About: Getting To Know Kay Cooper (Mine)...
Any idea on if this one is still open? Or has DNR gotten to it?
I have been down many shafts in California and Nevada, I really appreciate the hard work of these miners, some of these workings were over 100 miles away from Civilization !! and the harsh weather in a tent during the winter !! They were strong in there motivation and just tough people !!
But I do want to say thank you for showing me my history even though I live in Canada you Americans are still part of US Canadian history I don't care what any prison says but you still have a good president and most Canadians wish we had him as a prime minister so thank you again for listening to my rant you guys are like our big brothers and please never forget that
I love your videos I love the insect to show how you get into brass Canadian you guys have way more history than us in the parks department is trying to shut you down please stop showing the beginnings of your adits trust me as a Canadian I would love to travel to see them what if the parks apartment gets a hold of them they will fill the men and I would love to see your history your history is more pronounced Bernard dinar history and I would love to say I was American just see your history I also feel American I have two brothers that live in the United States I have two brothers that live in Canada my dad was from California so we have a good time if you understand what I'm trying to say your history is our history and please don't let the parks take this away from us I love seeing the inside of Mines because here in Canada we don't have that opportunity
Discriminating miners... Black Shale Matters!
Sure is a lot of rails etc outside set up for such small and short tunnels
"let's see what we can hear"
That head frame was awesome. ...I'm very surprised that no one has torched it. Must have been very remote desert. Thank you for another precise document!
So much going on at this mine at one time! Tons of labor putting all this stuff together with so many confusing transfer points and a maze of rails, was still so interesting and awesome to see! Thanks for so much amazing videos, but I do blame you for me not getting enough sleep at night only because I'm constantly saying I'll watch 1 more video then go to bed, and of course that never happens😂
Pretty cool, thanks for the tour!
What era / decade do these mines date to?
And where did the timbers come from? Nothing to be seen nearby that could be used... hauled in by cart and sheer brute force?
Do you ever take the metal detector around the old mines?
You ever run into any wildlife in these mines?
Sometimes for me it's just as interesting seeing the buildings, ore cart tracks, and the areas outside the mine where the miners would process the ore. It really helps to paint a picture of what it was like when the mine was operational all those years ago.
Great mine, especially for an accidental find. You'll have to go back some day with rope to see the rest. I'm looking forward to the mine you were actually heading to before the wrong turn.
Thumbs up tucson's az
Another mine exploring channel did a video on this mine and actually had included a prior photo of the vertical shaft near the gate and ore chute near the massive pit. It had a very cool metal man lift that ran on the 4x4 vertical guides, but someone came in with a saws all or something and cut the track timbers (which you could see the cuts) and took the man lift cage. Very cool site for what seems like very little adits.
gotta head down the manway on the shaft..someone refurbed that shaft with a new metal gate on the ore shoot......with new air pipe too.....something is down there
wonder if Cooper and Peterson ever made any $ from this deposit...........
gotta say ....me and Slim just love to see when you upload a vid......Slims fetches the Hard tack and beans and I get the Sarsaparilla....good stuff my friend.....thanks for doing what you do....
