This is a short walk through the old Ptarmigan Tom mine. Fences were put up around the the hazardous areas in 2017.

An easy stroll though an abandoned minesite from the 80's. Hazardous areas are fenced off. The area is scheduled to be cleaned up by the government. The trails are the gravel roads through the site. Lots of artifacts to be gleamed from the ground, maybe some gold from the remaining stockpile.
