Day 430 of retirement » 273 Comet-L1230974

The old Comet gold mine. The story is that a prospector was searching for gold all round this knob and found nothing. One day he decided to climb over the middle of the knob. By pure chance he stumbled across gold 3/4 of the way up the hill.
All the gold found was in the top half of the knob. See the tin shed in the middle of the pic, well all the gold was mined above that line. The top half of the knob is riddled with mine shafts.
