RI&C Mine No. 6

Photo of RI&C Mine No. 6
Mile Mark: 31.30
Elevation: 1850'
Date Built: 1891

This mine was the only exclusively shaft mine operated by RI&C, and so was known as "The Shaft". It serviced the upper Barnett seam 1891-1925 and 1941 and was extended to the lower Fulton seam for operations 1899-1925 and 1941. It is likely, though, that the shaft entrance was not used in 1941. The mine's production exceeded 3,194,573 tons.
