It's the Conco Galloway Quarry; they look to be running a small amount of surface mining there with a loader and a few haul trucks. The old underground mine has about nine portals spread over two levels, most of which are backfilled (backfilled enough to prevent vehicle access, but there is enough space at the top of the backfill piles to squeeze in, easily.

There is almost certainly a ramp between the levels. I know for sure that a ventilation raise exists north of the pit. It may be an interesting one to visit; I'm halfway considering just asking the mine manager. I have my MSHA certs and PPE...

If it can't be grown, it must be mined. If it was mined, I can find it.
