison Rock Ridge, VA Pledge to Help End Mountaintop Removal. Visit: www.iLoveMountains.org - - - COMMUNITY STORY - - - Just like the region that bears its name, the town of Appalachia, Virginia, is being threatened by new permits for mountaintop removal mining. Appalachia and nearby Andover are small communities in southwest Virginia. At one time these towns were nestled in the low-lying mountains of the region, but in the last decade or so mountaintop removal has destroyed areas all around them. Now they only have one mountain left. Ison Rock Ridge comes off of Black Mountain on the Virginia / Kentucky border and runs southeast toward the town of Appalachia. Its preservation is essential to the quality of life for the people in the community. Without it, residents lose an important ecosystem, and fear the destruction of their homes from landslides, as well as the contamination of their water from valley fill sediment. They also worry about disturbance from blasting and the resultant dust that often accompanys mountaintop removal mine sites. Though the federal permit for mining on the ridge was sent back to the Army Corps of Engineers by the Environmental Protection Agency for its failure to consider the cumulative environmental impact of many mountaintop removal mines in a concentrated area, residents fear that the mine may be allowed with only minor changes on the state level. According to the local environmental group Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards (SAMS), the Ison Rock Ridge mine would destroy three miles of streams and fill nine valleys with more than 11 million cubic yards of rock and dirt. To support Pete and his community contact: Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards (276) 565-1083 • www.samsva.org SAMS is committed to stopping the destruction of communities by surface coal mining and to help rebuild sustainable communities.

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.
