Willeys Quadrangle


Mining in the Willeys Quadrangle

Only one mine is known to have operated in this quadrangle. The Stonington Coal Company started mining in 1905 in the Herrin coal seam, at a depth of 460 feet. The Herrin coal, which averaged 7 feet in thickness, proved a good seam to work. In 1915, the mine was bought by Peabody Coal Company to become their Peabody No. 21 Mine, and it operated until 1924.
