Filling a big hole

9/23/10 (Thu)

Drivers traveling on N.D. Highway 200 near Beulah may have noticed drilling rigs working in the ditches this past week. The rigs aren’t looking for oil, they are literally looking for nothing.

If the drills start bringing up black coal, the drillers know the ground is solid under their feet. If the drill suddenly brings up nothing, they know they have found what they are looking for; an abandoned mine tunnel.
