This is kinda like a free outdoor museum in Goldfield, Nevada! You can see and learn about the ex-mining town and appreciate how Nevada's civilized age began! Goldfield, Nevada! This once used to be a thriving town, but once the mines dried up, very little is left! We ate in the local cafe and met the owners of the radio station while visiting. They invited us back to have a tour of the radio station, it was a really fun experience! We will definately stop by next time we pass by! Goldfield is an unincorporated community and the county seat of Esmeralda County, Nevada, United States. It is a census-designated place (CDP), with a resident population of 268 at the 2010 census, down from 440 at the 2000 census. It is located 247 miles (398 km) southeast of Carson City, along U.S. Route 95. Goldfield was a boomtown in the first decade of the 20th century due to the discovery of gold — between 1903 and 1940, Goldfield's mines produced more than $86 million. Much of the town was destroyed by a fire in 1923, although several buildings survived and remain today, notably the Goldfield Hotel, the Consolidated Mines Building (the communications center of the town until 1963), and the schoolhouse. Gold exploration continues in and around the town today.

Views: 32839 Exploring Abandoned Mines
There is quite a lot to this abandoned mine site and so while I found a fair amount when I was wandering around on my own, I still missed interesting pieces of mining equipment that Michael showed me the next day. Further, I’m quite confident that there is plenty more scattered around in the brush or underneath the ruined buildings that we both missed. Eventually, forest fires will roar through all of the areas where these abandoned mines we document are located. When that happens, many hidden adits and pieces of metal equipment that were hidden away in brush will be revealed. It certainly isn’t in any way worth having a forest fire for, but it is an interesting side effect. As I mentioned in the prior video in this series, credit for our trip to this mine site goes to Gold Country Explorers. They get out in the forests (mostly in California’s Gold Country) and have an uncanny knack for tracking down stamp mills and other impressive elements of our industrial history – not to mention, a fair number of adits too! Check out their site – they post some great pictures on there: https://www.facebook.com/Gold-Country-Explorers-850167371691275/ It felt good to discover that adit that the Forest Service missed near the top of the hill. They are pretty thorough, but some things are not easy to spot in the forest and many adits are not marked on the topographic map. As I mentioned in the video, I’d like to show you the portal and how this adit was essentially hiding in plain sight. However, if I post that, the Forest Service will be able to find it pretty easily and will be out there as soon as the snow melts to gate it. So, I reluctantly declined to share the view from the outside. Like I said in the video, we need to preserve some of our industrial history outside of a museum. I also think it is important to maintain at least something in the way of the spirit of adventure and the excitement of discovery in our increasingly fearful and risk-averse society. The site of the shaft that we visited toward the end of the video was so badly degraded that I mistakenly speculated that it was an adit (easy to do when there were adits all over the place). However, my subsequent research demonstrated that it was, in fact, a shaft. I could not find many records on it, but the shaft dropped down for almost four hundred feet and apparently had two levels to tap into the hard rock gold veins underground. The large waste rock pile all around that section is supposed to be from the shaft. I’m not sure how the ore was transported from the shaft to the mill, but I’d be curious to know. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

I visited this historic ghost town and mining camp on the third day of my 2017 Nevada/Mojave ghost town trip. Most of the video features the large Fad Shaft mining complex. This mine was built to tap deep ore, but encountered insurmountable flooding problems and never went into production. This site was only accessible by drone.

Talk about an unusual object and location! The fabled Medicine Rock is something I read about several years ago but never really pinned down its location. Through some light research, I was finally able to ascertain the rock's location south of Lida, NV. The rock is a gigantic, volcanic boulder, and it was believed to have mysterious, sacred healing properties for the Native Americans who lived in the area for thousands of years long before the white settlers arrived. Once the Europeans arrived and mining took off in the area, the rock became a popular meeting spot. It seemed everybody knew where the Medicine Rock was, and it was easy to spot in the relatively barren, undulating desert landscape. This video also has some exciting announcements concerning my YouTube channel as well as some sneak-peeks at some of my upcoming videos of abandoned mines.

While both mines could have been claimed separately, and would have provided great value to their individual owners, we chose to claim them together to provide the future owner with additional value and a great group of workings. In addition to the double mines, this claim also has the distinction of being a gold/copper/turquoise mine. Add those perks to the fantastic scenery and you've got yourself one of the most exciting claims that we've put together in a long time!

For more on the Volcano Mine please follow this link: https://youtu.be/MYndubSpTtk This video describes our visit to Pioche, Nevada on 10-16-2018. Pioche is/was a mining town. William Hamblin discovered gold and silver there in 1863 and in 1868 sold his claim to a banker from San Francisco named F. L. A. Pioche. By the late 1860's Pioche was one of the baddest and roughest towns in the west and was ruled only by the gun when there were disputes. It was also one of the most important silver mining towns in Nevada. By 1872 the mining camps pushed the population to over 7000, but the fortunes soon faded and today the population is about 1000. During the boom times there were reported to be over 70 saloons and a busy red light district and along with that many murders. In the early 1870's it's reported that 60% of the states murders occurred there and supposedly around 100 murderers are buried at Boot Hill cemetery. Much of the mining was over by 1900 although some mining took place during WW2. There was an aerial tram that is still standing today that hauled ore from Treasure Hill to the Godbe Mill . There are several attractions around town including a small museum and if you like rock and roll bands stop in to Kelly Garni's art studio/cafe/bar and say hello. He was a founding member of the band Quiet Riot and was a childhood friend of the great guitarist Randy Rhoads. Kelly has his autobiography called 'Angels With Dirty Faces' for sale in his establishment. We enjoyed a meal there and also enjoyed talking with Kelly who has some great stories.

We were very fortunate to be afforded the opportunity to visit this historic site as it is certainly not open to the public... Aside from the colorful personality of Mr. Randy Yager, we were also treated to an extensive tour of a rich - and still producing - lode gold mine (And not a dull visit of the “stay behind the white lines” variety that would be found on the tourist circuit either). As viewers of this channel know, it is rare for us to encounter very much in the way of historical mining equipment and artifacts at an abandoned mine. Many abandoned mines have had much of their equipment and other treasures carted away by the miners themselves when the mine was abandoned. Over the following decades, “collectors” carry away pretty much everything else that can be lifted and hauled away… Not at this mine though! At this mine, we get to see what a functioning gold mine looks like – one that was a medium-sized, mine-to-mill operation several decades ago and that now might as well be a living museum from that era. The shower room/work shop/drill room/bunkhouse/compressor room and the mill could use a little paint and some duct tape before they would be in pristine condition again, but we can still see all of the equipment in them as it was when this mine was in full operation and see exactly how things worked back then. I love the underground time, but I found that “moment frozen in time” experience on the surface to be fascinating. You’ve got to think that they were still actively mining here up into the 1960s when gold was $35 an ounce and the miners were able to support themselves on that. So, consider the potential of this mine now if it were to be brought back up to maximum production! With the background noise and different people talking, it can be hard to hear him sometimes, but if you listen carefully, Randy provides a lot of information about this mine. I tried to include as much of him discussing the mine as I could, but I had almost two hours of video that needed to be whittled down to make it digestible for the short attention span of many (but certainly not all) YouTube viewers. It was interesting (to me at least) to hear that the miners had simply tunneled past badly caved sections in the mine rather than deal with the hassle of trying to rehab these sketchy sections. I wasn’t clear if the 3,000+ feet that the adit ran past the waste rock pile where Cory and I climbed up the raise was just caved in one section or if essentially all of it was caved. I believe it was one section, but I’m not certain of that. As you may have heard, aside from the thousands of feet that the main haulage adit kept running, there were also four levels above us in the haulage adit and several levels below us. So, this is a pretty extensive mine. I’d imagine there could be some pretty good stuff to see in these other sections. It would have been wonderful to spend a whole day here, but when you’re someone’s guest, you move at their pace. Thank you again, Cory and Randy, for this adventure. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

**PLEASE NOTE** Nelson Ghost Town is its official name. It was abandoned for some time before being purchased by the present owners. Now it's used for movie and photo shoots. It is a tourist attraction, but it's the least commercialized as the others. The others I saw were completely rebuilt back to original state as well as roped off like a museum. This was the least touched out of them all, as stated in my narration in the beginning of the video. Exploring this place was a real pleasure. This ghost town is in South Nevada in Nelson, El Dorado Canyon. It was first named "El Dorado" by the Spaniards when they first discovered it in 1775. This ghost town used to be a thriving miners' town with 3 mines which operated from 1859 to 1945 at the end of World War II. It was one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada where they mined gold, silver, copper and lead yielding over $6 million. The town is made up of three (now abandoned) mines; Techatticup, Wall Street, and El Dorado Rand Group. The source of transportation for goods was by steamboat on the Colorado River just at the end of the road. Most of the miners here were deserters from the Civil War. The town and mines had a very bad reputation as it was a lawless community being so isolated from the Sheriff and civilization. There were many killings and feuds here, so much so that it was an ordinary occurance. The U.S. Army set up an outpost here in 1867 to protect the community and riverboats' freight from Native Americans. The army left the camp in 1869 and the mines thrived once again until the end of the war. The movie '3000 Miles to Graceland' with Kevin Costner and Kurt Russel used this area as part of their movie shoot where they blew up an airplane on-site. Remnants of the airplane were left behind and shown in this video.

Cherry Creek is a historic mining town located in northern White Pine County, in northeastern Nevada in the western United States. It is a census county division (CCD), with a population at the 2010 census of 72. Since the 1940s, the community has slowly declined in size, although mine leaseholders have always been active in the district, and occasional mining activity has taken place. Total production for the district since 1872 has been estimated at roughly 20 million dollars. Throughout the 2000s, the "Barrel Saloon" a local business, remained open; however, it closed in July 2010. Many historic structures, including a museum, an early one-room schoolhouse, and the Cherry Creek Barrel Saloon, still stand among more modern buildings.

In the 1980's the abandoned Nevada Northern at Ely was given by Kennacott Copper to the city of Ely to become a museum, part of the Nevada State Railroad Museum. 30 miles or so north on the main line to the Union Pacific was a beautiful ghost town called Cherry Creek. It was soon gone, lost to time, but for a while it was an amazing place..... ************************************************** Visit the Cherry Creek Nevada Ghost Town to see the depot and tank before the removal of the depot and collapse of the water tank. Nothing remains of this ghost town and ghost tracks except photos and film. ************************************************************* From the web site: The Nevada Northern Railway Museum: Historic passenger railroad featuring train rides pulled by century-old steam engines.

On October 31st, 2018, I decided to take a road trip to visit the Rhyolite ghost town. Rhyolite was a mining town near Beatty, NV. In 1904 they discovered gold in the area, so by 1905 they had established the town. A year later, Rhyolite was becoming a town with all the modern luxuries. In 1910 the mines began to fail and the population began to dwindle. By 1920 the population had went from 3-5 thousand to a couple hundred. Some of the buildings were moved to nearby towns, or salvaged for building materials. What's left is visible in this video. The Goldwell Open Air Museum is located nearby. The first sculpture was created in 1984. The "ghosts" were created by Charles Albert Szukalski. The Last Supper and Ghostrider. Dr. Hugo Heyrman - Lady Desert: The Venus of Nevada 1992 Fred Bervoets - Tribute to Shorty Harris 1994 Sofie Siegmann - Sit Here! FEATURED MUSIC: The "Dead Ink Theme" and "The Zombie Dance" were produced by Dave Mackey. "Slice of Life" - Kung Fu Vampire (Used with permission)
