Disclaimer: This is not a post about a discovered secret hidden entrance. It is, however, a video of how easily an entrance can be hidden in plain
sight that even ground observation could easily miss.
There is a YouTube channel about a guy who bought the Cerro Gordo Gold Mine and from time to time I like to check in to see what he finds. I just
happened to catch up today and found it very interesting that one of the main entrances to one of the mines is literally hidden in plain sight. I got
me thinking about the million odd posts we've all discussed over the years about "secret entrances".
In this video you could walk right by this entrance and never see it. It's even undetectable by aerial observation due to the very long and perpetual
shadow cast by the massive rock slab. In short...very easy to hide a secrete entrance if this is one of the methods used.
Jump to the 3:11 mark in the video to see where the entrance of the mine is located. There is about 10 seconds of good ground and
aerial video showing how impossible it would be to detect.
Here is a still from the video showing the entrance to the mine. Even with a drone you wouldn't see this entrance. It just looks like a random rock

An adit is fairly easy to conceal if it is not the primary entrance to the underground structure. And the reason is because the tailings can be
removed from inside the mine / structure. But somewhere there has to be an entrance where all the mine tailings are removed, and no sizable structure
is going to be excavated without the use of heavy equipment to minimally haul away the tailings.
I like to photograph old mines, and I rarely look for entrances, but rather tailing piles and signs of equipment or tracks to deal with the tailings.
This is usually a dead giveaway, and I've never seen an exception to this.
That's a valid point and I know what tailings are, however, I don't see any indication this entrance is an entrance other than the leftover barbed
wire. Point being is I were droning an area "looking" for something I would fly right by this place and not even give it a second thought.
