Straban Township - The Reliance Copper Mine was located just north of Hunterstown and operated during a short span in the early 1900ís. Although a site map of the operation has been preserved, records of mining conducted here is rare. Today only several stone foundations, several dump piles and the filled-in shaft are visible, especially during the winter months. There was a report that gold was recovered from this site which led gold prospectors into the area in 1971, where gold was discovered in nearby Beaverdam Creek.
