View looking into the mine

Johnson's Cove Mine, Yancey Co., North Carolina, USA

The image shows the central part of the mine. Part of the large cut was flooded and the rest of the cut has been eroded significantly. Nonetheless, high rock walls stand on both sides of parts of the cut. The walls of the cut stand at least 30' high and are covered in places by mosses and ferns.

View of back wall of large open cut

Yancey Mine, Yancey Co., North Carolina, USA

This picture was taken near the entrance to the largest of the three open cuts at the Yancey Mine. The wall seen across the background of the image was at least 75' tall, perhaps more. The cut was surrounded by tall walls like the one shown in the photo except for an entrance facing an old mine road. The space was rather arena-like. The picture was taken on the 17th of June, 2018.

View of the lower mine entrance

Moccasin Gap Mine, Del Rio Mining District, Cocke Co., Tennessee, USA

The lower entrance to the mine is noticeably wider and taller than the upper entrance. The workings here are not as deep, though. This adit continues 40' back into the hillside. Three small drifts have been excavated to the right of the adit. It seems as if they once were deeper, but have been filled in by substantial debris accumulated over the years. The picture was taken on the 25th of July, 2018.

View of the upper mine entrance

Moccasin Gap Mine, Del Rio Mining District, Cocke Co., Tennessee, USA
