San Diego Gold Mines - http://www.california-gold-rush-miner.us San Diego Gold Mines - Julian Gold Mines: Southwest prospectors and miners Association members learn about the unique characteristics of hard rock gold mines in the Julian California area. Although nowhere near as productive as a Northern California, Southern California still has many gold producing areas. Mostly, the Golden Southern California is much finer than gold found in Arizona for Northern California. Just like diamonds, because of the rarity of the larger sizes both large diamonds and large gold nuggets command off hi premium over the basic price. With today's gold price more and more people are looking into weekend gold prospecting throughout San Diego County. When gold prospecting, you need good equipment to save time & help in finding gold nuggets by removing trash.

Regan Gold Mine - Oregon - 2016
 
10:43
From 1902 to 1941, the Regan Mine was a lucrative operation, mostly run by small miners. In 1939, the mine was reportedly bought by the Paymaster Mining Company for over $200,000, but was soon shut down due to the War Act. The Regan mine is massive and its workings are relatively untouched. Currently, there is an abundance of processing equipment on the claim, including a crusher, a shaker, and a smelter. There is also a year round supply of water on the claim. This claim is perfect for small operations, which could grow into larger operations as the veins and deposits are further explored.

Exploring Active Mines: Alleghany's Sixteen to One Mine
 
31:36
Located in the California mountain town of Alleghany, the Sixteen to One Mine is now the oldest gold mining corporation in the United States and with more than 26 miles of underground workings, it is a seriously impressive operation! This remarkably rich lode gold mine was located in 1896 by a man named Thomas Bradbury in his backyard (we should all be so lucky). More than a million ounces of gold have been extracted from the Sixteen to One Mine over the course of its existence (an amount worth well over a billion US dollars at current gold prices) and there is still much more gold inside of the mine waiting to be found... The gold inside of the Sixteen to One Mine does not follow a set pattern and is instead found in rich pockets randomly scattered across the quartz vein that the mine follows. Some of the pockets of gold are as small as an ounce or two and others contain tens of thousands of ounces of gold. The very existence of the Sixteen to One Mine revolves around locating these pockets of gold. The lower levels of the mine are presently flooded, but they are being dewatered at this time as the Sixteen to One Mine has two new gold detectors with proven successes in identifying gold in quartz previously undetected with older models. The potential of this new technology has inspired the company to pay the price of dewatering and rehabilitating the lower levels of the mine in order to pursue the gold they know is down there. No one has walked inside of the 3000 level since 1939 and so one can only imagine what might be found down there now. At present rates of pumping, the water in the lower levels of the mine is dropping at the rate of about 100 feet per month and access to the 3000 level may be restored by as soon as June of 2018. On this visit, we entered through the 800 Crosscut and first proceeded to the 49 Winze. Following this, we then headed deeper inside of the mine before dropping down through multiple levels to an incredible cavern that the miners carved out inside of the Sixteen to One Mine - the company calls this “The Ballroom” for its immense size and acoustics… For more information on the Sixteen to One Mine or even to buy physical gold or stock shares from the company, one can visit their website at: http://www.origsix.com/ ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

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.

Julian Gold Mining - Gold Prospecting
 
01:51
Julian Gold Mining - http://www.california-gold-rush-miner.us Julian Gold Mining - Gold Prospecting: Currently, Julian California is better known for its apple pies than it is for Gold mining. But, gold is what created the town of Julian and there are a number of active mines in the area. Gold in this area is practically all derived from hard rock mining. Plus, most of the gold in the San Diego area is very fine gold. Personally, I've not heard of any body finding any gold nuggets in San Diego County. Your best bet if prospecting near old mines, is to check the tailing piles by raking them down and then going over them with a metal detector or running them through a gold dry-washer. With today's gold price more and more people are looking into weekend gold prospecting throughout San Diego County. When gold prospecting, you need good equipment to save time & help in finding gold nuggets by removing trash.

Roman Coins Detectorists spend most of their time searching fields and coming up empty, but occasionally they’ll find something that makes it all worthwhile. This is what happened to Dave Crisp, a hospital administrator. In 2010, he made an amazing discovery in a field near Frome, in the county of Somerset in England. Expecting to find the usual discarded metal objects, he started digging on a spot where his detector had signalled a strong reading, and to his surprise, he uncovered a large pot that contained a hoard of Roman coins. In total there were over 52,000 of them! 766 bore an image of Marcus Aurelius Carausius, who ruled over Britain between 286 and 293 AD. As the first leader to strike coins in the country, this was a particularly important find- one that was valued at over 1 million dollars. The coins were sent to the British museum where they were cleaned by archaeologists and put on display. 9. The Mojave Nugget While you may think that the gold in the California hills is long gone, this story shows that it’s still out there for those who look hard enough. In 1977, Ty Paulsen was using his metal detector in the Mojave Desert in Southern California when he discovered something people always dream of- a huge golden nugget. It turned out to be one of the largest ever found by a metal detector in the US, and weighed a massive 4.5 kg! Known as the Mojave Nugget, it was worth a whopping $200,000, and can now be seen on display at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. Unsurprisingly, Paulsen has never revealed the exact location where found the nugget, but it’s thought to have been from the Stringer Mining District- an area that has been linked with large quantities of gold discovery over the years. Who knows, if you get out searching you might make the next big discovery there yourself! 8. Bullet in Dallas, Texas It’s not just valuable treasure in monetary terms that can be found with a metal detector, as Richard H. Lester discovered in 1974. He was in Dallas, Texas, searching for hits on Dealey Plaza when he found a bullet fragment. Now, this may not seem too out of the ordinary in the US, but this location just so happened to be about 500 yards away from the Texas School Book Depository, the location thought to have been used by Lee Harvey Oswald when he shot JFK. Lester kept the fragment for a number of years, but he handed it over to the FBI in 1976 as a part of ongoing investigations . They conducted tests on it, which they published the following year, and while the bullet had the same 4 grooves and right hand twist pattern as Oswald’s Mannlicher-Carcano, the lands were spaced further apart than they should have been- meaning it was unlikely from his gun. No-one suggested at the time that it could have been from a second gunman, but from a day out with his metal detector, Lester found himself in the middle of the greatest conspiracy ever. 7. Spanish Gold Chalice You don’t have to be an expert to make an amazing find, all you need is commitment and hard work. Mike DeMar took a job as a diver with a treasure hunting firm when he was 20 years old. Sounds like a great job! They were searching the Florida Keys for treasure from a sunken Spanish ship, the Santa Margarita, that had sunk over 400 years ago. The efforts of the company, Blue Water Ventures, had been on-going since 1980, and they had just begun looking at a new site. Within a couple of months of working there, DeMar was underwater and his metal detector pinged. He dug a bit with his hands and found what initially seemed like a piece of rock, but on closer inspection turned out to be a Golden Chalice. The ornate object, thought to be from around the time of the ship, at least 400 years old, was subsequently valued at over $1 million dollars- more than enough to warrant the rest of the day off and a toast of champagne with his new colleagues. The ship had sunk in a storm that scattered the debris in one direction, but another storm hit and scattered it all across the seabed. Following this discovery, Blue Water Ventures were confident that they’d make further finds- although as of yet they haven’t announced anything quite like the chalice.

The first significant gold rush in the United States was in Cabarrus County, North Carolina (east of Charlotte), in 1799 at today's Reed's Gold Mine. Thirty years later, in 1829, the Georgia Gold Rush in the southern Appalachians occurred. It was followed by the California Gold Rush of 1848–55 in the Sierra Nevada, which captured the popular imagination.

Gold Mining: "South Dakota Saga" (1941) Homestake Mining Company 33min
 
32:39
"Gold mining and the life of gold miners in South Dakota, as seen by the mining company." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_mining Gold mining is the removal of gold from the ground. There are several techniques and processes by which gold may be extracted from the earth. Placer mining Panning Gold panning is mostly a manual technique of separating gold from other materials. Wide, shallow pans are filled with sand and gravel that may contain gold. The pan is submerged in water and shaken, sorting the gold from the gravel and other material. As gold is much denser than rock, it quickly settles to the bottom of the pan. The panning material is usually removed from stream beds, often at the inside turn in the stream, or from the bedrock shelf of the stream, where the density of gold allows it to concentrate, a type called placer deposits. Gold panning is the easiest technique for searching for gold, but is not commercially viable for extracting gold from large deposits, except where labor costs are very low or gold traces are substantial. Panning is often marketed as a tourist attraction on former gold fields. Before large production methods are used, a new source must be identified and panning is useful to identify placer gold deposits to be evaluated for commercial viability. Sluicing Using a sluice box to extract gold from placer deposits has long been a common practice in prospecting and small scale mining. A sluice box is essentially a man made channel with riffles set in the bottom. The riffles are designed to create dead zones in the current to allow gold to drop out of suspension. The box is placed in the stream to channel water flow. Gold bearing material is placed at the top of the box. The material is carried by the current through the box where gold and other dense material settles out behind the riffles. Less dense material flows out of the box as tailings. Larger commercial placer mining operations employ screening plants, or trommels, to remove the larger alluvial materials such as boulders and gravel, before concentrating the remainder in a sluice box or jig plant. These operations typically include diesel powered, earth moving equipment, including excavators, bulldozers, wheel loaders, and rock trucks. Dredging Although this method has largely been replaced by modern methods, some dredging is done by small scale miners using suction dredges... Gold ore processing In placer mines, the gold is recovered by gravity separation. For hard rock mining, other methods are usually used. Cyanide process Cyanide extraction of gold may be used in areas where fine gold bearing rocks are found. Sodium cyanide solution is mixed with finely ground rock that is proven to contain gold or silver, and is then separated from the ground rock as gold cyanide or silver cyanide solution. Zinc is to precipitate out residual zinc as well as the silver and gold metals. The zinc is removed with sulfuric acid, leaving a silver or gold sludge that is generally smelted into an ingot then shipped to a metals refinery for final processing into 99.9999% pure metals. Advancements in the 1970s have seen activated carbon used in extracting gold from the leach solution. The gold is absorbed into the porous matrix of the carbon. Activated carbon has so much internal surface area,[5] that fifteen grams (half an ounce) has the equivalent surface area of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (18,100 square metres (195,000 sq ft)). The gold can be removed from the carbon by using a strong solution of caustic soda and cyanide, a process known as elution. Gold is then plated out onto steel wool through electrowinning. Gold specific resins can also be used in place of activated carbon, or where selective separation of gold from copper or other dissolved metals is required. The cyanide technique is crude and is commonly used in low grade gold and silver ore processing. There are many environmental hazards associated with this extraction method in addition to the high toxicity of the cyanide itself. An acute example was demonstrated in the 2000 Baia Mare cyanide spill environmental disaster when a break in a waste pond dam gold mine reprocessing facility near Baia Mare in northern Romania released approximately 100,000 cubic metres (3,500,000 cu ft) of waste water contaminated with heavy metal sludge and up to 120 long tons (122 t) of cyanide into the Tisza River...

The battle over mining for gold in Marmato
 
14:00
The town of Marmato, in Central Colombia, sits on top a mountain of gold. Its people have been living off of it for centuries, mining the precious metal through mostly small scale, artisanal operations. But as the country is increasingly relying on its mineral resources to fuel the economy, multinational mining companies have set their sights on places like Marmato to install open air mines that would literally swallow the landscape. According to some estimates, it would take about 20 years to extract all the gold from the mountain, wiping out the town and its 10,000 inhabitants in the process. The imminence of this news weighs heavily on the people of Marmato, who are organizing to fight back and prevent this from happening. Correspondent Toby Muse traveled to the Colombian Andes Mountains to report on this story for Americas Now.

Consolidated Gold Mine, Dahlonega, Georgia.
 
08:41
In about 1880, hard rock was reached on what is now called the Consolidated Gold Mine Property. After several years of testing by Capt. Ingersoll, Antonio, and others it was then determined what was providing the gold to the outside world, not veins of gold but veins of quartz containing gold. Solid rock is layered by weight when still in a molten state. The heavier metals like gold and iron stayed with the heaviest rock of the area- quartz. Most quartz veins containing gold run an average of 2-3 inches thick, if that big. The largest can be at around 8" thick. On the Dahlonega side of the mountain a man named Knight found an area where several extremely large veins were running together forming one giant vein. One so huge that it wasn't measured in inches but in feet- 22ft. thick -which is still today one of the largest veins of quartz discovered in the world containing gold. Soon the huge vein system was found to be going down-hill at a 45 degree angle heading deeper underground and below the water table. After a brief hiatus, mining of the Knight or "Glory Hole" vein continued when a group of northern investors bought up 7,000 acres of land around the discovery site, and all the smaller mines with it, forming the Dahlonega Consolidated Gold Mining Co. in 1895. Out of business in 1906, the Consolidated has been reported to be the very first attempt at systematic, deep underground mining in the east and quickly became a legend even in its own time. Whatever the reason: price of gold too low; being below the water-table the gold stuck inside the iron making it too expensive to mine; material not produced fast enough for the 120-stamp mill; or scamming among the investors, the tunnel system was totally abandoned for 75 years until new life was instilled by a coal mining family from Kentucky wishing to change occupations after several generations. Today the mine runs under a Wal-Mart just outside of downtown Dahlonega. The town still retains a frontier feel and many old buildings remain standing from as far back as the 1830s. Dahlonega, Georgia was the site of the 1839 gold rush, the first gold rush in the United States. The gold rush prompted the bitter Cherokee removal and prepared the masses for the California gold rush of '49. Dahlonega became a boom town on the edge of civilized Georgia land overnight, and the creation of the mint in Dahlonega led to the eventual creation of North Georgia Agricultural College, now North Georgia College and State University, the premier military college of Georgia.

Buca Della Vena Mine – Part 2: Discovered Underground Mine Train!
 
21:47
Sure, we’ve come across ore carts and trammers before while exploring at abandoned mines. However, finding an intact underground mine train parked with the ore carts still hooked up to the trammer (what miners call the electric locomotive) is something that I have never seen before or since. I’ll give away some of the secrets of the upcoming videos by saying that there is a second part to this train just a short distance farther down the track. I wonder if the operator of the trammer/locomotive felt a twinge of sadness when it was parked underground for the last time? I mentioned in the description and comments of the last video that I would talk more about the history and geology of the abandoned mine in this description. The below is a translation from Italian to English and the translation is not perfect. However, it conveys the relevant information. So, quoting directly, here you go.. “The Buca della Vena Mine (formerly Stazzema Mine) was part of the 15th-16th century Vene Ferralis, although it is believed that works were held there already during the Medicean period. Work restarted between 1850 and 1860, and in 1938 the Pignone of Florence company began excavating. Since 1957, the SIMA company (subsidiary of EDEM) continued to work regularly in the tunnel searching mixed mineral barite-pyrite until 1990. The field is described as a mineral body almost unique with barite, pyrite and iron oxides of good quality. It is oriented NNE/SSW, in the contact zone between shale Unit Fornovolasco, white dolomite and grezzoni. Considerable scientific interest was aroused by the discovery of rare or unique in the world mineralogical species. Minerals mainly extracted are: - barite used for chemicals, pharmaceuticals, petroleum industry and as nuclear power plants insulation - pyrite for chemicals and iron and steel - iron oxides for steel products” Although the mine being explored in this video apparently dates back to the Medicean period, I passed ancient workings while pushing up the canyon walls that date back to the Romans and even the Etruscans. In other words, the iron ore deposits here have not exactly been a secret for thousands of years. The section of the Buca della Vena Mine featured in this video hosted very dark rock and huge open chambers. So, even with multiple lights, it was a struggle to fully illuminate it. While there are certainly some even more impressive pillars and massive chambers to come, the rock is lighter and so that should not be much of an issue going forward. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

Emma Gold Mine For Sale - Montana - 2016
 
05:34
The Emma mine is a remote gold mine, in the heart of the Rochester mining district. It was one of the largest mines in the district, milling not only their own ore, but ore from surrounding mines as well. The Emma has a long mining history, starting in 1888 when it first reported production. It was worked by several large mining companies into the 1930s. Today the site has been reclaimed, but still maintains the structures and history. There are six incline shafts that have been gated, allowing for easy access for claim owners. There is a milling site with a massive ore bin and tipple, mill foundations, and remnants of shaker tables. There is more than 50,000 tons of ore in the tailings showing quartz, galena, pyrite, iron, and gold, and the workings of the mine are estimated to be over 5000 feet. The Emma is an extremely valuable, one of a kind gold mine.

Another Piece Of (The) Rose Quartz
 
18:19
This one keeps pulling us back… And there’s a simple reason for that. Every time we go, we find something new. This whole complex is just covered in adits. Most of them are inaccessible, but the sheer number of them is staggering. My exploring buddy (his channel is Adit Addicts) did a separate trip here at the start of winter and discovered yet another adit not far from the one in this video. It took some work to squeeze into and, once inside, did not extend back far, but, like the adit shown in this video, seemed to connect to other levels below. There were also an interesting series of stulls in the adit he located. He has not posted that video yet, but below are a couple from my early exploring days of other parts of the Rose Quartz Complex (I caution you that the video quality is nowhere near as good as that allowed by the gear I have now, but you’ll get the idea if you’re curious). This adit is located farther down the creek: https://bit.ly/2GebRId This inaccessible adit is up on the ridge: https://bit.ly/2BqOQOl Likely of more interest, the 1918 Mines & Mineral Resources of Plumas County from the California State Mining Bureau has the following on the Rose Quartz Mining Company: “This property consists of nine claims, names unknown, none of which are patented. There is a total of 180 acres with a length along the lode of 3000'. High lava-capped peaks and deep V-shaped canyons mark the surface. The main vein (No. 1) is developed by a 178' crosscut adit to the vein, cutting it 150' below the outcrop, and 60' driven along the vein. There is also a winze on the vein extending 30' below the tunnel level. The No. 2 vein is developed by a 60' shaft with a 50' crosscut from the bottom, and the Rose vein by a 259' crosscut adit, meeting the vein 100' below its outcrop, with 95' driven on the vein. Drilling is done by hand. The deposit consists of quartz veins evidently following a siliceous porphyry dike in slates. The workings are in the decomposed dike and no crosscuts have been run to true walls. Nos. 1 and 2 veins, parallel and 85' apart, are made up of quartz and decomposed porphyry containing free gold, auriferous arsenopyrite and galena. The foot-wall of No. 1 vein is not determined, the hanging wall is slate. It varies in width from 10' to 15'; strikes N. 7° E. dips 70° E., and has a proven length on the surface of 1000'. No 2 vein has slate walls, is 50' in width, strikes N. 10° E., and dips east. The Rose vein is a quartz vein in slates with a filling of rose quartz. It varies from 3' to 6' in width, with an average of 4' strikes north and dips east. It carries free gold and a very little galena and arsenopyrite. No. 1 vein averages $9; No. 2, where 15' wide, runs $4.80 a ton; where 30' wide, it runs $3.50. The Rose mine is a very good-looking prospect, and from panning of ore appears to be well worthy of extended development. Final judgment can not be passed until the veins are crosscut and developed at deeper levels. Masses of arsenopyrite are found, which can be burned and show a large amount of gold. Free gold also occurs in the center of hard, glassy looking quartz, not associated with sulphides nor a product of oxidation. Galena in appreciable quantities is associated with the arsenopyrite. There are on the property a blacksmith shop and cabins; a 5-stamp Hendy mill, rock breaker and concentrator to be run by a distillate engine are being installed. A tramway will be installed from the mouth of tunnel No. 1 to the mill, a distance of 300'. Labor cost from $3 to $3.50 per day in 1914. Transportation 1 cent per pound from Quincy.” Obviously, times have changed! However, the remains of much of the equipment described in 1918 can still be seen (as you saw in this video). There is more closer to the top of the ridge as well. ***** 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. I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines

California Gold Mine "For Sale" Cherry Hill Mine
 
04:57
There’s Gold In Them Hills! The Right Time for an Informed Investor! CALIFORNIA GOLD MINE “ For Sale “ ___Cherry Hill Mine___ The Cherry Hill Mine: Established in 1892, a formerly producing, small underground high-grade gold mine. One of the benefits of purchasing a past-producing mine is that the cost of moving into production is much lower than the cost of bringing a mine from the exploration phase to the production phase. Location: When thinking of mines you tend to visualize a hard-to-reach, remote, backcountry hillsides that require vast amounts of money to ensure adequate infrastructure. That isn’t the case with Cherry Hill. Because Cherry Hill is a formerly producing mine, all the infrastructure is already there. That means you have a leg up on some of the costs involved with getting the mine up and running. The mine is just a short ride from the town of Yreka, California, down a state-operated, paved road that turns into a well-maintained gravel road. It's easy to get to and has great access to the I-5, a major artery running north-south along the West Coast. It also means that when you do ramp up production, the heavy-duty trucks won't have much of an issue getting the ore from the mine to the mill. Historical Geological Reports: 1892 0.97 oz Au/ton with Ore running at $20.00 Au/ton (Yreka Journal, 11/16/1892). In 1892 100 tons milled by Selby avg. $61.00/ton (3oz Au equivalent/ton) (Yreka Journal 12/7/1892). On July 24th 1900 the mill run produced $5,300. (254.4 oz Au; 10.7 oz/day; 10 tons/day at 1 oz Au/ton Mining and Scientific Press 7/14/1900). 2003 Core Drilling produced 25' of 1.024 oz Au/ton - 30' of 4.758 oz Au/ton and 39.5 oz Ag/ton. Historical Resource Estimate by R. L Hill, CA Reg.Geologist #3386, Jan 5, 2009. Primary Target - Queen Vein WQ #3 and WQ #4 levels at 8889 yrds³ = 20,000 short tons at 1 opt at $1200 worth $24,000,000. Level 2 - WQ #4 to Camp Level at 9778 yrds³ = 22,000 short tons at 1 opt at $1,200 worth $26,400,000. Camp Level to Long Tunnel Adit approx 300,000 oz...previous owner estimation. 42,000 tons blocked out - based on established mine plan. 43-101 independent Technical Report completed May 22nd, 2012. Between 2011 - 2013 approx $2.6 million spent on exploration and development mining (all figures verified by audit). Low cost producer - estimated cost per oz Au at $400. Metallurgy testing (Norris Labs of Montana) indicates 95% recoveries for gold and 87% for silver. 80% of recoverable ore from gravity. Eight known adits on 7 unpatented lode claims situated on 94.6 Acres. Multiple assays completed with underground surveys. Defining a resource is a big expense for exploration companies, costing millions of dollars to complete. In purchasing a previously producing mine, You will have forgone the costly resource definition process because, “this was all done, we know what's here, so just go mine it!” Price $1,295,000 - Will consider all reasonable offers For the opportunity to discuss the mines in further detail, please contact: Philip Physioc [email protected] or (702) 822-0237

Gold placer mining equipment - Gold drywasher
 
01:35
Gold placer mining equipment - http://www.california-gold-rush-miner.us Gold placer mining equipment is quite varied, but here in Southern California and Arizona the most popular gold placter mining equipment is hands-down, the gold dry-washer! The gold dry-washer comes in various sizes as well as three main modes of operation. First, and most popular is the gas leaf blower powered model. Second, would be the electric battery powered puffer type model. Lastly, you have the hand powered puffer type gold dry-washer. If you use a gold dry-washer as your main type of plaster mining equipment, and you go to an area where gold has been found before, chances are very good that you will also be able to find at least some fine gold. Just like diamonds, because of the rarity of the larger sizes both large diamonds and large gold nuggets command off hi premium over the basic price. So, when people invest in natural gold nuggets they not only get the benefit of the appreciation of the base metal but also the rarity factor appreciation to collectors throughout the world. With today's gold price more and more people are looking into weekend gold prospecting throughout San Diego County. When gold prospecting, you need good equipment to save time & help in finding gold nuggets by removing trash.

The Culverwell Mine -Delamar District, Lincoln County, Nevada
 
08:40
The Culverwell Mineral property is an established gold and silver mine located in Lincoln County, Nevada. The mine has limited documentation of production but shows average values of 1.44 oz/T AU and 2.31 oz/T AG. The mine was located by Mr. Charles Culverwell and Mr. William Culverwell in 1899. The mine was re-located by two miners in the resurgence of 1932 and documented production of 5 tons of ore containing 7.2 ounces of gold and 11.5 ounces of Silver. Waste Dumps at the mine were sampled and showed calcite, quartz, pyrites, raw gold, some silver and iron with likely tungsten and or molybdenum. The accessible workings in the mine consist of a haulage tunnel with some short offshoots and a stoped room where a gold ore body appears to have impacted a dike. There is a small headframe a winze of approximately 30’. At the bottom of this winze, there is an apparent drift cutting back on the same ore deposit as above. The lower level was not mapped or examined but it said to intersect with the workings of the upper two adits through a series of raises and other drifts. This information is unverified. In addition to the lower levels, also noted was a potential raise near the headframe, the passageway was extremely narrow and was likely an ore chute at one time, however, it is possible to attempt access to upper levels through this raise. The mine is noted for production of wire gold in iron and on quartz. Surveyors did not witness any wire gold, however, surveyors reported multiple instances of small gold deposition in the short offshoots of the haulage tunnel and some high-grade gold samples were removed from the main working room/stope. 28 lbs. of high-grade gold ores were sent for assay and returned a value of 22.9 oz/T in AU with only trace silver. This indicates that the gold deposits, when kept in a pure form have very little silver or other contaminates and could be crushed and washed as a way of processing with no chemicals needed. It also indicates that working specifically on the veins which are showing gold deposition within the mine would be the most lucrative plan for a small miner or mining company.

QUARTZ VEIN GOLD ORE SPECIMEN ~ FROM GOLD MINE
 
01:31
This specimen was taken out of the Gold Road Mine close to Oatman Arizona. A guy who formally worked there sold me this at his moving / estate sale earlier today. He said the process the gold mine uses is crushing the ore to powder and leeching the gold with cyanide. I'll try to get up a few more specimen videos from the lot of rocks I bought from him today. One is a nice silver ore specimen, another zinc, veszelyite, quartz crystal formation, and a few others. I'll be learning gold prospecting and hopefully will have some time to make a few how to videos, documentary, video clips, etc. Peace, Mark Allen

AND I THOUGHT A 20th CENTURY CANADIAN 2,OOO OPT DIAMOND CORE SAMPLE WAS HIGH. A SENIOR INVESTOR SAID HE WOULD NOT BELIEVE IT EVEN IF HE SAW IT, EVEN THOUGH I SHOWED IT TO HIM IN PRINT IN THE HEMLO BOOK BY MATTHEW HART. "LOOK FOR GOLD WHERE GOLD WAS FOUND" CAUTIONED ME ABOUT REPORTING SUCH INFORMATION. WELL THERE ARE NOW 5 OTHER WITNESSES THAT SUCH GRADES ARE NOT RELEGATED TO ONLY HISTORIC LEGENDS FROM THE 1800S GOLD RUSHES. PAGE 117, PARAGRAPH 3: "The gold in the core in the photograph on Frank Lang's wall, from one of his Quebec properties, grades 3677.8 ounces of gold per ton." PARAGRAPH 5: "Considerable amounts of free gold appear in the diamond drill core from Hole No. 29 of D'Or Val Mines Ltd.'s Beacon Property. While it assayed at 3677.8 ounces of gold per ton, this spectacular sample is not considered representative of overall grade." NEXT PAGE: "But you never know what's down there, do you? You never know until you drill. ... In quartz, the gold is in veins. You could miss that by a quarter of millimeter, you'd never find it. How many more are there, that's all I ask. How much gold, just as rich as that, is down there?" - Frank Lang, legendary mining promoter, Hughes-Lang Group, downtown Vancouver BC Canada. Quotes from book: "Golden Giant: Hemlo and the Rush for Canada's Gold" By Matthew Hart, 1945- Published by Douglas & McIntyre, (c) 1985, 176 pages ISBN 0888944675, 9780888944672 http://www.amazon.com/Golden-giant-Hemlo-rush-Canadas/dp/0888944675/ref=sr_11_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1231795050&sr=11-1 My book is signed by Schiralli with message and is a textbook. The 14,827 OPT-Au sample did hand-weigh approx 3 times more, than if solid steel. 16,000 OPT is half gold ore if considering 32,000 ounces per ton (OPT). The president of Constantine Metal Resources Ltd, a geologist, did say specific gravity testing was done on the 16,969 OPT specimen - the results indicated it breached 17,000 OPT but held to a lower figure so as to allow for a small percentage variance by another heavy metal, so the reported gold grade was toned down to 16,969 of oz/ton. Apparently they will never mill those samples.

Having your own energy sources is an important weapon in the world economy. Since 2013, the United States has made important foes of fossil-rich opponents like Saudi Arabia important in extracting shale gas and shale oil from its own soil. The price for a barrel of crude oil fell from 100 to less than $50. The Texan shale producers who survived this price tag are the new heroes of the United States. Under president Donald Trump, the shale cowboys are striving to help Europe to become independent. On research in Trumpland. Original title: Schaliecowboys Schale stone was considered worthless by the oil and gas industry in the past. They passed through on their way to expensive oil and gas that lay deeper. Until a small Texan gas company found a way in the late 1990's to win gas from hard-shelled rock. By making deep boreholes in the stone layers of the soil and injecting a large amount of water and chemicals under high pressure, shale gas and shale oil are won. With this method, later known as fracking, the energy market changed forever. In the meantime, one third of gas and oil production in the United States is a shale.And the bid consumer of energy is not only content to be independent, the country is now even an exporter of energy. OPEC, the organization of (other) oil exporting countries, keeps the oil price on the world market as low as possible, to make American production worthless. But for the moment, the oil countries do not get the shale cowboys on their knees. How does this controversial innovation put the world of energy upside down? Because this new offer of cheap energy really gives us more time to bridge the transition to a sustainable world of solar and wind energy. A few years ago, all experts and analysts went out of the Peak Oil Theory. Namely, the fossil reserves in the world were running out. The shale revolution turned this theory into old dirt in just a few years. Fracking technology opens a whole new reservoir of fossil fuels. The election of President Trump was greeted in Texas with joy and also seen as a recognition for what the shale revolution is going to be. And the future is even more rosy: recent geological research showed that hundreds of billions of dollars of shale oil are still in the so-called Wolf Camp Shale Field in West Texas. Who are the people behind this shale revolution? A portrait of the pioneers and the new Shale millionaires in Texas.

Tauli-Corpuz noted that the previous administration’s decision to create the monument “protected thousands of sacred sites which are central to the preservation of regional Native culture,” and warned President Donald Trump’s December decision to reduce Bears Ears’ area by about 85 percent “exposes thousands of acres of sacred lands and archaeological sites to the threats of desecration, contamination, and permanent destruction.””* Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

The Loneliest Mine In Nevada?
 
04:10
I was going to call this video “The Most Remote Mine In Nevada?” at first because it really is the most remote mine in Nevada that we have come across or heard about. However, then I started thinking about the grizzled old prospector that located the vein that this mine followed and what his life up at the top of the mountain must have been like… It didn’t take long to realize that it would have been a pretty lonely existence. Now, don’t get me wrong, I know some people (especially miners) like that sort of thing. That doesn’t change the fact that this mine is both “lonely” and “remote” though. Getting to this mine requires a 4WD trip for many hours through the deserts of Nevada before one is compelled to stop at the base of the mountain where the mine is located. It then takes a couple of hours of scrambling straight up a mountain that is about as steep as is possible to climb without needing technical equipment. No trail at all, of course. You’ve just got to bushwhack your way up. We were probably the first people to see this abandoned mine in decades and the last one in that shaft before me may have been the miner himself. Imagine the life he would have had up there… He may have had a mule to haul his supplies up the mountain, but given that this seemed like a real shoestring operation, that doesn’t seem entirely likely. Instead, I think the prospector probably hauled the essentials up on his back and used the rocks and wood at the top of the mountain to build his cabin and to provide the infrastructure for the mine. That windlass, for example, seemed like it was made on site. With only the wind for company, I can just see the old prospector leaning against the stone walls of the cabin after a hard day’s work and gazing out over the valley far below. Wondering if tomorrow he’d finally hit a vein that would make him rich and daydreaming about how he’d spend the money. Warm water from the canteen and maybe some beans and bread to eat… I have no idea where the miner got his water from. There isn’t water (that I know of) anywhere around there. We found some discarded bottles of booze near the cabin, which would have mixed things up a bit. Although small, I thought this was an interesting remnant of a long lost age in Nevada’s history. The kicker is that this mine was discovered entirely by accident. We were on our way to another remote abandoned mine when I looked over and noticed this one. It is not even possible to see this mine on Google Earth and I could find no records at all on this mine. So, unfortunately, I cannot share its name or any history on the mine. It is my hope that the geologists in the audience can identify what was being mined here. Oh, and, yeah, I know I used "miner" and "prospector" interchangeably in the above, but I think he was both. ***** 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

LAST GOLD MINE COMPANY draft
 
03:47
California is the Golden State. In 1849, thousands of miners rushed to the Sierra foothills to strike it rich. Today, gold mining is a dying industry, but one gold mining company has managed to stay in business. The Original Sixteen to One Mine has produces more than one million ounces of gold. It’s also the oldest gold mining company in America. "We are standing outside the richest concentration of gold in the world." mine president Mike Miller said. "The Sixteen to One Mine is located in the little town of Alleghany in Sierra County, and it's been operating since 1911. Most of California's Gold originates from a 200-mile quartz vein that spans from Plumas County to Mariposa County. The Sixteen to One Mine has only explored a fraction of it. “We really are the last mining company in the Sierra gold belt.” Miller said. For some strange geological reason, gold particles in the Sierra quartz vein is purer than most other gold deposits. Miller said that means the company doesn't need to use a chemical to process it, and it also fetches a higher price. In the early 1990s, the Sixteen to One Mine hit a rough patch. Gold was hard to fine until miners started using metal detectors. In 1993, they struck a vein that produced $1 million worth of gold in one shift. “It was one of the most exciting days here at the mine.” Miller said. The metal detector idea may have saved the mine, but these days there is another threat to the industry. “California regulators are getting out of hand," Miller explained. Regulations for the mining industry started growing in 1975 with the introduction of the Surface Mine and Reclamation Act. It was created to protect the environment, but over the years Miller said other government agencies littered the mining industry with so many new rules that miners are having a tough time mining. "We need to be regulated but, we need to be fairly regulated and it hasn't been fair." Miller said. He added that more than a dozen different agencies can monitor mining. The Sixteen to One Mine is currently under review from water regulators. Another law could stop production at the mine, but Miller is an optimist. Work at the Sixteen to One Mine is never ending. Only 20 percent of the rock has been explored. In fact, most of the gold veins in the foothills have not been explored. California gold miners have been through than 150 years of struggles. Miller hopes that regulators will take a closer look at those struggles so that California gold miners live on.
