This link is a great resource for West Deer History. Lots of neat old photos and RR/Mine history.
Not sure if its correct, but according to the West Deer history page, it appears that Russellton No. 2 was north of the Rural Ridge RR underpass, and on the east side of Little Deer Creek Road. See "Picture 38" in the link. Deer Creek Road appears to be a lot straighter than in real life. Russellton No. 1 was located also on the east side of the road, but to the north approximately between Star and Michael roads (located on the west side of the road). See "Picture 30" for a map showing Russellton No. 1.
Lots more info on the West Deer site about all of the other mines, including photos of Superior, Bairdford, Benjamin, and Francis.
