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. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration
S4E3 Washington State Gold Mining - Prospecting a Stream in the Blewett Pass Area with Pete
 
22:01
This was a sampling trip to locate another area to work on a stream in the Blewett Pass area. Not much gold, but prospecting a very low water creek has its challenges. I had some success, but have more questions about this area. Dig more and dig deeper!

#7 Ghost Camp Found,  1900-1949  in BC's Boundary Country.
 
11:00
http://BcGHOSTtowns.com This is not "The City of Paris Ghost Town" It is in fact the #7 mine site and is one of nicest little abandoned mine camps found in it's normal state of decay... Here is the MINEFILE info for the #7 The No. 7 mine is on the claim of the same name (Lot 623), on a ridge crest at the elevation of 1370 metres, 3.3 kilometres east of the confluence of McCarren and Gidon creeks, 7.5 kilometres southeast of Greenwood. Access to the property is 2.4 kilometres travelling southerly and up hill by winding dirt road from the McCarren Creek road. The Lexington (082ESE041) and City of Paris (082ESE042) lie 2.5 kilometres to the southeast. The intermittent operations of the No. 7 mine from 1901 to 1945 produced a total of 13,748 tonnes of ore yielding 92.4 kilograms of gold, 3110 kilograms of silver, 97 tonnes of lead, and 6.2 tonnes of zinc. The potential of No. 7 was recognized early in the Greenwood camp and the claim was Crown granted in 1895 to J. Schofield. By 1897, a 40-metre deep inclined shaft was developed on the claim to service 60 metres of underground drifting. At the approximate time of final closing of the mine 50 years later, in 1945, the mine workings comprised a 100-metre inclined shaft, adit levels at 12 and 90 metres, and intermediate levels at 30 and 55 metres. Old mine maps show that the underground work on these four levels totals about 1580 metres. The 90-metre adit level is open from portal to face, a distance of about 580 metres, but the other levels are partly caved southeast of the inclined shaft. Other workings include an adit drift 40 metres northwest of the 12-metre No. 1 adit, a large number of surface pits, and a deep trench along the vein from which some underhand stoping was done. The mine is developed on a quartz vein on a major southeasterly trending boundary fault between Upper Paleozoic Knob Hill Group on the northeast and Attwood Group on the southwest. Contained in part within the fault zone, and hosting this vein, are a schistose quartz feldspar intrusion and serpentinite. A variety of young Tertiary dikes have invaded, and are superimposed on, the vein structure. The quartz vein at the mine site has been traced for a strike length of more than 300 metres. The vein ranges from 10 centimetres to 1.5 metres wide and dips 40 to 65 degrees northeast, having dike rocks or chloritic schists of the Knob Hill Group on the hanging wall and highly sheared talc-carbonate rocks of the serpentinite body on the footwall. Mineralization consists of pyrite, sphalerite and some galena dispersed in blue-grey quartz along the central portion of the vein. The most productive part of the vein was southeast of the inclined shaft above the 55-metre level. A large number of northeasterly striking faults displace the vein. Displacements along these faults range from a few feet to almost 60 metres. The maximum displacement was measured on the fault exposed in the southeast end of the 90-metre level and on the surface 60 metres southeast of the long open cut. The vein has not been located beyond this fault. Movement along these faults has been largely post mineral. Evidence of some pre-mineral movement is furnished by unbroken vein quartz seams and lenses, up to 20 centimetres by 3 metres, in the fault zone exposed at the southeast end of the 90-metre level. Subsidiary faults of small displacement are part of this same fault zone, and offset both vein and the post mineral quartz trachyte dike. Thus this single fault zone has been the locus of both pre- and post-mineral movements. The No. 7 fault zone is an ancient structure believed to be a possible continuation of the Chesaw thrust in Washington state. The serpentinite is part of a disrupted Paleozoic ophiolite complex. Because of the ductile nature of these rocks, the belt has become a tectonically active zone and the locus of much shearing, thrusting, igneous intrusion and vein mineralization. The common Mg-Fe carbonate (listwanite) alteration and serpentinization are believed to be related to major thrusting of the ophiolitic rocks during the Jurassic. In the early Tertiary these thrusts were re-activated by a tectonic compression directed subparallel to the developing northerly elongated graben structures. Igneous activity at the same time is believed to be related to numerous vein deposits. No ore reserve estimate is available for this property. Cool stuff! I would like to take some pictures of the old cabins. Thanks for sharing! Thanks to a local resident for help and directions Check back next summer for a video on what is left of the City of Paris BC. Thanks again to David, Snuffy & Jim British Columbia Historian John Mitchell

State Police Interrupt a Gold Mining Operation in Oregon!
 
15:39
Our mining claim neighbors called the Cops! People living on the other side of the river where our mining claim is and not liking our mining, called the cops. It appears our neighbors just did not want their liberal utopia disturbed so they call the cops to harass us. The police were very cool as I knew one of them from checking our permits on another river couple months earlier and an Oregon DEQ meeting he showed up at. The rude lady yells to at from other side of river "you need a permit to do that"...we had them of course. She also told cops we were disrespecful and rude to her...which was totally false. She made up her own narrative about what was happening to justify her being annoyed. Liberal tactic # 3, change the narrative or just plain lie! This is the short version of the video, filmed on the Applegate River in Oregon while we were LEGALLY GOLD MINING! In the video, it is a continuous video, shot on my GoPro camera that I was wearing on my head. The video shows me mining and moving around with no editing to show what actually goes on while mining. Then my buddy is helping me move rocks while I'm using a sub-surface dredge...then the cops show up , and I tell him is where the action starts. UPDATE Jan 1st, 2015: In response to some of the comments saying we are uneducated, rednecks and other stuff...the guys in the video are as follows. One is a millionaire CPA, another a self employed business owner, two others are also self employed and owns a body shop and the other an internet marketer and freelance videographer, and lastly one is the son of the CPA guy and currently in college. Oregon Mining Law: Next time this happens, I will ask the State Police to cite the offending people who disrupt our mining operation based on this Oregon Mining Law: "ORS 517.133 Interfering with a mining operation. (1) As used in this section, "lawful mining operation" means any small scale mining operation that is in full compliance with state and federal laws. (2) A person commits the crime of interfering with a mining operation if the person intentionally: (a) Interferes with a lawful mining operation; or (b) Stops, or causes to be stopped, a lawful mining operation. (3) Interfering with a mining operation is a Class C misdemeanor. [1999 c.354 §6]" Here is the GoPro camera I was using: http://amzn.to/19yYus6

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!

Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 1
 
25:49
Consistent with its status as one of the biggest abandoned mines in Nevada, it requires a hike of thousands of feet and a significant elevation decline just to get down to where the underground workings really begin at this massive mine… As can be seen near the start of this video, there are twin portals and passages running parallel down to the underground workings. Our guess was that this was because one passage was for traffic entering the mine and the other for traffic departing the mine. Deep underneath the mountain, the passages converge on a main hub from which drifts branch out in all directions. At the heart of this hub is a breakroom and a large workshop. A large drift takes off to the right from the workshop, while to the left a drift meanders away and another passage descends deeper into the bowels of the mountain. In this first video, we explore the hub of the mine as well as the workings taking off to the left from the hub. Following the descending passage, we were eventually blocked by flooding as the mine workings continue deep beneath the water level inside of the mine. One can only imagine how many miles of workings are under those dark waters. Fortunately, the other main drift taking off to the left was on a slight upward incline and so the water drained down and (mostly) out. With the miles of underground workings at this abandoned mine stretching well into the double digits, one might expect there to be quite a lot of information available on this site. However, that is not the case. There is surprisingly little information to be found online and the various government agencies involved with this site have done a pretty thorough job of scrubbing references to it from their public databases. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 2
 
18:26
After exploring what was possible to explore (or that we were willing to explore) off to the left side of the main hub of this gigantic mine, we made our way back over to explore the right side. This meant heading down the large passage taking off from the underground workshop… The number of drifts and inclines fanning out in all directions was staggering and we had to stay focused in order to maintain some order in our exploring. Fortunately, we were able to get into areas of open stoping (with natural support) on this side of the mine and to see some of the minerals the miners were seeking. Additionally, on several occasions, we were able to look up to (or down to) different levels in this mine, suggesting that the underground workings were even greater than we had already imagined. Interestingly, this side of the abandoned mine was in far better shape than the other side and we encountered hardly any water. I should mention that with this mine I have edited many, many hours of exploring down to a manageable clip that shows the noteworthy features, but spares my dear viewers the tedious viewing of us walking, walking, walking and walking some more (and then walking some more) down miles of featureless drifts. The primary mineral extracted at this mine was zinc, but copper, lead, silver and even molybdenum, among other minerals, were recovered as well. Headframe Hunters, who was kind enough to do some research on this mine for us, had the following to share on the geology of the mine: “It was a mid-grade zinc mine - the primary zinc ore type mined is sphalerite (zinc sulfide, commonly called jack), which explains the acid mine drainage and hydrogen sulfide you encountered. The deposit is probably an igneous-hosted hydrothermal vein-type deposit; a limestone-hosted MVT like we have in Missouri would have buffered out all the acid.” Ultimately, this mine closed due to a period of low zinc prices rather than because the mine was played out. There are actually a significant quantity of valuable minerals still underground at this abandoned mine. * Thank you to Headframe Hunters and Mines of the West for the information they were able to dredge up on this abandoned mine * ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

ABANDONED | GHOST TOWNS Of The American West Part 1
 
13:23
From Washington State’s best kept secret, to icy deserted camps, these are Ghost Towns of The American West | Part 1 HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 8.Barkerville | B.C. Historians say that the town of Barkerville, located in the Cariboo Mountains of British Columbia, triggered a multi billion dollar industry... Of course it was gold, its always gold with these 1800s ghost towns isn’t it ? Seriously though, if it wasn’t for Barkerville and similar towns propping up during the Cariboo Gold Rush, British Columbia might look a LOT different nowadays. The town was founded in 1862 by William “Billy” Barker, an English prospector, and boy did it grow quick. As soon as word spread about the massive amounts of gold in the nearby mountains, thousands of prospectors looking to better their life made their way into town. At one point 5000 people lived here, the hysteria eventually yielded a total of 2,350lb (1,065kg) of gold. 7. Bennett | B.C 6. Moyie | B.C Moyie is pronounced “mo-yee” but really fast so that it sounds like you’re saying “moyyyy”. Don’t say the “mo” and the “yee” separate, it’s all connected. Okay, now that we have our etymology lesson done, we can talk about how Moyie came to be known as a ghost town even though it still has residents. Moyie is located in southeastern British Columbia, about 30 miles north the U.S. border at Montana. Before Moyie was even founded, a massive area of an important source of silver, called “Galena”, was discovered near the town’s main source of water, Moyie Lake. That was in 1893. Fast forward to 1897, and the town was founded and developed by a man named Glencairn Campbell (no relation to the better-known Glen Campbell: the famous 1970’s “Southern Nights” singer). Moyie was founded because of its close proximity to the Canadian Pacific Railway and tote roads that were built for supplies. (A tote road is a road built specifically for stagecoaches to bring supplies to rural towns). Back then, a town located close to a railroad was a sure-fire sign that it was going to be a prosperous city. Moyie did not become the glorious, thriving city everyone had hoped for, but it did prove to be a quaint place to live! By 1901, Moyie’s pride and glory was its brothels and saloons located right on the lake. There were some wholesome elements, too, of course: hotels, St. Peter’s church, a train station, and a school. Overall, the town was home to mostly males who were workers in the mine. The mine in Moyie was called “St. Eugene’s” mine because Nicolas Coccola, who was probably mistaken for the inventor of Coca-cola several times, was the head of the St. Eugene Mission. 1909 was the mine’s best year, with 450 men working actively for silver deposits. Unfortunately, by 1920, the census of both St. Eugene’s mine and the entire town of Moyie drastically dropped to just 120. Honestly, they probably just completely drained the mine of silver and left to find more. 5. Yale | B.C. 4. Index | Washington Index is the smallest town in western Washington, boasting a population of 160. It is located in northwest Washington, about one hour north of Seattle. Despite its current humble state, the town began with high hopes. All the way back in 1893, when millions of prospectors were searching for gold and silver, two young hopefuls had a different vision for this small community in western Washington. And their vision was in the shape of logs. Yes! Logs! Tree trunks! In addition to mining and recreation, they saw the potential for a thriving logging economy. Amos and Persis Gunn, a husband and wife duo, who were probably on a romantic vacation, exited their honeymoon phase with a plot of land. Most people just get used to living with each other first, but you know, to each his own. Anyways, the couple initially settled in Snohomish County for Amos’ work as a miner, but they staked a claim on the plot of land because it was basically the Holy Trinity of resources. It was right on the Skykomish River, in the middle of the woods (hello, trees), and was near already-established trails leading to operating gold and silver mines. It truly was a melting pot of potential success. No, but really, it was an actual pot: a valley situated between a 6,000-foot mountain and a 1,000-foot granite cliff. Persis took one look at the mountain and said: “Wow, that looks like an index finger!” And without missing a beat, Amos proved his undying love to his wife by naming it Index Mountain. Nice work, Amos. 3. Maryhill | Washington 2. Monte Cristo | Washington 1. Port Gamble | Washington

Gold Run Mining Camp California.  Trip to the mining area
 
05:03
Decided to see what the hydraulic mining area around Gold Run California looked like and if there was any area to do some metal detecting for nuggets. The area I wanted to go into was gated and locked so went to another area and found Canyon Creek.

Finding Something Unexpected in an Abandoned Copper Mine
 
14:48
What an unexpected discovery! Paul and I never imagined finding what we found deep in this abandoned copper mine in Arizona. The Warren-Bisbee Mine's obscure entrance was basically a rabbit hole and didn't look too promising. However, once we gained entry by sliding in on our backs, the tunnels opened up and were surprisingly extensive. One tunnel led us deep into the mine to an inner area where we found -- something. Something impressive. Something rare that I've only seen a few times in abandoned mines over the last seven years or so. And it's all here in this video. Enjoy! Don't forget: New videos are released at midnight (Pacific Time) on the 1st, 10th, and 20th of each month. View and use the information in my videos at your own risk. All abandoned mines (especially the ones in my videos) are very dangerous and should not be entered under any circumstances. No potentially life-threatening, dangerous, or legal decisions and assumptions should be made based on information in my videos. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

The 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?

Interesting Discoveries At The Crown Point Gold Mine…
 
21:56
As you may have gathered from the early parts of this video, one has to work a little to get to the end of the canyon where these historic mines are located. Aside from the great scenery, the upside in that, of course, is that these mines remain relatively undisturbed. Thus, it was our good fortune to be left with all of the oddities, uniqueness and curiosities we saw at this site. I wish that we were always so fortunate! The earliest records I could find on these historic mines dates back to claim paperwork from 1857. However, according to my research, the powerhouse and other buildings all seem to date back to the turn of the last century (pre-WWI). The powerhouse (that was turned into a bunkhouse) supplied electricity to the entire area. The remains of the solid bridge, the excellent rock terracing, the historic mining equipment and historical electrical equipment as well as the quality and extent of the buildings at the end of the canyon indicate that this was quite the prosperous hive of activity in the past. That is definitely the first time I have ever seen antique Pelton wheels at a mine… By the standards of the time, the miners here must have had a very high standard of living. Consider, the standard of living was higher then than now! They could have comfortably driven vehicles back there in the past and they, obviously, had abundant electricity. No electricity and no vehicles now… I suppose one still has the beautiful creek cascading into the canyon though. The old mine and mining camp across the river seemed like an idyllic spot and it certainly made us curious. Maybe one day we’ll get an invitation and can see more of it and learn more than the small amount of information I was able to uncover… I’m also very curious as to what we missed inside of the mine. The air flow in there was tremendous, which means there was a passage to the outside world somewhere. The area past the “gate ladders” was blocked and so the passage to the outside could only have been in the stope. However, I saw no sign of daylight while I was there. So, that would suggest that the stope ran farther back than I perceived at the time. It is disappointing to be that close to a goal, but to not be able to accomplish it. The second location we visited – the one with the black water in the flooded shaft – is on the same watershed as the first location, but is down a different canyon. I could locate no records on that mine and do not even know the name of it. The size of the waste rock pile and the presence of the stamp mill is evidence that it was a sizeable operation, but it must have been an early one given the lack of information about it. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

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!

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.

4100 Feet Underground in the Massive, Abandoned Admiral Aaron Ward Mine
 
16:50
While coming back down from some mines way up north, Paul and I stopped at the abandoned Admiral Aaron Ward Mine and walked down its 4100-foot inclined entry tunnel into the subterranean workings. Once we reached the bottom, we found wide tunnels branching off in all directions in this former silver, copper, and zinc mine. During our five-hour exploration, we found one stope that was unbelievably huge and utterly mind-blowing! We also found deep, flooded areas and bottomless shafts. Various colorful mineral growths and crystal growths appear throughout the mine's tunnels, too. The miners' workshop was still full of spare parts, tools, and other artifacts. Another interesting find was the miners' refuge chamber. A freshwater spring deep in the mine provided us with some of the cleanest and best-tasting water I've ever drank! After five hours of exploring, we decided to call it quits and began the long, arduous hike back up the 4100-foot, inclined entry tunnel to the surface. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

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.

Krug Gold Mine - Nevada - Gold Rush Expeditions - 2015

This mining claim, based out of Pershing Nevada, is a fantastic example of a small time operation with big time results. Miners followed the gold infused quartz vein all the way up the mountain making shallow cuts and high grading the ore as they went along. The biggest feature of this claim resides on the upper point of the mountain where a 220' drift has been cut and mucked. You wouldn't know it however because the previous miners hid it behind a "Danger Explosives" sign and a shelf that was placed in front of the entrance in hopes of deterring visitors. The site also boasts a fair amount of structures including an old blacksmith shop and accompanying miners house. There is still plenty of potential left in this old mine and is a great opportunity for today's small time miner.
