Boom Town To Ghost Town ( Coolgardie )
 
04:26
Coolgardie is a small town in Western Australia, 558 kilometres (347 mi) east of the state capital, Perth. It has a population of approximately 1,000 people.[1] Although Coolgardie is now known to most Western Australians as a tourist town and a mining ghost town, it was once the third largest town in Western Australia (after Perth and Fremantle). At this time, mining of alluvial gold was a major industry and supplied the flagging economy with new hope. Many miners suffered under the harsh conditions, but for a few, their finds made the hard work worthwhile. Most men, however, left poorer than they had started off, with their hopes dashed. The town was founded in 1892, when gold was discovered in the area.[4] Australia had seen several major gold rushes over the previous three decades, mostly centred on the east coast, but these had mostly been exhausted by the 1890s. With the discovery of a new goldfield, an entire new gold rush began, with thousands flocking to the area. By 1898, Coolgardie was the third largest town in the colony, with an estimated population of 5,008 (3,151 men and 1,857 women).[5] At its peak, 700 mining companies based in Coolgardie were registered with the London Stock Exchange. The town also supported a wide variety of businesses and services, including the railway connection between Perth and Kalgoorlie,[6] a swimming pool (first public baths in the state), many hotels and several newspapers. The value of Coolgardie to the colony in the late 1890s was so very significant that it was used as leverage to force Western Australia to join the Australian federation - Britain and the eastern colonies threatened to create a new state to be named Auralia around Coolgardie and other regional goldfields, such as Kalgoorlie, if the government in Perth did not agree to hold a referendum on federation. The Western Australian government reluctantly complied and a referendum was held just in time to become a founding state in the new federation. When federation did occur in 1901, Coolgardie was the centre of a federal electorate, the Division of Coolgardie. Soon after in November 1901, Alf Morgans from the state electorate of Coolgardie briefly became Premier of Western Australia. Albert Thomas, also of Coolgardie, was elected the first Member of Dundas, an electoral division south of Coolgardie. However, the gold began to decrease in the early 1900s, and by World War I, the town was in serious decline. The federal electorate was abolished in 1913 due to the diminished population, as many of its residents left for other towns where the gold was still plentiful, and it soon ceased to be a municipality. The situation remained unchanged throughout the century, as its population slipped to around 200 and it became a virtual ghost town. An example of this decline is that, in March 1896, Coolgardie's main street was lit by an electric light, but by April 1924, the same street was lit by four hurricane lamps. Despite this, many of the buildings from the town's peak were retained, which in recent years has helped start a small revival in the town's fortunes. The development of a tourist industry has once again created some employment in the town, resulting in a small increase in population. Coolgardie appears to be no longer in danger of dying. _____________________________________ Music By - Midnight Oil.

KITCHENER OLD MINE BY DRONE

Kitchener is a small town in the City of Cessnock, in the Hunter Region in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Kitchener is located 5 kilometres south of the town of Cessnock, NSW and is adjacent to Werakata National Park and the Aberdare State Forest. The town is named after Lord Kitchener, British secretary for War from July 1914.[2] Kitchener was the location of the Aberdare Central Colliery which was developed by Caledonian Collieries Ltd during World War I.[citation needed] The historic mine site has been preserved as a Heritage Park (including the poppet head structure). A number of the dwellings where originally occupied by mine management. In 1914, the mine employed 93 people; four years later it employed 287. In July 1943, a large fire caused the mine to close for 12 months. The mine was closed in November 1961. The coal holding lease is still retained by Coal and Allied Limited.[3] In 2009, a Chinese owned mining company, Austar, was granted approval to construct a surface infrastructure site just south of Kitchener. This facility was built to service the company's Longwall Top Coal Caving mining of the Greta Coal Seam (in the mine previously known as the Southland Coal Mine) south of Kitchener

Australia's Gold Miners Struggle With Prices, Costs

SYDNEY—Australia's gold producers are struggling to deal with the dual blow from rising costs and falling prices, casting a shadow over earnings results that are due next month. The latest production reports from Newcrest Mining Ltd., Australia's largest listed gold miner, and the smaller OZ Minerals Ltd. Thursday pointed to higher costs and tighter margins—underscoring the challenge facing producers after gold's biggest quarterly drop in decades. Gold prices have fallen more than 20% since the start of January amid expectations the U.S. would start to taper its program of monetary easing as its economy stabilizes, putting miners of the precious ...

Today a historic landscape in Great Basin National Park, Johnson Lake Mine's story actually begins in the early part of the 1900s, when the mineral tungsten was first discovered in the southern Snake Range. At Johnson Lake Mine tungsten was extracted and milled onsite and then transported a great distance to be refined and then used to make alloy steel. Alloy steel was used to create things like weapons, tanks, and transmitter radios during World War I.

Its current approximate population is 30,000. For eastward train travellers, on the trans-continental "Indian Pacific" service, Kalgoorlie is the last town encountered for hundreds of kilometres before entering the vast expanse of the Nullarbor Plain. The "Prospector" train run by Transwa provides daily services to Perth In June 1893, prospectors Patrick (Paddy) Hannan, Tom Flanagan, and Dan O'Shea were travelling to Mt Youle when one of their horses cast a shoe. During the resultant halt in their journey, the men noticed signs of gold in the area, and decided to stay put. On June 17, 1893, Hannan filed a Reward Claim, leading to hundreds of men swarming to the area in search of gold and Kalgoorlie was born. The mining of gold, along with other metals such as nickel, has been a major industry in Kalgoorlie ever since. The concentrated area of large gold mines surrounding the original Hannan find is often referred to as the Golden Mile, and is considered by some to be the richest square mile of earth on the planet. The town's population was about 30,000 people in 1903. DON PUGH producer: Don Pugh

The town's population was about 30,000 people in 1903. The narrow gauge Government railway line reached Kalgoorlie in the 1896, and the main named railway service from Perth was the overnight sleeper train The Westland which ran until the 1970s. In 1917, a standard gauge railway line was completed, connecting Kalgoorlie to the city of Port Augusta, South Australia, across 2000 km of desert, and consequently the rest of the eastern states. The standardisation of the railway connecting Perth (which changed route from the narrow gauge route) in 1968 made it possible for rail travel from Perth to Sydney - and the Indian Pacific rail service commenced soon after. Places, famous or infamous, that Kalgoorlie is noted for include its water pipeline, designed by C. Y. O'Connor, which brings in fresh water from Mundaring Weir near Perth; its Hay Street brothels (the street itself was apparently named after Hay Street, Perth); its two-up school; the goldfields railway loopline; the Kalgoorlie Town Hall; the Paddy Hannan statue/drinking fountain; the Super Pit; and Mt Charlotte lookout. Its main street is Hannan Street, named after the town's founder. The town of Kalgoorlie and the shire of Boulder amalgamated on February 1, 1989 to become the city of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalgoorlie DON PUGH producer: Don Pugh

Cue, Western Australia (HD)
 
05:17
Cue, Western Australia (HD) - Cue, WA Tourism and vacation Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube The small town of Cue in Western Australia's Murchison Region is to me a particularly interesting outback town. Like so many old WA mining towns, Cue has thrived and floundered over the years with times of boom and bust. The town was established in 1893 following the discovery of gold in the area the year before, which sparked a gold rush to the remote Murchison Region desert. In its heyday at the beginning of the twentieth century Cue was home to over 10000 people, a thriving and prosperous town known as "The Queen of the Murchison". These days things couldn't be more different. With a population of less than 300, Cue is very close to being a ghost town. When we visited Cue earlier this year the wide streets were still and silent beneath a big blue desert sky. The whole time we were there we didn't see a single soul walking around town and we noticed a good number of the buildings were abandoned or up for lease. The empty streets of Cue would have felt really quite spooky if it weren't for the constant parade of roadtrains roaring through on their way between Perth and the Pilbara carrying fuel and massive pieces of mining equipment. This for me is what made Cue such a memorable place -- the decay and ghostliness of the semi-abandoned town, and the way it felt as if time had stood still there ever since the 1930′s. However I have a feeling that Cue might be quite a different place in a few years time as the shire seems to be going to some effort to restore the town's buildings to their former glory and attract more visitors to the town and surrounding region. And with rumours of a new big mine opening in the area, the population could soon be set to rise again. Gracious Heritage Architecture in Cue =========================== Walking around the streets of Cue feel like stepping back in time. Not much appears to have changed on the main street over the years. Almost all of the buildings are the original ones that were built in the 1890′s and 1900′s -- some still serving their original purpose, some beautifully restored and others abandoned and left to ruin. While a lot of the old heritage Goldrush-era buildings look crumbling and decrepit, I can still understand why Cue's town slogan is "Queen of the Murchison". Some of the old sandstone buildings sure are grand for a dusty outpost in the middle of nowhere! Visiting and Exploring Around Cue, Western Australia =============================== If you happen to be heading up Great Northern Highway for any reason -- on your way to Karijini and the Pilbara perhaps -- then I highly recommend making a stop in Cue. It is an interesting and memorable place to spend some time in and is well-situated for a stopover on a long outback drive, being 650km from Perth and approximately half way to Newman and Karijini. If you've got a bit of time to spare while you're in the area, it's well worth taking a half-day detour westwards out to Walga Rock and the ghost town Big Bell. Things to See and Do in and Around Cue, Western Australia ================================ Go for a drive or walk around town and have a look at the interesting and beautiful old heritage buildings. Government Buildings -- police station, court house and post office Gentleman's Club (now the shire office) Masonic Lodge building Bank of New South Wales building Rotunda (site of the town's first well) Pensioner huts and old gaol (part of the caravan park) Check out the historical photograph collection in the shire office building (formerly the town Gentleman's Club) to gain some more context to the history of Cue. Drive up to the top of the Radio Tower Hill (Cue Lookout) for views over the town, the nearby mines, and horizon-to-horizon dry red earth. A good idea is to pick up the brochure and follow the Cue Heritage Trail, which will take around to the main attractions in the surrounding area and provide interesting background info. Try fossicking for gold -- you never know, you could get lucky! In late winter and spring the beautiful desert wildflowers bloom to life, carpeting the red dusty ground in fields of colour. This is the best time of year to visit Cue and explore the surrounding country. Camp out for the night or just enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife at Lake Nallan, a nature reserve about 24km north of Cue Or camp/picnic at Milly Soak, 16km north of Cue. Also has a small pioneer cemetery and well Head out west along Austin Downs Road to Walga Rock to see the cave paintings, climb the rock and perhaps camp there for the night. While in the area, check out what remains of Big Bell, a ghost town.

Prodigy Gold Magino Mine Tour (created by resourceINTELLIGENCE)
 
02:14
Prodigy Gold's lead project is the advanced Magino mine project, located northeast of Wawa, Ontario. Prodigy is currently evaluating the development of Magino as an open-pit mining opportunity with the potential for deeper, higher grade gold production. An updated Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Magino Mine, was announced in December 2011. The economics of the project are outstanding, including an NPV over $939 million (5% discount), almost three times higher than the previous project NPV. The PEA calls for production capacity of 20,000 tpd. Gold would be recovered from the open pit mine at a rate of 249,300 ounces per year, or 2.6 million ounces of gold over a mine life of 11 years.

Kanowna nr Kalgoorlie, WA
 
01:01
Kanowna is a ghost town in the Goldfields region of Western Australia. It is located about 20 km east of Kalgoorlie. After the discovery of gold in the area in 1893, the townsite was gazetted in 1894.[1] and the population grew from 2,500 in 1897 to over 12,500 by 1899.[2] However, the alluvial gold supply was rapidly exhausted and underground mines following the outcropping vein produced decreasing amounts of gold, resulting in a slow but steady decrease in the population. The railway station was closed during the Great Depression, and by 1953 the town had been abandoned. The railway station platform, two cemeteries and mine workings are all that is left of the original town of Kanowna. Signs erected by the Kalgoorlie Historical society mark the sites of significant buildings. Increasing gold prices in the late 1970s sparked renewed interest in exploring the geology of the area for new sources of gold. The discovery of a large amount of gold, previously undiscovered because the vein did not reach the surface, made gold mining in the region economically viable again. Mining recommenced in 1986, initially as open-cut mining, before moving to underground mines. As of 2002, the Kanowna Belle mine employed over 300 people.

GOLD Film idea/  Australian gold rush movie
 
01:28
Start of an idea I had about the conflict between gangs, diggers and police during the gold rush in Australia. I shot this on a handy cam on my own. This guy is being chased because of what he has in his bag. He cant go home because he will lead the gun men to his family. This is an ongoing project that i'm playing with to see how much of it i can film on my own with no budget at all. should I make a web series?

KALGOORLIE FOR ONE OF A SERIES ON KALGOORLIE SEE http://video.google.com.au/videosearch?q=DON+PUGH+KALGOORLIE History KAL WESTERN AUSTRALIA In June 1893, prospectors Patrick (Paddy) Hannan, Tom Flanagan, and Dan O'Shea were travelling to Mt Youle when one of their horses cast a shoe. During the resultant halt in their journey, the men noticed signs of gold in the area, and decided to stay put. On June 17, 1893, Hannan filed a Reward Claim, leading to hundreds of men swarming to the area in search of gold and Kalgoorlie was born. The mining of gold, along with other metals such as nickel, has been a major industry in Kalgoorlie ever since. The concentrated area of large gold mines surrounding the original Hannan find is often referred to as the Golden Mile, and is considered by some to be the richest square mile of earth on the planet. The town's population was about 30,000 people in 1903. The narrow gauge Government railway line reached Kalgoorlie in the 1896, and the main named railway service from Perth was the overnight sleeper train The Westland which ran until the 1970s. In 1917, a standard gauge railway line was completed, connecting Kalgoorlie to the city of Port Augusta, South Australia, across 2000 km of desert, and consequently the rest of the eastern states. The standardisation of the railway connecting Perth (which changed route from the narrow gauge route) in 1968 made it possible for rail travel from Perth to Sydney - and the Indian Pacific rail service commenced soon after. Places, famous or infamous, that Kalgoorlie is noted for include its water pipeline, designed by C. Y. O'Connor, which brings in fresh water from Mundaring Weir near Perth; its Hay Street brothels (the street itself was apparently named after Hay Street, Perth); its two-up school; the goldfields railway loopline; the Kalgoorlie Town Hall; the Paddy Hannan statue/drinking fountain; the Super Pit; and Mt Charlotte lookout. Its main street is Hannan Street, named after the town's founder. The town of Kalgoorlie and the shire of Boulder amalgamated on February 1, 1989 to become the city of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalgoorlie DON PUGH

A Commitment to the Mining Industry - Chinese (中国版本)
 
08:33
Today, the demand for mined materials is greater than at any other time in history. World development and increased urbanization are driving sustained dependence on minerals, metals and coal. Energy usage is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades—placing even more emphasis on supply, security, cost and environmental impact issues. As the demand for commodities grows, mining companies need a partner to support them in their efforts. A partner who understands the issues important to the mining industry — like safety, sustainability and productivity. And a partner with the equipment, technologies, end-to-end services and solutions to support their operations. Caterpillar is committed to being that partner.

NHD Movie Australian Gold Rush
 
10:20
Process Paper I chose the Australian gold rush as my topic for my National History Day project, because I've been interested in Australia for a long time. I have always wanted to travel there to see the deserts, animals, the cities. When I decided I would do something based on Australian history I had no idea where to start. I went to Google and typed in "turning points in Australian history". The first thing that came up was the gold rush so I decided to read about it. The more I read the more I realized if anything was a turning point in Australian history it was the gold rush. I first decided to start with a book to go about my research. I worked with my school librarian to .find a book either at our school or other libraries in the area that would send me one to school. The first school declined several times. Then we found a book solely on the Australian gold rush: Gold Australians gold and lost treasures. As we were waiting for the book I used online sources such as Historystudycenter.com. This was very helpful while I was waiting for the book to come. It had newspaper articles from back then and also had secondary sources as well. When the book came it had everything about the gold rush. From the different types of sleuths to the "Eureka Revolt". I to do a documentary because my project is about gold. I wasn't going to write a paper about gold because people would much rather look at gold rather than just hear or read about it. This left me to the performance, website, or documentary. I wasn't going to do the performance because I can't act and I still wouldn't be able to show the gold. It came down to the documentary or website. I chose documentary because it was outside of my comfort zone. I have only done one previous documentary, but I was on a topic I knew and everyone in my family knew, which was my grandfather. This was a completely new topic, I decided I would give it a try. I started out with an outline for my script. I chose the big five main ideas. I then outlined them into smaller sections. I then started writing my script. I also while I was writing my script I was collecting three to seven photos per smaller category. I then recorded my script into eleven different sections. I then used Movie Maker to put the voice over with the photos. My project relates to the theme, because if it were not for the gold rush, Australia could be in four different states of stableness and unity. They could either still be completely separated with some rich districts and some not, be together but have the whole country in poverty, still have the economy and government based on agriculture, or have had all the governments disintegrate and have it be a third world country. That is why I chose The Australian Gold Rush as my National History Day project.

Exploring Bat-Filled Tunnels in the Abandoned California Star Mine
 
13:16
The California Star Mine. This forgotten, abandoned gold mine in a seldom-visited area of the California desert appears to have been a large producer in its day. Now, however, the California Star Mine sits quietly in an inconspicuous desert canyon as it slowly deteriorates and decays. As far as I can tell, the California Star Mine has been abandoned for decades and now serves as a home to bats. Lots of bats, in fact. And other birds, too. And large, green caterpillars that will eventually turn into white-lined sphinx moths. I recently explored three tunnels at the California Star Mine, and one tunnel was home to a colony of around fifty bats that I came across deep inside the mine tunnel. They were hanging from the tunnel ceiling in a large, squirming cluster that was bigger than a basketball. Needless to say, my bright lights and footsteps awakened them from their slumber causing them to drop down gradually and fly and dart all around me as I continued my exploration of the California Star Mine. Outside the mine, I got some excellent close-up footage of fat, green caterpillars that will eventually morph into white-lined sphinx moths. Two other tunnels at the California Star Mine rounded out my investigation of this seldom-visited and forgotten site.
The Abandoned Dead Wind Mine | NV
 
27:53
The final stop on my trip to Nevada with Graham (Mines of the West). The original workings on this property date to the 1860s, with more work being done in the early 1900s. In the later decades of the 20th century this property was massively expanded into a dizzyingly complex underground city with multiple levels, working through and alongside the mining efforts of the past. This modernization included many large buildings to process the materials of such a large operation, including its own power station and post office. For 30 years however this property has sat abandoned, with full access to all the buildings and workings. Thoroughly exploring all the levels would most likely require a week, along with climbing gear due to the endless shafts and raises connecting the many levels. On this trip we explored the main buildings, and small parts of the 2 most accessible adits. I estimate we explored about 10% of this entire property. The modern mining equipment superimposed over much of the older wooden workings was one of the unique features in this mine. In some exploration videos this property is advertised as "Area 51 tunnels" or similar clickbait titles. While in the general area of the famed US Military installation, it is 50+ ground miles to the nearest border, and two mountains would need to be crossed on a direct air route. While there was some Freon testing going on deep in one of the adits, this was just a straightforward mining operation. I believe abandoned sites are amazing to explore in themselves without sensationalizing to the level of a ghost hunters episode. Photos: http://www.jacobarciniega.com IG @jacobarciniega

COOLGARDIE WA IMPRESSIONS PART 1 OF 2 PARTS
 
10:25
DON PUGH CARAVAN TRIP 2008 WESTERN AUSTRALIA Coolgardie is a small town in the Australian state of Western Australia, 558 kilometres (347 mi) east of the state capital, Perth. It has a population of approximately 800 people. Although Coolgardie is known to most Western Australians as a tourist town and a ghost town population wise, it was once the third largest town in Western Australia (after Perth and Fremantle). At this time, mining of alluvial gold was a major industry: supplying the flagging economy with a new, radiant hope. Many miners suffered under the harsh conditions: for a few it was worth it, as they left with pockets heavier. Most men, however, left poorer than they had started off, with hopes dashed. The town was founded in 1892, when gold was discovered in the area. Australia had seen several major gold rushes over the previous three decades, mostly centred on the east coast, but these had mostly been exhausted by the 1890s. With the discovery of a new goldfield, an entire new gold rush began, with thousands flocking to the area. By 1898, it was the third largest town in the colony, with a population of 15,000, and another 10,000 in the surrounding region. At its peak, 700 mining companies based in Coolgardie were registered with the London Stock Exchange. The town also supported a wide variety of businesses and services, including a railway[2], a swimming pool (first public baths in the state), many hotels and several newspapers. The value of Coolgardie to the colony in the late 1890s was so significant that it was used as leverage to force Western Australia to join the Australian federation - Britain and the eastern colonies threatened to create a new state to be named Auralia around Coolgardie and other regional goldfields, such as Kalgoorlie, if the government in Perth did not agree to hold a referendum on federation. The Western Australian government reluctantly complied and a referendum was held just in time to become a founding state in the new federation. When federation did occur in 1901, Coolgardie was the centre of a federal electorate, the Division of Coolgardie. Soon after in November 1901, Alf Morgans from the state electorate of Coolgardie briefly became Premier of Western Australia. Albert Thomas also of Coolgardie was elected the first Member of Dundas, an electoral division south of Coolgardie. Goldfields Pipeline along Great Eastern HighwayHowever, the gold began to decrease in the early 1900s, and by World War I, the town was in serious decline. The federal electorate was abolished in 1913 due to the diminished population as many of its residents left for other towns where the gold was still plentiful, and it soon ceased to be a municipality. The situation remained unchanged throughout the century, as its population slipped to around 200 and it became a virtual ghost town. An example of this decline is in March 1896 Coolgardie's main street was lit by an electric light, but by April 1924 the same street was lit by four Hurricane Lamps. Despite this, many of the buildings from its peak were retained, which in recent years has helped start a small revival in the town's fortunes. The development of a tourist industry has once again created some employment in the town, resulting in a small increase in population, and it appears to be no longer in danger of dying completely. The Coolgardie safe is a low-tech refrigeration unit named after the small mining town, invented in the 1890s. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia caravan trip 2008

Visting the Day Dream mine just outside of Broken Hill in NSW. This is certainly an underground mine tour with a difference. Undergound mining in the late 1800's was a very tough way to make a living. The income was twice as much as a general farm hand but the average life expectancy was half as long at 35. This silver mine operated until the 1980's.

Creepiest Abandoned Houses
 
10:52
From isolated cabins in the woods… to haunted castles and mansions ... Here are 16 of the creepiest abandoned houses! #16 Cabins In The Woods You’ll find these spartan cabins in the ghost town of Garnet, Montana. In the 1860s it was a small mining town, and workers called these small cabins their home. For a time, plenty of gold was yielded from the motherlode. But when the gold ran out in 1918, so did the populace. Nowadays, the well-preserved ghost town receives around 16,000 visitors a year. Maybe you’d like to visit the creepy looking cabins for yourself! #15 Home Alone At some point in time, this shack served as someone’s home. And maybe it still does, who knows? But we’re betting this decayed domicile has effectively been abandoned for a while now. Just at how the branches and vines seem to be pulling it to the ground. There’s a lot about this picture that gives off bad vibes. Can you come up with a backstory for this strange looking place? If so, let us know in the comments. #14 Vampire’s Retreat This is a manor house located in Romania … or the remains of one, anyway. As you might know, Romania is known for a forested area called Transylvania, which borders on the Carpathian (kar-PAY-thee-un) Mountains. And Transylvania is known for Vlad the Impaler, also known as Vlad Dracula, and said to be the inspiration for the legendary vampire. With those windows covered up it would be the perfect hideaway for an undead creature of the night. What do you think? #13 The Psycho House This one probably needs no introduction. It’s the place that Norman Bates and his mom once called home. Immortalized in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film “Psycho”, its formal name is actually ‘The ‘Bates Mansion’. After being abandoned by filmmakers, the house became a popular attraction at the Universal Studios backlot in Hollywood. And although it’s been altered and moved several times, the house still remains an icon of creepiness, so it’s worthy of our list. If the Bates Motel was full, would you be willing to sleep in the house?
