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



collapsed section due to kaolin



raise workings above the adit



Silver lead workings


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


small section of stope
