Previous mined-out area maps of the area included three mines. Subsequent research showed that all three mines were labeled with names of operators who worked one single mine, which ceased operation in 1941. The Cosmo Mine began operation in 1923 as Reynolds Coal Company. Confusion was initially caused by the very poor information on the Reynolds 1927 map, which had no ground surface information incorporated into the map, other than the 1/4-1/4 section written. In the past, the small map was placed at the center of the 40-acre area, and the point associated with that location has been deleted. Lebeter & Reynolds were succeeded by J. S. Williamson, and the 1933 map of Williamson Mine has an addition to the legend stating that ownership had changed to Cosmo Coal Corporation, with a later survey date (1941). An escape shaft was shown on the eastern side of the mine, and this was determined to be the old hoist shaft of Reynolds Mine with the aid of undated and un-attributed field notes. On the 1950 minedout area map, two rounded outlines appeared in 16-T14N-R7W, both labeled “Williamson Mine”. The outlines look like the map for the Federal Land Bank report, but with the mines shifted two miles east from Section 18 (into 16-T14N-R7W). As no field notes or mine notes verify a mine in Section 16, those two outlines were deleted.
