  1. This place is right down the road from my house but I’ve never been there. There it’s probably a no trespassing sign on the property so I really don’t know if it’s haunted or not.

  2. worked in the mine in the 70s live 20 min, away. I have never heard of any paranormal. the main reason the mine closed was eviromental and taxes it ran out of all tax breaks. I do remember 1 death due to cave ins. 2 deaths in a belt conveyor

  3. This place you cant get into. It is owned by the electric company still and there is a no trespassing sign on the closed fence gate.

  4. This place is not haunted at all. It’s right in my back yard and we go over there all the time. We usually go around midnight, and yeah it’s creepy, but it is not haunted. All of the mines are filled with water, and closed off, but the buildings are open and really cool for exploring.

  5. Complete BS used to ride our dirt bikes all over that property and my uncle worked there.Never heard anything about miners or anyone dying there and after an online search there were only two fatalities. In 2009 property was supposedly part of a deal sold to a German salt company

  6. ok your allowed to go in but dont somthing fowllowed my mom home and my etire family said it was inteans with hearing banging and seeing a shadow person as bright as day dont go it took us moving to get it away

    • I use to work there in the 70s and would like to go and look around for memories it was quite an experience working 2001 feet underground
