Recommended - The Stirling Mine Museum. Ogdenburg, N.J.

The mine was closed in 1986. It is now open as a museum.

Very psychedelic!  Are these small rocks or is this a large cavern. I'm lost without a frame of reference.

I think that's where the local elementary school kids go on field trips.

It is about 40ft across and probably 25 ft high. It is the excavation from the mine where the ore ran out. It is about 500 feet into the mine and about 50 ft deep. So it was just left there as the miners went deeper into the mine -- 1,400 ft deep.
