The First Bonne Terre Mine Expedition was on August 12, 1995.
The Mine is located in Bonne Terre, Missouri; about an hour Southwest of St. Louis in the foot hills of the Ozark Mountains. The team included just Sherrie, Dana and I. We stayed in an old railroad car that was transformed into a lush room. Inside the mine we traveled down a distance of 100+ feet through big rooms of tall pillars and winding paths before we even got to the water. At the edge of the water was a platform with a series of tanks and an air compressor. Tenders helped us with our gear on the dock. We did three dives on Saturday the 12th and one on Sunday the 13th, before driving back home.
