A Terrifying Descent Into An Abandoned Mine

The mine system at Cerro Gordo is sprawling and complicated. The Union Mine Shaft is the main artery to accessing many of the mines, but the problem is that it’s an elevator that requires a team to operate it, so I’m always on the hunt for other ways to get into the Union Mine system.

I recently purchased a book that lays out all the geological information of the mine system at Cerro Gordo and I found a few possible access points to get into the main mine. Two of those were through the Bullion Tunnel, so I got Johnny to come mount up and get ready to explore with me on what he called “our dumbest” mission yet.
