About: Exploring Tunnel #1 at the Hecla Mine
Awesome video as usual. The false floor just inside door was definitely a surprise!
Hecla mining company (NYSE, HL) still going strong in Coeur 'd Alene. COO makes $1.57M. I have heard that they are snooping around the Goldfield NV area.
I notice that many of the mines you explore, you do so alone. I can appreciate that as I for the last 45 years of exploring mines did so by myself as I could never find anyone that wanted to go with me. At first it was a bit scary but after a while it was just fun. When you are obsessed with exploring abandoned mines like we are, depending on others to go is useless. Your videos are still the greatest. Keep it up!
For some reason I really want to go find a mine cart and ride around on those tracks in there.
i must ask as i go through all of your videos, have you ever experienced a earthquake while underground? if so what was it like?
awesome video's . i enjoy them all , keep 'em coming frank !! :)
do you go in these alone or with people ??? what states are there mosty in im in Oregon near Portland be cool to find something like that around here thanks
3:45 is that an old security camera? Looks like the wires are dangling maybe. Ever see any modern cameras or sensors?
They removed the door from its hinges and it's only locked shut with a master lock? Damn, whoever did all that work could have saved a lot of trouble just haphazardly trying to pick the lock; Master locks can basically be picked by just breathing on them the right way lol!

Maybe they just wanted to make sure it wouldn't be easy for them to lock the door again with a REAL padlock?
hi how do you find your way back out when in a larger mine with lots of different tunnels .
do you or any one know of any mines in north cali mainly stanislaus forest or eldorado forest 
Seems there a lot of mines named Hecla. Wasn't that a mining company in the 1800s?
Frank, two things one serious one not, you choose:  I bought a green laser off ebay a while back, that might be a good light source for looking way down where you can't go. About $20. Then, have you considered that there might be a DeLorean behind some of that gobbing (or Doc Brown's remains)? 
How many experiences have you had that were considered paranormal?
I've seen the two popular ones, they're amazing! I'd love to see more if you have any.
When did you guys explore this mine and have you ever come across a ore cart that still works on the tracks? Where are most of the mines you explore what state?
You said that there was cold air coming out and that it means that it is a deep mine. I thought that it meant that it had another opening to it? And by the way there is this really cool mine on Vancouver Island B.C. called the Privateer mine located at Zeballos on the west side of the island. I went there and saw the portal but it didn't go in lol. Just a suggestion if you were to ever visit Vancouver Island. And also by the way the privateer mine is a old gold  mine.
Another great video once again! 
Interesting and very active.
