what cutoff to you take to get to the mine? is it the one with the shale slide area that looks like it is maintained or is it the one that we looked up in the vid?

I thought the mine was shut down and gated...can you get back into the mine again?

It's only 15 minutes up the gravel road. Not hard at all to find

I hope you get in. It's worth it to go into the mine. Very safe as well with lots of ventilation

Well if you didn't have a flashlight then yes. but the walls are marked for direction. Lots to explore in there but I can't see how you could get lost.

I heard that the mine was closed down now as well. If not it is super easy to get to when you get to the derelict mining buildings (make sure you check them out there is some cool stuff to see inside them)on the side where the old conveyor comes out of the rock face there is a trail follow it up it will lead you to the mine entrance. Just before you get to the entrance there is a large washout with a plank across it cross it carefully as it is a long way down if you don't. Like Kev said make sure you have at least 2 flashlights each as you will be kinda fucked if you run out of light once your inside the mine. Just follow the markings painted on the walls to get around down there and follow them in reverse to get back out [cheers]
