    Do the miners migrate from other areas to work?

    The old coal mining areas have nothing left to offer. Poverty is everywhere. Most of the younger generations have been leaving the area. There is no work and the environment is destroyed. The government has started the reclamation projects, but it will take many years. It's truly a beautiful region, but it has been ruined by the mines. The old mines are underground and they go for miles. Gases build up in the old mine tunnels and there are explosions and fires. It's very dangerous. The strip mines are on the surface and they have ruined the environment. The anthracite coal mines were a wonderful source of livelihood for immigrants coming from Europe in the early 1900s. The once booming mining towns are now ghost towns.

    I do believe that Jane Doe was from this area because of her physical condition and lack of medical care. She also had an unidentified piece of metal in her jaw.

    This is the condition of Sugarloaf Creek, near where Jane Doe was found.


    Sugarloaf Creek is considered to be impaired for aquatic life by acid mine drainage/pH in its upper reaches.[2] All of the acid mine drainage comes from the Oneida Number One Tunnel. The creek is one of the sources of acid mine drainage that flows into Tomhicken Creek.[4]

    Sugarloaf Creek is highly acidic due to its impairment by acid mine drainage. It has a pH of 5.0 and the concentration of alkalinity in the creek is 0 milligrams per liter. The concentration of water hardness in the creek is greater than 150 milligrams per liter.[5]

    Sugarloaf Creek experiences pollution.
