Summary:

Coal is mined from the Pittsburgh Number 8 coal seam.

The mining conditions in the Pittsburgh No. 8 seam in general are good and great for longwall mining. The seam height averages 6 ft and the mines routinely encounter a 1 ft split [binder] near the roof with a rider seam that gives the entries an additional 2 feet of headroom.
