In some cases the states site doesn't even have the veins right i.e. the have veins listed for some southern field mines that don't even exist in the southern field. The mine that is listed as Kimmels whites vein mine isn't the mine that kimmels was working with the fancy equipment. Kimmels Whites mine is a slope formerly known as Tito just a few hundred feet towards Tower City away from there big deep mine. As far as what Kimmels big mine produced it was on the order of 26,000 +/- tons mostly in one quarter in 2008. And that is about right if you talk to the guys that were there. As far as the numbers for B&B and Orchard being funny if there off there not off by much. for mines that have around 8-12 guys underground there doing all right.
You where missing my point Mike The Numbers if anything would be on the light side By the way I told you a few weeks ago that I was using MSHA site and if I Remember when we talked last you thought B&B & Orchard numbers Production # where heavy for 8 Guys in The B&B Mine And 9 In The Orchard Mine . Anyway I don't really care what the Numbers are I am not making any money off of them
