About: A Most Unexpected Gold Mine In The High Sierra
some time can you light a couple candles just to show how little light they had back then
Is this part of the secret cabin claim?
the desert must have been a forest before those miners arrived.....
I spent ages cutting (usually wet) timber almost that size in a coalmine - always by hand, took two men to do it
U should get an underwater rov or boat u can put a go pro on that be cool
Man ... this gave me the cold sweats ... had to stop whatching
Not all quartz holds gold, not all gold is found in quartz
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?
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”
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 !!
