About: Exploring Tim's Tin Shoe Mine: High-Altitude Abandoned Mine Adventure
Thanks for another great video!
I would loooooooooooooove to go here :C
Where is this located?
Just went through this mine a few months ago for the second time. Great location and a great hike. Found a old can of "Below U.S. Standard - Yellow Cling Peaches" so that was pretty great. Very cool, great channel!
what is the most dangerous mine you ever explored..
Jeremy needs to invest in a sling for that 22 rifle he carries.
Hi Frank , we actually know this mine very well and can tell you it's real name if you like and what was mined out of it and how. Anyway great film footage and that takes us back. Take Care.

I am not anti-gun [far from it] but I am curious as to the reasons of bringing a firearm to a mine. I would think some of the particles within the mine would cause damage. Are there dangers that would require you to bring a fire arm, either man or beast, Or is it just a chance to get some shooting practice in?
I love all the old mining artefacts strewn about slowly decaying.
I would love to check out a mine here in az with you guys! don't know anyone that I would trust to go down one with, however, I have watched many of your videos. I can tell you do your research! PM me on Facebook if you're ever out in AZ. I have a full size Chevy that will go down many of these off-road trails to some cool mines in AZ! I'm located in Apache junction and if you search Kyerstin my name will be first to show. thanks again for risking so much to bring all of us back in time!
Have you ever thought about obtaining rock samples from inside the mines you tour and donating them to a local or state university? 1) it helps to build a database of what ore is available, 2) The samples might contain other valuable ores and minerals that might lead to re-opening the mine and creating jobs (it's a long shot with the mining laws and regs, but a strategic move given the current world market) 3) You might be able to write the donation off your taxes. I imagine you burn through a lot of gasoline and camping food.
4) You could 3D map these mines. at least the major levels and that also helps geologist understand the ore emplacement/ore body better.
I helped on a geology Ph.D research thesis out west and often found myself peering into abandoned and forgotten mines and even though I used to cave I never entered them. Your videos answer my question about what it looks like inside an abandoned mine.
For such a high elevation mine, it was quite an elaborate mine. By the graffiti, it appears the mine was used several times over a forty year period. Perhaps the claim changed hands several times. Very interesting
nice gun what is It?
Great exploration! Thanks for the videos!
I would die to get those artifacts!!!! I love
the 1910s-1960s I would be so happy so explore.
I was born in Phoenix, and live in Lake havasu for awhile.
Don't know if you know where thats at, but every time we go
on a vacation I always find something historic on the way. Such a long
wide open desert!
I think you need a sling on that 12 guage.
Do you guys ever get lost? And is it hard to breathe down in the mine?
Run into snakes often ?
Very festive, indeed!
Cool mine and nice mining video, like every time!
