The Underground Miners

The Underground Miners

Welcome to the official site for abandoned coal mine research! This is where you can not only learn about mining, but see pictures as well. You’ll find navigation along the light blue navigation strip. The sections are:

What’s New – Here you can find out what the latest updates to the site are.

Mine Images – There are 11 categories in this section, ranging from videos to tours to specific mines to old black and white images. I was content to explore this section for an entire hour. This is a very unique look into the world of these mines.

Mine Forums – Here you can chat with people about mining, mines and even restoring old equipment. There are lots of topics to choose from too. You will need to register to post as well. To do so, click the registration link near the top of page. Agree to the terms and conditions and then fill out the required form. When you’re done, click the Submit button. You should be good to go then and you can start posting right away!

Projects – Here you can check out the projects that the team has worked on. These sections are filled to the brim with interesting information, photos and even videos. Check out the Mine Equipment Projects and you will see real equipment being restored. Or, check out The Restoration of the Gravity Slope Buildings or maybe the research projects. Either way, there’s something up everyone’s alley here. There’s so much great information in this area.

Safety – This is where you can learn about the safety measures that the team takes when exploring these mines. There are pictures of examples and links to other stories mentioned on the safety page that are interesting to check out as well.

Maps – In this section, you will find maps of three locations and they are: Eddy Tunnel Maps, Gravity Slope Maps and North Mahanoy Colliery Maps. I think the maps give you a very interesting perspective on the mines they are for and mines in general.

Subsidences – Here you will learn the definition of a subsidence, as well as, how it is caused. There are five subsidence pages that are filled with photos and text describing what the pictures are. This is a very interesting section and it should not be missed.

UGM Team – Here you can read the biographies of miners. There are 11 in all. You can also check out the About the UGM Team section and learn about why the site exists and who maintains it. You can also read the thank you section where the site authors thank their friends and contributors.

Give it a look see today!
