Original Caption: Water in a Continuous Spray Is Used Along the Face of the Long Wall When the Coal Machine Is in Operation to Cut Down on the Amount of Airborne Dust. The Machine's Teeth Rake the Coal Onto a Conveyor Belt Which Moves It for Transport Out of the Mine. Long Wall Mining Is Relatively New and More Costly, But Allows About Twice as Much Coal to Be Taken From a Mine. This Is Virginia-Pocahontas Coal Company Mine #3 near Richlands, Virginia 04/1974
