WINTER CARNIVAL UNDERGROUND
Ever wonder what is going on in the mines during the winter months? My curiosity was answered when I ran across photos of some beautiful ice sculptures only Mother Nature could make. It doesn’t get any better than that. Take a look and see if you agree.
All of these photos came from the Calumet and Hecla Photograph Collection MS003 Box 12 Negative 119-21. Prints are available by request and the collection can be viewed here in the Archives reading room.

These are fantastic photos – how cool! Nice tie in with Winter Carnival (above ground).
Great idea! and excellent image choices!!! Thanks for the reminder of Tech’s heritage underground!!
Cool! The Arctic Coal Company also had interesting winter interiors in their coal mines in Arctic Spitsbergen. Check out MS018-001-004 in the online collection. The delicate frosty interior is a strange contrast to the dirty black coal of the mine.
