In the area I map the mineshafts are currently not mapped at all. Also 
looking at mineshafts in other parts of the world they are very often not 
mapped. Sometimes they are tagged with tourism=attraction (especially when 
they can be visited), sometimes with historic=mine (if they are disused), 
sometimes there is only a note, that there is a mineshaft. But it seems 
mostly they are not mapped because people do not know how to tag them.
