Hello! I write here for the first time. I'm an explorer from Russia and I'd like to communicate with people all over the world;)

I hope It would be interesting for you to watch some places in Russia. I'm keen on not only abandoned places but working industry as well. Sorry I'm not so exellent in photography and English;)

Today I wanna show you the siderite mine in Chelyabinsk region.

Actually It's not abandoned but some drifts are not in use.

We climbed down the minus 80 horizont and walked though the tunnel.

We met friendly miners there. At first they were scared because we could get into troubles (there were blasting in this drift) but then they allowed us to take photos of their electric locomotive and the process of loading it with ore.

After that we walked to the abandoned shaft-sinking set.

Then we had some rest in this room and climbed back;)

This is the ventilation pile driver where we penetrated into the mine.

I hope I did everything right because It's difficult for me to understand the site sometimes:D

Thank you!
