Fans

Beside the shaft building are two fans on skids, indicating they were used underground.

Steam Downstream

In the steam plant, steam pipes bundled in canvas and asbestos criss-cross the walls.

The shaft house, where hydraulic steel doors allowed or denied entry into the mine shaft. Overhead is a light and alarm. If it sounds, the mine is being evacuated, and you best not go in and best stay the hell out of the way. Locals dump tires here, now.
