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.

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!

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. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

The Mine Where Everyone Missed
 
27:08
While accurate, the title demands an explanation… Yes, everyone missed here. As you’ll see in this, and subsequent videos, this is a failed placer mine. The many gold miners that worked here were desperately searching for the ancient river channels that so many other mines in the mining district had tapped into with immense success. In their search for those gold-filled channels, the miners at this mine explored underground to the right, left, up and down within the claim boundaries. However, quite simply, they missed… Fortunately, their efforts make for a quite unique and interesting abandoned mine. Then, Adit Addicts and I arrived at this mine site. We had a verbal description of where the adit was and even a fairly precise location from a topographic map. After looking all over the place for this adit on multiple visits, but failing to locate it, we eventually concluded that it had eroded shut and been lost forever. However, quite simply, we missed… Following the visits from Adit Addicts and me, our pals in the U.S. Forest arrived on the scene and, to their eternal disgrace, they have succeeded in mostly destroying this historic mine. They THINK they have completely destroyed it. However, quite simply, they missed… Well, they missed this adit - which is the main adit at the mine. Finally, Adit Addicts, on a return trip over the winter, did NOT miss. It was through a stroke of luck that he was able to locate this adit, but locate it he did. To be fair to the miners, to us and, yes, even to the Forest Service, this is not an easy mine to locate or one that presents easy working conditions… To say that we were surprised by how extensive this mine turned out to be would be a huge understatement. I have to be careful in sharing much information on this one as I do not want the Forest Service to return and finish their destruction. However, it is very interesting to look at the ownership records of this mine as it changed hands over and over again as one disillusioned miner after another apparently dumped it on the next sucker. Also, as was alluded to in our conversation inside of the mine about the Chinese miners, quite a diverse array of ethnic groups mined here. I’d love to give more details. Perhaps one day we will have more enlightened governance and I can share so much more about the abandoned mines we visit… So, I promised to talk about the “strips” I am constantly referencing on what look like rails… Traditional rails, whether they are for trains or ore carts, are heavy and expensive. Thus, for miners operating on a budget in locations that are difficult to reach, a lighter and cheaper alternative ranks high on their wish list. From this, were born wooden “rails.” The miners would take sturdy boards (lighter and cheaper) and lay these down in the same configuration as rails. They would then take thin strips of metal (some people call them straps) and would nail these down on top of the boards. The boards are not as sturdy or as smooth as rail, but they get the job done. The metal strips on top of the boards are to protect the wood from being immediately destroyed by the metal ore cart wheels. One will often see those metal strips scattered around old mines as the boards and strips had to be replaced often. I’ll talk more about what exactly the miners missed in the next video as well as how painfully close they were… The link to the next video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keSl6y2b6nI The YouTube channel for Adit Addicts can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIXOU8aR7o50X6q2wQ0wbCQ ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

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. Was that a grave at the end? What do you guys think that was? ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Gold Overview -- Gold Exploration & Mining (1/6)
 
10:49
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.

So C'mon....Let's Go !!!!! Here is an excerpt from Joannes article in Desert Magazine . My feet were dangling through a two foot square opening in the wooden floor. A hundred feet below me Bill shouts up that it looks interesting and that we should join him. I double check the rope to make sure I threaded it properly though my rappelling rack, doing it wrong can have fatal consequences. I try to find a foothold so I can ease down through the opening. The shaft below me is pitch black and my headlamp only lights up a small area around me. My mouth is dry and I can feel my heart pounding in my chest. Tony’s quite voice and British accent are calming. He assures me that the rigging looks good and that I am doing fine. Did I mention that I’m afraid of heights? No really, I’m afraid of heights. Easing down farther into the blackness the rope tightens up and starts to take my weight. I really need three hands right now, two to lower me down through the opening and one to hold onto the rope and control my descent, but unfortunately I am a hand short. Finally my foot settles on a small rock outcropping allowing me to ease down into the blackness of the shaft. Once again I check my rigging, this time to ensure that my hair or clothing are not getting tangled in the rappelling rack. Above me I can see Tony’s light shining down as he monitors my progress. Glancing down I can see Bill’s light illuminating my landing point. Minutes later my feet touched down on a wooden platform. I remove myself from the rope and yell up to Tony that he can start his descent. Most people I talk with about mine exploring think I’m absolutely crazy. So what leads people to venture into dark, dangerous places like old mines? For me the answers are adventure, exploration, and an interest in history. Adventure was probably the primary attraction when I rst started exploring old mines. I was going places where few people would dare to go. It was exciting and a bit scary at the same time. Although the sense of adventure still exists, it has been surpassed by the desire to explore the unknown and the feeling of being tied to history. As I make my way through a mine I think about the miners who dug the tunnels, blasted with dynamite, laid down track, and built ore chutes. Why did they labor in such dangerous conditions where the loss of life was a common occurrence? What would draw them to this life? As we explore in and around the mines we often nd reminders of their lives. For more here is the info for the Magazine. Spring 2012 Desert Magazine Vol 2 Issue 2

The Horton Mine: Encountering a Ghost in a Haunted, Abandoned Mine (Summer 2013)
 
03:49
I had a startling encounter with the supernatural while exploring the abandoned Horton Mine located near the massive Victorine Mine in Nevada. The Horton Mine dates back to the mid-1800s. I have been inside over a hundred abandoned mines, but this one was definitely the creepiest. As I ventured hesitantly down the tunnel, it felt more and more wrong. You'll see in the video the supernatural occurrence that caused me to ultimately turn around and head back out of the tunnel. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration #HortonMine #Ghosts #ParanormalActivity

Death Valley Curly & The 1885 Mine
 
14:53
The mining district where this mine is located was famed for its rich silver production... I would love to tell you more about the history of this mine than that. However, with these early mines (subsequent research leads me to believe that the 1885 carved into the wooden door may well be accurate), there were often few – if any - written records. That is particularly the case with a smaller mine such as this one where I was unable to even determine a name, let alone production records or the identities of the original miners that worked there. I don’t know if “Death Valley Curly” ever mined here or not, but I’d love to know more of his story as well. I am curious to know how the miners decided on the location of this mine. The surface of this site was made up of broken rocks from an ancient lava flow and there didn’t appear to be any minerals that would have caught the eyes of the miners. I suppose they might have had a hunch that the lava flow had covered up a good deposit of silver ore, but why here? Perhaps one of the geologists in the audience will correct me, but a lava flow of this type seems like really unpromising ground to run a mine into. The smaller size of the mine might be confirmation of that speculation on my part. Despite starting out with relatively drab colors, the adit really exploded with color around the end of the haulage adit where that significant winze was. I’m partially colorblind, but that really popped even for me. So, I can only imagine how it looks for those of you enjoying the ability to fully see color. I believe that that would have been an interesting place to try out a blacklight. I am not sure what inspired the miners to run that ridiculously deep winze straight down toward the end of the haulage adit. Perhaps they were giving up on continuing to drive ahead horizontally as they had been? Or perhaps they found some promising indicators as they were working down? The other work branching off from the haulage adit seemed exploratory in nature or perhaps the miners had come across a small pocket or two along the way, but nothing significant. Regardless of the reason for its creation, I remain very curious about how deep that winze runs and if there are any additional levels down there. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

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! #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration #Brothel #Whorehouse
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. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundExploration #TungstenPeakMine
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. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

Nice Little, Out-Of-The-Way Gold Mine...
 
13:13
I figured that after almost a month of a massive, foreign abandoned mine that pursued industrial metals that I’d give you a break with a small, historical abandoned mine that pursued precious metals in California. That’s about as opposite as one can get… I try to mix things up to keep it interesting from the perspective of a viewer though. After an international mine, I try to do a domestic mine. After a large mine, I try to do a small mine. The primary reason that I publish these videos is to document a part of our history that is rapidly being erased. It is my hope that these can serve as a record in the future for historians or simply those that might be curious. Once I have confirmed that a mine has been destroyed by the Forest Service/BLM or it has simply eroded shut, I go back and change the titles to reflect the name. This way, those looking for information about the mine in the future can locate my video documenting the site. As the title of this video states, this is a remote gold mine and it is located in a steep canyon... That being the case, I am amazed once again by the capability of the miner(s) in moving heavy mining equipment into a location that is extremely difficult to reach. In addition, the remote location makes it almost a certainty that the miner(s) lived on the site and did not commute in every day from a distant location. We looked around and saw no evidence of other buildings at this site. Granted, Mr. McBride was nursing a brutal hangover that day and was perhaps not up to his full potential in spotting clues and hidden treasures at this mine… However, the steep sides of the canyon did not provide a lot of options for the placement of a building. The foundation of that (only) building we saw was fairly small... I don’t know if the mining equipment we saw below was part of a compressor or if we were seeing milling equipment or what. So, I’m not sure if ore was taken to the building or if was somehow transported down to what was possibly a mill site? It seemed that the tracks for the ore carts possibly ran to the building. So, perhaps the ore was taken there, sorted and then brought down to the mill if considered worthy? Or perhaps there was another way to transport the ore down to the mill (assuming that is what that was) and part of the building was simply a workshop? With just a foundation left, we don’t have a lot to work with. Obviously, the waste rock was just tipped down the ravine… What I’m getting at is whether partially a workshop or not, that building did not cover a large space and if there was more than one miner working this site, they would have been awfully cozy inside of there. Even if they accepted extremely cozy (and smelly) conditions with bunk beds and other measures to save space, there simply would not have been enough room there for more than a handful of miners working there. They would have needed some sort of space for a workshop, space to prepare food, space to store equipment and food, space to stockpile ore, etc. That does not leave a lot of space left over for the miner(s) to live. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

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. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

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!

Incredible Nevada Silver Mine - Part 1
 
25:37
Buckle up for an extended series on one of my favorite abandoned mines… I’ve shown a number of smaller mines recently to set the stage for the explore of this huge abandoned mine – an abandoned mine that is filled with a number of incredible features that I have never seen anywhere else. I can sincerely say without hesitation that this is the most unique abandoned mine that I have ever explored. And having visited hundreds of mines by now, that is not a statement that I make lightly! Right at the start, the wind roaring out of the portal should give you a hint of the scale of this mine and what is ahead. At one point in the video, you’ll hear me ask how long we have been hiking in for and that reply from my exploring buddy on this trip is not a joke. Perhaps needless to say, we were pretty worn out after finishing this explore and went through a LOT of batteries! You might be curious about the history of this mine? As the title implies, the primary ore here was silver, but large pockets of gold and lead were discovered as well. The rich deposits at this site were first discovered in the 1870s and the adit we entered the mine through was driven in the 1880s to connect with earlier workings in this mining district. Peak production took place over the next couple of decades, but sporadic work continued through the 1960s. As the underground workings connect several different mines, it is impossible now to tell where one historic mine ended and another began. However, just be aware that you are seeing what were once several mines that have been consolidated into one. Obviously, I cut out almost all of the walk in because it was mostly featureless tunnel and I figured you didn’t want to see two full-length videos of us just walking. Although, I was tempted to have a video of that just so you could see how long the walk in is! However, the wind noise is annoying and so you are receiving the highlights version of the long walk we made to get to the heart of the mountain where the good stuff like that elevator and historic hoist were to be found. Don’t worry, the wind noise goes away once we really get inside. That inclined winze we follow up in the coming videos leads to some really amazing finds… If you’re a fan of any of the content that has been on this channel, stick with this series because this mine plays host to some of the best stuff we have ever found. The “we” on this explore was another YouTuber that goes by the handle of “Mines of the West” and has a focus on exploring abandoned mines in Oregon and Washington. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

The Horton Mine: Follow-up Exploration of a Creepy, Ghost-Filled Mine (Summer 2014)
 
08:36
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. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration #HortonMine #Ghosts #ParanormalActivity
Exploring Active Mines: Alleghany's Sixteen to One Mine
 
31:36
Located in the California mountain town of Alleghany, the Sixteen to One Mine is now the oldest gold mining corporation in the United States and with more than 26 miles of underground workings, it is a seriously impressive operation! This remarkably rich lode gold mine was located in 1896 by a man named Thomas Bradbury in his backyard (we should all be so lucky). More than a million ounces of gold have been extracted from the Sixteen to One Mine over the course of its existence (an amount worth well over a billion US dollars at current gold prices) and there is still much more gold inside of the mine waiting to be found... The gold inside of the Sixteen to One Mine does not follow a set pattern and is instead found in rich pockets randomly scattered across the quartz vein that the mine follows. Some of the pockets of gold are as small as an ounce or two and others contain tens of thousands of ounces of gold. The very existence of the Sixteen to One Mine revolves around locating these pockets of gold. The lower levels of the mine are presently flooded, but they are being dewatered at this time as the Sixteen to One Mine has two new gold detectors with proven successes in identifying gold in quartz previously undetected with older models. The potential of this new technology has inspired the company to pay the price of dewatering and rehabilitating the lower levels of the mine in order to pursue the gold they know is down there. No one has walked inside of the 3000 level since 1939 and so one can only imagine what might be found down there now. At present rates of pumping, the water in the lower levels of the mine is dropping at the rate of about 100 feet per month and access to the 3000 level may be restored by as soon as June of 2018. On this visit, we entered through the 800 Crosscut and first proceeded to the 49 Winze. Following this, we then headed deeper inside of the mine before dropping down through multiple levels to an incredible cavern that the miners carved out inside of the Sixteen to One Mine - the company calls this “The Ballroom” for its immense size and acoustics… For more information on the Sixteen to One Mine or even to buy physical gold or stock shares from the company, one can visit their website at: http://www.origsix.com/ ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Exploring A Remote Mine And Miner's Cabin In The Desert
 
21:26
Remote! This abandoned mine and miner’s cabin is WAY out in the Nevada desert. Come along with us on this adventure to see the treasures that can, fortunately, still be found hidden away in our world... Highway 50 running through Nevada is said to be “The Loneliest Road” in America. Well, to get to this abandoned mine, you have to turn off of the loneliest road and go down an even more lonely dirt road for many miles. Then, you have to turn off of that lonely dirt road onto another dirt road, that seems to be not much more than an animal trail, and go on that for several miles before finally arriving near enough to this mine to be able to walk up to it. Pretty lonely! We are frequently amazed by the ability of the old time prospectors to locate promising mineral deposits in the most remote and inhospitable places. This mine proved to be no exception. I simply cannot imagine how the miners in the past decided to start running an adit at this site. Interestingly, they punched straight back for several hundred feet before the adit abruptly stops at a “T” junction. There was a small drift and stope on the left, but on the right (taking off at a sharp angle of 90 degrees from the adit we came in on) was another drift heading off deeper into the mountain. This drift continues for several hundred feet more before coming to a chamber where the miners created a fairly large stope and also pursued the ore down through the floor of the adit. Perhaps the bits of wood down in the small pit they created are what is left of a trestle that used to run across this spot? After making our way across the small pit, the drift meandered around until we came to a large ore chute leading up into what must be upper workings of a respectable size. In the video, you can see why I believe these may connect to the outside world. After the ore chute, the historic mine bends around some more before finally simply stopping at a rock face. I don’t know what encouraged the miners to suddenly branch off from the initial adit at the sharp right angle, but this was apparently a good call given the stopes and ore chute that indicate they took some sort of valuable mineral out of there. The miner’s cabin did not have any type of road leading up to it. We continued hiking up the mountain above the mine in order to look for the presumed outside access to the upper workings that we saw extending up from the ore chute inside of the mine. We did not find the breach to the outside world (or the inside world depending on your perspective) that we were seeking, but the vegetation was fairly thick in the most likely areas. Forgive us, but we did not push too aggressively into some of these spots as we had no desire to be blindly thrashing our way through the thick brush only to take a tumble down a shaft or open stope. Instead, we kept exploring up the mountain because we were enjoying the views and were curious about what might be in such an area that sees so very few humans. After hiking for a while, I noticed the remains of a very faint trail leading down a little side canyon or dry wash. I already knew that we were going to be hiking back down to the mine in the dark anyway, so I decided to follow the trail for a little ways. I soon discovered that the trail had been created by miners in the past as I came across the old miner’s cabin and the small prospect next to it. That was a real treat as, obviously, very few people know it is there and so it still had a large number of artifacts around, which allowed us to really understand what the lonely life of the miner there must have been like. We hiked down in the dark and drove out in the dark (which wasn’t easy), but it was worth it to explore this mine and to see the forgotten miner’s cabin. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Great Finds At A Gold Mine In The Sierras - Part 2
 
23:40
Coincidentally, the adits we discovered during this full day of exploring were progressively older. So, they make for an interesting walk back in time that happens to be in chronological order. The adit we explored in the first video was last worked in the 1960s or 1970s, while the adit seen in this video was likely last worked around the 1930s. I say “likely” because with many of these older mines, it is difficult – and often impossible – to find detailed records. Often, there are no records at all to be found in the public domain. As you undoubtedly observed, the adit I explored in this video was not the most pleasant one and, as such, I imagine you will not be shocked to learn that it did not make it onto my “Favorite Abandoned Mines” list. This one really ticked a lot of the “unpleasant” boxes. Bad air? Check. Deep, sucking mud? Check. Unstable rock overhead? Check. Difficult to access? Check. That orange, sucking mud is something that I associate with underground placer mines as that is the only place I have seen it. Many viewers have compared it to orange mud that B.C. Frank encountered in Anyox. However, there are some significant differences. Perhaps the most significant is that this “mine mud” is very dense. It will not wash away unless it is subjected to intense pressure. Furthermore, it develops a hard crust on the surface – almost like a rust. One can almost, but not quite, walk on this crust. Instead, one has to push through it like an icebreaker, which is quite a lot of work when one is also fighting through the sucking mud underneath. Some underground placer mines are so choked with this mud that it is not possible to proceed beyond a wall of mud that has formed. To confuse matters more, however, some underground placer mines don’t have this mud at all. This “mine mud” flows down from the underground placer deposits (ancient river channels), but it is not clear to me why some sections of the ancient river channels produce this awful mud in mines and other sections do not produce it at all. I am talking about mines that are very close to each other too, not in different mining districts. Contrary to how it might look in the video, I was not using a candle to illuminate the haulage adit. Instead, I was using two bright (1000+ lumens each) lights with fresh batteries. That dark rock just swallows up the light to an incredible degree. Fortunately, the adits that Mr. McBride located across the creek while I was slopping around in the mud with this adit – which will be seen in the third (and final) video in this series - more than make up for the setbacks at these first two adits. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Flooded Gold Mine Insanity in Northern California!
 
14:10
Where do you take a person who has NEVER explored the inside of an abandoned mine before but really wants to? You take them to a flooded abandoned gold mine, of course! Drew, who is totally new to abandoned mine exploration, joined me for a day of underground exploration and documentation in northern California. We hit-up two big abandoned gold mines that were major producers back in the late 1800s and since. The first mine in the video crushed over 9000 tons of ore during its first year of operation! That's a lot of ore! The second mine in the video was reported as having nearly 10 miles of tunnels and was actually two large mines connected by a single tunnel. Nowadays these two large gold mines are abandoned and flooded with cold water. This is our hike to and exploration of the accessible workings of these two fascinating abandoned mines. Enjoy!

Mother Nature Saves An Old Gold Mine
 
10:28
We were actually on our way back from exploring another abandoned mine (I haven’t posted the video on that one yet), when I happened to glance over and noticed that distinctive look of the waste rock piles created by miners tunneling into the side of a hill to form an adit... We were tired after a long day and I was absolutely convinced that this adit would be eroded shut given the terrain we were in, but one must always check these things to be sure. And this site is an example of why - lo and behold, to my astonishment, the adit was indeed open! An adit that punches in through hard rock will have a better chance of remaining open for a while unless it is in a crumbly rock that sloughs off and blocks the portal. However, an adit that is run in through dirt almost always quickly erodes shut as the loose material slides down and blocks the entrance. This is particularly the case in a forest setting where you have lots of leaves and pine needles helping to build up the soil and also rain and melting snow to assist in washing debris down in front of the portal. Sometimes viewers complain that I don’t provide more details on the history of an abandoned mine or on the gold production of a mine. That is understandable as such details would be interesting. However, what they don’t understand is that there are literally tens of thousands of abandoned mines scattered across California, Nevada, Oregon and the other western states. Many of these abandoned mines, especially those that operated prior to the 20th century, simply have no surviving documentation on them. We have located dozens and dozens of mines that appear on no maps and have no documentation at all on them (and, trust me, we dig deep in researching these). The miners that worked these mines are long departed from this world and their friends and relatives never knew the exact location or didn’t care enough to pass on such information. Written records, if they ever existed, are lost or discarded… After a generation or two, these mines are lost and it is just local wildlife that knows of their existence or a fortunate individual that happens to stumble across them. Consider this mine, for instance, which is a complete mystery… You probably had a handful of miners (at most) living here in the forest that worked this site for a few years (at the very most) before the veins petered out. Given the simplicity of the workings, they wouldn’t have had maps. And, don’t forget, that federal income tax in the United States was not created until 1913 (One could observe that our country seemed to do alright without income taxes and the large government that is funded by those income taxes). So, tax records are a potential source of information on a contemporary mine, but would not be for an older mine. The miners may have had a verbal agreement over the sharing of the gold they produced, which would be another area where no written records would exist. Really, it would be quite common for a mine like this to only have written records for the purchase of supplies (dynamite, food, etc.) in the form of receipts and claim documents. No one would have bothered to keep receipts for long and they wouldn’t have conveyed any information about the mine anyway. And, as anyone that has ever visited a BLM office to file a claim can tell you, the records on mining claims are notoriously vague, often entered incorrectly, often have missing sections (this is particularly true of older claim documents), etc. And, sometimes, a mine is so distant and remote, that the miner(s) working there wouldn’t even have bothered with filing a claim. Do you see how these circumstances work together to erase abandoned mines from history? ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Creepy Sounds Captured in an Abandoned Mine While Reviewing the ThruNite TN12 Flashlight
 
14:51
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.

We Found An Abandoned Town Hidden in the Arizona Mountains.
 
20:14
This was probably my favorite place to explore ever. Hidden in the Arizona mountains sets Ruby, AZ the most well preserved ghost towns to exist.Also i hate that i must say this however the town was abandoned in the 40's but it was founded over 150 years ago making a 200 + year old town. So before you comment understand that.

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. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration
Exploring Italy's Monte Arsiccio Mine: Part 1 - (Lots Of) Surface Buildings & Equipment
 
31:59
I wasn’t sure what to expect when it came to exploring abandoned mines in Italy, but I did not expect them to be as impressive as they have turned out to be… This series will be the first of several abandoned mines in Italy that I have explored – and one of these was the best abandoned mine that I have ever explored by a significant margin! There will be four videos in this series on the Monte Arsiccio Mine. For the rockheads, there is some interesting geology present at the Monte Arsiccio Mine. The basic deposits here are barite, pyrite and iron oxides. However, within these deposits, geologists have located routhierite (a rare sulfosalt) as well as ankangite, a rare member of the hollandite structural family (Google it if you wish to know more about the geology at this abandoned mine as there is plenty of geological research and reports out there on this site that are in English). It was difficult to find much in the way of records on this mine (outside of the geology), but, as I understand it, the most recent operations at this mine ceased in 1989. This abandoned mine is on public land in Italy. It is not private property and it is not in the middle of nowhere. It is in the Apuan Alps in Tuscany and is near a fairly large population center. Therefore, it was absolutely incredible to me to see how much equipment was still at this mine and also to even see the entrances to the mine open at all. As impressive as this site is, I’m afraid that I might have missed some things. The blackberries and vines could easily have hidden the entrance to another adit somewhere or covered up some fantastic equipment. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We have fun doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

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.
