Sciences - Minreral Exploration

  Mine exploration is a hobby in which people visit abandoned mines and quarries (and sometimes working mines) to explore, document, and record, including by surveying and photography. In this respect, mine exploration could be considered a specialist branch of industrial archaeology, but in many ways it is closer to caving, with many participants being actively involved in exploring mines and caves. Mine exploration uses a similar type of equipment to caving, including helmets, head lamps, Wellington boots and sometimes a specialised over-suit.
