    Three types of underground mines are found in Ohio, each named for the type of opening workers use to gain access to the commodity being extracted (fi g. 1). A drift mine extends horizontally from the surface into the resource being extracted. Most abandoned underground coal mines and many industrial-mineral mines in Ohio are drift mines.
