Scott Mine - MP 5
Scott Mine Report - Bob Ciminel
The coal seam was at 1,110 ft MSL
and the railroad was down around 850 ft MSL. I put the tipple
at about 860 ft MSL. The photo shows excellent evidence of
the former mine, but it looks like the tipple had been dismantled by
1939. I remember seeing the waste dump when
traveling eastbound on the Parkway before they built the shopping
center. You can see where they hit the coal seam when they
excavated the hill behind Montour Church. I'll bet they strip
mined the area to offset the cost of grading the site.
