The IronMiners go.... caving? Discussion here: http://www.ironminers.com/mineforum/viewtopic.php?p=111265

Image
At the cave entrance, the camera still hasn't adjusted to the cold humid conditions of the mine it spent the last 5 hours in, clouding up the lens.

Image
Caver CT Mike slips way into the abyss of the cave...

Image
A strange sight. To Caver CT Mike's left are the remains of massive stalactites, intentionally chopped off the ceiling...

Image

Image
Hmm what are sections of rail doing in a cave!?

Image
...and what is with the blasted walls?

Image

Image
Huh? A winze?

Image
It is doubtful nature built the cinderblock wall at the bottom of the winze.

Image
And what with more rail? And a drill hole? This must be a cave that was used as ventilation for a mine. The winze connects to the actual mine.
