The Joller Story – Life in a Company Coal Mine and Village

The personal story of presenter Steve Runkle’s Miller Family who developed, owned, and operated the company coal mine and village of Joller.

This is a personal story of presenter Steve Runkle’s Miller Family. The Millers developed, owned, and operated the company coal mine and village of Joller, in the East Broad Top coal fields of Huntingdon County. Here he outlines the family’s early lumber business, the discovery of coal on the Joller tract, and the development of slope mines in three separate coal veins. Thirty-five years of deep mining at Joller and life in the company village are depicted. Lastly, Mr. Runkle describes Joller’s successful mine reclamation project,  including the site recovery process and mine drainage treatment techniques that protect the environment.
