So, we'll likely be going to the Pea Ridge mine south of Sullivan, MO sometime this fall. There are two headframes, the dry house, office, and a huge shop building to explore. The complex is pretty damn impressive.

It's kind of up in the air how we'll be approaching it, as the last company to own it doesn't exist anymore, and I'm not sure who, if anyone, controls it. In other words, I'll hit up a couple leads and see about outright getting permission (if there's still an actual owner), otherwise just assume it's abandoned and nobody cares, and go in.

Anyone potentially interested? This is a non-underground, no-PPE-required trip by nature.

Isn't it owned by Alberici or is that all over now?

Alberici partnered with another company to try and reopen it; the partner company went under. I don't know if Alberici has/had any ownership of the site; it is a construction company and does not operate mines to my knowledge.

UPDATE: Alberici was providing design-build services up to mine commissioning, with no production interest or stated ownership.

UPDATE: I have emailed the most recent owner with a functioning website. Hopefully he will get back to me sometime soon.

Why?

Edit: Nevermind. Didn't realize you did mention going with the permission angle at first.

I just got off the phone with the owner; it sounds like the surface ownership is changing; this one will have to wait for about sixty days until that process is complete. I've got other sites in the pipeline anyways.
