A Gold Mine

Here's a version of the Monty Hall dilemma. I'm standing by three mine shafts in Death Valley. All three are boarded up. Two of the mines have a dead burro only; the other has a pot gold. I know which mine has the pot of gold. You choose one of the thee mines hoping to find gold. But before uncovering your choice, I reveal to you one of the other mines that has a dead burro. Then I ask you whether you want to switch your choice to the remaining mine (the one I didn't reveal). Should you switch your choice or stay with your original selection?
