Much more could be said about the coal industry and its interaction with the mountain. I understand the strip mining controversy was huge and even Bill Clinton was involved. --Zdv 06:10, 14 Sep 2004 (UTC)
I changed the statement "It is almost 1,000 feet taller than any other mountain in Kentucky" to "It is about 500 feet taller than any other mountain in Kentucky", since Little Black Mountain is 3640 ft and Cumberland Mountain is 3513 ft. Despite the similar name, Little Black Mountain is definitely a separate mountain from Black. In the Appalachians 500 ft of prominence would normally be enough for a mountain to be considered a separate mtn and not a subpeak. Little Black has over 1200ft of prominence. 18:36, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
