RS&W
B&B Coal Co.
D&D Coal Co.
Joliett Coal Co. (until the end of march or early april)
Little Buck Coal Co. (operating 2 slopes)
Orchard Coal Co.
Alfred Brown Coal Co. (as far as I know)
Chestnut Coal Co.
Kimmel's #1
UAE Coapcorp's Harmony Mine

Did I miss any Mike?

If not, theres the list. A whopping 10. A couple of them I'm not even sure about at the moment. Harmony is the biggest... was 38 guys when Chris and I were there - running 2 continuous miners. Joliett is the smallest. Just good 'ol Bill Reiner and his hoist operator Larry Madenford.
