Welcome to the Abandoned Coal Mines Website

Welcome to the Abandoned Mines Web Site. This site is a result of my 30-year endeavor in collecting mine information dating back to the 1800's. I am truly happy to now make it available via the World Wide Web. It is a fairly complete mine list for the following counties in Ohio and Pennsylvania: Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana, Holmes, Beaver, Mercer, and Lawrence.

If you know about any mines that are not on this web site or have any mine maps that I do not have please contact me  at agharris@ysu.edu so that I can add them. 

Correction: Mahoning and Trumbull map data sheets have a 'UTM' listing. The number is not UTM but State Data Plane (SDP). Columbiana County has been corrected.

Better quality copies of any mine map can be aquired through the Ohio Geologic Survey. In addition you can make direct requests to me on my Contact page.

Valuable information regarding mine information can also be obtained by referencing the Links page of this website.
