Description


Berks County, Pennsylvania, is the home of many famous and world-class mineral localities -- the Jones Mine, Fritz Island Mine, and Grace Mine - to name just a few. This new book pulls together over 200 years of mining and mineral history under one cover. It is richly illustrated with 653 figures - old and new photographs, old maps, mine surface plans and cross sections, and photographs of minerals from museum, university, and private collections. Many of the old photographs have never been published before. An extensive bibliography is included. The Mines and Minerals of Berks County, Pennsylvania describes over 500 mines, quarries, and mineral localities. It includes the known history of each mine and locality and a list of reported minerals. Their locations are shown on a set of USGS topographic maps. Because many of the mines had several names over the course of their history, a comprehensive cross-index is provided.
