Pekin Quadrangle


Mining in the Pekin Quadrangle

The unlocated mines at the back of this report show that a great deal of mining took place in this area, mining for which no maps are to be found. Two large areas, one near Lamarsh Creek and one near Hollis, have been designated “general area of mining”. It is believed some of the earliest mining in this quadrangle took place in these locations.

Most mines operated in the Springfield Coal, but at least one mine also went deeper and mined the Colchester Coal, the Orchard Mine of the Third Vein Coal Company (mine index 0828).
