A question: in figure 2 there appears to be a rise (hill) behind the houses, is this rise constructed of previous surface mine spoils and as such, is it subject to be removed to do the hoped-for eventual reclamation of the older surface mine works?

Craig Goodwin

No, Lawson Hill Estates is not physically impacted by reclamation of the John Henry surface mine. Lawson Hill is the site of an old subsurface coal mine and site of one of the largest explosions/loss of life in our local history.
