Independent Coal Miners of Pennsylvania

Independent Coal Miners

 

I covered the Independent Coal Miners of Pennsylvania for many years, while I worked as a journalist.  The miners were honest and open and lead to great stories on their struggles with MSHA.  I added a very large gallery of some of the images I took during that time.   Take a look and see what it is like their world underground. It has been a while since I was up in coal country, but most of these mines are not in operation anymore.
