Less Common Metals 'Jewel in the Crown' -- Great Western's Vertical Integration Advantage
 
05:51
May 10, 2013 -- Marc LeVier, President, CEO & Director, Great Western Minerals Group Ltd. ('GWMG', TSXV: GWG | OTCQX: GWMG) in an interview with Dave Glover for ProEdgeWire (ProEdgeWire.com) discuss how they are on track to become a fully integrated mining operation. Marc LeVier describes their vertical integration advantage with Less Common Metals. "Less Common Metals is the jewel in the crown and is where the value occurs." Less Common Metals has been in production for 20+ years and with GWMG's ability to develop a mine in South Africa to produce a rare earth carbonate product offers a win-win for shareholders. With USD$51 million in the bank, GWMG has the funding they need to complete the feasibility engineering study and determine the best location for a separation facility. About GWMG: Great Western Minerals Group Ltd. is engaged in becoming an integrated rare earth producer. Its specialty alloys are used in the battery, magnet and aerospace industries. Produced at the Company's wholly-owned subsidiaries, Less Common Metals Limited in Ellesmere, U.K. and Great Western Technologies Inc. in Troy, Michigan, these alloys contain transition metals including nickel, cobalt, iron and other rare earth elements. As part of the Company's vertical integration strategy, GWMG also holds 100% equity ownership in Rare Earth Extraction Co. Limited, which controls the Steenkampskraal monazite mine. In addition to an exploration program at Steenkampskraal, GWMG also holds interests in four active rare earth exploration and development properties in North America.

The Gear For Exploring Abandoned Mines
 
25:01
As you can see, exploring and documenting abandoned mines takes a fair amount of gear… I have tried and rejected many pieces of mine exploring equipment over the years and, in the past, I have always wanted something else or been less than satisfied with a particular piece of gear. However, this exploring season, I finally feel like I have the perfect mix. There is no piece of gear I am unsatisfied with and no gear I feel like I am missing. So, the time was right to share what I have learned. I’m sure everyone will have their own gear preferences, but this is the mix that works for me. Below are links to the products featured in this video in case you want more details or wish to purchase them for yourself: Sony DSC-RX100 digital camera (1st generation in this series): https://amzn.to/2wl4RSu Sony DSC-RX100 II digital camera (2nd generation in this series): https://amzn.to/2N6CCyi Crane-M camera stabilizer: https://amzn.to/2NaIBSR GoPro Hero 5 camera: https://amzn.to/2PrPhNP DJI Mavic Pro (drone): https://amzn.to/2Bz8nP7 I actually found good prices on Amazon for the Coast lights. So, it is no longer necessary to call the company directly. Coast HP550 (the handheld flashlight I used up until this season): https://amzn.to/2OXmQGB Coast HP10R (the rechargeable handheld flashlight I am now using): https://amzn.to/2nXnmJ2 Fenix HP30R (the rechargeable light on my helmet): https://amzn.to/2BBXyfe Petzl helmet: https://amzn.to/2o0b6ri Garmin 64s GPS: https://amzn.to/2Li6FS1 Motorola MS350R 2-way radios: https://amzn.to/2OYyYqN Anker PowerCore portable charger: https://amzn.to/2LfuEB2 Macurco O2 Meter: https://amzn.to/2LgXj8S BW Technologies H2S Monitor: https://amzn.to/2ByXXPu Chest Waders: https://amzn.to/2w0xll4 Bear Grylls insulated water bottle: https://amzn.to/2PvwMZ1 The topo maps app I talked about (for Android phones): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.atlogis.northamerica&hl=en Heckler & Koch https://www.heckler-koch.com/en.html ***** The machete was a custom job by Adit Addicts: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIXOU8aR7o50X6q2wQ0wbCQ I didn’t bother to include a link to the walking stick I use because any one will do. You can even literally use a stick. The bicycle gloves I purchased at Lidl for something like 6 euros. Any cheap bicycle gloves will do. Other stuff I didn’t include because it is so general, but that you should definitely bring on any mine exploring trip are things like sunscreen, a first aid kit and someone that knows what they are doing. The gear displayed in this video is what I use for exploring adits and inclined shafts. Vertical shafts, which require technical climbing equipment, are a different beast entirely and merit their own video focused on ropes, harnesses, etc. We’ll cover that at some point in the future. Certain situations call for equipment that we have just used once or twice like a ladder, a chainsaw (for clearing downed trees on an old road), extra gas cans for a trip to an exceptionally remote part of Nevada, etc. As these are essentially one-time deals, I didn’t include them, but I figured it was worth mentioning. Again, if there are any questions that are left unanswered by this video, please let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them. ***** #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

5 years to complete sinking the shafts at the new Bakubung Platinum Mine (big construction project)
 
03:57
It will take 5 years to complete sinking the shafts at the new Bakubung Platinum Mine. The deepest shaft is 1 kilometre down. The mine will be ready to begin extracting platinum in 2018. More about Bakubung: Wesizwe's core project is the Bakubung Platinum Mine (formerly known as the Frischgewaagd-Ledig project). The property consists of various portions of the farm Frischgewaagd 96 JQ and Ledig 909 JQ. These two farms are located directly south of the Pilanesberg complex. The project site is situated directly adjacent to the western side of the Royal Bafokeng Platinum Styldrift project and immediately north of Maseve's Project 1, owned in partnership with Canadian group Platinum Group Metals (PTM). These properties are all located on the Western Limb of the mineral-rich Bushveld Igneous Complex in the North West province of South Africa. The Bakubung Platinum Mine will comprise of an underground mine with a twin vertical shaft system - a main shaft and a ventilation shaft which will also function as the second escape route -- and a process plant. The main shaft is planned to have a hoisting capacity of 230 000 tonnes of ore plus 40 000 tonnes of waste per month. Initially the Merensky Reef ore will be mined at the rate of 180 000 tonnes and the UG2 ore will make up the balance of 50 000 tonnes per month. Once the Merensky has been depleted, the full 230 000 tonnes will be generated from UG2 ore. It is anticipated that the annual 4E (3 PGM + Au) production during steady state be around 350 000 ounces. The Merensky Reef will be mined using conventional stoping methods and the UG2 using semi-mechanised methods, also known as hybrid methods. Crushing will be done underground from where the reefs will be separately conveyed to stockpiles at the concentrator plant. The concentrator design has emanated from the results of the test work conducted during the bankable feasibility study and is based on a standard PGM plant layout. Options for collaboration in developing a joint concentrator plant with neighbours Maseve are being investigated to exploit benefits from economies of scale and sharing capital infrastructure costs.

What is Deep Sea Mining? A web series. Episode 1: Tools for Ocean Literacy
 
06:45
Inhabitants is an online video for exploratory video and documentary reporting. Follow us: Website: http://inhabitants-tv.org/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/inhabitantstv/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt0fB6C18nwzRwdudiC8sGg What is Deep Sea Mining? is a five episode webseries dedicated to the topic of deep sea mining, a new frontier of resource extraction at the bottom of the ocean, set to begin in the next few years. Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted. The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century. This webseries addresses different issues related to this process, from resource politics to ocean governance by international bodies, prompting today’s shift towards a "blue economy" but also efforts to defend sustained ocean literacy when the deep ocean, its species, and resources remain largely unmapped and unstudied. Episode 1: Tools for Ocean Literacy is a cartographical survey of technologies that have contributed to ocean literacy and seabed mapping. Structured around a single shot along a vertical axis, the episode inquires about deep sea mining and the types of geologic formations where it is set to occur, particularly hydrothermal vents. Understanding the process of deep sea mining demands not only a temporal investigation – its main dates, legal, and corporate landmarks, and scientific breakthroughs – but also a spatial axis connecting the seafloor to outer space cartographic technologies. After all, we know less about the ocean depths than about the universe beyond this blue planet. What is Deep Sea Mining? is developed in collaboration with Margarida Mendes, curator and activist from Lisbon, Portugal, and founding member of Oceano Livre environmental movement against deep sea mining. It was commissioned and funded by TBA21 - Academy and premiered at the 2018 New Museum Triennial: Songs for Sabotage.

An abandoned mine shaft in the Walhalla gold belt area.
 
01:05:10
Hi guys, the journey into the depths of a very large scale mine in the Walhalla gold belt. If you've ever wondered just how far we go into the earth and have a spare hour I highly recommend a watch."Darkness surrounds you, the only source of light available to you is secured to your forehead. It is cold, there are puddles underfoot and slime on the walls, the trek forwards seems endless, yet you have dropped over one hundred meters from the dense bush above to penetrate deep into this subterranean labyrinth. You hear creaks and unidentifiable sounds echoing through the stone chamber as you steadily make your way forwards through the quartz lined walls, underneath the stulls and over rusty pickaxes. Your light beam hits a reef and you see flickers of minerals, perhaps gold, most likely just iron pyrite, it adds to the eerie mystical charm of the underground chamber and increase your sense of adventure. You’re in an underground maze of tunnels with the nearest exit made via a rope and an ascension rig. Does this sound like a dream, or a nightmare? Meet the blokes who do this for fun, who thrive on the adrenaline and the fear, who wake up with shivers at the thought of abseiling down mine shafts, penetrating their depths and exploring their vast passages in search of the unknown. The gold around your ring finger; the oil in your engine; the metal in your coins; the ancient pickaxe in your local museum; what do these have in common? Each was, at some point in time, discovered in a mine. The Victorian Historical Mineshaft Chasers follow the myths left by long gone miners, plot their escapades via geological topographical maps, and follow the markings left by the men who cut these mountains open. The puddles can be waist high, the dangers are numerous, challenging and very real, but the sense of accomplishment and the addiction to the thrill is what keeps them diving. Made up of amateur history buffs, prospectors, miners, photographers, and men from all walks of life, The Victorian Historical Mine shaft Chasers Inc host members aged from their young teen years to upwards of 45. A shared wealth of knowledge and experience keeps them safe, and allows them to continue to pass on the information gleamed from both verbal and experienced lessons, and their contribution to the preservation of times past is a bright glimmer in a society which is slowly allowing history to fade. Welcome to the mines, we hope you enjoy the dive… "
A Return To The Lower Levels Of The Abandoned Black Diamond Mine
 
20:57
The Black Diamond Mine - one of the oldest mines in the region - is so old that its early history has been mostly lost to time. However, it is believed that the site was originally discovered by a group of Chilean miners. It has a fairly unique structure in that it is a vertical shaft plunging down into the Black Diamond Ridge and four separate and distinct tunnels intersect with the shaft at varying levels down the face of the ridge. Picture an "E" with an extra leg sticking out and you'll have the rough idea. To see the first visit to this site and the upper levels of the mine, follow the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDSCwI03O5M

TechKnow - Deep sea gold rush
 
23:43
Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years. What is the future of seabed mining? And what are the consequences of seabed mining for the marine ecosystems? Can science and industry co-exist and work together on viable and sustainable solutions? - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check out our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Gold-Rich & High: Quartz Vein To The Sky
 
29:16
I struggled to come up with a descriptive title for this video. How to explain that incredible quartz vein – narrow, pure and running up so high that it went out of sight – that the gold miners chased? To me, it really did seem as if it ran to the sky… I have seen where miners have chased rich veins of quartz for impressive distances before, but I have never seen a quartz vein that was a solid slab running vertically to the heights that this one did. Another differentiating factor is that this vein must have been full of gold. One sees sections of quartz in many lode gold mines, but it is barren and so the miners leave it behind. This was different. In this mine, the miners cleared the whole vein out! Consider the – not one, but two – stamp mills outside, consider the effort the miners expended to reach that quartz vein and then to chase it up (the miners would have been drilling overhead the entire time in a space not much more than three feet wide), consider the expensive rail in this mine… The old timers were not stupid. They would not have spent that much money, they would not have done that much work and they would not have taken out that much quartz unless the gold to be found in that incredible quartz vein was worth it. And remember, that quartz vein was the only part of the mine where the miners took any ore out. Yet, they still required two stamp mills! I did not locate production numbers for this mine, but one can only imagine what was taken out. I don’t know how the miners discovered this deposit, especially as they located it before modern drilling and other technology the miners of today have at their disposal. I hiked down from the direction this mine runs and there was no sign of that quartz deposit on the surface. There were the remains of even older mining operations on the way down – the faint remains of a stamp mill, bits of metal, some surface work - and so maybe the miners had an inkling there was something below, but I don’t know what gave them the confidence to start blasting back for thousands of feet in a perfectly straight line. That was a major effort! Abandoned mining equipment is always interesting to me, but I was even more taken with the equipment at the outside of this mine as I had not heard of either of those companies – Krogh Manufacturing and Globe Iron Works – before. Usually, one will start to recognize the familiar names like Ingersoll Rand or Miners Foundry, but those names were new to me and, therefore, presumably older. The dates of the patents would seem to confirm this. The oxygen meter I was using at the time I explored this mine would alert when oxygen levels fell below 19.5%. However, it did not display what the actual percentage of oxygen was. Lower levels of oxygen are tolerable, but not MUCH lower levels. Without knowing what the actual percentage of oxygen was, I had to just judge the oxygen levels and safety by the symptoms I was experiencing. That’s pushing it a bit, but you’ve got to want it to see the treasures in life. I was alone on this trip, but with bad air it hardly matters if you are one person or a hundred. If you collapse from bad air, the guy behind you can’t grab you or he’ll succumb too. You’re done. It’s not like falling and breaking your leg or something where having someone else there will make a difference. So, it is important to pay close attention to the symptoms... With this particular oxygen meter it would stop working after alerting and being reset several times in the low O2 environment. Fortunately, the O2 meter I use now shows the exact percentage of oxygen so I can make a more informed decision on whether to proceed or not. In this mine, the low oxygen was almost certainly caused by the rotting timbers. I am glad that I didn’t turn around. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

Finding Flowstone, Crystals, and Relics in a Follow-Up Exploration of the Silver Reef Mine
 
10:01
After another long drive up through Nevada, I returned to the Silver Reef Mine with Tony, Shawn, and Ashley so that we could explore the upper and lower levels that I skipped over on my initial solo visit. Shawn descended one steeply inclined, curved winze to find tunnels leading to several small, slightly flooded chambers full of old bottles. We all ascended an inclined, 400-foot ladder system in the mine which led to an unbelievably large, vertical stope. In the stope, we found more ladders going upwards for hundreds of feet to unknown heights! Shawn ascended one such ladder and found himself in a remote part of the stope that hadn't seen foot traffic in decades. While there, he found an old, metal ore bucket. It seemed that this part of the mine intersected with a complex, natural cave because we found colorful flowstone formations and crystals in the mine. After spending five hours exploring and documenting the mine, we exited the tunnels and began the long, long drive back down through Nevada and into California to our respective homes. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

Secret Miner’s Cabin & Mines In The Sierra Nevada  - Part 2
 
11:30
With this second video, we climb up the side of the canyon above the historic miner’s cabin. These are just some of the gold mines on this claim… The early miners were very busy in this canyon and evidence of their work is all over the place. Some of this evidence is just unusual divots in the earth or stacks of rocks and other times one can find old bottles or bits of metal. However, we also found the remains of a tram system and there are other mining equipment treasures scattered around that the claim owner has discovered over the years. And then, of course, there are the mines themselves. I wonder how many are covering these canyon walls that have eroded shut and have been lost to history? Given how steep this canyon is, the tram system was not a surprise, but it is still an impressive level of sophistication for a mining area that is completely off the radar now. Waste rock would have just been dumped in front of the adit, but presumably the gold ore was trammed down to that stamp mill we saw in the first video for processing. We had to drop down into the first adit that you’ll see in this video, but that is not the way the miner’s accessed this claim. Where we were standing looking back at the large mound of dirt obstructing the portal was the original floor level of this mine, but the portal has almost completely filled in with dirt since the miners were last busy here. We are fortunate that it is open at all. Completely obscured by that mound of dirt is another drift that took off to the right (from the perspective of facing the portal). We suspected something was back there based on the shape of the adit and so, as I was crawling out of the mine, I squeezed over to that side and there was a small gap where I could see into the short drift there. It didn’t run back that far and, in fact, I could see the end of it from where I was sprawled out on the mound of dirt. There weren’t any mining artifacts or anything like that inside. The rumored ore cart in that lower drift level was quite interesting to me though! Unfortunately, that was a particularly sketchy section of the mine. Those huge slabs around the side of that winze were very precariously balanced there and, as you saw, that winze goes vertical before reaching the next level. I would love to go back with proper gear to be able to get down to that level, but it would be sporty. The last adit – again, completely different from the others – had the most amount of visible quartz, but it presumably was not particularly rich or it would have been a lot bigger. That adit seemed more exploratory in nature given how the miners were meandering off in different directions inside. They obviously did not run out of quartz. So, the gold content must have been too low to justify pursuing it. There were some nice crystals in there though! Thank you again to the claim owner and his dog, Shade, for sharing this site with us. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

The Rockefeller Mine and Mining Camp
 
04:28
Last year, I found myself wandering around the abandoned Rockefeller Mine and mining camp on an extremely windy afternoon. Talc was mined at the Rockefeller Mine, and the site is marked with a collapsed trestle, a rickety ore bin that's on the verge of collapse, a deep vertical shaft, and a tunnel. The nearby mining camp has some stone ruins, artifacts, one of the largest can dumps I have ever seen at an abandoned mine, and a homemade, metal dragon that stands guard over the entire mine site! #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration
Final Exploration of the Black Metal Shaft

The Black Metal Mine's inclined shaft ends at a nine-foot deep pit that is crossed by walking on sketchy planks placed over the pit. Beyond the pit is a tunnel leading into the horizontal workings of the mine. Paul and I descended the shaft, crossed the pit safely, and explored the Black Metal Shaft's workings. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

Central Asia Metals SASA Mine, North Macedonia (April 2019 - ENGLISH)
 
01:48
CAML took 100% ownership of the Sasa underground zinc-lead mine in November 2017. The mine is located in north eastern North Macedonia, approximately 150km east of the capital city, Skopje, and 10km north of local town, Makedonska Kamenica. The Sasa deposit was discovered during a period of exploration between 1954 and 1965. Trial mining commenced in 1965 and, in 1966, the mine commenced commercial production as a state-owned entity. The mine closed in 2002 and was placed into bankruptcy due to lack of funding. The Solway Investments Group subsequently purchased the mine, invested in new equipment and operations resumed in 2006. Solway Group later sold the mine to Fusion Capital and Orion Mine Finance Group in 2015. Sasa lies within the Serbo-Macedonian Massif, which hosts a large number of lead and zinc deposits and extends through Serbia, North Macedonia, Bulgaria, eastern Greece and into Turkey. The mine’s Svinja Reka and Golema Reka deposits are located on the eastern flank of a copper molybdenum porphyry deposit at Osogovo. Mineralisation occurs as stratiform deposits hosted predominantly by schists and marbles at Svinja Reka and by gneisses at Golema Reka. Hydrothermal fluids and bedding parallel faulting are responsible for the metasomatism of the host sediments that produce the skarn and base metal mineralisation. The deposits are well defined lenses of lead zinc silver mineralisation, which dip at about 35 degrees and range in thickness from 2 metres to 30 metres.

Exploring an Abandoned Mine Near Acton, California
 
07:47
Los Angeles County Mines #9: Come join me as I explore an abandoned mine located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, just south of Acton, California. The main adit for this mine is a crosscut that extends for about 250 to 300 ft. It has a bat gate at the portal, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it cut open. It appears that the miners were attempting to tap into a quartz vein that surfaces about 100 ft. above the canyon floor, but they were unsuccessful in doing so. A prospect is dug into this quartz vein above the adit. Just across the canyon from adit are the remains of a structure that probably served as the living quarters for the miners. Within the metal debris is a small winch that has a tripod base. Also in the debris field is an old fridge manufactured by Servel Electrolux. Servel Electrolux manufactured gas refrigerators from 1927 to 1956. Just up the road from the cabin is a 20 ft tunnel with a concrete and metal doorway. It’s possible that it was just a prospect but I personally think it was created for dynamite storage. At mine sites, it is not unusual to find explosive bunkers dug into the rock. No matter how much research I do, I can’t seem to find any definitive references to this operation. If I had to guess, this mine was in operation from the late 40’s to the early 50’s, based on the artifacts on site. The California Office of Mine Reclamation lists an Arrastre Canyon Mine in their inventory for Los Angeles County. It is certainly possible that the mine I explored is this mine. However, if it is, I do not think it is the actual name, but rather a dubbing as the agency might not know the real name either.
Exploring Abandoned Iron Mine near Spec, Virginia
 
12:00
Spec Iron Mine: A place that practically no one knows about, is not on any trails and not even found on any maps...sounds like the perfect spot for Smell N Roses to check out. After spending hours studying topographic maps and aerial photos, I finally felt confident that I had pinpointed the location of the old mine. It was time to go have a look. Thanks for watching!!! Specular Hematite...a mineral commonly found in iron ore that gives the tiny mining community its name. Spec is located in the James River valley on the west side of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Botetourt County, Virginia. In the 1920s, a roaring mining town began to grow here, as Pulaski Iron Company built and operated the Spec Iron Mine. Hundreds of people once lived and worked here, as electric trains carried miners and ore up and down the mountain from the hand dug mine to the processing facility. The mine went bust during the Great Depression, and the local economy soon dried up as well. Today, the town of Spec is little more than a few homes and some farms. Little evidence remains of the mining operations. About 3 miles and 2000 feet up the mountain, hidden away in a steep and rugged hollow, the actual mine is still there for those willing put in the effort to find it, and then get there. Warning: NEVER explore caves or mines alone. Since this adventure was too dangerous to undertake solo, I called up some friends to join me on this adventure. I met up with my friends David (Gadget's Adventures, link below) and Anthony, who had actually visited the mine before. On a cold rainy and foggy morning, we all met up on the Blue Ridge Parkway and made our way down the hollow to the mine. This was a very short hike, less than four miles round trip, but the majority of the route was off trail, in very steep terrain. At one point we dropped about 800 feet of elevation in only about a half mile distance. Let's just say it was steep! Once arriving to the mine site, we observed a couple of decaying brick structures, some old tanks laying around, and several addits in the side of the hill. The primary mine shaft extends into the mountain about 1/4 to 1/3 of a mile, and is as much as 400+ feet (vertical distance) below the mountain surface at its deepest point. The main mine contains at least four levels; however, without specialized equipment we were unable to safely reach beyond a small section of the second level. The mines were partially flooded, strewn with debris, and we felt as if the ceiling could collapse at any moment. After exploring the various tunnels, it was time to make the grueling climb back up the mountain to the Parkway.

Underground Training Systems - Introduction to Underground Mining
 
02:59
Underground Training Systems (UTS) has been set up to offer courses in hardrock underground mining (Gold, Nickel, Copper, Diamonds and many other base metals, excluding coal). Each course has been developed using our company Core Values and Positive Tips for Safety in a Hazardous Workplace . All courses are presented by a consultant that has a W.A shift boss ticket and more than 15 years practical underground mining experience. This gives the course participants a unique opportunity to ask questions and receive experienced answers about all different aspects of mining life. The jobs are Australia wide and there are roughly 23,000 hard rock miners within the Australian industry. The W.A. the Mines Department has estimated that between 10%-15% of these workers leave the industry every year. That works out to be 2300 to 3450 people that leave the industry every year (for a number of reasons) that need to be replaced. These entry level positions are filled with new starters that are commonly referred to as Green . This is where UTS Introduction to Underground Mining course has given employers the opportunity to employ people that have the knowledge of how an underground mine works and the entry level skills that they will be required to be performed. This allows a UTS graduate to become a useful member of an underground crew in 4-7 days of being on site. Entry level jobs covered include dump truck operator, nipper, drillers offsider and service crew member . By completing Introduction to Underground Mining over three days you will have the knowledge for us to present your resume to the relevant mining companies for entry level positions as part of our Placement Program . This program has been designed to give you the best possible chance to "get your foot in the door" and helpful staff who will start the employment process once you enrol.

Reasonable Prediction of Mineralization
 
01:01
http://picasaweb.google.com/Scheqky.Goldsprings/NEWPROCESSINGEQUIPMENTMARCH062009GOLDSPRINGINC# The beginning of questions after the Geology and Scientific Visualization software Presentation in the afternoon of the October 11, 2008 Goldspring BBQ and Open House of Precious Metal exploration, processing facilities and administration building. Please watch this video series, "Geology and Exploration", concurrent with another window open to the graphic images that can be downloaded from SEC's EDGAR on-line database http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1120970/000114420408057210/v128715_ex99-2.htm (To be part of the redundant database we should download and/or print vital docs of Goldspring as a back-up to discontinued use of internet information.) Q1: "How are you controlling faults, just strictly by the drill cuttings when you are drilling?" (Controlling as meaning how are they mapped) - question raised by a senior, distinguished geophyist of whom I had the pleasure of listening to more astute information during the apres Open House meeting in a nice, large hotel meeting area uphill in Virginia City after the 2008 Open House of GSPG.OB's Precious Metal Mining Property and Processing facilities in the Nevada Comstock Mining District, largest silver vein in the USA and one of the richest silver lodes in the world. A1: Scott, Goldspring Inc. geologist: Coordinate sub-surface geology with something matching on the surface. The big Wedge that sticks out is an East-West (E-W) fault and a Northeast (NE) fault. Both exist on the surface, giving credence to the underground preening(?) method indicating how the sub-surface topography was created. This is a reason for confidence in the Goldspring Theory of how the local geology was created. Included in the Goldspring Theory is a model depicting blocks of historic mineralization dislocated by many tens of feet by vertical slip faults. The abrupt endings of ores in faces of country rock beguiled the 1800s Comstock miners, causing them to give up mining a claim. Today, we can now see that the historic precious mineral mineralization, lodes and veins probably continue in geological blocks that are many feet deeper having been dislocated eons ago along vertical shear planes. The strategy of preliminary exploratory drilling is yielding data of geology in 5 foot layers that has been digitized and assembled into a computer based Graphic Information System. The underground mapping of rock compositions and Au-Ag mineralization is a great tool to create a Master Plan of Mining, systematic and most efficient, greatly contrasting to the 1800s trial and error mining - "luck". Data from many drill holes continues to support the subterranean concept model formulated by Goldspring Inc. Reasonably accurate prediction of Mineralization of many recent holes was known in advance of a core drilling due to the recently developed Goldspring Exploration Model (GEM). GEM will be used by TechBase-Mike Norrad to create a virtual Mining Model, an important component of a comprehensive National Instrument 43-101 regulatory filing. Mike Norrad is President & Founder of Techbase, a computer software service in Colorado, providing 3-D Scientific Visualization and Prediction of Geological Mineral Resources worldwide to the Mining Industry for twenty four years. Summary from Afternoon QnA GIS: computer based Graphic Information System that links data records with their X,Y,Z location in a virtual 3-D world. Records of data can be selected to cross reference with other aspects of the database to produce reports whether numeric matrices, diagramatic or graphic. Graphic presentations using varieties of color and shades mapped on unique 3-D forms depict the probability of varying densities of mineralization and other geological features to the horizontal extents and depths of exploration and historical records. Prior to the reports, the raw core drill assay data is processed by computational power running through five different algorithms. Further computer analysis correlates where different algorithms yield similar results for the same block of subterra. (Refer to the 10-11-2008 BBQ Telesco Report definition and quantity of assay blocks.) http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1120970/000114420408057210/v128715_ex99-1.htm The variety of algorithms increase the probability of reasonable interpolation of the density of materials at any given block in the soil in between slender cylinders of core drill data. Computer hardware and software interpolate the transformations of material gradation from one factual assay point to another factual assay point many feet away.

Investors are returning to Bosnia's mines
 
04:54
(8 Oct 2018) LEADIN The town of Vares, deep in central Bosnia, had long been a mining town, until the Bosnian war crippled the local economy. But investors are returning and old stories of gold hidden in the hills are encouraging locals to hope for a more prosperous future. STORYLINE : For centuries, the central Bosnian town of Vares has been a thriving mining community, making good use of its rich mineral deposits. But its lead, barite and zinc mines and its steelworks were shut down on the eve of the country's brutal 1992-95 war. They were subsequently badly damaged during the conflict. The mountain town has never recovered. Over the past two decades, it lost two thirds of its pre-war population, but the remaining 9,000 residents of Vares are now abuzz with the talk of a "golden" future.   "There is gold in Vares and I am talking about significant gold deposits, we also have silver (deposits) and (deposits of) all other precious metals," Vares resident Katarina Duvanjic excitedly declared, echoing the prevailing sentiment in the town where everybody now appears to be talking of gold. "Yes, there are traces in the mud. You can find traces in the mud. I can't tell if it is gold or copper, but we find it, small fragments, small spots, in the mud," interjects her friend Mirjana Dovadzija. For many generations, Vares's residents believed that the high mountains that surround their town are hiding in their depths, alongside the long-explored base metals, substantial quantities of gold and silver, but that those were never properly looked for due to high cost and administrative obstacles. But then in 2012, the UK company Adriatic Metals Ltd, was granted exploration concession of three polymetallic fields outside Vares, with varying degrees of historic exploration and exploitation of lead, zinc and barite. Its fully owned Bosnian subsidiary, Eastern Mining, began drilling probes in 2017 and the initial results from some of the holes at its Rupice site, announced in June, confirmed the presence of a diverse cocktail of high-grade minerals - including copper, silver and gold - which warrants further exploration. The company has since submitted a request for a major land expansion to its existing concession agreement. Eastern Mining director, Milos Bosnjakovic, says the company's primary hope is to confirm the presence of commercially viable deposits of lead, zinc and barite, but that it is clearly also "keeping an eye" on possible reserves of precious metals. "The results for gold and silver from some of the probe holes are, I would not say significant, but definitely worthy of attention," Bosnjakovic adds. "In order to one day consider separation of gold, we would have to prove the existence of significant quantities…but I would be lying if I said that it was not something we are hoping for." The cautious optimism of the UK-based, ASX-listed concession-holding company and its stated focus on base metals is not dampening the hopes of Vares's people, fed by the city's lore of gold. "There are already some new people in town, about 10 of them, they are going up there and digging. They are doing something, drilling, and they already employed about 10 local people," says another Vares resident, Dario Marjancevic. Zdravko Marosevic, the mayor of Vares, is also optimistic, insisting that historic records - including some from before World War I when Bosnia was under the sway of the Austro-Hungarian empire - confirm Vares is rich in mineral deposits.

Premier Announces Voisey’s Bay Underground Mine
 
26:13
Yesterday at an event in St. John’s, the Honourable Dwight Ball, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, announced that the construction of the Voisey’s Bay underground mine will proceed this summer. Premier Ball was joined at the announcement by the Honourable Siobhan Coady, Minister of Natural Resources, and Eduardo Bartolomeo, Executive Director Base Metals, Vale. First ore production from the underground mine is expected no later than April 2021 and provides for continuity of operations at the Long Harbour processing plant. The initial announcement that the Voisey’s Bay Project would proceed occurred 16 years ago on June 11, 2002. Since construction began at Voisey’s Bay, the project has generated some 35,000 person years of employment. Mining operations began in 2005 and approximately $15 billion of nickel, copper and cobalt has been recovered. Newfoundland and Labrador’s mining industry is a significant contributor to the provincial economy. In 2018, the mining industry is forecasted to employ 6,000 people and have $3.4 billion in mineral shipments.

Philex Mining Corporation. #WhyMining   Mike Toledo
 
14:17
www.mechaplan.com Padcal Padcal mine, which Philex Mining Corp. has been operating since 1958, is the first underground block cave operation in the Far East. It produces copper concentrates containing copper, gold, and silver. A majority of the copper concentrates are shipped to Saganoseki, Japan, for smelting by Pan Pacific Copper Company Limited, a joint venture between Nippon Mining Co. Ltd. and Mitsui Mining and Smelting Co. Ltd. The Padcal mine is under 12 mineral holdings, with an aggregate 95 hectares in Benguet province which are subject to royalty agreements with claim owners. Exploration activities in Padcal and its vicinity were pursued in three areas in 2011: the Sto. Tomas II orebody, which is below 773 meter level (ML), Bumolo, and in Southwest prospects. The Sto. Tomas II orebody is covered by the Mineral Production Sharing Agreement (MPSA) 276-2009-CAR, or Cordillera Administrative Region. The Bumolo and Southwest prospects are within MPSA 156-2000-CAR. Within the Sto. Tomas II orebody, underground diamond drilling was continued at 773 ML which aimed to explore the vertical extension of the orebody. An additional 10 holes were drilled in 2010 for an aggregate meterage of 4,802 meters. This meterage and those in the previous two years resulted in the definition of a significant volume of mineral resource between 600 ML and 782 ML that could potentially extend the mine life of Padcal beyond 2020. In Bumolo prospect, located northeast of the Sto. Tomas II orebody, the target drilling--started in 2010 to investigate the soil geochemical anomaly--was followed by the completion of three additional holes with an aggregate meterage of 1,286 meters. The drill holes intersected intrusive bodies with lower grade mineralization that appears to have diluted an originally good grade deposit delineated earlier near the surface. Good grade mineralization thus appears to be limited near the surface of the prospect. A modest mineral resource tonnage maybe realized from the prospect when the ongoing estimation is completed. The southwest prospect lies less than a kilometer from the Sto. Tomas II orebody. A breccia body, which was identified as a diatreme breccia, was confirmed after the old drill cores were reviewed and relogged in 2011. Gold and copper mineralization was validated after the old drill cores were re-assayed. Limited mapping and sampling was conducted in 2010 due to community issues. Pending the resolution of access to the property, the company decided to drive an underground exploration tunnel at 908 ML leading to the prospect. The tunnel reached 300 meters and a drilling pad was constructed near its face. The first of a number of exploration holes was collared in that pad and reached 148.5 meters depth as of Dec. 31, 2011. Drilling intercepted a breccia body with marginal grade of gold and copper. Two other prospects--Clifton and Bumolo 2--that were lined up for investigation in 2011 did not materialize. The social license for Clifton has been stalled as the communities raised new demands and the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) suspended the Free and Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) pending the issuance of a new guideline. Bumolo 2, located northeast of the Sto. Tomas II orebody, similarly became inaccessible to the exploration team because of overlapping claims among surface owners. Only limited stream sediment sampling in a small area outside of the known target was allowed. www.mechaplan.com

Urban exploration: Abandoned mine (BC, Canada)
 
30:14
I apologize for the salty language. Spooky ghost at 7:50 I do not advocate trespassing or illegal activity. Urban exploration is dangerous and not for the physically weak/under-prepared. I will not be disclosing the location of this site. Parts of this site are still active. If you are aware of the location please refrain from posting it in the comments. The electrical room is still active because it is powering a new crushing/sorting facility that is nearby.
