|Tips for Abandoned Mines??|

|Hello to all on the forum. |
If anyone can tell, i kinda have a thing for the underground, Drains, Mines, ext.
I live in Colorado Springs, and travel up to cripple creek quite often, and i run across many mines on my hikes. Its usually a small hole, but whenever i do find something major, half the time its a shaft, and half the time its a horizontal tunnel straight into the hillside.
Any tips for exploring the horizontal type of mine?? anyone else do it?? I am kinda new at it, and never have gone into much of anything further than the sunlight can reach.
I have gone in with a helmet and a spare torch a few times before, but these few times have been my only
Any one have suggestions for gear i might want to take into mines??
I'm also very curious as to the shafts, due to my position of no climbing knowledge on abseiling, i am not going to attempt to climb in, and even if i did, i would be nervous about entering the shaft.
Any tips, ideas, warnings, rants on the dangers i am accepting??
Thanks to all. I hope to post pics soon!
