Atlantic No. 1 Mine (ca.1898-  ?  ), located on the Pennsylvania Railroad, two above Houtzdale, Woodward Twp., Clearfield Co., PA
[ During the summer of 1880 John Whitehead commenced the Atlantic mine on lands of Wallace, Reading & Company, formerly a part of the estate of Samuel Hagerty. This mine was situated on the Moshannon Branch, two miles above Houtzdale, and nearly opposite the Kendrick shaft. The coal here rose up to about water level, or very near it, and the drainage of the mine was had through the shaft. The first shipment from this mine was made in January, 1881. This was another of the Harned, Jacobs & Company collieries, and passed with the rest to the Berwind-White Coal Mining Company, by whom it is now (ca.1887) operated; Robert Whitehead, superintendent.

During the fall of 1886 the company determined to place “ rope haulage ” in this mine, as the territory that could be reached by this opening was very extensive, and to that end they employed Mr. H. M. Morrison, of England, to place his system in the colliery. This system is the “cable,” or endless rope haulage, and is now in successful operation, it being the first of its kind in the region. The opening for this mine is erroneously called a “slope,” but it is not a slope in the general acceptation of the term, as nearly all of its coal is above water level, and a “slope,” as generally understood, means an opening to bring coal or other substance to the surface, by means of an inclined plane, and from below water level.]
