Mr. W. E. Phillips, General Manager of the Company, says that this mine will be the best equipped in this part of the country.  2,600 feet of railroad is now under construction, which will connect the mine with the Cotton Belt Railroad.

This new project will be completed within 60 days and at a cost of approximately $25,000.  The capacity of this mine will be about 800 tons per day

  1. I remember the name W. E. Phillips as one of the early Malakoff leaders, but I never knew about this particular Lignite mine. I this the same one where strip pits were or is this different?
