Longwall Effects  


  Longwall mining damage image of Country Mile Farm. This image shows Jeremy Parker with Dirt Designs, Inc., a coal company contractor, is putting a temporary warning fence around these serious subsidence holes created from mining several years ago. An ODNR-DMR field man observed these and said they were from the collapse of an underground road (gate) that went between two panels of the longwall. This is the kind of proposed gate road that was described in OVCC's testimony for Dysart Woods that “Would Never cave in”. Two of these have caved in under Country Mile Farm property in the last year.
