The Hull Mine,
The Fluorescent Wall was discovered January of 2017 by a friend of the museum, Phil Smith whose dedication to discovery is second to none. Phil's curiosity motivated him to encourage Allen to look for fluorescent minerals within the mine. What they found was a jaw-dropping “Eureka!” moment!
Further investigation of other fluorescent mine sites led to the understanding of just how unique the Hull Mine is. Understanding the quantity, quality, and, variety of fluorescing minerals within the mine, the decision to develop this enlightening tour was made.
In preparation for the tour, the Armstrongs along with many energetic volunteers have worked diligently restoring the surrounding buildings and shoring up the mine. minerals can bring to you.Located at the unique geological formation at the base of the volcanic core known as Castle Dome Mt., the Hull Mine and its tour completes a picture of life as it was in Castle Dome City and the Mining District.
