We even skirted around a gold mine at one point, on the right is the slag pile.

Top photo, the silos are rail load out facilities for the coal mine. The little tan box in the foreground is a coalbed methane well aka natural gas. In the lower photo, the "slag pile" is overburden from a coal mine piled up along the road for a privacy fence. -David
