Ghost Mine features some interesting historical and present-day information about the mining culture, and reveals many of the superstitions that guide miners while underground. However, many of their legends and beliefs are exploited by the investigators, who are looking at this job as a way to lay the foundation for establishing a new area of investigative research.

Some of the exchanges between the miners and the investigators feel a little rehearsed, and some of the miners go from being paranormal skeptics to believers just a bit too quickly. But the combination of mining stories, creepy video footage, and other effects tells an entertainingly eerie story.
