*A.C.E. (Attributes, Characteristics, Engineering).  What is naturally present underground?  Stable temperature, stable humidity, security, etc.  These are the very same A.C.E. that developers spend $100's per SF to construct in new buildings above ground when, funny enough, they are already naturally present underground.  

Q: Have you seen/heard of other ideas on how to "repurpose" old mining properties whether underground or above ground like rock quarries, sand pits, etc?
