they (the breaker) pays the mine by the truckload. they dont care where it comes from. they will take 2 loads from a small mine, or a few hundred from a strip mine. they want it all. so a small mine only needs to put out a small amount because of small overhead. the breaker is competing with other ones. the breaker doesnt own the mine....... hence the names of these as independent anthracite mines. they just sell raw coal.

Is he using the rock tunnel you cut?

And a trip out isn't out of the question, but funds have been tight.
