Finding gold nuggets in South Australia
 
03:47
First ever trip to Australia and the proof that it's who you know, not what you know. Trevor Clark took me to an area where he knew there were nuggets in the ground. On the way to that area I got a really faint target, and once we knew it was a possible nugget, Trevor Ferraresso (there were two Trevor's) started filming me. This was the first of six nuggets found in two days. Not the most to be found, but I'm still happy to find the in SA, one of the 'harder to find gold states'

The Secret World Of Gold | Gold Mining - Geographic History

The Secret World Of Gold | Gold Mining - Geographic History. It is impossible to know the exact date that humans first began to mine gold, but some of the oldest known gold artifacts were found in the Varna Necropolis in Bulgaria. The graves of the necropolis were built between 4700 and 4200 BC, indicating that gold mining could be at least 7000 years old. A group of German and Georgian archaeologists claims the Sakdrisi site in southern Georgia, dating to the 3rd or 4th millennium BC, may be the world's oldest known gold mine.

In 1869 Two Miners Set out in Search of Gold – and They Made a Record-Breaking Discovery
 
05:17
Today, Victoria is the second most populated state in Australia. In the mid-19th century, it was more like the American Wild West. This is because the country had a major gold rush. The idea of finding riches beyond their wildest dreams is what brought people from all over the world to the area. The gold rush in Australia began in February 1851, when specks of gold were discovered in New South Wales. After that, more and more gold was discovered. During the peak of the gold rush, two tons of gold per week were sent to Melbourne's Treasury Building. This helped Britain pay off its international debt, which allowed the country to expand its growing empire. The population significantly increased during this time. Since the first gold discovery, over a half million people moved to Australia. Some towns had a growth in the population of 1,000 people. Unfortunately, this didn't last. With much of the gold having been already found, there was no money to be made. In 1915, the export of gold from Australia was prohibited, and the gold standard was abolished. This left many towns abandoned. In the 1850s, when the gold rush was just beginning, word of the rush spread to Britain. Former tin miner, John Deason, and Richard Oates heard about the money to be made in Australia. At the time, the two men were living on Britain's southwest coast. They decided to give up in mining, and they sailed to Australia to try their luck as gold prospectors. They moved to the township of Moliagul in Victoria. Due to the gold rush, Moliagul was doing great. There were 11 pubs in the town during the gold rush. In 1855, over 16,000 people were living in the town. John and Richard were two of these residents. John and Richard tried to make a living being prospectors. It wasn't an easy job. If the men were unable to find any gold, they wouldn't make money. It wasn't long before the two men ran out of money for food. They knew that they needed just one big score to set themselves up for life. Unfortunately, in 1869, the men were in debt. They were so poor that they couldn't even get credit to buy flour. The two men refused to give up, and in February, the men tried their luck in another area. In 1869 Two Miners Set Out In Search Of Gold – And They Made A Record-Breaking Discovery. Around 9 am on February 5, 1869; John was digging in a new location. He was trying to get his pick around tree roots when the pick broke. He shouted, "Damn it! I wish it were a nugget." John took a closer look at what had broken his pick. When he looked down, he realized that he struck gold. He and Richard were looking at the huge nugget that they uncovered. John thought that the huge nugget was worth at least $6,000, and Richard thought that is was worth $2,600. Not wanting to wait, the two men hauled the massive nugget back to John's shack. The nugget was embedded in a layer of quartz. They had to get the gold out of the quartz, so they placed it on top of a fire. When it cooled down, they broke 70-pounds of quartz from the nugget. When they broke off the quartz that contained a lot of loose gold. The nugget was 24-inches long and 12-inches wide. They knew that they needed to weigh the giant nugget before selling it, so the two men stashed it in a calico bag. The next morning, the two men took their nugget, which they named, Welcome Stranger, to the London Chartered Bank in Donnelly so that it could be weighed. They were planning to get the weight and sell the nugget. The nugget was too large to fit on the bank's scale. They had to use sledgehammers and chisels to break the nugget down so that it could be weighed. When the gold was finally weighed, it totaled 210-pounds. It was the largest nugget ever to be found to this day. When news of John and Richard's find got out, people lined up at the bank to see the huge nugget. The men received over $12,000 and became instant celebrities. The two men were generous and gave a pound to each of their friends. This find was so huge that the town commissioned a stone memorial for the Welcome Stranger in 1897. If the nugget were found today, it is believed that it would be worth $8.5 million. Richard had no family to share his wealth with, but John had a wife, and he bought 80-acres of land to settle down an cultivate. Sadly, John lost all of his money in failed investments. By the time he died, he was broke. Just because he died a poor man, the town never forgot the John and Richard's fantastic find.

There’s a vast stretch of the Amazon the Peruvians call Madre de Dios - Mother of God - but tragically these days, it looks more like something concocted by the devil. Once-pristine jungle has been stripped by illegal miners, leaving a desolate lunar landscape. It’s so lucrative, even drug lords are in on the act, switching from cocaine to gold - which makes this part of the world a very dangerous place indeed. Denham Hitchcock travels deep into the Amazon with Miss Peru to investigate a crime which could have a devastating effect on all of us. Here’s Denham Hitchcock.

Golden Gamble. Gold mining in the Philippines, a dirty business
 
25:41
More films about the Philippines: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/philippines/ - The use of child labour in the Philippine’s Paracale, or ‘Goldtown’, is widespread - Extracting gold involves diving into mud-filled shafts and using toxic mercury - Poverty and lack of alternative jobs force people into this highly dangerous work - Many die young due to work accidents or breathing problems, others develop chronic illness The Philippines’ town of Paracale was dubbed “Goldtown” for its rich deposits of the precious metal. Despite government attempts to regulate mining, illegal pits are still commonplace. They lack even the most basic health and safety and workers are exposed to toxic mercury fumes. Dirty water causes skin diseases and they live with the constant threat of being buried alive. Workers continue to take these risks day after day, because there is no other source of income. Many of the gold miners are children whose families can’t afford to send them to school. Some gold is panned on the surface, but a lot has to be extracted from underground. To do that, prospectors dive into narrow, mud-filled shafts, uses snorkelling masks and long tubes too breathe. If the mine collapses, they have no chance of escape. They have a saying here, ‘while you’re down the mine, you have one foot in the grave’. Several miners have already died that way, others from respiratory diseases caused by inhaling mercury fumes. The toxic metal is used in gold extraction with no safety precautions, so it poisons the air, the ground and the water, causing long-term harm to the whole community. Another danger to the inhabitants of Paracale comes from disused mines, abandoned and left open, waiting for unsuspecting victims to fall in. The business takes its toll on workers, their families and the community. They have been known to demonstrate, demanding safer working conditions, better pay and other job opportunities, but change is slow. Meanwhile, extreme poverty among people who produce one of the world’s most precious metals leaves them no option but to continue with this pitiless occupation.

World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
 
04:51
South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

TWENTIETH CENTURY KALGOORLIE W AUSTRALIA HISTORY GOLD MINING TRANSPORT BUILDINGS
 
23:12
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 producer: Don Pugh

But some of the richest gold-mining potential in Africa is luring hundreds of thousands of Ivorians off the land and into the mines.

Desperate men and children scour underwater mine-shafts in this terrifying report. Breathing through nothing more than a thin pipe connected to an air compressor, going 30 foot deep underwater for hours in search of gold is all in a day’s work for 16-year-old Gerald. "I'm afraid, if the earth collapses, I will get buried underneath" says the teenager. Surrounded by rock walls in the pitch black darkness of the water, the men chip away at walls for 3 hours. They find no gold. For many like Gerald school is a distant memory, and illegally diving for gold the only alternative to starvation. Hundreds of deaths by electrocution, drowning and even the possibility of Mercury poisoning have had little impact on compressor mining activities, which continue un-policed and unregulated. There appears little hope of change on the horizon. "If I could only give job opportunities - I will take them away from compressor mining. It is just that I have no alternative at this point" says Ricarte Padilla, Mayor of Jose Panganiban - Philippines' so-called "Gold Coast". As it is, the children and family men unearthing 60-80kg of gold per month see the lions share of wealth disappear into the Chinese black market.

#Abandoned : Ghost town- Dalmorton NSW Australia
 
28:43
Come explore abandoned Dalmorton Ghost town with me. I explored this town in the end of summer here in Australia. Dalmorton was first settled by people in search of gold but the rush didn't last too long as it was decided by geologists that there was not enough gold in the area to turn the place into a town. Not sure if that makes sense?? As with most gold rush towns it has mostly disappeared and alot of the building were dismantled and relocated to other parts of the region. I love visiting the area and never get tired of heading down there when I have time to spend a few days camping. Dalmorton is in northern nsw of Australia. I hope you enjoy exploring with me and I hope I wasn't talking too fast for everyone? I was trying to get as much in as I could without dragging the video out too long and as a result was talking rather fast as well LOL. If you want to know more about Dalmorton there is a lot of information if you do a Google search. Saves me having to write a book here that people get bored reading anyway.

Abandoned- 1865 Farm House/Gold rush settlement/Crosthwaite family history
 
18:56
Hey guys this is an amazing old farm house built in 1865 and has seen 4 generations of the one family live in it. It is situated close to Ballarat and is the only building still standing from the small gold rush settlement town of "Italian Gully". The natural decay and unaltered format of this home is like being able to step back in time to a place in Victorian and Australian history that you normally would only read and see in a rare book. Included in the video are some old photos and information about the area and Crosthwaite family who descended from Thomas Crosthwaite, a very prominent man of that area. HISTORY: Four generations of the Crosthwaite family, including Elsie Crosthwaite, 94, gathered at the family farm on Monday to celebrate its 150th anniversary. (Photo at end of video) THOMAS Crosthwaite arrived by boat in Melbourne back in 1852. He wondered through Victoria in search for gold and found himself at a gold mining settlement in Italian Gully, south of Smythesdale. It was Mr Crosthwaite who founded the Crosthwaite Farm in 1865, a farm that is today uninhabitable, but still stands. 150 years later and his descendants still visit the much loved family farm. Four generations of the Crosthwaite family, including 94-year-old Elsie who grew up on the farm, gathered at the property on Monday to celebrate its 150th anniversary. Married into the family, Bruce Betts said it was a chance for the family to relive six generations of stories from the property including its days as a strawberry farm. Hey guys I found another photo of the Crosthwaite family unfortunately after I uploaded the video! lol here it is :-) http://daniellethompson.org/Crosthwaite.htm

Kalgoorlie Gold Mining WA 1930's -- 1950's
 
06:46
OLD FOOTAGE PHOTOSKalgoorlie, alternatively known as Kalgoorlie-Boulder, is a city in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, and is located 595 kilometres (370 mi) east-northeast of Perth, the state capital. The city was founded in 1893 during the Yilgarn-Goldfields gold rush, and is located close to the so-called "Golden Mile". It has a population of 28,246,[1] making it the largest urban centre in the Goldfields-Esperance region and the fifth-largest in Western Australia. The mining of gold, along with other metals such as nickel, has been a major industry in Kalgoorlie ever since, and today employs about one-quarter of Kalgoorlie's workforce and generates a significant proportion of its income. 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 and began to grow into nearby Boulder. Kalgoorlie after the 1934 race riotsThe narrow gauge Government railway line reached Kalgoorlie in 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 2,000 kilometres (1,243 mi) 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 completed the Sydney-Perth railway, making it possible for rail travel from Perth to Sydney—and the Indian Pacific rail service commenced soon after. During the 1890s, the Goldfields area boomed as a whole, with an area population exceeding 200,000, mainly prospectors. The area gained a notorious reputation for being a wild west with bandits and prostitutes. This rapid increase in population led to a proposed new state of Auralia but with the sudden diaspora after the Gold Rush led to plans falling through. 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. One of the infamous brothels also serves as a museum and is a major national attraction. Kalgoorlie and the surrounding district was serviced by an extensive collection of suburban railways and tramways, providing for both passenger and freight traffic.[3] wikkipediia caravan ttrip 2008 don pugh

VISITING HISTORIC GOLD MINING GHOST CITY OF COOLGARDIE WA WESTERN AUSTRALIA
 
27:54
history kalgoorlie 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, 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 was elected Premier of Western Australia. 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. 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 Hemlo Gold Story
 
56:24
A CBC Documentary Prospectors John Larch, Don McKinnon and Richard Hughes discovered gold in the Hemlo camp in the early 1980s, starting a staking rush not seen in Canada since the Klondike gold rush of the late 19th century. Two companies, Golden Sceptre and Goliath Resources, secured rights to a large land package in the area, and were subsequently acquired by Noranda. Noranda permitted and built the Golden Giant mine in less than two years. With its first pour in April, 1985, the Golden Giant was the first mine in the camp to ship. Peak production occurred in the early 1990s, approaching 500,000 oz per year. During its 21-year life, the mine produced over 6 million ounces of gold. (from Wikipedia)

200,000 Year Old Ancient Technology That Indicates The History Books Are Wrong
 
48:36
It looks like history textbooks may soon be rewritten. Most of the circular, glyph-pattern stone structures were in the past assumed to be tribal ruins from past African communities. But the fused-quartz, stone constructs mark a grid of ancient roads, possible agricultural terraces and most importantly: thousands of gold mines--to indicate some ancient industiral mining community with possible advanced sound technology for levitating heavy stones and gold. The “stone settlements” cover most of southern Africa, west of the port of Maputo, in a remote region 150 miles inland, a sprawl of archaeological remnants of an ancient city cover a possible 1500 square miles. Rogue scientists and archaeologists checking the area estimate that this is part of an even bigger grid of 10,000 square miles that may have been fluorishing 160,000 to 200,000 BCE. Local farmers had assumed all of these stone glyph patterns were made by indigenous African peoples from the past and never bothered to check their archaeological significance.

So C'mon....Let's Go !!!!! #askjeffwilliams #dredgingforgold 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
