This cache is available ONLY when the Mine site is open for visitors. The site is operated in the summer on a limited schedule which is another reason it is Seldom Seen. Please visit their website at link for their current schedule. The site is off-limits when entrance gate is closed.
The Seldom Seen Mine offers a relatively complete mining site illustrating the operation of a small scale family run bituminous drift mine. Original support structures are intact and a variety of equipment, from other mining operations, is on display. The Mine, originally known as Miller Run No 8, was operated from 1939 through 1963 with peak production of 33,538 tons by a work force of 37 miners in 1951.
Visitors are encouraged to take the underground tour but it is not required in order to find the cache.
