Does anyone have any tips about how to contact a company to obtain access to a restricted site?

What I'm particulary interested in is the Burke/Gem abandoned mining towns, owned by the Hecla mining company. You can drive up and around the site, but the vast majority is fenced off, and there is no access into the interior of the buildings.

Here are a few links to get an idea of what the site looks like:

I've been there on two occasions, and there is a LOT of architecture potential.

I've never had to formally ask permission to access property like this before....any thoughts or pointers?
