About the Sound Effects Library

The Zinc Mines coverart_web“The Zinc Mines” is a collection of high quality ambient and close up recordings from within the various levels, drifts, shafts and caverns of the underground Zinc Mines located in Grue, Norway.

Specifically these recordings were done in the mines called “Nysetergruvene”. The atmosphere inside the mountain mine is cold and wet, with water dripping between levels, trickling down shafts and dripping in large pools.

The recordings vary from extremely quiet and sparse dripping to gushing intense waterfalls with varying distance to source.
