Here is the Cliff with the mine. A very important thing to note is the current in the water. If you fall in you wont be found again.

The read star is where we came to the cliff by hiking through a field. The arrows show our route. The green star is just below the mine entrance.

After an accident the mine was blocked off. With the proper precautions to make sure no one falls in the water this is a very cool place to go.
