Has Anyone Had A Coal Company Offer You Money So They Can Mine Before The 6 Month Waiting Period?

Amfire coal company in Cambria county pa. made me an offer but as time got closer to the pre mining inspection they withdrew their offer. Are they offering money under the pretense of mining early so they do not have to pay for the pre-mining survey and limit their liability if the house is damaged by the mining operation?
