Evidence of coal mining operations of years past are abundant in the environment throughout West Virginia. Acid mine drainage is one such example. The rocks throughout the North Fork branch of the Blackwater River, including here at Douglas Falls, are stained orange/red due to the oxidation of sulfide metals that are introduced from coke production and sub-surface mining.
