I’ve never seen photos of this loadout before. It looks brand new. Any idea of when it was built?

I have seen the entrance many times as I have passed by on 52 heading West, but had never investigated. All the coal appears to be trucked in and then loaded into hoppers. There are a couple units for shifting cars/cuts. Does anyone have any information on where the coal that is loaded here originates? I would have thought all the coal in this area would have been long gone by this point. Any information would be appreciated.
