E-M:/ url of link to WV mining area map, with relevant text

Enviro-Mich message from Doug Welker <dwelker@up.net>


The map that was too big a file to post to enviro-mich is at http://www.sagady.com/stuff/redjacketwvmines.jpg.

Here, again, is the relevant text:

The purple stippled pattern shows strip mines. Note the ringed pattern surrounding the hill whose summit is 2031 feet in the western part of the map. There is most likely valuable coal still left under that summit and above the uppermost strip mine. Removing the "country rock" (mostly sandstone and shale) above that strip mine would enable them to get to that coal more easily. Likewise, some of the lower coal seams (represented by lower strip mines) might be candidates as well.

Never underestimate the power of human greed.
