Mining Equipment

We do find a lot of abandoned mining equipment, just laying around various areas of the property.

Carbide Lamp

One day my family and I were walking along what was Old Rouse Road to the east of the YMCA Building.   And our daughter noticed something shiny laying on the ground when  she picked it up we were amazed that it was this carbide lamp.
