Pennsylvania has two types of mines in the state. Surface mines also known as strip mines are large areas that become pits. This occurs when dirt and rock are removed to expose minerals. Underground mines are mines that have large tunnels. These tunnels are used to go deep into the earth to reach minerals otherwise out of reach from surface mining. The most common type of underground mine is a room and pillar. Retreat mining is also common in today’s mining production. The last major type of underground mining is longwall mining. Haulage systems are used to transport the minerals from the ground to the surface. Mining requires lots of heavy equipment. This type of equipment is used to drill, dig, extract and transport the minerals from the site to production. Pennsylvania has many inactive and active mines. Although coal is a major product produced in the state, other minerals are important as well. Here are a few of the active mines in the state today,

Maryland is a small state with rolling hills and flat grasslands. Located on the Atlantic coast, the weather is usually mild, making Maryland freight shipping rates affordable. The Port of Baltimore is an important freight shipping hub for the Midwest, and a large volume of Maryland freight moves by rail and by shipping canal. Air freight can also be accomplished at a reasonable rate, though trucking, rail, and canal shipping are usually less expensive. LTL freight shipping is easy to find for low prices due to the high volume of goods moving through Maryland. Shipping goods out of the state is usually less expensive than shipping goods into Maryland.
