Under Ground Silverton

Old Hundred Gold Mine












The ceilings were lined
with chain link
in some areas.




That will hold the mountain
up I'm sure.






Our guide demonstrated
drilling techniques.
Very Loud!!!



Dynamite







Some tunnels were flooded
too much to enter.




Necessary mine equipment:
Ore scooper
&
Pot for pooper






Jim and I,
with (Digger) the guide.

Looks very interesting. Probably even educational. But thanks, I'LL PASS! Something about the whole 'mountain-held-up-with-chain-link' just doesn't do much for me.

Yeah...I'm with Kristi, though the pooper on the train car was compelling! ;)
