Let's hope not. just what we need, another coal mines where the walmart was suppose to be!! hate this darn county and all that is running it. raleigh county would shut it's door if it wasn't for wyoming county and they won't even clear the snow off the road for us to get there. they think we are pitiful.

So you're telling me you'd rather see a walmart that employs 150 people at minimum wage than a coal mines and tipple that could employ hundreds???You really have your priorities screwed up!!!

Yes this is true! They are clear cutting the site right now. Should have mines open by middle of spring!

just road by there and havent seen them clear cutting anything to build anything anywhere. Those old mines that are there don't have much left in them from the old days except for water. Not enough there to build a load out or another temple like there use to be. Maybe a punch ine to run a year or two at best and that all depends on how much water is still there.

There as been a notice in the beckley paper that a company by the name of Carbon has filed for disturbance of approx. 69 acres to mine the area at maben with 2 coal haulage roads. i personally have seen log trucks coming out on the straight away at Maben (off the old slate dump). railroad says there is a possibility of a loadout.

I wonder what will happen to the old slate dump? because the reaon it hasnt been reclaimed is because it is still burning deep inside of it.

Also are we sure the 69 acres has nothing to do with the new highway? They are letting a company do mountain top removal so they can clear the mountain away. Company gets the coal and state doesnt have to pay to have land removed to build the road so a win win situation there.

Before I forget has anyone heard anything else about a mines going in above the old horse stables on the other side of the mountain? Were the Birchfields use to live? Or have those plans fell through?

The mine at Maben is going in now, Investec Bank Plc and others bought out Bob Worley's portion of those leases, the company is called Carbon Resources and the Mine will be Maben # 1 mine.
Joe Valis is the President and Bill West is Sec., there is roughly 30 million tons of recoverable coal in the pocy 3 seam.Should start in the Spring.

Were is the portal going to be? above stables or down at the old mine tipple?

They may make a load out for trucks btu I dont see a mines that small or the rail road either one building the tracks back or a bridge to cross the creek for something this small.

does anyone know what the name of the old mine or mining company that ran the old mine? I am looking for some history on this old mine, such as when it opened, who owned it, when it closed and why. Any old pictures would be great!

If anyone could share any information, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
