     History
    Its an old mine on the corner of an island, it has been abandoned for a long time. All thats left is ruins. There is no tunnel, probably filled in. All though, I almost think they didn't make one.

    Edit: Uranium Mine with 442 foot deep shaft. First founded as the Beaucage Mining Co. and began quickly changing ownership. Entrance to the shaft was capped when mining/processing uranium proved unprofitable in 1960.
     Media Coverage

     Future Plans
    It will probably sit there, until theres nothing left. I give it two more years till the stack falls over.
