South Africa's Illegal Gold Mines
In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

11 Most Massive Mines in the World
From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

Impacts of Mining
beneath the surface COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS FOR THE GLOBAL MINING THREAT Project Vision: Preventing Human Rights Abuses Related to Mining The objective of this multi-­‐year project is to build a multimedia toolkit that educates, empowers, and connects communities impacted by extractive industries. The toolkit aims to stop human rights abuses before they occur and to put communities in a strong position to protect their rights and fight for justice. The project uses videos to share stories and practical advice from communities already impacted by mining with communities where mining will soon occur. These stories will form the foundation of a video toolkit that provides communities with strategies and techniques for protecting their rights, and inspires them to action. Cutting Edge Tools for Community Organizations All videos will be published with a facilitator’s guide to help maximize the impact of video screenings and support communities in taking meaningful action. Videos will be distributed on DVDs, USBs, and online, along with links to relevant guides and further information on key topics and strategies covered in the videos. Key partners will also be provided with projection equipment and hands-­‐on training to launch their grassroots distribution program. Video Collection: Year 1 ● The Impacts of Mining (Peru, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe) ● Baseline Data and Environmental Monitoring (Nigeria) ● Community Mapping and Resistance to Mining (Ghana) ● Building a Resistance Movement (Peru, forthcoming) ● Negotiating for Environmental Protections (Bolivia, forthcoming) ● Resettlement and Relocation (Zimbabwe, forthcoming) Iteration & Year 2 The second phase of our project emphasizes distribution, feedback, and iteration. We will hold special screenings with target audiences in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and other countries where mining poses an imminent threat. We are also seeking feedback from experts and practitioners on how to improve the content, and our distribution and implementation strategy. Get Involved! If you’re interested in collaborating on the project, hosting a screening, or providing advice or feedback, please contact Jessie Landerman at [email protected]

But we needed more arguments to claim that this mine was that old. Afterwards we did a radio carbon dates of the charcoal collected from this place which corresponded the age of the ceramics and thus we had all the arguments to claim that these foundlings represented the early Bronze Age, and it was the sensational discovery because it revealed that this is the oldest mine in the world discovered for the moment." 9.

There we have discovered stoves where the melting process was taking place. However, we are still in the process of finding where the final product was made. In other words, we have a chain from mining to processing of the gold, but we are still looking for the final product and right now our number one concern is to find what what has been done with the Sakdrisi gold." 20.

Abandoned Mines Mining has been around for ages. Like, the oldest mine is said to be around 43,000 years old! Mining is the process of digging into the earth to find minerals such as coal, gold, diamond or any other mineral that humans find valuable. Since mining has been around for so long and people will dig just about anywhere to find something valuable, it’s not a surprise that many mines become abandoned or forgotten.

Klerksdorp Sphere
Klerksdorp Spheres are "out of place" artifacts, found in sedimentary rock, in a coal / diamond mine near Ottosdal, South Africa. It is believed these objects are up to 3.8 billion years old. These objects are spherical/ovoid shaped -- similar to how a planet like Earth or Jupiter are "squished" -- all planets are not perfectly round, they are "bulged" at their equator due to the planet's rotation. All Klerksdorp Spheres have 2 or more parallel lines which run around the equator. These lines are always equidistant from each other. Some argue that the medal composition is not a type of metal which exists naturally on Earth. However, others have stated that these metals can exist on Earth, if chemical components are mixed. Somehow, although the Earth's pressure and heat can create the coal and diamonds in the mine, these objects were not destroyed. The exterior shell of each ball is a consistent number of centimeters thick, with a gooey substance at the center, which turns to dust when exposed to oxygen. Each sphere is balanced on the center of gravity of the sphere -- when you hold it in your hand, it feels solid and balanced, like it has a weighted exterior, but not so much a weighted core. They also have a consistent radius from the core at all points on their surfaces. It feels like a "warm" rock -- similar to the type at Stonehenge (which has both warm and cold rock). There is no smell, and you cannot crush it with your hand. These objects are clearly made by some sort of intelligent life. But by whom? Who knew metallurgy back then, and why make hundreds of these things? From carbon dating, the Earth is estimated to be about 4.5 or 4.8 billion years old. The Klerksdorp Spheres are carbon-dated to 3.8 billion years. Which means, these spheres existed on Earth while it was only 1 billion years old. I personally was not aware that the Earth was a solid mass at 1 billion years. Modern humans have only been known to exist for the last 4000 or 6000 years - the height of Egyptian, Sumarian, and Mesopotamian cultures. Cor-Magnon humans existed 12,000 - 35,000 years ago. As apes, humans were swinging from trees 120,000 years ago. Even dinosaurs were supposed to have died out 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous Period. As far as we understand from linear history, no humans existed 3.8 billion years ago.

The Industrial Revolution (18-19th Century)
Introduction to some of the elements of the Industrial Revolution, more on this subject to come! The economic developments of the 1800s saw the development of agrarian and handicraft economies in Europe and America transform into industrial urbanised ones. The term to describe this phenomenon would be known as the ‘Industrial Revolution’ and was first used by French writers, but made popular by English economic historian Arnold Toynbee.

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

The Mines of Wylam (11th May 2017)
11th May 2017 I go for a stroll around Wylam seeking out some of the former pits that I know about. I am not a historian so I may have some things wrong and some of the locations are approximations based on old maps. Similarly, my family history overlaps many of the sites... you won't believe how much family history I cut out of this video... just can't help talking about it. For my branch of the family, Wylam is considered our ancestral home because my paternal line has been living there for nearly 250 years. Although I no longer live in the village, many of my family still do. These are all sites that I am very familiar with and have visited many many times in the past. I hope you enjoy. Approximation of my route (I added a few extra miles on because I had other family business to do in Wylam): https://gb.mapometer.com/walking/route_4538415.html I didn't actually explain who Timothy Hackworth was... He was one of the 4 men who designed Puffing Billy (the oldest surviving steam train in the world - now located in the Science Discovery museum in London) and helped come up with the idea of using metal rails to support the weight of the steam train... thus inventing the modern railway. The other men involved were Christopher Blackett, William Hedley and the one that always gets written out of history was Jonathon Forster. Additions from my family after they watched the video: The bit of brick wall on rift mine that I wasn't sure about whether it belonged to the mine or the cottages belonged to the mine. There was originally a second brick wall running parallel and it formed the foundation for an iron and wooden structure that held the winding wheel. There was some confusion about the cottages because I was describing them above the pit meaning above the hill. Just to clear up that confusion, the cottages were south of the pit. The coal from this mine along with the coal from the second mine on the other side of Rift Farm were both processed at Anne pit. The pill box was housed by Poles but they lived in separate accommodation and they also manned a search light for spotting bombers coming up the Tyne. The wooden structure that I spotted where the Bell mine buildings were located belonged to a some sheds that were used by the farm for storing horse drawn farming equipment, quite possibly taken over by the farm after the mine closed.

Karida Brown "Archiving in Black: Lessons from EKAAMP"
Sociologist Karida Brown will give a public lecture on the history and lives of African Americans who moved with the Great Migration of the twentieth century to the coal-mining towns of Southern Appalachia. The lecture will be at 7 o'clock tonight (Monday, March 25th), in Gailor Auditorium. It is open to the public. Brown’s book, Gone Home: Race and Roots through Appalachia, recently was published by the University of North Carolina Press. Gone Home focuses on Harlan County, Kentucky, and in it Brown challenges and corrects our assumptions today that Southern Appalachia – where Sewanee is located – is and has always been a region populated exclusively by poor whites. In fact, Brown shows, thousands of African Americans migrated from the deep south into areas of West Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky in the early twentieth century and made their livings and established their homes in coal mining towns. Brown’s grandparents were part of that initial migration, settling in Lynch, Kentucky, and her parents were born and raised there. When they reached adulthood, though, they followed other blacks in migrating to urban centers around the U.S. Brown’s parents moved to Long Island, New York, where she was born and raised. Those migrations and the decline of mining led to the disappearance of many of these black communities. African Americans, Brown writes, have been “largely displaced from Appalachia in the popular imagination, in that their experiences and contributions to the region and to the coal economy have been largely erased from representations of the place.” Beyond restoring these black coal mining communities to public memory and attention, Brown argues that these places still have deep and abiding meaning to the descendants of the original coal-mining migrants. Each year many return to Harlan County on Memorial Day to reunite with those who trace their families to the area. Brown herself interviewed more than 150 persons from these communities, creating an extraordinary public archive that is available on line through the Southern Historical Collection at the University of North Carolina. The Eastern Kentucky African American Migration Project address is http://ekaamp.web.unc.edu. The recovery work that Brown has done has a special resonance for Sewanee because it parallels the history of African Americans in this community. Before 1970, 200 or more African Americans lived in Sewanee and worked for the university and for local white families. In the aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement and the opening of better opportunities for education and work elsewhere, younger generations moved away from the Mountain. The black neighborhoods here declined dramatically in population. As a result, more recent arrivals to Sewanee, including students, often do not realize that prior to 1980, Sewanee was a town of white and black residents and that blacks were vital to the life and prosperity of the university and the community. It is too easy to imagine mistakenly that Sewanee, like Appalachia, always has been a white community. Brown’s lecture is sponsored by the Sewanee Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation, the six-year initiative undertaken by the University of the South to investigate its historic entanglements with slavery and slavery’s legacies. Funding for the lecture is provided by a Common Heritage grant awarded to the Sewanee Project by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Project is using the NEH grant to sponsor two community archiving events this summer, May 27 (Memorial Day) and July 5, at the St. Mark’s Community Center. At these “history harvests,” as they sometimes are called, present and former black residents of Sewanee and their descendants will be able to bring their family artifacts – photographs, family Bibles, scrapbooks, school records – and have them scanned, digitally preserved and returned to them on a flash drive. Participants will not have to surrender their mementos, but they will be invited to donate a digital copy to a community archive, where their histories will be available for others to learn about. There also will be an oral history booth to record memories and stories of Sewanee’s black history, and a “community map” where participants may locate important places that have disappeared from Sewanee’s landscape. Brown received her undergraduate degree from Temple University, a master’s from the University of Pennsylvania, and her Ph.D. from Brown University.

The Black Railroad Workers That Built America
The construction of the U.S. railway system was the most important industry that black American's ever worked in. More black American's were railroaders than were steel workers, carpenters, coal miners, or were loggers. America's railroad construction perpetuated the use of black slave labor and later exemplified the African-American industrial experience. "The entire southern railroad network that was built during the slavery era was built almost exclusively by slaves. Some of the railroads owned slaves, other railroads hired or rented slaves from slave owners. And the most shocking thing that I found was that women as well as men were actually involved in the hard, dangerous, brutal work of railroad construction." - Ted Kornweibel, author of "Railroads in the African American Experience: A Photographic Journey," *Interview courtesy of KPBS - San Diego State University 2010 VISIT OUR WEBSITE TODAY! http://www.blacktradesmen.us is a social networking website catering to African-American construction tradesmen & tradeswomen.

The World's Largest Abandoned City - Ordos
Ordos The World’s Largest Abandoned City The development of the city of Ordos is a unique tale. Ordos is a city designed from scratch and built within 10 years. This city came to fruition after private mining companies were given the rights to dig into deposits in the late 90’s and 2000’s. This generated a lot of tax revenue making Ordos the 2nd highest income per capita city in China. Ordos is a city located in Inner Mongolia that has been constantly been burdened with water shortage issues. Instead of trying to revamp the current infrastructure the Chinese government decided to rebuild the city from scratch which is called “New Ordos” just 16 miles or 25 km kilometers away from the existing city now called “Old Ordos”. The people of Old Ordos refer to New Ordos as the Kangbashi district of Ordos, these new and old labels are basically not supported by anyone locally. Two villages built around the Wulan Mulan River were demolished and construction started in 2005. 161 billion dollars in infrastructure was invested to build the Kangbashi District over the first 5 years. Regardless if anyone lives in this new city, this is a major plus to the government of China as it increases China’s GDP. The government gave kickbacks to developers who helped boost GDP so building anything anywhere is promoted. The old city of Ordos or Dongsheng is home to over ½ a million people, it was expected that many of them would move to the new city as it became completed. As explained by many locals, a working couple only makes $800 a month combined of which ⅓ is taken for rent. The new apartments in New Ordos sell for 70 - 100 thousand dollars making it virtually impossible for locals to live there. Sales were slow at first but eventually investors snapped up many of the units in the new city. This has left New Ordos with a ton of infrastructure and no residents. The city was originally designed to hold 1 million people but was scaled down during construction to 500,000 then to 300,000 after coal prices crashed. The city features a 5 story shopping mall, impressive monuments and statues, art and city museum, the Ordos Dongsheng Stadium that seats 35,000 people, opera house, a brand new airport and a modern designed mosque. The city streets are lined with skyscraper after skyscraper that are almost completely empty. A toy store is one of the only stores in the massive 5 story mall, the man who runs the store says he sells something every few days and if the government doesn’t step in soon to fix it, he may have to move back to Dongsheng. It is estimated only 2 % of the buildings were ever filled the rest remain abandoned. Outside the mall an elaborate water show is put on every night with only a few people found to be watching it. A water show this size in a normal city would draw thousands of viewers daily. The city has everything it needs to be a great thriving new city like extra wide roads with bike lanes like what is found in Taipei, modern amenities and infrastructure but simply no people. The initial wave of 30,000 people that moved to New Ordos all lived in a 4 to 5 block radius just north of central park. A few years later that grew to 60,000 and now 12 years after the start of construction there are around 150,000 residents in a city that was originally designed for 1 million. The city has been doing many things to attract people to live there like moving the best schools from Dongsheng to Kangbashi. While some areas of Kangbashi aren’t a ghost town at all today, many still are. One abandoned project is the Ordos 100 Project, which is a project that was to have 100 different extreme luxury villas designed. Instead of the government doing it themselves they invited 100 different architects from around the world to each design a luxury villas to be placed on the map. Land sections were given out with the utmost creative freedom except the design was not to look like traditional Mongolian designs such as Yurts. Each architect designed their villa and construction started. Within the Ordos 100 Project site multiple half finished villas can be found. While many lay half finished some have progress going forward.

Table Mountain
http://www.mcremo.com/california.html https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-GyNP5vrEatUG9WdUtGWDFLNTA/view?usp=sharing https://www.google.com/maps/@37.9294707,-120.4950186,12z/data=!5m1!1e4?hl=en The artifacts from these deep mine shafts and tunnels were apparently of great antiquity. Some of the more significant discoveries were made at Table Mountain in Tuolumne County. There miners dug vertical tunnels that penetrated through layers of volcanic deposits to reach the auriferous gravels. Or they dug horizontal tunnels that ran below the volcanic deposits. The auriferous gravels lay in old river channels. Norris and Webb (1990, pp. 90-93) give the geological history of the region. During the Eocene, rivers cut channels into the bedrock of the Sierra Nevada. These channels became filled with gravels containing gold. In the late Oligocene, the Eocene river channels were covered with thick deposits of rhyolitic volcanic ash, which now forms a pinkish rock. New rivers cut channels into these deposits. At Table Mountain in Tuolumne County, the new river channel was filled by a flow of latite (some earlier geologists called it basalt). This flow occurred in the Miocene. Geologists obtained potassium argon dates of about 9 million years for the Table Mountain latite. Later, the softer material on the sides of the latite flow was worn away by erosion, leaving the harder volcanic deposits. So at Table Mountain we have three hundred feet of Miocene latite covering Oligocene rhyolitic tuffs, which in turn cover the old Eocene river channels containing the auriferous gravels. According to Slemmons (1966, p. 200), the auriferous gravels are at least 30 million years old. If the gravels belong to the early Eocene, they could be as much as 50-55 million years old. The principal discoveries of human bones and artifacts came from the very lowest levels of the auriferous gravels near the bedrock.

Mexican Oil and Drug Cartels: Cocaine & Crude (Full Length)
Watch more here: http://bit.ly/2wMCWhh VICE founder Suroosh Alvi travels to Mexico to see the effects of cartel oil theft firsthand. Mexico’s notoriously violent drug cartels are diversifying. Besides trafficking narcotics, extorting businesses, and brutally murdering their rivals, cartels are now at work exploiting their country’s precious number one export: oil. Every day as many as 10,000 barrels of crude oil are stolen from Mexico’s state-run oil company, Pemex, through precarious illegal taps, which are prone to deadly accidents. Pemex estimates that it loses $5 billion annually in stolen oil, some of which ends up being sold over the border in U.S. gas stations. As police fight the thieves and the cartels fight each other, the number of victims caught in the battle for the pipelines continues to climb.

12 GIANT Abandoned Structures And Places
From huge unsettling ghost towns to strange and unique buildings. These are 12 GIANT Abandoned Structures And Places HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 11. SSC | TEXAS 10. Foreshore Bridge | South Africa 9. Battersea Power Station | England 8. Tehachapi Pass Wind Farms | California 7. Sterick Building | Tennessee 6.Hashima Island | Japan 5.Ryugyong Hotel | North Korea This is a shining example of what Best Korea can accomplish when they put their mind to it ! The beautiful 105 story 1080 ft (330m) pyramid hotel sports hundreds of unfinished rooms, rustic growth, tons of concrete and no windows for 20 years. Construction began in 1987, abruptly stopped in 1992, and then resumed again in 2011. Not much has changed since, its not a place you can just go exploring at, since you would be arrested fairly quickly, and you DON’T wanna end up in a North Korean prison, trust me on that one. Do you guys think its possible the whole building is just a facade for a massive weapon? That would be crazy ! 4. Fukushima | Japan Let's stick around this area for a bit longer, as you may have heard, in 2011 the Tohoku earthquake caused a massive tsunami that hit the coast of Japan and caused billions of dollars in damages, it was one of the worst disasters in recent history, and things got worse when information about the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant came out. The plant suffered catastrophic failure, that could have been prevented… but thats just not the way thing happened. The nearby town of Namie stood frozen in time, until April 2017. The Japanese government allowed people to go back to their homes…. Would you ever go back to your home if you were in their position ? I’m not so sure I would. Namie was not the only town evacuated, this map shows the total area affected... 3. Pripyat | Ukraine Pripyat is a town located dangerously close to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant… before Fukushima Daiichi, Chernobyl was the only nuclear accident to be given the highest rating of 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale. In 1986, Reactor N4 suffered a catastrophic failure during a safety test operation, the accident was not handled properly, and many people did not evacuate in time. The town of Pripyat had 49,360 residents, and fell right into the “Zone of Alienation”. For many years nobody was allowed to visit the town, but that has changed in recent years, the Ukranian Government has decided to allow small groups of tourists to visit the ghost town. Not a lot of people mention the actual city of Chernobyl, which also had to be evacuated. Some 10,000 people lost their homes, and suffered health complications. The city was only evacuated 30 hours after the accident. As of 2017, the town is considered a “Ghost Town” by most, but there are residents that have moved back…. Again… that's just strange to me. 2. The Base | Tenerife | Spain Oohhkay, enough with the nuclear disasters, lets go back to old fashioned funding problems. Some sources say this was a military base, others say it was supposed to be a leper colony ? Whatever the case may be, lets look at some photos from here. The church looks pretty cool from the outside, this is probably the main hospital of the compound, the insides of the buildings have served as a canvas for many aspiring graffiti artists, which creates a strange mix of great art and sad history. It doesn’t seem like there is a lot of security around the location, just watch out for squatters…or leppers. 1.Tkvarcheli Thermal Power Plant | Tkvarcheli | Abkhazia For our final destination, we will travel to Abkhazia or Georgia, or Russia, or whatever you wanna call it. Do you notice that big power plant? Yeah its no longer operational, at all. This thing is massive, and it was supported by the nearby coal mining operations. Just look at it from the inside, so much machinery just going to waste. Oh yeahh, there is dark and unsettling mining tunnels. Have you ever been inside a shut down mine? I don’t think I would last too long in these tunnels. Let me know in the comments below :D At first, I just thought I would talk about the power plant, but the whole city has suffered, a lot of the buildings are barely holding up, the population has been cut in half, and some of the surrounding smaller towns are completely abandoned.

Mapping resources that matter: Paul Bauman at TEDxCanmore
Talk Overview 90% of geophysicists in the world explore for oil and gas. Another 5% explore for mineral resources. And another 4.9% teach and regulate the previous 95%. In today's world, fluctuating commodity prices and mountainous stockpiles of recycled metals tell us that we have too much oil, uranium, coal, and iron ore. Today and in the foreseeable future, what the world is drastically scarce of is clean water, clean soil, and a common cultural legacy. Those remaining less than 0.1% of geophysicists not accounted for, above, are dedicated to developing techniques to explore for potable water, mapping soil salinization, demining previously productive agricultural land, and delineating subsurface remains of culturally rich sites threatened by development. With examples from Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East, we can see how these non-destructive subsurface investigation techniques can radically improve life not only on a local and regional scale, but even on a continent wide scale. And where we are not using these approaches, we can envision how the development of access to clean water, clean soil, and mankind's cultural legacies can be greatly improved. Speaker Profile Paul Bauman is the Technical Director of the Geophysics group at WorleyParsons, in Calgary, where he has been working since 1990. He is one of the world experts on near surface applications of borehole and surface geophysical methods as applied to investigations in water resources, archaeology, soil science, geotechnical engineering, subsurface contamination, and geohazard identification. Paul has a B.Sc.E. in Geological Engineering from Princeton University, a Minor in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton, and an M.Sc. in Earth Sciences from the University of Waterloo. Paul has published widely in peer reviewed journals, scientific volumes, and conference proceedings. He has presented geophysical papers at over 100 conferences in an extraordinarily wide range of disciplines including geophysics, soil science, hydrogeology, disaster relief, archaeology, water resource development, contaminant hydrogeology, mining, mine waste management, heavy oil, shallow gas, salt water intrusion, salt water intrusion, etc. He has been an invited speaker at many educational, professional, and government institutions including Princeton University, Boston University, California State, the University of Pennsylvania, the National Water Authority in Yemen, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Royal BC Museum, and the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre in Yellowknife. Aspects of his archaeogeophysical work have been the subject of a NOVA documentary (Ancient Refuge in the Holy Land), numerous radio and television interviews, a National Geographic movie entitled "Finding Atlantis," and numerous newspaper and magazine articles including in Time, National Geographic, and the Reader's Digest. Paul's work in the Cave of Letters and other sites is featured in the recently published popular books Secrets of the Cave of Letters: Rediscovering a Dead Sea Mystery; Digging Through the Bible: Modern Archaeology and the Ancient Bible; and Digging through History: Archaeology and Religion from Atlantis to the Holocaust. Ongoing archaeogeophysical projects include the subsurface imaging of a Roman bath house from the time of Jesus, located in Nazareth; the geophysical mapping of the ancient Phoenician harbour of Tel Akko, perhaps the first constructed harbour in the world; and the geophysical mapping of the destroyed and buried remains of a World War II Nazi extermination camp at Sobibor, Poland. A few water resource projects of note include the introduction of an entirely new approach to water exploration in Africa, which raised success rates in drilling from less than 20% to over 90% in Malawi; innovative and successful geophysical water exploration programs in Yemen which tapped previously unused aquifers in areas that had gone years without significant rainfall; and the secondment to UNICEF to assess the impact of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami to the water resources of Aceh Province in Indonesia, and to begin the redevelopment and rehabilitation of water supplies to the region -- besides being an experienced geophysicist and hydrogeologist, Paul speaks fluent Indonesian and Malay.

Driving Downtown - Birmingham Alabama USA
Driving Downtown - Birmingham Alabama USA - Season 1 Episode 7. Starting Point: 20th St https://goo.gl/maps/A9rz55ggvuD2 Highlights include 20th St - 6th Ave - 17th St - 1st Ave - 23rd St - 2nd Ave - 3rd Ave - 4th Ave - 5th Ave - 6th Ave - 19th St - 18th St - Rev Abraham Woods Jr Blvd - 22nd St. Birmingham is the largest city in Alabama. The city is the county seat of Jefferson County. The city's population was 212,237 according to the 2010 United States Census.[3] The Birmingham-Hoover Metropolitan Statistical Area had a population of about 1,128,047 according to the 2010 Census, which is approximately one quarter of Alabama's population. Birmingham was founded in 1871, during the post-Civil War Reconstruction period, through the merger of three pre-existing farm towns, notably, former Elyton. It grew from there, annexing many more of its smaller neighbors, into an industrial and railroad transportation center with a focus on mining, the iron and steel industry, and railroading. Birmingham was named for Birmingham, England, UK; one of that nation's major industrial cities. Most of the original settlers who founded Birmingham were of English ancestry.[4] In one writer's view, the city was planned as a place where cheap, non-unionized, and African-American labor from rural Alabama could be employed in the city's steel mills and blast furnaces, giving it a competitive advantage over industrial cities in the Midwest and Northeast.[5] From its founding through the end of the 1960s, Birmingham was a primary industrial center of the South. The pace of Birmingham's growth during the period from 1881 through 1920 earned its nicknames The Magic City and The Pittsburgh of the South. Much like Pittsburgh, Birmingham's major industries were iron and steel production, plus a major component of the railroading industry, where rails and railroad cars were both manufactured in Birmingham. In the field of railroading, the two primary hubs of railroading in the Deep South were nearby Atlanta and Birmingham, beginning in the 1860s and continuing through to the present day. The economy diversified during the later half of the twentieth century. Though the manufacturing industry maintains a strong presence in Birmingham, other businesses and industries such as banking, telecommunications, transportation, electrical power transmission, medical care, college education, and insurance have risen in stature. Mining in the Birmingham area is no longer a major industry with the exception of coal mining. Birmingham ranks as one of the most important business centers in the Southeastern United States and is also one of the largest banking centers in the United States. In addition, the Birmingham area serves as headquarters to one Fortune 500 company: Regions Financial, along with five other Fortune 1000 companies. In higher education, Birmingham has been the location of the University of Alabama School of Medicine (formerly the Medical College of Alabama) and the University of Alabama School of Dentistry since 1947. Since that time it has also obtained a campus of the University of Alabama, University of Alabama at Birmingham (founded circa 1969), one of three main campuses of the University of Alabama System. It is also home to three private institutions: Samford University, Birmingham-Southern College, and Miles College. Between these colleges and universities, the Birmingham area has major colleges of medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, law, engineering, and nursing. The city has three of the state's five law schools: Cumberland School of Law, Birmingham School of Law, and Miles Law School. Birmingham is also the headquarters of the Southeastern Conference, one of the major U.S. collegiate athletic conferences. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham,_Alabama http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g30375-Activities-Birmingham_Alabama.html http://birminghamal.org/

Westward Expansion: Crash Course US History #24
In which John Green teaches you about the Wild, Wild, West, which as it turns out, wasn't as wild as it seemed in the movies. When we think of the western expansion of the United States in the 19th century, we're conditioned to imagine the loner. The self-reliant, unattached cowpoke roaming the prairie in search of wandering calves, or the half-addled prospector who has broken from reality thanks to the solitude of his single-minded quest for gold dust. While there may be a grain of truth to these classic Hollywood stereotypes, it isn't a very big grain of truth. Many of the pioneers who settled the west were family groups. Many were immigrants. Many were major corporations. The big losers in the westward migration were Native Americans, who were killed or moved onto reservations. Not cool, American pioneers. Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode.
