Mining in the Macedonia Quadrangle
The oldest mines known on this quadrangle are known from early field notes in this area. The mines were small in size and shallow. The coal seam mined was the Womac Coal, which at the time was known as the Macoupin Coal. Recent mining has begun mining the Herrin Coal. The M-Class No. 1 Mine (mine index 1047) opened in 2010 and is mining using the longwall method.
