Our Mining History

Mining techniques have changed and so did our mining. While the last full blown mining operations ended with Mr. Woods in 1964, 2002-03 dolomite exploration resulted in 2 viable quarry sites. Initial work begun in 2006 finally got completed with 2008 Reclamation Permitting with the Dept. Of Natural Resources.
