Thursday's Star-Ledger had a nice photo of the Scrub Oak mine from July 1946. They mistakenly located it in Dover, but it's a great picture anyway. It shows most (if not all) the buildings, looking from SW to NE (up the hill). The power lines ran across the crest of Iron Mountain, even then.
Happy Exploring,
Rob

Wow, how did I miss this!? I found it interesting that you referred to it as the Scrub Oak Mine (its original name) as opposed to Scrub Oaks (with an "s"). Is this how the article referred to the mine? Was there an article about the mine or just a photo for historical reference? I would like to take a look. :shock:

I would love to read that article and check out the old photo. Any good information in there?

01/12/06 - Posted from the Daily Record newsroom
Mine Hill water project gets boost
$500,000 to help launch study of mines for water storage

Follow link to read article:
http://www.dailyrecord.com/apps/pbcs.dl ... 5/ARCHIVES

I also found this article in the Daily Record today and it says the following:

MORRIS WATER

Don't use mine shafts for storage

To the Editor:
Storing water in old mine shafts is an oxymoron. Trace quantities of heavy metals naturally occur and are costly to remove from the stored water (e.g.; lead is naturally occurring in the Scrub Oaks Mine area).

The State of Colorado is drowning in the overflow of water from Rocky Mountain mines containing heavy metals.

The state and the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority need to coordinate with Colorado immediately.

That's what I found and rewrote it word for word. Any comments?
