WNEP citing, although the coal mining industry in our area isn't booming like it once was, there are still major projects happening here. There's a lot of excitement at Blaschak Coal Corporation just outside of Mahanoy City. The large anthracite coal producer in Schuylkill County is in the midst of its largest project in the company's history.

Blaschak Coal president Greg Driscoll, said that "This region has probably billions of tons of anthracite remaining in the ground, so as long as there are good markets for this and opportunities to do so in a profitable and sustainable way, we want to continue to do that. We're always looking for the next property."

However, that next property is the mammoth coal seam which runs from the Centralia area to Mount Carmel.

Blaschak made a USD 14 million investment into this 20-year project, with the development starting in 2016. The mining aspect of the operation recently got underway.

Driscoll said that "The mammoth seam is often a seam that is requested by customers. They want the mammoth seam coal because it is known to be the highest quality, the most consistent quality of anything that's produced in Pennsylvania."
