Is this the Blue Lead Clay?
 
01:15
I have access to some family owned land in the county of Rowan in North Carolina and need some help with prospecting. Apparently there were at least 3-4 open pit and or vertical shaft mines on the land but were never registered... and as such, no written history appears to be available. We are in gold country and I have found some small gold in the small spring fed creek that goes through the property. My question is how to get to it and what dirt/clay is best to process. The creek is old and doesn't have much water flow per say as it only begins about 300-400 yards away from our land. The origin is literally across the street. So there is not much in the way of gravel or sand bars and or typical places to look. This video is a view of the dark blue clay that lines the creek in most places and is full of quartz and other rocks. Is this the Blue Lead?

Clay County Petroglyphs | Kentucky Life | KET
 
07:22
In a previous season, we paid our first visit to the mysterious Red Bird River Shelter petroglyphs, or rock carvings, in Clay County. We returned to this site to explore its Native American connections. A researcher from the University of Cincinnati even sees connections to the great Sequoyah (1776-1843), who created the written Cherokee language. The site has long been connected to Native Americans and with the Cherokee chief Red Bird, who gave his name to the nearby river. Kenneth B. Tankersley, an archaeologist at the University of Cincinnati and himself a member of the Cherokee nation, found 15 characters from the Cherokee language carved into the sandstone along with a date of 1808 or 1818—making them the earliest known example of the Cherokee script. Tankersley believes the carvings could have been done by Sequoyah himself. He is exploring the possibility of links between these Cherokee symbols and the much older pictographs carved into the rock. If there is a link, it could make this Clay County site the Rosetta Stone of the Cherokee language. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Learn more about KET's program Kentucky life at http://www.ket.org/kentuckylife/ Visit Kentucky Life's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/kentuckylife Subscribe to the KET channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=ketvideos

Silver Mining & Silversmiths: "Heirlooms of Tomorrow" 1930 US Bureau of Mines

Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver Silver is the metallic element with the atomic number 47. Its symbol is Ag, from the Latin argentum, derived from the Greek ὰργὀς (literally "shiny" or "white"), and ultimately from a Proto-Indo-European language root reconstructed as *h2erǵ-, "grey" or "shining". A soft, white, lustrous transition metal, it exhibits the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal. The metal is found in the Earth's crust in the pure, free elemental form ("native silver"), as an alloy with gold and other metals, and in minerals such as argentite and chlorargyrite. Most silver is produced as a byproduct of copper, gold, lead, and zinc refining. Silver is more abundant than gold, but it is much less abundant as a native metal. Its purity is typically measured on a per mille basis; a 94%-pure alloy is described as "0.940 fine". As one of the seven metals of antiquity, silver has had an enduring role in most human cultures. Silver has long been valued as a precious metal. Silver metal is used in many premodern monetary systems in bullion coins, sometimes alongside gold. Silver is used in numerous applications other than currency, such as solar panels, water filtration, jewelry, ornaments, high-value tableware and utensils (hence the term silverware), and as an investment medium (coins and bullion). Silver is used industrially in electrical contacts and conductors, in specialized mirrors, window coatings, and in catalysis of chemical reactions. Silver compounds are used in photographic film and X-rays. Dilute silver nitrate solutions and other silver compounds are used as disinfectants and microbiocides (oligodynamic effect), added to bandages and wound-dressings, catheters, and other medical instruments... Jewelry and silverware Jewelry and silverware are traditionally made from sterling silver (standard silver), an alloy of 92.5% silver with 7.5% copper. In the US, only alloys at least 0.900-fine silver can be sold as "silver" (frequently stamped 900). Sterling silver (stamped 925) is harder than pure silver and has a lower melting point (893 °C) than either pure silver or pure copper.[5] Britannia silver is an alternative, hallmark-quality standard containing 95.8% silver, often used for silver tableware and wrought plate. The patented alloy Argentium sterling silver is formed by the addition of germanium, having improved properties including resistance to firescale. Sterling silver jewelry is often plated with a thin coat of .999-fine silver to create a shiny finish. This process is called "flashing". Silver jewelry can also be plated with rhodium (for a bright shine) or gold (silver gilt). Silver is a constituent of almost all colored carat gold alloys and carat gold solders, giving the alloys paler color and greater hardness. White 9-carat gold contains 62.5% silver and 37.5% gold, while 22-carat gold contains a minimum of 91.7% gold and 8.3% silver or copper or other metals. Historically, the training and guild organization of goldsmiths included silversmiths, and the two crafts remain largely overlapping. Unlike blacksmiths, silversmiths do not shape the metal while it is softened with heat, but work it at room temperature with gentle and carefully placed hammer blows. The essence of silversmithing is to transform a piece of flat metal into a useful object with hammers, stakes, and other simple tools. While silversmiths specialize and work principally in silver, they also work with other metals, such as gold, copper, steel, and brass, to make jewelry, silverware, armor, vases, and other artistic items. Because silver is so malleable, silversmiths have many choices for working the metal. Historically, silversmiths are usually called goldsmiths and are usually members of the same guild. The western Canadian silversmith tradition does not include guilds but mentoring through colleagues is a common method of professional advancement. Traditionally, silversmiths mostly made "silverware" (cutlery, tableware, bowls, candlesticks and such). Handmade solid silver tableware is now much less common...

Mining for Nevalite®
 
12:15
White Montmorillonite is mined at the Nevalite mine in the high desert of Nevada. Dan Golden talks about Lucky Jim and how the White Montmorillonite within the mine had healing powers beyond Jims and eventually Dans own skeptical mind. Lucky Jim was murdered in what his family says was an assassination by "Big Pharma" to keep these types of remedies out of the market. But with todays wealth of science backing the uses for Montmorillonite, Big Pharma is now on board. Companies like BASF and Novartis are producing products containing montmorillonites more and more everyday. They are extracting the montmorillonites from bentonite or synthesizing it with other chemicals for industrial, cosmetic and medical uses. Dan Gold explains how and why he purchased the mine. After reading about natural clay remedies and experimenting on himself and family he decided to bring this clay back to the world of holistic and homeopathic all natural remedies. Respecting its integrity, he mines it by hand and has it milled into a powder to create a pristine grade of White Montmorillonite that is high is its cation exchange capacity creating a crystallin powdered clay that has unequalled ionic energy. This Ionic energy is what gives White Montmorillonite the power to create a platform for a healthier life style by being an amazing catalyst for the organic synthesis which promotes body balance. Dan is passionate about this mine and its contents and so should you. Go to http://www.goldennevalite.com to find out how to get it. Or go to http://www.whitemontmorillonite.com to learn more about White Montmorillonite. Like Dan Says, "Nevalite for Life!" See Dan on Pawn Stars! http://www.history.com/shows/pawn-stars/videos/chum-fever?m=5189717d404fa&s=All&f=1&free=false Lucky Jim was a prospector gambler who one rainy day in mid February 1945 observed a miner walking down the road. Lucky Jim left the casino to catch up with the old miner. He shouted, "hey hold up old feller!" The miner stopped in his tracks. Lucky Jim shouted at him and said, "I've been grubstaken you and loaned you money for years because you said you were crippled from arthritis. Now you are striking down the road like a spring chicken! Have you been lying to get money from me?" Jim asked. The miner said no, that he had struck a claim about 6 miles away in the high desert mountains. While working the claim all he could find was this white powder stuff all over the place. The minor said he filed a claim because he was sure there was gold there but all we could find was the white powder while digging on his hands and knees. Hey said then it started raining for a long time and after about two weeks his knees did not hurt anymore. He said the white powder turned into a cloudy mud and soaked into his knees. Lucky Jim said show me where this white powder stuff is. So the miner took lucky Jim to the claim. When they got there lucky Jim was amazed how it felt walking on spongecake instead of the firm desert sand. Lucky Jim offered to buy the mine from the old minor by forgiving is gambling debts and grubstake loans. "There's right nothing of value here just this white powder stuff all over the place!" The minor exclaimed, "You got yourself a deal!" So after lucky Jim went to the assayers office and got the claim signed over. Lucky Jim then asked the local desert people if they knew what the stuff was? They said yes, the ancient desert dwellers called it "Silk Stone or Cloud Water" They asked him if the soil felt like walking on spongecake? Lucky Jim said yes it did! They said that an old Shaman used it and would not take anyone to the mine because they would trample out the magic.   One day the medicine man suddenly died and the mine was lost forever. They asked where lucky Jim found it? He asked them what it was used for? They said they would not tell him unless he reveal the location of the lost mine. He said he would not, but would give them silkstone for life exchange for informing him what it was used for. They said "you got yourself a deal!" When lucky Jim asked them what the silk stone was used for they replied "everything!"  He asked would you please define everything? The answers were astonishing and explained why the old miners knees where healed. It was used for sunburn, open wounds, it made water safe to drink, cured upset stomach, improved eye sight, cured gout, cured acne and psoriasis, arthritis, shingles, improved sex drive and made older men feel younger. In time lucky Jim renamed the cloud water, "Nevalite."

What Kind Of Mine Is This?
 
12:12
Sometimes we don’t know a lot about the abandoned mines that we visit. Other times we don’t know anything at all – not even a name. That is the case with this mystery mine. I don’t know the name or even what was mined here. However, I fortunately have smart viewers that know a lot about the world and so I want to know what you think of this mine… Share your knowledge! It seems there was once a settlement of a decent size at this mine given the mine buildings and the several outbuildings that, I believe, included at least two bunkhouses. There are no other mines indicated on maps of the area that I have seen. And we scouted out the surrounding area a bit without seeing a sign of any other mining activity. So, presumably, all of those buildings are connected to our mystery mine. There is a lot there though for what seems a relatively small mine and it must have cost them a fair amount of money to get all of that established. Of course, that could also be why it is abandoned as the miners presumably lost a pile of money on the project. In Nevada, there is a lot of public land that is fenced off for cattle. Barbed wire stretches across some of the roads to form a crude gate. One simply unhooks the barbed wire and pulls it aside. After driving through, one simply hooks the loop of barbed wire across the post again. It is a primitive, but it works as long as individuals are courteous enough to close the “gate” again. However, it seems that many people are deterred by these “gates” and do not understand that they are allowed to access the land behind them. This mine was accessed via one of those “gated” roads and it is in an already very scarcely populated area. So, I didn’t have the impression that many people made it out here. That impression was solidified by the rough road out to the mine. One is required to drive up a wash for part of the journey and I ended up unintentionally using the truck as something of a bulldozer in some of the larger piles of river rock spilling across the road to the mine. ***** 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 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

Arizona's Abandoned Mines: The Green Quartz Mine and the Town of Oatman
 
04:31
Spent part of the day exploring the Green Quartz Mine site near the town of Oatman, AZ. It was my first time in this territory, so part of the trip was used to scout future mines to explore. The Green Quartz Mine dates back to the early 1900s. The site has many vertical shafts of varying depth as well as one small tunnel. Nearby is the old mining town of Oatman that I briefly explored by driving down its main street. Oatman definitely is a classic American, old-west town that still retains its historical roots. Oatman is definitely a must-see if you're in the area!

Archaeological Discoveries That do not fit Academic Models of Human History
 
01:06:57
Mysterious and often inexplicable remnants of civilization's history fascinate scientists and archaeologists. People travel worldwide to visit such sites, yet some of the most enigmatic artifacts and structures have been found right here in North America. Unfortunately, because these records do not fit within accepted academic models of human history, they remain unexplained mysteries, and most people never hear of them. • Long before any humans were supposed to be on this continent, unknown hands removed millions of pounds of copper from mines near Lake Superior. • Giant people as tall as 12 feet were buried in Arizona, Nevada and the Midwest. • A three-foot-high adult mummy was discovered in Wyoming. • Sandaled feet made footprints in rock at least 300 million years old in Utah. • A human-like tooth,three times normal size, was found in coal from a Montana mine.

Cyanide in solution is sprinkled on a pad of ore a heaping 65 feet high. The leach solution pulls gold out of the gravel ore in the heap. Gold chelated to cyanide drips down to a catchment basin that is pumped to the extraction plant. Powderd Zinc is induced into the post-leach fluid. The gold migrates from cyanide to bond with zinc. In the Merrill Crowe building filtration systems screen out the zinc-gold from fluid trapping it into clay made from ground shale. Diatoms where tiny prehistoric microorganisms that left their mark in the mud at the bottom of water bodies. That clay has an attribute of very fine porousity, thereby able to trap very fine grains of precious metal while letting fluid pass through. The proocess is greatly aided by pressure afforded by modern technology. The chemical process was developed during the turn of the last century. Goldspring is considering doubling the height of ore on the leach pad to increase volume of processing.

US Mines & Mineral Resources: "United States: A Ten Talent Nation" 1922 American Motion Picture

Geology & Earth Sciences playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A more at http://scitech.quickfound.net Good overview of mining and mineral resources in the US as of 1922, with many nice film clips and lots of statistics. Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal and oil shale, gemstones, limestone, and dimension stone, rock salt and potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. The nature of mining processes creates a potential negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine is closed. This impact has led to most of the world's nations adopting regulations to moderate the negative effects of mining operations. Safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have improved safety in mines significantly... Mining in the United States became prevalent in the 19th century, and the General Mining Act of 1872 was passed to encourage mining of federal lands. As with the California Gold Rush in the mid 19th century, mining for minerals and precious metals, along with ranching, was a driving factor in the Westward Expansion to the Pacific coast. With the exploration of the West, mining camps were established and "expressed a distinctive spirit, an enduring legacy to the new nation;" Gold Rushers would experience the same problems as the Land Rushers of the transient West that preceded them. Aided by railroads, many traveled West for work opportunities in mining. Western cities such as Denver and Sacramento originated as mining towns. As new areas were explored, it was usually the gold (placer and then load) and then silver that were taken first, with other metals often waiting for railroads or canals. Coarse gold dust and nuggets do not require smelting, is easy to identify and is easily transported. Modern period In the early 20th century, the gold and silver rush to the western United States also stimulated mining for base metals such as copper, lead, and iron as well as coal. Areas in modern Montana, Utah, Arizona, and later Alaska became predominate suppliers of copper to the world, which was increasingly demanding copper for electrical and households goods. Canada's mining industry grew more slowly than the United States due to limitations in transportation, capital, and U.S. competition; Ontario was the major producer of the early 20th century with nickel, copper, and gold. Meanwhile, Australia experienced the Australian gold rushes and by the 1850s was producing 40% of the world's gold, followed by the establishment of large mines such as the Mount Morgan Mine, which ran for nearly a hundred years, Broken Hill ore deposit (one of the largest zinc-lead ore deposits), and iron ore mines at Iron Knob. After declines in production, another boom in mining occurred in the 1960s and in the 21st century Australia remains a major world mineral producer. Into the 21st century, a globalized mining industry of large multinational corporations has arisen. Peak minerals and environmental impacts have also become a concern. Different elements, particularly rare earth minerals, have begun to increase in demand as a result of new technologies...

Sit back, relax and join me as I explore the over 2 miles of tunnel in the Reuben Mine. This mine was dug initially in the early 1900's, but has been worked as recently as 4 or 5 years ago, maybe even more recently. This site was mined for gold, and was one of the largest producers in Oregon. There are over 2 miles of drifts, winzes, shafts, etc. and it took us over two hours to explore. There were several winzes that we did not descend, but could lead to additional workings. This mine is located in Josephine County, Oregon. Josephine County is one of Oregon's primary mining areas - along with Baker / Grant Counties. I will also upload a video of this mine's escape way, as well as other adits at the minesite. Please note: This is not the actual name for this mine. If you MUST know the name of the mine please contact me privately.

Exploring A Remote Mine And Miner's Cabin In The Desert
 
21:26
Remote! This abandoned mine and miner’s cabin is WAY out in the Nevada desert. Come along with us on this adventure to see the treasures that can, fortunately, still be found hidden away in our world... Highway 50 running through Nevada is said to be “The Loneliest Road” in America. Well, to get to this abandoned mine, you have to turn off of the loneliest road and go down an even more lonely dirt road for many miles. Then, you have to turn off of that lonely dirt road onto another dirt road, that seems to be not much more than an animal trail, and go on that for several miles before finally arriving near enough to this mine to be able to walk up to it. Pretty lonely! We are frequently amazed by the ability of the old time prospectors to locate promising mineral deposits in the most remote and inhospitable places. This mine proved to be no exception. I simply cannot imagine how the miners in the past decided to start running an adit at this site. Interestingly, they punched straight back for several hundred feet before the adit abruptly stops at a “T” junction. There was a small drift and stope on the left, but on the right (taking off at a sharp angle of 90 degrees from the adit we came in on) was another drift heading off deeper into the mountain. This drift continues for several hundred feet more before coming to a chamber where the miners created a fairly large stope and also pursued the ore down through the floor of the adit. Perhaps the bits of wood down in the small pit they created are what is left of a trestle that used to run across this spot? After making our way across the small pit, the drift meandered around until we came to a large ore chute leading up into what must be upper workings of a respectable size. In the video, you can see why I believe these may connect to the outside world. After the ore chute, the historic mine bends around some more before finally simply stopping at a rock face. I don’t know what encouraged the miners to suddenly branch off from the initial adit at the sharp right angle, but this was apparently a good call given the stopes and ore chute that indicate they took some sort of valuable mineral out of there. The miner’s cabin did not have any type of road leading up to it. We continued hiking up the mountain above the mine in order to look for the presumed outside access to the upper workings that we saw extending up from the ore chute inside of the mine. We did not find the breach to the outside world (or the inside world depending on your perspective) that we were seeking, but the vegetation was fairly thick in the most likely areas. Forgive us, but we did not push too aggressively into some of these spots as we had no desire to be blindly thrashing our way through the thick brush only to take a tumble down a shaft or open stope. Instead, we kept exploring up the mountain because we were enjoying the views and were curious about what might be in such an area that sees so very few humans. After hiking for a while, I noticed the remains of a very faint trail leading down a little side canyon or dry wash. I already knew that we were going to be hiking back down to the mine in the dark anyway, so I decided to follow the trail for a little ways. I soon discovered that the trail had been created by miners in the past as I came across the old miner’s cabin and the small prospect next to it. That was a real treat as, obviously, very few people know it is there and so it still had a large number of artifacts around, which allowed us to really understand what the lonely life of the miner there must have been like. We hiked down in the dark and drove out in the dark (which wasn’t easy), but it was worth it to explore this mine and to see the forgotten miner’s cabin. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Mine Cristal, mining quartz crystals
 
08:02
www.minecristal.ca Stay informed about our new videos: subscribe to our YouTube channel "Mine Cristal". This mine is located in Bonsecours, Quebec, Canada. Photos and video clips shown here date from 1989 - 2012. The open-pit mine produces splendid quartz crystals with exceptional clarity. The largest single crystals measure 60 cm (24 inches) in length. Since mining began in 1989, 32 types, or morphologies of quartz crystals have been catalogued. Geological research into the origins of these crystals has revealed that they formed at this location some 300 million years ago under extreme conditions of heat and pressure. We harvest crystals in the mine only as needed, to supply our store with a sufficient quantity of quartz crystals. Exceptionally (for a mine), we harvest all the crystals by hand and without the use of dynamite. It is a privilege for us to participate in the discovery and extraction of these true gems of nature. The extraction process is done in a manner which respects both the environment and the crystals: we endeavor to keep the crystals whole and in a pristine state. In the museum and the store, our crystals are presented in an untouched, natural state. Amazingly, each crystal is an intricate work of art made by Nature; no two are alike and this makes them even more fascinating! Mine Cristal is considered by experts to be a “geological gem,” one of Canada’s great natural sites, due to it’s unique and abundant mineralogical deposits.

SHOCKING GOOGLE EARTH IMAGES
 
09:00
Google is capable of some pretty crazy stuff, and it gives you an idea of how easy it is for us to be watched. With their satellite capabilities and with the google street car on the loose, it’s pretty easy to find some unbelievable things. Here are Shocking Google Earth Images. Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 12. NSA Data Center Residents of Bluffdale, Utah might not be aware that there’s a huge NSA data base hiding behind a hill. But you can’t hide from google maps. Lets go ahead and take a look at it before it becomes one of those places censored on google maps. The area was supposedly chose for the “patriotism” of the Utah residents, but more than likely chosen for the cool climate to cool down their massive serverrs. The building uses enough energy to power over 1000 houses. The city of Bluffdale had to construct a 3 million dollar system to deliver water to federal building. The Army Corps of Engineers origiinally stated that it needed 1.7 million gallons of water a day to operate but they settled on 1.2 million. Let’s not forget about the massive amount of data being stored on citizens which can accessed with a warrant being stored here. A legislator wanted to stand up to the feds and shut off water to the facility but what would the consequences be? It doesn’t seem to get great reviews by the local guides either. 11. UTA Flight Memorial A tragic plane crash took place by a French airline which was attacked by terrorists while flying over africa in 1989. The plane was flying to France from the congo when an unexpected event took place. In order to show respect to those who perished, a memorial that can be seen from above was placed on the scene of the crime. The sahara desert sands have covered up much of it since then and you get an idea how isolated any survivor must have been. 10. Kalgoorlie Mine Australia In the hunt for gold and lots of it, you’d be surprised how it can change the landscape so drastically. This is located in the remote Australian outback in the western part of the country and it’s soo big it can be seen from space. The super pit almost looks like it’s actually bigger than the city next to it! They originally considered a small number of underground mines but there was just so much gold, they just built a massive pit, that will likely be on the surface of earth for eternity. In order to get all the gold out, an estimated 15 million tons of rock is moved from the mine each year. In 1989 the super pit we see today was created and eventually it was acquired by Barrick gold in 2001. 9. Oil Wells Argentina Argentina has been known for being one of the top oil producers in the world and we can tell from this place on google maps that it’s certainly shaped their landscape. This area in Rio Negro has been dotted with thousands of oil wells all in a dense formation. It’s a little surreal in a sense and when you zoom in, you notice most of the time, nothing is really there! It makes you wonder, even after all the oil is gone, how it will shape the environment. 8. Kuwait Oil Fires Skimming through the desert lands of northwestern Kuwait, you’ll notice much of the land is scarred from the environmental crisis that took place. When saddam was denied access to Kuwait by the world government, instead of handing the saught after oilfields to the US, they were just gonna set em on fire instead. 600 total! Aww all that for nothing! The area here at one point was dark enough to the point where it blocked out the sun in parts of kuwait. Black rain fell from the sky and some oil wells burned for over 6 months. Livestock and villagers lungs blacked like the color of the sand.

Exploring A Large Limestone Mine - Part 2
 
15:27
In this next section of the abandoned limestone mine that we explored, we dropped down to the level below the one where we started exploring. The level shown in this video was the primary haulage adit for this section of the mine (meaning that all of the other levels of the mine dropped ore and waste rock down - or hauled ore and waste rock up - to this level to haul out). The reason for this is that this level of the mine is at “ground level” at the base of the cliff and it was, therefore, easy for trucks to drive into the adit to recover ore from the ore chutes and to remove waste rock. The upper levels had ore carts and track as it was, obviously, not practical to move large trucks up the cliffs – much easier to just drop all of the limestone down to the haulage adit. I was surprised to still be able to see the tire tracks from the trucks inside of the haulage adit after more than fifty years, but the ground was very hard and not muddy. So, it was almost as if the tracks were frozen there and I suspect they will still be there another fifty years from now. Some viewers have expressed surprise in the past over the presence of vehicles run by combustion engines inside of the mines (such as LHDs or trucks), but it is important to remember that the mines are very well ventilated and undoubtedly there was a blower outside of the mine blasting a steady stream of fresh air into the mine to prevent the dust and exhaust gases from becoming a problem for the miners. As was mentioned in the first video in this series, there are many levels at this section of the mine, but the others are accessible only by rope and are filled with waist-deep mud. Since we didn’t have waders or technical climbing gear with us that day, we opted to bypass those levels. Almost certainly, there was nothing much that we missed out on. Any artifacts would be hidden beneath the mud and the adits would look very similar to the first adit we ventured into. Also, as you’ll see in the next video, this series of levels is only one section of the mine. There are adits punching into this limestone cliff all over the place – at least a dozen or possibly even more. Many of them have eroded shut or are inaccessible without technical climbing gear (as described above). However, by hiking along the base of the cliff, we were able to locate an absolutely enormous adit – again at “ground level.” This was a new section of the limestone mine for Alessio too and that will comprise the third video in this series. Interestingly, not long ago, Alessio sent me a message indicating that he had returned to this abandoned mine with some other Italians and they had discovered even more levels at this site that we had not discovered before! So, this mountain of limestone was really turned into Swiss cheese (Emmental cheese for those of you outside the United States) by the Italian miners. ***** 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 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 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

Duluth Mine Exploration - Part 2 - Lower Workings
 
12:26
LINK to Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=oIxDGfKAVYk While escaping an early Fall snowstorm in remote Nevada, we managed to find the upper and lower adits of the Duluth Mine. It's in danger of being destroyed by nearby pit mining operations, so we wanted to document as much as possible, while still being mildly entertaining. The Duluth is an old gold mine, founded sometime in the early 1900's, and often referred to as the Bruner, or one of several other names. It doesn't have quite the storied history of other mines in the area, but it was interesting to visit, even if it we had to make it hasty. Once again, I have to say - the BFG AT KO2 tires on the Blue Ox did a fine job, and all 3 trucks on this trip were running that tire in various sizes. https://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/tire/bf-goodrich/all-terrain-t-a-ko2 To answer a couple of questions, we use the Honeywell BW Clip gas meters to make sure the mine atmosphere is safe. http://www.honeywellanalytics.com/en/products/BW-Clip They can be had brand new for short money, and they can be had for even less if they have already been activated. For example, you can find them on eBay for $30-$45 with 20-22 months left on them. Pretty slick!

MOST TOXIC Locations On Earth
 
11:11
From Shanghai to the Arctic, here are the most toxic places on the planet! Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 5.Northwest Arctic | Alaska Out of all of USA states, Alaska produces the most toxins, outranking every other state by nearly 3 times. A closer look reveals that 91% of all Alaska`s emissions come from one county, Northwest Arctic, most of it originating from one city – Kotzebue, population 7,500. Just 90 miles from Kotzebue is Red Dog Mine, the largest source of zinc in the world. It was established in 1987 and each year, its activities release 756 million pounds of toxins into the environment. Most of the residents keep to a subsistence lifestyle, hunting seal and geese, and those living in the village Kivalina, 80 miles up the coast, and that much closer to the Red Dog mine, especially depend on this kind of lifestyle. The village is located near the Wulik River, a source of fish and water for villagers, and also where the mine wastewater is discharged. The mine claims that the water is fine but residents have been reporting more people getting sick, especially newborns, with illnesses they have never seen before. 4.Asse II mine | Germany The Asse II mine was opened between 1906 and 1908, initially extracting potash (until 1925) and producing rock salt (1916-1964). But during the period after 1964 until 1995 the mine was used as a storage of radioactive waste in a repository. Now, this mine has been abandoned, with barrels of low-level and medium-level waste in a jumbled heap, some of it not even contained properly. But now there`s a fear that the mine could fill with water and authorities are rushing to remove the waste with remotely operated vehicles as it might be unsafe for workers. The water is coming from the leakage caused by rock movements, which could dissolve rock salt that was used to seal the radioactive waste. Authorities fear that underwater in the region could become contaminated and are in a hurry to safely remove and store this waste before it`s too late. 3.Waste Isolation Pilot Plant | New Mexico The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant’s history is relatively short, as it became operational in 1999. The facility is used to store transuranic waste left over from nuclear weapons research. Transuranic waste consists of clothing, tools, rags, residues, debris, soil and other items contaminated with radioactive elements, mostly plutonium. After the interment of waste – which should happen somewhere between 2025 and 2035 – the caverns will be collapsed and sealed with 13 layers of concrete and salt and the waste will be completely isolated from the environment after 75 years. But after fifteen years of successful waste removal operations, the first airborne radiation release was detected beyond the sites boundaries, due to an accident that happened on February 14, 2014. The accident was caused by a barrel that exploded because contractors packed it with organic cat litter instead of clay cat litter. The plant reopened in 2017 after three years of cleanup costing $500 million. 2.Pacific Proving Grounds | Pacific Ocean Pacific Proving Grounds is the name given to a number of sites on The Marshall Islands and in the Pacific Ocean which were used for nuclear testing during the period of time between 1946 and 1962. USA conducted 105 atmospheric and underwater nuclear tests in the Pacific. On March 1, 1954 the especially destructive Castle Bravo Test was conducted. It was visible from 250 miles with a mushroom cloud stretching 60 miles across. It vaporized several small islands, left a mile-wide crater on the atoll, and generated heavy radioactive fallout across a 50,000 square mile area, including 22 populated atolls. About 36 hours after Castle Bravo, the military evacuated 28 of the servicemen, evacuating the populated atolls 51 and 76 hours after the detonation. No previous warning happened. Because of that testing, many of the islands which were part of the Pacific Proving Grounds are still contaminated by nuclear fallout. Many of the island inhabitants at the time of testing suffered from increased incidence of various types of cancers and birth defects. The radioactivity affected not only the residents of the islands but also the soldiers who were there at the time. The soldiers got to go home though, and the villagers returned to their poisoned and changed islands.
