So mining remnants, huh? I am guessing they filled those terraced walls with water, and dumped ore in the top one. The water drained out each of those square holes taking unwanted material out with it. That way there ore would be left behind. Is this correct? Anyone know. I just thought it was interesting.

yup, gold silver lead and a few others, not to mention some awesome gems and such.

the concrete structure is whats left of the large building that housed a stamp mill ect.. it was a large mine with a deep vertical shaft, had a headframe in its day. like vulture mine.

heres an ironic thing, during its days in operation nobody lost life, it wasnt until much after its closure that two individuals fell to there deaths in the shafts. i remember going in there before the first guy died cause it was open before that, then they sealed it off.

Yeah...when you pick up the tag another tag needs to be posted to finish your turn. By waiting, most people will hesitate to try and get it for the risk of the first person finishing the turn first then the second guy is straggling on the new tag. So its almost a "hold". In order to avoid having to wait weeks for one guy to finish his turn it is permitted for others to "steal" it and finish the turn first and leave you stragglin. It doesnt happen often but it can. It is known as being "bruced". Good try.

The new tag I choose was slightly out of the 50 mile loop (should have checked the map closer) so I could not use it. Did not want to get a "foul called on me" so thought it best not to post it.
However it seems that agavelvr was there first on Saturday night.
