PA Longwall Mining Information!


No one deserves to have their home and property destroyed by mining for dirty fuels. 

Unfortunately that happens here in Pennsylvania, where we’re one of only a few states which allow an extreme form of coal mining known as longwall mining. Unlike traditional mining methods that leave pillars of coal to hold up the ground above, longwall mining removes all the coal, and causes the ground above to collapse. The collapsed ground can destroy buildings and property, and permanently damage streams and other surface features.
