Heritage Silver Trail
Site 2: The Glory Hole

The Glory Hole

The 'Glory Hole' by definition is an open pit connected to underground workings. By this method ore mined from the sides of the pit was passed downward to a level below where it was loaded into cars and trammed to the nearby Townsite shaft for hoisting.

Along the walls of the Glory Hole, you get a rare glimpse of a cross section of mine workings.
