The mine is planning on being up and operational by June 2014, unless plans fall through. There is approximately 25 years of coal left.

you are a dumb ass if you believe that. You can not go in and open an abandoned mine after years of it being out of service.

You can if you went in and upgraded wiring, bracing, etc., right after you closed it, like they did at 24. My best friend is a retired mining engineer for Old Ben, and he says 24 could be operational in 60 days.
lol There is no Old Ben/Zeigler coal company. They went bankrupt in 2004. Your friend knows no more that I do anymore.
If would be great in a coal mine did open back up in Franklin county. We could use the jobs.

I've heard that Peabody now has the mining/ mineral rights, and M class has an interest in buying it from them...anyone else heard that?

It can be done but it would take about a year or longer to do it first you gotta pump all the water out then then everything has to be upgraded, seals, electrical, bolting, belts. Then you gotta figure equipment and plans have to be approved it takes a whole. The old montaray mine did it a few years ago up north and cline now operates it, and I heard he was looking at 21 and the old console mine also. But those are just rumors.

I'm well aware the company went bankrupt, and so is he. That didn't change the upgrades that had been made underground at 24, before they shut it down. Underground, the mine's still in good shape.
Are you talking about mine 24 or 21? Isn't there rumors that Nick Androvandi burnt 24 the the day 24 was schedule to close? I remember mine 21 had about 25 million dollars in upgrades before being deemed not worthy of opening.
