Rail Track

Sheeprock Mine, Newton Mining District, Tushar Mts, Beaver Co., Utah, USA

This rail is coming straight out of the side of the opening. It's a good 15 feet above ground level. Clearly there was an opening there at one time.

Underground Entrance

Sheeprock Mine, Newton Mining District, Tushar Mts, Beaver Co., Utah, USA

Partially collapsed entrance in the second cut. It's much smaller and this is at the top.

I found iron-staoined quartz clusters to 1/2 an inch long. Some have a smoky core. Massive pale amethyst chunks are littered around the dump. Some have fortification patterns. Good lapidary material.
