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.

The Lucky Dollar Mine was reported to be located in 1880. The mine has been historically known as the Powderly Mine as far back as 1890 when it was purchased by the T.V. Powderly Company. The mine did not begin to ship ore until 1890. The Lucky Dollar is the most recent naming of the property and is how it is currently referred to by local land management agencies such as the USGS and BLM. The mines are on 40 acres of lode mineral claim (MMC 234563 and MMC 234564) staked and owned (2017) by Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. These claims cover all the workings and mapped trending as it has been documented to date. The mines have shipped paying ores as late as 1964. Work is locally reported to be carried out on the property as late as 1990. The mine shows in good condition from what can be ascertained from the surface. There is an adit located roughly 80 feet below a shaft on the property. Both portals are in rough condition and will need rehabilitation to be safely accessible. There are no known mappings or deposit descriptions of the mine workings. The mines do show substantial amounts of high grade galena on the surface. There is easy access to the mines on county maintained roads on public land. The Lucky Dollar (Powderly) is reported to be primarily a silver mine, however, based on extensive geological reporting, it is thought that the mine is cut on similar deposits as other larger mines in the district such as the Cumberland and the Yellowstone. If this is the case, there is also small amounts of gold in sulfides to be recovered at depth. The Lucky Dollar is a part of the Castle Mountain District, which is basically an ancient volcano. The geological trends associated with volcanic deposits are text book in nature and should provide excellent opportunity for profitable development. The two (2), twenty (20) acre contiguous claims span across all of the workings of the mines. These claims are situated in an east-west orientation. The original Powderly (Lucky Dollar) was situated in a North South orientation. Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. set the claims as show below to cover all of the relevant workings in the area and to verify that all interest in the mine are covered by the claims. The mine portals occur at or around 6400 feet in Elevation. The highest point on the claims is 6800’.

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.

"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, 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...

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!

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.

The Bear and Yuba Rivers played an important part in the California Gold Rush. What happened on these two watersheds is a sample of what occurred throughout the Mother Lode. There were two parts to the gold rush. Part 1: From all over the world, thousands of people rushed to cash in on what they thought was an easy road to great wealth. Part 2: With every river or stream in Northern California panned, the easy placer finds were quickly depleted. The second phase of mining brought well financed companies to the Mother Lode. Millions of dollars were spent on hydraulic mining, hard rock mining and dredging. The effects of these huge industrial mines would change the geology of Northern California. With massive amounts of silt washed downstream, bringing toxic chemicals as well, a century later California is still trying to mitigate the damage.

Millions of years ago, gold was formed in quartsz deposits by hydro-thermal pressure, deep within the earth. Gold remaining in these deposits is called Gold Bearing Quartz or Gold Quartz for short. It is extremely rare, accounting for less than 1/20th of 1% of all gold found annually. Where is it Found? Gold Quartz is found in underground hard rock mines in the same areas where gold nuggets are found. In Alaska, it was first discovered in 1880 in the town Juneau. Regions of Canada, California, and Australia are also well known for Gold Quartz. Grading: Like other precious gemstones, Gold Quartz comes in different grades. Orocal is well know for having the highest quality authentic Gold Quartz with spectacular patterns of Gold. We grade the quartz on a few different factors being how white the stone is. The brightness of the white increases the value along with the vein of gold. The actual pattern and placement of the exquisite gold vein. In fact that vein is very pure around 23% purity. Authenticity: Some Stores sell man-made imitation gold quartz which is fragile and frail. This leads consumers to believe its natural when it clearly is not. When buying from me you know its authentic coming directly from Orocal the source. Nuggets by Grant offers a 110% money back Guarantee card which is called are certificate of Authenticity. THE ORIGINAL SIXTEEN TO ONE MINE, A PUBLICATION OF THE CALIFORNIA DIVISION OF MINES AND GEOLOGY After a long and colorful history, the renowned Sixteen to One gold mine at Alleghany, Sierra County, was shut down in December 1965. This was only after a long but vain attempt to surmount the difficulties that have beset the domestic gold mining industry since World War II. The production of this, one of California's outstanding mines, is estimated to be at least $35 million in gold valued at $35 an ounce. Much of this total was from small but surprisingly rich ore bodies, one of the factors that enabled the mine to operate until recently. The "Sixteen" was the last sustained commercial lode-gold mining operation in California; Alleghany was the last California community where the economy was based chiefly on gold mining. At the present time there are only a few intermittent prospecting operations in the district. Alleghany is in the southwestern portion of Sierra County, about 40 miles northeast of Nevada City by road. It is picturesquely perched on a narrow bench on the steep canyon slope, at the Tertiary-bedrock contact. The district is located in a belt or zone of high-grade gold mineralization that extends from Goodyear's Bar south through Forest, Alleghany, Chips' Flat, Minnesota, to Snow Point and Washington in Nevada County. This zone was studied in days past by such outstanding geologists as J. B. Trask, Waldermar Lindgren, H. W. Turner, and H. G. Ferguson. The total production of the Alleghany district is estimated to be more than $50 million at actual prevailing gold prices. As in many of California's Sierra Nevada gold districts, much of the earlier production was from placer mines; but since the early 1900's, quartz mines have been the principal source of the yellow metal. In addition to the consolidated operations of the Sixteen to One, other important producers of lode gold in the district have been the Brush Creek, Docile, El Dorado, German Bar, Gold Canyon, Irelan, Kate Hardy, Kenton, North Fork, Oriental, Osceola, Plumbago, and Yellowjacket mines. The Ophir, Rainbow Extension, Ted Star, South Fork, Tightner, and Twenty One, all originally separate operations, eventually became part of the Sixteen. Significant amounts of placer gold have been produced at a number of drift mines, the largest of which were the Bald Mountain, Bald Mountain Extension, Highland & Masonic, Live Yankee, and Ruby; and from small hydraulic pits at Chips' Flat and Minnesota.

In this video, I endeavor to spare you, my dear viewers, from having to make the long drive to the middle of nowhere in Nevada (along with the associated costs for fuel and damage to your vehicle on the rough road in). In addition, you are able to avoid the relatively long, hot hike up to this abandoned mine. And, of course, you are also spared from needing to spend any time underground in this sketchy abandoned mine as well. Now don’t get me wrong, we (usually) enjoy this sort of thing, but most probably would not… The mineral potential of this area was first recognized in the mid-1800s and a town and mill sprang up around the areas in the canyon that looked most promising very shortly thereafter. However, no one appears to have gotten rich here and (as with countless mining towns) everything slowly faded away, interspersed with only brief flurries of activity when new discoveries or economic conditions temporarily brought miners out into the hills again. There are surprisingly few records available on this specific mine. Although it is mentioned that work took place here in the 1930s, the only years that we could find production data for were for two years in the 1940s. This was primarily a gold mine, but some silver was extracted here as well. The official production figures were not terribly inspiring, but it seems that contemporary mining companies still poke around this site from time to time – even in those small, fractured stopes underground as could be seen from the surveyor’s flags... Although samples have been taken, to my knowledge, no modern exploratory work has been conducted.

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.

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.

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!

EPISODE 4: A dusk visit to the abandoned Tangier Gold Mine site, which had been active under many companies for decades. We are a group of Abandoned Mine explorers in Nova Scotia, who will be bringing you highlights of our underground adventures. (MORE INFO BELOW) Abandoned Mine Hunting is somewhat of a cross between the hobby of urban exploration, caving (spelunking), and history enthusiast. If this is your kind of thing, be sure to subscribe so you will always be informed of each new episode. IF YOU KNOW OF AN ABANDONED MINE, we'd love to hear from you. Send a private message. We may just come and do an explore and episode featuring your site ! Future episodes will involve everything from the smallest discoveries, to deep underground explores. ** Please be sure to watch in 720p60 HD ** We shoot and publish in 60 frames per second, taking advantage of YouTube's new 720p60 offering. SPECIAL NOTE: While this type of exploration is almost always kilometers back in deep forest, it cannot always be guaranteed that the land we are hiking is public (Crown). These forgotten old mines/claims are almost always over 100 years old. It is also common that most mine workings have some kind of natural cave-in covering their mouth, after nearly a century of erosion. So some explores may involve preparation of clearing that cave-in, and/or dealing with letting spring water (flooding) out of the adits. These facts, along with the inherent danger of abandoned mines, force us to remain anonymous. We are responsible for our own risks & actions (not yours), but be clear we are not promoting this activity. Only showing you what we do. As with any typical Urban Exploration type channel, our faces and commentary will always be masked. If you are seeing an Episode, it means we are already month(s) finished with that site and never going back. The delay is intentional, as nothing shown here will be in realtime. It cannot be stressed enough - abandoned mines can pose a ton of lethal threats. *We are not kids looking for kicks* Keep in mind that our group is made up of responsible adults, each with specific skills, and cross-Canada experience with over 75+ mine walks. Most 10 times larger and deeper than will ever be found in Nova Scotia! Specific research is always done beforehand. Required equipment and backups are a must. While it is indeed possible to safely spelunk an abandoned mine, DO NOT ENTER A MINE without being experienced, or going with an experienced explorer. If you don't know what you're doing, STAY OUT STAY ALIVE is the best policy.

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.

Please give me your opinion on this mystery in the comments section… In the video, I identify this abandoned mine as the Michigan Mine. I did so because this is how it was identified to me by a very knowledgeable local historian (who was herself advised by some of the mining old timers that were born and died in this area). However, after our visit, subsequent research leads me to believe that this may actually be the Nip & Tuck Company [Mine]. The Michigan Mine bordered the Nip & Tuck and the Nip & Tuck actually purchased the Michigan Mine in 1869 in order to obtain control of their ground. So, it is understandable that the names could be confused or even used interchangeably. However, I want to be as precise as possible with this stuff… So, tell me what you think: The Michigan Mine and the Nip & Tuck were both placer claims. However, the Michigan Mine was an adit driven back 3,000 feet into the Gibsonville Ridge. The Nip & Tuck Mine is described as being situated where a tunnel would have been too great of an expense to run and so a shaft was driven down to a depth of 230 feet. The work in this shaft was aided by a large steam engine situated next to the mine shaft. Further, there is a description of an area below the mine being used for washing the gravel being hauled out. Now, tell me that what you see in the video doesn’t look a lot more like the description of the Nip & Tuck instead of the Michigan Mine? There are documents indicating that 40 men worked at the Nip & Tuck Mine in 1870. And, although not a trace remains, there was supposedly an engine house built over the steam engine in addition to an abundance of skip cars and flumes on the site. The Nip & Tuck was apparently a profitable mine as an 1871 issue of Mining & Scientific Press describes the mine as returning a profit of 100% over expenses the previous autumn. The Michigan Mine, at its peak, apparently had 15 men working and even had a blacksmith living on site with his family. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

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.

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.

Great results gold panning the cons from 4 different samples run through the Icon i150 and the rock crushers. Every gold pan showed gold, which is a big surprise for the first three. But not the last gold pan as the last one comes from the Blue Chip Mine and I was expecting over a gram of gold, and it had well over a gram of gold. Jackpot! But the first three samples from the Quartz seams I had prospected earlier in the month all showed gold and will all be claimed by the time this video is released. This video is produced by Dan Hurd, Prospector, Miner, Teacher and YouTuber, as part of his YouTube channel based on educational videos about gold mining, gold panning, prospecting, rock hounding, and mineral collecting. https://www.patreon.com/Danhurd https://www.911metallurgist.com/equipment/

This sales film from Caterpillar highlights the C 785 Off-Highway Truck by showing the machine in action at the company’s Arizona Proving Grounds. C 785s drive on dirt roads. The film shows the 785 from various angles (00:50), giving viewers a look at the truck’s folded core radiator, dual turbo-charged 3512 engine, and rear-mounted six-speed transmission. A man climbs up into a 785 (02:16), and viewers get a look at the cab. The dump bed is lifted. The film then shows the cylinder block of the 3512 engine (03:22); Caterpillar employees build the components of the engine in a production warehouse (likely at the Decatur, IL plant). Several men put the engine together (05:15). A 3512 engine is tested, and a man monitors the data on a computer screen (05:30). The 785 starts driving and the operator steers the heavy mining truck past other 785s. The truck cruises along a dirt road (07:50) hauling a load of rock. The 785 hauls a load of rock up a hill (09:00); it then drives over dirt speed bumps with a full load to test its shocks (09:45). Data from a test drive of the 785 is transferred to a van driving next to the truck, which is a mobile observation center and records the data (12:48). In a laboratory, a man tests various components of the truck (13:48). A 785 climbs up a 22% grade during the testing phase (15:25). A 785 demonstrates breaking as the narrator explains the Caterpillar braking system (16:38). The off-highway truck comes to a hard stop (17:55). The film shows a microprocessor-controlled transmission being tested in the Caterpillar facility (18:18), and then the film concludes with several more shots of the 785 performing various jobs at the company’s proving grounds.

From Anderson Island at Folsom Lake, 19th century suspension cable anchored into solid granite, chiseled square for abutments and granite cut for water pipe. The west side of the North Fork of the American River had all the hard rock mines after the gold rush, but the west side of the river had the North Fork Ditch. Mining companies ran 18" riveted cast iron water pipes across the American river from the NFD, suspended over the river with suspension at the "Narrows".

TADA TV: the TADA family visit Julian, California, where we learn about its history from gold mining to its world famous pies. Theres lots to do in this town so best way to tour is by horse and carriage. We also stay over night in the historic Julian Gold Rush Hotel founded by a ex-slave named Albert Robinson. In the middle of our journey we came across a theater group named Doves and Desparados that gave us a wild west show. By mid-day we explored what it was like to mine in the Eagle Mine of the area.

Check out the most amazing discoveries with a metal detector! This top 10 list features some of the most unique, valuable and mysterious ancient treasures found by metal detecting around the world!

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.

This historic gold dredge is a California-type bucket line dredge. It was operated by the Pioneer Dredge Company from 1933 to 1941. In its eight year operation it produced almost 40,000 ounces of gold. It is significant since it is in fair condition and it is one of the few dredges left in Montana. The dredge is sitting in its dredge pond and is mostly intact, complete with the bucket boom in front and the tailing boom in the rear. The pin that the dredge pivots on can still be seen attached to the back of the rig. The dredge is 30 x 65 feet and is 30 feet tall. It is located on private land so please respect the property owner rights and this fragile piece of Montana mining history. Please comment if you know the name of this dredge or other details.

Conservatives have no interest in conserving public lands or nature. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Read more here: https://www.rawstory.com/2018/02/trump-allow-outrageous-gold-rush-style-grab-public-lands-begin-less-48-hours/ "Despite protests from conservationists, local tribe leaders, Democratic lawmakers, and even the United Nations’ expert on indigenous rights, at 6am on Friday the Trump administration will allow citizens and companies to start staking claims on sections of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in Utah so the new stakeholders can conduct hard rock mining on the formerly protected lands. “It is outrageous to witness the dismantling of the Bears Ears national monument, in what constitutes a serious attack on indigenous peoples’ rights in the United States,” said Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples. 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.
