I was astounded at the amount of equipment and the number of buildings that had been abandoned when mining operations ceased. Rusting pieces of equipment were visible ell around the community and you can view some of them in several of the photos uploaded to my Blog today.
These days governments and mining companies are more aware of the importance of cleaning up sites to minimize the impact on the environment. I am not sure if Tilt Cove has been cleaned up since my visit, but I suspect that it hasn't.
Feel free to share today's photos with family and friends.
