About: A Most Unexpected Gold Mine In The High Sierra

Why was quartz mined? What was it's use?
This video gave me the willies more than any of your other videos....
Looks like death just setting waiting for some exploration, those tempers are rotten, you couldn’t pay me enough.
This type of stope freaks me out. A huge narrow sloped chambers with a bagillion tons of mountain above held up by rotted tree trunks. I don’t think I have what it takes to go into that kind of stope.

Also, in some other video you mentioned “Frank and Paul”. Are you referring to the “exploring abandoned mines and unusual places” Frank and Paul?
At 19:10 that is an air powered piston pump.
Do you ever take bits of rock and process your own gold out of it?
Holy cats man what a wild job of timbering that mine has! Those old boys pushed the crazy/brave envelope working that one.
As a mining engineer, I can only say that you don't seem to be much concerned about losing your life in a rockfall, which only a slight vibration can set off. With that particular rock type, and its layering, the massive timbering and the present condition of the timber, that's clearly a very dangerous mine. Great video.
How do you find your way out?
Man, What a mess.
its a water pump, instead of steam driven this one is most likely air,
We need a compilation of “Top 10 mines we’d reopen”
14:32 Oh man it looks like a snow owl is watching you as you pan across the ore chute... just your light catching something white but damn that spooked me !!
Gold mine???
If all that pipe is copper, there's a small fortune lying around in there...
Looks like some kind of hydraulic pump to me.
there is a couple of places you could have used your rope, wow
Cooooool! That's kinda got a little bit of a Lord of the Rings/Goonies feel to it, awesome guys.
Metal detector
during which years was this mine in operation?
