But perhaps your old mine ruins are not as accessible as the ones in the UK?

Gold was discovered in Western Australia in the 1890's. The gold mining town of Kalgoorlie was established in 1894 following the discovery of gold in the area.

The areas around where gold was discovered are riddled with deep shafts going straight down into the ground but there are no building left.
The mines were hundreds of miles away from the populated city areas and in difficult terrain, resulting in the building being made with whatever materials they could get their hands on. So they didn't stand the test of time.
