Don’t Drink inside of a Mine, it might cost you a year in jail.
I assume this is probably due to potential for a cave in? Or maybe they are just tired of the teenagers hanging out inside caves and drinking.
35-10-402. Entering mines, metallurgical works or sawmills while intoxicated; taking intoxicants into related structures.
Whoever shall, while under the influence of intoxicating liquor, enter any mine, smelter, metallurgical works, machine shops or sawmills, or any of the buildings connected with the operation of the same in Wyoming where miners or workmen are employed or whoever shall carry or haul any intoxicating liquor into the same or any logging or grading camp shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be fined in any sum not exceeding five hundred dollars ($500.00) to which may be added imprisonment in the county jail for a term not exceeding one (1) year.
Most mines in Wyoming are “open pit”. No caves or mine shafts but lots of explosives and huge machinery.
