thought it would be good to share decent websites relevant to coal mine exploration or any thing else that's relevant.

online historic maps of PA geology:

http://www.libraries.psu.edu/emsl/guides/X.html

also, my favorite historic map site:

http://historical.maptech.com/

you guys have any interesting links?

Hey!

John got me looking around. How about this one:

http://apps.libraries.psu.edu/minemap/

I believe there should be a way to convert from UTM to some kind of GPS. Looks like Schuylkill county has lots of entries.

Click the link to the Appalchian Region, then the click the Quick Jump field and go to the National Mine Map Repository. You can search it by State and County.
