This stonework tunnel ends at the precipice of a huge natural rift in the earth. The rocky ceiling is only twenty feet above, but the rift drops away into a fathomless black depth. Veins of silvery ore can be seen in the sides of the shaft.
Ancient mining equipment lines the walls, but the wooden platforms and walkways are rotten and unusable. Chains are attached to the ceiling of the shaft in a pulley system that used to lift ore from the depths. Most of the chains are rusted and many have broken. The area around the pit has been scored by gouges in the stone as if some giant claw once reached out of the pit
It has an ominous feel to it.
