"This film documents the final days of the last mine of its kind in the United States. The New Gladstone Mine in Centerville, Iowa, was using methods and techniques apropos to forty years earlier, including the use of a pony to pull the underground coal cars. The human element predominates as the miners react to the impending closing.
