Wild West Alaska

I don't know where this is, but seems it would be a pretty stoke-filled moment to come upon this scene on a road trip! #mountains

Ghost Towns & Abandoned Mines in Alaska, Arizona and Arkansas

At its peak in 1941, the company operating Independence Mine employed 204 men, blasted almost 12 miles of tunnels, and produced 34,416 ounces of gold worth $ 1,204,560; today $ 17,208,000.  World War Two rendered gold mining nonessential, although Independence Mine continued to operate due to the presence of sheelite (a source of tungsten, which is a strategic metal).  But supplies were low and the mine closed in 1943.
