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.

Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... On 5th August 2010, all 33 of the day shift miners at the San Jose mine in Chile were missing and feared killed when their copper and gold mine collapsed. For 17 days no one knew whether they were alive or dead. Miraculously, after all hope was lost, on the 17th day the specialist drilling rigs looking for signs of life smashed through into the tunnel where the men had been clinging on. All 33 of the men were alive and well. Buried Alive: The Chilean Mine Rescue was given unprecedented access to the drilling rigs, engineers and medics for the definitive story of how this audacious rescue was carried out. The film follows the extraordinary story of the 33 miners, trapped underground for 70 days. Above ground, the film makers had unique access to document the highs and lows of the drilling teams as they pounded their way through almost half a mile of granite. Below ground the programme follows how the miners survived for so long and hears first hand from the doctors and psychologists who were keeping them alive and sane, giving extraordinary insight into the underground hell they had to endure. The rescue of all 33 Chilean miners has been an extraordinary feat of ingenuity and daring. This factual documentary explains in detail the challenges they faced and the technology they used to overcome all odds. Buried Alive: The Chilean Mine Rescue gains unique access to the key players involved to tell the story of the tireless, tough and emotional effort that went on at the San Jose Mine, away from the glare of the news cameras

Experience Going Underground in a Tanzanite Mine
 
08:15
Join me, Robert Gessner, founder of Gessner Gems, as I take you on a very rare journey into depths of a Tanzanite Mine. The operators and owners of largest and centre-most Block C, TanzaniteOne/STAMICO, operate this shaft, Main Shaft. This shaft lies in the centre of tanzanite deposit, and as you see, takes 5 minutes in the skip to get to the bottom of the shaft and to the deepest areas currently being mined. I have spent 8 years of my life working in this deposit and this mine learning about the fascinating geology of this gemstone. Just see how much work, science and cost goes into this colored gemstone mine.

Bizarre Discoveries in Mines
 
08:36
Here are 11 of the most unusual findings deep in the earth like ancient and time primate fossils or trapped toads alive in rocks!! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 7 Toads found in Rock One strange phenomena that still doesn’t have an explanation are toads that find themselves entombed deep into stone and continue to live. For years quarriers and miners have discovered to their surprise, live toads inside of the rocks they crack open. In some cases the toads are found 5, 10, and even 20 feet deep inside of rock. In all cases, they have no visible way in or out and yet in all cases they are all still alive. This bizarre phenomena is often called “toad in the hole”. No one knows how these toads find themselves in the rock, or how they survive without any water, food, or air. # 6 Ghost Miners in Mponeng The world’s deepest gold mine called the Mponeng Mine located in South Africa runs so far into the ground with so many winding tunnels that it’s almost like a dark underground city. The expansive, dark, and hot mine is almost impossible to completely keep watch over so every once in awhile an illegal squatter will be discovered. Mponeng squatters are called “ghost miners” and will find empty caverns to make their home in, illegally mine gold to sell above ground, and will even meet with prostitutes in the mines. # 5 The Bold Travelers of Mponeng - Desulforudis audaxviator In the world’s deepest gold mine, a new species of bacterium was discovered called Desulforudis audaxviator. Audaxviator translates to “bold traveller” which refers to the fact that the bacteria was found 2 miles below the surface of the Earth and is the only organism in its ecosystem. The strange bacteria has evolved to live without sunshine or oxygen. Instead, it lives off of hydrogen and sulfide as food, which come from the breakdown of radioactive elements. Basically, it’s a nuclear waste eating bacteria. It’s the only one of its kind and have amazed scientists with its complete solitude underground. # 4 Giant Roach Fossil Found in Ohio Coal Mine Geologists were combing through an old coal mine in an area known for its plant fossils when they discovered an extremely rare fossil. It was a giant roach fossil - about 4 inches long and twice as big as most modern American roaches. The fossil is rare because it’s completely in tact, while most insect fossils are only partial imprints. Fossils in the cave also preserved some of the smallest cockroach fossils ever found and their color patterns. Inside the coal mine, even more rare insect fossils were found including a rare ancient arachnid and a 60 inch long and 12 inch wide centipede. The chemistry of this coal mine in Ohio somehow preserved these insects with extreme detail that is not seen anywhere else. # 3 Dead Body found in Ghost Town Mine Hobby adventurers had the scare of their life when they were exploring an abandoned ghost town called Whroo in Victoria, Australia. The two were in the ghost town’s abandoned mine when they found a dead body covered in plastic and shoved into a deeper hole inside. The victim was a 50 year old man in a Neil Young shirt and the perpetrators were later found to be a 26 year old man and 30 year old woman. The details on this case are scarce, but it has all the makings of a really good CSI episode. # 2 Four Square Miles of Carboniferous Forest Discovered The fossils of almost an entire forest from the Carboniferous period was uncovered in the ceiling of two adjacent coal mines in Illinois. This discovery is the largest single-period fossil discovery in recorded history. Archaeologists delved into the 250 feet deep mine to explore and record the fossils. There were upwards of 200 specimens of detailed shrubs, trees, flowers, and even insects. # 1 Tiny, Strange Primate Fossil In the Krabi coal mine of Thailand, archaeologists uncovered a new species of a teacup sized primate. They found mandibles that belong to the pea-sized primates called Krabia minuta. Krabia minuta were native to Asia and are the ancestors to all monkeys, apes, and humans. They were impressively able to make it to Africa despite being separated from a body of water at the time that was bigger than the Mediterrenean sea. This bizarre find is very important for archaeologists, because it indicates a period of extreme evolution of primates in the area and will continue to yield more discoveries in years to come.

Deep Blue Mystery Mineral Inside An Abandoned Mine In Nevada
 
18:54
Well, getting to this abandoned mine proved the old adage about how you’ve got to want it… We drove as far as we could down rough dirt roads in a remote part of Nevada until even the 4WD with high clearance couldn’t go any farther. Then, we switched over to dirt bikes and rode those for many miles through the mountains until it was impossible to proceed even on the bikes. At that point, I descended the steep canyon on foot to finally reach this mine. There was certainly no road leading all of the way to the mine and there wasn’t even a trail that I saw after the road stopped. It was pure bushwhacking getting down to explore this one. Given how hard it was to get to this mine and given the fact that I lugged the drone all of the way down to the bottom of the canyon meant that you were getting drone footage in this video even if the drone had never left the ground! I didn’t see any signs of heavy equipment having been at this site (which is not surprising considering the location), but it still would have been quite a feat just bringing in the rail for the ore carts as well as the tools the miners would have needed. And if they used metal ore carts, these would HAVE to have been brought to the mine in pieces and reassembled on site. The cabin/workshop was somewhat interesting to me. I didn’t see any signs of a bed or really any signs that the miners had lived there aside from those couple of rusty cans that we saw inside. Also, that structure would not have been a pleasant place to stay in the winter! However, it would have been impossible for someone to commute in to this mine given the distances involved. So, someone must have stayed here. Given how this seemed like something of a shoestring mining operation, it makes me wonder if a couple of miners didn’t just sleep rough inside of that structure of corrugated metal during the warmer months along with their tools and that primitive fireplace to keep away the cold at night. The miners might have just worked here for a couple of seasons. While exploring this abandoned mine and its surroundings, I saw no evidence at all that anyone has visited this site in decades. The “road” – if you can even call it that – which runs closest to the site was completely overgrown and sections of it were blocked by small rockslides. All traces of whatever trail that might have once existed and descended to the mine have vanished. And, of course, there were no footprints or signs of modern human activity such as trash or tire marks within many miles of this abandoned mine. It isn’t often that one is able to visit a historical site like that in our modern era. I was quite taken with that brilliant, deep blue mystery mineral inside of the mine... I have never seen anything like it outside of the fine lapis lazuli that is mined in Afghanistan. However, I don’t believe that what we saw inside of the mine was lapis lazuli… Was it? I sincerely hope that someone in the audience can definitively identify it. ***** 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 click here for the 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 niche of our history is gone forever. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Mongolia's Mining Boom (2012)

Australian miner Rio Tinto is about to open one of the biggest copper mines on the planet in Mongolia, which will soon account for more than 30% of the country's entire GDP. "Some of the optimistic geologists we have say that this business could run for up to 100 years", Cameron McRae from Rio Tinto explains. But the company only cedes the Mongolian government a 34% stake, provoking worries about where the benefits of Mongolia's resource wealth will go. There's concerns the government is ill-equipped to strike complex mining deals in the national interest. "The deal is a financial transaction and whether it's really beneficial to Mongolia, I have many doubts about that", argues Dorjdari from the Responsible Mining Initiative. Environmentalists also worry that the mining push has come so fast and so aggressively that proper checks and balances are not in place. "Most tourists come to Mongolia because they want to see that pristine open space blue sky, but what if we couldn't offer it anymore?"

The Mine Where Everyone Missed: Part 3 - We Didn't Give Up
 
06:30
You’ll frequently hear me mention that I don’t like unfinished business. In mine exploring, that means that I don’t like having sections of mines that are unexplored… My exploring buddy, Adit Addicts, shares this personality trait and it has gotten us in trouble more than once over the years. Fortunately, no permanent damage has been done yet (well, perhaps with the exception of a concussion or two), but it has introduced us to plenty of suffering at times. The unfinished business at this mine was left hanging over our season like a bad smell and so, at the very end of the season, we made the long, arduous journey back out to this mine. Given that it was October by that point, it meant much lower temperatures and riding out to the mine in the dark. Adit Addicts had rigged up a homemade collapsible ladder that did, in fact, get the job done inside of the mine, but was anything but easy to transport. Imagine somebody trying to ride a motorcycle through thick brush on a very rough road with half of a ladder slung across their body and you’ll get a pretty good understanding of what he went through (much to my amusement at times). The ladder was such a pain in the ass to carry that it is actually still inside of the mine, waiting for any future mine explorers wishing to access those upper levels (You’re welcome). Initially, he tried to strap the ladder to the side of his motorcycle. However, it came tumbling down after about forty feet of him taking off from the truck. So, perhaps needless to say, it was a long night… At least we didn’t have to contend with mosquitoes or yellow jackets at that time of the year though! Given the extensive workings that we explored previously at this mine and the mystery raise at the end of the main haulage adit, were we hopeful about where those upper levels might lead? Yes, of course we were. Were we disappointed at how trivial they turned out to be? Yes, of course we were. Unfortunately, mine exploring is often like that. As I occasionally mention, the videos that get published are usually the successful trips. More often than not, we find that the historical mine we were hunting for has eroded shut or been destroyed by the Forest Service. The primary reason I publish these videos is for the purpose of documentation. Having seen so many historical sites and mines disappear in my lifetime, I want there to be a record of what is being lost and what has already been lost. Therefore, I try to be very thorough in shooting video inside of mines. I recognize that that might prove somewhat dull at times (as with this video). However, I think it is important for the documentation of a historic site to be as complete as possible because it may end up being the last and/or only documentation of a site. Maybe fifty years from now, a miner or historian will want to know what this mine was all about... The Forest Service, BLM, et al use mine exploring videos as a guide for which mines to destroy next (the more attention a mine receives, the more it moves up the priority list for destruction). Therefore, I am compelled to not reveal the location of mines in order to protect them from these “servants of the public.” When I confirm that a mine has been destroyed due to natural forces or government agencies, I will change the title of a video to reflect the real name of the mine so that it can then be known which mine was documented and what it looked like inside. So, I hope you’ll understand why I post videos like this one. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place.

Fantastically Preserved Old Mine Out In The Desert
 
26:11
It is a rare treat to come across an abandoned mine that is preserved as well as this one. Taking the age of this mine into account, having the mining equipment still in working order, having all of those tools still around, still being able to read the paperwork left inside the mine – that’s pretty extraordinary stuff when compared to most abandoned mines (and we’ve been to quite a lot of them now). We primarily have the dry desert conditions to thank for the mine being in this state as well as the fact that it is exceedingly difficult to get to it (However, I also think that not many people know about this particular abandoned mine). There are no roads to this mine – only the remains of a mule trail, which is now very faint. So, think about the fact that EVERYTHING you see at this site was hauled in on foot by men or mules. That’s impressive considering the amount of rail and some of the heavy equipment at this mining operation. I love sites like this because they give such a great insight into how the miners lived in the past. Based on the artifacts at this site, for example, we know what the miners read, what they ate, where they washed their hands, where they slept at night, etc. It is not difficult at all to imagine what day-to-day life was like for the crew of miners that worked here. A few questions I had… I would be very curious to know what the other building next to the intact miner’s cabin that we explored was (the building that had tumbled down the wash). We found artifacts quite a way down that wash, but nothing that gave us an insight into what that particular building was. Given the other bedframe present at the site, it might have just been another place to sleep. Hard to imagine miners sharing a bed and there was just one bed in the cabin we explored! Also, I would be curious to know where the stamp mill was and how large it was. It seems that a fair amount of it may have been buried from the waste rock pile shifting. Lastly, I would love to know more about that caved adit across from the miner’s cabin. Was that the original adit at this site? How far back did it go? As I said at the introduction to this video, credit for locating this mine goes to my exploring buddy, Adit Addicts, whose YouTube channel can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIXOU8aR7o50X6q2wQ0wbCQ All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Exploring A Large Limestone Mine - Part 3
 
19:52
I’m not exaggerating when I say that this section of the abandoned limestone mine has the biggest adits (mine tunnels) that I have ever seen – and we have seen a lot of underground mines… It seems apparent that the miners were intent on extracting as much limestone as possible, while maintaining the minimum of what was necessary for the structural integrity of the mine. As such, we encountered adit after adit, all in rows with interconnecting tunnels. These rows of adits extend to the levels above and below too, leaving just a skeleton of stone behind to prop everything up. It really is an extraordinary site. Bear in mind, we only scratched the surface of all that makes up this mine. There are many levels we did not access and many drifts we did not go into. Given the sheer scale of the workings in this section of the mine, we assumed that these workings must be newer than the first underground workings we explored. Some have expressed surprise that the miners did not simply pursue an open pit operation at this limestone deposit. In fact, the remainder of this deposit is being quarried nearby. However, the miners were not stupid and the concrete plant is still in business. So, give them the benefit of the doubt in regard to pursuing the limestone deposit underground in this section. Given how low labor costs used to be and given that earthmoving equipment can handle a lot more now than it could more than a century ago when they started this mine, it was probably more economical for the miners to punch in from the side and to haul the limestone straight out rather than to dig down from the top in order to haul it up and out to be turned into concrete. Again, a big thank you to Alessio for sharing this mine with us...

Historic Gold Mine & Mill Deep In The Forest  - Part 2
 
18:01
There is quite a lot to this abandoned mine site and so while I found a fair amount when I was wandering around on my own, I still missed interesting pieces of mining equipment that Michael showed me the next day. Further, I’m quite confident that there is plenty more scattered around in the brush or underneath the ruined buildings that we both missed. Eventually, forest fires will roar through all of the areas where these abandoned mines we document are located. When that happens, many hidden adits and pieces of metal equipment that were hidden away in brush will be revealed. It certainly isn’t in any way worth having a forest fire for, but it is an interesting side effect. As I mentioned in the prior video in this series, credit for our trip to this mine site goes to Gold Country Explorers. They get out in the forests (mostly in California’s Gold Country) and have an uncanny knack for tracking down stamp mills and other impressive elements of our industrial history – not to mention, a fair number of adits too! Check out their site – they post some great pictures on there: https://www.facebook.com/Gold-Country-Explorers-850167371691275/ It felt good to discover that adit that the Forest Service missed near the top of the hill. They are pretty thorough, but some things are not easy to spot in the forest and many adits are not marked on the topographic map. As I mentioned in the video, I’d like to show you the portal and how this adit was essentially hiding in plain sight. However, if I post that, the Forest Service will be able to find it pretty easily and will be out there as soon as the snow melts to gate it. So, I reluctantly declined to share the view from the outside. Like I said in the video, we need to preserve some of our industrial history outside of a museum. I also think it is important to maintain at least something in the way of the spirit of adventure and the excitement of discovery in our increasingly fearful and risk-averse society. The site of the shaft that we visited toward the end of the video was so badly degraded that I mistakenly speculated that it was an adit (easy to do when there were adits all over the place). However, my subsequent research demonstrated that it was, in fact, a shaft. I could not find many records on it, but the shaft dropped down for almost four hundred feet and apparently had two levels to tap into the hard rock gold veins underground. The large waste rock pile all around that section is supposed to be from the shaft. I’m not sure how the ore was transported from the shaft to the mill, but I’d be curious to know. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Awesome Color Show In An Abandoned Mine
 
31:39
This abandoned mine had more than one “most” and THAT is impressive because a “most” is, by definition, a rare occurrence. However, this mine was, in fact, the most colorful that I have ever explored and also had timber sets that were under the most severe pressure that I have ever seen before. Pretty impressive to have two “mosts” in one mine, wouldn’t you agree? Now, I’m afraid that many viewers are going to ask me which minerals are creating those splendid colors inside of the mine. The short answer is that I am not a geologist and I don’t know. However, I would normally associate those blues with copper ores. The mineral that looked like chunks of gold scattered between the blues is actually pyrite (also known as “fool’s gold”). Trust me, miners would not leave visible chunks of gold behind! There were, of course, veins of quartz mixed in as well. Known minerals to have been extracted at this site include silver, copper, tungsten, lead, zinc and gold. As with many mines in Nevada, it started out as a silver mine though. I don’t get rattled too easily when exploring abandoned mines, but those shattered timbers toward the end made me very uncomfortable. It was dry in this mine and so those timbers didn’t look like that because they were rotted, but because they seemed to be getting squeezed in from the sides with incredible force. I say that the intense pressure seemed to be coming from the sides rather than the top because the ties for the ore cart rails were snapped in half and it was, primarily, the timbers on the ribs (sides) of the adit that were snapped. The snapped timbers supporting the back (top) looked as if they were broken from being squeezed from both sides rather than from something pressing down on them. I am, frankly, amazed that those timbers have not caved yet as it seemed like just a bat farting back there would create enough of a disturbance to bring that whole section of the mine crashing down. I’m referring to the proverbial straw breaking the camel’s back and that section didn’t seem like that would need much of a straw to finish things. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Visiting A Weird California Gold Mine
 
19:43
You never know what you’re going to get when exploring abandoned mines and this weird little gold mine is a prime example of that. Where do I start with this one? That homemade stamp mill that looks like it was made in someone’s garage? I’ve certainly never seen anything like that before. That jaw crusher for crushing the gold ore coming out of the mine? One of the largest I have ever seen… That enormous trench leading to the upper adit? I’ve certainly never seen anything like that before either. That series of cuts spiraling around the center point where it seemed a building had been at one time? That’s another thing I have certainly never seen before. So, what we were able to explore underground did not end up being enormous, but there were a lot of interesting things going on here. So far, I have been unable to locate any records that outline the history of this abandoned mine, which is a shame because I’d love to know more about it (and to share that with you). It’s difficult to tell with the homemade and repurposed equipment, but if I had to guess, I would estimate that the last work at this mine was done as recently as the late 1970s or even the early 1980s (a time that coincides with a large increase in gold mining activity as a result of surging gold prices during that period). So, it is possible that someone that mined here can recognize it and weigh in with additional details. As I mentioned at the start of the video, the guys I went out with on this day (and that took me to this site) are the Gold Country Explorers. The link to their page online is below: https://tinyurl.com/y3galchq I can’t help but cringe when seeing terrain that is as overgrown as this area in the Plumas National Forest is… The high cost of the criminally incompetent mismanagement of our forests in the U.S. is increasingly plain for all to see (and was painfully demonstrated last year in the deadly forest fire that destroyed the California town of Paradise). For those of you not familiar with natural fire cycles in the western United States, fires used to burn through these forests as a result of natural causes every 8-12 years on average. This process would thin out the brush and clear out dead material. This meant that fires were of a low intensity and large, healthy trees could easily shrug off the minor fires that passed through. The result was relatively open forests, dominated by big trees and supportive of diverse flora and fauna. Then came the policy decision from the U.S. Forest Service that ALL fires are bad and must be extinguished immediately. The results were predictable: dangerously overgrown, unhealthy forests that are filled with highly combustible material and are capable of supporting far fewer species... Now, rather than getting low intensity fires that improve the health of the forest, we get firestorms that incinerate everything in their path, killing even the largest trees. If the above sounds like I am speaking from extensive personal experience, well, I am. We really have a lot to thank the Forest Service for. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

Diavik Diamond Mine This diamond mine, located in Canada’s remote Northwest Territories is actually a pretty recent hole! Work only began on this thing in 2003, and it is one of the world’s preeminent sources of gem diamonds. Since mining operations began, it has produced over 100 million carats of diamonds!! 6. Berkeley Pit Located in Butte, Montana, this copper mine is now filled with heavily acidic water. Opened in 1955, this mine was used to get copper out of the Earth. Ironically it closed on Earth day in 1982. In the 80’s Berkeley Pit was 1700 feet deep and 900 feet wide. Approximately 320 million tons of ore and over 700 million tons of waste rock were mined from the pit. 5. Mir Mine This is a diamond mine, and one of the largest excavations in history. This mine in Russia is the 2nd largest man made hole in the world. Located in outside of Mirny, a small town in Eastern Siberia, this place is 1,722 feet (525 meters) deep, and 3,900 feet (1.25 kilometers) across. 4. IceCube Neutrino Observatory There are many different ways to make holes in the Earth as you know, or will soon learn. But for the University of Wisconsin, they wanted to do a study of the Earth from a different perspective. They decided to go to Antarctica and drill a massive hole into the very ice caps of the Earth to see what's down there. Thus, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory was made. 3. Kimberley Diamond Mine Also known as the Big Hole, the Kimberly diamond mine in South Africa, is home to the world’s largest diamond mine! It is so large it is visible by space and has produced some of the world’s largest diamonds. 2. Bingham County Mine Also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine in Utah, this mine definitely takes the cake. This copper mine has been in use for over a century, and it's still open to this day. It's the biggest copper mine in the world and provides about 25% of the country’s copper needs. 1. Kola Superdeep Borehole Have you ever wondered what's at the center of the Earth? Fact is, no one really knows which is why the Kola Superdeep Borehole is so important. While the Bingham County Mine may be the largest manmade hole in the world, the Kola Superdeep Borehole is the deepest hole in the world!

Sago Mine Disaster
 
43:34
Thirteen men sat in the best barricade they could build, enduring...hoping. They had used their single hour of oxygen from the only Self Contained Self Rescuer issued to them by the company. Their families waited outside living through one of the most difficult times of their lives, praying to see their loved ones once again. As time wore on, we would learn the ultimate fate of those men, those husbands, those fathers, those grandfathers, brothers, uncles, nephews. One was alive, barely holding on…the others had perished in the thick poisoned air of the mine. The miners of Sago were like so many of us. They took one of the few jobs available to them, jobs that would allow them to live in the places they had long called home, jobs that would pay enough to support their families. If only the company had given them more than one SCSR—if only there had been a law—but we know how much power money holds over the hearts of men. It would be the suffering and tragic loss of life of those 12 brave souls—the pain of constant loss felt by their families—that would finally see to it that every coal miner in the United States would never face the same crisis. Millions of Americans became outraged at the events that played out on their televisions, and the ensuing public outcry would accomplish a feat that has seldom been accomplished in the history of US coal mining—the power of coal industry lobbyists was outweighed by the voice of the public in the halls of government. Laws were passed and now additional SCSRs must be purchased by coal companies, underground safe havens must be built and supply miners with three day of oxygen, food, and water. Each time my crew passed a safe haven and SCSR stash on our way to the section, I would think of those men, I would think of their final hours. I would pay my respects to them in my own way and wish that the corruption of the coalfields had not taken their lives. I hope that other miners do the same and remember the day the miners of Sago perished and the hearts of their families were forever broken. May you all rest in peace. God Bless.

Historic Mining Equipment Heaven In Altenberg, Germany
 
19:39
Tin deposits were first discovered around the small German town of Altenberg in 1440 and for the next five centuries, mining tin provided the primary source of employment for the locals. Fortunately for Altenberg, the deposits of tin ore next to the town proved to be one of the largest in Europe. However, in the 20th century, falling commodities prices stalled tin mining in the state of Saxony. The collapse of the Soviet Union (Saxony was part of East Germany) provided the death blow to the industry. No longer supported by subsidies from the Communist government, mines could not be kept open just for the sake of providing jobs and so, after 550 years of continuous mining in Saxony, the last tin mine closed down in 1991. Fortunately, officials in Germany appear to be more concerned with preserving their history than their counterparts in the U.S. and so rather than permanently closing the abandoned tin mines and bulldozing all traces of their existence on the surface to bare dirt (I’m looking at you Forest Service), the Germans opted to save as much as they could. A section of the tin mine seen in this video was rehabbed and some of the mining equipment abandoned outside was brought inside the adit to protect it and so visitors could see how it once operated. Other equipment left outside was placed under protective cover. The incredible stamp mill, finally abandoned in 1952 after more than five hundred years of operation and still containing the unique milling equipment it started out with, was refurbished and preserved in 1957. Interesting that Communist East Germany proved able to protect their (capitalist) industrial history, but we can’t… ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Going Deep Underground in the Manhattan Mine
 
10:26
Spent an afternoon in the desert exploring the massive Manhattan Mine. This was a gold and silver mine that was worked from the early 1900s until the late 1940s. The Manhattan Mine's layout is very unique and somewhat confusing because a long, narrow, deep, crevice-like quarry was dug with tunnels and vertical shafts bisecting it at all angles. In fact, I was able to enter the mine by one tunnel and exit by another tunnel! While underground, I located a large, non-flooded vertical shaft with an impressive wooden headframe above it. There was also a lot of extensive underground tunneling. Outside, the quarry floor itself was pierced with vertical shafts that led to lower levels. Unfortunately, most of these shafts were all flooded with very deep water. At the end of this video, I discovered an unmapped, downward-sloping tunnel near the Manhattan Mine. This tunnel had water in it not too long ago and there were many hoof prints in it, so it seemed to be a watering hole for wild burros who actually enter the mine and walk down the sloping tunnel to where the water would be. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

HISTORY THAT COULDNT BE ADDED INTO MY VIDEO BECAUSE A WOOSTER ATE MY MIC! *O* The Mining District also known as Bergslagen is located in the central parts of Sweden. Findings have led historians to believe the special red earth in this region of Sweden was being used to "produce" Iron as early as in the 8th century. However not untill in the 17th century when Mårten Finne discovered the copper deposit in the Ljusnarsbergs field (which is now the centre of the town of Kopparberg) did large-scale mining begin. The mining era continued untill 1975 and included not only copper, but also metals such as silver, zinc and lead. Since the town of Kopparberg had a blossoming community thanks to the mining fields, it is now a dying community and plans are being made to re-open the mines within 4 years. This is not only a beacon of hope for the community but, it brings a memory back to life. The memory of the mining district that strongly helped establish the country of Sweden a 1000 years ago.

Black Widow Mine Exploration: Ghost Caught on Tape?
 
08:52
We recently undertook an arduous, mountainous hike to the remote, abandoned Black Widow Mine where we discovered many interesting things including a possible ghost that we inadvertently caught on tape. Many thanks to YouTuber Max Wheeler for pointing out this strange anomaly in the video. The Black Widow Mine is a massive mine with over 7000 feet of workings spread out through six complicated levels. The mine is accessed via two tunnel entrances. One entrance is much higher on the mountain than the other one. The upper and lower workings are connected inside the mine by a 300-foot inclined winze. This was an impressive mine, and the strenuous hike to reach it was definitely worth it. Towards the end of the video, we inadvertently caught something on tape that defies explanation. A possible ghost sighting? You be the judge. We also explored the mining camp located outside the upper tunnel entrance. Interesting, unusual things you will see in this video besides the "ghost" include an intact, antique Master Lock from the early 1900s and a hangman's noose (yes, a noose!) strung up deep in the lower workings. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration #Ghosts #HauntedPlaces #Paranormal Activity

Exploring The Disappearing Continental Mine - Part 2 of 2
 
14:54
In the last video, we explored the left side of this abandoned mine. In this video, we cover what we didn’t cover before in the area we initially bypassed on the right. The remainder of the mine (that it was possible to explore) is not as large as the area covered in the first video, but I believe it is potentially more interesting given such things as the diversity of mine features, the cool formations and the underground workshop. I was thinking that this side might be less sketchy (as my memory of this mine was that it wasn’t particularly bad), but as I was editing the video, that series of false floors convinced me otherwise. The pits, winzes and series of false floors on this side of the mine also made me realize that the miners had not only hollowed out the hill above the haulage adit, but also the area below. It must have been a thick deposit of tungsten! I was a tad optimistic about the ability of my truck to handle the rough road up to this site and had a sharp rock slam a nice hole into the exhaust (as well as bashing the whole thing loose). It sounded like I was driving a Ferrari for the rest of the trip… Fortunately, there is a good mechanic close to our California base of operations. I’m sure glad I didn’t rip out the oil pan because this part of Nevada is a LONG way from anything and an even longer way from home. Also, when one is out in an area that is only accessible by a 4WD or rugged, high-clearance vehicle, it isn’t like one can just call AAA for a quick tow. The logistics of getting out become much more complicated. Presumably, you’d have to hunt down some local with a powerful 4WD and give him a wad of cash to haul you out to somewhere where AAA would be willing - or able - to go. The whole process is made even more complicated, of course, by the fact that mobile phone service is difficult to come by in many of the remote areas of Nevada (such as this one). ***** 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 click here for the 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 niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We have fun 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

300 Million Year Old "Chariot Wheel" Found Deep In Mine?
 
03:32
Support Us On Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/MysteryHistory We Are Also On Steemit: https://steemit.com/@mysteryhistory Throughout the ages, countless reports of unexplained and baffling discoveries have been reportedly made deep within the mines of Earth. Regardless of the type of mine, or indeed its depth, it seems that these peculiar stories continue to surface, and usually only by word of mouth. Often, attached to these fascinating tales, you will find stories of these artefacts being seized, destroyed, or simply reburied. We are often confronted with an apparent cover-up, vast resources and man power being harnessed to hide these finds from the world. The motives for choosing to conceal such artefacts from the world, could indeed be endless. Though regardless of motive, we feel it is imperative that we continue to expose these stories to the earth, if we have compelling witnesses, and unmistakable evidence of a coverup, regardless of physically remaining evidence, we eel by conveying this said knowledge, we are improving all of our chances regarding their discovery. Thankfully, on the rare occasion, something will be found by a particular person, a person aware of this suppression facts, and mr Kasatkin’s is one of them. Deep beneath the city of Donetsk, within the Rostov region of Russia, a large foundation of sandstone can be found, something known as rock shield of Carboniferous age, it is about 360 to 300 million years ago, and is lined with distributions of coking coals that are also of around the same age. Astonishingly, mr Kasatkin has discovered upon the rook of this shaft of coal, an imprint of a chariot wheel, an imprint, undoubtedly made before the rock had formed around it, he also later discovered another imprint a small distance further along the shaft. It must be noted that these imprints have remained buried deep within these seams of rock for many millions of years, if a scientific analysis could have been undertaken upon this artefact, it could have shook our understandings of world history, just like so many other artefacts we have been made aware of, all but a few now stolen from the public domain. Upon realising the implications of his discovery mr Kasatkin, an extremely experienced foreman in Ventilation and Safety Engineering, specializing in Seismic Prognosis, thankfully took several photographs of his miraculous and now concealed discovery, before officially reporting it, and requesting a scientific evaluation. When his boss notified the owners of the mine, in the hopes of getting an analysis of the artefacts, with an attempt to preserve it, to his bosses surprise, they demanded he continued the work through the shaft, so that it could be subsequently flooded, which is unfortunately what has occurred, making further exploration of the sites impossible. mr Kasatkin told greaterancestors.com, The “wheel” was printed on sandstone upon the roof of the coal seam. drifters tried to “cut it away after finding out about the owner’s reluctance to preserve such a wonderful discovery, they used pick axes and sledge hammers to try to extract it and take it to the surface, but sandstone was so strong that having been afraid of damaging the print, they left it in place. At present, the mine has been officially closed since 2009 and access to the “object” is impossible, the equipment is dismantled and the layers are already flooded. He stated that he has investigated further, regarding the Western mine’s history with the fellow miners there, and was able to confirm the existence if the other print within that mine. it had been damaged by blast-hole driving, and was little mentioned, though it was indeed there. he was sometimes in this cut he said, and got to take a good look at it. He says that he was surprised, but is also, somewhat afraid to admit that these “objects” are of artificial origin. We on the other hand are excited by such a premise, and will keep you posted any further developments regarding the mine.

Ellison’s Cave, USA - 0:08 Ellison's Cave is a pit cave located on Pigeon Mountain in the Appalachian Plateaus of Northwest Georgia. It is the 12th deepest cave in the United States and features the deepest, unobstructed underground pitch in the continental US named Fantastic Pit. 9. Ice Cave, Russia - 0:43 This incredible cave near the Mutnovsky Volcano in Russia is the result of volcanic fed hot springs running through ice to create an ice cave that has a very shallow roof allowing sunlight to pass through. This cave was discovered by accident in 2012 and is nearly 980 ft. long. 8. Cave of the Swallows, Mexico - 1:12 The Cave of the Swallows is an open air pit cave in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. The mouth of the cave is 160 by 203 feet wide further widening to a room approximately 994 by 442 ft wide.[2] The floor of the cave is a 1214 ft free fall drop from the top making it the largest known cave shaft in the world, the second deepest pit in Mexico and perhaps the 11th deepest in the world. 7. Waitomo Glowworm Cave, New Zealand - 1:45 The Waitomo Glowworm Caves on the North Island of New Zealand is known for it’s spectacular glowworms. This species of glowworms is found exclusively in New Zealand and are the size of an average mosquito. If you are so keen to see the glow worms you can join an organized boat tour that goes right underneath them. 6. Phraya Nakhon Cave, Thailand - 2:15 Phraya Nakhon Cave in Thailand is located 4 hours south of Bangkok. It’s a fairly accessible cave to the public as it is only a 30 minute sweaty hike to reach the cave. King Chulalongkorn built the Kuha Karuhas pavilion inside the cave in 1890, when he fell in love with the beauty of the cave during his visit. If you want there is a Boat that will drop you off in some murky water at the entrance of the cave for 300 Baht but is only operational in good weather conditions. 5. Antelope Canyon, USA - 2:45 Antelope Canyon is primarily a water eroded rock canyon located near the city of Page, in the northern part of the state of Arizona Antelope Canyon is a known for its smooth, wavy walls of sandstone, caused mainly by flash flooding and rain 4. Batu Caves, Malaysia - 3:24 The Batu Caves contain a Buddhist temple created on the edge of a cliff in Myanmar, and is the unassuming entrance to Kyaut Sae Cave. Legend has it, that in the 13th century the massive cave was originally used as a place of hiding for locals who wanted to hide from the Mongols. 3. Fingal’s Cave, Scotland - 3:43 Fingal’s Cave, located in on an uninhabited island called Staffa, is 72 feet tall and 270 feet deep. This sea cave a one of a kind with visually astonishing hexagonal columns made of basalt. It was formed by the cooling on the upper and lower surfaces of the solidified lava which resulted in contraction and fracturing. 2. Son Doong Cave, Vietnam - 4:33 Son Doong Cave in Vietnam is the largest cave discovered on earth. It was discovered in 1991 by a local man but not fully explored until 2009. Son Doong Cave has a max depth of 490 feet and max length of 30,000 feet. It was created by a large vertical fault in the limestone that was flooded by river water which carved it’s way deep under the surface for millions of years. Having limestone walls that run in a nearly in a straight line allows for much greater stability, which is what has allowed this cave to get so big. 1. Naica Mine, Mexico - 5:23 This incredible cave was accidentally found by the Naica mining company as they were drilling deep for silver, lead and zinc. They noticed a large crystal which appeared to be made of ice but considering the temperature inside the cave is 136 Fahrenheit or 58 degrees Celsius they knew immediately it was a large rare crystal growth.
