I think the only thing we discovered was that it was very deep and that there was water at the bottom. No signs of any mineral veins either. Smile IP: 213.205.194.159

I (re)discovered and confirmed that all mines other than slate are cold, wet, nasty places to be avoided at all costs. Guns

I got about 5 minutes into the video before giving up the will to live, sorry. That camera constantly spinning is enough to cause a headache.

I noticed it but without some context (like, which mine it is), it's not all that interesting. Tell us where it is, so we know what we're looking at, if it's been explored already etc.
