      Dont forget about the local draglines at Falkirk, Coteau, and BNI, those are 100% electric driven, have been since the day they were built, coal mining in ND has been green long before being green was cool

      Don't forget the electric rope shovels, diesel over electric front end loaders and haul trucks.

      See thats all great and all, but that electricity comes directly from coal, NG, and any other fossil fuels.

      Having an electric option, does not change the amount of fuel used to create that electricity.

      I had to google rope shovel

      had no idea those old timey machines had an old timey name

      - - - Updated - - -

      or were so efficient

      guess hydraulic systems are energy wasters compared to steel rope

      those rope shovels are burned into my brain forever

      Nonsense, they run on magic electricity. The same stuff they are gonna use to power the electric cars.
