I explored around Holder Mine in Citrus Wildlife Management Area located in Withlacoochee State Forest and found some interesting things left over from the old mining operations. At one time phosphate was mined here but long since then nature has reclaimed the area so it’s nice to experience the trails around the mine. Along the way I found some old pillars and a large foundation near one of the pits.
The area where the pillars are seem to link into the old railroad grade that passes by. There were a couple of them left around two feet tall and you could see where something was attached to them. Closer to the area by the railroad grade was a series of larger pyramid-shaped pillars as well. These may have been used as some kind of foundation to something. Maybe a water tower for example but I am not sure.
As I explored near the bottom of the mine where it has filled up with water I saw a large foundation down there. You could see where some kind of structure stood on top of it. If you have any suggestions on what some of this stuff could be feel free to comment. I posted some photos and be sure to watch my videos for a good look around the area.
