Mine cleanups in Cook, Fawn townships among those targeted by state program

Tour-Ed Mine and Museum guide and retired coal miner Joe Berardone of New Kensington shows an antique donkey shoe during an underground tour. A state program is providing money to improve a dangerous “highwall” on the mine property.

An abandoned mine drainage treatment system meant to remove pollution from a tributary of the Loyalhanna Creek near Rector will be replaced and a highwall at the popular Tour-Ed Mine and Museum in Fawn will be made safer via a state program.
