About: The Taber Mine
Nice old mine it's to bad you never got to go in. Be neet to see what is left.
Any idea how to The Scout got there? Going by the cracked windshield and the flat tires, it’s been there a while.

The object embedded in the tree was a plumbers pipe vice it can be mounted to a pole with a chain all of that's now covered by the tree.the part visible is the tee handle attached to the upper or outer adjustable jaw,that slides in a u shaped casting
have to reduce the price to sell it … north west of Reno is too cold :)
Was watching this video and I am wondering what breed of dog Mr. Nibbles is? He sure is cute, but too fast for me to get a look at his face.
Loved the video. If its for sale for that much, given the state of the buildings and machinery, then there must be plenty of ore left in the mine
Ah the international Scout, preferred vehicle of the hard core survivalist.
I kinda get the feeling that the mine is in the process of being scrapped. 😥
Just wondering if there was ever sign of a headframe or a vertical shaft. The reason I'm asking is because of what appears to be a man-lift by the safe and steam boiler ( 5:55
on video ) I recognize the cams that would grip a wooden rail for braking or holding the lift in place. In the frame at 5:55
the cams are rotated almost 90 degrees out of position. Those "lobes" would be parallel to the guide board/rail and would be held open by some mechanism or rope attatched to those two chains on each camshaft. They would be spring loaded so if the occupant let go of the mechanism the lift would stop going down. (it could go up though) Those cams would rotate and the serrated edges would grip the rail harder as more downward force was applied. I say all of this because once waay back in my younger days, I explored an old grain elevator with a smaller version of a lift like that. The single occupant would step on a pedal that opened the cams and would pull a stationary rope to lift or lower the counter weighted car.
I thought I'd seen all of your videos but apparently not. Too bad the adit was locked but chances are if it had been broken into there wouldn't be near as much equipment still there. The riveted ore carts date before 1925 and the advent of welding. Nice video. I could almost smell the evergreens.
Doyou ever actually enter a mine?
She has good ore and grade.
