The Kansas portion of the tristate (southwestern Missouri, southeastern Kansas, and northeastern Oklahoma) lead and zinc district was studied in order to compile maps and report on the location and extent of past mining activities and the resulting hazardous surface effects of mining. Information was acquired from old mine maps, reports, personal interviews, aerial photo interpretation, and fieldwork. Three maps have been prepared that show (1) extent of underground workings and mine shafts, (2) hazardous mine openings including open mine shafts and mine collapses and (3) waste piles and tailings ponds. In addition, tabulations are included for all mine hazards as well as large waste piles and hazardous tailings ponds.
