California gold mining - http://www.california-gold-rush-miner.us California gold mining display at the natural history Museum in Balboa Park San Diego. Many people do not realize that not only gold was mind in San Diego, but also San Diego has some major tourmaline mines. Yes, there is still active tourmaline mines in San Diego County and a couple of small-scale gold-mining operations. But, just east of San Diego Imperial County, there is an active gold mine that's been in operation for a number of years, and currently is running 24/7. Recreational gold prospecting, or gold-mining is a great hobby and a terrific way to see the backcountry and learn about the history of the area. When gold prospecting, you need good equipment to save time & help in finding gold nuggets by removing trash.

34 Million dollars worth of gold was taken from the earth at the Kennedy Gold Mine. It was one of the deepest gold mines of all time, and is now a tourist attraction where you can take surface tours and learn about everything above ground that turned these tunnels and caves into one of the most lucrative gold mines in the entire gold rush. The Kennedy Gold Mine was right in the heart of The Mother Lode, which was the vein of gold that basically started the California Gold Rush.

Diltz Mine, Whitlock District, Mariposa Co., California, USA Crystalline Native Gold specimens have always represented a very small percent of the world's production. This is chiefly due to the existence of mines with huge tonnages of low-grade ore, where low grade is made up for by the sheer volume of material processed per diem. This rarity of crystal material has led to specimens of high-grade Gold being valued using different criteria than simple estimates of weight value based on spot prices. There are single crystal Native Gold specimens with less than 20 ounces of contained Gold that have sold for seven figures. Which brings us to this lovely crystalline confection from the Diltz Mine. It combines the features of several types of specimen Native Gold: leaf and crystal. The overall form is that of 'leaf' type, where thin sheets of Gold are deposited in narrow fractures, and the only possible direction to grow is laterally. Meanwhile, the Gold is also trying to form crystals in these same open spaces; only the space is narrrow so the Gold grows the only way it can: sideways, generating leaves of crystals. The shining faces of these crystals, and the rich buttery color of high Karat Gold, conspires with the presence of a white matrix to provide a complementary shift in luster, color and texture. This significant specimen has great pedigree: it was on display at the Sterling Hill Mining Museum as part of the Dick Hauck collection, as well as being in the Harvard Mineralogical Museum before that. The condition of this specimen, which weighs 4.87 troy ounces, is absolutely pristine. It comes with a custom, labeled acrylic base. As a side note: This probably came to Harvard during the mine's active period. This is the same Diltz Mine that yielded 21,135 ounces of Gold between 1924 and 1954. Estimated total spot value at the time was between $750,000 and $1,000,000. For comparison, the same amount at today's prices would be worth around $29 million at spot. Overall Measurements: 4.01 x 2.63 x 0.98 inches (10.2 x 6.7 x 2.51 cm)

There is quite a lot to this abandoned mine site and so while I found a fair amount when I was wandering around on my own, I still missed interesting pieces of mining equipment that Michael showed me the next day. Further, I’m quite confident that there is plenty more scattered around in the brush or underneath the ruined buildings that we both missed. Eventually, forest fires will roar through all of the areas where these abandoned mines we document are located. When that happens, many hidden adits and pieces of metal equipment that were hidden away in brush will be revealed. It certainly isn’t in any way worth having a forest fire for, but it is an interesting side effect. As I mentioned in the prior video in this series, credit for our trip to this mine site goes to Gold Country Explorers. They get out in the forests (mostly in California’s Gold Country) and have an uncanny knack for tracking down stamp mills and other impressive elements of our industrial history – not to mention, a fair number of adits too! Check out their site – they post some great pictures on there: https://www.facebook.com/Gold-Country-Explorers-850167371691275/ It felt good to discover that adit that the Forest Service missed near the top of the hill. They are pretty thorough, but some things are not easy to spot in the forest and many adits are not marked on the topographic map. As I mentioned in the video, I’d like to show you the portal and how this adit was essentially hiding in plain sight. However, if I post that, the Forest Service will be able to find it pretty easily and will be out there as soon as the snow melts to gate it. So, I reluctantly declined to share the view from the outside. Like I said in the video, we need to preserve some of our industrial history outside of a museum. I also think it is important to maintain at least something in the way of the spirit of adventure and the excitement of discovery in our increasingly fearful and risk-averse society. The site of the shaft that we visited toward the end of the video was so badly degraded that I mistakenly speculated that it was an adit (easy to do when there were adits all over the place). However, my subsequent research demonstrated that it was, in fact, a shaft. I could not find many records on it, but the shaft dropped down for almost four hundred feet and apparently had two levels to tap into the hard rock gold veins underground. The large waste rock pile all around that section is supposed to be from the shaft. I’m not sure how the ore was transported from the shaft to the mill, but I’d be curious to know. ***** 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

Los Angeles County Mines #4: The Union Mine is a historic gold mine located in Acton, Ca. What makes this mine so amazing is the fact that a 5-stamp mill still stands on site. A stamp mill is a device that crushes ore using heavy metal rods known as stamps. According to an old newspaper article, the mill was built in 1898, making it over 120 years old. Records of the Union Mine before 1893 are sparse, but it apparently produced a lot during this time period. The Union mine was also worked from 1893 to 1900, and again in 1934 and 1940. Like many others in the area, this mine was once owned by the former governor of California, Henry T. Gage. A few hundred yards northwest of the mill is an open shaft that I’m pretty sure was part of the Union Mine complex. I believe the main shaft was much closer to the mill, but it has been long filled in.

The Stonewall Mine was named after General "Stonewall" Jackson. At one time, this was the most productive gold mine in these parts, producing approximately $2 million in gold equivalent to over $60 million at today's market value. The town of Cuyamaca had a population of about 500 who all quickly disappeared when the mine shut down.

The first significant gold rush in the United States was in Cabarrus County, North Carolina (east of Charlotte), in 1799 at today's Reed's Gold Mine. Thirty years later, in 1829, the Georgia Gold Rush in the southern Appalachians occurred. It was followed by the California Gold Rush of 1848–55 in the Sierra Nevada, which captured the popular imagination.

My guest, Randy Bold, the Guide at the California State Mining and Mineral Museum (among many other duties) talks about The State Collection and mining in our community's history. The Museum is an important Gem and Mineral specimen collection and contains many important world class specimens. Additionally, the Museum is an important educational resource to the Mariposa County residents/school children but also serves students from around the state. The exhibits inform and educate students about the chemical make-up of various rocks found in nature and explains natural geological processes that occur in our earth and are part of an on-going process. Randy, at one time, worked as a science teacher and has a solid understanding of the "science" of geology. He is also an avid historian and takes visitors, and students alike, through the process of mining and mineral processing and can explain the historical development of our mining technology. Overall, this world class Museum is a major cultural resource in OUR community and Randy Bolt is a very interesting and enthusiastic man in charge of making sure that the Museum visitor has an enjoyable experience in Mariposa's important cultural desplay.

This beautiful piece of landscape is part of the Cherokee mining operation that occurred around the 1860s. It is the only diamond mine in California, and the site where the first diamond was found in California. The mine was discovered in 1852 by pioneers being led there by Indians! Fast forward to the 1870s and Cherokee was famous for being the largest hydraulic mine in the U.S. mining both gold, and diamonds. Over 50 million dollars of gold made its way out of these mountains during 1852 to around 1890 when mining stopped. California put in laws to stop all hydraulic mining around 1890 due to concerns over the environment. Once even the president Rutherford Hayes even stopped by to visit the mines in 1880, that’s how big an operation it was! The local township really was one of the famous gold rush boom towns of California at its peak boasting a population of thousands. Now when I went there, the only thing remaining was a museum that’s only open 2 days a year, and the boarded up historic post office, so it’s pretty desolate now. While the people have departed the beautiful landscape remains for us to discover. I hope you enjoy the sight of these once prosperous mines.

This gold mining claim was first discovered in 1898 and expanded by further discoveries of "veins of minimal bearing quartz" in the following years. In 1900 J.E. Canter discovered 1500 linear feet by 600 feet wide of load and proclaimed that this claim will be known as "Golden Gate". Between 1900 and 1902 the mine was purchased by Ed F. Donovan and Joe A. Brown and they began constructing tunnels, trails, chutes and reforming the wagon road. Brown and Donovan owned and operated the mine from 1902 to 1927 even though the mine was idle through much of the latter years. Miners hand drilled ore from quartz veins within five adit tunnels ranging from 300 to 1800 feet and the shipped it down a 2300 foot aerial tramway to the ten stamp mill. The water powered stamp mill pulverized the ore and then extracted the gold using mercury. The Golden Gate Mine produced the only gold in the West Walker River Mining District. In 1908 the mine boasted a net of more that $12 a ton causing the Mono County industry report to claim, Between September 1912 and April 1913, six thousand eight-hundred and forty eight tons of ore were crushed yielding $33,646. This is quite an accomplishment considering the mill and most of the buildings were destroyed numerous times by avalanches.

The Right Time for an Informed Investor! CALIFORNIA GOLD & SILVER MINE ___Standard Hill Mines Company___ Is an independent claim holder in Kern County, California. Standard Hill Mines owns a group of five patented and 14 unpatented mining claims, approximately 300 + acres, about 3 miles south of Mojave, 65 miles north of Los Angeles, California. From its discovery in 1894 until underground mining finished in 1956, it is estimated that Standard Hill Mines produced approximately 150,000 oz gold and approximately 500,000 oz silver, from over 15,000 ft of horizontal drifts and stopes to a depth of 900ft down the dip of the mineralization. During open pit mining by Shell Oil Co. (Shell)/Billiton Minerals (Billiton) from 1987 to 1990 it is estimated an additional 77,500 oz of gold and 258,000 oz of silver were produced. Standard Hill Mines is a well documented, historical producer. It lies within the Mojave Mining District that has been active for almost 120 years. The property has not had any exploration activity performed on it since mining was completed in 1990 by Shell/Billiton. Historical records, as well as the exploration database created by Shell/Billiton during its exploration in the 1980s, indicate that the property still has potential for more economic mineralization. The property is currently leased to Granite Construction of California for the extraction of non-mineralized aggregate and rock. In December 2013, Tetra Tech was commissioned to complete a technical review of Standard Hill Mines property.

http://usa.amateurtraveler.com/laws-railroad-museum-video/ Visit the Laws Railroad Museum in Laws, California with the Amateur Traveler: This video shows the small out of the way Laws Railroad Museum which has collected trains, farm equipment, artifacts and even buildings from around the Owens Valley area in the Eastern Sierras of California. The museum has a working train from the Death Valley Railroad which runs on a very short track. The Laws Railroad Museum also has a gold mining exhibit which is featured in this video. Various machines were used to pulverize gold ore into smaller and smaller rocks until it is a fine sand. This sand is then combined with mercury which binds with the gold to form an amalgam the density of toothpaste that can be collected and further refined to separate the gold from the mercury.

About this item specifically~ This is a very rare treat for any opal collector interested in building a good collection. Nowak opal comes from a small single source (has been called the "Last Chance Mine") near Mojave, California, USA. It was never a commercially viable source and is no longer found on the market at all. This material formed in an isolated few of the porous spaces (amygdules) in basaltic volcanic vugs and of those, a very very small number show colorplay. You can dig through many pounds of hard, brittle and sharp rock to find one tiny little nodule of this orangy looking material. There are lots of filled voids that contain non-gem whitish or even yellow-orange common opal but it is almost always in tiny pieces and rarely cuttable, even when void of colorplay. To find any colorplay is special but to find one large enough and with consistent colorplay and quality to cut a stone of this large size is extremely rare, indeed. This is by far the largest piece we found in several days worth of wishful, backbreaking searching through a huge quantity of the raw basalt years ago. Finding one like this is like finding a huge gold nugget during several years' worth of metal detecting. This gem has a relatively even-colored semicrystal base with unusually vivid base color and outstanding precious colorplay throughout. This one is one of the tough ones for any collector to acquire these days and the wonderful "wearability" of this piece as a cut and finished example, not to mention the size and quality makes it highly desirable for a discriminating devotee. It was cut in 2009 (after several years of debate) and is truly a priceless rarity you will not see again on the market. It weighs about 1.85 carats and measures about 9.1mm x 7.8mm x 4.2mm aprx. This ExoticOpal is being offered as an exceptional rarity and keystone for a comprehensive collector. It is priced at $2500 per carat~ $4488~ Thanks~ExoticOpal

The Jualpa Mining Camp, also known as the Last Chance Basin Camp, is a former gold mining camp, just outside the city of Juneau, Alaska. Its main building is now operated as the Last Chance Mining Museum by the Gastineau Historical Society. The camp was located on the southern banks of Gold Creek, about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Juneau, near what is now the end of Basin Road. The camp was the site of one of the largest gold finds in the Juneau mining district. It was established between 1910 and 1913 by the Alaska-Juneau Gold Mining Company and operated until 1944, producing more than $80 million worth of gold. The largest surviving structure of the camp is its air compressor building, which was 84 feet (26 m) long, and still houses the compressor used by the company. Also surviving are a variety of railroad-related resources, which the company used to bring or to its mill on the Gastineau channel, an electrical transformer house, powder magazine, and cable hoist.
