Hey, nice pictures (just saw them now). Just a word of caution, this mine seasonally exhausts dangerously low levels of oxygen -- enough to kill you. This mine should only be visited in the winter time when it breathes fresh air in from the outside. Make sure you have at the very least a flame safety lamp and/or oxygen sensors, preferably one for every person. Any of us would be happy to answer any questions you have. But it is too warm out now to safely explore this mine. Oxygen will dip as low as 12% which is lethal.
