A Competition for Mining Bugs!

A Competition for Mining Bugs!

This is a competition for mining bugs which is free to enter and the winner will get a rather nice bottle of wine. All you have to do to win this fabulous prize is the following:

Name the town where this mine resides.

The above picture was taken very close to a once famous mine which is still producing handsomely today. The mines history dates as far back as 1878. Have you got it yet?

If we do not get a winner pronto, we will post another new clue every day or so making the competition easier to win. However there are some sharp eyed, well travelled professionals out there so take a shot at it, only one shot per day though!

Please add your answer in the form of a comment so that others can see the time and date of your entry just in case there is more than one correct answer.

Good luck.
