This old iron ore mine featured many types of so called ‘ore chutes’: slides designed to transport iron ore from the bottom of extraction chambers into the minecarts. Fully wooden as well as metal chutes can be seen. The mine has been abandoned for over 50 years.
The mine is huge and even though we spent a full day underground we only scratched the surface. Here’s what we’ve seen.
