Happy Halloween everyone!!!
Today’s abandoned mine exploring video features possibly the LARGEST accessible abandoned mine in New Mexico! I’ve conducted many abandoned mine exploration trips across the desert southwest, but in terms of size, this is the largest I have experienced to date. In many areas, the underground scenery resembles a massive cave system. This is truly one of the most interesting abandoned places near me that I have explored!
History of this mine is rather colorful. It started in the early 1900s as an underground lead, zinc, and silver mine. In its later days it became a test site for experimenting with underground munitions storage and the effects of explosives detonating in that setting. It is part of a massive and elaborate network of an underground ore zone that spans for several miles under the mountain.
This mine is so massive, we have made several trips to it, and still are discovering new areas! This video is the first of many documenting this astonishing man-made cavern with sights resembling scenes from cave exploring videos!
Joining us on this adventure are @Zia Mountain Adventures and @Headframe Hunters Mining & Exploration . Together, we take our underground abandoned mine exploring experiences to another level. We have hiked several miles underground documenting this historic place, each one of us with a different perspective. I hope you enjoy our videos, and I encourage you to check out and subscribe to @ZiaMountainAdventures and @Porty1119 channels as well!
This abandoned mine exploring video is shot and presented in 4K and HDR. I recommend for your viewing experience to watch this video with a TV, monitor, or mobile device with a 4K/HDR compatible display. It really does make a difference!
