Lansford No. 9 Mine Expansion Tour – March 18 2023 – 10:00 AM – SOLD OUT
Take a tour with us to be the first visitors to inspect the expansion work at the No. 9 Mine, not yet seen by the public! We will meet at the mine at 10:00 AM in Lansford. We will begin with a safety and hazard training meeting and then we will make our way into the mine, inspecting the newly accessible workings. This is not on the normal tour, and as such very muddy conditions exist. Please wear adequate footwear, we recommend rubber muck boots. Also, we will be off the lighted tour so hard hats and lights will be required. A limited number of hats are available at the mine, so if you require one of theirs, please message us and let us know. All areas we will visit are inspected daily by the mine foreman and have been visited by state mine inspectors. After our inspection of the expansion work, we will walk the normal mine tour and serve you lunch consisting of hamburgers and hot dogs served by UGM grill master Mark Izak. After lunch, for those wanting to, instruction will be given on the operation of the electric mine locomotive within the mine!
Tickets are required in advance. All proceeds will benefit the No 9 Coal Mine &Museum, and the Underground Miners.
