Millstadt Quadrangle


Mining in the Buda Quadrangle

The oldest mining took place near the eastern boundary of the quadrangle, between Buda and Wyanet. The dates of mining are uncertain, but thought to be circa 1860-1870. Although no trace of a town exists now, apparently the settlement had a post office, school, (railroad) station, two stores, and a “considerable mining village”. In the early 1930s, large mine dumps (refuse from mining) existed. It was reported that mining stopped because the railroad refused permission to mine under the tracks.
