Into the Heart of Darkness

Hurtling down a mine shaft deep towards the core of the earth you have only your headlamp to illuminate what is before your eyes! A truly unique work experience that allows a chance to step into the boots of a dirty, sweaty, dangerous job.  The build up of the experience begins when going through the medical check and safety briefing. Next you must dress up in the work uniform and check out your gear (emergency respirator and headlamp).

Starting down the un-improved infrastructure of the emergency/ventilation shaft gives a haunted cave experience. No light, abandoned stuff, and a narrow winding path eventually lead to the main work area.

In the main work area see the internal rail system haul ore in train carts as sparks shower from the power cables connected above.  Face some claustrophobia and crawl thru an Ore vein and watch a giant drill gouge at the rock above.  Sorry, no dynamite blasts when tourists are around! Finish with a trip to the top of the mine tower and a panoramic view of the city. Finishing the tour with the extreme height to counter the extreme depth just experienced created a strange feeling inside me.

Much personal care was taken by the staff of Lenin mine going over things and keeping it as safe as possible.  The hero’s of labor I met remind me how thankful I am for having a job in a modern building with access to the outside LOL!
