Located off Keyser avenue in Taylor the site is presently used as a gold course, and recently received growing greener money to level and revegetate the last remaining traces of this colliery. It was adjacent to the Sloan colliery on the east, and the Taylor colliery on the south west.

Percy Pyne: 1820-February 14,1895
Percy Rivington Pyne, was born in London in 1820, and remained at school in England until 1838. He was about to enter Christ's College, Cambridge, when he suddenly determined to come to America, as his father had obtained for him promise of a clerkship in the office of Mr Moses Taylor, then a young man of promise, who later became perhaps the most prominent merchant and banker of his time. When Mr, Pyne reached the age of twenty-one, he became Mr. Taylor's partner, thus creating the firm of Moses Taylor & Company, of which he remained a member for fifty years. He was also president of the National City Bank, vice-president of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Co., and St. Luke's Hospital, director of the Farmers' Loan & Trust Co., the Lackawanna Iron & Coal Co., the Western Union Telegraph Co., the Chicago & Northwestern Railway Co., the Central Railway & Banking Co. of Georgia, the Central Trust Co., the New Jersey Zinc Co., the Harvey Steel Co., and many other railroads and manufacturing companies. He was trustee and treasurer of the Y. M. C. A. of New York, trustee of the American Museum of Natural History, the Bellevue Medical School, and a vestryman of St. George's Church, New York. His son Moses Taylor Pyne also owned stock in the DL&W’s railroad and coal department
