If you look at Google's road map, you can see the land is "pock marked" with bodies of water. This indicates the land has been strip mined. Panning the map reveals a line of pock marked land runs along a line from Providence, KY, through Maddisonville and Central City to Morgantown. So the Mine Quest map appears to be accurate and the Heartland map appears to be wrong.
