The Abandoned Mine

The abandoned mine stretches quite further and contains no exit point. Instead, each door you encounter will not be accessible—leaving you with only a straight path to walk on. The mine consists of two diverted paths: One to its left and the other leading right. Various mining tools will be found while taking a stroll inside the mine.

Moreover, an important fact to keep in mind is that the door of the mine will barge only with a weapon that can deliver a heavy and explosive impact. Explicitly, you can use bombs, machine guns, or RPGs to break the entrance door.

Although the door will be destroyed to make your way in, it would still require to be broken down again in case of an exit. The abandoned mine has no other exits, just some dead ends. Once you have progressed a bit further in the mine, the door at the entrance will respawn.

You can only enter the abandoned mine playing the Next-Gen version of GTA 5. The game’s previous versions will only consist of an outlook of the mine. Meaning the players can only observe the site from the outside and will not be able to explore it from the inside.

Abandoned Mine in Great Chaparral

The abandoned mine is located in the Great Chaparral of Los Santos County. It is an abandoned site alluring for those wishing to explore the map. The mine is linked with a side story event, “murder mystery.”

This means you will encounter a dead body inside the mine while exploring it. Regarding the exploration, carrying a flashlight along should be considered mandatory.

Mystery Murder

Upon exploring the mine, you will find the dead body of “Isaac.” Along with the corpse, you will also find a film canister. Once you have found the dead body, it will mark the end of the mystery murder side story. You will also be awarded for solving the mystery with something quite peculiar.

This app allows you to take pictures and upload them to the Rockstar Social Club. For this purpose, you need to have an account on Social Club.

For the PC and latest consoles, the image is captured with high-quality resolution ( 960 x 536 ). Whereas the old consoles capture the images on low resolution ( 640 x 360 ) and have a limited capacity of storing images up to 96.

The abandoned mine is also referred to as the Ghost mine. The rumors about the ghost in the abandoned mine are yet to be confirmed. And yes, this is just a rumor, not an actual appearance of some spooky spirit. However, this rumor was not spread without any evidence. Once you have entered the abandoned mine, there might be a chance for you to hear someone laughing out loud quite insanely.
