This is a huge mining complex but I got here a little too late. I think they tore most of the stuff out of here. There are some other web sites covering this mine and I was expecting to find a lot more than I did. It was interesting nonetheless. This mine was constructed in 1905 and from what I can find lasted until 1962 but may have been leased to other operators as late as the early 1980's. The mines power house still remains and is a huge building. I couldn't get inside but did see a decent amount of machinery still remaining through a crack in the chained up door. Part of the tipple still remains and there is a very nice look out point off the road leading into town.
