Back to Ontario for a few more videos. Check out meMiner's YouTube channel here if you get the chance. Thanks... http://bit.ly/MeMiner
These are the first holes that he's cone across that didn't need digging out so that he could fit down them to take a peak around. Anyway first holes he didn't try to go down. ? Is this the same person or did he get replaced when he was down a hole and secretly replaced. lol.
Howdy all, Where abouts is this mine located, I'd like to visit it myself some day.
Wow you got eaten alive. Holy cow. That's hard core
The "big motor" with the scoops is a water driven generator. There must be a water source higher up they could pipe and direct onto the "scoops".
Ricky at 9:22. 😂
hey chigg im pretty sure that those little bulldozer things ar4ecalled muckers and they were used to clear the tracks after they did the blasts
LOL 4:20 yea look that up
I think that motor is a water powered generator of some sort. There’s a guy on YouTube who lives in a log cabin in the woods and he has a water powered generator in a little stream and it has those cup/spoon like things at the end (however on a much smaller scale) which catches the water like a water wheel but much faster. Here’s a link: https://youtu.be/hlrEYAniJpU
Chigg buddy 420 means they like to smoke the wacky weed !!!!!
I've gathered over the time I've spent watching your videos you smoke bud. Lol
Hes got to be pulling our legs 😂 ain't no way he's that oblivious to 4:20
4.20- international "pot smokers light one up" aka stoners unite
OK think I got this now, I'm down...
Another great adventure Chigg. Thanks for taking us along. Come check us out some time if you get a chance. Going over to check out meMiner's channel now.
Where's the troll trains lol
What's going on with that dog's limp? Poor gal.
The "scoop" looking thing shown around 14:00 is a Pelton Wheel hooked up to a generator. A generator is basically an electric motor and vice versa. The component parts are essentially the same with only wiring changed. A Pelton wheel uses a high head, low flow water source to spin a generator. High head being a high starting elevation and therefore a lot of pressure. Other turbine designs work better as the flow rate increases.
@aquachigger dude the word is dragged. My ears 😭
that was an electric generator which was powered by falling water

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
