I stopped by Little Buck Coal Company today on my way to Harrisburg to take a Civil Service exam. I was very surprised to see everything is gone except for the hoist house and timber pile.

Here are photos I took May 2010:

Another independent deep mine gone :-(

Are Harmony & Alfred Brown the only two operating, production, deep mines left?

M.T.
