Lewis,

Exploring Mines is kinda like going to a Nevada Brothel, in fact the state of Nevada has a public awareness program to inform the public of the dangers found in both, its called "Stay Out Stay Alive"!

Since you have a Caravan in your group and you want to see some cool mining machinery I would recondmend the sites of Skidoo, the Wildrose Charcoal Kilns, and the Borax Museum at Furance Creek.

We have explored many sites in Saline and Panamint and Death Valleys and have found ore buckets still hanging on the tram cables and ore cars in and out of mines.
These kind of places require a bit of research and effort on your part in order to find them.
We have discovered some great sites with cabins and cool stuff that are not even on any maps.

Exploring old mines is very dangerous, we do go in, but only with ropes, lights, and back-up lights, air sensors, and a team of friends who are experienced cave and mine explorers, one of which is on the San Bernardino Cave/Mine Rescue Team.

Dont go in a mine if you are not experienced!
There are many dangers, cave-ins, bad air, vertical shafts, and it's even possible that liberal democrates may even be found hiding in there!

So remember, if you ever get the urge to go inside a mine or brothel; Remember "STAY OUT STAY ALIVE"!
