Just a few mines ive been checking out over the last few weeks, Mainly mixed or copper mines and the a silver lead mine dating from the 1830's or so. The silver lead mine was bloody cold to have a breach in the waders that was not fun times. we had investigated a load more local workings but i need to revisit with an SLR and get some pics when i have working waders again.
Keeping the history and location to a minimum due to the not wanting them capped or gated due to location of some of the workings
this had been ok'd with styru

a very early working ran in from the surface following the lode, note crawl on the right hand side we have been told there a further stope to be found on this mine down a small passage that appeared flooded so a return visit is in order

note water level of the workings at its deepest it was just below chest wadorz the original level was caused due to capping program
