Athens County Mine Inspections 1910

Posted by JRW on February 21, 2011

Annual report of the chief inspector of mines for the year ending Dec 31, 1910

Issue 36

By Ohio. Inspector of Mines


John L. Mcdonald.

Composed Of Athens County.

Hon.. Geo. Harrison6, Chief Inspector of Mines. Columbus, Ohio.

Dear Sir:—I herewith submit the annual report of the Third Mining District of Ohio, for the year beginning January 1, 1910, and ending December 31, 1910.

The district is composed of Athens County, the mines are operated in the number 6, 7 and 8 seams of coal, the number 6 varying from 4 to 6} ft. in thickness, consisting in the main of shaft mining, at a depth of from 80 to 450 ft., has formerly been overlayed with a splint coal top, but has been gradually developing into a very bad white slate top, which is full of slips and joints, rendering the occupation of the miner more hazardous, and great vigilance will have to be exercised on the part of both miner and the management, and with an increased cost of mining, to be mined with any reasonable degree of safety. The No. 7 seam is about 4 ft. in thickness, and is being developed mainly in Trimble township, on the Hocking Valley side, where it is mined in the hill tops. Two new mines have been opened in the No. 7 seam during the year, operations being comparatively small as compared with the No. 6 seam. The No. 8 seam is not very extensively worked, on account of poor transportation and a large amount of refuse found in the vein. This seam is from 5 to 9 ft. in thickness, separated with a natural strata of 15 inches of slate in the middle, and a large amount of other impurities. The mines, with the exception of a few small ones, are equipped with electric mining machinery. Rope and motor haulage, with large steam driven fans, are installed at most of the mines, with sufficient capacity to produce the required amount of ventilation, and is well distributed into the inner sections, when brick or substantial material is used for that purpose, except in mines which are rapidly being exhausted.

Annual report of the Chief Inspector of Mines of Ohio, Issue 20, 1895

DO- DOC-184

‪Annual report of the Chief Inspector of Mines of Ohio, Issue 20, 1895

Excerpted sections for inspections for Hocking, Perry and Athens Counties from the 1894 Ohio Mine Inspections Report—

More references to mines in these counties can be found in the report specific to accidents, deaths and injuries sections of book, as well as how these counties ranked in various categories specified.  Many spellings are lost via digital scanning of original text.  The Google site also has pdf style pages that can be referred to that provide the copy of the original document, which can be referred to for corrections.


Inspector of the Third District, from November 15, 1893, to November 15, 1894. Hon. R. M. Haseltine, Chief Inspector of Mines:

Sir: I herewith respectfully submit my third annual report of the mines of the third district for the year ending November 15, 1894.

In the four counties comprising the district I have visited 206 mines during the year. I also visited one mine in Athens and one in Hocking county, making a total of 208 mines visited by me. Of these, 134 have been visited once; fifty-eight twice; ten three times; two four time*; one five times and one six times, making an aggregate of 301 visits.

The permanent improvements may be classified as follows: One new fan erected, six furnaces built, twenty air shafts%sunk and eighteen second openings made. There were twelve mines which stood suspended during the year, seventeen which were abandoned and twenty-five new mines which were opened up.

There have been three sets of scales tested of which two were out of order and inaccurate and one correct.

Five fatal accidents have occurred during the year, as follows: At the Findlay mine, Muskingum county, on January 10, 1894, Lewis.Beitcher was killed by a fall of slate; at No. 21 mine of the Sunday Creek Company, Perry county, on March 15, 1894, Stepaen Keeler was fatally injured by the explosion of a keg of powder while filling a cartridge, the victim dying from his injuries March 24,1894. At the N6. 27 mine of Calvin Essex, Perry county, on July 20, 1894, Michael Maloy was fatally injured by a fall of slate, dying from the effects of the accident August 7, 1894. At an air shaft which was being sunk on the property of the Shawnee Coal Company, Perry county, on October 10, 1894, John New was fatally injured by rocks falling down the shaft, dying from h e injuries November 5, 1894, and on October 18, 1894, at the No. 3 mine of the Brush Creek Coal Company, Muskingum county, Geo. Hysell was killed by a fall of slate.

The general suspension of the coal industry during the summer has rendered the returns much smaller than they would otherwise have been. For the same reason quite a number of our visits were ineffective, as the mines were repeatedly found idle and no person on the premises.

I report with pleasure that the harmonious relations existing between the operators and miners of my district and myself during the preceding two years, have continued unbroken throughout the year just closed. Thanking them for their kind and courteous treatment, and you especially for your cordial co-operation and kindly advice, I am, very respectfully,

R. H. Miller, Inspector Third Districi,

Shawnee, Ohio, November 16, 1894.
