Filmed on 3-12-17. Sean, and I took to the open road. Driving up the 95 freeway out of Las Vegas towards Reno. We show you where Yucca Mountain is, and where the government has been dumping nuclear waste since the 40's. Then bring you through two mining towns that have produced billions in gold. This trip is to show the areas that most people in Nevada don't even know exist. Please watch the next few videos to see some of the top gold producing areas in the world. Please enjoy, and thank you for watching. CHRISTIAN
Tonopah, Nevada The Queen of all Mining Towns
 
12:56
Tonopah is still a mining town. Most of the residents work at nearby silver, and gold mines. The Mizpah Hotel has very large safes in the basement where they would keep silver from the Mizpah Claim. The huge safes were made of thick steel, but built on the dirt. Not a good idea in a town full of miners. A group of miners dug a tunnel to the inside of the safes, and made off with thousands of dollars in silver.

Ghost Towns of the American Gold Rush - 4576
 
54:12
#ghosttowns #goldrush #gold The wildest and fastest American era that ever was... Men left their homes, wives, children, and their jobs, and raced West in a mad rush to find a pot-of-gold at the end of the rainbow. Towns sprang up overnight, along with banks, general stores, boarding houses, saloons, all of which were filled with prospectors, hustlers, gamblers, and outlaws. Some came to mine gold. Others came to mine the miners. Men and women lived fast, full, often reckless lives, and when rumors of new strikes arose, many picked up their stakes and moved on with the possibility of a better tomorrow someplace else. Left behind in their wake were empty buildings and silent streets. This documentary brings to life eleven ghost towns. Some are completely deserted, while others are actually still alive, though, they are operating as unique places that people can visit and witness what a ghost town was like back in the 19th century. It is all here; a collection of anecdotes and history of America's past, gone but never forgotten. A few towns even allow visitors to pan for gold! Included Are: Coloma, CA Grass Valley, CA Murphys, CA Virginia City, NV Sutro, NV Bodie, CA Buckskin Joe, CO Lake City, CO Bannack, MT Vulture City, AZ Mogollon, NM

The Sylvania Mine Property, located in a remote area near the Nevada/California border, covers the old Bullion, 4 Aces and Sylvania Mines. The mine camp on the property has often been referred to as the “Ghost Town” Sylvania. But there was never any town of Sylvania, only the mine camp which was so expansive it had often been mistaken for an entire town. . . . . . Don't forget to check out our friends at TVR Exploring! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeD7ZrrrgGhkVhE5EIPrBwA They make a lot of rad videos exploring old, abandoned mines.

Gold mines in Goldfield, Nevada (SCARY DEEP) 20 mines found!!!
 
23:33
Filmed on 3-11-17. Sorry, but the first, and last part of the video got ruined. I dropped my camera, and broke it. Sean, and I take you through Goldfield mining district. This is just a fraction of the abandoned mines in Goldfield. Though some of the largest, and biggest producer's of gold in the world. We take right up close, and show you how close they are to each other. In 1906 Goldfield, Nevada had a population of around 30,000 residents. It was the most populated city in Nevada at the time. They were going to move the capital of Nevada to Goldfield. As the gold dwindled away so did the thought of making Goldfield the capital. Please enjoy, and thanks for watching. Christian
DELAMAR, NEVADA - GHOST TOWN 1893 - 1909 - 2
 
26:05
I was already in one of the most remote, if not the most remote, parts of Nevada. I then decided to take the 16 mile journey off of paved road onto gravel road. The first 10 miles on the gravel road were pretty smooth. The last 6 miles... well.... let's say I don't recommend taking a passenger car on this adventure. No doubt in my mind you should take an off road vehicle with 4 wheel drive. I am very lucky I did not get stuck or break down driving a Chevy Sonic rental to this ghost town. I was not able to explore the entire ghost town and mines due to the roads being more than rough. I was diving over large rocks, extremely rutted paths along steep mountain slope roads with barely enough clearance on the side for the car I was driving. It was rough, scary, treacherous to say the least! The photos will tell the rest of the story. I also made a video of Delamar which will be uploaded as well. Delamar, Nevada (originally named Ferguson) was founded in In 1891 by prospectors John and Olivia Ferguson when they discovered gold around Monkeywrench Wash. A mining camp was then born. In April 1893, Captain Joseph Raphael De Lamar bought most of the high producing gold mines in the area for a whopping $150,000 and renamed the Ferguson camp as Delamar. Also in the same year, a newspaper called the Delamar Lode began publication and a post office was opened. It wasn't long before the town had more than 1,500 residents. There soon came a hospital, churches, opera house, school, many businesses, saloons and a theater. Entertainment was mostly brass bands, dance orchestras, and stage attractions at the opera house. From what I could tell during my exploration there are many foundations left of what looked to be mine worker housing. It looked to be rows of "apartment" complexes. Several long rows of foundations containing about 10 rooms each going up the mountain slope. Most of the buildings were built from native rock found in the area. By 1896, the mill was moving upwards of 260 tons of ore daily. Water for the camp was pumped from a well in Meadow Valley Wash, 12 miles away.Supplies, food, and most other goods were transported over 150 miles by mule teams over mountainous terrain from the railroad at Milford, Utah. Most of the gold was hauled out by mule teams as well. Delamar had the nickname "The Widow-Maker". This was because of the dry drilling method used to separate the gold from the quartzite it was found in. The dry milling of quartzite created a fine silica dust, also known as "death dust" which contains particles of glass like rock. When this fine dust was breathed it most often caused mine workers as well as nearby residents to develop a disease of the lungs called silicosis. This resulted in death, hence the nickname "The Widow-maker". It is said that there were over 400 widows living in Delamar at one point. Delamar produced over $25,000,000 in gold during it's life. The town was abandoned in 1909 when gold production slowed to a halt. At the turn of the 12th century Delamar was the leading producer of gold. I have read that people did go back to Delamar in the 1930s to continue mining but it only lasted a mere 5 years, don't take my word for this though because I do not know if it is a fact.

Nelson Ghost Town, Nevada
 
26:54
**PLEASE NOTE** Nelson Ghost Town is its official name. It was abandoned for some time before being purchased by the present owners. Now it's used for movie and photo shoots. It is a tourist attraction, but it's the least commercialized as the others. The others I saw were completely rebuilt back to original state as well as roped off like a museum. This was the least touched out of them all, as stated in my narration in the beginning of the video. Exploring this place was a real pleasure. This ghost town is in South Nevada in Nelson, El Dorado Canyon. It was first named "El Dorado" by the Spaniards when they first discovered it in 1775. This ghost town used to be a thriving miners' town with 3 mines which operated from 1859 to 1945 at the end of World War II. It was one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada where they mined gold, silver, copper and lead yielding over $6 million. The town is made up of three (now abandoned) mines; Techatticup, Wall Street, and El Dorado Rand Group. The source of transportation for goods was by steamboat on the Colorado River just at the end of the road. Most of the miners here were deserters from the Civil War. The town and mines had a very bad reputation as it was a lawless community being so isolated from the Sheriff and civilization. There were many killings and feuds here, so much so that it was an ordinary occurance. The U.S. Army set up an outpost here in 1867 to protect the community and riverboats' freight from Native Americans. The army left the camp in 1869 and the mines thrived once again until the end of the war. The movie '3000 Miles to Graceland' with Kevin Costner and Kurt Russel used this area as part of their movie shoot where they blew up an airplane on-site. Remnants of the airplane were left behind and shown in this video.

The Ghost Town of Seven Troughs, Nevada
 
03:31
Gold was discovered in Seven Troughs Canyon early in 1905. In 1907, a boom ensued when assays of $100,000 a ton was revealed. Miners flocked in , many from the Tonopah and Goldfield areas. In this same year, a townsite was platted out. Regular freight wagons carried supplies to and from the railroad station at Lovelock. In 1911, the "Kindergarten Mill," a 50-ton cyanide processing plant, was built at the east end of the town. By the end of 1907, the townsite was comprised of a post office, several saloons, stores, and a population of around 350. Seven Troughs produced almost two millions dollars in gold between 1908 and 1921. The town prospered for nearly a decade, then began a rapid decline after 1918, when the ore was depleted. By the 1920s, Seven Troughs was abandoned.

The ruins of Aurora, Nevada
 
08:39
Preceded only by Virginia City and Gold Hill, Aurora is one of earliest and historically important mining camps in Nevada. Aurora was established in the fall of 1860 when Nevada was still part of the Utah Territory, and the town’s most important boom period occurred 150 years ago during the Civil War from 1861 to 1864.
An Unusual Gold Mine In Nevada
 
23:44
In this video, I endeavor to spare you, my dear viewers, from having to make the long drive to the middle of nowhere in Nevada (along with the associated costs for fuel and damage to your vehicle on the rough road in). In addition, you are able to avoid the relatively long, hot hike up to this abandoned mine. And, of course, you are also spared from needing to spend any time underground in this sketchy abandoned mine as well. Now don’t get me wrong, we (usually) enjoy this sort of thing, but most probably would not… The mineral potential of this area was first recognized in the mid-1800s and a town and mill sprang up around the areas in the canyon that looked most promising very shortly thereafter. However, no one appears to have gotten rich here and (as with countless mining towns) everything slowly faded away, interspersed with only brief flurries of activity when new discoveries or economic conditions temporarily brought miners out into the hills again. There are surprisingly few records available on this specific mine. Although it is mentioned that work took place here in the 1930s, the only years that we could find production data for were for two years in the 1940s. This was primarily a gold mine, but some silver was extracted here as well. The official production figures were not terribly inspiring, but it seems that contemporary mining companies still poke around this site from time to time – even in those small, fractured stopes underground as could be seen from the surveyor’s flags... Although samples have been taken, to my knowledge, no modern exploratory work has been conducted. My exploring buddy on this trip was Mines of the West: https://www.youtube.com/user/GramVideos95 ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 1
 
25:49
Consistent with its status as one of the biggest abandoned mines in Nevada, it requires a hike of thousands of feet and a significant elevation decline just to get down to where the underground workings really begin at this massive mine… As can be seen near the start of this video, there are twin portals and passages running parallel down to the underground workings. Our guess was that this was because one passage was for traffic entering the mine and the other for traffic departing the mine. Deep underneath the mountain, the passages converge on a main hub from which drifts branch out in all directions. At the heart of this hub is a breakroom and a large workshop. A large drift takes off to the right from the workshop, while to the left a drift meanders away and another passage descends deeper into the bowels of the mountain. In this first video, we explore the hub of the mine as well as the workings taking off to the left from the hub. Following the descending passage, we were eventually blocked by flooding as the mine workings continue deep beneath the water level inside of the mine. One can only imagine how many miles of workings are under those dark waters. Fortunately, the other main drift taking off to the left was on a slight upward incline and so the water drained down and (mostly) out. With the miles of underground workings at this abandoned mine stretching well into the double digits, one might expect there to be quite a lot of information available on this site. However, that is not the case. There is surprisingly little information to be found online and the various government agencies involved with this site have done a pretty thorough job of scrubbing references to it from their public databases. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Ghost towns - Virginia City, Nevada, USA
 
01:18
Virginia City is the best preserved ghost town in the American West. Located in the US state of Nevada, specifically in Storey County, the city of Virginia is a ghost town, although it feels very much alive. Virginia City is not only frozen in time, but this historic city offers one of the best-preserved examples of the numerous mining camps found in the western region of America. Following the gold rush era, Virginia City and nearby cities in Nevada became known as the richest gold strike site found in the Rocky Mountains region. During the first three years of gold mining, it is believed that an estimated $30 million worth of gold was extracted from the mine. By 1870s the population of the city was above 25,000 residents and was known as the richest city in the US, but by 2010 the city of Virginia only had about 855 residents. Currently, the city comprises of over 200 historic buildings preserved for tourists, and it also features several events including the Heritage Days & Victorian Ball held in August. In 1961, Virginia City was designated as a National Historic Landmark, and in 1976, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Pine Grove Ghost Town, Nevada
 
03:59
In 1866, gold-bearing rock was discovered in the area by William Wilson. Wheeler mine was established in the next year. Early settlers named the camp after the nearby Pine Grove Hills. By 1868, a post office had opened, along with a weekly newspaper. The population at the time was 200. Two steam-powered stamp mills were built along with three arrastras, which processed silver and gold ore. The camp reached its peak in population in the early 1870's with 600 residents. The settlement, at its height, was divided into five sections and was spread out for a mile. It offered five saloons, three hotels, multiple stores, blacksmith shops, a dance hall, barber shops, a school, livery stable and two doctors' offices. Pine Grove was a regional supply center Two mill expansions were made in 1882, and mining was robust in the 1880's. After the economic depression in the U.S. in 1893, mine production was slowly abandoned. https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/nevada/pine-grove-ghost-town-trail Pine Grove Ghost Town Trail is a 9.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Yerington, Nevada that offers scenic views and is rated as moderate.

Nevada's Forgotten Mining History:  Nelson Ghost Town
 
13:17
While there might be more than a few ghost towns in Nevada, Nelson has a history that trumps them all. Known as the first major find in Nevada in its prime the mines in this area were pumping out millions of dollars in Gold and Silver. It is said that gold still abounds in the Techatticup Mine just beyond the touch of safety thus never to be harvested. We explored the Ghost Town which has been preserved, the many vehicles which tell the story of time passing and then made our way to the Jubilee Mine where we did a little self discovery mission into the crags of the graffiti ridden tunnels.

Exploring Abandoned High School in Ghost Town of Goldfield, Nevada
 
05:00
Goldfield High School, opened in 1907, is an abandoned school in the desert town of Goldfield, Nevada. With a final graduating class of 1947 and final overall elementary class of 1953, the school has sat vacant for over 60 years. On this trip, we received a personal tour of the entire building from top to bottom. Classrooms, bathrooms, chemistry lab, teachers' lounge, principal's office, and even the principal's toilet. Currently there are restoration efforts underway to preserve the building and immortalize a valuable piece of history.

Secret Miner’s Cabin & Mines In The Sierra Nevada - Part 1
 
16:18
Probably less than a dozen people know about the historic miner’s cabin hidden away on this mining claim - and even fewer still know about the abundance of gold mines found here… It remains a secret because the people that do know where this is remain tight-lipped about it and this cabin and mines are located in an absolute black hole on topographic and other maps. There is simply nothing marked anywhere near here. With the contractors for the Forest Service, BLM, Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) programs, et al working overtime (with taxpayer money) to get all of these historic mines erased, it is very nice to be introduced to some gold mines that are not (currently) in danger of being permanently closed. It is a shame that we have to wallow in such secrecy simply to protect a historically significant site from the very entities that should be preserving it, but such is the upside down world we live in. The two adits featured in this video appear to be quite old. I was able to find a couple of references to the mines consolidated on this claim in mining journals dating back to the turn of the last century and they were described as already having been worked for a while at that time. So, initial work here probably dates back to around the time of California’s “Gold Rush” era. The earliest gold miners in California were placer miners. However, when the easy pickings from the surface were worked out, they became lode miners and headed underground to start chasing the veins where the gold in the creeks originated from (some underground miners also chased the rich placer left behind by ancient river channels that were buried millions of years ago). The little hole by the creek under the huge boulder would have been referred to as a “coyote hole” by the miners of the time. These were in abundance along the creeks and rivers of California in the early days as the miners pursued gold flakes and nuggets back into the rocks and gravel lining the waterways. So, it seems likely that the small adit we visited first would have been the one developed initially and then the larger adit punching into the hard rock would have come along later. In further support of the idea that these mines are older rather than newer is that, although it may possibly have been there at one point, there was no sign of rail at the mines we visited. The claim owner also stated that he has never seen any sign of rail here either. It is not difficult to imagine a swarm of miners crawling all over these canyon walls like ants during the “Gold Rush” era, churning up the creeks and digging out coyote holes. This initial surge of miners, however, would have been followed by a more patient, more sophisticated group of miners that had an eye on heading underground. At the second adit shown in this video, for example, you could have had something like a father and son team or two brothers slowly working away at that lode mine for years, chasing those quartz veins and hauling load after load of ore and waste rock out in wheelbarrows. I’m giving more of a general feel for the area with these videos rather than showing every single bit of mining history present as both sides of this canyon are covered in mines and the remains of mining equipment. We’ll see more of that in the next video. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 3
 
16:45
After following the drift we ended the last video with to its surprising conclusion, we started moving back toward the main hub of this enormous abandoned mine. Along the way, we explored many of the side passages and raises that were bypassed on the route in through the main haulage adit located in this part of the mine. Following the very long hike up and out of the mine, we set up our camp for the night (we spent all day underground in this mine) and then headed above the mine to see some of its more interesting features above ground. You’ll see that we explore some of the mine buildings, including one that has an amazing collection inside of it. Although I was curious about what was inside of the modern mine buildings we discovered, I also had a specific destination in mind. One of my exploring buddies – Adit Addicts – had spotted what appeared to be a steam shovel abandoned above the modern mine we explored in this video. I wanted to see this machine to confirm what it was and also to film it if it really did turn out to be a steam shovel. As with the mine itself, it was quite a hike up into the hills above it. Fortunately, I was able to find the machine (although the GPS took me on a terrible route to do so) and it was indeed a steam shovel. Sort of... It was a steam shovel at one time, but had actually been converted over to run on an internal combustion motor. I had never seen anything like that before and it was pretty amazing to see one out in the desert mountains still next to the pile of dirt it had been excavating decades ago. The modern abandoned mine featured in this video is definitely not the first mine in this area and when looking around above the mine, it was fairly common to see old collapsed adits and old surface mining work. Many of these seemed to be more exploratory in nature though. This area has historically been a large producer of ores containing lead, copper and silver and a thriving town was once supported by the mines. However, today, there is almost no trace left of the ghost town or an aerial tramway that also used to be here. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Keystone Gold Mining Claim - Nevada - 2017
 
13:12
The Keystone, located just outside of Winnemucca, Nevada, covers an astounding 80 acres of workings from the historic Keystone and Tamzy mines. The Keystone was first developed on a small scale in around 1870. The majority of the work was done from 1936 to 1940 when the mine was owned by the Jones Brothers, before it was shut down by the War Act.
Dover Gold Mining Claim - Nevada - 2017
 
05:17
The Dover Gold Mine, located outside of Hawthorne Nevada, is a sister mine to the Green Talc Gold Mine. The two mines are often referred to together in documentation as the Dover and Green Talc. Historically gold and copper were worked from what was initially reported as epithermal lode vein. Corundum or (sapphire) is noted and found in quantities in the lower levels.
Eldorado Canyon Nevada Ghost Town in Nelson Nevada
 
08:15
This is an old mining ghost town in Eldorado Canyon in Nelson Nevada. It is located about 45 minutes from Las Vegas. The mine opened in 1861 and stayed open until World War II. They mined gold and silver. The property is currently family owned. This is their collection of old cars and antiques from this era. It is free to walk the area and see all of the items. The Techatticup mine tour is not free but I recommend checking it out. Numerous movies, TV shows and videos were filmed here. One scene from 3000 miles to Graceland was filmed here with Kevin Costner.

Nevada's Abandoned Hughes Mine
 
09:32
Mines – abandoned or otherwise – almost always seem to present surprises for explorers… This lead and silver mine in the Nevada has a series of shafts running along the upper edge of the property. Some of these shafts are quite large and deep. So, when I came across an extremely large, modern adit leading toward this cluster of shafts, I assumed this was a haulage adit of sorts that tied into the shafts. I was mistaken. And, as my opening sentence implied, I was surprised by the reality of the large adit. This mine appears to have been worked over at least several decades. The mill building and headframe have been completely demolished and some of the shafts have decayed quite considerably. However, that adit was probably no older than the 1980s and the main shaft was in fairly decent shape and probably dates to around the time the adit was constructed. I am uncertain as to the age of the ore bin and I do not have enough experience with them to offer an intelligent guess. The ore bin ended up being probably my favorite thing about this mine site… Although, I was also taken by the number of jackrabbits (they are actually hares) and by the number of barrels of cyanide in the dry wash. I really wanted to provide some drone footage so we could see an overview of the site, but the controller just would not connect to the drone that day. Very frustrating. As I often say, technology is great when it works. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!
