Miner Jon and I visited this small operation over the course of two summers. The collective pictures are presented in this mini-slideshow though we have many questions about these workings located a spitting distance from a hugely successful operation. Enjoy the pictures...

Thanks Greg. I also wanted to add that this is one of the warmest and driest mines I have been inside so far. It is a far different feeling than the cold damp mines we have in the Highlands. In some cases the air feels more like that of a basement on a warm day. Even some of the scents you might equate with what I'll call the "basement smell" are felt in mines such as Golden Turkey.
