John Henry Mine

This mine is located about a mile east of downtown Black Diamond. According to the the US Geological Survey, 5 Billion tons of coal may still lurk under Black Diamond and the region. The mine was mothballed in 2006 after a cave-in. The owner, Pacifc Coast Coal Company has since tried to reopen the mine, as coal prices have soared, but government bureaucracy has made acquiring the necessary permits virtually impossible.
