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

It's one of the oldest cities in Arizona. Bisbee a century ago was a booming mining town where gold, silver, and copper flowed from the mines, and the cash poured into posh hotels and shady saloons.

Swansea is a Ghost Town in La Paz County in the U.S. state of Arizona. It was settled around 1909 in what was then the Arizona Territory. It served as a mining town as well as a location for processing and smelting the copper ore taken from the nearby mines.

The Big Eye Mine and its cabin remain a very popular hiking and jeeping destination in the far reaches of the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge and its Castle Dome Mountains in Yuma County, Arizona. This particular video of my documentation and exploration of Arizona's Big Eye Mine was originally filmed and posted in August of 2012. I am re-posting the same video again after making some minor edits for continuity and running time. This video highlights the well-maintained cabin, the many various artifacts in it, and provides some history behind the mine. I also explore and document the main Big Eye Mine tunnel as well as an upper level higher on the mountain.

1.23.2013. I decided to walk out to some mountains today and found several old abandoned gold mines from the past. I didn't see any official claim markers or indications that the area was other than BLM (Bureau of Land Management). An old post at one gold mine had written on it, 'Gold Lake Discovery 1/1/13', which I'm not certain whether someone wrote that just a few weeks ago on New Year's Day, or that it indicates an initial discovery in 1913. This is high definition video footage for Youtube.

Exploring the Ghost Town of Swansea in Arizona http://www.totally-trailer.com Email [email protected] Facebook: www.facebook.com/totallytrailer ********************************** On a long dirt road, just 30 miles outside of Parker, Arizona (in literally the middle of nowhere) sits an old copper mining town. Archaeological and historical sites litter this once bustling boomtown and the Bureau of Land Management has done an excellent job restoring and protecting this massive and extinct townsite. It’s no surprise that we were once again lured to an abandoned mining area full of mine shafts, artifacts and the residual smell of history and danger. Swansea Townsite was a copper mining town that was settled around 1909. It’s one of the largest ghost towns we have visited so far. At the town’s peak (of about 750 residents), it boasted everything from a car dealership, a moving picture theater, lumber yard and an electric light company (in addition to the normal saloons, barbershops, cemeteries and restaurants). What a cutting edge town, to have their very own electric light company! As you walk the dusty “streets” of Swansea, it’s difficult to imagine a car dealership out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by open mine shafts. What a journey this copper went on after being mined from the earth. It took a train ride along the Colorado River and ended up on a boat down the Gulf Coast, around Cape Horn to Swansea, Wales (hence the namesake)! That’s over 4,900 miles……. The townsite sits surrounded by large mountain ranges in every direction. It’s even a steep, curvy and hairy drive into the townsite (so we don’t recommend going when it’s been raining, or with a trailer or large RV). Once nestled into the town, you can’t help but feel safe and thousands of miles away from anyone and anything. At the entrance to the town, BLM has a kiosk with flyers, maps, historical photos and information as well as pit toilets. We could have spent days wandering and exploring the historical gems hidden within Swansea, and particularly appreciated the massive mine shafts, finding portions of the old railroad and the ramshackled brick buildings from long ago. The old copper mining town still has evidence of the massive copper smelter and dust chamber, which was a rather large and impressive brick building. Due to recent toppling walls and bricks, the building has been fenced off, but you can’t miss the undeniable presence this building had in the town. The mine shafts are all covered for safety purposes. These heavy duty safety measures allow you to walk over and around the shafts safely, while eerily peering down these deep black holes. There is an interpretive trail, hiking trails, picnic spots and ATV trails in the area. The interpretive trail takes you through the worker’s cottages, general office, company store, company residences, railroad depot, manager’s house, copper smelter and dust chamber, the hospital and school site along with rusted old cars and magnificent views. Just like all the ghost towns we have visited, Swansea fell victim to the Great Depression and the last milling was reported in 1944. Today, Swansea gives us glimpse back to our past as well as a reminder at how wild the west really was. Although there are a handful of small campsites in Swansea, Totally Trailer does not recommend any large RV's or trailers due to the hairy roads getting into the townsite. The campgrounds at Swansea are perfect for small vans or tent camping only. It's a fun day trip and beautiful drive in from Parker, AZ. We recommend parking your RV or camper in nearby Parker.

A great day at the Gold King mine with Don Robertson, and surprise meeting with Terry Furlong, lead guitarist for the Grassroots. Don’t miss the Gold King Mine & Ghost Town. The location of the historic Gold King Mine was originally the site of Haynes, Arizona, which in 1890, was a small suburb of the larger town of Jerome, one mile north. When the Haynes Copper Company dug a 1200-foot-deep shaft in search of copper, they were disappointed at the absence of copper, but miners hit gold instead. The site is now a musuem where visitors can see continuous demonstrations of antique mining equipment and the operation of a turn-of-the-century sawmill daily. Other highlights include walks in an authentic mine shaft, animals to pet and feed, a circa 1901 blacksmith shop, and the world’s largest gas engines. The Museum is open daily from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Facilities include rest rooms and a large parking area. Most of what we know about the ancient people that inhabited Arizona relies on inference and circumstantial evidence. Almost everything about them is shrouded in mystery.

*TURN ON CLOSED CAPTIONING (CC)* July 19, 2012. I was out this way to check on the opening of the UFO home musuem (aka Golf Ball House). The gates were locked, so I don't know what's going on with that situation. So, anyway, I decided to stop over in Yucca AZ to look around. It's a very small town, just a couple hundred in population. A few structures were interesting to look over and photograph. A Yucca resident talked to me about the town, how it started out as a mine community, mining for copper, silver, gold. Later a gunnery, military training for aircraft pilots, shooting machine guns and such from planes. In modern times it was the area where the Ford and Chrysler proving grounds operated, with I think Chryler still in operation, testing their vehicles. It was getting late in the day, so I didn't cover everything. Saw the itsy bitsy Yucca Post Office, the Yucca Elementary School (with the letter S about falling off the sign), the Yucca Baptist Church, some old Yucca Mission building that looked abandoned long ago, and some old antiquated houses from long ago. This place has very much a feel of an old ghost town with just sprinkles of indications of life. The local bar, the Honolulu Club had two customers at the bar. I went in to get an energy drink, didn't have Monster, so I settled for Red Bull. Anyway, a big hello to all the small independent film and video makers, journalists, youtubers, CrackHeadSally, BillyBobTruckDriver, George4title (G4T), Alex Jones (aka Bonehead Paranoid Fearmonger), Peter Schiff (stuttering and repetitively talking about the Fed printing too much money), Marc Faber (who laughs at Americans), Jim Rogers (Chinese American Citizen Billionaire), as well to all the tons of friends everywhere around the world in which I am way too busy to talk to. Remember everyone, Buy Silver and Gold. Why? Because millions of adult children living in the basement of their Mom's house believe it is the best thing to do. I may be out in the area again to do some metal detecting with the Fisher Gold Bug 2 (II) metal detector, maybe find some gold nuggets, relics, etc No, this high definition (HD) video is not about Yucca Valley California (CA).

This well-made silent film, apparently made by Ken Mershon, shows Jerome, Arizona and the surrounding area as it appeared in the late 1960s or early 1970s when it was still considered a ghost town. Jerome is a town in the Black Hills of Yavapai County in the U.S. state of Arizona. Founded in the late 19th century on Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley, it is more than 5,000 feet (1,500 m) above sea level. It is about 100 miles (160 km) north of Phoenix along State Route 89A between Sedona and Prescott. Supported in its heyday by rich copper mines, it was home to more than 10,000 people in the 1920s. As of the 2010 census, its population was 444. The town owes its existence mainly to two ore bodies that formed about 1.75 billion years ago along a ring fault in the caldera of an undersea volcano. Tectonic plate movements, plate collisions, uplift, deposition, erosion, and other geologic processes eventually exposed the tip of one of the ore bodies and pushed the other close to the surface, both near Jerome. In the late 19th century, the United Verde Mine, developed by William A. Clark, extracted ore bearing copper, gold, silver, and other metals from the larger of the two. The United Verde Extension (UVX) Mine, owned by James Douglas, Jr., depended on the other huge deposit. In total, the copper deposits discovered in the vicinity of Jerome were among the richest ever found. Jerome made news in 1917, when strikes involving the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) led to the expulsion at gunpoint of about 60 IWW members, who were loaded on a cattle car and shipped west. Production at the mines, always subject to fluctuations, boomed during World War I, fell thereafter, rose again, then fell again during and after the Great Depression. As the ore deposits ran out, the mines closed, and the population dwindled to fewer than 100 by the mid-1950s. Efforts to save the town from oblivion succeeded when residents turned to tourism and retail sales. Jerome became a National Historic Landmark in 1967. By the early 21st century, Jerome had art galleries, coffee houses, restaurants, a state park, and a local museum devoted to mining history.

The Verde Combination claim is set in the high hills adjacent to the historic mining town of Jerome, Arizona. Much of Jerome and the surrounding mines is and has been private for many, many years. The area is known for its deposits of copper, silver, gold and lead. The Verde Combination was so named for the Verde Combination company who originally located the mines.

Pan for gold then take a ride on Arizona’s only narrow gauge train. You’ll also get to witness an old west gun fight performed by the famous Goldfield Gunfighters! Spend a fun filled day, rich in wild west history! Back in the 1890′s Goldfield boasted 3 saloons, a boarding house, general store, blacksmith shop, brewery, meat market and a school house. Just when it looked like the town would outgrow Mesa, the vein faulted, the grade of ore dropped and the town died a slow painful death. After several unsuccessful attempts to reopen the mines, the town did come to life again from 1910 on and off until 1926. After more than 115 years, travelers from all over the world still visit this gold mining town located on the historic Apache Trail and enjoy the excitement and grandeur of Arizona’s wild west!

Bisbee was founded in 1880 as a gold, silver and copper mining town. Bisbee got its name in honor of Judge DeWitt Bisbee one of the investors of the Copper Queen Mine. In the early 1900's mining in the Mule Mountains was very successful. In 1910 it's population had grown to 9,019. This population growth helped for surrounding towns such as Warren, Lowell and San Jose which all had been founded on their own less successful mines. During Wold War 1 open pit mining began in 1917 to meet the copper demands. Bisbee Blue was a high quality turquoise and was a secondary product of the copper mining. Bisbee area mines have produced high quality mineral specimens that can be found in museums worldwide. Cuprite, aragonite, wulfenite, malachite, azurite, and galena are some of the minerals that have come from this area.
