About: Exploring Old Mines And Antique Mining Equipment
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

The hydro electric generator used to use a water tower and a reservoir. It used air powered water pumps to put the water back into the tower from the reservoir. The "big" air line is only a middle size line, but it is what runs from the main line to the site. The main line comes from an air plant on the Montreal river, called Hound Chutes. It used falling water to trap and compress the air, and they supplied air to over 75 mines over a 32x10 KM area. The "shovel things" are muckers.. they would leave "land bridges" across open stopes or cuts/trenches because there are usually a bunch of veins running the same direction - parallel like- and it was easier to leave a land bridge than to build one. The platforms of timbers were work stations. That cut is only about 70' deep, the open shaft is about 125' and the main shaft, where the headframe still stands (but slated to be demo'd this summer :( ) "Nipissing 73" is 328' deep with a winze dropping another 220'. The vein the headframe sits on (Meyer Vein) was roughly 1200' long and 110' vertical of native silver. This one vein alone produced around 13,000,000 oz of silver! (The biggest producing vein on any of the Nipissing claims in Cobalt) Nothing beats a knowledgable local for historical information..
i would of thrown a glowstick down
Your funny they are not birthdays... 420 is national smoke out day for marijuana.
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".

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
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.
