Mining Equipment

I spent some time not long ago looking at the mining history of my area, viewing the surface remains of several old mines, and descending into a formerly-active mine and an active surface mine. Here's a teaser, as this topic will take up several posts.

  2. We went through several gold mines in and around Pike's Peak area long ago.

    This brings back such fond memories of good times.
    Excellent photography.

  4. Those old mines had great looking machinery. I am surprised it has not wound up in a mining museum.

  6. Very interesting, I think its fascinating how old machinery can take on a beauty when left like this. There is a walk we did a few years ago along an old mining trail and the left over machinery appears as sculptures in the landscape. Looking forward to the next posts.

  8. My husband, Grant, was in mining for the last 30 years of his working life. But always open cast (above ground) fortunately. Thanks for sharing. Jo

  9. These kinds of finds are always so very interesting to us -- Bill likes any and all industrial equipment and job-related stuff -- we both love learning about the history of an area we're visiting -- and my Grandfather was a mining engineer... before I remember him, but I do remember his stories.
