Abandoned mine

I recently hiked to the abandoned mine off of the South Toe river and I was wondering if there were any pics.

Abandoned but still privately owned

Marc, it wouldn't surprise me if you were on or near an abandoned mica mine on or near my family's property in crab orchard ( one mile north of plumtree post office ) .There are several mines in the area, do you know whose land you were on? And you are looking for pics of what, the mines in the area?
