Diamond Mine (ca.1873-  ?  ), located on the Allegheny Valley Railroad [Pennsylvania Railroad], on the south side of the Sandy Lick Creek just north of Reynoldsville, Winslow Twp., Jefferson Co., PA.
[In 1873 The Diamond Gas Coal Company began opening the Diamond Mine.  In April, 1874, the first shipment of coal by rail went out of Jefferson county which was from this mine. It was the beginning of coal shipments from this region to distant markets. Since then millions of tons have been shipped from Winslow township mostly to the Great Lakes and the Atlantic coast. This first consignment was taken from the Diamond Mine to the Reynoldsville railroad station in wagons, and was sent from here by rail to Buffalo. A siding was soon completed from the Diamond Mine across the Sandy Lick Creek to the Allegheny Valley Railroad.]
[The Diamond Gas Coal Company was the first coal company that operated in this county, but it was confined to but one mine.]
