* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' has the Broken Hill Mine map, a borhium mine that was the recent target of a monster attack. Now all that can be found of the miners are corpses and bloodstains, while the monster itself still lurks in the tunnels.

* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', the four find a map of Boidan Mine. When George expresses skepticism that they would want to waste time going to a mine, he's told that that old mines are full of adventure and treasure. This one in particular must have something interesting because it takes a rare and expensive jump gem to get there. Ultimately the four do go there, but they never make it into the mine because they discover that another party of adventurers has beaten them there. They simply wait for the adventurers to emerge with their spoils, and HilarityEnsues.

* Abandoned mines are all over the place in real life, often in remote or unexpected areas, but rarely completely abandoned because that's sorta frowned on by environmental agencies these days. Despite this, people in charge of remediating the damage done by the mining process will usually not be there on any particular given day. Needless to say, they are dangerous places. [[WhatAnIdiot Not that this stops anyone from exploring them just to show how brave they are, of course.]].

* Anyone doing any hiking in the North of England is well-advised to pay attention to the map when it says "sunken mine works" - some areas are lousy with them - the mines failed decades ago, but they are still dangerous to the unwise or unlucky.

*** Which goes to show that [[IncrediblyLamePun a mine is a terrible thing to waste]].
* The tiny island of Hashima ([[FanNickname nicknamed Gunkanjima]] or "Battleship Island" due to its resemblance of the Japanese battleship ''Tosa'' from the distance) is basically a minehead of the enormous undersea coal works that belonged to [[MegaCorp Mitsubishi]]. While the CompanyTown that occupies the whole top of the island is a very popular attraction among the urban explorers, the mine itself probably hasn't been visited since it closed in the 1974 due to falling coal prices.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has quite a few examples:
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': There are a number of them throughout Vvardenfell. Many kwama egg mines had to be abandoned when the resident kwama colony became blighted and turned hostile. There are also some ebony and glass mines that had to be abandoned for various reasons. One in particular, the Vassir-Didanat ebony mine, was not only abandoned but it's location was lost. You can find it and report its location to one of three Hlaalu councilors, each of whom will give you a different reward. Unlike ''Oblivion'', and like ''Skyrim'', Vvardenfell also features ''un''abandoned mines still being operated.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'': for the civilized heart of TheEmpire, Cyrodil sure has a lot of abandoned mines lying around for no good reason and, for the most part, they're infested with bandits or creatures. They sometimes show no evidence, beyond wooden supports or the odd pickaxe, of actually being a mine. Bonus points for one literally called the Abandoned Mine.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' does have a few, but it makes it more reasonable by also having working and populated mines.
