If spent some time looking them up, I have the State, mining district & GPS position of all of them in my records

I have ones from Alaska, Washington, Nevada, Oregon , Ca, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Aizona, etc.

I have scoured a LOT of old isolated mining districts looking for paydirt..

I agree with Hoser John.....great photos and I never tire of seeing that stuff. Thanks for posting them Elder Miner! I have a friend here in WA who has a website/blog with photos and a bit of history about many of the old historic mines and mining towns of WA State: Ghost Towns of Washington

SLNugget, thanks for that link. Have visited a few of the sites listed. Only mine I have been in is the Black Chief by Red Bridge in Snohomish Co. on the Mt. Loop. I can't do holes in the ground! Often wonder whats in them though, just can't make myself go in.LOL Take the Grandkids exploreing alot around Wa.

wa-au-nut, Tim has just posted some more photos on his GTW site from his latest trip to Okanogan County gold country.

I know what you mean about going inside any of the old mines. Probably not a good idea and I do worry about Tim doing it as often as he does. I just love the history and mystique that surrounds the old mine sites. Lots of fun to visit and photograph. Glad you take your grandkids exploring.
