An abandoned copper mine dating back to 1900-1905.  The shaft was developed by the Breitung and Loon Lake Iron companies.  If you enter the lower adit and proceed inward, you will connect with an open-cut to surface further up the mountain-side.  This is a dangerous location to be walking around, especially near a huge open hole next to the open-cut.  Use extreme caution!
