    Default Castle Dome, AZ mining district

    I went out with a couple of friends yesterday to the Castle Dome area. One of them was a former miner in a Galenia mine a few miles north of the Castle Dome museum. We also went out to the Big Eye mine. Neither are listed on the map. How does a person submit information and pictures? Thank you.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/limeyellowfellow/There is about 3 water tanks is various stages of decay, a double room shower house and a cabin. The cabin is in great shape. There are several piles of wood which were once buildings. At the mine portal there is a falling down building which has a couple pieces of machinery. One looks to be a forge. There is what I would call a classifier which has partially fallen down. It has 2 chutes and sits at the end of a narrow guage rail where the ore carts would be dumped. The narrow guage has come apart outside, but extends for a good distance in the main adit. I will REMEMBER to take a camera next time to get some pictures.

    Update Jan 9, 2009. The link is to my flickr page. There are 36 photos there of the Big Eye Mine. I am trying to find out if there are limits on photos posted to this web site. -John
