This is the mine. It's right below the aqueduct, and as you can see, it's surrounded by open caves. Left is a huge ravine, ahead and right are caves, including a massive set of tunnels that I've walled off with cobble on the upper right. It's a pretty good example of why I got frustrated. Sometimes the Minecraft tunnel generator seems a bit nuts.
Next up is the aqueduct, as seen from the middle level. Ahead are the doors leading toward the source of the water near the wheat greenhouse on the surface. The whole right wall? That's rebuilt to hide the same ravine you see in the mine picture above. If you go up the stairs, there's a ramp above the water flow that leads to the upper level, eventually leading to the workshop tower in the basement of my original structure.

I definitely plan on doing another build here, so never fear, Minecraft will be back. Next time I'll try to have a plan before I start any major building...
