If you expand few to see the location A on the map and zoom to about 2000ft distance it is directly at the top of the page. Completely open mine no signs of anybody trying to seal it or barricade it. Is very old still has tree trunks for roof supports. Anyone know what happened thier or why they left? Sorry directions are shabby

Hiram, you may find the links on this page of interest. These people are interested in mines regardless of what they produced. There is a forum as well.

Interesting Site, Abandoned Mines
