I am new to this forum, and I am not sure what is meant by "hard rock" mining. (Give me time). In any case I live in Pennsylvania and on my own, my sister's, and my cousin's adjoining 600 acres in northern Bedford County are the remains of an extensive iron mining operation that began about 1884 and continued for some decades. I assume that what stopped it was the cheaper ore from the Great Lakes area. Since the Oppeneheimers abandoned it around 1920, it has remained undisturbed.
Is there a good history of iron mining in Pennsylvania?
