Image This is some of the ore from of the inside walls of the shaft. The shaft was only twenty feet deep and very narrow.

Even with the blurry pictures, the silver looks pretty :)

YES indeed! That silver is very pretty in the rock like that!

I'd like to have a close up look at sometime, and see if I can snap a better photo of it with my macro cam Kurt.

Best,

Jim

sounds good Jim, I hope sant brings me a nice camera for xmass this year. I am going back to the area next weekend, I did not have any tools with me besides my trusty leatherman and a thirty pound digging bar. The digging bar was to long to use in the shaft. The shaft is shaped like a carrot and is narrow at the bottom.

Best Wishes
Kurt Painter
