Abandoned mine shaft 1 is a location in the Ash Heap region of Appalachia in 2102.


This site marks possibly the first of many abandoned mine shafts in Appalachia. Located near the town of Welch, off of route 84, it provided a source of work to the many miners in the area, until either it's closure or the Great War.


The site consists of numerous wrecked or partially-buried vehicles, a section of collapsed walkway and a single Quonset hut. A weapons workbench can be found on the exterior of the hut, on the north side.

Entering the hut through the southern door, one finds an armor workbench to the right. A door on the northeastern side of the hut connects to a walkway descending into a large hole in the ground. At the bottom of the walkway is a large barrel-shaped structure with numerous pipes running off of it and an open top covered with a metal grating. The structure contains a glowing mass of unknown composition that spews smoke and embers into the air and is highly radioactive.

Notable lootEdit

  • One fusion core on a box inside the hut, near the east entrance.


Abandoned mine shaft 1 appears only in Fallout 76.
