Abandoned. What makes people leave a town and not even bring their belongings with them? Leave a town to rot. This, everyone, is the story of a Ghost town. Not just any ghost town, but the biggest, most sprawling, massive ghost town in California. The one with the bad reputation. The one that once, reportedly, inspired a little girl to write in her diary, "Goodbye God, we're going to Bodie" Come with me, Justin Scarred, on a trip through time and a lot of miles of dirt road as we explore California's biggest ghost town, Bodie!

The stages of living between these events: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, parenthood and senior are themselves natural and in accord with the needs of the species and most individuals. Many find their satisfaction in living this course and to these individuals I have little or nothing to say. Others though long for something more; something innate, genetic and seemingly calling. Adventure and change can give a degree of satisfaction and relief yet even these may seem too tame. To those who feel drawn to something beyond the entertainment and stimulation of senses I offer a walk along The Path of Wildness. Don't bother penciling the event in your schedule, preparing a pack with goodies and supplies or even inviting a friend along, for this experience is along the course of your first inclination and you must surely always go alone.

Entire ghost town in California
 
12:58
An empty town in California complete with a school, church, firehouse, stores, even a morgue! Traveling through California I stopped off at the incredible Redwoods! So amazing to see these giants in person. From there I went on to explore Bodie, an incredibly preserved town in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Bodie was a thriving mining town way back in the 1800's but as time went on it became less and less populated until the 1940's when it was all but abandoned. It was eventually taken over by the state, protected and preserved. Such a cool experience to walk around this place. What a time warp!

Columbia State Historic Park - Columbia, California - Historic Gold Mining Town
 
05:54
Yesterday, the gold mining town of Columbia, California celebrated their 162nd birthday and Modesto News .org was on hand to capture the day on film. Being so isolated in the foothills of California, the town of Columbia remained untouched by the turn of the century innovations that changed the world 100 years ago. During the late 1930's and early 1940's the residents of Columbia, California looked around and realized they had something quite special in their midst, and approached the State Of California in an effort to have their town designated as an official State Park. The state agreed that the town should be preserved and in 1945 Columbia, California joined the State Park System. The Columbia State Historic Park offers educational entertainment for the entire family year round. The town is still an active town with hundreds of residents who call the State Park their home, and run the many shops that line the main street. The Columbia State Historic Park is only an hour drive from Modesto, California and is a must for every child in Modesto to experience.

Randsburg - California Ghost Towns
 
03:47
California Travel Tips host Veronica Hill (http://www.CaliforniaTravelExpert.com) heads into the Mojave Desert to check out Randsburg Ghost Town. Located in Kern County along scenic Highway 395, Randsburg is one of California's few "living" ghost towns, home to approximately 80 residents. The Rand Mining District was established in 1895, when gold was discovered in the Rand mountains. It's estimated that Randsburg produced more than $60 million in gold during its boom. There also was plenty of tungsten ore and silver. One of the most productive gold mines was the Yellow Aster, which yielded $25 million between 1895 and 1933. Be sure to check out the Randsburg Jail, located at the entrance to town, then head inside the Rand Desert Museum, where you'll find mining exhibits, memorabilia and artifacts from the Rand Mining District. Be sure to say hi to curator J. Bart Parker, and tell him we said hello! Most of Randsburg's surviving Old West buildings are located along Butte Avenue. The Santa Barbara Catholic Church dates back to 1904, but the first church was built here in 1897. The Randsburg Post Office dates back to 1896. On holidays, local thespians don period costumes for plays and melodramas at the Randsburg Opera House. The Randsburg General Store is the hub of action in Randsburg, especially during the fall when the weather cools off and ATV riders arrive. You have to order the Black Bart. It's a signature item here! Built in 1896 as the Jones Drug Store, this popular hangout is a huge draw for tourists who fuel up on burgers and sandwiches, washed down with a phosphate soda. The building still has its original tin ceilings, light fixtures and soda fountain dating back to 1904. For a bit of wild west nostalgia, head into the White House Saloon, which hosted miners, cowboys, Indians and clampers during the boom years; or check out The Joint, a local watering hole that's been here since the 1950s. If you want to stay the night, Goat's Sky Ranch is a B&B with miner's cabin rentals, or you can check into the Randsburg Inn , which sits on the former site of the Orpheum Theater, My Place Dance Hall and Commercial Hotel. One thing to consider — Randsburg literally becomes a ghost town during the week. The best time to visit is on the weekend, when most businesses are operating. Thanks for joining us in Randsburg.

California's picturesque foothills fed by the clear crystal snow runoff from the Sierra, home to the many diverse Native American cultures was forever changed when James Marshall discovered Gold in California at Sutter's Mill in 1848 and set off the largest gold rush in history. Reminders of this abundantly rich history can be found everywhere along Hwy 49 as it winds and meanders through the Mother Lode mining towns of days gone by, through flowering white dogwoods, olive colored oaks and towering cedar, the remnants of history; old stone cabins and buildings, mining equipment, and stamp mills that were used to crush gold-bearing quartz. This historic area needs to be preserved and shared to save the heritage and rugged beauty of Hwy 49 and Gold Country, one of California's most precious resources, for everyone, everywhere. Today along this incredible American byway is a region of quaint bed and breakfasts, shops lining historic main streets, award winning wineries, fine restaurants, antique and gift shops, art galleries, golf courses, unlimited recreation and the chance to travel back in time...

California Gold Mine "For Sale" Cherry Hill Mine
 
04:57
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. Eight known adits on 7 unpatented lode claims situated on 94.6 Acres. Multiple assays completed with underground surveys. Defining a resource is a big expense for exploration companies, costing millions of dollars to complete. In purchasing a previously producing mine, You will have forgone the costly resource definition process because, “this was all done, we know what's here, so just go mine it!” Price $1,295,000 - Will consider all reasonable offers For the opportunity to discuss the mines in further detail, please contact: Philip Physioc [email protected] or (702) 822-0237
Gold Mine Tour in Auburn California #2

Join me in a quick tour of a very little known, but easy to get to gold mine, right next to the Shirland Canal in the Auburn State Recreation Area. I came to explore one mine, which was sealed, but found another nearby! Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that exploring an old mine is safe, and I choose to enter at my own risk. I do not recommend that you go into any mines, tunnels, or caves that you may find, including the one in this video. I have made this video so that you can see what the mine looks like on the inside. If you choose to go in that is entirely your decision.

Secret Miner’s Cabin & Mines In The Sierra Nevada - Part 1
 
16:18
Probably less than a dozen people know about the historic miner’s cabin hidden away on this mining claim - and even fewer still know about the abundance of gold mines found here… It remains a secret because the people that do know where this is remain tight-lipped about it and this cabin and mines are located in an absolute black hole on topographic and other maps. There is simply nothing marked anywhere near here. With the contractors for the Forest Service, BLM, Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) programs, et al working overtime (with taxpayer money) to get all of these historic mines erased, it is very nice to be introduced to some gold mines that are not (currently) in danger of being permanently closed. It is a shame that we have to wallow in such secrecy simply to protect a historically significant site from the very entities that should be preserving it, but such is the upside down world we live in. The two adits featured in this video appear to be quite old. I was able to find a couple of references to the mines consolidated on this claim in mining journals dating back to the turn of the last century and they were described as already having been worked for a while at that time. So, initial work here probably dates back to around the time of California’s “Gold Rush” era. The earliest gold miners in California were placer miners. However, when the easy pickings from the surface were worked out, they became lode miners and headed underground to start chasing the veins where the gold in the creeks originated from (some underground miners also chased the rich placer left behind by ancient river channels that were buried millions of years ago). The little hole by the creek under the huge boulder would have been referred to as a “coyote hole” by the miners of the time. These were in abundance along the creeks and rivers of California in the early days as the miners pursued gold flakes and nuggets back into the rocks and gravel lining the waterways. So, it seems likely that the small adit we visited first would have been the one developed initially and then the larger adit punching into the hard rock would have come along later. In further support of the idea that these mines are older rather than newer is that, although it may possibly have been there at one point, there was no sign of rail at the mines we visited. The claim owner also stated that he has never seen any sign of rail here either. It is not difficult to imagine a swarm of miners crawling all over these canyon walls like ants during the “Gold Rush” era, churning up the creeks and digging out coyote holes. This initial surge of miners, however, would have been followed by a more patient, more sophisticated group of miners that had an eye on heading underground. At the second adit shown in this video, for example, you could have had something like a father and son team or two brothers slowly working away at that lode mine for years, chasing those quartz veins and hauling load after load of ore and waste rock out in wheelbarrows. I’m giving more of a general feel for the area with these videos rather than showing every single bit of mining history present as both sides of this canyon are covered in mines and the remains of mining equipment. We’ll see more of that in the next video. ***** 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 that I have explored: 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. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

The Dale Mine is located near the site of Old Dale, California. Historically this area was mined for native gold. It was reported that a single jack miner could expect to produce around 0.7 ounces per ton in gold. Many of the mines in the area were small operations worked by small miners and prospectors who vigorously defended their workings from all comers.

Visiting A Weird California Gold Mine
 
19:43
You never know what you’re going to get when exploring abandoned mines and this weird little gold mine is a prime example of that. Where do I start with this one? That homemade stamp mill that looks like it was made in someone’s garage? I’ve certainly never seen anything like that before. That jaw crusher for crushing the gold ore coming out of the mine? One of the largest I have ever seen… That enormous trench leading to the upper adit? I’ve certainly never seen anything like that before either. That series of cuts spiraling around the center point where it seemed a building had been at one time? That’s another thing I have certainly never seen before. So, what we were able to explore underground did not end up being enormous, but there were a lot of interesting things going on here. So far, I have been unable to locate any records that outline the history of this abandoned mine, which is a shame because I’d love to know more about it (and to share that with you). It’s difficult to tell with the homemade and repurposed equipment, but if I had to guess, I would estimate that the last work at this mine was done as recently as the late 1970s or even the early 1980s (a time that coincides with a large increase in gold mining activity as a result of surging gold prices during that period). So, it is possible that someone that mined here can recognize it and weigh in with additional details. As I mentioned at the start of the video, the guys I went out with on this day (and that took me to this site) are the Gold Country Explorers. The link to their page online is below: https://tinyurl.com/y3galchq I can’t help but cringe when seeing terrain that is as overgrown as this area in the Plumas National Forest is… The high cost of the criminally incompetent mismanagement of our forests in the U.S. is increasingly plain for all to see (and was painfully demonstrated last year in the deadly forest fire that destroyed the California town of Paradise). For those of you not familiar with natural fire cycles in the western United States, fires used to burn through these forests as a result of natural causes every 8-12 years on average. This process would thin out the brush and clear out dead material. This meant that fires were of a low intensity and large, healthy trees could easily shrug off the minor fires that passed through. The result was relatively open forests, dominated by big trees and supportive of diverse flora and fauna. Then came the policy decision from the U.S. Forest Service that ALL fires are bad and must be extinguished immediately. The results were predictable: dangerously overgrown, unhealthy forests that are filled with highly combustible material and are capable of supporting far fewer species... Now, rather than getting low intensity fires that improve the health of the forest, we get firestorms that incinerate everything in their path, killing even the largest trees. If the above sounds like I am speaking from extensive personal experience, well, I am. We really have a lot to thank the Forest Service for. ***** 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

Bryan Gold Mining Claim - California - 2017
 
03:12
The Bryan Mine and Mill is a notable historic Gold Mining Property with blocked reserves and a substantial milling operation which has left thousands of tons of waste rock and tailings. These tailings and waste rock were processed prior to 1900 from historical accounts and could likely be re-processed at a great profit. This claim was once a large production as evidenced by the amount of work done at the site. There are multiple large adits and shafts on the claim. In addition, there is existing evidence of further infrastructure including multiple foundations and rock walls.
Monarch Rand Gold Mine - California - 2018
 
03:14
Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. is happy to present The Monarch Rand Gold Mine. The Monarch Rand has a spotty history from its inception to present day. The mine has been noted for a large gold vein which is chased by the drift works. This vein is noted to be 3 ½ feet wide and carrying gold values of over 2 ounces per ton ($48.00 per ton with Gold priced at $20.75 per ounce). The mine is a massive old beast which has not been surveyed or mapped for at least 50 years. The original workings of the mine were reported to be 1600 feet. Today, there should be well over 4000' of workings in the mine.
CEO Clips: Vishal Gupta | California Gold Mining | Exploring for Gold in the Heart of California
 
01:31
Vishal Gupta, President & CEO of California Gold Mining (CGM:TSX.V) is a resource exploration company currently exploring gold in Mariposa County, California. The company’s main project is located along the Mother Lode Gold Belt, a very well established historical gold district in the heart of California. The property has lots of potential. Having drilled only one kilometre out of the four kilometres strike, the company has come up with the first 43-101 compliance resource of 900,000 ounces. They believe there is a much bigger gold potential on the rest of the mineralized zones, with potential for four times expansion. Positioned at a very important reflection point in its life cycle, the company hopes to realize all that potential for its shareholders over the next 12 to 24 months.

California’s Historic Italian Gap Mines
 
23:54
In the early days of California’s Gold Rush, the focus was on finding gold and not on keeping records. As such, I could uncover no specific information at all on the Italian miners that were here first to turn over the gravel and rocks in search of placer gold. The scant records I could locate on the lode mine were from more than a century ago and they only made a passing reference to it – no details at all were shared on matters such as production, equipment, the size of the mine, the number of miners, the history of the mine, etc. The one exception was a report that stated assays had revealed an average gold content of .22 troy ounces per ton of ore from this mine with an estimate of 50,000 tons of ore remaining. That’s 11,000 ounces of gold for those of you that don’t feel like doing the math. Other than that sliver of information, we are left with what we can observe for ourselves. However, with the knowledgeable audience I have, I’m sure we’ll be able to put a lot of pieces together on this one with the collective knowledge available. The wooden ore carts were popular in remote settings such as this mine because the metal frame and wheels could be transported in pieces and then assembled once the miners arrived at the site. The wooden components – essentially the “box” of the ore cart – could usually be sourced right around the mine itself by chopping a tree down. So, it was a relatively simple way to get ore carts into operation at a mine. The wooden ore carts are, obviously, not as durable as the metal ore carts. However, they can take a surprising amount of abuse and, aside from being much lighter to transport, they are much cheaper too. So, it isn’t a surprise that we find the metal bits and pieces from the remains of wooden ore carts all over the place in the regions of the Sierra Nevada where historic mining operations were. This was the first (and only) time I have ever seen an intact frame for a wooden ore cart in California. And I have only ever seen one fully intact wooden ore cart at a mine, which was preserved by the dry deserts of Nevada. I was quite intrigued by that mine up the side of the canyon with what I assume was an air shaft. The mines with dirt around them rather than hard rock erode shut very quickly. So, I wasn’t optimistic about getting into that one via the adit when I saw that waste rock pile from above. However, with ropes and technical gear, one could possibly drop down into the mine via the air shaft. I would imagine that no one has been in that mine for a very long time – more than 150 years if it dates to around the time of California’s Gold Rush. Imagine what could be in an untouched mine like that! Ha, probably nothing, but you never know… There was an old rock crusher in the river below the stamp mill, but the video of this was lost. This was a long, steep hike down and back out – especially when carrying fifty pounds of mine exploring gear on my back! The section I showed in the video with the national anthem of Italy playing in the background was just a tiny percentage of the hike and didn’t include the steepest parts. The flies and mosquitoes on the way back were absolutely awful too. So, in other words, I hope this video is enjoyed... ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park - Movie (HD)
 
05:00
California's history is defined by the era known as "The Gold Rush", a peiod that began in 1849 when gold was discovered near Sacramento. From that moment on, California was known as "The Golden State". But most people aren't aware that the gold rush ended when some of America's first environmental protection laws went into effect to stop hydraulic strip mining - the process of washing away hillsides to extract gold - and put the state on it's path to recovery.

Stopped by mine #2 and saw that the opening near it had been cleared a bit - so I had to investigate! Later I went back in to #3 to show the candles that I put in a few days ago. Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that exploring an old mine is safe, and I choose to enter at my own risk. I do not recommend that you go into any mines, tunnels, or caves that you may find, including the ones in this video. I have made this video so that you can see what the mines look like on the inside. If you choose to go in that is entirely your decision.

Exploring The Labyrinth Of An Abandoned California Gold Mine
 
34:28
This video takes us exploring to the Sacramento Gold Mine in the White Mountains near Chalfant, California on 5-4-2018. The trip starts with a drive across the foothills followed by a hike to the lower terminal of a tram that carried ore from the mine to a lower area where it could be trucked away. We continued up the trail to the upper tram terminal to find the source of the ore. We found three different entrances to the very irregular collection of diggings. There seems to be drifts that were excavated following rich ore veins going in all directions. The mine is quite low in many parts where you are unable to stand up straight. We explored as best we could with the time we had, but were unable to finish, and didn't even get up to the upper areas where an ore chute was coming down from above. The 5½ mile hike/exploration took us 4½ hours to complete and gained a total of 2100 feet in elevation.
