The mine is in the Harquahala Mountains, East of Salome, AZ. Not far from the Harquahala Peak Observatory. The mountain range is riddled with mine shafts.
At one location there is a vertical shaft on a small clearing that you could not see until you drove right up to it. No signs. The shaft was big enough and deep enough to swallow a Cherokee. Gotta exercise caution when driving up to some of these places.

We have some of those vertical shafts in our area too. One I almost walked into was in a thicket. Another did have a vehicle in the bottom. Lowered my son on a winch line to check it out
