Ya it has two openings at the entrance and goes about 100yards? Maybe less, to an exit across the mountain. It was all one level with some parts going off. It was the biggest mine I have been in and a local told us a story how Henry Ford owned the mine for a little while and how there use to be many buildings which housed the miners just by the mine. All that is left are foundations, old wagon paths, and this impressive mine.
