Save Oak Flat, Arizona From Resolution Copper
 
11:24
In December, 2014 the Southeast AZ Land Exchange Act was signed into law. This bill spells destruction for Oak Flat, a National Forest campground and scenic area in Arizona. President Eisenhower set aside Oak Flat to be preserved from mining in 1955. Yet "thanks" to the underhanded work of Arizona representatives such as John McCain and Ann Kirkpatrick, this landscape including Gaan Canyon and Apache Leap is now threatened by Resolution Copper, which intends to burrow 1.5 miles below for billions in copper. This area in the Tonto National Forest is a sacred site for the San Carlos Apache Tribe which has held ceremonies here for centuries. Also beloved by climbers and hikers, Oak Flat and adjacent Gaan Canyon (aka Devil's Canyon on maps) contain an endangered Sonoran Desert riparian forest with year-round running water. Although jobs and riches for Arizona are promised by Resolution Copper, the fact remains that zero royalties on the copper will be paid to the US taxpayers, unlike oil and coal companies that must pay royalties. Job estimates have inflated wildly over the past seven years. The public remains largely opposed to this project which would send billions of dollars in American wealth overseas while Arizona is slated to earn a pittance in the form of temporary jobs. Certain side effects include contaminated water, a permanently destroyed landscape, and health issues from waste rock. This massive tailings pile is proposed for a location adjacent to the Superstition Mountain Wilderness Area. A majority of Arizona's citizens favor the idea of granting national monument status to provide permanent protection to this area. Please contact your representative about Oak Flat. Visit www.AzMiningReform.org for more information. Facebook: "Saving Oak Flat Campground" and "Apache Stronghold". ~ March 2016 Update: In a small victory for Oak Flat in the Tonto National Forest, the Obama administration decided to add Oak Flat to the National Historic Register. This adds more layers of requirements to Resolution Copper's plans, and makes it more difficult to mine. However, fuller protection in the form of a national monument is still needed. Naovember 2015 Update: Senators Bernie Sanders and original co-sponsor Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and others, introduced the Senate companion of the Save Oak Flat Act. June 2015 Update: Rep Raul Grijalva introduces the "Save Oak Flat" bill in Congress. January 2015 Update: Oak Flat's fate is in doubt with the passing of the Southeast AZ Land Exchange Act in the final vote of the 2014 Congress. The possibility of saving Oak Flat from destruction may reside with President Obama and his executive authority to protect public land. Ownership of Oak Flat remains with the USA at least for now. A White House petition asking the President to veto the bill reached the required 100k signatures in less than 1 month. The White House stated that the Obama Administration opposes the land exchange yet is willing to "work with Resolution Copper" to try to preserve Oak Flat. It may be possible for the President to establish an Oak Flat National Monument via the Antiquities Act if enough public support arises. December 2014 Update: Rep. John McCain, Paul Gosar, and Ann Kirkpatrick attached the Oak Flat Resolution Copper bill to the "must pass" defense spending bill (NDAA). This is an undemocratic maneuver, however legal, which completely bypassed Apache beliefs and public debate on this public land transfer to Rio Tinto (the parent mining company). The Tonto National Forest has nominated Oak Flat for inclusion on the National Historic Register. August 2013 update: Resolution Copper funds a recall election and ousts Superior Councilwoman Kiki Peralta because she opposed the land exchange at Oak Flat. Her replacement is an employee for a copper-related business who supports the land exchange. June 2013: Former AZ Representative Rick Renzi (R) was indicted on 17 counts of fraud and other charges stemming from his involvement with Resolution Copper. The charges were raised after Renzi offered Resolution Copper his support in the early 2000s for the land exchange involving Oak Flat. April 2013 Update: The Superior Town Council voted to officially oppose Resolution Copper. Feb. 2013 update: U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) submitted a new land exchange bill to attempt to privatize Oak Flat, AZ for Resolution Copper. She has joined forces with the entire Republican delegation in AZ including Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), who co-sponsored this latest bill with Kirkpatrick. No other democrats in AZ support Kirkpatrick in her pro-mining stance when it comes to this federally-protected recreation area.

Copper - Occupational & Environmental Exposure Concerns
 
03:37
Copper is an element and metal that occurs naturally in the environment. It has been used by humans for thousands of years and today, copper, along copper alloys and compounds, can be found in everything from jewelry, instruments (brass instruments) and coins to building materials (roofs, pipes, plumbing fixtures), electronics, wiring and motors to name just a few applications. Copper is also an essential element in plants and animals, but exposure to high levels of copper can cause health concerns. The Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR) has developed a fact sheet with information about health issues related to copper. The agency provides the following information: • People may be exposed to copper from breathing air, drinking water, eating foods or having skin contact with copper, particulates attached to copper or copper-containing compounds. • Drinking water may have high levels of copper if a house or building has copper pipes and acidic water. • Lakes and rivers that have been treated with copper compounds to control algae, or that receive cooling water from power plants, can have high levels of copper. Soils can also contain high levels of copper, especially if they are near copper smelting plants. • People may be exposed to copper by ingesting copper-containing fungicides or if they live near or work in a copper mine, where copper is processed into bronze or brass, or are involved with grinding metals containing copper. The ATSDR also reports that absorbing small amounts of copper every day is essential for good health, but high levels of copper can be harmful. Breathing high levels of copper can cause irritation of the nose and throat. Ingesting high levels of copper can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Very-high doses of copper can cause damage to the liver and kidneys, and can even cause death. These are just a few things to know about occupational and environmental exposure to copper.

Flag of Arizona, Copper State

Flag of Arizona From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Arizona flag) Jump to navigation Jump to search This article includes a list of references, but its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. (March 2011) (Learn how and when to remove this template message) Arizona Flag of Arizona.svg Use Civil and state flag Proportion 2:3 Adopted January 25, 1917; 101 years ago The flag of Arizona consists of 13 rays of red and weld-yellow on the top half, the colors of the flag of Spain, representing the 13 original U.S. states. The red and yellow also symbolize Arizona's picturesque sunsets. The copper star represents the copper mining industry in Arizona. The rest of the flag is colored blue, representing the Colorado River. The height of the flag is two units high while the width is three units wide. The sun rays at the top are divided into 13 equal segments, starting with red and alternating with gold until the rays are complete. In the center of the flag, the copper star is one unit high, while the rest of the flag is covered by blue section measuring one unit high and three units wide. The colors of red and blue are the same shade used on the flag of the United States. The specific colors of copper and gold have not been set down in law. The suggested flag size is four by six feet, with the star being two feet tall.[1] Contents [hide] 1 History 2 See also 3 References 4 External links History[edit] The specific colors of the copper-colored star have not been set down in law. State flag in Slide Rock State Park near Sedona, Arizona The state of Arizona's website, museum, and official materials cite the following origins of the Arizona flag: Charles Wilfred Harris, Colonel in the Arizona National Guard, served as the captain of the unit’s rifle team in 1910. During the rifle competition at Camp Perry, Ohio, the Arizona team was the only team without an emblem of any kind. Colonel Harris was chiefly responsible for the creation of the rifle team flag that in 1917 became the Arizona State Flag. Blue and gold are the colors of Arizona. Red and gold are the colors carried by Coronado’s Expedition of 1540 to the Seven Cities of Cibola. The blue is "liberty blue" identical to the color in the United States flag field of stars. Since Arizona is a western state, the rays of the setting sun seemed appropriate. There are thirteen rays representing the original "thirteen colonies". The large copper star identifies Arizona as the largest producer of copper in the United States. "On February 27, 1917, the legislature passed the bill to adopt this flag as the official Arizona State Flag despite dissenting votes and Governor Campbell’s refusal to affix his signature to the bill." While Colonel Harris is credited with the creation of the Rifle Team flag, several individuals appear to have
Date night!  Exploring a NEW, old mine. (gold found)
 
19:19
The Golconda mine dates back from 1899 and is primarily a copper mine but has shown some great gold values and has some very close by gold showings. This hard rock mine has been worked on and off for more than 100 years. I know of 5 old adits (mine shafts) on this claim, but there may be more, and even these 5 may have all been sealed off. We tested some of the hard rock crush around the old mill site by panning the crush in the small creek close by. There was a few specks of gold in the gold pan. Enough to give us hopes to find some in the old crush piles. Another hope for this claim is to find some native copper.

Unusual Abandoned Copper Mine In The Nevada Desert - Part 1
 
19:20
Exploring this abandoned copper mine gives one a good sense for how a mole’s life must feel… The side of the hill we’re exploring in this video looked like a series of molehills on someone’s lawn and the network of drifts underground must approximate the warren of tunnels connecting molehills. There are certain mines that never seem to disappoint us and copper mines and tungsten mines certainly stand strong in that category. Eventual disappointment is, of course, inevitable, but we have had very good success with abandoned mines that mined these minerals so far. The most documentation I could find on this mine dates back to around World War I and so that was presumably the peak in production for this historic site. Obviously, some activity has taken place since then. However, this appears to be more on the scale of tests and sampling. We did not see any evidence of actual mining taking place within at least the past several decades. I read later that the large shaft I tossed the rock down has three different drift levels running off of it. This series has two parts and in the second part, you’ll see something that I think is rather unusual… In fact, I have never seen anything like it before at any of the other mines we have visited. Even the limited records available on this mine mention this feature. So, it did not just get my attention, but that of professionals as well. Music provided by ツ https://goo.gl/98QLLw ***** 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

SPECIAL NOTE: While this type of exploration is almost always kilometers back in deep forest, it cannot always be guaranteed that the land we are hiking is public (Crown). These forgotten old mines/claims are almost always over 100 years old. It is also common that most mine workings have some kind of natural cave-in covering their mouth, after nearly a century of erosion. So some explores may involve preparation of clearing that cave-in, and/or dealing with letting spring water (flooding) out of the adits. These facts, along with the inherent danger of abandoned mines, force us to remain anonymous. We are responsible for our own risks & actions (not yours), but be clear we are not promoting this activity. Only showing you what we do. As with any typical Urban Exploration type channel, our faces and commentary will always be masked. If you are seeing an Episode, it means we are already month(s) finished with that site and never going back. The delay is intentional, as nothing shown here will be in realtime. It cannot be stressed enough - abandoned mines can pose a ton of lethal threats. *We are not kids looking for kicks* Keep in mind that our group is made up of responsible adults, each with specific skills, and cross-Canada experience with over 75+ mine walks. Most 10 times larger and deeper than will ever be found in Nova Scotia! Specific research is always done beforehand. Required equipment and backups are a must. While it is indeed possible to safely spelunk an abandoned mine, DO NOT ENTER A MINE without being experienced, or going with an experienced explorer.

Exploring the Historic Emma Copper Mine in Acton, California
 
15:58
Los Angeles County Mines #1: The Emma Mine is an abandoned copper mine off of Soledad Canyon road in Acton California. It was worked from 1889 to the 1940s by various mining companies including the Emma Consolidated Mining Company, the Highland Mining Syndicate, the Bournite Mining Company, and the Allen Mines Company. On this trip I explored two adits (a horizontal passage going into a mine) in a side canyon west of the main mining area. One was rather short and filled with garbage while the other was reported to be 500 ft long by a rockhounding article from a 1950’s magazine. It turned out to be around 200 ft long, and it appeared to have not been entered in at least a couple decades, due to the fact that it had to be dug out. It was easily the most interesting tunnel I explored on this expedition, as it contained some historical miner’s graffiti. Up the same side canyon was a collapsed adit that I figured must not be very extensive due to the relatively small waste rock pile. Also in this vicinity is a small vertical shaft that I did not explore on this trip. After exploring the side canyon, I hiked to the main mining complex on the south side of the mountain where there are two explorable adits. These were difficult to film as they were very hot and humid, causing my lens to fog up. I also got footage of the old leaching tanks, where the copper ore was processed. I have been exploring abandoned mines since I was eight years old. It has been a continuous hobby of mine, and I particularly enjoy the historical aspect of it. I’ve finally decided to start sharing my explorations with others, beginning with the location that started my interest of exploring mines in the first place. This is my first YouTube video and with this channel, I will uncover more forgotten mines in California and hopefully extend my explorations to other areas of the American Southwest.
DRIVING THROUGH JEROME ARIZONA
 
03:37
Jerome is a town located in the Black Hills of Yavapai County in Arizona. It was established in the 1870's on Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley and Sedona. It is about 100 miles north of Phoenix along State Route 89A between Sedona and Prescott Valley. Supported in its heyday by rich copper mines, it was home to more than 15,000 people in the 1900s. As of the 2013 census, its population was 449. Jerome is unique in the fact that the entire town is actually sliding down the mountain at a rate of 2" to 3" per year. Gravity has pulled several buildings down already including the old jail. Thanks for watching!!! ► Please take a moment to SUBSCRIBE and give that thumbs up button some love!!

Deep Blue Mystery Mineral Inside An Abandoned Mine In Nevada
 
18:54
Well, getting to this abandoned mine proved the old adage about how you’ve got to want it… We drove as far as we could down rough dirt roads in a remote part of Nevada until even the 4WD with high clearance couldn’t go any farther. Then, we switched over to dirt bikes and rode those for many miles through the mountains until it was impossible to proceed even on the bikes. At that point, I descended the steep canyon on foot to finally reach this mine. There was certainly no road leading all of the way to the mine and there wasn’t even a trail that I saw after the road stopped. It was pure bushwhacking getting down to explore this one. Given how hard it was to get to this mine and given the fact that I lugged the drone all of the way down to the bottom of the canyon meant that you were getting drone footage in this video even if the drone had never left the ground! I didn’t see any signs of heavy equipment having been at this site (which is not surprising considering the location), but it still would have been quite a feat just bringing in the rail for the ore carts as well as the tools the miners would have needed. And if they used metal ore carts, these would HAVE to have been brought to the mine in pieces and reassembled on site. The cabin/workshop was somewhat interesting to me. I didn’t see any signs of a bed or really any signs that the miners had lived there aside from those couple of rusty cans that we saw inside. Also, that structure would not have been a pleasant place to stay in the winter! However, it would have been impossible for someone to commute in to this mine given the distances involved. So, someone must have stayed here. Given how this seemed like something of a shoestring mining operation, it makes me wonder if a couple of miners didn’t just sleep rough inside of that structure of corrugated metal during the warmer months along with their tools and that primitive fireplace to keep away the cold at night. The miners might have just worked here for a couple of seasons. While exploring this abandoned mine and its surroundings, I saw no evidence at all that anyone has visited this site in decades. The “road” – if you can even call it that – which runs closest to the site was completely overgrown and sections of it were blocked by small rockslides. All traces of whatever trail that might have once existed and descended to the mine have vanished. And, of course, there were no footprints or signs of modern human activity such as trash or tire marks within many miles of this abandoned mine. It isn’t often that one is able to visit a historical site like that in our modern era. I was quite taken with that brilliant, deep blue mystery mineral inside of the mine... I have never seen anything like it outside of the fine lapis lazuli that is mined in Afghanistan. However, I don’t believe that what we saw inside of the mine was lapis lazuli… Was it? I sincerely hope that someone in the audience can definitively identify it. ***** 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. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Maynard James Keenan: The Art of Work Pt. 1 (Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Caduceus Cellars)
 
07:52
WATCH THE FULL SERIES HERE: https://bit.ly/2HgpaVv Tucked in the Black Hills of Yavapai County, Arizona, Jerome has long attracted intrepid characters. In the late 1800s, prospectors descended on the historic town looking to capitalize on its rich copper mines. Over a hundred years later, a different type of pioneer arrived: Maynard James Keenan. The Tool, Puscifer and A Perfect Circle frontman has carved out a uniquely anti-rock-star life in this rugged terrain, filled with winemaking, farming and community building. For two days this past July, Keenan extended a very special invitation to Revolver to join him during this summer's grape harvest. In Episode 1 of our multi-part series, he reveals how his work in Jerome helps create the friction that ignites his creativity.

Abandoned Aerial Tramway & Mine In The Nevada Desert
 
19:25
We have discovered the remains of aerial tramways at abandoned mines in the U.S. before, but this is the first intact one that we have found. Usually, what we find are very faint remnants – a wooden support for the system, for example, or jumbles of cable. In fact, the only mine exploring video of ours from the U.S. that features anything connected to an aerial tramway is from the Oro Fino Mine (one of our early videos). As I often say, abandoned mines have a lot of forces working against them, such as natural erosion, forest fires, self-serving government agencies and other vandals. The more extreme the environment, the harder it is (obviously) on the historical mine. As aerial tramways for mining operations are usually needed high up on steep mountains, their very purpose is to exist in an extreme environment. So, it isn’t exactly a surprise that they are something of a rarity in the realm of historical abandoned mines. Italy has made heavy use of aerial tramways in their mining operations and so I have come across several – both at abandoned and active mines - there. The most recent Italian mine we visited, the Buca della Vena, had a large tram system (If you’re curious, it’s in the first video in that series). Those aerial tramways that I have seen are all at more contemporary mines though. So, they haven’t really had a chance to come apart yet as we are used to in the United States. So, in short, it is a treat to see this intact aerial tramway at what is actually a fairly old mine by American standards. Yet again, the desert has come through for us in preserving this historical treasure. I appreciate the opportunity to see how all of the parts of this system operated and worked together. Obviously, the miners were dropping ore down to the main haulage adit where the aerial tramway starts. When I was inside of the mine, I was thinking that perhaps the ore was being dumped down that shaft. However, that doesn’t make sense with all of those ladders and the woodwork in there because it would have been smashed to pieces if they started dumping ore down the shaft. So, I’m thinking that was only used as a manway since scrambling up the steep mountain is difficult and somewhat treacherous given all of the loose rock. Instead, it would have been much easier for the miners to ride the aerial tramway up to the mine from the valley below and to then climb up the ladders inside of the mine to access the upper levels they wanted to reach. For those of you that are not as familiar with mining, the miners would have dumped the waste rock out of the front of each of the levels we visited. The good stuff (the valuable ore), would have been dropped down to the main haulage adit to be trammed to the valley floor. So, I believe that those winzes we saw in each level (except for the top one) must have served to ferry the ore down to the bottom adit. As crazy as it seems, that large ore chute that I climbed up for a short distance on the bottom level, might run all of the way up to the level above. I assumed it just ran up to a large stope, but how else would they have gotten the ore down from the upper levels? What looked like a plugged winze on the level above may have been the plugged ore chute in the main haulage adit. If the prospect they began on the very top where I started had run into any good ore, they would have kept tunneling into the mountain and would have driven a passage from there as well to dump ore down (separate from the manway/shaft that we saw up there). There was a lot of work put into driving that manway up to that top level and constructing that platform of stones up there, by the way. All for nothing! Unfortunately, that is a common theme for miners. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

Ep.41  The Abandoned ERINVILLE COPPER MINE
 
05:42
EPISODE 41: Scant information could be found about this well-hidden mine, back in the forests of Guysborough County... but the visit was well worth the effort. A gorgeous riverside setting, and spooky little Nova Scotian abandoned mine. (MORE INFO BELOW) We are a group of Abandoned Mine explorers in Nova Scotia. Abandoned Mine Hunting is somewhat of a cross between the hobby of urban exploration, caving (spelunking), and history enthusiast. If this is your kind of thing, be sure to subscribe so you will always be informed of each new episode. IF YOU KNOW OF AN ABANDONED MINE IN ATLANTIC CANADA, we'd love to hear from you. Send a private message. We may just come and do an explore and episode featuring your site ! ** BEST VIEWED using the YouTube app on a full size SmartTV ** SPECIAL NOTE: While this type of exploration is almost always kilometers back in deep forest, it cannot always be guaranteed that the land we are hiking is public (Crown). These forgotten old mines/claims are almost always over 100 years old. It is also common that most mine workings have some kind of natural cave-in covering their mouth, after nearly a century of erosion. So some explores may involve preparation of clearing that cave-in, and/or dealing with letting spring water (flooding) out of the adits. These facts, along with the inherent danger of abandoned mines, force us to remain anonymous. We are responsible for our own risks & actions (not yours), but be clear we are not promoting this activity. Only showing you what we do. As with any typical Urban Exploration type channel, our faces and commentary will always be masked. If you are seeing an Episode, it means we are already weeks or month(s) finished with that site and never going back. The delay is intentional, as nothing shown here will be in realtime. It cannot be stressed enough - abandoned mines or mine sites can pose a ton of lethal threats. *We are not kids looking for kicks* Keep in mind that our group is made up of responsible adults, each with specific skills, and cross-Canada experience with over 100+ mine walks. Most 10 times larger and deeper than will ever be found in Nova Scotia! Specific research is always done beforehand. Required equipment and backups are a must. While it is indeed possible to safely explore an abandoned mine, DO NOT ENTER A MINE without being experienced, or going with an experienced explorer. If you don't know what you're doing, STAY OUT STAY ALIVE is the best policy. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines
