Drone Footage Captured At This Abandoned Montana Silver Mine Is Truly Grim

Montana’s mining history helped shape the state it is today. The Philipsburg mining district was especially bustling back in the day (and still is). The Scratch Awl Silver Mine was one of the first mines discovered in the area, and thanks to this drone footage, you can get an up-close-and-personal look at the abandoned remains.

The mine is on private property, but thanks to a drone and a few cameras, YouTube user davidegg22 is able to give us a tour.
