Inside a Cursed Appalachian Mining Town
 
25:20
In the late 1800s, traveling preacher Robert Sheffey cursed the town of Ivanhoe, Virginia, after witnessing what one female resident describes as “houses of ill repute, fighting, drunkenness, and a rejection of his ministry by the townspeople.” Legend has it that Sheffey condemned the sinful town to sink into the earth and be consumed by the pits of hell. “Whether you believe in it or not, after that happened, we lost everything,” says the same Ivanhoe resident in this short documentary. “We have nothing.” Today, Ivanhoe is even plagued by sinkholes—multiple houses have disappeared entirely into the earth.

Exploring the Ghost Town of McIntyre, PA
 
20:39
We check out to the location of an abandoned coal mining town from the late 1800s. The coal company was created in 1870, being the first large scale mining operation in the area. The town grew up around the coal operation and housed a church, school, store, sawmill, shoe shop, and a town hall as well as 300 houses. Many of the buildings were torn apart for reuse and some are still used today as hunting cabins. The small coal town is now all but forgotten and only small bits of memories remain. We return to where it all started, in the mines, to reanimate the memories stored above and below the surface.

An empty town in California complete with a school, church, firehouse, stores, even a morgue! Traveling through California I stopped off at the incredible Redwoods! So amazing to see these giants in person. From there I went on to explore Bodie, an incredibly preserved town in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Bodie was a thriving mining town way back in the 1800's but as time went on it became less and less populated until the 1940's when it was all but abandoned. It was eventually taken over by the state, protected and preserved. Such a cool experience to walk around this place. What a time warp!

Here’s a small clip from my latest Adventure- The World Mining Museum in Butte, Montana. This is the old style houses, shops, brick work, and town set up from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Mining is and was such a big boom here and is a major part of Butte’s historic legacy. If Butte and it’s mines did not exist during this period- we would not have won world wars and have the luxury of electricity as we do now. Check out my Instagram- www.instagram.com/nerdyandperty

Calico an Old West Mining Town ( Ghost Town )
 
07:16
Calico is an old West mining town that has been around since 1881 during the largest silver strike in California. With its 500 mines, Calico produced over $20 million in silver ore over a 12-year span. When silver lost its value in the mid-1890's, Calico lost its population. The miner's packed up, loaded their mules and moved away abandoning the town that once gave them a good living. It became a "ghost town." Walter Knott purchased Calico in the 1950's architecturally restoring all but the five original buildings to look as they did in the 1880's. Calico received State Historical Landmark 782 and in 2005 was proclaimed by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California's Silver Rush Ghost Town. Today Calico is part of the San Bernardino County Regional Parks system visited by people from around the country and all over the world. The park offers visitors an opportunity to share in its rich history and enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding desert environment. Along with its history and attractions, Calico Ghost Town has shops, restaurants and offers camping and outdoor recreation not available at most of our other park facilities. Due to the historic nature of the town, not all areas are ADA accessible. CAUTION: Mines in the Calico area are extremely hazardous and must not be approached for any reason! Soundtrack..

Bodie CA, Late 1800's Ghost Town

This High Definition video was shot on a recent family vacation in Bodie California. A thriving community in the late 1800's, a Ghost Town today being "preserved" in place. With its rich history of gold mining, saloons, prostitution and two fires that almost destroyed the town, you can still walk around and get a sense of what life was like here. Its as though you were on the set of the movie High Noon or the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Watch this in HD if you can, its worth the additional time it takes to cache or download.

The key to freedom is to lower your expenses. In my former life, I managed a company that struggled to stay out of the red. This is where I learned to hone my frugality skills and use them to my own advantage by becoming a minimalist at home. The biggest expense we all have living in a sticks and bricks is our rent or mortgage. We work most of our adult lives to make a bank or landlord / landlady rich! With ever increasing real estate prices and stagnant wages the cost of living has skyrocketed. Many can barely make ends meet and live paycheck to paycheck. You can stop the madness by thinking outside the box and joining this growing movement of full-timers that enjoy van-dwelling or RV living. If you dream about a life of travel you can do it incredibly cheap just by downsizing your lifestyle into a RV or van "tiny house" and becoming mobile. In this series, I go from a home in the Los Angeles hills packed full of stuff and owning two cars to full-timing in a Roadtrek campervan in less than 6 months. I buy an old camper van on Craigslist and deck it out just like home with all kinds of technology to make life comfortable on the road. I hope to encourage those that think they "can't do it" by showing how it CAN be done by planning carefully and taking baby steps. #vanlife #silvercity #ghosttowns #travelvlog #camping #rv #hobotech #rvlife #campervans #roadtrek #productreviews ============================ THANKS FOR WATCHING!

Some video and pictures taken from the Calico ghost town in California. It was a active mining town in the late 1800's but a large portion of the population left when the price of silver dropped. Restored in 1951 by Walter Knott (Knott's Berry Farm), now a tourist attraction with campgrounds. There's a little something for everybody here. Fun to walk around and explore, take a train ride, pan for gold, visit numerous gift shops, restaurants, food stands, plus much more.

2012 Panamint City Silver Mining Town
 
18:16
Scott Spierling, Ryan McKinley & Kelly McKinley took a weekend trip and hiked up to the old silver mining town of Panamint. Panamint is located just south of Death Valley. Panamint came into being when Silver was discovered in the late 1800's. Remnants of the town are still evident in the form of stone cabins, and the brick & rock smelter. Access is solely by foot since the road washed away in the 1980's. Vegetation and the elements have reclaimed most of the trail which has made the 7 mile hike quite challenging. I was truly impressed with how much flowing water was in the canyon as well as plant growth. Many times the hike was more like the jungles of Asia than the high California Desert. I came away from the trip with a reminder of how tough and resilient our forefathers were. We hope to come back and stay a little longer so as to explore the area even more! Here is a wikipedia link for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panamint_City,_California Hope you enjoy the video!

Ghost Towns: Abandoned But Not Forgotten
 
03:35
These towns, often far off the beaten path and rooted in the mining industry, couldn't survive when the gold, silver, copper, and coal were gone. Check out the stories behind these boom-towns. For more stories --- http://allday.com/ Follow our twitter accounts --- https://twitter.com/historyinpics Follow our Instagram -- http://instagram.com/historyphotographed -- http://instagram.com/itsabandoned 1. Goldfield, Arizona Goldfield, Arizona, as the name suggests, was a gold town that thrived in the 1890s, but was abandoned by the late 1920s. Today, Goldfield has been reconstructed as a tourist stop, with a focus on kitsch rather than historical accuracy. Rhyolite, Nevada Rhyolite, Nevada was named for silica-rich volcanic rock in its corner of Death Valley, and saw significant investment from Charles M. Schwab in the early 20th century. By 1907, the town even had its own stock exchange, but its population dwindled in the years afterward. Terlingua, Texas Terlingua, Texas was built up around mercury mining in the mid-1880s, but was abandoned in the 1940s when production dwindled. Today, Terlingua is mostly a tourist destination for visitors to nearby Big Bend National Park. Bodie, California The town of Bodie, California was founded in 1859 and was once California's third-largest city behind San Francisco and Sacramento. The town closed in 1962 after the local gold mine stopped producing and has since become a attraction for tourists. Thurmond, West Virginia During the heyday of coal mining in West Virginia, Thurmond was a prosperous town, but its population dwindled into the single digits by the 2000s. Today, much of Thurmond is owned by the U.S. National Park Service. Calico, California Calico, California was a booming silver-mining town during the 1880s, but was totally abandoned by 1907. Calico underwent extensive restoration in the 1950s under the direction of Walter Knott, of Knott’s Berry Farm fame, and became a tourist attraction for the state. Thistle, Utah The primary industry was servicing steam trains for rail companies, and saw a decline during the switch-over to diesel engines. The real incident that killed the town, however, was a 1983 landslide that flooded the city. Much of it remains submerged today. Virginia City, Montana Virginia City, Montana was founded on gold mining in 1863, but the gold ran out by the end of the century and the town was abandoned. Today Virginia City is owned by the state of Montana, and serves as a tourist stop for travelers headed for Yellowstone National Park. Kennecott, Alaska The copper mine in Alaska produced $200 million worth of copper ore between 1911 and 1938, but was too remote to survive when the mine ran dry in the early 40s. Kennecott became a tourist landmark by the 1980s, and was designated a historic landmark. Written By: Shea Huffman Edited By: Charlie Benavides Image Credit: Getty Images Music: YouTube Music Library

Travel Guide New Mexico tm Ghost Towns New Mexico
 
08:58
The Land of Enchantment still echos with voices from its colorful past. These voices speak especially clearly from the ghost towns, mining camps, and little-known places that populate New Mexico's landscape. New Mexico's story is rich with history, from the Ancient Puebloan Indians, to Spanish explorers, pioneers traveling along the Santa Fe Trail, and prospectors in the 19th century. These many folks left their "footprints," not only along the many old trails in the "Land of Enchantment," but also on the many ruins and ghost towns that remain. Cuchillo, established by ranchers and farmers in the 1850s, was named for a nearby creek and a local Apache chief, Cuchillo Negro (Black Knife). Midway between the mines at Chloride and Winston and the railroad at Engle, it flourished as a stage stop and trade center from the 1880s to the 1930s. Charming original buildings still stand, including the Cuchillo Bar and Store, and San Jose Catholic Church, built in 1907 Chloride was founded in 1880. Englishman Harry Pye had discovered silver ore there in the late 1870s, and soon after Pye was killed by Apaches, word of the silver find got out. Despite the threat of Indian attacks Chloride grew to over 3,000 people. In its heyday it had nine saloons, a general store, a dry goods store, a millinery shop, a restaurant, a butcher shop, a candy store, a pharmacy, a Chinese laundry, a photography studio, a school, and two hotels. The Black Range newspaper was printed in Chloride from 1882 to 1896. Of the nearly 500 surveyed mines and prospect holes in the Apache Mining District, a dozen or so made big mines, including the Silver Monument, the U.S. Treasury, and the St. Cloud, which is still in operation, though not mining silver. The demise of Chloride began with the Silver Panic of 1893 and was hastened by the presidential election of 1896, which resulted in a drastic decline in silver prices. Many of Chloride's original structures still stand. The old Pioneer Store is now a museum; next door the former Monte Cristo Saloon and Dance Hall houses a gift shop and gallery featuring work by local artists. Both are open seven days a week from 10am-4pm. Harry Pye's cabin is available as a vacation rental. Other landmarks in this tiny town (population 11) include the 200-year-old Hanging Tree and Doodle Dum, the workshop of longtime resident Cassie Hobbs (19041989). Hillsboro was born in 1877 when gold was found at the nearby Opportunity and Ready Pay mines. Despite fierce Indian attacks, the town grew, becoming the county seat in 1884. Area mines produced more than $6 million in gold and silver, and by 1907 the town had a population of 1,200. Today, this charming, peaceful village of a hundred souls, which boasts flower-filled yards and old cottonwoods lining the main street, offers many enticements, including gift shops; restaurants; artist studios and galleries; the remains of the old county courthouse; the Black Range Museum; Union Church; and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. Hillsboros Heritage Day is held annually on the day before Mother's Day. Kingston was founded when a rich lode of silver ore was discovered at the Solitaire in 1882. It grew rapidly and was the largest town in the territory—and one of the wildest in the Wild West. The town soon offered all of the trappings of civilization and culture. Numerous hotels played host to the likes of Mark Twain, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Black Jack Ketchum. Stage lines served all major routes, and the town supported twenty-three saloons,some of which advertised fresh oysters 24 hours a day! The town also had 14 grocery and general stores; a brewery; three newspapers; and an Opera House where the Lillian Russell Troupe once performed. Albert Bacon Fall and Ed Doheny of the Teapot Dome Scandal got their start in Kingston. From those glory days, the old Assay Office and the remains of the Victorio Hotel have been renovated as private residences. The Black Range Lodge, a bed and breakfast, offers accommodations in a setting of massive stonewalls and log-beamed ceilings constructed from the ruins of what once was Pretty Sam's Casino. Some Kingston residents offer straw-bale and natural building workshops

The Coal Town System

West Virginia coal operators built small, company-owned towns for their miners to live in. The coal towns were almost always unincorporated; there were no elected officials, no independent police forces. Owners hired private detective agencies to watch over their workforce. Company towns were also untethered from the free market competition owners usually championed. "The Mine Wars" premieres January 26, 2016 on American Experience PBS.

The Secret World Of Gold | Gold Mining - Geographic History. It is impossible to know the exact date that humans first began to mine gold, but some of the oldest known gold artifacts were found in the Varna Necropolis in Bulgaria. The graves of the necropolis were built between 4700 and 4200 BC, indicating that gold mining could be at least 7000 years old. A group of German and Georgian archaeologists claims the Sakdrisi site in southern Georgia, dating to the 3rd or 4th millennium BC, may be the world's oldest known gold mine.

1800's Bank safe and Bones discovered in the woods

From the story I was told by an old timer that lived up in the mountains of Idaho, there was a old mining town that burnt down in the summer of 1887. In the town was the main bank for the miners living in the area. Sometime after the fire someone broke into the bank and tried to blow up the safe with dynamite, but unfortunately for the bank robbers when the dynamite went off, it blew the safe out through a stone wall in the back of the bank and 200 feet down the hill spreading gold coins and old bills all over the hill side. This is the video of the search for the bank to prove it really happened.

I do know it must have been an old mining town, so there are probably some good mine tunnels to go back and explore as soon as the snow melts. I also found that the main commodity was gold, placer gold deposits. I also want to say thank you to everyone who takes the time to like this video and comment.

Top 10 Ghost Towns in the World HD 2015
 
03:55
Top 10 Ghost Towns in the World 2015 HD 1080p 1. Kayakoy, Anatolia, Turkey In 1923, the Greco-Turkish war had ended, at that time nearly a million Greeks were living in Turkey. Upon the conclusion of the war, all of them were sent back to their homeland. Because of this, it forced towns like Kayakoy (a town of roughly 2,000 Greeks) to be completely abandoned. The remains of the village have been preserved as a historical site and even to this day, many tourist go and visit the area. 2. Herculaneum, Naples, Italy Once a wealthy Roman seaside resort of Herculaneum, this town was buried under ash and rock in A.D. 79 because Mount Vesuvius decided it was time to erupt. To this day there are excavations done by archaeologists at this tie, all the time. They have come across a rather fascinating list of objects including: private villas, shops, bathhouses, and an incredible range of everyday objects. 3. Pyramiden, Svalbard, Norway Once an arctic coal mining town controlled by the U.S.S.R, this town has seen better days. This place did go thru it's hayday, however. In a past life it was a premiere Soviet settlement, fully set with with worker's barracks, a sports center, and dire love for their leader Lenin. The mine is now a true ghost town with the buildings, including a library full of books, a theater, and a music hall with the world's northernmost grand piano, have been left as they were when the town was abandoned in 1998. 4. Bodie, California Once a booming gold mining town, and home to over 8,000 residents, Bodie used to be a rather hoppin' town. According to legend, this town was quite famous in the late 1800s for gunfights and brawls. In the 1880s the mines had been largely depleted and the people began to flee town, ending in complete abandonment. The 150ish buildings still left standing in Bodie are almost exactly how the residents left them. 5. Humberstone and Santa Laura, Atacama Desert, Chile Humberstone and Santa Laura are sister towns that were mainly used by saltpeter miners. They were both abandoned by 1958. The buildings have preserved well thru time and the main attractions include a theater with its original chairs, houses, a cast-iron swimming pool made from the hull of a ship, a hotel, and grocers' shops complete with price lists. 6. Bhangarh, Rajasthan, India Bhangarh was once the local capital of northwestern India. In 1720s, however, the town was conquered by the raja of Jaipur. Because of this, residents quickly deserted the town. Legend contests that this town is severely haunted and there are even crazier stories surrounding the city's rise and extremely rapid decline. 7. Wenzhou, China The super rich in China are doing what the super rich every else in the world are not. They are investing in multi-billion dollar construction projects that are throwing up gigantic cities all over the country. The only problem with this? No one is moving to them. Wenzhou can hold close to 2 million people, and yet only 20-30 thousand live there. That is good enough for me to consider it a ghost town. 8. St. Elmo, Colorado A more traditional ghost town resides in St. Elmo, Colorado. Just like other ghost towns on the west coast of the USA, St. Elmo was once a booming mining town. It was also an ideal trading post along the railroad routes running thru central Colorado. When the railway shut down in 1922, it forced the entire town to shut down as the money was just not there anymore. 9. Chaco Canyon, New Mexico A.D. 800-1100 was the time in which the Chaco civilization was hoppin'. Through this time, the historic canyon served as a ceremonial, civic, and commercial center. If you are thinking about making a trip there, there is a perfect 9 mile (14km) paved loop road that runs through the canyon. It is quite spectacular, really. 10. Ordos, China Another one of China's infamous failed construction residential project cities, Ordos is quite astonishing, and is quite possibly the largest bust of any Chinese ghost town. Built to hold well over 2.5 million people, there a barely even 25 thousand residents. Not to mention a LARGE percentage of the skyscrapers aren't even being finished. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Undiscovered Places to Visit Now 2018 HD" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqrBVPVw3pg -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Oatman Arizona
 
08:05
Some video I took as we drove through Oatman! Welcome to Oatman Arizona, an old Gold Mining Town Dating back to the late 1800's. In it's prime Oatman and it's neighbor Goldroad were the largest gold producers in Arizona. Located up the hill from Bullhead City and Laughlin on the Colorado River, old timers will remember it as a Route 66 stop over as the famed road passes right through the middle of town. Today it is host to 40 plus gift and Antique Shops, Gun Fight Shows and Wild Burros.. Left over from the mining days the Burro's make themselves home wandering the streets... careful they'll follow you right into a store. (Music By: Elvis Cortez)

Exploring the Ghost Town of Jacob City on my KLR 650
 
12:21
After years of reading about ghost towns and old mining towns near where I live I decided to visit one of them. Jacob City was an old mining town back in the late 1800's. At its peak only 200-300 people lived here. Now all that's left is ruins of the old city. All the structures have collapsed except a few. I ride my Kawasaki KLR 650 over to Tooele County and ask some locals for directions. My friends and I finally find our way up the mountain and find the old city that once thrived with gold hunters. I walk around and show you a few of the ruins left over and beautiful scenery around the old town. Thanks for watching.

Abandoned Mining Town, Ghost town 1800s Mansion
 
04:55
Exploring before the mining sites, this is often called Mansion row as it has the nicest buildings in the town. Most of the buildings from this time period around mines are often very meager. Video might not do the quality of wood and workman ship in these homes justice. Also Idaho winters are very rough on buildings its a testament to how well built these are!

Natural Air-conditioning: An Abandoned Copper Mining Town
 
06:44
I know this video has nothing to do with electrical engineering, or anything electrical for that matter, but I thought it would be cool to show you this. It is this abandoned copper mining town with these cool little houses. These houses are designed underground such that they always stay cool, hence the name: natural air conditioning. This town is little known about and in the middle of nowhere, its not even on a map! The town dates back to the late 1800's to the early 1900's. It is about 15 minutes off the I-15 in California at the bottom of the hill last hill before Vegas going north.

Visit To Calico Ghost Town: Popular Authentic Restored Silver Mining Town
 
16:41
http://www.hollywoodhaunter.com/ This is a real abandoned mining ghost town fixed up by Walter Knott. Join us for a fun birthday shenanigans at the Knott's Berry Farm sponsored Calico Old Mining Ghost Town in Yermo California located 13 miles east of Barstow in the Mojave Desert in the Calico Mountains. This popular tourist attraction that is a multi colored rocky mountain area produced one of the richest silver strikes in California history back in the 1800s. Back then the population rose to 1,200 people. After three hours of plundering the towns many saloons we paid a quick visit to the Rainbow Basin a natural area that has multi-colored rock formations. I wanted to spend the day doing something different with the birthday girl so I surprised her with this low key relaxing trip out to the desert. We even picked up a few inspirations for our Halloween home haunt decorated yard this year which happens to be an old abandoned western ghost town. We comment along the way as we explore and travel through the town and make prop, haunter, and Halloween references. You will see us explore old buildings, shops, abandoned silver mine called Maggie Shaft, Glory Holes, gold panning, see antique tools and equipment, mystery shacks that make us wheezy and gun slinging fights in the streets. The trip gave us several ideas for building all our Halloween ghost town facades. We didn't stay for the stunning Mojave sunset. Thanks for watching and joining us on this little adventure.

Living History in Butte: My Favorite Forgotten Montana Boom-Gone-Bust Town
 
05:18
Evel Knieval's childhood playground, Butte Montana is rough and tumble Wild West frontier city through and through. Located in the Silver Bow Creek, the city was put on the map as a mining boomtown in the late 19th century and lays claim to be the “Richest Hill On Earth” thanks to the profitable minerals extracted underground. During its heyday, Butte grew into a thriving city and is now home to the second largest national historic district after New Orleans. On a visit you don’t want to miss an Underground Walking Tour. A highlight stop is the the Roaring 20’s Rookwood Speakeasy in the basement of the former Rockwood Hotel. Inside, a musty smell adrifts and you can imagine the room in its heyday in the 20’s with jazz, flappers and gambling. With such an extensive mining history, a trip to Butte should also include a trip to the World Museum of Mining, which is built on actual mine yard: The Orphan Girl. The tour also lets you peep into a shaft station, used to bring miners up and down to the veins below the city of Butte. Towards the end of the tour, we were all told to turn our headlamps off to see what total darkness looks like, and then with just a small flicker, what it was like with the faint glow of candles workers depended on in the beginning mining era. It should come as no surprise that a town with a rugged individualism mentality like Butte's also has its own distillery making spirits with names tied to Butte’s mining past. At Headframe Sprits, owned by Butte raised John McKee and his wife Courtney, you will find everything from gin and whiskey to vodka and bourbon. Head to the old fashioned bar tasting room to sample the liquor and the cocktails they create from it. The top seller is the Orphan Girl Bourbon Cream Liqueur, which is named for the mine. It’s similar to Bailey’s in taste and is mixed with Root Beer to create my favorite, the Dirty Orphan Girl cocktail.

JEROME ARIZONA GHOST TOWN 1960s SILENT TRAVEL FILM 46774
 
17:12
This well-made silent film, apparently made by Ken Mershon, shows Jerome, Arizona and the surrounding area as it appeared in the late 1960s or early 1970s when it was still considered a ghost town. Jerome is a town in the Black Hills of Yavapai County in the U.S. state of Arizona. Founded in the late 19th century on Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley, it is more than 5,000 feet (1,500 m) above sea level. It is about 100 miles (160 km) north of Phoenix along State Route 89A between Sedona and Prescott. Supported in its heyday by rich copper mines, it was home to more than 10,000 people in the 1920s. As of the 2010 census, its population was 444. The town owes its existence mainly to two ore bodies that formed about 1.75 billion years ago along a ring fault in the caldera of an undersea volcano. Tectonic plate movements, plate collisions, uplift, deposition, erosion, and other geologic processes eventually exposed the tip of one of the ore bodies and pushed the other close to the surface, both near Jerome. In the late 19th century, the United Verde Mine, developed by William A. Clark, extracted ore bearing copper, gold, silver, and other metals from the larger of the two. The United Verde Extension (UVX) Mine, owned by James Douglas, Jr., depended on the other huge deposit. In total, the copper deposits discovered in the vicinity of Jerome were among the richest ever found. Jerome made news in 1917, when strikes involving the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) led to the expulsion at gunpoint of about 60 IWW members, who were loaded on a cattle car and shipped west. Production at the mines, always subject to fluctuations, boomed during World War I, fell thereafter, rose again, then fell again during and after the Great Depression. As the ore deposits ran out, the mines closed, and the population dwindled to fewer than 100 by the mid-1950s. Efforts to save the town from oblivion succeeded when residents turned to tourism and retail sales. Jerome became a National Historic Landmark in 1967. By the early 21st century, Jerome had art galleries, coffee houses, restaurants, a state park, and a local museum devoted to mining history.

Incredibly Rare Wooden Ore Cart Found Inside A Mine!
 
22:15
Well, we certainly don’t come across something like this every day when we’re out exploring… Just like the abandoned steam engine we featured in another video, this is one of those incredible once in a lifetime finds. There are precious few of these wooden ore carts left in existence and even fewer that can still be found at an abandoned mine rather than rotting away in someone’s backyard. Fortunately, this mine is not marked on any topographic maps and it is in a very remote area of the desert. I believe this is what has protected it from the vermin that ransack these sites to sell the historical artifacts on eBay. Were it not for these circumstances, the wooden ore cart would have undoubtedly disappeared a long time ago. We have found bits and pieces of the metal frames of wooden ore carts in and around some of the old (1800s) mines in California’s “Mother Lode” region. So, obviously, they were used there. However, the wood has long since rotted away and whatever was left of the abandoned carts has disintegrated with time and exposure to the elements. If you consider it, wooden ore carts actually made a lot of sense for the miners in the past that were venturing out over steep mountains and down deep canyons, often over little more than primitive trails. Rather than needing to use a team of mules to haul a backbreakingly heavy metal ore cart up a sheer cliff to a mine, the miners could have hauled out the relatively lightweight (except for the wheels) components and then assembled the carts from the plentiful trees growing around the mine. And, as was mentioned in the video, if something breaks, the miners could just cut another tree down and repair the cart. From the look of it, the wooden ore cart at this mine in the video may have likewise been constructed from the trees found around the mine. As for the mine itself, which was almost an afterthought for me after finding the wooden ore cart, it wasn’t a huge mine, but I thought it was an interesting little mine all the same, no? The flickering effect created by the LEDs on the video drove me nuts when I was editing it, but focusing on the features of the mine, I liked the way the mine twisted around until it reached that small raise and the winze. Given how clean this first section of the mine was, I can only conclude that that section is the one that was worked most recently and the area behind the skip car (where the rails for the ore carts disappeared) was driven during the early days of the mine and then abandoned. I don’t blame the miners for abandoning that section of the mine given how soft the material there was. ***** 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 If you like these videos on exploring abandoned mines, please subscribe! https://goo.gl/yjPxH1 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, guess what? We have fun 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 hundred years, 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
