About: Detailed Tour Of A Small Gold Mine
wow!! haven't seen a Jimcrow for decades - used to use one when I first started mining
we used to use Wombat drill machines for rock bolting in coal mines - Australian designed device, very easy to use
I knew Don, many years ago. I spent some time flying in his Cessna, more time helping set chokers and skidding poles out of the woods on his father's land. Don used to fly from his father's home to the mining school, I think Ely, Nevada, weather permitting. I think the big compressor is the same one that was on his father's land but that was before 1960. That, a dump truck, and the Cat D-4 were his. He's about ten years older than I am, and seems to be in better shape. Great guy all the way around.
The Old Man has forgotten more about hard rock mining than most will ever know.
Great video, great of him to share his time and knowledge. TY
This guy is himself a gold mine of knowledge!
I loved hard rock mining, sure miss those days. I loved setting timbers and blasting. Don't see many mines this equipped anymore usually pillaged or striped out.
What a great man!
Horse shoe. Horse shoot. Or.... ore shoot?
What are these miners saying
Excellent narration by the elderly gentleman and very knowledgeable. It's a shame that most people of his mine working era are vanishing. It leaves us to carry on the knowledge of yesterday.
Wow, what a great video! Very fascinating, interesting stuff. One thing I've always wondered about these small, low-volume mines -- how and where do they process the ore? And where do they send it to be smelted?
Such a great man
Thank You was a really interesting.
THANK YOU to Don? The owner of the mine for taking the time to educate all of us. I wonder what the richest ore he has ever seen looked like. Hope he has many more good years doing what he likes best. Probably chasing the girls! And thank you to the camera man/producer for keeping your mouths shut (most of the time) and ears open! Well done.
I'd work for the guy for free it is so interesting
Pretty cool. The guy has some good knowledge.
Men are men an women loved it, ol miners , loggers hard to find now days I still work with 100 + tools I'm the last to use them sad
Добрый дедушка , и очень грамотный шахтёр судя по всему
