The earliest mining operations at Franklin (pka: Franklin Furnace, NJ) were iron mines, flux quarries and a significant iron furnace on the banks of the Franklin Pond, resulting from the damming of the Wallkill River. The area of the furnace was prepared by an excavation into the Precambrian Franklin marble bedrock on the North shore of the pond. This excavation yielded some significant mineralization. This locality is within the Franklin Mining District. The complete list of mineral species occurring within this district, as well as the official boundaries of the district, can be found under the locality file for "Franklin Mining District."
