For purposes of History and Genealogy, we have limited this compilation to Underground Coal Mines.
Mine Type 1
Underground mines are either "shaft," "slope," or "drift" which refers to the type of opening used to remove the coal from the mine.
      In shaft mines the coal is removed through a vertical shaft.
      Slope designates mines in which the coal is removed via a sloping incline from the ground surface to the mining level. In slope mines, miners and equipment may use either the slope or a vertical shaft to get into the mine.
      A drift mine is an underground mine that is excavated where the coal outcrops in the side of a bluff or the highwall of a surface mine.
      The mine type for surface mines is "strip" because these mines are more commonly called "strip mines."
