Mineral Peak

Aug 12th, 2012

This is our last trip to Mineral Peak. On the way, we stopped at the old ruins of Britannia Copper Mine power plant. From there we came back to Britannia Creek Fsr and followed the route up to get to Jane’s Basin.  This was area where they used to dig and move earth.  We decided to go further up.  That was best decision.  We started climbing up the mountain in our jeeps. The road started getting narrower.  We had to some sharp hair pin turns which had some pucker factor built in it.  One side was mountain and the other side was a sharp 1000 ft drop.  Once we get to the top we were surprised to find out that the top of mountain was big crater from all the digging.  The scenery was breath taking.  The peak itself is like a big crater or a big hole on top of the mountain. It must be all the digging for the minerals.

  • The dirt in the glory hole is sludge left over from the Wastewater Treatment Plant after it has neutralized the acidity from the contaminated water leeching from the old mne. Just a heads up not to get any in your mouth etc…

    • Very useful information to share. Thanks for sharing. I didn’t know that…
