Coal Mine Description
Powhatan #6 Mine located near Alledonia, Ohio in Belmont County is the largest active underground mine in the state.
FUN FACT : Bob Murray purchased this mine from NACCO Mining Co. May 1989.  Powhatan #6 Mine Ohio Valley Coal Co. launched the Murray Energy Corporation which is now currently the  largest underground coal mine operator with 11 Longwall Faces in North America as of 2015. Powhatan #6 Mine still operates a heritage 1918 mine locomotive in daily underground mine operations to take supply trains throughout the mine. (See the pictures in the gallery)
Bob Murray and his son Rob made the decision to donate one of the original underground mine haulage locomotives in 2008 that was tucked away in old workings. The mine locomotive was built in 1918 by Baldwin Westinghouse.
