This movie is the last remaining part of footage from an old video cassette that I owned. I believe that it is still available from the Empire Mines State Park. I do not own the copyright to this movie and this is being posted here under YouTube's Guidelines for informational and teaching purposes. Then I added pictures on my own of the Malakoff State park from days gone past when mining was active in the area to the end of this movie. This is a great addition to this hydraulic mining playlist, so watch history being taught from long ago & then learn & 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!

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.

Desert Gold Mines: Exploring the Ten-Mile Tunnel
 
05:27
The Ten-Mile Tunnel is an abandoned Arizona gold mine dating back to the late 1800s. Deep in the mine, I found an inclined shaft going both downward and upward. Later research on this particular mine revealed that this inclined shaft is approximately 1100 feet long. That warrants a return visit with more people so we can descend the inclined shaft to the lower levels and see what's down there. We've only just cracked the surface on this particular mine! Stay tuned!
The California Gold Rush Experience: Facts, Miners, Timeline, Towns (1998)
 
01:24:51
The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0671255371/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0671255371&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=e466e8af410d510aab178d97d3765afc The first to hear confirmed information about gold in California were residents of Oregon, the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), western Mexico, and Central America. They were the first to go there in late 1848. All told, the news of gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad. Of the 300,000, approximately half arrived by sea and half came overland from the east, on the California Trail and the Gila River trail. The gold-seekers, called "forty-niners" (as a reference to 1849), often faced substantial hardships on the trip. While most of the newly arrived were Americans, the Gold Rush attracted tens of thousands from Latin America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. At first, the gold nuggets could be picked up off the ground. Later, gold was recovered from streams and riverbeds using simple techniques, such as panning. More sophisticated methods were developed and later adopted elsewhere. At its peak, technological advances reached a point where significant financing was required, increasing the proportion of gold companies to individual miners. Gold worth tens of billions of today's dollars was recovered, which led to great wealth for a few. However, many returned home with little more than what they had started with. The effects of the Gold Rush were substantial. San Francisco grew from a small settlement of about 200 residents in 1846 to a boomtown of about 36,000 by 1852. Roads and other towns were built throughout California. In 1849 a state constitution was written, and a governor and legislature were chosen. California became a state as part of the Compromise of 1850. New methods of transportation developed as steamships came into regular service. By 1869 railroads were built across the country from California to the eastern United States. Agriculture and ranching expanded throughout the state to meet the needs of the settlers. At the beginning of the Gold Rush, there was no law regarding property rights in the goldfields and a system of "staking claims" was developed. The Gold Rush also resulted in attacks on Native Americans, who were forcibly removed from their lands. An estimated 100,000 California Indians died between 1848 and 1868, and some 4,500 of them were murdered. Gold mining also caused environmental harm to rivers and lakes. Overnight California gained the international reputation as the "golden state".[138] Generations of immigrants have been attracted by the California Dream. California farmers,[139] oil drillers,[140] movie makers,[141] airplane builders,[142] and "dot-com" entrepreneurs have each had their boom times in the decades after the Gold Rush.[143] The literary history of the Gold Rush is reflected in the works of Mark Twain (The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County), Bret Harte (A Millionaire of Rough-and-Ready), Joaquin Miller (Life Amongst the Modocs), and many others.[29][144] Included among the modern legacies of the California Gold Rush are the California state motto, "Eureka" ("I have found it"), Gold Rush images on the California State Seal,[145] and the state nickname, "The Golden State", as well as place names, such as Placer County, Rough and Ready, Placerville (formerly named "Dry Diggings" and then "Hangtown" during rush time), Whiskeytown, Drytown, Angels Camp, Happy Camp, and Sawyers Bar. The San Francisco 49ers National Football League team, and the similarly named athletic teams of California State University, Long Beach, are named for the prospectors of the California Gold Rush. In addition. the standard route shield of state highways in California is in the shape of a miner's spade to honor the California Gold Rush.[146][147] Today, aptly named State Route 49 travels through the Sierra Nevada foothills, connecting many Gold Rush-era towns such as Placerville, Auburn, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Coloma, Jackson, and Sonora.[148] This state highway also passes very near Columbia State Historic Park, a protected area encompassing the historic business district of the town of Columbia; the park has preserved many Gold Rush-era buildings, which are presently occupied by tourist-oriented businesses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_gold_rush

Eco-mine tour: A first-hand experience of the life of a miner
 
02:17
If you are craving a different kind of adventure, head to the Western Coalfields coal mines in Saoner, 45 km from Nagpur for a trip into the deep, dank interiors of the earth. The Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) run eco-mine tour will give you a glimpse into the lives of miners who work against the forces of nature. Tourists enter the mine on a unique man-rider system for the first 200 metres. The remaining 1-km trail is on foot. During the tour, tourists experience the interiors of a coal mine and are made aware of various safety measures in place to ensure safety of workers. DM Gokhale, the general manager of the Western Coalfields Ltd feels people tend to connect mines with what they have seen in the movies. So when they go deep underground, it’s a new discovery for them. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to our channel: http://read.ht/fLZ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/htTweets Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hindustantimes iOS:- http://m.onelink.me/bcae8b2d Android:- http://m.onelink.me/986f584a Watch more videos at: http://www.hindustantimes.com/video hindustantimes.com © 2016

Historic Gold Mine & Mill Deep In The Forest – Part 1
 
16:27
This mine was once made up of several smaller claims and the earliest records I can find on those date back to 1867. However, by the turn of the last century (1900), these appear to have all been consolidated into the large operation seen in the video. Given the large number of adits and trenches, the number of collapsed structures (I only showed a small number of them in the video), the large stamp mill and the need for a cemetery, this was obviously a significant mining community during its heyday. The guys I explored this site with are the Gold Country Explorers and credit goes to them for locating it. Gold Country Explorers find and post pictures of some really awesome places. You can find a link to their material here: https://www.facebook.com/Gold-Country-Explorers-850167371691275/ To see one of those monster Fairbanks-Morse stationary engines running (and it is worth seeing), check out the great video at the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_0xifuTqVA An early (1800s) California State Mining Bureau report had this to say about the mill at the site: “A 20-stamp mill was located on the east side of the creek, with 900-pound stamps driven by a Knight wheel under 94’ of head from a 1,650’ long ditch; only one battery of stamps was reported as being in running order.” A later report (1900s) adds these additional details about the mill: “The mill at this time is described as possessing a 50-ton daily capacity, with a jaw crusher, 10 stamps, and ball mill in closed circuit with a Dorr classifier. Riffles were set below the stamps, and amalgamation plates below the ball mill. Three Fagergren flotation cells were followed by two Kraut cleaner-cells. A 200-hp diesel engine drove a generator to supply electric power, and a 440 cfm compressor was driven by a 100-hp motor.” Now, you may notice a discrepancy here as the first description mentions twenty stamps and the second description mentions ten stamps. As you saw in the video, the ruins of the mill at the mine site now has ten stamps. So, does that mean that an earlier mill was torn down and replaced by a new mill? Possibly. However, in the picture in the video, which was taken in 1937, a flume can be clearly seen leading toward the mill. Presumably, it was still being used when the photograph was taken because it appears to be maintained and in good condition. So, perhaps the mill was remodeled or rehabbed and ten stamps were taken away? The first report mentions that only one battery was in working order… In further support of this idea is the manufacturer’s stamp on the stamp mill itself. Union Iron Works of San Francisco ceased to be an independent company in 1902 when it was absorbed into a conglomerate called the United States Shipbuilding Company. This, therefore, dates the stamp mill to the time of the original report and would seem to suggest that it is the same mill. The last records of work being done at this mine date to 1939. You can perhaps better understand how everything is laid out at this abandoned gold mine by knowing that I did not backtrack or meander at all during the video, but continued in a steady downstream direction. So, the order in which objects of interest appear in the video are the order in which they are laid out across this sprawling site. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Logging Giant Redwood Trees: "Redwood Saga" 1946; How Trees Were Logged in Northern California

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logging_in_the_Sierra_Nevada Logging in the Californian Sierra Nevada arose from the need to support growing communities in the area. The Gold Rush created a high demand for timber to build housing, for mining procedures, and especially to build railroads. In these days use was unregulated and in the first 20 years after the rush, a third of the timber in the Sierra Nevada was logged . Concern for the forests created a movement towards conservation at the turn of the 19th century creating state and national parks (Yosemite, Sequoia and Grant Grove) and forest reserves. The Sierra Club, a non-governmental organization (NGO), was founded around this time by the famous preservationist John Muir. Between 1900 and 1940 agencies like the U.S. Forest Service and The National Park Service regulated the use of the Sierra Nevada's resources. The economy boom after World War II dramatically increased timber production in the Sierras using clear-cutting as the dominant form of logging. Methods One method of logging is clear-cutting, removing all trees from a tract of land, which has caused major disturbances in the Sierra Nevada environment leaving patches of densely packed, single-specie, same-aged, tree plantations among the diverse old growth forest. Low-impact logging meets current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. This typically means smaller periodic harvests and removing the worst trees to eliminate danger to high value trees... Environmental effects Logging practices have altered the majority of the native forests, transforming them into simplified forests of same-aged trees with a reduced ecological resilience[citation needed]. These disturbed stands are especially prone to catastrophic fire and mortality due to beetle infestation and disease. It has also caused fragmentation and increased edge effect, along with releasing pesticides and chemicals into the water and land. In the Sierra's there are 218 endemic plant species that are considered rare or threatened, and three plant species are believed to be extinct. Sixty-nine terrestrial vertebrate species are considered at risk by government agencies... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logging http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequoia_sempervirens Sequoia sempervirens is the sole living species of the genus Sequoia in the cypress family Cupressaceae (formerly treated in Taxodiaceae). Common names include coast redwood, California redwood, and giant redwood. It is an evergreen, long-lived, monoecious tree living 1200--1800 years or more. This species includes the tallest trees on Earth, reaching up to 379 feet (115.5 m) in height (without the roots) and up to 26 feet (7.9 m) in diameter at breast height. Before commercial logging and clearing began by the 1850s, this massive tree occurred naturally in an estimated 2,100,000 acres (8,500 km2) along much of coastal California (excluding southern California where rainfall is not sufficient) and the southwestern corner of coastal Oregon within the United States. It is estimated that more than 95% of the original old-growth redwood forest has been cut down, due to its excellent properties for use as lumber in construction. The name sequoia sometimes refers to the subfamily Sequoioideae, which includes S. sempervirens along with Sequoiadendron (giant sequoia) and Metasequoia (dawn redwood). On its own, the term redwood usually refers to the coast redwood, which is covered in this article, and not to the other two species... Although coast redwoods are currently the world's tallest trees, it is possible that Australian mountain ash and Douglas-fir trees were taller—exceeding 400 feet (120 m)—before the commercial logging of the 19th and 20th centuries... There is fairly solid evidence that before logging, coast redwoods were the world's largest trees, with specimens measured at over 55,000 cubic feet (1,600 m3) (660,000 board feet)...

Finding The Gass Mine
 
08:17
It was pure luck (and Mr McBride's nose) that brought us to this one as we had no idea of its existence... And it wasn’t just us – none of the local historians (including those that have written books on the mining history of this area) knew about this mine either when told about it. This mine eroded shut ages ago and had been lost to history. However, a particularly dry season in the area caused the soil to lose some of its cohesion, leading a portion of the roof of the mine to collapse and to expose its secrets. This provided just enough of an opening to the surface for us to discover this mine and for me to squeeze inside. Upon dropping into the mine, I realized that the collapse that revealed the mine was pretty recent and that no had been inside the mine for a very, very long time – probably at least for 100 years. It is an old mine, as one can clearly see the pick marks on the walls and no sign of any modern equipment. There was no sign that any ore cart rails had ever been present either as even in mines where the rails have been completely removed, one can still see the indentations where the ties were. So, it is quite possible that the miners lugged the ore and waste rock out by hand or by using animals. The timbers inside the mine were shriveled up and rotted away to almost nothing, indicating that they were extremely old. The artifacts we discovered around the mine dated to around the middle of the 1800s. And, judging by the size of the waste rock pile, this was a significant mine in its day. This was one of those extraordinary discoveries that a mine explorer lives for and, undoubtedly, this is the first video footage to ever emerge of this virgin mine. ***** 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.

Exploring The Disappearing Continental Mine - Part 1 of 2
 
25:35
It is difficult to go wrong with abandoned tungsten mines and this one proved to be no exception to our prior experiences... As with much of Nevada, it was silver that brought early prospectors and miners to this mining district in the 1860s. However, the rich silver ore eventually ran out and activity tapered off until World War I when tungsten deposits were discovered here. It was not until large deposits were discovered in the 1930s though that the mining of the tungsten began on a significant scale. World War II created an insatiable demand for tungsten and that period is when this particular mine was started. Operations continued here for more than a decade until falling tungsten prices in the late 1950s caused the mining operation to be abandoned. I didn’t have the perception that this mine was particularly sketchy when I was underground shooting it, but looking at it while I was editing the video, I realized I had forgotten how many caved sections there were. We have been in tungsten mines older than this one where there is scarcely a pebble out of place. So, it is curious that this mine was in such rough shape. Really, it seems that almost all of the stopes have collapsed to varying degrees. And given the number of (and the size of) the ore chutes it seems fairly safe to assume that the hill above the haulage adit was practically hollowed out.

An Unusual Gold Mine In Nevada
 
23:44
In this video, I endeavor to spare you, my dear viewers, from having to make the long drive to the middle of nowhere in Nevada (along with the associated costs for fuel and damage to your vehicle on the rough road in). In addition, you are able to avoid the relatively long, hot hike up to this abandoned mine. And, of course, you are also spared from needing to spend any time underground in this sketchy abandoned mine as well. Now don’t get me wrong, we (usually) enjoy this sort of thing, but most probably would not… The mineral potential of this area was first recognized in the mid-1800s and a town and mill sprang up around the areas in the canyon that looked most promising very shortly thereafter. However, no one appears to have gotten rich here and (as with countless mining towns) everything slowly faded away, interspersed with only brief flurries of activity when new discoveries or economic conditions temporarily brought miners out into the hills again. There are surprisingly few records available on this specific mine. Although it is mentioned that work took place here in the 1930s, the only years that we could find production data for were for two years in the 1940s. This was primarily a gold mine, but some silver was extracted here as well. The official production figures were not terribly inspiring, but it seems that contemporary mining companies still poke around this site from time to time – even in those small, fractured stopes underground as could be seen from the surveyor’s flags... Although samples have been taken, to my knowledge, no modern exploratory work has been conducted.

The Pioneer Mine & The Comet Tunnel - Part 2
 
09:06
Construction of the Comet Tunnel was started in 1853 and it was developed to drain the Pioneer Mine. It took more than ten years of steady tunneling to reach the Pioneer Mine at a cost of about $60,000. The tunnel ended up approximately 100 feet beneath the Pioneer Mine and two shafts connected to the surface. The Comet Tunnel runs in excess of 2,000 feet to reach the Pioneer Mine and drains into the Deacon Long Ravine, which drains into Slate Creek.

Exploring The Abandoned Coyote Mesa Mine - Part 2 of 2
 
26:52
This mine is a great example as to why I enjoy exploring abandoned mines in Nevada so much… As you can see, the mine is still in great shape. We didn’t have to hike for hours through thick brush or down steep canyons to get to the mine. And I, personally, love the vast, open and unpopulated deserts of Nevada. The downside of exploring abandoned mines in Nevada though is that their relative accessibility means that the mines are more likely to have been picked over by “collectors” and vandals. Whereas, in the areas we explore in the Sierra Nevadas of California, we have found mines that no one has been inside for a century or more. The downsides of the Sierra Nevadas are that the wet conditions have normally destroyed any mining artifacts that have been left behind, have made it far more likely that a mine will be collapsed or eroded shut and, well, it just isn’t as fun to slog through muddy, flooded mines. So, the ideal, I suppose, is to discover those hidden mines in Nevada that one REALLY has to work to get to, but that very few (or no) people know of. As I mentioned in the description in the first video in this series, this was a tungsten mine. Miners in our viewing audience have suggested that this mine possibly did not operate for more than a few months once it was up and running with a full crew. This estimate is based on the amount of work that a crew of professional miners with modern (at the time) mining equipment such as pneumatic drills and dynamite could have achieved. In other words, a team of experienced miners, operating in an era with fewer rules, regulations and permits and a booming demand for tungsten could have really ripped through this mountain. So, perhaps the miners swept in, extracted the good ore at a nice profit, and then moved on to another location? Or, perhaps the mine was never profitable at all and that is why this mountain was not hollowed out more? The records I located do not indicate why the mine ceased operations. One document I saw though suggested that production at this mine ran for 25 years! If that is accurate, then the miners were working at a very leisurely pace as the underground workings beneath the shaft did not amount to more than a few hundred feet either… Sometimes it is very difficult to find accurate (or any) information on these old abandoned mines. Regardless, it was a fun mine to explore and a good camping spot and that’s ultimately what matters, right? ***** 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.

The Kensington Mine: Happy To See A Collapse?
 
16:56
This large, ambitious adit was driven more than 6,000 feet into the hills you saw in the introduction to the video in search of rich silver ore. Those hills, by the way, are absolutely covered in Nevada mining history from the 1800s. Foundations, collapsed adits and shafts, gated shafts, small open adits, crumbling stone buildings, can dumps… There are essentially limitless exploration possibilities here for those interested in history and ghost towns. I have not been able to verify this information, but I have read that the adit we explored in this video was started in the 1870s and that a tram ran down the mountain to the mill seen in the introduction. The most striking moment in exploring this abandoned mine for us was when we reached the collapsed section of the adit and first heard the roaring sound described in the video. It was a huge volume of water! From our perspective inside of the adit, it sounded like the Niagara Falls was cascading down behind the, apparently, thin caved section between us and the torrent of water. As I explained in the video, we know that there were several crosscuts driven from this adit underneath other mines. Some of these crosscuts had raises pushed up to connect with the lower workings of these other mines. As such, the adit we explored is now acting as a massive drain tunnel for multiple mines. So, it is no wonder that we heard so much water roaring down back there! I have never heard of a situation like this before involving multiple mines and have certainly never heard this volume of water in a mine before. I would be very curious to see how it looks behind the caved section and to learn where all of this water flows. Anyone want to volunteer to find a way in?

The techniques used to build this diorama can be used whether you’re building a huge model railroad or just a tiny little master piece of a model, you can also use these techniques for war gaming scenery however when it comes to sealing the scenery with Woodland Scenics Scenic Cement I’d use it undiluted for extra strength. The hot wire tools I use in the video are supplied from ‘The Hot Wire Foam Factory’ and I’m giving you my 100% honest opinion that these tools are absolutely fantastic! This diorama idea has been on the cards for over 12 months and it was not until I started to use the hot wire tools that I was able to get the results I was after! I highly recommend these tools!

Exploring the Abandoned Golden Star Mine (Part 1 of 3)
 
18:38
In this video, we begin our exploration of a mid-sized tungsten mine called the Golden Star Mine. This mine was worked on several levels, though the main haulage level was by far the most extensive. The main adit is almost sealed shut so it's a good thing we got here when we did. The mine was operated primarily in the 1930's when over 30 men were employed at the mine. The ore was mined via shrinkage stoping methods and produced 50 tons of ore per day. The main level consists of an 800ft long cross-cut tunnel and several thousand feet of other drifts and cross-cuts. There are also several winzes descending down to unexplored levels. In upcoming videos, we'll see massive stopes, intricate timbering, and more! Stay tuned!
