Toxic Superfund Put Near Critical Level In Butte, Montana
 
01:03
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — It was an unusual and unfortunate confluence of events: A larger-than-normal number of geese was making a later-than-normal migration over Montana when a snowstorm blew in at the wrong time and sent them soaring to the wrong place. The throngs of white birds splashed down in a 50 billion-gallon toxic stew that is part of the nation's largest Superfund site. At least 3,000 died. Residents of this mining city say the snow goose deaths this fall were a wake-up call that raises broader questions about the Berkeley Pit and whether federal regulators will be ready when the former copper mine that collects heavily acidic, metal-laden water reaches capacity. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2017-01-23-US--Toxic%20Pit/id-5982c8a2a30b4634b525794028b0f3ff http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

This is one of the stops we made on our road trip. This video is of Butte Montana. I really like this old Mining town. It was a boom town back in the day and they had a little bit of everything here. All of the buildings are very old as you can see. With mining came a lot of people and one of the main attractions became whore houses or brothels. Prostitutes were a big deal back then and there was quite a few of them here. The were in business all the way into the 80's. Everything is shut down now and the town is not near what is what back in the day. This is just a video showing you some of the scenic attratctions that Butte has to offer.

Our Lady of the Rockies Berkeley Pit Copper Mining Site Butte Montana Virgin Mary Statue
 
04:33
Our Lady of the Rockies Berkeley Pit huge Copper Mining Site Our Lady of the Rockies in Butte Montana is the second Talles Statue in the USA Can You guess the First..;-) http://www.1ownercarguy.com Butte is a Western Mine Town and The Richest hill In the World and Butte has huge Virgin Mary Statue on top of the mountains overlooking the city Our Lady of the Rockies. The Statue is Lit up att night you can also do a tour and see it up close in the Spring and Summer. This Statue is 90 Feet tall the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil is only 99 feet so pretty close considering just how Small Butte Montana is. The only Statue Bigger than Our Lady of the Rockies is The Statue of Liberty.. The Berkley Pit was the Richest Mountain in the world at the time. They produced enough Copper to pave a Four-Lane Highway four inches thick from Butte to Salt Lake City which is about 350 to 400 miles. That is very impressive. Pause and read the paper it is pretty cool how much rock they pulled out of the pit. They are closed in the winter time or I would of showed you the actual pit itself. As I drove around I tried to zoom in on the giant Virgin Mary statue that they have up on top of the hill but I couldn't get that good of a shot of it. It is not the size of the one in Brazil but it is huge and quite impressive. From Wikipedia Our Lady of the Rockies is a 90-foot (27 m) statue, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, that sits atop the Continental Divide overlooking Butte, Montana. It is the second tallest statue in the United States after The Statue of Liberty.[1] The statue was built by volunteers using donated materials to honor women everywhere, especially mothers. The base is 8,510 feet above sea level and 3,500 feet above the town. The statue is lit and visible at night. The statue was first imagined by local resident Bob O'Bill. In 1979, his wife was seriously ill with cancer. He promised the Blessed Virgin Mary that he would make a 5 foot statue of her in his yard if his wife recovered.[2] When she recovered he began the project with his fellow workers who gradually changed the initial vision to a 90-foot-high mountain top statue. Many people in Butte donated materials and time to make the statue a reality. The design for the statue was engineered by Laurien Eugene Riehl. He was a retired engineer for the Anaconda Company who donated his engineering skills to the project. The statue had to withstand the powerful windsheers that buffet the ridge tops. Joe Roberts donated his lot and buildings for the construction of the statue. The statue was airlifted from Roberts Rocky Mountain Equipment to its present site on the Continental Divide. Work on the project began December 29, 1979. Volunteers spent many summer evenings blasting a road to the top of the Rockies, sometimes making only 10 feet of progress a day. The base of the statue was poured in September 1985 with 400 tons of concrete. The concrete was provided by Pioneer Here is the Soda Steam link Free Shipping and $10 off http://www.stockgambles.com/stock-gambles-blog.html Make sure and check Out My channel I have Lots of 1 & 2 Owner Cars Trucks and SUV's on there and i sell them Cheap Also If You Subscribe You wont Miss out..;-) I Have a few Channels You can Access them Via My Main Channel page or also you can See the Links I post Below I will Also Post links to My websites and Facebook so you don't Miss any of the action Sign Up Everywhere!!..;-) Cheers Nathan Wratislaw AKA 1 Owner Car Guy 406-544-6919 Make sure and visit Some of My Websites Below I do All Sorts of Unique Things..;-) http://www.1ownercarguy.com http://www.cerealmarshmallows.com http://www.Beaglespocket.com http://www.ClickWebs.com http://www.Hardener.com http://www.missoulaautoauction.com http://www.vita-depot.com http://www.Nathanwratislaw.com Also Make Sure And ADD Me or Subscribe on Facebook & Youtube http://www.facebook.com/cerealmarshmallows And For Youtube i have 2 channels you may want to add http://www.youtube.com/user/cerealmarshmallows http://www.youtube.com/user/1ownercarguy http://www.youtube.com/user/stockgambles http://www.youtube.com/user/montanamuscle Send Me Hate Mail or Goodies & Stuff to show on Youtube 1 Owner Car Guy (Nathan Wratislaw) PO Box 2505 Lakeside, Ca 92040 No Ticking items please..;-) "Our Lady of the Rockies" "Virgin Mary" "Statue Of Liberty" Huge Biggest Satue In USA "Berkeley Pit" "Christ the Redeemer" Brazil Idol Pit Mining Copper Mine "Copper Block" "Mining Site" "Butte Montana" Western "Mining Town" Religion Religious Figure Church Mountain "Nathan Wratislaw" "1 Owner Car Guy" "Richest Hill On Earth" Ore Rock "Waste Rock" Ton Tons See Find Closed Tourism "Tourist Attraction" Site Construct Build Train Caboose "Mine Car"

Meaderville Montana Landscape ~ Berkeley Pit Begins 1960
 
02:53
Landscape footage of Meaderville, an historic neighborhood of Butte Montana. Shot in the late 1950's to early 1960's, this footage also shows the beginning of the Berkeley Pit then owned by the Anaconda Copper Mining Company. Less than a few years after this footage was taken, the Pit completely destroyed Meaderville. The film was originally shot by Emma Perotto, a life long Butte/Meaderville resident who is now deceased. The film format was Regular 8mm Kodachrome. Emma was an extended family member. She gave me this footage in 2009. In 2010, Leading Edge Video Productions did a pro bono (Thanks!) film to video transfer of the footage. It is copyright free and may be downloaded for non-profit/educational use.

Butte, Montana - The Richest Hill on Earth
 
03:55
Wheel Stories travels to Butte, Montana and pays tribute to a unique and fascinating American town. Referred to as “The Richest Hill on Earth”, Butte was one of the largest cities in the Rocky Mountain region during the copper boom of the late 1800s and early 1900s. The population swelled to 100,000 residents as vast mining operations were built and conducted within the town’s business and residential districts. The mines attracted workers from around the globe and miles of tunnels and mine shafts were carved beneath the city. The uptown section thrived with busy hotels, saloons and brothels. In the mid-1950s, Butte transitioned from shaft mining to open pit mining. The immense Berkeley Pit was abandoned in the 1980s and became filled with toxic water, laden with acid and heavy metals. The pit has become one of our biggest federal superfund sites. Today, skeletal headframes dot the Butte landscape and provide a stunning commemoration of the town’s colorful mining heritage. Butte and nearby Anaconda are designated as the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States. The towns feature numerous classic examples of early 20th century architecture. The population of Butte, however, now stands at roughly 34,000 and many buildings sit empty. The silent structures remind me of Edward Hopper paintings in 3 dimensional form. Take note that legendary motorcycle stuntman Evel Knievel was born and raised in Butte. Each July the community celebrates Evel Knievel Days in honor of the famed daredevil.

Independent Lens | BUTTE AMERICA | Film Clip #1 | PBS
 
03:56
http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/butte-america You see the world differently when you work underground. That made Butte, Montana different right from the start as immigrants came from around the world to work the mines. But what they blasted out of the 10,000 miles of tunnels was more than just copper. It was the rise of unions and multinational corporations, and the seeds of the current debate over the environment. In this clip, when the mines closed, a poisonous silence settled over Butte. BUTTE, AMERICA premieres Tuesday, October 20 on Independent Lens, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Maggie Gyllenhaal, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, Independent Lens is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide. Visit the Web site for more: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/butte-america

Ivan Doig at University Book Store - Seattle
 
39:49
Of all of Ivan Doig's unique characters, 1920s conman-turned-librarian Morrie Morgan is one of his most enjoyable. When conflict between Butte, Montana's miner's union and the Anaconda Copper Mining Company explodes, Morgan inserts himself in the middle as the new editorialist for the independent newspaper. And with a wily Chicago professional brought in to pen for the other side, the battle is on! For a fun reunion with one of our favorite librarians and a fascinating look into an era where the power of print was supreme, join us for a reading and singing of Sweet Thunder—just released in paperback—with Doig. http://www.bookstore.washington.edu/home/home.taf?
