Only 'pit' really moving the Valleys at the moment isn't a pit at all but the Tower opencast.

You'd think they would need coal but Tata have a habit of saying that things will come back on line and then the date comes and nothing happens. The blast furnace at Margam has been refurbished but no sign of it going online again...
