An article published in the Arkansas Gazette on January 15, 1856 created an onslaught of speculation about a volcanic eruption in southeastern Logan
County, Arkansas. It wasn't until January 15, 1981, that the Gazette republished the story of the volcano.
The third largest diamond found in the state of Arkansas was found in Searcy, AR which is approx. 40-50 miles from the earthquake swarm and 100+ miles
from the Murfreesboro diamond mine.
Arkansas Volcanic Past
Without any doubt Arkansas has a very volcanic past. We still have the Diamond Mine, Hot Springs, Magnet Cove and more Bentonite than any other state.
Oh lets not forget all the quartz is volcanic related too.
Pinnacle mountain looks like a volcano to me, but the experts say it is not.
The Mississippi river flood plain could have easily hidden evidence of extinct/dormant volcanoes.
Oh, and a 4.7 magnitude earthquake is equivalent to 150,000 tons of TNT. I for one do not buy the fracking explanation.
