Silver Eye Mine

Entrance of Silver Eye Mine


No known access restrictions. Close to Good Luck mine. On two main levels, with plenty of interesting tramming levels leading to and from stopes. The lower level is no longer accessible from the surface and the way into the mine is via the upper level. Approach as you would for Good Luck Mine. Cross the footbridge and follow the path. At the first sign-posted junction, where you would turn right for Good Luck, keep straight on the ascending path, past the now blocked entrance to Silver Eye's lower level, to a steep bend by a tree where a thin path cuts back and up to the right (roughly south west). Follow this path to the entrance.
