Conner Bank:

This ore bank, situated in LL 181 on the Iron Belt RR, was worked to a considerable extent in the 1800s.   It had
already been long abandoned, with the cuts reported as "partially filled with water", when Samuel W. McCallie
visited sometime prior to his 1900 publication of "A Preliminary Report on a Part of the Iron Ores of Georgia".

NE of the Conner Bank, on LL's 214 & 215, was the Pauper Farm - Collins manganese deposit.
Mining in open cuts (and later tunnels) started here in 1908, and continued through the 1940s.
