Moving right along here and adding to what I posted yesterday, I did some more searching. When you view an online USGS topo map you can only view a small square at a time. Searching west and a little south of the area I posted yesterday, I found a spot with lots of mines. I marked them on the map, I actually counted SEVEN of them in that small area! Anybody know what kind of mines these are? This is just east of U.S. 11 and Virginia 608 east of Raphine, VA.
