MONTANA MOSAIC: WHEN COPPER WAS KING, directed by Gita Saedi In the late 1800's the "Copper Kings" ruled the state of Montana. The copper mining industry had an enormous impact on the state's political, economic, and cultural makeup. "When Copper Was KIng" explores the profound impact of the copper mining industry on the state of Montana,and follows the rise of the labor unions in Butte as a reaction to the power of the copper companies. This is one segment of the "Montana Mosaic" series, produced by the Montana Historical Society.

Our Lady of the Rockies Berkeley Pit Copper Mining Site Butte Montana Virgin Mary Statue

Our Lady of the Rockies Berkeley Pit huge Copper Mining Site Our Lady of the Rockies in Butte Montana is the second Talles Statue in the USA Can You guess the First..;-) http://www.1ownercarguy.com Butte is a Western Mine Town and The Richest hill In the World and Butte has huge Virgin Mary Statue on top of the mountains overlooking the city Our Lady of the Rockies. The Statue is Lit up att night you can also do a tour and see it up close in the Spring and Summer. This Statue is 90 Feet tall the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil is only 99 feet so pretty close considering just how Small Butte Montana is. The only Statue Bigger than Our Lady of the Rockies is The Statue of Liberty.. The Berkley Pit was the Richest Mountain in the world at the time. They produced enough Copper to pave a Four-Lane Highway four inches thick from Butte to Salt Lake City which is about 350 to 400 miles. That is very impressive. Pause and read the paper it is pretty cool how much rock they pulled out of the pit. They are closed in the winter time or I would of showed you the actual pit itself. As I drove around I tried to zoom in on the giant Virgin Mary statue that they have up on top of the hill but I couldn't get that good of a shot of it. It is not the size of the one in Brazil but it is huge and quite impressive. From Wikipedia Our Lady of the Rockies is a 90-foot (27 m) statue, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, that sits atop the Continental Divide overlooking Butte, Montana. It is the second tallest statue in the United States after The Statue of Liberty.[1] The statue was built by volunteers using donated materials to honor women everywhere, especially mothers. The base is 8,510 feet above sea level and 3,500 feet above the town. The statue is lit and visible at night. The statue was first imagined by local resident Bob O'Bill. In 1979, his wife was seriously ill with cancer. He promised the Blessed Virgin Mary that he would make a 5 foot statue of her in his yard if his wife recovered.[2] When she recovered he began the project with his fellow workers who gradually changed the initial vision to a 90-foot-high mountain top statue. Many people in Butte donated materials and time to make the statue a reality. The design for the statue was engineered by Laurien Eugene Riehl. He was a retired engineer for the Anaconda Company who donated his engineering skills to the project. The statue had to withstand the powerful windsheers that buffet the ridge tops. Joe Roberts donated his lot and buildings for the construction of the statue. The statue was airlifted from Roberts Rocky Mountain Equipment to its present site on the Continental Divide. Work on the project began December 29, 1979. Volunteers spent many summer evenings blasting a road to the top of the Rockies, sometimes making only 10 feet of progress a day. The base of the statue was poured in September 1985 with 400 tons of concrete. The concrete was provided by Pioneer Here is the Soda Steam link Free Shipping and $10 off http://www.stockgambles.com/stock-gambles-blog.html Make sure and check Out My channel I have Lots of 1 & 2 Owner Cars Trucks and SUV's on there and i sell them Cheap Also If You Subscribe You wont Miss out..;-) I Have a few Channels You can Access them Via My Main Channel page or also you can See the Links I post Below I will Also Post links to My websites and Facebook so you don't Miss any of the action Sign Up Everywhere!!..;-) Cheers Nathan Wratislaw AKA 1 Owner Car Guy 406-544-6919 Make sure and visit Some of My Websites Below I do All Sorts of Unique Things..;-) http://www.1ownercarguy.com http://www.cerealmarshmallows.com http://www.Beaglespocket.com http://www.ClickWebs.com http://www.Hardener.com http://www.missoulaautoauction.com http://www.vita-depot.com http://www.Nathanwratislaw.com Also Make Sure And ADD Me or Subscribe on Facebook & Youtube http://www.facebook.com/cerealmarshmallows And For Youtube i have 2 channels you may want to add http://www.youtube.com/user/cerealmarshmallows http://www.youtube.com/user/1ownercarguy http://www.youtube.com/user/stockgambles http://www.youtube.com/user/montanamuscle Send Me Hate Mail or Goodies & Stuff to show on Youtube 1 Owner Car Guy (Nathan Wratislaw) PO Box 2505 Lakeside, Ca 92040 No Ticking items please..;-) "Our Lady of the Rockies" "Virgin Mary" "Statue Of Liberty" Huge Biggest Satue In USA "Berkeley Pit" "Christ the Redeemer" Brazil Idol Pit Mining Copper Mine "Copper Block" "Mining Site" "Butte Montana" Western "Mining Town" Religion Religious Figure Church Mountain "Nathan Wratislaw" "1 Owner Car Guy" "Richest Hill On Earth" Ore Rock "Waste Rock" Ton Tons See Find Closed Tourism "Tourist Attraction" Site Construct Build Train Caboose "Mine Car"

Compressed Air Mine Hoist Running Again After 70 Years
 
01:31
A 400 horsepower Nordberg compressed air cable hoist, utilized at the underground mines of Butte, Montana, to haul men and equipment into the tunnels. Probably built around the late 1890's or early 1900's as a test platform before the other steam powered hoists used on the hill were converted to a similar pneumatic system. This hoist was stored at a local mine in a shed for well over 80 years before being rescued and restored by volunteers from the World Museum of Mining.

1955 Copperhill Tennessee environmental damage
 
00:37
A brief glimpse of severe environmental damage to the area surrounding Copperhill, Tennessee in 1955. Heavy sulfuric acid emissions from a copper smelter killed all vegatation for miles around the smelter. Breathing in the vicinity of the small mining town became very difficult when the winds were calm. The area has now mostly recovered from the damage and vegetation has returned to these foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

This is one of the stops we made on our road trip. This video is of Butte Montana. I really like this old Mining town. It was a boom town back in the day and they had a little bit of everything here. All of the buildings are very old as you can see. With mining came a lot of people and one of the main attractions became whore houses or brothels. Prostitutes were a big deal back then and there was quite a few of them here. The were in business all the way into the 80's. Everything is shut down now and the town is not near what is what back in the day. This is just a video showing you some of the scenic attratctions that Butte has to offer.

Berkeley Pit, Butte, Montana Time Lapse 1984-2012 (from Google/Time Magazine)
 
00:32
The Berkeley Pit is a former open pit copper mine in Butte, Montana, USA. Over the active lifespan of the Berkeley (1955-1982), approximately 320 million tons of ore and over 700 million tons of waste rock were mined from the Pit. Put another way, the Berkeley Pit produced enough copper to pave a four-lane highway four inches thick from Butte, Montana to Salt Lake City and 30 miles beyond. Since closure (1982), the Pit has been filling with toxic water, and managed as a federal Superfund environmental cleanup site. Visit www.pitwatch.org for more info.

This 22-minute video explores the profound impact of the copper mining industry on Montana. This video can be viewed as two shorter segments if desired. Segment 1 (10:55) focuses specifically on the Copper King's 1894 Capital Fight between Helena and Anaconda. Segment 2 (11:13) focuses on the tensions between laborers and management in Butte's copper mines in the early 20th century. These tensions paralleled the growth of unions in Butte. This video presents an overarching theme of industrialization during the period from 1892 until World War I-era Montana. http://mhs.mt.gov/Education/MontanaMosaic.aspx

4K City Walks: Butte, Montana Virtual Treadmill Walking Tour No. 2
 
46:20
Had a job in Butte, Montana and I was able to get a couple walks in. This 2nd one is from Montana Tech to uptown Butte, where most of the old buildings are located. Butte has fallen on hard times the last couple of decades but was once known as the Richest Hill on Earth for its copper mines and the fortunes it made. It still has it's 19th Century charm even if some of the paint has chipped. Butte residents are a tough lot though and they still have many events and activities throughout the year. Give yourself a treat if you are near the junction of I-90 and i-15. It's definitely worth a stop. From Wikipedia: Butte is the county seat of Silver Bow County, Montana, United States. In 1977, the city and county governments consolidated to form the sole entity of Butte-Silver Bow. The city covers 718 square miles (1,860 km2), and, according to the 2010 census, has a population of 33,503, making it Montana's fifth largest city. It is served by Bert Mooney Airport with airport code BTM. Established in 1864 as a mining camp in the northern Rocky Mountains on the Continental Divide, Butte experienced rapid development in the late-nineteenth century, and was Montana's first major industrial city. In its heyday between the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, it was one of the largest copper boomtowns in the American West. Employment opportunities in the mines attracted surges of Asian and European immigrants, particularly the Irish; as of 2017, Butte has the largest population of Irish Americans per capita of any city in the United States. Over the course of its history, Butte's mining and smelting operations generated an excess of $48 billion worth of ore, but also resulted in numerous environmental implications for the city: The upper Clark Fork River, with headwaters at Butte, is the largest Superfund site in the United States, and the city is also home to the Berkeley Pit. In the late-twentieth century, cleanup efforts from the EPA were instated, and the Butte Citizens Technical Environmental Committee was established in 1984. In the 21st century, efforts at interpreting and preserving Butte's heritage are addressing both the town's historical significance and the continuing importance of mining to its economy and culture. The city's Uptown Historic District, on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States, containing nearly 6,000 contributing properties. The city is also home to Montana Tech, a public engineering and technical university. Prior to Butte's formal establishment in 1864, the area consisted of a mining camp that had developed in the early 1860s. The city is located in the Silver Bow Creek Valley (or Summit Valley), a natural bowl sitting high in the Rockies straddling the Continental Divide,positioned on the southwestern side of a large mass of granite known as the Boulder Batholith, which dates to the Cretaceous era. In 1864, William L. Farlin founded the Asteroid Mine (subsequently known as the Travona); Farlin's founding of the Asteroid Mine attracted a significant number of prospectors seeking gold and silver. The mines attracted workers from Cornwall Ireland & Wales, Lebanon, Canada, Finland, Austria, Italy, China, Montenegro, Mexico, and more. In the ethnic neighborhoods, young men formed gangs to protect their territory and socialize into adult life, including the Irish of Dublin Gulch, the Eastern Europeans of the McQueen Addition, and the Italians of Meaderville. The influx of miners gave Butte a reputation as a wide-open town where any vice was obtainable. The city's saloon and red-light district, called the "Line" or "The Copper Block", was centered on Mercury Street, where the elegant bordellos included the famous Dumas Brothel. Behind the brothel was the equally famous Venus Alley, where women plied their trade in small cubicles called "cribs." The red-light district brought miners and other men from all over the region and remained open until 1982 after the closure of the Dumas Brothel; the city's red-light was one of the last such urban districts in the United States. Commercial breweries first opened in Butte in the 1870s, and were a large staple of the city's early economy; they were usually run by German immigrants, including Leopold Schmidt, Henry Mueller, and Henry Muntzer. The breweries were always staffed by union workers. Most ethnic groups in Butte, from Germans and Irish to Italians and various Eastern Europeans, including children, enjoyed the locally brewed lagers, bocks, and other types of beer Virtual treadmill walk video - #virtualtreadmill #virtualwalk #citywalks These videos are great for treadmill walking scenery.

Toxic Superfund Put Near Critical Level In Butte, Montana
 
01:03
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — It was an unusual and unfortunate confluence of events: A larger-than-normal number of geese was making a later-than-normal migration over Montana when a snowstorm blew in at the wrong time and sent them soaring to the wrong place. The throngs of white birds splashed down in a 50 billion-gallon toxic stew that is part of the nation's largest Superfund site. At least 3,000 died. Residents of this mining city say the snow goose deaths this fall were a wake-up call that raises broader questions about the Berkeley Pit and whether federal regulators will be ready when the former copper mine that collects heavily acidic, metal-laden water reaches capacity. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2017-01-23-US--Toxic%20Pit/id-5982c8a2a30b4634b525794028b0f3ff http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Exploring Homestake Mine & Weepah Mine, Arizona

#MineExploration of the Homestake Mine & Weepah Mine, which are located just west of US-93, about halfway been Wickenburg & Wikieup, on the banks of the Santa Maria River in Arizona's Yavapai County. The Homestake Mine & Weepah Mine are in the Black Mountains of the Arrastra Mountains Wilderness. I was surprised the Weepah Mine adit was still open, but it looked more exploratory, than meant to remove significant gold & silver. The Homestake Mine was also open, with several stopes & inclined shafts. Given the length of the drift level, I was surprised there were no ore cart tracks.

Give yourself a treat if you are near the junction of I-90 and i-15. It's definitely worth a stop. From Wikipedia: Butte is the county seat of Silver Bow County, Montana, United States. In 1977, the city and county governments consolidated to form the sole entity of Butte-Silver Bow. The city covers 718 square miles (1,860 km2), and, according to the 2010 census, has a population of 33,503, making it Montana's fifth largest city. It is served by Bert Mooney Airport with airport code BTM. Established in 1864 as a mining camp in the northern Rocky Mountains on the Continental Divide, Butte experienced rapid development in the late-nineteenth century, and was Montana's first major industrial city. In its heyday between the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, it was one of the largest copper boomtowns in the American West. Employment opportunities in the mines attracted surges of Asian and European immigrants, particularly the Irish; as of 2017, Butte has the largest population of Irish Americans per capita of any city in the United States. Over the course of its history, Butte's mining and smelting operations generated an excess of $48 billion worth of ore, but also resulted in numerous environmental implications for the city: The upper Clark Fork River, with headwaters at Butte, is the largest Superfund site in the United States, and the city is also home to the Berkeley Pit. In the late-twentieth century, cleanup efforts from the EPA were instated, and the Butte Citizens Technical Environmental Committee was established in 1984. In the 21st century, efforts at interpreting and preserving Butte's heritage are addressing both the town's historical significance and the continuing importance of mining to its economy and culture. The city's Uptown Historic District, on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States, containing nearly 6,000 contributing properties. The city is also home to Montana Tech, a public engineering and technical university. Prior to Butte's formal establishment in 1864, the area consisted of a mining camp that had developed in the early 1860s. The city is located in the Silver Bow Creek Valley (or Summit Valley), a natural bowl sitting high in the Rockies straddling the Continental Divide,positioned on the southwestern side of a large mass of granite known as the Boulder Batholith, which dates to the Cretaceous era. In 1864, William L. Farlin founded the Asteroid Mine (subsequently known as the Travona); Farlin's founding of the Asteroid Mine attracted a significant number of prospectors seeking gold and silver. The mines attracted workers from Cornwall Ireland & Wales, Lebanon, Canada, Finland, Austria, Italy, China, Montenegro, Mexico, and more. In the ethnic neighborhoods, young men formed gangs to protect their territory and socialize into adult life, including the Irish of Dublin Gulch, the Eastern Europeans of the McQueen Addition, and the Italians of Meaderville. The influx of miners gave Butte a reputation as a wide-open town where any vice was obtainable. The city's saloon and red-light district, called the "Line" or "The Copper Block", was centered on Mercury Street, where the elegant bordellos included the famous Dumas Brothel. Behind the brothel was the equally famous Venus Alley, where women plied their trade in small cubicles called "cribs." The red-light district brought miners and other men from all over the region and remained open until 1982 after the closure of the Dumas Brothel; the city's red-light was one of the last such urban districts in the United States. Commercial breweries first opened in Butte in the 1870s, and were a large staple of the city's early economy; they were usually run by German immigrants, including Leopold Schmidt, Henry Mueller, and Henry Muntzer. The breweries were always staffed by union workers. Most ethnic groups in Butte, from Germans and Irish to Italians and various Eastern Europeans, including children, enjoyed the locally brewed lagers, bocks, and other types of beer Virtual treadmill walk video - #virtualtreadmill #virtualwalk #citywalks These videos are great for treadmill walking scenery.

Diavik Diamond Mine This diamond mine, located in Canada’s remote Northwest Territories is actually a pretty recent hole! Work only began on this thing in 2003, and it is one of the world’s preeminent sources of gem diamonds. Since mining operations began, it has produced over 100 million carats of diamonds!! 6. Berkeley Pit Located in Butte, Montana, this copper mine is now filled with heavily acidic water. Opened in 1955, this mine was used to get copper out of the Earth. Ironically it closed on Earth day in 1982. In the 80’s Berkeley Pit was 1700 feet deep and 900 feet wide. Approximately 320 million tons of ore and over 700 million tons of waste rock were mined from the pit. 5. Mir Mine This is a diamond mine, and one of the largest excavations in history. This mine in Russia is the 2nd largest man made hole in the world. Located in outside of Mirny, a small town in Eastern Siberia, this place is 1,722 feet (525 meters) deep, and 3,900 feet (1.25 kilometers) across. 4. IceCube Neutrino Observatory There are many different ways to make holes in the Earth as you know, or will soon learn. But for the University of Wisconsin, they wanted to do a study of the Earth from a different perspective. They decided to go to Antarctica and drill a massive hole into the very ice caps of the Earth to see what's down there. Thus, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory was made. 3. Kimberley Diamond Mine Also known as the Big Hole, the Kimberly diamond mine in South Africa, is home to the world’s largest diamond mine! It is so large it is visible by space and has produced some of the world’s largest diamonds. 2. Bingham County Mine Also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine in Utah, this mine definitely takes the cake. This copper mine has been in use for over a century, and it's still open to this day. It's the biggest copper mine in the world and provides about 25% of the country’s copper needs. 1. Kola Superdeep Borehole Have you ever wondered what's at the center of the Earth? Fact is, no one really knows which is why the Kola Superdeep Borehole is so important. While the Bingham County Mine may be the largest manmade hole in the world, the Kola Superdeep Borehole is the deepest hole in the world!

Corner of Berkeley Pit sloughing away, some residents concerned
 
01:20
Some Butte residents are raising concerns over the recent sloughing that's been reported in the Berkeley Pit. A significant sloughing event happened last month in the southeast corner of the pit. Sara Sparks, the EPA's remedial project manager for the site, says the first sloughing event was in 1998, followed by three more in between 2012 and 2013.

Viburnum No. 28 Mine Service Shaft Exploration- Headframe Found!
 
06:25
In a first for us, we stumbled across an intact headframe in the Viburnum Trend. This shaft and its associated headframe and hoist house served as a service and escape shaft for the No. 28 mine, and likely had a secondary role as a ventilation shaft. The small escape 'cage' is still on-site, as is the complete hoist motor and all of its associated electrical hardware. The shaft appears to have a hasty cap, the cables have been cut, and the fire extinguisher has been removed from the hoist house. Aside from this, the complex looks exactly as it did when in service. As far as we know, with the exception of the production shaft at Federal's No. 3 mill, now a museum, this is one of two surviving abandoned lead mine headframes in Missouri, the other standing on state land over St. Joe's old No. 25 shaft west of Farmington. The No. 28 mine officially closed in 2004. I suspect this to mean that ore production from the shaft ceased in 2004, given our experience last night. We drove to the gates of the No. 28 surface plant- powerhouse, dry house, headframe, shops, and other structures- and found it gated, locked, full of in-service equipment of types known to be used underground by Doe Run, and with all structures fully lit. While we could not tell if the mine's shaft is still in service- if it were, it would probably be moving heavy equipment to the other interconnected mines- the surface plant is most certainly in use. Our first clue was the fact that, while exploring the service shaft, the mine's main electrical substation was lit up and apparently in service. "Officially closed" doesn't mean too much in the Ozarks, you'll find!
