Some Silver Mine Pictures
Quote this message in a reply
These were taken when passing thru the small mining town that struck it rich in silver. Cobalt, Ontario Canada
Much of the mines are now ruins, the land underneath the town was honey combed in mine shafts, which resulted in sink holes.......

Cool little town and did find some sliver ore and a few other metals in the tailings.

Yes it is, there's probably about 20 miles of back gravel roads that go to all the abandoned mines and tailings. As long as there are no  NO Trespassing signs your good. Which is probably about 75% of the area. The signs are up in areas too dangerous to be hanging around at or the several areas still worked.
