Nice find Lizard! How was the ventilation inside that mine? If there is no breeze felt at the entrance, I don't venture in, otherwise I'll check it out as long as it's solid! It's a neat feeling walking around in these old mines, most of them were started around 1900!! The best mines we've found are on roads that are deteriorated to the point that a full size can't get through, but quads can just squeak past, most of the old equipment is usually still there.

Just gotta be careful of the dog, I try to leave mine at home when mine hunting, never know what shat is left behind! We've found barrels of cyanide at some of the old ore milling sites around here!

PAIN is just FEAR leaving the body!

i knew you'd come up with some good stuff!

i dont need people to get me,i just need people to get out of my way

if you put 20 grand into a 30 grand buildup,you dont have a $20,000 rig-you're just $10,000 short of having anything.
