Where is Mine? How do I get there?

Dear Capt. Paul:

I saw your answer on lasmag.com about how to get to the Sulfur Mine from Golden Meadow.

Can you please tell me how to get to them from the Pointe-au-Chien Marina at the end of Highway 665?

What is the name of the lake that is referred to as the Sulfur Mine? I looked at a lot of maps, and can’t find the Sulfur Mine on any of them?

Thanks a lot. You do a great job.

Capt. Paul’s response:

First, the Larose Sulfur Mine area is located 3.4 miles east of Grand Bayou, 1.5 miles northeast of Lake Bully Camp, 1.6 miles southwest of the lower part of Bayou Blue and about 1,000 yards north of Bayou Bouillon in the Pointe au Chien WMA, and is part of the Bully Camp Oil and Gas Field.

The rough center of the mine area is at or about N29 27.685 x W90 22.990.

There is a large triangle-shaped levee system on the southern side of the mine that has an open area on the northern side.

As for getting there, you should try heading north in Cutoff Canal, past the WMA headquarters to Grand Bayou, then northward in Grand Bayou to a point that is at or about N29 27.639 x W90 26.302. At that point, turn in the canal to the east, and continue carefully in the canal to a point that is at or about N29 27.861 x W90 23.618, then turn to the southeast in the canal to the mine area.

Unless otherwise specified, all positions are stated as degrees, minutes and thousandths of minutes (DDD,MM.mmm), and were determined using WGS 84 datum. All bearings and courses are stated in magnetic degrees.

Dear Capt. Paul:

What are the coordinates of the mouth of Bayou Biloxi in Lake Borne?

Thanks, Tugboat

Capt: Paul’s response:

The actual entrance to Bayou Biloxi at the shoreline of Lake Borgne is at or about N29 59.873 x W89 33.43.438.

The Bayou Biloxi light is located at or about N30 00.435 x W89 33.611.

It is about 800 yards from the shoreline, and is the marker for the entrance to the bayou. The light is about 17 miles at a bearing of 157 degrees magnetic from the railroad bridge at the Rigolets by Lake Borgne.
