A former coal (sub-bitumen) occurrence/mine located in the E½ sec. 19, T11N, R18E, G&SRM, 12.1 km (7.5 miles) SW of Holbrook.

The field contains two coal beds separated by about 15 feet of non-coaly rock. The lower bed is generally only 2–3 feet thick, and the upper bed is as much as 12 feet thick but contains at least 50 percent non-coal material (Veatch, 1911).
