A Group Of Friends Found an Abandoned Mine And Decided to Go In And It’s Creepy

A man and his friends stumbled across an old abandoned mineshaft in the Ural mountains of western Russia. The mountains are lined with abandoned mines that were used to extract ore for the military during WWII. These mines have been abandoned since shortly after the war and hold many dangers and could collapse at any time. They decided to venture in anyways and what they found is astonishing. Here is the set of photos they were able to capture in this creepy place that once supplied an army.

The majority of the mine is supported with logs which are now pretty much rotten offering very little support. Many parts of the mine they found have already collapsed making it near impossible to venture in any further. They went in anyways. Entire room and wall supports have crumbled meaning the mine could collapse at any moment. The tunnels have started to flood and erode because no pumps are working to keep it clear. Old mine carts are still full of ore like they quit working during a regular shift and were simply abandoned. The earth is slowly reclaiming the metal carts which were made with ore mined from these mountains. There are miles of unsafe tunnels lined with what used to be operational electricity conduits which are now rotting away. Some of the deeper shafts have been flooded with ground water and natural springs creating a very creepy scene.

They made a very minor attempt at blocking the entrance to the mine.

So much work went into this mine for the Russian army, only to leave it abandoned.

The more important shaft entrances are supported with concrete.

My guess is this was used as ore storage after it was mined.

Plants and algae in the cave have grown because of an abundance of minerals but they are all colorless because of zero light.

It’s amazing to think this place was once teeming with workers.

The minerals have been leaking from the ceiling for years, slowly swallowing anything on the floor.

I can’t tell if these guys are brave or complete idiots for venturing into this crumbling mine but either way I’m glad they did. These pictures are amazing and I don’t think I would have the guts to go that deep inside of an unsafe mountain.  Because they did I get to enjoy it from the safety of my computer. This is one creepy place and could collapse at any time.
