Palin is not the real name of the mine, and I had been asked not to say much about this mine other than its standby status, awaiting the price of ore to become profitable again.

It has some neat equipment inside, mainly a hoist used to haul ore cars up from lower levels. Also, it was used as a Civil Defense shelter, and many supplies are still inside. This was a fun place to explore.

This hoist is now gone

Since my first visit, this place has been trashed. The Civil Defense supplies and equipment have been removed. Enjoy my photos. That’s all that’s left.
