Ma On Shan Iron Mine – underground film, 2014

Billy Clarke has forwarded a link to a film made by HK URBEX of a visit by the group underground at Ma On Shan Iron mine. I think the visit was in March 2014.

From their website “HK URBEX visits the once booming iron ore mine.
Between 1953 and 1976, this was home to thousands of iron ore miners. But as demand for steel declined in the 70s, the mine began losing money and was left abandoned leaving its elaborate network of caverns and tracks intact. Some say it can go 100 meters deep.

HK URBEX (Urban Exploration) Community describe themselves as  “a group of urban explorers who want to photograph and immortalise the buildings and sites that have been abandoned – but also the items that people have left behind. What results is a uniquely divergent view of our city and its people. We are a motley crew of photographers, film makers, journalists, writers, adrenaline junkies…”
