The Hard Times Mine tour is more than a tour -
it's an experience!
From the very beginning of the tour you know that this is something
special. From the moment you meet your tour guide who has worked as a miner
for most of his life, to the kitting-out in overalls and cap lamps, already
you're having fun and can't wait for what comes next.
Descending in to the mine in the Alimak Cage, you begin to explore the
history of mining as the guides enthral you with their stories of the good
times and the hard times that are had working deep under the earth. See how
the tunnels are formed and shaped by the majestic boom drills and mucking
units. Get up close with the machinery and try your hand at the air-leg
drill, and feel the earth rumble with the firing of the blast face. These
magnificent experiences will stay with you for ever.
