Abandoned Scratch Awl Silver Mine near Philipsburg, Montana MT
 
14:03
The abandoned Scratch Awl Silver Mine near Philipsburg, Montana was first developed in the 1870’s. It was misspelled Scratch-All after the original survey but both names refer to this site on Granite Mountain just east of Philipsburg. From the Montana Department of Environmental Quality web site: "The Scratch Awl was one of the first silver lodes discovered in the district, and recorded production in 1875 when it was worked in a small way in association with the Salmon lode. By 1907 the workings were inaccessible. The mine was reopened in 1917, when it supplied a moderate amount of manganese for the war effort. The mine recorded production nearly every year between 1919 and 1927. Between 1928 and 1939 the mine was reported to have produced 50,000 tons of manganese ore and 60,000 tons of silver-zinc ore. By 1939 the mine was the most active in the district. The mine is developed through a 500 foot shaft with three levels with 8,000 feet of workings. On the 500 foot level the mine is connected to the True Fissure lode to the north and to the Cliff lode on the west." The work was brutal but the pay was steady. The mine was operated by the Silver Prince Co. in the 1920’s and by Contact Mining Co. through the 1960’s when it closed. Most of the shop buildings have collapsed due to winter snowfall, but the main cable building and the change house (dry house) building still stands with their roofs intact. After shift showers were a welcomed relief since the underground work was hot, dusty and dirty. This site is on private property so please respect the owners’ rights and take only pictures, leave only footprints. Speaking of footprints, please watch your step! A lot of rusty nails are just waiting for your footprint! Please do not climb the structures since they are well beyond safe condition and could collapse. Also respect the fencing around the main shaft since it was placed there for your safety. Many thanks to my friend Rick from the Granite County Museum and Cultural Center. Rick provided transportation, access and insight to this historical site. Please visit the museum in Philipsburg on your next journey through the valley.

Incredible Nevada Silver Mine - Part 1
 
25:37
Buckle up for an extended series on one of my favorite abandoned mines… I’ve shown a number of smaller mines recently to set the stage for the explore of this huge abandoned mine – an abandoned mine that is filled with a number of incredible features that I have never seen anywhere else. I can sincerely say without hesitation that this is the most unique abandoned mine that I have ever explored. And having visited hundreds of mines by now, that is not a statement that I make lightly! Right at the start, the wind roaring out of the portal should give you a hint of the scale of this mine and what is ahead. At one point in the video, you’ll hear me ask how long we have been hiking in for and that reply from my exploring buddy on this trip is not a joke. Perhaps needless to say, we were pretty worn out after finishing this explore and went through a LOT of batteries! You might be curious about the history of this mine? As the title implies, the primary ore here was silver, but large pockets of gold and lead were discovered as well. The rich deposits at this site were first discovered in the 1870s and the adit we entered the mine through was driven in the 1880s to connect with earlier workings in this mining district. Peak production took place over the next couple of decades, but sporadic work continued through the 1960s. As the underground workings connect several different mines, it is impossible now to tell where one historic mine ended and another began. However, just be aware that you are seeing what were once several mines that have been consolidated into one. Obviously, I cut out almost all of the walk in because it was mostly featureless tunnel and I figured you didn’t want to see two full-length videos of us just walking. Although, I was tempted to have a video of that just so you could see how long the walk in is! However, the wind noise is annoying and so you are receiving the highlights version of the long walk we made to get to the heart of the mountain where the good stuff like that elevator and historic hoist were to be found. Don’t worry, the wind noise goes away once we really get inside. That inclined winze we follow up in the coming videos leads to some really amazing finds… If you’re a fan of any of the content that has been on this channel, stick with this series because this mine plays host to some of the best stuff we have ever found. The “we” on this explore was another YouTuber that goes by the handle of “Mines of the West” and has a focus on exploring abandoned mines in Oregon and Washington. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Exploring Three Levels of the Massive and Abandoned Azurite Mine
 
13:07
The Azurite Mine was mostly a copper mine. Perched high on a mountainside overlooking the Nevada desert are several portals to this massive mine. I explored three of the portals -- a lower level, a mid-level, and the uppermost level. The mine is absolutely impressive (compared to others in the same mining district) due to the size and amount of stopes that are in it. I spent approximately three hours exploring the Azurite Mine. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundExploration #Goodsprings #AzuriteMine

California Gold & Silver Mine, Standard Hill Mines Company
 
05:06
The Right Time for an Informed Investor! CALIFORNIA GOLD & SILVER MINE ___Standard Hill Mines Company___ Is an independent claim holder in Kern County, California. Standard Hill Mines owns a group of five patented and 14 unpatented mining claims, approximately 300 + acres, about 3 miles south of Mojave, 65 miles north of Los Angeles, California. From its discovery in 1894 until underground mining finished in 1956, it is estimated that Standard Hill Mines produced approximately 150,000 oz gold and approximately 500,000 oz silver, from over 15,000 ft of horizontal drifts and stopes to a depth of 900ft down the dip of the mineralization. During open pit mining by Shell Oil Co. (Shell)/Billiton Minerals (Billiton) from 1987 to 1990 it is estimated an additional 77,500 oz of gold and 258,000 oz of silver were produced. Standard Hill Mines is a well documented, historical producer. It lies within the Mojave Mining District that has been active for almost 120 years. The property has not had any exploration activity performed on it since mining was completed in 1990 by Shell/Billiton. Historical records, as well as the exploration database created by Shell/Billiton during its exploration in the 1980s, indicate that the property still has potential for more economic mineralization. The property is currently leased to Granite Construction of California for the extraction of non-mineralized aggregate and rock. In December 2013, Tetra Tech was commissioned to complete a technical review of Standard Hill Mines property. This report is to comply with disclosure and reporting requirements set forth in National Instrument 43-101. Tetra Tech is of the opinion that the property, as well as the database, is of sufficient quality to warrant further exploration and/or evaluation. In June 2015,Mine Development Associates (MDA) made a polygonal estimate of the Standard Hill Mines property in order to guide corporate decisions regarding development of the project. MDA states the preliminary estimated tonnage, grade and ounces for the Standard Hill Mines area are twelve million tonnes grading 0.02oz Au/T and 0.15oz Ag/T for a total of 240,000oz of gold and 1,800,000oz of silver. Based on MDA’s knowledge of Standard Hill Mines data, there is some Indicated material that would be defined, possibly even some Measured and the rest would be Inferred. Price $12,500,000 - Will consider all reasonable offers For the opportunity to discuss the mines in further detail, please contact Phil.

Tallapoosa Mining District, Nevada with Chip Hoehler
 
03:21
You will find this district by taking Ruby Ave. off of HIghway 50 in Silver Springs Nevada. The road starts out paved, but quickly becomes graded. Once you begin to climb in elevation I would recommend a 4wd vehicle--as the road quickly deteriorates, or walk the final two miles. From the highway to the mines is about 7 miles. The road does continue past, eventually connecting with highway 80. The second frame of the video looks back down towards Silver Springs--the origin of the road. There is not too much information about this district, but I would suspect it was discovered in the 1850's (it is located in the Virginia Mountains--the same mountain range Virginia City is in), but not seriously prospected until well into the 20th century--probably in the 1960's or 70's. I don't think this area was particularly productive, and whatever gold/silver deposits were of low grade. You can see where some quartz veins have been uncovered and sampled (as pictured), but mostly top soil was removed with heavy equipment and processed elsewhere. Virtually all of the sampling areas were uncovered with bulldozers. Only the remains of one building are left--which is on a hill overlooking most of the district.

Great Finds At A Gold Mine In The Sierras
 
25:44
The area where this mine is located is absolutely thick with mining history – some of the densest concentration of gold mines and historical mining activity that I am aware of… There isn’t a rock in this mining district that wasn’t turned over by a miner at some point in the past 175 years. So, it is no surprise that we discovered a lot going on at this site and, as the afternoon progressed, this mine just kept revealing more and more. It’s kind of funny as when we arrived in the morning, we expected this to just be a quickie mine explore. However, it took us until after dark! And, undoubtedly, we missed some mining equipment and other features in the darkness. Inside the more modern haulage adit seen in this video, I was disappointed by that stope that had collapsed down the ore chute as we were off to a very promising start. If the reports I have seen are correct, there are a couple of thousand feet of workings left to explore beyond that caved section. The reports also list this as both a lode and a placer mine. I didn’t see any evidence of lode activity in what we were able to see, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t run across a vein deeper into the mountain. They may have also been referencing work across the creek that you’ll see in the third video (3 of 3) in this series. That caved section was placer though... I’m always talking about how much less stable the placer mines are and that is further evidence of what I’m talking about. There wasn’t a pebble out of place on my whole walk in through the haulage adit. But, what was caved? The underground placer deposit. I hope those of you with lode mines to explore in nice, dry climates appreciate how fortunate you are! It was quite the treat to see that compressor room and bunkhouse (I’m assuming that’s what the upstairs was) still relatively intact and with all of that gear inside... I’d imagine there are still plenty of treasures hidden under all of those boards from the buildings that collapsed. However, neither of us felt like spending the whole afternoon moving boards around and dodging rusty nails – especially when there was still so much more to see. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

Exploring Monte Cristo's Abandoned Mystery Mine (Part 1 of 2)
 
20:19
I'm excited to present the first part of the Mystery Mine two-part series. This mine has been on my list for a LONG time now and I was really excited to finally explore it. The Mystery Mine complex contains over 12,000ft of underground workings on three primary levels. This series focuses on the lowest of those levels, the Mystery #3. The Mystery #3 was the main haulage tunnel servicing the Mystery, Pride of the Woods, and Pride of the Mountains Mines. The tunnel passes under Mystery Ridge, Glacier Creek, and Cadet Peak! This complex of mines was by-far the most significant in the Monte Cristo Mining District. The Pride-Mystery complex produced over 300,000 tons of ore, accounting for 85-90% of district production. The Mystery #3 adit outlets to a tram terminal which connected to the concentrator down near the townsite. The Pride Mines are located on the other side of Mystery Ridge, most of the Pride workings are inaccessible. The mines are all connected via stopes and raises. The Mystery Mine was one of John D. Rockefeller's ventures. In fact, Monte Cristo likely would not have been as significant as it was if it weren't for Mr. Rockefeller's money. The mine was discovered in the 1890's and was abandoned by 1907. Ore material contained Pyrite, Arsenopyrite, Chalcopyrite, Galena, and others. The minerals recovered were gold, silver, lead, arsenic. Part two of the series will pick up where we left off. I will release part two on November 19th.

Louisville Mega Cavern Underneath all ten lanes of the Watterson Expressway and parts of the local zoo in Louisville, Kentucky, there’s a 100-acre former limestone mine known as the Louisville Mega Cavern. It’s classified as a building because of its support structures, and is therefore technically the largest building in the state of Kentucky. 7. Salina Turda Amusement Park The Salina Turda amusement park in Romania is located within one of the world’s oldest salt mines, which dates back to the 17th century. Between then and 1932, when the mine officially closed, over three billion tons of salt were mined from this site underneath Turda, Transylvania, which lies 400 feet below the ground’s surface. 6. Subtropolis Business Park In 2014, this $60 million data center was opened in a former underground limestone mine in Kansas City, Missouri. It was developed by Lamar Hunt, the late owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, in collaboration with Hunt Midwest Real Estate Development. 5. Wieliczka Salt Mine and Health Resort The 800-year-old Wieliczka Salt Mine is located in southern Poland in the town of Wieliczka, which is part of the Krakow metropolitan area. The mine was excavated in the 13th century and continuously produced sodium chloride, or table salt, until 2007. That is a really long time! As the result of falling salt prices and mine flooding, commercial salt mining was discontinued in 1996. 4. Lake Ore-Be-Gone Lake Ore-Be-Gone is an artificial freshwater lake in Gilbert, Minnesota that was made by flooding three open-pit ore mines with water. The tranquil lake is known for its crystal-clear water, which looks “almost tropical” on an especially sunny day. 3. White Mountain Publications Bookstore In the Cobalt Mining District of Northern Ontario, you can find White Mountain Publications, an independent bookstore which is also most likely the world’s only bookstore that’s part of an old silver mine. 2. Creekside Mushrooms Ltd. Located in Worthington, PA, Creekside Mushrooms Ltd. was once the world’s largest mushroom facility and the nation’s only underground mushroom operation. The facility was located within an old limestone mine, whose subterranean conditions proved to be ideal for growing white button mushrooms. 1. Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira This Roman Catholic church was built 200 meters (220 yards) below ground in the tunnels of a former salt mine near the Colombian town of Zipaquira, about 49 kilometers (30 miles) north of Bogota. It serves as both a place of pilgrimage and a tourist destination, and is considered one of the most notable achievements of Colombian architecture. I’ve been here and it is pretty amazing!

06:36
Our last stop was in rural, remote Nevada at the abandoned Blue Dick Mine. The mine sits atop a mountain and is accessed by hiking up a steep, old mining road. This entire area had a lot of different mining activity over the years. Many relics are still in place in various spots in the area. This was a really scenic and interesting mine to explore and document.
Nada and Buckhorn Gold Mines - Broadwater Co, Montana - 2018
 
07:00
The Buckhorn and Nada Gold Mining Property is located on the southern end of the east flank of the Elkhorn Mountain range in the Quartzite Ridge District in Broadwater County, Montana. aka the Cedar Plains District. The property consists of three lode mineral claims totaling sixty (60) acres. The claims cover the workings of the Buckhorn and Nada Mines and all the related workings as they cross over a short ridgeline. Although the properties are in close proximity to eachother, the workings underground are not interconnected. The Buckhorn and Nada Mines are valuable for their gold deposits, which while not uncommon in the Radersburg district, are uncommon in the Quartzite Ridge District which is commonly known for Silver deposits. The Buckhorn and Nada are documented for free gold in iron oxides. These deposits have been verified by Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. surveyors inside the workings of the Nada Mine. The gold is visible to the naked eye and can be traced in various veins in the workings. There are some buildings and infrastructure above ground on the claims is quite extensive but not usable. The mine portals are open, accessible and provide easy access into the workings. The air was measured in both the Buckhorn and Nada Mines and found stable at 20%. The mines are cut into competent country rock and stable in their current state. The Nada Mine is an adit cut on a horizontal plane and intersecting several gold veins as mapped and contained in this report. The Buckhorn Mine consists of two steeply decline shafts of at least eighty feet. These mines will require rope and safety gear to access and have not been fully surveyed or documented. The shafts have a gating system and a door mechanism for access. Prior to Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. on site survey, the mines were last examined by Alexander Winchell of the US Bureau of Mines and United States Geological Society in 1914. Winchell reported the mines as maintained but not being worked. The anomalous gold deposits were also noted with visible free gold noted in several veins inside the workings. The mines are mentioned in a 1954 report by the USGS and again by Klepper of the USGS in 1971, however, neither surveyor bothered to examine the sites or the mines and simply regurgitated previous surveyor’s information.
Eagle Mine Colorado
 
11:54
Eagle Mine was a Colorado silver mine founded in the 1880s which went on to become the the largest producer of Silver in Colorado. It shut down in the 1980s. The closure of the mine resulted in its eventual flooding, which in turn contaminated the groundwater and prompted the EPA to step in and order the evacuation of the nearby town. In this video we explore some of the remaining surface structures. NOTE: I apologize for the quality of this video. We hiked down the side of the cliff and ran out of water along the way. I was exhausted and the lens got dirty in the process. I've identified some changes I'll be implementing in upcoming videos regarding sound and video quality. Stay tuned.

Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc.® Presents: The Silver Dollar Mine, New Mexico
 
09:45
XXXThe Silver Dollar mine is a historic Gold and Silver mining claim that dates back to 1894-1895. The mines have been worked over the years on a small scale. The largest developments in 1900 when a double battery stamp and gravity mill was installed and again in 1939 when a leach type mill was established at the site. The Mine was again worked in the 1950’s and 1960’s and produced a “good living” for the owners (oral communications). There was never any production officially reported from the mine, which only indicates that the owners kept recoveries private. Its inconceivable to build mills and process on site if there is no recovery. The Silver Dollar Mine resides in the western Burro Mountains and is located in what is locally known as the “Golden Halo”. The Golden Halo is an area of mineralization emanating in a circular pattern from the massive Tyrone Copper Mine. The Tyrone, while a documented copper mine, is no slouch in the gold department boasting over 1,000,000 ounces of gold produced up to 1986. The Silver Dollar has limited history and its spotty at that. The mine is reached by an offshoot road that breaks from another small branch road. The mine is a reported 160’ in depth with various cross cut drifts. Based on waste dumps and remaining tailings, surveyors estimate there are roughly 1500’ of total workings. The mine resides in a general gold trend that has had pockets of gold developed with values of over 100 ounces/Ton in Gold. (Osmer, Foster).
You Would Not Believe The Location Of This Mine
 
29:44
I have NEVER had to struggle to find a parking spot to explore an abandoned mine before, but that was exactly our experience in visiting this impressive limestone mine in the Italian city of Florence… After finally locating a place to park (it is never easy to find parking in Italy in a large urban center), we then had to walk several blocks along busy city streets in our mine exploring gear. This was a little awkward - particularly on the way back, when we were all muddy... Fortunately, we were soon at the giant mill connected to this mine and were able to get away from the urban noise and traffic into a slice of nature remaining on the grounds of this sprawling site. Do you see those hills in the background of the thumbnail image that overlook the city of Florence? That’s where we were - on the edge of the city. You can actually see the mine if you zoom in on that picture. It feels like a strange place for a large mine, to say the least, but there was a fantastic limestone deposit there and we weren’t so squeamish in the past about large industry and large projects. Apparently, this mine actually extends up the hill on various levels. One can only imagine what those levels higher up the hill must be like. The mill is massive though and so I’m sure those additional workings are too. We didn’t see any ore passes dropping into the level we explored from workings above. However, it is possible that some of the caved sections we encountered concealed these connections. Alternatively, the mine may have had a tram system carrying buckets of limestone down to the mill from high up on the hill. I actually saw a massive tram system like this in another part of Italy last year that supported hundreds of buckets – spaced approximately forty feet apart – running on a continuous loop up and down a mountain. It was a really impressive sight to see and I would love to have shot some video of it for you, but it was along a narrow mountain road with a fair amount of traffic and absolutely nowhere to pull over. In contrast to a valuable mineral like gold, limestone has to be mined on a very large scale to be profitable. So, in my experience, limestone mines are always huge. Thus, we see things like those corridors of pillars and cavernous stopes where vast amounts of limestone were extracted. My exploring buddy for this day was Alessio (who discovered this site) and his exploring channel can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoy6TTAGyJDVPxv9DQrs3LA ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Exploring a Hidden Abandoned Mine in Remote Nevada
 
05:01
While hiking up a mountain to another well-known mine site, I found this abandoned mine not far from the trail. It features a downward sloping tunnel that goes far into the mountain. There were a few drift tunnels off of the main tunnel. A collapse blocked the main tunnel deep in the mine, but the collapse was passable. I chose to turn around at that point and head back out. Once outside, I found another mine entrance not far from this one. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundExploration
The Potosi Mine: Going Deep Inside Nevada's Oldest Lode Mine
 
05:41
We hiked up to the Potosi Mine to check out Nevada's oldest lode mine. The Potosi Mine was discovered in the mid-1800s and was owned by various companies until about 1930. The mine was mainly a silver mine, but other minerals were also mined there including zinc. We explored nearly all of this extensive, six-level abandoned mine.

Silver City Mine District - Part 9 "A Cabin With A View"
 
02:13
This miners cabin had the outhouse built indoors with a wonderful view of Silver City below. Many of the miners built there cabins closer to the mines for accessibility. I did capture a couple EVP after clip inside so we know that it is haunted. A wonderful full moon just came over the mountains and so we wrapped up after this to go eat dinner. I look forward to returning here and exploring some other parts of this district.

Silver Lake Ghost Town Day Hike Silverton Colorado
 
05:57
Silver Lake is an easy to moderate day hike. The trail starts at the top of the switch backs. It is easy to follow. This first section of this trail is a bit steep but short lived. This trail eventually approaches a rock band that from below looks a little sketchy. Once at the bottom of the short cliff the route up and through the rock is obvious. There are a few old steel cables in this area that can be used as a handrail in a few places. When we did this trip there was also a rope in place. Keep in mind that these hand lines are nylon and nylon breaks down quickly in the sun and weather. The line could also be damaged from rock fall. I never trust something that is in place like this. It is best to bring your own if you think you may need it. One thing is certain here, you do not want to fall. It would be quite a drop. After the rock band the trail levels out up to the lake and ghost town. It is no more than two miles to the lake one way. Silver Lake is in quite a pretty location surrounded by high peaks. The lake is not as picturesque like Ice Lake or Columbine Lake due to the debris that has been littered in it, mainly steel. Old artifacts litter the shore. The structures that remain are really fun to explore. I included maps with brief descriptions and coordinates in the video. The road to the trailhead is good although steep towards the end. Jeep, SUV or truck will have no problems here. Four wheel drive is not a bad idea due to the steep section.

Empire Gold Mine - Keystone District, South Dakota
 
04:40
The Empire Mineral Property is a grouping of three (3), twenty(20) acre mining claims. These claims Covering a contiguous 60 acres and all of the mines, prospects and workings of the Historic Empire Gold Mine in the Black Hills Mining District of Pennington, South Dakota. The claims cover the Forrest City Mine, the Golden Slipper and the Empire Mines. Average returns from the surface dumps is over 5 oz/T in gold. The Golden Slipper and Forrest City mines are documented as interconnected at the 550’ level. The mines were located as early as 1893 and produced good amounts of free gold from their inception until 1934. Empire Gold Mining Company purchased the Golden Slipper and the Forrest City Mines in 1934 and combined the two mines under their moniker. From 1935 to 1941 the mines were known as the Empire Mines. The mines produced substantial gold values and were in fact on an upswing in development in 1940 when the mines were shut down due to the War Act. The company dissolved during the war and the mines were held by some small companies until 1980 when they were re-surveyed with the surgence in gold prices. Homestake Mining held control until the early 1990s but did no development or even exploratory work.
Exploring the Treasury Tunnel
 
16:25
The Treasury Tunnel was a very long haulage tunnel driven in hopes of intersecting a rich ore body at far depth below the surface. The tunnel was driven over a mile straight back into the mountain and connects with an extensive set of workings up on the hill. The connecting raise is over 1,500ft deep. It's unclear if this raise was used as simply an ore chute or if it was a manway as well. The Treasury Tunnel also contains several thousand feet of drifts, in total 11,000ft of tunnel were driven on the Treasury Level. The upper workings of the mine were very profitable, they produced some of the richest silver ore in the state of Nevada. The Treasury Tunnel attempted to explore these veins at a depth of 2,000ft below the surface. Unfortunately, the ore became less profitable further down, making the Treasury Tunnel project a bust. The tunnel was abandoned and since then, minimal work has been done to any of the mines in the district. The district's prime was in the mid to late 1800's, but it is unclear to me exactly what date the Treasury Tunnel was started. The district produced millions in silver before the 1900's and was once home to thousands of people. Today, most of the mines (besides the Treasury) are collapsed. Our exploration of the Treasury Tunnel ends in an unexpected collapse over 3,000ft into the tunnel. I'm not sure what caused the collapse, but it may be an intersection with a raise. Unfortunately, what lies beyond the collapse will remain a mystery for now...

East Tintic Mountain Exploratory Canyon Route - Eureka, Utah
 
02:23
About 1 1/2 hours from Salt Lake City, this four-wheel drive route is in the Prospector OHV Network and brings you along the East Tintic Mountains. This route gives you off-road access into the historic canyons in which the prospectors mined silver and gold in this area referred to as the "Tintic Mining District". The Tintic Mining District is among the oldest mining camps in Utah. Ore was first discovered in December 1869 about a mile east of Silver City, and the district was organized the following spring. The district is named in honor of the Ute Indian Chief Tintic who lived his whole life in the area with his tribe. Shortly after the district was organized, an influx of settlers, prospectors, and miners started to move in. By 1899, the Tintic District was the leading mining center of the state of Utah Get the trail details and download a GPS route today at: http://www.trailsoffroad.com/trails/1788-east-tintic-mountain-exploratory-canyon-route http://TrailsOffroad.com

Lucky Dollar Gold Mining Claim - Montana - 2017
 
09:46
The Lucky Dollar Mine, also known as the Powderly and the Silver Spoon, is located in a remote part of the Castle Mountain Mining Disctrict in Montana. It was discovered in 1887 and it appears to have been worked through the early 1900s, and again in the 1960s
