I'm pretty sure I've seen announcements of some new mining pools for UASF but I can't really find anything on coin.dance or somewhere else about the hashing power and how many people are supporting UASF with mining. Any idea?

It's actually far more beneficial game theory-wise for miners to not signal with their hashing power till after the UASF happens. Collusion in private works to their advantage. The users are going through with the soft fork regardless so all the miners have to do is determine if they want to hash for those users or not.

Is it even possible for miners to actually mine UASF without signalling it and letting people know that they are mining it? It make some sense since no website have any charts or numbers that we could rely on.

There is some list looking like wiki page of miners supporting segwit.
I saw that in past, there were quite a lot names of companies/mining pools but you can't be sure how much that transalte to mining power. I wouldn't assume much % of overall hashing power tho.
I support segwit all the way, its mature and well tested scaling solution.

I don't think it is possible for them to mine without also signaling for it unless there are some back-door deals being made where miners are signaling it without making their support known. Which is more than unlikely considering the nature of miners to signal basically anything they're supporting.

This makes sense from a "sekrit club" perspective but it seems highly unlikely that there is some sort of collusion going on that is getting enough hashing power to signal something like UASF without it being known at least slightly.
