Miner CT Mike snowshoes across the large mine tailings leading up to the mine.

Image
The icicle filled stoped mine adit.

Image
Once inside the mine researchers quickly strap on their mine appropriate gear.

Image
For the first 100 feet the adit is stoped out. After this point the mine is reduced to a standard sized tunnel.

Image
The tunnel continues completely ice covered for perhaps another 100 feet.

Image
An icicle formation on the left leads from a small stope.

Image
Next, the IronMiners encover a large deep ice covered stope with an intact winch!

Image
Miner CT Mike poses by the winch used to raise and lower ore.

Image
Looking back, the enormity of the stope can be appreciated. Now imagine this scene in operation and what the depth of the stope might have been.

Image
Just as the IronMiners catch their breath after discovering the winch, an intact ORE CAR greets them!

Image
Past this point, the mine researchers climb the ice covered stopes.

Very Nice. I love the last one with the frozen waterfall! It looks like the mine would be flooded in spring, so winter is a great time to explore it.
