    cornish no 2 gold mine and mine cap craved in, 2700 foot drop plus finds

    hi everyone, went to a place call ST JUST POINT .about 500 metres from my house.i went to a mine called the CORNISH NO2.i got a nasty surprize when got there,the mine cap had craved in after the last rain. the shaft is about 2700 feet deep .so if you fell down it you have just enough time to say the lord prayer in full before you hit the bottom.didn't have much luck there ,so went to ware the crushing battery was and found a bronze leaver and some old square nails and bit of glass.got some pics.

    Sorry but I haven't been keeping up on your thread here. Are you going in old mines alone? Living near gold country I've come upon many an old and forgotten mine, and the temptation is always strong to go in and explore.
    I'm just saying be careful and have somebody with you who can go for help. Not only caveins but bad air as well can be found in them.
    Cool finds!! HH

    I have a suggestion....as the cap fell in, it might be nice to find out who the owner of the property is and let them know.
    Granted, they do not need to know you were TH'ing, but there is a safety/liability issue there, and of course it might be nice if a new cap were put on it.

    I am the kind of person though who would get a large rock, and toss it in and then see how long it takes (timing with a watch) for it to hit bottom.

    My Aunt & Uncle used to own a cabin 12 miles south of Aspen Colorado at an old Ghost town called Ashcroft.
    There were old silver mines all over the place.

    One day my cousin and I decided to follow a creek that ran just behind the cabin. It came from a place where two mountain ridges kind of ran into each other. So we go about a mile or so, and as we came around the bend, we came upon a mine entrance right in the middle of the creek. There was an ore car sitting there full of rocks on the rails that lead into the mine entrance. As with all the other mines, the entrance was caved in, but I wish I had a camera with me at the time.
