Gold-Rich & High: Quartz Vein To The Sky
I struggled to come up with a descriptive title for this video. How to explain that incredible quartz vein – narrow, pure and running up so high that it went out of sight – that the gold miners chased? To me, it really did seem as if it ran to the sky… I have seen where miners have chased rich veins of quartz for impressive distances before, but I have never seen a quartz vein that was a solid slab running vertically to the heights that this one did. Another differentiating factor is that this vein must have been full of gold. One sees sections of quartz in many lode gold mines, but it is barren and so the miners leave it behind. This was different. In this mine, the miners cleared the whole vein out! Consider the – not one, but two – stamp mills outside, consider the effort the miners expended to reach that quartz vein and then to chase it up (the miners would have been drilling overhead the entire time in a space not much more than three feet wide), consider the expensive rail in this mine… The old timers were not stupid. They would not have spent that much money, they would not have done that much work and they would not have taken out that much quartz unless the gold to be found in that incredible quartz vein was worth it. And remember, that quartz vein was the only part of the mine where the miners took any ore out. Yet, they still required two stamp mills! I did not locate production numbers for this mine, but one can only imagine what was taken out. I don’t know how the miners discovered this deposit, especially as they located it before modern drilling and other technology the miners of today have at their disposal. I hiked down from the direction this mine runs and there was no sign of that quartz deposit on the surface. There were the remains of even older mining operations on the way down – the faint remains of a stamp mill, bits of metal, some surface work - and so maybe the miners had an inkling there was something below, but I don’t know what gave them the confidence to start blasting back for thousands of feet in a perfectly straight line. That was a major effort! Abandoned mining equipment is always interesting to me, but I was even more taken with the equipment at the outside of this mine as I had not heard of either of those companies – Krogh Manufacturing and Globe Iron Works – before. Usually, one will start to recognize the familiar names like Ingersoll Rand or Miners Foundry, but those names were new to me and, therefore, presumably older. The dates of the patents would seem to confirm this. The oxygen meter I was using at the time I explored this mine would alert when oxygen levels fell below 19.5%. However, it did not display what the actual percentage of oxygen was. Lower levels of oxygen are tolerable, but not MUCH lower levels. Without knowing what the actual percentage of oxygen was, I had to just judge the oxygen levels and safety by the symptoms I was experiencing. That’s pushing it a bit, but you’ve got to want it to see the treasures in life. I was alone on this trip, but with bad air it hardly matters if you are one person or a hundred. If you collapse from bad air, the guy behind you can’t grab you or he’ll succumb too. You’re done. It’s not like falling and breaking your leg or something where having someone else there will make a difference. So, it is important to pay close attention to the symptoms... With this particular oxygen meter it would stop working after alerting and being reset several times in the low O2 environment. Fortunately, the O2 meter I use now shows the exact percentage of oxygen so I can make a more informed decision on whether to proceed or not. In this mine, the low oxygen was almost certainly caused by the rotting timbers. I am glad that I didn’t turn around. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines

Historic Gold Dredge on the Yankee Fork – between Bonanza-Custer, Idaho
The Yankee Fork Gold Dredge in Idaho USA is one of the best preserved and presented California-type bucket-line gold dredges in the lower 48 states. Running for seven years between 1940 and 1952 she and her crew extracted over one million dollars of feather gold for the Snake River Mining Company. Vandals stripped her of all precious equipment and metals while she sat idle between 1952 and 1980. The Yankee Fork Gold Dredge Association was formed in 1980 to preserve this massive piece of our mining history. Interior tours are provided by volunteers each summer between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Our exploration and knowledge of the Yankee Fork Gold Dredge was greatly enhanced by our two volunteer guides, Rich Allen and Earl VanPatten. They made us feel like family during our four hour visit. The information presented was custom tailored to our interests and time allotted. The interior tour should not be missed by any historical or mining enthusiast.

Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc.® presents the Silver Rock Mine©, Idaho
Another great property brought to you by Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc.® When you are ready to start your mining operation, think of us first! There is very limited information regarding the property. It was reportedly located in or around 1903. Initial silver outcrops turned out to be very limited and the claims were abandoned by 1905. Placer gold was located in 1906 in Castle Creek, placer operations were executed and miners worked up Castle Creek to the source of the gold. According to historical and local oral communication, gold was located in and around the Silver Rock Mine in 1910. An adit portal was driven 1500’ horizontally with a crosscut of 2000’ at 400’. Gold ore was found in oxidized iron and quartz veins. Gold was free-milling and required little processing beyond crushing and shaker tables. For those with a serious interest in the property we offer full technical reports on our properties.

Lion City and Hecla Mines - A Montana Ghost Town - near Melrose, Montana MT
Lion City and Hecla Mines - A Montana Ghost Town - near Melrose, Montana MT Join us for a 15 mile journey starting at Melrose, traveling west through Glendale and working our way up Trapper Creek drainage to Lion City and Hecla Mines located 9,000 feet above sea-level. The road was a bit rough in some places and excellent in others. A high clearance vehicle or an ATV is recommended. No cars, motorhomes or tow trailers should attempt this road. This was my first visit to Lion City. A few years ago I captured the ghost town of Glendale (with the smelter chimney stack) https://youtu.be/uUFBsN7JWvs and the charcoal kilns (in the next drainage) https://youtu.be/SEig14IpEds with my first drone. We couldn’t have asked for a better day! The weather was grand but we had some wind (the drone could care less)! We had six cameras taking stills and video. I could have made this video over two hours long but then again, who would want to watch it? My goal was to produce a 7 minute video but I could only compress it down to 14 minutes to tell my story. The Hecla Mines on Lion Mountain are amazing. You can see adits (openings to horizontal mines) to 20 miles of underground tunnels. Miners had to climb stairs to enter these openings in order to go to work extracting ore that contained silver, lead and copper. The ore was transported to the stamp mill four miles away by overhead cable cars and then transported to Glendale for smelting. All the trees you see have grown since the 1890’s since all timber was stripped from the hills to feed the smelters blast furnaces. Silver mining came to a virtual standstill with the repeal of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act in 1893. Sporadic mining occurred until 1922. This sequence was captured with a GoPro Hero5 Session (front view), Mobius action cam (inside view), DJI Phantom 3 Advanced (aerial views), Canon Vixia HFS100 (cabin views), Panasonic camera (mine views) and a Samsung Galaxy 5 (miscellaneous views). Editing was completed with Adobe Premier. Many thanks to Peter, my friend from Austria and his dog Emily for the entertainment and most of the still images used in this production.

Abandoned Scratch Awl Silver Mine near Philipsburg, Montana MT
The abandoned Scratch Awl Silver Mine near Philipsburg, Montana was first developed in the 1870’s. It was misspelled Scratch-All after the original survey but both names refer to this site on Granite Mountain just east of Philipsburg. From the Montana Department of Environmental Quality web site: "The Scratch Awl was one of the first silver lodes discovered in the district, and recorded production in 1875 when it was worked in a small way in association with the Salmon lode. By 1907 the workings were inaccessible. The mine was reopened in 1917, when it supplied a moderate amount of manganese for the war effort. The mine recorded production nearly every year between 1919 and 1927. Between 1928 and 1939 the mine was reported to have produced 50,000 tons of manganese ore and 60,000 tons of silver-zinc ore. By 1939 the mine was the most active in the district. The mine is developed through a 500 foot shaft with three levels with 8,000 feet of workings. On the 500 foot level the mine is connected to the True Fissure lode to the north and to the Cliff lode on the west." The work was brutal but the pay was steady. The mine was operated by the Silver Prince Co. in the 1920’s and by Contact Mining Co. through the 1960’s when it closed. Most of the shop buildings have collapsed due to winter snowfall, but the main cable building and the change house (dry house) building still stands with their roofs intact. After shift showers were a welcomed relief since the underground work was hot, dusty and dirty. This site is on private property so please respect the owners’ rights and take only pictures, leave only footprints. Speaking of footprints, please watch your step! A lot of rusty nails are just waiting for your footprint! Please do not climb the structures since they are well beyond safe condition and could collapse. Also respect the fencing around the main shaft since it was placed there for your safety. Many thanks to my friend Rick from the Granite County Museum and Cultural Center. Rick provided transportation, access and insight to this historical site. Please visit the museum in Philipsburg on your next journey through the valley.

Historic Gold Dredge - Gold Creek, Montana MT
This historic gold dredge is a California-type bucket line dredge. It was operated by the Pioneer Dredge Company from 1933 to 1941. In its eight year operation it produced almost 40,000 ounces of gold. It is significant since it is in fair condition and it is one of the few dredges left in Montana. The dredge is sitting in its dredge pond and is mostly intact, complete with the bucket boom in front and the tailing boom in the rear. The pin that the dredge pivots on can still be seen attached to the back of the rig. The dredge is 30 x 65 feet and is 30 feet tall. It is located on private land so please respect the property owner rights and this fragile piece of Montana mining history. Please comment if you know the name of this dredge or other details.

We were fortunate to have met a representative of the land owner who granted us access to bring you this unusually intact relic of Montana mining history. In 1938 the Gold Creek Mining Company installed an electrically powered, connected-bucket dredge on Washington Bar. The dredge, called The Peggy, operated each season from August, 1938 to November, 1942. During the five years of operation a total of 9,182 fine ounces of gold was recovered (Winchell 1914; Lyden 1948). This sequence was captured with a Canon Vixia HFS-100 video camera and a GoPro Hero3 Black on a DJI Phantom quad copter (drone). It was edited with Adobe Premier Pro 6.

Cousin Jack Gold Mine - Montana - 2016
The Cousin Jack is a remote gold mine, located in Montana's Sheridan Mining District, on a parallel vein to the Cousin Jennie mine. According to historical documents, the mine was located in the 1930s and began production at that time. The adit entrance to the mine has been purposefully blocked, so it will require some digging to gain access. Track extends from the covered mine portal entrance, and past the sole remaining wall of an old cabin. Even from the short amount of time spent here, our survey team was able to find plenty of good ore scattered about. Chance are that with more time and exploration, the new claim owner could discover many rich gold deposits within the Cousin Jack Mine.

California Gold Mine "For Sale" Cherry Hill Mine
There’s Gold In Them Hills! The Right Time for an Informed Investor! CALIFORNIA GOLD MINE “ For Sale “ ___Cherry Hill Mine___ The Cherry Hill Mine: Established in 1892, a formerly producing, small underground high-grade gold mine. One of the benefits of purchasing a past-producing mine is that the cost of moving into production is much lower than the cost of bringing a mine from the exploration phase to the production phase. Location: When thinking of mines you tend to visualize a hard-to-reach, remote, backcountry hillsides that require vast amounts of money to ensure adequate infrastructure. That isn’t the case with Cherry Hill. Because Cherry Hill is a formerly producing mine, all the infrastructure is already there. That means you have a leg up on some of the costs involved with getting the mine up and running. The mine is just a short ride from the town of Yreka, California, down a state-operated, paved road that turns into a well-maintained gravel road. It's easy to get to and has great access to the I-5, a major artery running north-south along the West Coast. It also means that when you do ramp up production, the heavy-duty trucks won't have much of an issue getting the ore from the mine to the mill. Historical Geological Reports: 1892 0.97 oz Au/ton with Ore running at $20.00 Au/ton (Yreka Journal, 11/16/1892). In 1892 100 tons milled by Selby avg. $61.00/ton (3oz Au equivalent/ton) (Yreka Journal 12/7/1892). On July 24th 1900 the mill run produced $5,300. (254.4 oz Au; 10.7 oz/day; 10 tons/day at 1 oz Au/ton Mining and Scientific Press 7/14/1900). 2003 Core Drilling produced 25' of 1.024 oz Au/ton - 30' of 4.758 oz Au/ton and 39.5 oz Ag/ton. Historical Resource Estimate by R. L Hill, CA Reg.Geologist #3386, Jan 5, 2009. Primary Target - Queen Vein WQ #3 and WQ #4 levels at 8889 yrds³ = 20,000 short tons at 1 opt at $1200 worth $24,000,000. Level 2 - WQ #4 to Camp Level at 9778 yrds³ = 22,000 short tons at 1 opt at $1,200 worth $26,400,000. Camp Level to Long Tunnel Adit approx 300,000 oz...previous owner estimation. 42,000 tons blocked out - based on established mine plan. 43-101 independent Technical Report completed May 22nd, 2012. Between 2011 - 2013 approx $2.6 million spent on exploration and development mining (all figures verified by audit). Low cost producer - estimated cost per oz Au at $400. Metallurgy testing (Norris Labs of Montana) indicates 95% recoveries for gold and 87% for silver. 80% of recoverable ore from gravity.

Hello everyone, hope your day is going well! My name is Liz and today I will be showing you footage of a gold mine ghost town I visited on August 21st, 2018. This ghost town is near Virginia City, Montana and is very isolated in the hills. There are no signs to get to it and I was only informed of its existence by a local tour guide. These buildings were built and used around the early 1900s, but I am not clear on exact dates. If any of you recognize the equipment or structural patterns and can trace it to a certain time period, that would be very helpful! I am not well educated in gold mining and would love to learn more about the structures and objects I have filmed.

Bauer, Utah - Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. - 2006
Bauer used to be one of the largest smelter sites in the western US. Processing hundreds of tons of ore from all over Utah, Idaho and as far a way as Montana. In the mid 70s, the smelter shut down. The site was left lke that for almost 20 years, in perfect condition except for a few broken window. In 1996 some Paintball group decided this would be a great place to hold a paint ball battle. You can see the damage they brought, and in the following years it has continued to deteriorate. If you visit this site, please be respectful and leave everything as you find it. This includes relics, the Antiquities Act of 1906 makes it a federal crime to move or disturb any relics or artifacts that could be of historical significance. Gold Rush Expeditions strives to save these historic sites as a part of Utahs heritage. Unfortunately, Utahs Governor, John Huntsman, Jr. does not think these sites deserve saving. His office has been contacted numerous times and still the destruction continues. If you would like to join our protest please email Mr. Huntsman, or contact us via our website at www.goldrushexpeditions.com

A Piece of Idaho History
These photos were taken by Wm Allen Stonebraker during his life as a packer and guide 1900 - 1932 in Central Idaho's rugged and remote Salmon River area. Using primitive camera equipment in harsh conditions, he provided a rare record of mining history in Idaho's extreme backcountry. During Stonebraker's time, supplies were moved by mules, dogs, horses, pack bridges and ferrys. A well-known pioneering figure in Central Idaho, Al Stonebraker helped build the Three Blaze Trail from the north side of the Salmon River into the Thunder Mountain gold-mine area in about 1902. He then profited by packing in mail and supplies to the miners and residents from his home in Stites, ID, where the railroad ended. In his later years he operated a dude ranch from his homesite on Monumental Creek. He was on his way into the Wardenhoff mine in Sept. 1933 with a pack string when he died of a heart attack at a camp 12 miles from his ranch. He was 53. It took more than 12 hours to pack his body out by stock to his log-cabin home, where a landing strip allowed pilot Bob King transport it to Grangeville. Stonebraker's cabin still stands today in the very remote area of Idaho now federally designated as the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area. It is only accessible by horseback, foot or air. The Payette National Forest oversees the cabin's maintenance. I donated all of Al Stonebraker's more than 600 photos to the University of Idaho Library's Special Archives Northwest Collection. Copies may be ordered by contacting the UI Library.

Snyder Mine - Arizona - Gold Rush Expeditions - 2015
Website: https://www.goldrushexpeditions.com/ Mining Claims for Sale: https://www.goldrushexpeditions.com/store/mining-claims-for-sale/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GoldRushExpedinc National Bureau of Mines: http://www.nationalbureauofmines.org/ This week at Gold Rush Media, Corey and Jessica Shuman walk us through the Snyder Mine in Tuscon Arizona. From the old mill on it's unassuming surface to the fantastic double shaft there is plenty to be learned from this historic mine. The Snyder Mine traces its roots back to the 1860s, and is one of those rare sites where native gold and horn silver occur in the same ore body. This makes it a perfect opportunity for today's miner providing rich sustainable ore bodies. There is easy culverted access on the surface and newly installed gates at each adit entrance. With a notice of intent, the BLM is required to supply the owner with keys. There are thousands of feet of workings and beautiful timber-work inside making this an economic and historically appealing claim.
Silver City Idaho
A Short History of Silver City, Idaho Silver City, Idaho is one of the few old mining towns that did not burn down or become commercialized into a modern city. Visiting Silver City is like going back into history. The Idaho Hotel is as it was 100 years ago with a few modern amenities. Sinker Creek Outfitters will provide you with a historic ride back into history on horse back exploring the Owyhee Mountains, Silver City, Empire City, Ruby City and more. And at Pat's What Not Shop, books, souvenirs, local mineral samples are available. Rugged and picturesque, the 8,000 feet-high Owyhee Mountains surround Silver City, elevation 6,200'. The history-filled town contains about seventy-five structures that date from the 1860's to the early 1900's. During its "heydays", Silver City had about a dozen streets, seventy-five businesses, three hundred homes, a population of around 2,500, twelve ore-processing mills, and was the Owyhee County seat from 1866 to 1934. Some of the largest stage lines in the West operated in the area, and Silver City had the first telegraph and the first daily newspaper in the territory in 1874. Telephones were in use here at least by 1880, and the town was "electrified" in the 1890's. There were four separate burial areas nearby, with a few very interesting stones remaining; some quite large and elaborately carved. All are well worth the hike to see and photograph. More that two dozen camps provided shelter, supplies and amusement for the thousands of people who came to the mountains seeking their fortunes in one way or another. The ruins of some of these can still be found though nature is reclaiming most of them at an accelerated rate. Almost a dozen cemeteries and many more remote burial sites attest to the hard and sometimes dangerous and violent lives led by many. Hundreds of mines pock-mark and honeycomb the mountains; one had upwards of seventy miles of tunnels laboriously hand-dug through it. Between 1863 and 1865, more than two hundred and fifty mines were in operation and hundreds more were developed thereafter. Through the seventy-odd years of mining, more than twelve ore-processing mills gleaned rich rewards in tons of gold and silver. Large stacks of gold and silver ingots were photographed for posterity. At the very least, sixty million dollars worth of precious metals were taken from the area. At today's prices, that amount would be even more impressive. At the present time, there are no major mines operating in the area. The De Lamar Silver Mine began operation in 1977, shut down in 2000, and is one of the largest open pit gold and silver mines in the U.S. Today 3 businesses are open in Silver City. The historic Idaho Hotel, Sinker Creek Outfitter's and Pat's What Not Shop. Each have a link on the left side of this page to take you to their respective pages.

Garnet - A Montana Ghost Town in HD - near Missoula, Montana MT
High in the mountains of western Montana you will find a REAL ghost town, Garnet, one of Montana’s best preserved and least visited. Garnet was started in 1895 when gold was discovered. The town thrived with over 1,200 miners and their families. Garnet had four hotels, four stores, two barbershops, a butcher shop, a doctor’s office, laundry facilities and thirteen saloons. It even had stagecoach service! After a few years the gold ran out and so did the population. It dwindled down to 150 people by 1905. In 1912 a fire wiped out half of the commercial buildings and was never rebuilt. What you see today are efforts of stabilization, preservation and restoration from many volunteers who are dedicated to help preserve Montana’s rich mining history. Congratulations to each and every one of you! For more information, please see http://www.garnetghosttown.net/ This sequence was captured early September 2014 (ending scene captured June 2013) with a Canon Vixia HFS100 camera and edited with Adobe Premier Pro 6.0 Music used in this production: "Peace of Mind" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Direct Link: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1200099. © 2012 Kevin MacLeod “Water Lily” by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under CC Attribution 3.0.
