Here are the photos of our Ely Mine adit recon. Discussion here http://www.ironminers.com/mineforum/viewtopic.php?p=111565

Image
The main adit

Image
The first 15 feet of the adit is stone lined.

Image
Inside, the tunnel features full trackage intact.

Image
In the late 1800's, ore cars were pulled by horse through here.

Image
An inspection of a small stope leading off to the left of the tunnel.

Image
Eventually the tunnel reaches a large room with a winze sunk 200 feet deep, now drowned.

Image
The winze is carefully examined.

Image
Looking into the deep winze.

Image
Yet another stope is discovered.

Image
The stulls of the stope can be seen. The tunnel continues past here to the main stope reaching a final distance of approximately 800 feet!
