Georgetown Quadrangle


Mining in the Georgetown Quadrangle

The Herrin Coal was mined in the Georgetown Quadrangle, generally averaging between 5.5 and 6.0 feet thick. The roof was most often the Energy Shale, a silty gray shale that had layers of siltstone, and required conscientious attention to keep up. Rolls and faults were present in most of the mines as well. Mining took place between 1904 and 1947, until the Riola Mine (mine index 1018) opened in 1996. Mining appears to have ceased in the area with the closing of Vermilion Grove Mine (mine index 1026).
