Robinson. Esq., it dial swirl n Yoter letter tame ome time since you wished to know about the Mineral resources that could be made available by arty one 6r Alt the practicable rail Road routes from ports Mobabi via Jackson and Richmond to Ciui Cote. In answer it Mav be said generally that All the High grounds the Eastern Ana Northern Waters Little.

Six seven rates West Fli Carmur town. Would be near the wested limit the Xoai Ana Iron Region in tin inc the Iro Ore in some places extends to the West this line the Hilt tops but much this Isa Sandvand coarse c Al such As is rarely used by the furnaces. The Coal and Iron Ore lies mostly to the East that line although there May be some Hills to the West Timat line uhf Nave a Lew acres coat near their summits. X f the Copland Ore Beds dip slightly to the e. S. E. So that from one to three Miles East this line the High Are mostly under Laid by Beds Coal and Iron Ore above the Levels the. Streams so As to be easily worked without having the mines troubled by water. Two three Miles Lardner to the West these Coal and Ore Beds disappear be Law the level the valleys out could be mined by sinking Shaft s Down to their lev Els while other Beds Coal Limestone Iron Ore and Buhr Eton a Are found in the Bills ring nearly horizontal like those be Neath them. Some Miles farther w the East these Beds also disappear by dipping beneath the value Msj and still other teds Coal Limestone and Iron Ore appear in the Hill sides. ".5 either the routes indicated to you in my letter last october november Pas sing through near Jackson would pass several must Taro you tue nun Crai pc Gifu where Coal and Iron Ore abound Are easily accessible equal to the Best in their useful qualities and a be considered As practically r i 1st., the route Down Iju Caneye Creea san Down the South Fork Salt Creek would pass at least five Miles among the Coal and Ore Beds. ,. V a " that by four Mil e Creek thence by Jack and Down the South Fork Salt Creek would pass about 12 Miles among the coat Sua Ore Beds v " 3d. That by the East head Waters Little Scioto to he wit s Fork summer Creek and thence to the Southern head the South Foik Salt Creek and Down that Stream by Jackson would pass among the Copland Iron Ore Beds about a mites. 4th.

As to the amount the Mineral resources and their capacity for giving employment to capital skill Ana Industry which May be penetrated by the Scioto and Hocking r. A if it be made through near Jackson in Jackson county reference May be made to the geological Keport Ohio to the legis lature in january loj in which it will be see that prof. C. Briggs who was entrust i. Sea with the Veci Weicai inc Mineral resources that Region reported that the Belt Coal deposits from near Franklin Furnace northwards by Jackson and Richland in Jackson co., and thence to the Hocking River 4 Miles West Nelsonville was so abundantly stored with Coal As to be equivalent to a solid unbroken stratum to Miles Long five Miles wide and nine feet thick. Hethran save " this amount Coal will yield about nine millions tons per Square mite this estimate includes but a Small part the Coal which can be obtained from the Beds heretofore described for after disappearing beneath the water courses they doubtless continue eastward toward the Ohio River sinking deeper and deeper be Heath the surface so that they can be reached Only by shafts near the Ohio at the depth some Hundred geological rep. Of Ohio 1838, p. 87. It will be seen from this quotation that prof. Briggs who was a disinterested wit Ness and Active under the authority the state estimated that 9,000,000 tons which is equal to 270,000,000 bushels obtained from a. Single Square mile this tract. A single Square mile this Mineral tract would at that rate Supply Cincinnati with its great consumption for manufactures steamboats and Domestic uses Ace at the rate 16,000,000 bushels per annul for about 17 years and 40 sections each one Square mile along the Railroad route would Supply Cincinnati and Portsmouth at their present rates consumption Lor our years. The proposed Railroad through Jackson would pass through this Coal tract from 5 to 4u Miles according to the route mat May selected while indefinite supplies in Exlaus table for Many Ages would be easily accessible by Short lateral roads leading to the Coal Beds within a few Miles. Prof. Briggs also stated in the same report to which reference has been vide. P. 93 that the Iron Region from the Ohio River near Krauklin Furnace northward by Jackson to the Lockins River occupied snares Ednaj to n unbroken stratum do Miles Long and six Miles wide capable yielding 3,000,000 tons Good Iron Ore to each Square Mue and Tami the Quantity Ore was so great that Jackson Lawrence and Scioto counties were capable producing 400,000 tons for 2.700 years the Ironton Railroad is being constructed 0 Maud Render a voidable these Ore Beds and the Scioto and Hocking Railroad if made through Jackson will also pass through them As above stated from j to 4u Miles and receive a permanently increasing business in proportion to the development these in Eina Buoie Miniat re Yurces. Anu the no merou8 manufactures dependent them the above estimate the Iron Ore by Errol. A Riggs n believed to be As it was in tended to be an underestimate i but taking it to be True each Square mile Section to u acres would an average be capable supplying a Furnace to make 2,u0u tons Iron annually for 1,900 years. What an amount butnee3 a would be done at the e outlets the Ohio River from this Mineral Region if 300 furnaces 300 Square Miles the Iron Region were m full operation t this mar be realized As a fact in one half Century from the present time,1 if out country should continue prosperous and Happy but Coal would necessarily be used for smelting the Iron Ore. Instead the Char Coal which will soon be exhausted by the now in operation and others building projected.

Buhk Mill Stan c. Grade stones whet stones Lime a abound Iti Osif Hills within easy Access the projected railroads but they Are Small moment when compared with the future production Coal and Iron which May be considered As the Bones and sinews civilization. V. Vaa a Means comparing the estimate prof. Briars the Mineral resources Coal and Iron i will state some the results a very careful detailed topographical Grid geological examination a tract 7680 acres land lying in a body in Lawrence Jackson and Scioto counties made in 1848, for the owners with a View to ascertain its capabilities for sustaining Iron works. These lands lie near where the line Railroad from Ironton Portsmouth by Way Hales Creek and Jackson would from the nature the ground Mikety to pass. I do not know that they Are More abundantly supplied with Ore Coal than other lands corresponding in geological position in the Mineral Belt along the proposed lines rail Way. Other tracts that i have had occasion to examine carefully in the Vicinity my residence Are believed to be. Fully equal in their averages Iron Ore and Superior Inocal. " the following table contains Many the results that examination. The thickness the seams Ore is the mean Many measurements in different places the specific gravities the ores we retaken and. Upon these data after ascertaining about the mum Ber acres land in the tract in each Section and parts the Section underpaid by each seam Ore and Coal the calculation the tons is derived. The accuracy this Mode estimate has since Beed proved in the Case trespass one these Ore Beds where the estimate from a Given area and ascertained thickness Ore scarcely differed from the amount testified to under oath before the a s. Circuit court at Columbus november term 1649 by a Man who had dug and sold the Ore which was weighed at the showing the estimated quantities Coal Iron Ore and Limestone available by strip pin e and mining above the level the streams the Robertson tract 7680 acres in Lawrence Jackson and Scioto counties townships 4 and 5 in Range 18, and in township 5 Range 19, by a w.

Those that do not show above the streams the West Boundary the tract Are not taken into account in this table. It will be Teeft by examining the numbers the preceding Isble and making a slight calculation that the 4,202,253 tons Ore easily accessible by stripping the .7680 acres 12 sections would sustain 12 fur Naces one each Section Square mile Lor 7u years each using 7, Tonesi Ore annually and making 2,000 Titis Iron Annii ally there would then remain nearly 20,000, too tons Avail me by mining above water level and such thickness to justify it sufficient Tor 12 furnaces Workins at the same rates consumption and As before for 898 years More Waile there would still be left Rajfa err ugh for the same number furnaces St the Sam rates to last 800 years More by mining below the valleys Autney an in Sci papa and Wales.
