2018.05.06 Abandoned mine

This is an abandoned mine. Outside in the fields. Just a ten minute walk from where we live. No fences, no signs. The pit is covered by an iron netting. The wooden gauntree is so putrefied that it moves on the wind.

If you walk through the field here, now and again you will find fenced off holes in the ground. Less developed mines. This place is not far away from where the Roman mines of Mazzarón are. There, until the sixties of the last century, zinc, lead, silver and aluminum have been excavated. What was mined on this spot is not clear.
