First off be respectful to all areas when off-roading and be very respectful when playing around abandoned mines. The Blue Mines have sinkholes that are full of cold water if you fall in you could get very hurt or worse. If you plan on going in and exploring make sure you take the proper gear with you ie flashlight proper footwear and warm clothing. Read on I have included some history of the blue mines.

The mine consists of several adits operated for a single year, 1934, and has been virtually abandoned ever since. British Columbia's Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources refers to the mine as and states that 5 metric tonnes of ore were mined yielding 560 grams (18 oz t) of silver and 156 grams (5 oz t) of gold. The total horizontal length of the mine is approximately 90 metres.

The mine is known to many Kelowna locals, and a gravel road leading past the mine is regularly maintained. The entrance to the mine often contains pooled water, but the interior is relatively dry and contains many undisturbed geological formations
