At Pt. Sullivan a shaft 120 ft. was made by McClosky & others with poor results.  The outcrop is about 8 inches thick of much crushed shaly lignite with polished surfaces.  In the shaft according to McClosky there are two seams separated by about 6-8 inches of hard slate.  Dip NE 60°.  Strike 60° NW.  The coal taken out of this shaft does not appear to have been utilized except in the dwellings adjacent to the mine.  (Specimen no 116)  The adjacent shales show numerous leaf impressions.
