Free Gold Maps. No, really.

I have taken the MRDS database and extracted all USA records that mention gold. I then created 577 Google Maps with those data, and uploaded them to my new web site. http://freegoldmaps.com This will upset the few people who sell this information as printed maps, and for that I am sorry but the data are free from the USA government anyhow, and thus in the public domain.

State Police Interrupt a Gold Mining Operation in Oregon!
 
15:39
Our mining claim neighbors called the Cops! People living on the other side of the river where our mining claim is and not liking our mining, called the cops. It appears our neighbors just did not want their liberal utopia disturbed so they call the cops to harass us. The police were very cool as I knew one of them from checking our permits on another river couple months earlier and an Oregon DEQ meeting he showed up at. The rude lady yells to at from other side of river "you need a permit to do that"...we had them of course. She also told cops we were disrespecful and rude to her...which was totally false. She made up her own narrative about what was happening to justify her being annoyed. Liberal tactic # 3, change the narrative or just plain lie! This is the short version of the video, filmed on the Applegate River in Oregon while we were LEGALLY GOLD MINING! In the video, it is a continuous video, shot on my GoPro camera that I was wearing on my head. The video shows me mining and moving around with no editing to show what actually goes on while mining. Then my buddy is helping me move rocks while I'm using a sub-surface dredge...then the cops show up , and I tell him is where the action starts. UPDATE Jan 1st, 2015: In response to some of the comments saying we are uneducated, rednecks and other stuff...the guys in the video are as follows. One is a millionaire CPA, another a self employed business owner, two others are also self employed and owns a body shop and the other an internet marketer and freelance videographer, and lastly one is the son of the CPA guy and currently in college. Oregon Mining Law: Next time this happens, I will ask the State Police to cite the offending people who disrupt our mining operation based on this Oregon Mining Law: "ORS 517.133 Interfering with a mining operation. (1) As used in this section, "lawful mining operation" means any small scale mining operation that is in full compliance with state and federal laws. (2) A person commits the crime of interfering with a mining operation if the person intentionally: (a) Interferes with a lawful mining operation; or (b) Stops, or causes to be stopped, a lawful mining operation. (3) Interfering with a mining operation is a Class C misdemeanor. [1999 c.354 §6]" Here is the GoPro camera I was using: http://amzn.to/19yYus6

Interesting Underground Gold Mine Stuffed With Quartz
 
27:30
This gold mine is one of those abandoned mines that didn’t look like much at first, but ended up being really interesting… Aside from the complexity of the underground workings we explored, we just kept finding stuff. Well, more accurately, I should say that my exploring buddy kept finding stuff. While I was inside the first adit looking around, Mr. McBride, discovered the lower adit and the buildings above the mine workings. Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about the history of this mine. As with many things, California is behind other states in digitizing the records in their archives. By contrast, Nevada is fantastic in this respect. The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology and the University of Nevada in Reno have done a really impressive job of digitizing and organizing their records online. So, for example, if you have the name of a mine, you can look through their database and find extensive records and maps for the mine you’re curious about. Obviously, not every historic mine is included in their database, but most are. Even without knowing the history though, it is apparent that this mine is an older mine that was worked off and on for quite a while. It also doesn’t seem to be a big stretch to assume that a respectable amount of gold was extracted. I’m basing that on the size of the workings and how the miners burrowed off in all directions from that quartz core where the pit was. They even went down and ran another adit in... Actually, as I was typing that, I realized that it may have been the other way around. If you’ll recall, the track in the lower adit was the “budget rail” where the miners nailed the metal strips onto boards to run the ore carts over. Since the track in the first adit I entered was solid metal rail, it would suggest the possibility that the miners may have done well enough in the lower adit to afford to splash out on expensive rail when driving a second adit above. In other words, the lower adit may have been the first adit. The mine buildings just above the underground workings were interesting to us given their age. The main building looked just large enough to accommodate a crew of approximately the size of the number of names on the board where the miners would badge in and badge out. It’s possible a mining crew could have worked this operation in the winter, but given its remote location, fairly poor dirt roads and heavy snowfall in the winter, it seems more likely this was a summer mining operation. Was that a grave at the end? What do you guys think that was? ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my 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 colorful 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

Alaska gold mining
 
01:04
Alaska gold mining, Invest in an Idaho gold property. A great asset to add to your portfolio and Great Elk Hunting!! FINANCING ZERO DOWN $200/MONTH!! Email me for more info and pictures. Thanks, Travis Hollon. (208)-628-3691 Here is some information on what a mining claim is and what you can do with one. This is a 20 acre unpatented mining claim, which means it's mineral rights only. Mineral rights are considered real property. The deed is held by the Federal Gov. These claims are located in National Forest. You own the minerals and they come with a federal serial number. You have more rights to the surface than the general public. Mining claim owners who own mineral rights have many privileges that most people are not aware of. With an approved plan of operations you can build temporary structures such as living quarters or storage sheds, out houses, etc. You can live on your claim for extended periods of time, even year around, if you are planning on testing or working your claim. You can build new roads and trails, cut timber, build a fence around your gold mine, etc. An unpatented mining claim is perpetual. It can be bought, sold, traded, or willed and can be maintained forever in one of two ways. One, is pay an assessment fee of $155 every year. Two, is filing a waver and an affidavit that states that you did $155 worth of assessment work on your claim for the year. It costs $10 to file these forms. In completion of one of these options, this claim will remain yours, with a federal serial number. A mining claim is a great asset to ad to your portfolio. Mining claims in the desired Florence Basin will be worth more in the future as gold prices rise, making your investment worth more!! This claim is 20 acres of prime mineral rights in a proven gold discovery. Call or email for more info. Thanks for your time! Travis Hollon (208)-628 3691

A huge outcrop with multiple exposures containing free mill gold in quartz veins and placer gold which has made it's way into the cracks and crevices of the bedrock and quartz veins. Vein appears to be quartz as well as other brecciated materials. A old creek appears to have run on top of the outcrop and gold and minerals may have leached through bedrock crevices into the vein. Multiple other areas on the outcrop have sulfides and gold and this may be from a different source.

Exploring A Sketchy Underground Placer Mine In The Backcountry
 
13:53
The last video prompted a number of comments regarding lode mines versus placer mines. I realized I hadn’t posted any videos on underground placer gold mines in a while and since I have a number of new subscribers, I figured it was time for a refresher. Last week’s Alaska gold mine was a classic lode mine where the gold is embedded in hard rock and has to be crushed to be extracted. This week’s video is of underground placer mines, which are really buried ancient river channels. The gold is not contained within the rock, but is trapped in the river gravel and sand between the rocks. The miners at the first mine we visited had to punch in through the rock that you saw in order to reach the placer deposits hidden deeper under the mountain. However, at the second mine, the miners were immediately in the placer. That is very unusual for that part of California as almost all of the ancient river channels were buried by volcanic activity and they often have hundreds of feet of overburden above them. It’s impossible to know how the area around the second mine might have looked two hundred years ago since hydraulic mining washed away all of the earth covering the placer deposits at this sprawling site. However, I suspect that the only reason the miners at our second mine were immediately into the placer is because the hydraulic mine had already stripped away all of the overburden. Assuming this is the case, that would remain consistent with the other underground placer mines in the “Mother Lode” region of California. In sharp contrast to the first mine, I saw absolutely nothing at the second mine to suggest that it was a profitable venture. I expect it was mostly exploratory in nature and that the miners were hoping to locate the point where the ancient river channel hit the bedrock underneath. This zone is where the majority of the gold in these deposits collects. I didn’t see any sign that the miners located it... Further evidence for this is that there was no stoping or breasting underground where the miners had removed material. If they had found something worthwhile, they would have extracted it. Additionally, the adit and drifts meandered around as if they were exploring rather than having a clear destination. Hydraulic mining in California was banned in 1884. Given the amount of work done at the hydraulic mine around where the underground mine was located, it was apparently a profitable operation. So, the miners might have been attempting to keep a good thing going by switching to underground mining. Or it may have been a venture from decades later when the area enjoyed a brief renaissance during the 1930s when the United States was wallowing in the Great Depression and the government increased the price of gold (devaluing the U.S. dollar). Many desperate people took to the hills during that time in search of gold that was suddenly more valuable and these placer deposits would not have escaped their attention. The first mine we visited was a phenomenally successful underground placer mine. The mine was in operation for many years and was large enough to support at least two boarding houses along with everything else required by a large mining operation. As I mentioned in the video, there were miles of underground workings at this mine (we have come across dangerous air shafts deep in the forest that connect to this mine and the area they span is incredible). A map I have seen of this mine looks like a map of Manhattan with a huge grid running very methodically and systematically deeper into the mountain. There was nothing accidental or sloppy about this mine. The miners were very precise in clearing out as much of the gold-filled ancient river channel as possible. The mine had tracks running straight down the steep canyon where the mine is located to a large creek below the mine. Continuous loads of placer ore would be lowered down to the creek where the large volume of water would be used to wash the placer deposits and separate out the gold. ***** You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my 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.

1/19/2011 - Heated meeting on Chuitna Mine proposal http://www.ktuu.com/news/ktuu-heated-meeting-on-chuitna-mine-01192011,0,5256738.story (Excerpt) The Department of Natural Resources will makes its decision in 60 days. Online comments are also being taken. DNR is considering adding another public comment period because of the bad weather. 1/12/2011 - http://homernews.com/stories/011211/letters_iaot.shtml (Excerpt) Common sense and considerable scientific data should prompt decision-makers to say, what is there to discuss? Who would want to ruin a very productive spawning process that feeds the critical salmon industry in the northern Cook Inlet? It seems that both state and local decision-makers do. Hope remains that the result of the Jan. 19th hearing will be that the decision-makers will review the overwhelming data showing the Chuitna basin unsuitable for coal mining and reject Pac Rim sending them back to Texas. Thus far in the process there has been little to be optimistic about. Is there anyone out there? Ward Grant Beluga === Biggest fish blunder - DNR not posting public comment notices for the Chuitna coal mine project --- 12/26/2010 - http://www.suntimes.com/news/nation/3033298-418/coal-mine-alaska-usibelli-chuitna.html (Excerpt) Two new coal strip-mine proposals are under serious study in Southcentral Alaska. Also, the state's single coal producer, Healy-based Usibelli Coal Mine Inc., is weighing expansion. The bigger of the proposed new mines, called the Chuitna project, would ratchet up the state's total coal exports from about 1 million tons per year to 12 million tons. Exporting coal from the mine, about 45 miles southwest of Anchorage, would require building a massive dock for oceangoing cargo ships on the west side of Cook Inlet. 12/15/2010 - http://homertribune.com/2010/12/coal-vs-fish-on-cook-inlet/ Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell's stock answer to anyone raising environmental questions about any mineral development project is to praise the fairness of the state's permitting process. "Let the process work," is Parnell's mantra. In their handling of the proposed Chuitna coal mine the state Department of Natural Resources, and its commissioner Tom Irwin, are making a mockery of that process and threatening Cook Inlet salmon stocks, not to mention the livelihoods of those who catch them. Proposed by PacRim Coal LP, the Anchorage subsidiary of Delaware-based PacRim LP, the project is located about 45 miles west of Anchorage on the west shore of the Inlet. It would, literally, sit atop decades-old commercial setnet sites but potential conflicts between harvesters and miners probably won't occur because the mine would dig 300 feet deep, for 11 miles, into Chuitna River tributaries to get to the coal seam. After the projected 25-year life of the mine the stream would be rebuilt, according to the developer's plans and presumably the children of today's setnetters could get back to work. That level of stream destruction by a mine project is unprecedented in Alaska state history and no such reclamation project has ever been attempted anywhere, let alone succeeded. According to DNR it could be fully permitted within seven months. If that timeframe strikes you as surprising, review the record of DNR's website posting, public documents and statements by Irwin and other senior permit managers. Try real hard to come away believing DNR's permit review will be anything other than as much of a rubber stamp as the department can get away with. I couldn't.

Exporting coal from the mine, about 45 miles southwest of Anchorage, would require building a massive dock for ocean-going cargo ships on the west side of Cook Inlet. Deep-seated opposition in Chickaloon, for example, persuaded a Canadian company to abandon its coal exploration leases on 230,000 acres several years ago. The debate is still raging over the two pending coal projects, Chuitna and Wishbone Hill, a small mine that could reopen north of Palmer. --- http://thedirtylie.com/blog/?p=1417 Three new scientific reports conclude that critical salmon fisheries along the Chuit River will suffer severe long-term damage and never fully recover from the impacts of PacRim Coal LP's proposed Chuitna coal strip-mine.

Klondike Alaska: A Rail History
 
01:29:30
For most people, railroads in Alaska and the Yukon are synonymous with the Alaska Railroad and the White Pass and Yukon Railroad whose passenger cars provide tourists with vistas of awe-inspiring terrain. That same terrain provided enormous challenges for early settlers of both territories. Railroads were an integral part of overcoming those challenges. Dozens of other railroads also laid track in Alaska, the Yukon, and northwest British Columbia and provided the means to transport supplies to settlements and to transport the region’s raw materials to outside markets. Klondike Alaska charts the history of many of those railroads. ©KUAC 2005 DVD's of this program are available for purchase at www.kuac.org.

Hydraulic Gold Mining in the Old West
 
04:38
Gold in the creeks and rivers was easily found by panning and sluicing, but many of the richest mining areas were in old ancient river channels high above the existing water line. To mine these deposits effectively a different method was required... Hydraulic mining used high pressured water to literally wash away the hillside and release gold. The large hydraulic monitors would break apart the clays and gravel which would be run through a sluice box. Considerable gold was found using this method, and was a major boon to the economy of many of the mining camps throughout the West.

Bristol Bay in Alaska Threatened by Trump White House
 
25:26
The headwaters of the great salmon runs of southwestern Alaska are under threat from the foreign owned Pebble Mine which will destroy huge pristine areas with a massive gold mining operation. In return for $300 billion in profits the mine's stakeholders will destroy the salmon fisheries and the jobs and culture of thousands of indigenous people as well as the local commercial fishing industry. The project is opposed by the people of Alaska but supported by the Alaska state government. The EPA hd been suing the mine to block the permit process, but Trump's EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, a well known pro-industry hack who wants to destroy the EPA, has settled the case allowing the permit process to begin. Hear the story on Trump Watch with Paul DeRienzo. Since joining NRDC, Taryn Kiekow Heimer has played significant roles in two of the organization’s major campaigns: stopping the development of the environmentally disastrous Pebble Mine project proposed in Alaska’s Bristol Bay and putting an end to commercial whaling. She also leads our work to protect beluga whales in Cook Inlet, Alaska. More info www.savebristolbay.org

The "BIMA" - Nome Alaska Biggest Dredge Ever
 
01:04
Bucket-Ladder dredges are very complex systems which require a large, highly skilled crew to operate. They tend to be custom built for specific conditions. An initial cost will range from several million to 10s of millions depending on the production and depth of operation. Accuracy is a function of vessel management usually achieved with spuds or anchors which is an art in its self. Their ability to reach near shore shallow areas is limited by their draft and the sea state. Bucket ladders can easily achieve 10km3/day and operate to depths in excess of 50m. Bottom coverage is nearly 100%, but the depth of cut is influenced by surface conditions, especially in rough seas. Under excavation will result in lost gold and a higher spillage rate. Historical BIMA Benchmark The BIMA, a 565 foot long bucket-ladder dredge operated by West Gold from 1987 to 1990 is the largest dredge to ever be mobilized in Nome. The initial purchase price was about $4,000,000 while an additional $15,000,000 was invested in the retrofit for Nome mobilization. During the trials and 4 years of operation, the BIMA experienced hull damage from ice, was hindered by rough seas and was shut down due to a broken drive shaft[III]. The BIMA did not proved to be economically viable, but it did set the high bar for material removal and gold recovery. These numbers will be used to establish a baseline for competing technologies to reference. The market price for gold at the time was around $400/oz., the current $1,300/oz. price makes a comparable operation much more profitable. Historic figures show that over its four-year period, the BIMA averaged 1,114,400m3/year of excavated material. For an average of 100 operational days per year, this equates to 11,114m3/day or 464m3/hr. This data is quantified in Table 1 below. Table 1: BIMA Data BIMA Benchmark – Historic 4-Year Period Total Dredged Volume 4,457,602 m3 Duration 4 years Average Season 100 days Daily Average 11,144 m3/day Hour Average 464 m3/hr. By processing this material, they were able to average 295 oz. per day. Here, we assume this ‘free gold’ had a fineness of .89 fine. In today’s market, this production would average over $340,000 per day in gross revenue before operating expenses and taxes. [i] Vlasblom W.J. (2004, Feb).

10 MOST TOXIC Places On Earth
 
11:47
From the DIRTIEST Cities, to nuclear wastelands ; these are the 10 MOST TOXIC Places On Earth. HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 10.La Oroya | Peru 9.Dhaka | Bangladesh 8. Norilsk | Russia The city has been branded as the most polluted city in Russia, where the snow is black, air tastes like sulfur and rivers run red. Life expectancy of employees in the smelter is 10 years below the Russian average. By some estimates, 1% of the world`s sulfur dioxide emission comes from the Norilsk nickel mines. Nearly 500 tons of copper and nickel as well as two million tons of sulfur dioxide are released into the air, annually. In 2016 the nearby Daldykan River turned red and the evidence pointed to privately owned wastewater pipes. The company accepted the responsibility while claiming that the coloring was of no danger to humans or wildlife. The smelting plant was in the process of being modernized and steps are being taken in order to reduce pollution. 7.Nevada Proving Grounds | Nevada Nevada Proving Grounds, now known as the Nevada Test Site or Nevada National Security Site is a U. S. Department of Energy reservation in Nye County, Nevada, 65 miles northwest from Las Vegas. The tests stopped in 1994 but the area is still extremely radioactive. Even though the radioactivity in the water is gradually declining, isotopes like plutonium and uranium could pose risks to workers or future settlers on the NNSS for tens of thousands of years. 6.Shanghai | China In December of 2013, Shanghai suffered a great spike in air pollution when the so called “2013 Eastern China Smog” occurred. The pollution levels were between 23 and 31 times the international standard. Nearly one-third of all government vehicles were pulled off the streets, construction work was halted, student`s outdoor activities were suspended, flights were cancelled or diverted. And even though air pollution in Shanghai is substantial by the world standard, it is still lower than other cities in China. Among the top 500 most polluted cities in the world, Chinese cities hold 179 spots. Thankfully, China is taking extremely serious measures to reduce pollution, closing coal factories, smelters and mills while switching over to more eco-friendly energy sources. 5.Northwest Arctic | Alaska Out of all the states in the union, Alaska produces the most toxins, outranking every other state by nearly 3 times. A closer look reveals that 91% of all of Alaska`s emissions come from one county, Northwest Arctic, most of it originating from one city – Kotzebue, population 7,500. So how is it possible that a tiny city, in the middle of nowhere Alaska is responsible for so much pollution? Well, 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, it releases 756 million pounds of toxins into the environment. 4.Asse II mine | Germany The Asse II mine opened between 1906, initially extracting potash (until 1925) and producing rock salt (1916-1964). But during the period between 1964 and 1995 the mine was used as a storage of radioactive waste. 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. There`s fears that the mine could fill with water and authorities are rushing to remove the waste with remotely operated vehicles since it is unsafe for workers to go in there. 3. | New Mexico The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant’s history is relatively short, 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. 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 between 1946 and 1962. The US conducted 105 atmospheric and underwater nuclear tests in the Pacific. 1.Pripyat | Ukraine 50000 People used to live here... Now it's a ghost town. Radiation levels were so high that Nuclear Power stations in Sweden, Finland and Norway detected the anomaly. Twenty years later, the area is still uninhabitable. Except for the 197 people living in 11 villages scattered in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The average age is 63.
