Foreman Mine

The Foreman mine is shown in "Faded Footprints" with the author George Thompson in the entry. That picture has always been intriguing to me and we finally took the time to locate it this past weekend. We discovered that the mine is really a natural cave that someone, more recently, has been excavating. There was no evidence of precious metals or minerals, other than calcite, that could make the mine worth while, but it was fun to explore.

This is the upper entrance. Both entrances appear natural and are consistent with the type of caves found in the same area.

This is looking at the platform just inside the entry.

Shane climbed down the wet and rotting wood ladder with the use of a rope to investigate the lower passage.
