Rock Pond Mine photos are below. The discussion is here http://www.ironminers.com/mineforum/viewtopic.php?p=111360

Image
The mine overlooks the beautiful Rock Pond with an Adirondack peak in the distance.

Image
An intact steam boiler.

Image
It is in excellent condition. It just goes to show that if you leave something alone, it can survive the test of time.

Image
The adit is reached and looks very reminiscent of Buttermilk Falls Mine.

Image
Like Buttermilk, the texture of the floor is well, just like thick buttermilk.

Image

Image

Image
Unfortunately no trackage.

Image
Some work has been done here besides tunneling...

Image
It appears the graphite deposit was merely tapped.

Image
Up on the surface however and above the adit tunnel is a large open pit working, now water filled.
