Sterling Hill Mine

  Through the resources of crew member David Steinberg, Author of: Hiking the Road to Ruins, a get togethor was arranged with Dick and Bob Hauck to visit the Sterling Hill Mining Museum in Ogdensberg, NJ.  ABM was shown seldom seen parts of the Sterling Hill Mine Complex. The time spent with Dick was generous and invaluable, and afforded us excellent photographic opportunity.
