Here are some more Putnam County mine teasers. This mine has at least 4 levels above the water table that are fully accessible. Some of them are quite small but all are interesting. Here are shots of the levels....

Seen here are the remains of rail.

Compressed air piping lies on the floor and hooks to support them are firmly attached to the wall..

The entrance to the main haulage level from the stope and a stull.

Although out of view, blasting wire was discovered in these tiny tunnels.
