Nick, excellent find. Mr. Kuchta certainly is very knowledgeable and has a lot of interesting articles. I understand he was instrumental in the reopening and operation of the LC&N No. 9 Mine in Lansford, PA as a public mine tour as is the organization's president. Unfortunately while I have never met him myself, I believe a few people on the forum know him.
