Interesting. ..

  the Emerald” was shut down 43 years ago — but not because the mine ran dry. Rather low commodity prices and heavy taxes forced the previous owner Canex (Canadian Exploration Company) to close the site and 1973 then option the property 20 years later.

Hard to get the grasp on the size of the mine. That is a dog in the last picture. The pillar next to him is ~90' tall

That's a great mine to explore. Pretty massive. You can walk in the Jersey portal and walk out the dodger, its about a 2-3 hour walk if you taking pics and looking around . Another good one to check out in the area is the HB mine just on the north slope of sheep creek, it has several open portals, well it did last I was there.
