Limni Mine is an abandoned Copper and Sulphur Mine, which at some point in the future may become a golf course. With that in mind we thought we better take a look around before the golf balls start flying...
We began our visit at Pelathousa. This is a semi-abandoned village on the hills near Limni Mine. Actually, to make this blog, we visited the site a number of times, and there are easier ways to get to the mine than from this location. Your best bet is to come up from Limni Pier.
We start here though, because you get a nice view of the mine.
We took this shot a couple of months ago. There was still some water in the lake then.
The slag heaps are fascinating places, full of a myriad of interesting rocks and minerals. This odd lump looks very unusual though.
However, before we investigated the main mine, we took a slight diversion when we reached the bottom of the valley. We turned right, and drove through some trees before stumbling upon some more excavations.
