Default Burke mountain Mine

Hi everybody. I know there is already a post about this from about 6 years back, but does anybody actually know if or where there are mine shafts at burke mountain? I know of the old gravel mine and the rambo first blood area and all the stuff left up there and have been to the cabins many times. Has anyone actually found an opening or anything else interesting?

As far as I know there haven't been any underground mining on Burke mtn, only gravel pit.
You can check with Minfile if you want, but I'm pretty sure there is no mine shafts there.

There is an old mine shaft up from Query road near where the road is gated... I believe its up along Munroe creek. But be very careful. From what i've heard it goes down very steep and the entrance is mostly grown over, so one could get trapped quiet easily and not be found. :/ Not something you would want to go exploring in if I were you.

All mine sites past and current, as well as prospects and showings are listed in Minfile database. Minfile has no information about underground mines on Burke.
There is a list of quarries, prospects and showings in Burke\Pitt lake are (search by map, NTS map 092G07E):

The only underground mine in that area is Viking, at the south end of Pitt lake on it's eastern shore. It was in operation in 1916.

There is also a prospect "Standard" on the west shore of Pitt lake with one shallow shaft.

But nothing on Burke.
Here is a link to Minfile map 092G with all mineral occurrences marked.
