We have been to several sites in that area but times have changed & mines have bought a few of them up now. Several have also been reclaimed.

I had locations but I bet we got rid of the topo-s. Rosebud just opened a BIG mine at the former Bethlehem Steel mine. We were there before security & the completion of the new Prep plant. The smaller mines that we visited have all been reclaimed :(
