Example of Scanned Mine Map
Scanned images (in TIF format) of West Virginia mine maps now can be searched using our Mine Information Database System (MIDS). You can find maps via drop-down lists of counties, quadrangles, coal beds and/or by entering company or mine names, permit numbers, or dates.
If you are already familiar with the application (knowing the 6-digit number of the document), proceed to the download site directly at downloads.wvgs.wvnet.edu/minemaps/.
File names: Each image file name consists of an eight-digit number with the .tif file extension. The first six digits are the document number. Some mines were photographed in multiple images, called scenes. Scene numbers are the last two trailing numbers of the file name. Make sure you download each scene. The images are organized into folders named by the first 3 digits of the document number.
How to get help: If you don't know the mine map document number you need, you can download an index in Microsoft® Excel format as a zip file from https://minesafety.wv.gov/minemapcnty.zip. Or you can also visit our Interactive Coal Bed GIS site to obtain document numbers for some parts of the state. This service is made possible by cooperative efforts of the West Virginia Office of Miners' Health, Safety and Training and the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey. Help is available from the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey at (304) 594-2331 or the West Virginia Office of Miners' Health, Safety, and Training at 304-558-1425.
