Description

As you ride through Greene County’s rolling farmland near Kirby, you would never know you are in a vast industrial site. But, as you round the bend, spread before you is the sprawling RAG Cumberland Mining Company. Outward evidence of long-wall mining with underground corridors stretching miles beneath the surface, this facility processes 1,600 tons of coal per hour. The coal then is shipped via RAG Cumberland rail lines to company dock facilities on the Monongahela River, where it is loaded onto barges.
