Why “Lead Mine” Pass – Location
Below is the possible location of the old lead mine, close to Lead Mine Pass.
From the 1963 ortho photo, there are abandoned buildings clearly visible on the main path (circled in red) opposite the possible mine site. The suggested mine site can be seen (highlighted in red) to be terraced, indicating some sort of man made activity or possibly the collapse of the mine workings below. The latest Google image of the area has no obvious signs of previous activity, masked by the lush vegetation and trees.
