ABSTRACT The mineral deposits of the Illinois-Kentucky fluorspar district are the major source of domestic fluorspar; they also contain significant amounts of lead, zinc, barite, cadmium, and germanium, and some silver.

Barite, strontium, and a small amount of copper are present, but mostly these are not by: 4. Excellent possibilities exist for finding deposits of fluorspar, lead, zinc, silver, cadmium, rare earths, and niobium in Illinois and Kentucky.

Central Kentucky Mineral District. The Central Kentucky Mineral District, commonly known as the Central Kentucky Fluorspar District, covers part or all of the 16 counties in the Bluegrass Region of central Kentucky and consists of more than vertically dipping vein deposits.

Barite, fluorite, calcite, galena, and sphalerite have been. Central Kentucky Mineral District indicates locations of mineral veins. Vein Minerals. Mineral veins occur throughout central Kentucky, but are mostly concentrated along vertical, north-trending faults, fractures, and joints.

More than vein deposits have been documented (Anderson and others, ). Veins pinch and swell along strike. Within the basin, deposits valuable for lead, zinc, coal balls and fluorite are mined in Hardin and Pope counties, Illinois, and Crittenden and Livingston counties, Kentucky.

the deposits are in the form of veins and limestone replacement deposits in Mississippian sedimentary rocks. Ore minerals are fluorite, galena, and sphalerite. Inthe Minerva Oil Company decided to sink a second shaft, approximately foot in depth, in to serve as a service and a possible escape route.

The Minerva No. 1 Mine was the deepest operational mine in the Illinois-Kentucky Fluorspar District. Since the early s, fluorite has been mined in southeastern Illinois.

The fluorspar-rich region, which reaches from southeastern Illinois into parts of Kentucky, was called the Illinois-Kentucky Fluorspar Mining District. In Illinois, fluorite was mined almost exclusively in Hardin and Pope Counties.

The office is involved in an Education Outreach program where it educates children and adults on mining; its products and their uses. The office maintains a trailer which travels the state to give school children and organizations a museum like setting to learn about the industry and how its products affect our lives.

Welcome to the Clement Mineral Museum, a one-of-a-kind showcase of the collection of Ben E. Clement, a giant in Kentucky mining. The collection is composed of thousands of fluorite crystal specimens, ranging in weight from a fraction of an ounce to hundreds of pounds.

Each specimen was “a rare accidental find” among regular ore bodies. Three primary areas of interest are covered by this map service, Central Kentucky Mineral District (CKMD), Western Kentucky Fluorspar District (WKFD), and South-Central Mineral District (SKMD).

These are recognized regions of established ore deposits that had been explored or mined for over years for fluorspar, zinc, or barite from mapped.

Kentucky has identified mines listed in The Diggings™. The most commonly listed primary commodities in Kentucky mines are Zinc, Lead, and the time these mines were surveyed, 13 mines in Kentucky were observed to have ore mineralization in an outcrop, shallow pit, or isolated drill hole—known as an occurance mine.

1 Kentucky has 43 prospect. The southeast Missouri and Illinois-Kentucky mineral districts are commercially among the most, important mining districts in the United States. These districts lie almost entirely within three quadrangles, the Eolla, St.

By clicking on individual points or regions of interest, users can access reports, drill-hole logs. The Division of Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) works throughout the state’s coal fields to protect the public from health and safety problems caused by mining that occurred prior to Examples of hazards that can be found on abandoned mine sites are landslides, water-filled pits, open mine portals and dilapidated equipment and buildings.

Severed minerals are real property and usually are conveyed by mineral deed. Obtaining Mining Rights on Private Land. Privately-owned minerals typically are leased by companies seeking to develop them, sometimes with an option to purchase.

Mining leases tend to have quite a long term -- 20 years generally is the minimum.Kentucky lies in the southeastern part of the United States. Towards the northern border of the state, flows the Ohio River surrounded by the Ohio Valley. The valley is primarily composed of sedimentary rock resulting only in a few minerals such as fluorite, calcite, quartz, dolomite, geodes and pyrite.

Kentucky has vast deposits of coal.
