Upon a visual inspection of the area, an operational coal mine is revealed approximately 4 miles from the shallow earthquakes epicenter.

The earthquake, and this coal mine could be related.

Methane seepage. Magma rising.  The Craton is being displaced at multiple other volcanic areas, resulting in several shallow earthquakes at dormant volcanoes in Arizona, and Nevada.

After the other “volcanic” related earthquakes over the past 72 hours, this earthquake near an operational coal mine located directly upon the Western edge of the craton is not surprising.

See my post made a few hours ago for details on the volcanic related earthquakes happening in the United States recently.
