Quincy Copper Mine, Hancock, Michigan

Visited this mine which worked from 1848-1945.
My first visit to an underground mine! Very interesting tour, but so thankful I never had to work in one. On of the shafts goes down over 9,000 feet.
Great shot👍😊

And those mines are cold too! We've toured a couple mines and underground caves- fascinating places but like you, I would not want to work there. Nice shot!

Since the mine goes down to 9,000 feet, the guide said it gets up to 90°F. 33°C. Then in the UP winters you would come up to well below zero!
I had a great uncle die in a mining accident in Yorkshire, but I have no idea how deep he was.
