22 Journey Through The Semi-Flooded Mine

Journey Through The Semi-Flooded Mine

Today we are going to visit an abandoned mine that is, according to the legend, -880 meters deep. The mine has not been functioning for a couple of years and is conserved meaning that all the exits and entrances are blocked. Who knows maybe there is not enough air inside…

This is an entrance filled with concrete. So, if you want to get in, you will need a flame cutter.

After the access was obtained it became clear that the hole is at least 200 meters deep.

The descent can be long and boring. At great depth humidity is very high. To avoid a shower of ground waters one needs a costume of chemical protection.

The abandoned system is somehow connected to the acting one preventing the area from flooding.

The mine is in a very bad condition. The floor can fall down any time.

Dates on found packs showed that people had not visited the place for years.

    Sir, about the english:
    “Today we’ll visit an ..” is not correct sentence.
    “Today we going to visit an ….” is correct.
    Best regards!

  2. Unknown says:

    Where’s that?

  3. Hirsh says:

    Get the hell out of there and seal it back up. Urban exploring is great but this is just plain stupid. *shakes head*

  4. Matt says:

    where’s that mine? maybe in Siberia? Amazing photos!!

  5. EngrishBob says:

    Perfect place to go if you want to disappear without trace and end it all.

  6. Comrade says:

    What kind of mine that was and where it is located?

  7. VIktor says:

    It looks like it could collapse any minute. If anything were to happen nobody would find them for years.

      For years not: forever!
      No one will do an excavation just to retrieve dead bodies in case of a collapse. They’ll stay buried.

    Brilliant. Some guy (from Bulgaria) is correcting someone’s bad english. If you are correcting mistakes at least do it properly yourself – Today we ARE going to…

    “Today we ARE going to..” if the plans are “hard”… :)

    In Russia we have many places like this mine. Some ghost towns near my city look most beautiful of megapolices, lol.

  11. wormster says:

    WOW!! as a mine explorer that has ticked all the right boxes, I’d love to see this mine, it looks very exciting – over here we’re used to a little bit of the gasaxe to get into some places!

  12. Mick The Miner says:

    Hmm, a very dangerous trip indeed. Roof collapse is the least of the problems. It’s those flooded areas that are most dangerous. What’s that “bad egg” smell? Oh, it’s gone now, so that’s alright. WRONG!!! You can smell Hydrogen Sulphide gas (H2S) in low concentrations, but in high concentrations it destroys your sense of smell in seconds and will kill you stone dead a few SECONDS later. Yes, really. Got to take care in these places.

    • Robert says:

      just a tip: a long time ago our miners takes singing birds for this risk. once they had overturned the miners see that the concentration was too high for them and fled from the tunnels.

    • OLUT says:

      They don’t need to worry… it’s Russia! Every abandoned building, mine, dwelling, town is required to have at least 500 gas masks lying around in the mess!

    Looks like the blue things are copper oxide, so it can be a copper mine. (MOTO proof :D)
    no more information on this mine? (location, name…)

  14. jipeg says:

    GTranslate => “Abandonned iron ore mine”

  15. Mummeli says:

    ‘Omg, there’s this danger, and that, and even possibly that danger in there..’ – that’s why we dont see similar pictures from a US based abandoned mines… *let the boasting begin* :)

    • Hirsh says:

      Admitted American urban and other explorers seem to value their lives and safety more so then many Russians do. No idea why that is but make of it what you will. Personally i don’t think it’s such a bad thing that they don’t take crazy risks just because they can.

    Why hasn’t anyone said ‘this looks like Detroit!’ yet? ;)
