Company Mine Name Date Production (tons)
Amos Tubb Tubb 1934-1936 A work map from the Coal Section files dated May 1930 has a mine symbol near this location, with a depth of 70 feet and a thickness of 1.67 feet. It is possible that Tubb operated as early as 1930 (with a higher production than shown), because the Coal Report did not list mines producing less than 1,000 tons per year for the years 1930 to1933. 721
Total Production: 721
