Have you been to the mines near Forksten? there appears to be an active mine or breaker near Dushore PA in Cherry Township. I saw it from the airplane one day out tooling around.

I didn't see any dtripping from what I remember but this was a long time ago.. I would say it was either not active, stripping, or they are eating culm banks up for the coal.
