Old times mine building

#1 Post by Kraake » 12 Jun 2019 11:51

Hi everybody!

I have a small question about this kind of building:

:arrow: Google map LINK - Morenci mine, AZ

We would like to know, what we are looking at.

It's probably building from old times. Can we drive underneath? When we are under the building and we look up, what are we gonna see? Any urbex enthusiast here?

Thank you in advance!

So these kind of buildings vary. Often there was either storage above or machinery. Underneath would be rail or rail carts to either drop loads or just be above ground depending on what kind of product they had. In later times, sometimes roads were built to drop material into trucks or horse carts.

It really depends on the type of operation. Maybe someone will know more than me, but my limited knowledge came from mines in Alaska, British Columbia, and Washington.

Yes, those type of buildings would have been normally placed over a rail line as part of the mine outbound loading system.

I am seeing several good videos on exterior old mines but not many under the building like you are asking. But I did find these that could be of interest.
