Missouri Mining Heritage Guide

by John R. Park

Copyright 2005, Stonerose Publishing
279 pages, Softcover/Comb bound, 8.5"x5.5"

The Missouri Mining Heritage Guide provides information on 421 mining-history-related points-of-interest (mostly visitable sites), plus 110 special topics, on 279 pages. 160 photographs and 103 maps illustrate the points-of-interest.

Jerry D. Vineyard, Assistant State Geologist of Missouri (retired), writes, "John Park has written an amazing blend of mining and human history ...that makes a delightful read. Don't mistake this book for just another book about old mines.' It is far more than that. Maps show where to find fascinating places, and pictures whet one's curiosity to see them. Nothing I've ever seen brings so much mining-related information together in such a usable format."

Way too many entries, text boxes, and maps to list, but here is a sample:
Big Pump Gas Station, Room-and-Pillar vs Longwall Mining, Coal Mining in Putnam County, Mendota, Blackbird Mine, Husted Brothers Mine, Coal Mining in Adair County, Manufacturers Coal & Coke Company, Iowa & St. Louis Railroad, Rombauer Coal Company, Kansas City Midland Coal Company, Billy Creek Mine, Thousand Hills State Park, Sand Creek Gold Placer Deposit, Prairie Oil & Gas Co., Scheffler Geode Mine, Bevier & Southern Railroad, Wardell Mansion, Harbison-Walker Refractories, Mallinckrodt Chemical Company, Missouri Aggregates, Flint Quarry Trail, Missouri Silica Sand, US Silica Pacific Plant, Florissant Field, Monsanto Company, David Jones Mine, Bakery Gas Well, Scullin Steel Company, Raeder Building, American Zinc Company Building, St. Louis Shot Tower, Laclede-Christy Clay Products Co., Missouri Furnace, Vulcan Ironworks, Leslie Mine.
