05:57
Recently, I moved from Texas to Colorado. It's been amazing meeting so many new people at my new school. Living in the mountains is awesome! For my first school field trip we went to Breckenridge, Colorado to explore the Country Boy Mine! We traveled 1000 feet below ground, learned all about the lives and history of miners, and even panned for gold! There are so many things to do as a kid living in Summit County! I can't wait to share all my adventures with you. Thanks for watching! Please subscribe :)

Enter our monthly contest to win cool prizes to help you find more treasure. February's prize is a Garrett Pin Pointer! Enter and get details at: http://highplainsprospectors.com/blog/?p=771 This is a work/quick prospecting trip. We own a dog boarding facility in Olathe, KS that occasionally takes in needy animals. In this situation a long time client of ours had some unfortunate family issues which meant she had to forego her dogs. We found the first one a home but Juneau can be a bit of a handful and it took quite some time to find a perfect fit for her. In this circumstance we decided to place her with a breed specific rescue organization that will prepare them to be placed in a home specifically for sled dogs. This was a perfect fit for her. During the trip Scrap Iron and Jason get to go out and do a quick bit of prospecting for gold with their suction dredge, sluice, box and gold pan. The creek was frozen over, but they made due with the conditions they had and got out into the creek a bit to poke around and look for some gold. Although they only found a couple very fine pieces, at least they got out to do it. Don't forget to visit our website www.highplainsprospectors.com for more information, our blog, and the latest in gold prospecting and metal detecting equipment.

Winter Dinner Theater Sleigh Rides in Breckenridge Colorado
 
00:31
Step into a time machine masquerading as a bright red Santa Sleigh and be prepared to experience a magical horse drawn sleigh ride back to an 1860’s mining camp where hearty mountain food is served up with a healthy dose of family dinner theater! This adventure is fun for the whole family. Once snugly tucked under blankets, two majestic horses pull the red Santa Sleigh through a magical winter wonderland near Breckenridge, Colorado where magnificent tall Pine trees fade in and out of the night and snow glistens like diamonds in the warm light of the lantern. The sleigh driver, often accompanied by a friendly canine companion, shares stories that delight and entertain. Thirty minutes later the sleigh pulls up to an 1860’s mining camp dining hall filled with lamp light, mouth-watering aromas and heat blasting out of two wood burning stoves. Everywhere you look there are historic artifacts and one of the stoves is practically groaning under the weight of all the perfectly hand-made apples pies, hearty beans, golden corn on the cob, heavenly hot chocolate and more. But before hungry stomachs can get too excited, the dinner theater show begins! Who will entertain—will it be the Mountain Man telling tall tales of trapping, hunting and mountain women? Or will it be the Unsinkable Molly Brown bringing her wholly unique story to life? Or maybe it will be the delightful Dance Hall Girl playfully weaving stories of miners? Learn about Breckenridge as it really was and life in a saloon. Or maybe your dinner theater entertainment will be the Signing Cowboy, keeping you properly entertained with a song and cowboy poetry. No matter who, the laughs are many and kids adore the characters as much if not more than the adults! The colorful character and your dinner theater show, whoever it may be, will lead his guests through the chow line where plates are generously heaped with delicious, simple and hearty food—just like what the miners of yesteryear would eat, only better! Silence falls as mouths become preoccupied with eating and then comfortable conversation and easy laughter rings loud as stomachs are satisfied. The night ends with a short walk back to present day.

Breckenridge is ageless
 
02:03
Breckenridge is true Rocky Mountain high country. And it has a strange effect: It makes you feel ageless. Maybe it’s the way you can access wild places from here, like fly-fishing on the Blue River, paddling down Brown’s Canyon, or exploring hundreds of miles of singletrack with you mountain bike. Or maybe it’s the sensation of stepping back in time when you come across mining relics on a hike. Maybe it’s the vibrancy of town, full of history and character and an incredibly laid-back charm that makes it the perfect place to unwind and catch up with friends. However you do it, this place always tends to serve up an adventure. And as with any adventure, it makes you feel alive. * This video is proudly produced in partnership with the Breckenridge Tourism Office: http://www.gobreck.com/ @GoBreck #BreckLife DOWNLOAD OUR APP APPLE: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/travelstoke/id983733875?mt=8 ANDROID: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.matadornetwork.travelstoke&hl=en MORE FROM MATADOR NETWORK WEB: http://matadornetwork.com/ INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/matadornetwork/ YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/user/MATADORnetwork FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/matadornetwork ABOUT MATADOR NETWORK MatadorNetwork.com and its social channels are the #1 digital destination for affluent millennial travelers and adventurers.

Catch Carri Interviews the Mine Foreman at Old Country Boy Mine
 
03:21
"Is anyone afraid of the dark?" Our group stood still. "Anyone afraid to admit it?" I thought about piping up. Too late. Mine foreman, Eric Kellegrew, switched the overhead lights off as we stood 1,1000 feet inside the Old Country Boy Mine in Breckenridge, Colorado. Lightly placing his hand over a flashlight, Eric demonstrated just how dim work conditions were inside the mine in the 1800's. Seeing only by flickering candlelight, miners endured extremely challenging work conditions. But that marks only the beginning of the list. Rats in the hundreds squirmed at the boots of miners. "They have a sixth sense," Eric told us. If the rats ran out of the mine, miners followed." Rats were used for their ability to detect air quality problems in the mine. Several miners also eventually lost their hearing. After Eric turned on the hydraulic drill there was no questioning the intensity of the noise that carried deep inside the mountain during the ten hour work days. When miners weren't using the drill, they used other techniques like single jacking and double jacking while standing in up to a foot of muddy water. Taking a 45-minute tour of the Old Country Boy Mine allows you to experience the drastic conditions miners faced day in and out for a whopping 80 cents a day. The mine was established in 1887 but was shut down after loosing government funding when WWII ended. In 1994, two brothers restored the mine and chipped deeper into the mountain, making it an even more authentic way to experience Colorado's mineral rich past. "Now we just mine for tourists," Eric jokes. While at the mine you can also pan for gold, learn what a blast monkey was, slide down the 55 foot ore shoot and explore the authentic mining equipment used in the mines hay day.

Cripple Creek (3), Colorado, United States.
 
02:31
Cripple Creek, Colorado 2005, gold mining camp For many years Cripple Creek's high valley, at an elevation of 9,494 feet (2,894 m), was considered no more important than a cattle pasture. Many prospectors avoided the area after the Mount Pisgah hoax, a mini gold rush caused by salting (adding gold to worthless rock). On the 20th of October, 1890, Robert Miller "Bob" Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush began. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history. In three years, the population increased from five hundred to ten thousand by 1893. Although $500 million worth of gold ore was dug from Cripple Creek, Womack died penniless on 10 August 1909. In 1896 Cripple Creek suffered two disastrous fires. The first occurred on April 25 destroying half of the city including much of the business district. Four days later another fire destroyed much of the remaining half. The city was rebuilt in a period of a few months, most historic buildings today date back to 1896. By 1900, Cripple Creek and its sister city, Victor, were substantial mining communities. During the 1890s, many of the miners in the Cripple Creek area joined a miners' union, the Western Federation of Miners (WFM). A significant strike took place in 1894, marking one of the few times in history that a sitting governor called out the national guard to protect miners from anti-union violence by forces under the control of the mine owners. By 1903, the allegiance of the state government had shifted and Governor James Peabody sent the Colorado National Guard into Cripple Creek with the goal of destroying union power in the gold camps.[citation needed] The WFM strike of 1903 and the governor's response precipitated the Colorado Labor Wars, a struggle that took many lives. Through 2005, the Cripple Creek district produced about 23.5 million troy ounces (979 1/6 troy tons; 731 metric tons) of gold. The underground mines are mostly idle, except for a few small operations. There are significant underground deposits remaining which may become feasible to mine in the future. Large scale open pit mining and cyanide heap leach extraction of near-surface ore material, left behind by the old time miners as low grade, has taken place since 1994 east of Cripple Creek, near its sister city of Victor, Colorado. The current mining operation is conducted by Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V). The mine operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mine operations, maintenance, and processing departments work a rotating day/night schedule in 12-hour shifts. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows. Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs https://youtu.be/D9Zf37YutQ4 Cripple Creek Colorado 2005

Berdan-grinder
 
00:19
Berdan This is a stamper battery consisting of five stampers driven by a Pelton wheel water turbine which is also driving a Berdan which grinds the quartz particles from the stamper into a fine power. Mercury in the bottom of the Berdan combines as an amalgam with the gold powder. The early days of the New Zealand Gold Rush occurred in 1861 with alluvial or placer gold fields of Otago in the South Island and quartz hard rock mining in the North Island of New Zealand in 1867. Gold Rush Online (www.KaeLewis.com) includes descriptions of the gold rush and a database which allows you to search over 50,000 entries of registered gold mining claims called miners rights and other records. We strongly recommend visiting Gold Fields Mining Centre in Otago, New Zealand where you can see the old gold mining methods in action using original equipment. Goldmine-Experience is another excellent display including a stamper battery, separation table, a mine and working gold mining and separation equipment at Thames in the North Island (www.goldmine-experience.co.nz).

Catch Carri Interviews the Mine Foreman at Old Country Boy Mine
 
03:21
Visit: Catch.carri.com "Is anyone afraid of the dark?" Our group stood still. "Anyone afraid to admit it?" I thought about piping up. Too late. Mine foreman, Eric Kellegrew, switched the overhead lights off as we stood 1,1000 feet inside the Old Country Boy Mine in Breckenridge, Colorado. Lightly placing his hand over a flashlight, Eric demonstrated just how dim work conditions were inside the mine in the 1800's. Seeing only by flickering candlelight, miners endured extremely challenging work conditions. But that marks only the beginning of the list. Rats in the hundreds squirmed at the boots of miners. "They have a sixth sense," Eric told us. If the rats ran out of the mine, miners followed." Rats were used for their ability to detect air quality problems in the mine. Several miners also eventually lost their hearing. After Eric turned on the hydraulic drill there was no questioning the intensity of the noise that carried deep inside the mountain during the ten hour work days. When miners weren't using the drill, they used other techniques like single jacking and double jacking while standing in up to a foot of muddy water. Taking a 45-minute tour of the Old Country Boy Mine allows you to experience the drastic conditions miners faced day in and out for a whopping 80 cents a day. The mine was established in 1887 but was shut down after loosing government funding when WWII ended. In 1994, two brothers restored the mine and chipped deeper into the mountain, making it an even more authentic way to experience Colorado's mineral rich past. "Now we just mine for tourists," Eric jokes. While at the mine you can also pan for gold, learn what a blast monkey was, slide down the 55 foot ore shoot and explore the authentic mining equipment used in the mines hay day.
