The Experimental Mine in Bruceton, PA began operations in according to the Wikipedia stub article. Popular Mechanics featured an article on the mine in [1] The aim of the Experimental Mine was originally to provide a test bed for improving mine safety, particularly as . Engineering researchers are discovering beneficial ways to use large volumes of coal combustion byproducts in the reclamation of abandoned and active Ohio surface coal mines. Tarunjit Butalia, a research scientist, leads a team that already has determined how the byproducts can be used in highway and other infrastructure rehabilitation. The story of the Ernest plant began in , when officials of the Rochester & Pittsburgh Coal & Iron Company started looking to Indiana County in search of new coal fields. In May, , the rails of the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railway reached the new town of Ernest, and the first coal was shipped the same month.

The Bureau of Mines had previously conducted early exploratory research on synthetic liquid fuels. InBureau scientists studied ways to squeeze oil from shale. In andthe Bureau had experimented with coal hydrogenation, the fundamental process that Germany's Frederick Bergius had first discovered in As coal mining moves to deeper and gassier mines, operators increasingly may remove the gas by pipe drainage prior to mining in order to decrease the amount of air needed for ventilation since achieving the air volumes required is becoming both costly (shafts, fans, stoppings, etc.) and technically difficult.
