Description:
A site to way mark all kinds of mines from around the world, working or abandoned mines, metal (ie Tin, Copper, Zinc etc) or non metal mines (ie Coal, Diamond, Salt etc). To exclude quarries (ie where road stone or a none specific mineral is worked. To include open pits / mines ie Coal, Copper, Gypsum etc). Excludes natural caves unless exploited for mineral (ie Derbyshire Blue John Mines or similar). Can include named placer or alluvial mine sites.
Expanded Description:
Any mine anywhere in the world no matter what is or was mined. This can include all metal or non metal mines or open mine pits but definitely no road stone or similar type quarries or natural caverns unless specific named minerals were mined commercially from them. Tourist mine sites are welcomed. Can include mines that have been filled in even if site cant readily be identified, many have little or no remains left and have been built over.

Info on mines World wide can be found on www.mindata.org

On 4/10/2013 a massive landslide totally destroyed the Mine Visitor Center. Because of advance warning everything at the Visitor Center had been removed to a safe location. A new Visitor Center will probably not be available until after 2014.

An abandoned mine shaft I found while hiking in the mountains above Ogden, Utah. I have tried to find some history on the mine but can't find anything. The deeper you go into the shaft the steeper it gets.
