Tunston Mine
This tunston mine is on private property, so it's specific location is not given here. After World War II, the value of tunston dropped drastically, and most of the mines soon closed. This one is more like a ghost town as much of the equipment is still in place.

The tin roof of the mine can be seen shining in the distance in the middle of this picture.

The mill still contains much of the processing equipment

An old truck makes a home for a pack rat as it melts into the ground

The upper shaft measures about 300 feet deep

At one point, the ore cart tracks split
