I remember that forum ,it was outdated years ago when I first looked at it. Not sure what they were running but it must have been an unpopular one and became out of date. Once they stop developement it only takes one exploit and it's finished. The more popular ones at least can usually be converted to another brand.

It is located in Coal Township PA Near a mining patch town called Bear Valley on private property owned by Reading

It is in a relatively baron are of strip mined land and is hard to just head back and find it because of the steep cliffs and regrowth in the area, it's a rather intimidating landscape but if you found someone who knows where its at, it is very accessible and you can apply for a free permit to access the grounds on the Reading Coal Homepage .

Several Times a year groups of geology students come and study the formation

Maybe one of the members of
Abandoned Mine Research, Inc.
Might have some GPS coordinates for it
