History

Enderby Coal Mines Ltd. was established in 1904 and incorporated January 23, 1905 following the discovery of coal in the Logan Gulch area of Hunters Range southeast of Grindrod. Shares were sold to finance tunnel work into the mountain, but the coal seam proved to be illusive. Shareholders were encouraged to purchase portions of the property on behalf of the company; eventually 135 acres were purchased. The company ran out of money in 1908 and was unable to pursue a different vein in search of coal; employees and shareholders were unable to recoup their losses. In the 1920s interest in the coal mine returned and the secretary answered several inquiries with a complete background to the project, but nothing came of it.
