[This listing of coal mines and coal companies has been researched and complied from various sources by Raymond A. Washlaski, Historian: newspaper articles, Pennsylvania Bureau of Mines Reports, county histories, township histories, Pennsylvania Geological Survey reports, topographical maps, personnal accounts of coal miners, etc., etc.]
Very few coal company employee records exist today.  Most Coal Company employee records have been lost or destroyed after the mines were closed. If you have mine records or know of the location of coal company employee records please let us know.

Your help is needed to preserve our coal mining heritage.

Cumberland Coal Company,
[Incorporated in Pennsylvania, approved by Gov. Martin C. Rumbaugh, April 3, 1918, and recorded in Harrisburg in Charter Book 174, on same day.  Recorded in Allegheny County, in Charter Book, Volumne 41, Page 405, April 6, 1918.  Recorded in Greene County in Book Vol. 239, Page 177, May 27, 1918.  Incorporators: L. R. Martin, E.C. McHugh, R. T. Rossell.]
[Cumberland Coal Company conveys all properties to H.C. Frick Coke Company by deed dated Nov. 30, 1940, recorded in Greene County in Deed Book Vol. 394, Page 328.  Eng File No. 7897.]

Cumberland Mine (ca.1977-    ?    ), located on the Monogahela River, 12 miles south of Waynesburg, Grays Landing, Whitely Twp., Greene Co., PA
[Cumberland Mine, in Whitely Township, Greene Co., PA, began production for U.S. Steel in 1977. In 1993, the mine was acquired by Cyprus Arnax and operated by Cyprus Cumberland Resources Corp.]
[Cumberland Mine was opened by US Steel Corp. in 1977 and sold it in 1993 to Cyprus Coal Co. I once read that US Steel got into the steam coal business with this mine, but I don't believe it. I'll bet it was met coal. I'll also guess that this was the last mine that US Steel opened in Pennsylvania, as as such was the end of an era of them opening captive mines like Dilworth, Robena, Maple Creek, Karen, etc.  from Chris DellaMea.]
[Cumberland Mine: is owned by Foundation Coal Holdings, Inc. and is located approximately 12 miles south of Waynesburg in Perry, Whiteley, and Wayne Townships and has been in operation since 1977. All of the coal at the Cumberland Mine is processed through a preparation plant before being loaded onto Foundation Coal’s owned and operated railroad for transportation to the Monongahela River dock site. At the dock site, coal is loaded into barges for transportation to river-served utilities or to other docks for subsequent rail shipment to non-river-served utilities. The mine can also ship a portion of its production via truck. Cumberland shipped 7.0 million tons of coal in 2005. As of December 31, 2005, Cumberland had an assigned reserve base of 102.3 million tons. Cumberland has approximately 611 salaried and hourly employees.]
Owners: (ca.1977-1993), U.S. Steel Corp.
