Finding Something Unexpected in an Abandoned Copper Mine
 
14:48
What an unexpected discovery! Paul and I never imagined finding what we found deep in this abandoned copper mine in Arizona. The Warren-Bisbee Mine's obscure entrance was basically a rabbit hole and didn't look too promising. However, once we gained entry by sliding in on our backs, the tunnels opened up and were surprisingly extensive. One tunnel led us deep into the mine to an inner area where we found -- something. Something impressive. Something rare that I've only seen a few times in abandoned mines over the last seven years or so. And it's all here in this video. Enjoy! Don't forget: New videos are released at midnight (Pacific Time) on the 1st, 10th, and 20th of each month. View and use the information in my videos at your own risk. All abandoned mines (especially the ones in my videos) are very dangerous and should not be entered under any circumstances. No potentially life-threatening, dangerous, or legal decisions and assumptions should be made based on information in my videos.
An Abandoned Mine Search for an Underground Swimming Hole (Plus a Study in False Floors!)
 
09:06
Talk about an unusual place! I went into an abandoned tungsten mine to search for an elusive swimming hole 500 feet underground that I've heard residents from the area talk about for the last five years or so. I had been in this particular abandoned mine before but never located the flooded lowest levels where the locals swim. Paul and I set descended the mine's inclined shaft to the 300-Level so that we could search for the swimming hole. After endless tunnels and artifacts, we found it! Or at least the very, very dangerous way to access it. The old "rock test" confirmed that the swimming hole's icy water is, indeed, very deep in the bottom-most levels of this abandoned mine.

I did this one for Stansberry Investment Research, one of the biggest Research and Economics Multimedia platforms worldwide. i had cover several Environmental and Ecology Conservation Assignments, this was very challenging due the reputation that unsustainable mining have, however a person must understand the way that we as humans live in order to overcome unsustainable and unfair industries and natural resources exploitation. Also shooting from the helicopter without a gyro/stabilizer was very difficult. A great assignment.

Your future tech may rely on deep-sea mining
 
08:08
As the demand grows for the metals that power electronics, we may have to look farther and farther for mining opportunities. The next big mining frontier is the deep sea: along the seafloor, mysterious vents shoot scalding hot fluid into the ocean. These vents are a haven for miraculous and unique sea life, but they’re also home to highly concentrated (and very valuable) metals. What happens if we decide that the metals are worth more than the life? Thank you to Ocean Exploration Trust for allowing us to use clips from their deep sea footage.

Interesting Underground Gold Mine Stuffed With Quartz
 
27:30
This gold mine is one of those abandoned mines that didn’t look like much at first, but ended up being really interesting… Aside from the complexity of the underground workings we explored, we just kept finding stuff. Well, more accurately, I should say that my exploring buddy kept finding stuff. While I was inside the first adit looking around, Mr. McBride, discovered the lower adit and the buildings above the mine workings. Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about the history of this mine. As with many things, California is behind other states in digitizing the records in their archives. By contrast, Nevada is fantastic in this respect. The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology and the University of Nevada in Reno have done a really impressive job of digitizing and organizing their records online. So, for example, if you have the name of a mine, you can look through their database and find extensive records and maps for the mine you’re curious about. Obviously, not every historic mine is included in their database, but most are. Even without knowing the history though, it is apparent that this mine is an older mine that was worked off and on for quite a while. It also doesn’t seem to be a big stretch to assume that a respectable amount of gold was extracted. I’m basing that on the size of the workings and how the miners burrowed off in all directions from that quartz core where the pit was. They even went down and ran another adit in... Actually, as I was typing that, I realized that it may have been the other way around. If you’ll recall, the track in the lower adit was the “budget rail” where the miners nailed the metal strips onto boards to run the ore carts over. Since the track in the first adit I entered was solid metal rail, it would suggest the possibility that the miners may have done well enough in the lower adit to afford to splash out on expensive rail when driving a second adit above. In other words, the lower adit may have been the first adit. The mine buildings just above the underground workings were interesting to us given their age. The main building looked just large enough to accommodate a crew of approximately the size of the number of names on the board where the miners would badge in and badge out. It’s possible a mining crew could have worked this operation in the winter, but given its remote location, fairly poor dirt roads and heavy snowfall in the winter, it seems more likely this was a summer mining operation.

Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 3
 
16:45
After following the drift we ended the last video with to its surprising conclusion, we started moving back toward the main hub of this enormous abandoned mine. Along the way, we explored many of the side passages and raises that were bypassed on the route in through the main haulage adit located in this part of the mine. Following the very long hike up and out of the mine, we set up our camp for the night (we spent all day underground in this mine) and then headed above the mine to see some of its more interesting features above ground. You’ll see that we explore some of the mine buildings, including one that has an amazing collection inside of it. Although I was curious about what was inside of the modern mine buildings we discovered, I also had a specific destination in mind. One of my exploring buddies – Adit Addicts – had spotted what appeared to be a steam shovel abandoned above the modern mine we explored in this video. I wanted to see this machine to confirm what it was and also to film it if it really did turn out to be a steam shovel. As with the mine itself, it was quite a hike up into the hills above it. Fortunately, I was able to find the machine (although the GPS took me on a terrible route to do so) and it was indeed a steam shovel. Sort of... It was a steam shovel at one time, but had actually been converted over to run on an internal combustion motor. I had never seen anything like that before and it was pretty amazing to see one out in the desert mountains still next to the pile of dirt it had been excavating decades ago. The modern abandoned mine featured in this video is definitely not the first mine in this area and when looking around above the mine, it was fairly common to see old collapsed adits and old surface mining work. Many of these seemed to be more exploratory in nature though. This area has historically been a large producer of ores containing lead, copper and silver and a thriving town was once supported by the mines. However, today, there is almost no trace left of the ghost town or an aerial tramway that also used to be here. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Deep Blue Mystery Mineral Inside An Abandoned Mine In Nevada
 
18:54
Well, getting to this abandoned mine proved the old adage about how you’ve got to want it… We drove as far as we could down rough dirt roads in a remote part of Nevada until even the 4WD with high clearance couldn’t go any farther. Then, we switched over to dirt bikes and rode those for many miles through the mountains until it was impossible to proceed even on the bikes. At that point, I descended the steep canyon on foot to finally reach this mine. There was certainly no road leading all of the way to the mine and there wasn’t even a trail that I saw after the road stopped. It was pure bushwhacking getting down to explore this one. Given how hard it was to get to this mine and given the fact that I lugged the drone all of the way down to the bottom of the canyon meant that you were getting drone footage in this video even if the drone had never left the ground! I didn’t see any signs of heavy equipment having been at this site (which is not surprising considering the location), but it still would have been quite a feat just bringing in the rail for the ore carts as well as the tools the miners would have needed. And if they used metal ore carts, these would HAVE to have been brought to the mine in pieces and reassembled on site. The cabin/workshop was somewhat interesting to me. I didn’t see any signs of a bed or really any signs that the miners had lived there aside from those couple of rusty cans that we saw inside. Also, that structure would not have been a pleasant place to stay in the winter! However, it would have been impossible for someone to commute in to this mine given the distances involved. So, someone must have stayed here. Given how this seemed like something of a shoestring mining operation, it makes me wonder if a couple of miners didn’t just sleep rough inside of that structure of corrugated metal during the warmer months along with their tools and that primitive fireplace to keep away the cold at night. The miners might have just worked here for a couple of seasons. While exploring this abandoned mine and its surroundings, I saw no evidence at all that anyone has visited this site in decades. The “road” – if you can even call it that – which runs closest to the site was completely overgrown and sections of it were blocked by small rockslides. All traces of whatever trail that might have once existed and descended to the mine have vanished. And, of course, there were no footprints or signs of modern human activity such as trash or tire marks within many miles of this abandoned mine. It isn’t often that one is able to visit a historical site like that in our modern era. I was quite taken with that brilliant, deep blue mystery mineral inside of the mine... I have never seen anything like it outside of the fine lapis lazuli that is mined in Afghanistan. However, I don’t believe that what we saw inside of the mine was lapis lazuli… Was it? I sincerely hope that someone in the audience can definitively identify it. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Mining -- Gold Exploration & Mining (4/6)
 
05:17
A company whose principal activities consist of exploration for mineral, oil or gas may not progress to the next stage of development or to a stage where it is able to generate revenue. Minerals companies are amongst the top stocks on SGX, with an annual turnover velocity of more than 280%, a rate which is many more than times that of the typical stock. Gold holds a special allure for investors as it is a precious metal and a store of value. This seminar will touch of the risks of exploration & development of gold mineral deposits, including the various broad categories of goal mineral deposits and methods for development and extraction. Join our speaker Mark Berry (geologist), as he covers an overview of geology, exploration, development and extraction of iron ore and nickel, with emphasis on the risks that investors need to know about.

Exploring a Creepy, Abandoned Mine Full of Death
 
05:11
The abandoned Tungsten Peak Mine was where Ridgecrest resident Linda Lou Rose died when she accidentally fell down a 100-foot vertical shaft inside the mine back in November of 2009. There is some confusion regarding her name -- the memorial placed at the mine site says her name was Linda Lou Rose. News stories reporting the accident say her name was Linda Marie Rose. I initially explore this mine site in July of 2013 but did not enter the mine. Instead, I promised to return to the mine with other explorers so that we could safely explore the mine's three levels and find the vertical shaft where Ms. Rose died almost five years ago. This video documents our most recent exploration of the Tungsten Peak Mine's 3500 feet of workings. It was an eerie mine, and we found many disturbing things such as animal skins nailed to the timbers, collapses, flooded sections, and dead birds. And the gaping shaft that swallowed Ms. Rose.

Disturbing, strange sounds. That's exactly what I caught on video while filming and documenting the abandoned Waldeck Mine using the ThruNite TN12 flashlight. The Waldeck Mine is an abandoned gold mine located deep in a forested canyon in the high country. I went there on a stormy night in order to document the mine while reviewing and demonstrating ThruNite's excellent TN12 handheld flashlight. The abandoned mine itself is over 150 years old and still has a lot of awesome yet dangerous timbering in its furthest reaches. There are upper levels in the Waldeck Mine, but I only explored and documented the main haulage tunnel. As mentioned in the video, the ThruNite TN12 flashlight I used exclusively for this demo and review has five light levels. Here are the lumens each light level puts out: FIREFLY MODE: 0.4 lumens LOW MODE: 18 lumens MEDIUM MODE: 175 lumens HIGH MODE: 435 lumens TURBO MODE: 1100 lumens The flashlight runs off of a 3400 mAh 18650 battery. ****SPECIAL COUPON CODE**** If you place an order on ThruNite's direct website only (http://www.thrunite.com/thrunite-tn12-2016-xp-l-v6-max-1100-lumen-flashlight/) between now and December 23rd, 2016, use this coupon code at checkout to receive 20% off your order.

Exploring the Silver Corner Mine: "BAD AIR. KEEP OUT!"
 
09:53
I accidentally stumbled upon the Silver Corner Mine after taking a wrong turn onto an overgrown dirt road while looking for another abandoned mine. I wasn't sure of where the road would take me, so I followed it up the mountain a short way and found myself at an abandoned mine site! Later I found out that I had discovered the Silver Corner Mine. The mine was fairly extensive with 3000 feet or so of workings as well as access points to lower levels. It was surprising to find electrical cable and light bulbs still hanging in the main tunnel -- it seemed as if the mine hadn't been worked decades. This video will also show some of the miners' humorous graffiti and artwork I found on the tunnel walls deep in the mine. I explored the entire main tunnel as well as a lengthy branching tunnel. At the end of the main tunnel I was surprised to find the skeletal remains of a somewhat large animal. Mountain lion? A burro? The teeth in the skull look flat like a burro's teeth would be. Not sure why any animal of that size would be 3000 feet inside an abandoned mine unless it had gotten totally lost and had given up on trying to find the exit.
The Horton Mine: Follow-up Exploration of a Creepy, Ghost-Filled Mine (Summer 2014)

As promised, I recently returned to the haunted Horton Mine to fully explore it no matter what happened. I first explored the mine almost a year ago but turned around after only going into it a hundred feet or so and encountering a supernatural presence that I caught on film. That video is here if you haven't seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReYbrlG4BAU This most recent follow-up exploration led me deep into the mine all the way to its flooded end where I was standing at the bottom of a 900-foot tall ore pass that had water cascading down it. As I was filming this dank area, I once again had a frightening encounter with an unknown presence. After this recent experience, I will never set foot inside the Horton Mine again. Never.

Dangerous Exploration: Finding an Old Gun in the Wicked Wash Mine (Part 3)
 
08:04
As promised, Paul and I returned recently to the Wicked Wash Mine and descended to the 300-Level after having already explored the 100- and 200-Levels on previous visits. The 300-Level was not nearly as extensive as the 200-Level was, but we did find a large stope and a lot of bats. Dampness was also present on the 300-Level which was something we did not encounter on the upper two levels. According to my firearms expert buddy Tony, the gun that we found stashed in an old box on the 300-Level is an H&R Young America .32 five-shot revolver that dates back to sometime between 1900 and 1930. What an amazing find! Due to a lot of collapse and debris partially plugging the main inclined shaft just below the 300-Level station, we decided to postpone any further descent to the 400-Level and lower until a future expedition. On the way back up the inclined shaft to the surface, we once again stopped at the 200-Level station for a closer look at the two ore chutes and their gears that extend into the shaft. While examining them, we noticed that the side of a wooden Tropical Preserving Company box had been nailed to the ore chute. That company dates back to the 1920s and is still in business today making jams, jellies, and fruit butter. Wedged in next to the chute was an old Folger's coffee can, too.

Exploring the Abandoned Whorehouse and Tunnels at the Wayward Wench Mine
 
08:59
Paul, Chuck, the new guy Brent, and I teamed-up to explore some abandoned mines and an abandoned whorehouse in Nevada. The Wayward Wench Mine had many tunnels of varying depths. We documented as many as we could. Afterward, we stopped off at an abandoned brothel that saw its last paying customer sometime in the early 1990s. Some of the beds and tacky decor were still in place such as velvet headboards and sparkling stucco. Real classy! Enjoy!
Incredibly Rare Wooden Ore Cart Found Inside A Mine!
 
22:15
Well, we certainly don’t come across something like this every day when we’re out exploring… Just like the abandoned steam engine we featured in another video, this is one of those incredible once in a lifetime finds. There are precious few of these wooden ore carts left in existence and even fewer that can still be found at an abandoned mine rather than rotting away in someone’s backyard. Fortunately, this mine is not marked on any topographic maps and it is in a very remote area of the desert. I believe this is what has protected it from the vermin that ransack these sites to sell the historical artifacts on eBay. Were it not for these circumstances, the wooden ore cart would have undoubtedly disappeared a long time ago. We have found bits and pieces of the metal frames of wooden ore carts in and around some of the old (1800s) mines in California’s “Mother Lode” region. So, obviously, they were used there. However, the wood has long since rotted away and whatever was left of the abandoned carts has disintegrated with time and exposure to the elements. If you consider it, wooden ore carts actually made a lot of sense for the miners in the past that were venturing out over steep mountains and down deep canyons, often over little more than primitive trails. Rather than needing to use a team of mules to haul a backbreakingly heavy metal ore cart up a sheer cliff to a mine, the miners could have hauled out the relatively lightweight (except for the wheels) components and then assembled the carts from the plentiful trees growing around the mine. And, as was mentioned in the video, if something breaks, the miners could just cut another tree down and repair the cart. From the look of it, the wooden ore cart at this mine in the video may have likewise been constructed from the trees found around the mine. As for the mine itself, which was almost an afterthought for me after finding the wooden ore cart, it wasn’t a huge mine, but I thought it was an interesting little mine all the same, no? The flickering effect created by the LEDs on the video drove me nuts when I was editing it, but focusing on the features of the mine, I liked the way the mine twisted around until it reached that small raise and the winze. Given how clean this first section of the mine was, I can only conclude that that section is the one that was worked most recently and the area behind the skip car (where the rails for the ore carts disappeared) was driven during the early days of the mine and then abandoned. I don’t blame the miners for abandoning that section of the mine given how soft the material there was. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

But it's definitely a very creepy mine tunnel to explore. We are not ghost adventures, and we are no paranormal investigators. We are just explorers who enjoy exploring abandoned places. We also enjoy exploring possible haunted abandoned places. Often called one of the most haunted places in the US, the Horton Mine is definitely a creepy place to explore. The entire mine looks like it could have been straight out of a horror movie. Exploring Abandoned Mines has explored this mine twice, and both times he claims to have experienced and filmed possible paranormal encounters with ghosts. Again, we are not ghost hunters or looking for paranormal activity, but we did think what we heard later was very interesting.

Gold Demand, Supply and Cost -- Gold Exploration & Mining (6/6)
 
04:57
A company whose principal activities consist of exploration for mineral, oil or gas may not progress to the next stage of development or to a stage where it is able to generate revenue. Minerals companies are amongst the top stocks on SGX, with an annual turnover velocity of more than 280%, a rate which is many more than times that of the typical stock. Gold holds a special allure for investors as it is a precious metal and a store of value. This seminar will touch of the risks of exploration & development of gold mineral deposits, including the various broad categories of goal mineral deposits and methods for development and extraction. Join our speaker Mark Berry (geologist), as he covers an overview of geology, exploration, development and extraction of iron ore and nickel, with emphasis on the risks that investors need to know about.

Dangerous Exploration: The Wicked Wash Mine (Part 1)
 
07:46
The Wicked Wash Mine is a remote, pristine, undisturbed abandoned gold mine I found out in the desert about which there is little information. It has a dangerous, rubble-filled 700-foot inclined shaft that leads to 3500 feet of workings. Paul and I spent an afternoon descending the treacherous inclined shaft to the 100-Level where we found some artifacts. Due to the artifacts we found, the lack of graffiti, and not finding any modern trash from previous explorers, it is apparent that nobody has been in the Wicked Wash Mine in decades -- until now. Enjoy the video! And stay tuned for a follow-up video -- we will return to the Wicked Wash Mine with better safety gear so that we can continue exploring the rest of its inclined shaft.

The deep ocean is the final frontier on planet Earth
 
14:49
Watch the latest in the Ocean series - What sharks reveal about the state of the Ocean: https://youtu.be/6xz1mxppMhY The ocean covers 70% of our planet. The deep-sea floor is a realm that is largely unexplored, but cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to go deeper than ever before. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

Abandoned Gold mines in the Sheep Creek valley.

We visit more mines in the Sheep Creek Valley once a hub of mining activity with 3,000 residents now the mines have all closed and only 3 people remain!
Impressive Woodwork In The Abandoned Upper Butte Mine
 
17:54
As can be plainly seen by the diminished status of the portal, it won’t be long before this mine is no longer accessible. Given the activity of the seasonal creek and the significant amounts of water that pour into this mine every year, I’d guess no more than a season or two... As such, I’m very glad we got the chance to visit as we may well be the last visitors to this mine. Ever. And this is very likely the only video footage that exists of this mine. I find that to be somewhat sad, but the mountains and deserts are absolutely filled with historic mines like this that have been lost forever. I’ve seen mind-blowing old photographs from the inside of mines not far from the one seen in this video. Perhaps they are still impressive underground, but they are no longer accessible and, on the surface, there is little trace of them and the men that struggled, sweated and bled there. At least we were able to get into this mine in its final days to capture what will soon be gone. So, what was the deal with the ore chute? Ore chutes are supposed to be free of obstructions with sides as smooth as possible to facilitate the ore easily sliding down them to the waiting ore carts below. The large ore chute in this mine seemed to break those rules. The sides were not smooth and those boards laid across the supports would get in the way of ore or waste rock being dropped down (if the impact didn’t break the boards). Given the quality of the woodwork, I do not have the impression that the miners didn’t know what they were doing. So, I really don’t know what was going on there. Any ideas? I’m also a bit puzzled by the function of that fantastic wood-lined raise. I understand the purpose of the wood in preventing rock from sloughing off the sides and it looked really cool to have all sides of the square covered. However, what was the real purpose of that structure in the first place? So, the miners could access an upper level? Well, obviously, but what did they do when they got up there? There was no ore chute to drop ore down. So, what were they doing up there and why was such a large opening necessary if it was just providing access to the miners? If it connects to the workings accessed by the ore chute, what is the need for the raise since the miners could have just climbed up the manway next to the ore chute to access those workings? I hate unanswered questions like these as we will likely never know the answer. This is the first time that I have explored an abandoned mine in this part of the Sierra Nevada. The region was off of my radar, but after a very precise tip from a viewer, I saw quite quickly that overlooking this area had been a mistake. Having already picked a lot of the low-hanging fruit around us, tips from viewers are becoming increasingly important (hint hint). We don’t have the money or time to run off to Nevada, Alaska, Italy, Germany, Indonesia, Slovenia, etc. every week for a new video. So, we need that local knowledge to help steer us toward some good mines to explore! ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Found!  Secret Gold Mine and Mining Camp Hidden in the Mountains
 
05:26
We recently stumbled upon this secret, hidden, abandoned mine and mining camp high up in the mountains. We explored one mine tunnel as well as the surface structures. A shed onsite contained an old vintage Silvertone radio/record player from 1940, a winch, a newspaper from 1957, and other artifacts. Inside the mine, we found more artifacts used by the miners, and we demonstrate in the video how those artifacts were used by the miners long ago.
Trespass in to the Nugget Mine, what happened in court?
 
23:24
Margaux Resources charged me with trespass for going into this mine. I beat the charge they couldn't prove I was in the mine. This is the third trespass charge I beat. It would have been nice if CEO Tyler Rice would do what he said in court and work with us. We wanted to take a tour of his operation and see what they are up to but no luck so far. It would be great to tour one of the largest historic mines in the area the Jersey Emerald. Oh well I am sure we can get some video of the Jersey Emerald one way or another!
Remarkable Discovery Underground At Abandoned Hydraulic Mine
 
27:26
We don’t often do videos on hydraulic mines and that is simply because there aren’t many of them... This is mostly due to hydraulic mines being enormous operations with few places where the conditions are right for them to have existed. They don’t end up on the environmentally friendly list of mining techniques either, but the process is interesting (at least to me) nevertheless. My exploring buddy, Mr. McBride, (his YouTube channel is Adit Addicts) located this sluice tunnel on our first visit to this site a couple of years ago. At that time, we met the owner of the mine and accompanying ghost town (well, almost a ghost town) who invited us to look around. We weren’t properly equipped to explore the tunnel at that time and also had Mr. McBride’s daughters with us. So, we saved this one for another trip. While I was editing the video, I realized that many are probably not very familiar with the history I’m discussing and the terms I’m throwing around. So, I’ll take a crack at explaining hydraulic mining as seen in this video: Many millions of years ago, large rivers ran through this area. These rivers ran through areas that contained rich gold deposits. As today, when erosion released the gold in the rocks, the gold would tumble down into the rivers or be washed into them. Gold – being heavy - would slowly sink down through the sand, gravel and mud in the river channel, accumulating on the bedrock beneath the river. Eventually, volcanic eruptions killed these ancient rivers, burying them deep under ash and lava flows. Millions of years later, after the early “Gold Rush” miners had picked the easy gold from California’s modern rivers and streams, they started trying to locate the source of the gold they had been finding. It wasn’t long before they started heading beneath the earth, soon encountering river gravel hundreds of feet underground. This fabulously rich gravel set off a stampede to locate all of the ancient river channels playing host to placer gold. Countless underground placer mines sprang into existence to bore their way into mountains, desperately seeking ancient river channels. For those with the means, hydraulic mining offered access to the underground placers on a massive scale… Water was diverted from a source above the hydraulic mine into a series of pipes leading to the site that the miners wished to work. The water (flowing downhill) was run through an increasingly small series of pipes (building up pressure in the increasingly confined space) until it exited from a small nozzle known as a “monitor.” By this point, the water was practically exploding out of the nozzle as it was under tremendous pressure. This roaring jet of water smashed into the sides of hills and mountains like a giant hammer and swiftly washed away anything it hit. The process soon removed the overburden, exposing the ancient river channels the miners were after. With the volume of water flowing from the monitor, everything being knocked loose was washed down into ditches that then dropped into drain tunnels (as seen in this video). The sand, mud and gravel the gold is mixed in with came cascading into the series of large sluice boxes lining the tunnels. The riffles embedded in the sluice boxes would snag the heavy gold, which naturally sinks to the bottom, while the lighter mud, gravel and sand would simply flow over the riffles and out of the tunnel into the creeks and rivers below (there’s another story there). Periodically, the roaring water monitors would be switched off and the miners would then walk along the sluice boxes, scooping up the gold trapped behind the riffles (often with the assistance of mercury). The hydraulic mines took a lot of work to set up and took a lot of capital to do so, but they took out a LOT of gold. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Exploring the Abandoned Stilton Mine and Its Smelly Tunnels
 
12:05
Finally made it out to this somewhat remote mine in the California desert not too long ago. Like most mines, the Stilton Mine has been abandoned for a long time. Unlike most mines, though, the Stilton Mine has become a home for lots of pack rats and mice. In fact, this was one of the smelliest mines I have been in due to the sheer number of rodents living in it. It was pretty bad! Galena, lead, silver, and gold were all mined here at one time or another. The mine had an interesting layout with Y-intersections and other branching tunnels. In fact, you'll see in the video where I momentarily got dis-oriented and wasn't sure where the exit was!

4100 Feet Underground in the Massive, Abandoned Admiral Aaron Ward Mine
 
16:50
While coming back down from some mines way up north, Paul and I stopped at the abandoned Admiral Aaron Ward Mine and walked down its 4100-foot inclined entry tunnel into the subterranean workings. Once we reached the bottom, we found wide tunnels branching off in all directions in this former silver, copper, and zinc mine. During our five-hour exploration, we found one stope that was unbelievably huge and utterly mind-blowing! We also found deep, flooded areas and bottomless shafts. Various colorful mineral growths and crystal growths appear throughout the mine's tunnels, too. The miners' workshop was still full of spare parts, tools, and other artifacts. Another interesting find was the miners' refuge chamber. A freshwater spring deep in the mine provided us with some of the cleanest and best-tasting water I've ever drank! After five hours of exploring, we decided to call it quits and began the long, arduous hike back up the 4100-foot, inclined entry tunnel to the surface.
