In 1874, gold was discovered at the Illionis mine by Alfred Welsh and John Kirkpatrick and on May 14, 1875 the Lodi district was organized. Not long thereafter, a ten-ton smelter was built by William Raymond, of the Raymond and Ely Mining Company in Pioche. A 1,000-foot shaft was also sunk at the Illinois mine. Three more mines, the Los Angeles, Sand Mound, and Downey, were opened by the Argent Mining Company in 1877, and by 1878, Lodi had a general store, blacksmith shop, saloon, boarding house, and a population of over 100. In 1879, the Argent company hit hard financial troubles, and all of its personal property was auctioned. The company managed to hold onto its mines until 1881, when they too were auctioned. In 1880, after producing $400,000 in ore, the Illinois mine closed. By the end of 1881, 25 claims existed in the Lodi district, but only six men remained to work them. One of these was Alfred Welsh, who in 1887 purchased the old Argent company's holdings (although he would still concentrate on his Illionis mine, which had been the only real producer). Welsh's life was ended in November 1891 when he was shot by his brother over an alleged debt of $16,000. The Illionis became idle, and although it was sold in 1893 to Timothy Phelps, remained idle until the next century. Beginning in 1905, new discoveries prompted new growth in the Lodi district. Three seperate camps were formed. At the Illinois mine, Marble was established and a post office opened there on March 2, 1906. The next camp, Bob, was created just to the east, and the final camp, Lodivale, was established at Lodi Tanks. During the first part of the revival, Lodivale grew rapidly as a result of plentiful water, and residents had opened respectable number of saloons and stores. A post office was moved to town from Phonolite on July 23, 1909 (it only lasted until August 25, 1910). Meanwhile, Bob developed a hotel, restaurants, saloons, and a red-light district. By 1909, miners had worked the Illinois to the 1,060-foot level with over 4,000 feet of drift work and ore was being hauled to the railroad in Luning by the Lodi Mines Company. A handsome new 100-ton smelter was erected in June of that year, but it was abandoned after little more than a month. The cost of hauling ore bankrupted the Lodi Mines Company, and in May 1911 all its properties were sold. The Adaven Mining and Smelting Company took over at that point, and continued to develop the mine until 1914 when the mine hit water and began to flood. In 1915, Adaven sold out to the White Pine Mining Company, which was not successful either, and finally Chauncey Burt (who had owned the Lodi Mines Company) ended up with all his property back. The camps struggled until December 15, 1917, when the Marble post office finally closed. With the exception of an ill-fated experimental concentrator in 1919, the Lodi district remained fairly quiet until 1921 when the Illinois Nevada Mines Corporation purchased the Illinois mine. Two men working for the company, Hughes and Hatterly, made a gold discovery just south of the mine and production began fairly quickly. A 40-horsepower hoist was installed, and miners worked the higher levels of the mine. The company built a six mile water pipeline from Marble Falls Canyon, supplying the mine with a surplus of water. The Illinois Nevada Mines Corporation continued to operate the mine until 1928. The last business in the district, the Archibald boarding house at Lodi Tanks, closed in 1929. Except for a brief stint in 1940, the district has remained idle since then. Chauncey Burt retained his faith in the Illinois mine, however, and he remained in Lodi until his death in 1951. His ashes were scattered at his mine, which as of the 1980s still remained in the family. The total production of the Lodi district was $1.3 million.

The ruins of the Knickerbocker Mill, Nye County, Nevada.
 
14:04
Knickerbocker was neither a town nor a mining camp. It was a small milling camp built in the summer of 1865. The mill, consisting of twenty stamps and six roasting furnaces, operated until 1875. While the mill was in operation, about twenty-five people lived nearby. When the mill closed, the canyon quickly emptied. In 1877, the mill reopened to work ore from Grantsville. When Grantsville built its own mill, the Knickerbocker mill closed again. In 1887, the mill reopened to work ore from the Berlin mine. When the mine ceased to operate, the mill closed down again in 1889. In 1896, the mill was purchased by W. S. Gage to treat ore from his many mines. But he died in 1897 and the mill closed again, this time for the final time. In 1898, the mill was purchased and its contents dismantled and moved to service ore from the reopened Berlin mine in a new thirty stamp mill.

Grantsville, Nye County, Nevada
 
26:52
P.A. Havens, known already for his discoveries at Ione, found gold here in 1863. A town and mining district, named after Ulysses S. Grant, was established shortly thereafter. Havens's claims played out quickly, and Grantsville became a ghost for the next decade. In September 1877, the Alexander Company came to Grantsville and the camp was reborn. A twenty-stamp mill was built and started operation in November 1878; it was enlarged to 40 stamps three years later. By the end of 1878, Grantsville had several businesses and a population of nearly 1,000. A newspaper, the Grantsville Sun, was published by D.L. Sayre from October 19, 1878 until June 1879. It was succeeded by Andrew Maute and Samuel Donald's Grantsville Bonanza from December 11, 1880 until 1884. Grantsville's first post office opened in 1879 with George Healy as postmaster. By the 1880s, three stage lines (to Eureka, Wadsworth, and Austin) were established and Grantsville was home to over forty businesses and a brick school erected by the Odd Fellows. Fourteen major mines were in operation at this time, the chief producer being the Alexander. The town started to fade after November 1880 when the Alexander Company was forced to stop operations after producing $1.25 million. Manuel San Pedro resigned as superintendent in 1881 to focus on his interests in Gold Park. By 1884, only 400 people remained in Grantsville, and the population dropped to 50 by 1886. John Phillips ran the old Alexander mill on tailings from the Alexander and Brooklyn mines. In June 1888, the Alexander property was purchased by the Hornsilver Mining Company. The company operated the claims until 1897 when it folded after its superintendent's death. Throughout the end of the 1800s and up until the end of the 1920s, Grantsville experienced several small revivals. The two most notable were from 1916-18, and 1921-23 when the Webster Mines Corporation bought and renamed the Alexander mine and mill. The mill was remodeled in 1927, but operation ceased in 1928. In 1939, a fifty-ton flotation mill was built at the Silver Palace mines and lasted until 1940. Grantsville's final activity was from 1945 until 1947, when the Alexander and Brooklyn Mines Company reworked mines and produced $50,000 worth of lead for the war effort.

Darwin (Broadcast Version) | KQED Truly CA
 
54:11
The people of Darwin, CA (population 35) coexist without government, a church, jobs or children. Together with their fellow outsiders and eccentrics, they enjoy the freedom of isolation in California's Death Valley. http://ww2.kqed.org/trulyca/darwin/ At the end of a rutted road in Death Valley, a once rowdy and violent mining town now hosts a community where government and commerce have evaporated. Welcome to Darwin, population 35. Despite its dusty and remote exterior, Darwin is teeming with life. There are those who stayed after the mines’ closure, like Monty, a retired miner who has found the artist within. Others have joined the community more recently, like Ryal and her partner Penny, two twenty-somethings who found refuge in the desert while Ryal undergoes the transition from female to male. Susan the postmaster has the only job in Darwin, but she isn’t there for the paycheck. Many in the town have struggled with drugs, crime and tragedy, but in Darwin, the townspeople take pride in the fact that they are judged not by their past sins, but by who they are today. The living may not be easy, but in Darwin, people live life on their own terms. A film by Nick Brandestini. Full-length version is available on iTunes.

Duluth Mine Exploration - Part 2 - Lower Workings
 
12:26
LINK to Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=oIxDGfKAVYk While escaping an early Fall snowstorm in remote Nevada, we managed to find the upper and lower adits of the Duluth Mine. It's in danger of being destroyed by nearby pit mining operations, so we wanted to document as much as possible, while still being mildly entertaining. The Duluth is an old gold mine, founded sometime in the early 1900's, and often referred to as the Bruner, or one of several other names. It doesn't have quite the storied history of other mines in the area, but it was interesting to visit, even if it we had to make it hasty. Once again, I have to say - the BFG AT KO2 tires on the Blue Ox did a fine job, and all 3 trucks on this trip were running that tire in various sizes. https://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/tire/bf-goodrich/all-terrain-t-a-ko2 To answer a couple of questions, we use the Honeywell BW Clip gas meters to make sure the mine atmosphere is safe. http://www.honeywellanalytics.com/en/products/BW-Clip They can be had brand new for short money, and they can be had for even less if they have already been activated. For example, you can find them on eBay for $30-$45 with 20-22 months left on them. Pretty slick!

Virginia City, Nevada Investigation Part 3
 
01:23
Back to those miners! Special Note: Lisa drove us to Chollar Mine, check out our pictures and afterwards she drove us to the Fourth Ward School to investigate. Back to those miners. The miners would snowshoe to work and then descend into the high temperatures. This contributed to a low life expectancy. Adolph Sutro built the Sutro Tunnel in support of the mining operations. Virginia City experienced the Great Fire of 1875 and 4 other major fires. Lots of damage, lots of lives lost. Virginia City has a Boot Hill cemetery. Virginia City is considered as the birthplace of Mark Twain, because in February 1863, the writer Samuel Clemens, then a reporter for the local Territorial Enterprise newspaper, first coined his famous pen name of Mark Twain. Virginia City is the place that Mark Twain was mugged by a group of masked friends, (referred to as the Mark Twain Bandidos) that relieved him of his gold watch that was worth $300.00. His friends did this as a practical joke and merely wanted Mark Twain to have something to write about. Mark Twain did indeed write something about this unfortunate mugging. Mark Twain was not happy about this mugging in Virginia City. Special Note: The local newspaper for Virginia City is the Comstock Chronicle.

Belmont Nevada - Part 4 "A Courthouse One Can Treasure"
 
14:02
Belmont held the Nye County seat up until 1905 but the problem was that it had nowhere to house county functions. Due to the jail being housed in the basement of the town bank and prisoners escaping a courthouse would be built in 1875 at the cost of almost 6 thousand dollars. Its Italianate Architecture along with its cupola can be seen from anywhere in the town and today it is one of the most photographed courthouses in the American west. It was made right on site with bricks fired in a kiln to be precise over 25 thousands of them. While the bottom floor houses many county offices the second floor had a courtroom and judges chambers while the back area had a jail. That way the Sheriff and his Deputy had a place they could work out of since Belmont had plenty of lawlessness back in the day. Charlie Manson and his Family once squatted here back in 1969 but one of the locals with a shot gun supposedly chased him out today his name can be seen etched on a door frame within the courthouse. The courthouse is rumored to be very haunted but the only way to gain access today is to do repairs on it in exchange for access something were trying to look into. Ill take you on a brief tour around the courthouse and give you a tour of the jail cells which were removed at one time because they were sent to Gabbs then in the 1990's they made there way back to Belmont. When the courthouse had opened it had opened just in time for Independence Day and a ball was held here. While some men were jailed for their crimes here others were lynched not to far away from this courthouse. www.paranormalghostsociety.org/BelmontNevada.htm

With this video I did a pretty poor job at showing you the volume of trash in some of the prime camping locations around Likes Lake, Fallon Nevada 12 August 2013. The mission was to fill up my truck bed with a load of trash... It took an hour and a half and didn't cover much ground. It's sad that people do this to such nice places. I ask you to please find a place similar and use your resources to erase the effects of the people that do not respect the "Leave No Trace" code. A big shout out to my youtube pal Pharroh for inspiring me to get this mission started. We might not be able to stop all this non-sense, brother, but we sure can slow it down with our efforts.
