I was searching around and found something very interesting and an added bonus two videos that go with it. Check out the link and the videos. Ironminers.com needs to buy an iron mine someday!

Yeah I know that not getting to see more of the mine was pretty disappointing but still a very cool find. I wish that the guy took more pictures but again it appears that the guy isn't into it for the pictures, more like for the money and because he can afford to do it. I wonder how much he paid for the mine. He tells people through the site how often he visits the mine a year which was pretty cool to know. One things for sure that not everyone out there feels the same way as we do about mines, mine pictures, mine safety and exploring to achieve a full documentation of what we find in them and out. And by saying that I know we are a different breed of mine researchers aside from the rest!
Glad you like the post Greg and see ya soon!
