At times, when you look at documentation, you'll find "back of the envelope" information. Here, Sam sketches the south east rib of the 45' lead SW, on 10/22/2007.
The second time I went down in the mine, I had the chance to be down for multiple hours. This gave me an opportunity to see far more, but also, with the second visit, it freed me up to video and photograph more.
On May 13, 2017, I had the exciting chance to tour the mine a second time. This video shows a portion of the wall that has been excavated at some previous point.
This video features a section of Morefield mine's 45' level, an area where the previous owner Bill Baltzley removed the half ton of minerals that became the Morefield mine exhibit in the Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals.
As a long time resident of Amelia Courthouse, John shares his experiences of coming to Morefield mine multiple times, in addition to his opportunity of going down into the mine, in this video.📽️
Mark Wylie, one of Morefield mine's miners (and a collector/ photographer), describes various elements in a single area of the mine, in this 📽️ video on YouTube, Myriad of Minerals.; you may want to open this in a separate tab.
