A Preliminary Sketch of the Phosphates of Florida free pdf Excerpt from A Preliminary Sketch of the Phosphates of Florida Development of the Industry. The existence of phosphate of lime within the State of Florida has been known for over a decade- but until the spring of 1887, the extent and value of its deposits, possibly with one exception, were unsuspected. In that year Col.T. S. Moorehead, induced by a statement made by Mr. J. F. Le Baron, examined the gravels of the Peace river, recognized the importance of the deposits-, acquired such tracts as were regarded as desirable, and established the pebble-phosphate industry, making his first shipment in May, 1888, to the Scott Manufacturing Company, of Atlanta, Ga. The establishment of the pebble-phosphate industry upon Peace river was followed, a year later, by the discovery in Marion county of an entirely different class of phosphate, now commonly known as hard-rock phosphate. This discovery was made early in June, 1889, by Mr. Albertus Voght, in a well which he was sinking upon his place near the site of the present town of Dunnellon, about 20 miles southwest of Ocala. To it, more than to any other cause, is due the rapid and remarkable development of the present great industry of the State. It was, however, Mr. John F. Dunn, of Ocala, who turned to advantage the accidental discovery of Mr. Voght. After acquiring a knowledge as to the chemical composition and value of the material, Mr. Dunn and his associates purchased several thousand acres of land and organized the Dunnellon Phosphate Company for active operations. From Dunnellon as a center, prospecting rapidly extended in all directions, until at the present day important mines have been opened over a well-defined tract more than 200 miles long and about 6 miles wide. This tract lies parallel to the Gulf coast, at an average distance from it of about 20 miles, and extends from the vicinity of Richland, in Pasco county, northward and westward nearly to the Apalachicola river.
