Horizons – Summer 2000

CHRS, Inc. is pleased to announce the February 2000 release of the video documentary Silver Cinders: The Legacy of Coal and Coke in Southwestern Pennsylvania. This hour-long program tells the dramatic story of two famously married industries bituminous coal mining and coke production—which dominated southwestern Pennsylvania’s economic and cultural landscape for a remarkable century beginning in the mid-1800s. CHRS and Branch Valley Video Productions created the video documentary in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) to satisfy mitigation requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Production of the video was made possible through funding from the United States Department of the Interior, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM) through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation.
