 Post subject: Campbell's Ledge Mining Operation
PostPosted: Tue Dec 03, 2013 12:19 pm 
I spent the past weekend exploring the mining remnants at Campbell's ledge. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the name of this operation? Many mine openings exist with most of them bat gated. Someone broke the gate to a slope that was easily a 45 degree angle. This mine also had a large corrugated pipe at the head frame. Any idea what its purpose was?

That tube is an overcast. It's for ventilation. It was mined by the lehigh valley coal company. Later there several independent family run small mines up there......
