Keith- That sounds like a 5 star tour- Thanks for posting.  I knew that all the mines and buildings were close together--but had no Idea that they were scrunched! Must have been a lot of instances where one company dug--either by accident, or shudder, on purpose, into some one else's claim.
I have always marveled that surveyors could tell--with any accuracy--where they were underground--but they did vis, the Alpine Tunnel. Dug from both ends, thru granite--with one bore having a curve inside-- and missed each other by what-a couple inches?

Herb.
