Evidences of prehistoric mining operations for mica have been found at the Liberty (Curley), Great Southern No.1, and Miller mines (Sterrett, 1923, pp. 28, 32, 34, 35) . The Indian mine is reported to be another site of mining by the aborigines, and the Indians are said to have dug beryl for adornment from the Smith No. 1 deposit. According to Mrs. E. W. York, of Heflin, the first systematic mining in the district was done about 1870 in the Pinetucky No.1 deposit. Some of the mines in Randolph County were opened about 1885, and others were worked in 1893.
