Apex #5

Project type

Mine Site Visit



The Apex No. 5 Mine is located at an elevation of 3000 feet in the Money Creek Mining District of King County WA.

The Apex #5 was driven prior to 1925 and consisted of 1200 feet of underground workings terminating somewhere under the aerial tramway. The #5 adit remained collapsed and undiscovered for roughly 90 years until being re-opened briefly in the summer of 2012. We were fortunate enough to be a lucky few who have had the opportunity to explore the historic workings of this piece of the Apex mines system. The mine collapsed again in the fall/winter of the same year and remains inaccessible to this day.
