Oscura Mine Maintenance Project
This was a small construction project to construct a bat gate with culvert at an abandoned coal mine adit. The site is located along Highway 54 approximately 15 miles south of Carrizozo, NM. There is no longer a road directly to the mine site so materials and tools will need to be hand-carried almost 1/3 of a mile.
