Bailey Mine: is owned by Consol Energy, Inc. and is located in northwestern Greene County in Richhill and Gray Townships and crosses into Washington County. Coal is mined from the Pittsburgh Seam using two longwall systems and seven continuous mining machines. Continuous mining machines allow the coal to be mined in a continuous operation where one machine rips coal from the face and loads it directly into a hauling unit. Coal is transported to the surface and then processed in the Bailey Central Preparation Plant. Among the largest underground coal mines in the United States, Bailey produced 11.1 million tons of coal in 2005. (Source: County Comprehensive Plan, Ch 12, p 12-10)
