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!

      Since 1961, a one-room grocery store has been operating in the countryside. In the other part of the building lived the shop owners. Later, the store belonged to other people, until 1992, when it left the Russian government, it was closed because it no longer met the requirements of the store. People were still living in the building, when they died, he was abandoned

      A large abandoned iron mine with miles of tunnels and several levels. We've been here 3 times and still not seen a fraction of it. Yet we walked 20 Km in there. There should be some big vehicles in there but only found some tracks. But we found  a lot of little things like old miner boot with real nails in the soles,a small horse shoe and imprints of horseshoe's and miner boots. From some places it took more 1.5 Hr just to get to the only entry. And unfortunately at the last visit we saw that effort are been made to seal the entry up. A big wire mesh was placed, a wheelbarrow and some mounting materials were present there but no workers. I think it was raining to hard that day.. Probably  the entry is closed now.
      But sure fun to explore there an been off the grid for some hours.

      A couple of days ago I went up into a local forest to search for a tiny old school.
      There are no location details online so it kind of was like looking for a needle in a haystack so finding something was better than nothing at all
