the tour is only in about 3% of that entire mine. although a huge amount is flooded now. still acessable outside the tour probably about 10 times bigger than the tour itself. the escapeway through the no.1 fan takes you through a bunch of old works.

i really would like to see 'em, actually. the only mine i've ever been in is the pioneer tunnel, what with growing up down hear in pain-in-the-ass-vill.
