An abandoned Copper Mine dating back to who knows when.  It took us awhile to find this location in the bush.  We knew it was there based on map details, but to actually find the shaft was a challenge.  We were finally able to locate it and a waste rock pile.  According to research records, 2 additional shafts are apparently within a 1 mile vicinity of this property.  Due to the lateness in the day, we gave up our search for the other shafts and headed back to Echo Bay.
