Production

Company Mine Name Date Production (tons)
F. C. Morgan Coal Company Morgan 1933-1961 4,762,825 Yearly production figures were collected from the tipple, not individual pits. Evidence indicates that most pits were mined for 1 or 2 years and then new pits were opened elsewhere. As production cannot be tied to a location, the company's total production and total area mined are shown here. Most of these pits are near Millstadt and included on the Millstadt quadrangle.
