Incredible Nevada Silver Mine - Part 1
 
25:37
Buckle up for an extended series on one of my favorite abandoned mines… I’ve shown a number of smaller mines recently to set the stage for the explore of this huge abandoned mine – an abandoned mine that is filled with a number of incredible features that I have never seen anywhere else. I can sincerely say without hesitation that this is the most unique abandoned mine that I have ever explored. And having visited hundreds of mines by now, that is not a statement that I make lightly! Right at the start, the wind roaring out of the portal should give you a hint of the scale of this mine and what is ahead. At one point in the video, you’ll hear me ask how long we have been hiking in for and that reply from my exploring buddy on this trip is not a joke. Perhaps needless to say, we were pretty worn out after finishing this explore and went through a LOT of batteries! You might be curious about the history of this mine? As the title implies, the primary ore here was silver, but large pockets of gold and lead were discovered as well. The rich deposits at this site were first discovered in the 1870s and the adit we entered the mine through was driven in the 1880s to connect with earlier workings in this mining district. Peak production took place over the next couple of decades, but sporadic work continued through the 1960s. As the underground workings connect several different mines, it is impossible now to tell where one historic mine ended and another began. However, just be aware that you are seeing what were once several mines that have been consolidated into one. Obviously, I cut out almost all of the walk in because it was mostly featureless tunnel and I figured you didn’t want to see two full-length videos of us just walking. Although, I was tempted to have a video of that just so you could see how long the walk in is! However, the wind noise is annoying and so you are receiving the highlights version of the long walk we made to get to the heart of the mountain where the good stuff like that elevator and historic hoist were to be found. Don’t worry, the wind noise goes away once we really get inside. That inclined winze we follow up in the coming videos leads to some really amazing finds… If you’re a fan of any of the content that has been on this channel, stick with this series because this mine plays host to some of the best stuff we have ever found. The “we” on this explore was another YouTuber that goes by the handle of “Mines of the West” and has a focus on exploring abandoned mines in Oregon and Washington. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Incredible Nevada Silver Mine - Part 4

Well, here it is… I’ve explored hundreds of abandoned mines now and I’ve seen some amazing things, but nothing has been as awesome for me as stepping into the bottom of that gigantic natural cavern. I will never forget that. I can only imagine what the miners thought when they first punched in to the cave and tried to gain an understanding of how huge it was with only the benefit of candles or carbide lamps. Interestingly, the reports I read on this mine indicated that the floor of this cavern was covered in staggeringly rich oxidized ore. So, the natural processes that formed the cave (presumably water passing through the mountain?) left behind a rich reward for the pioneering miners that discovered the cave. The geological features inside the cavern lead me to believe that there was a fair amount of water that flowed through despite this mine being in the desert. Pretty interesting geology, no? In a way, it is a shame that the miners were not more concerned with aesthetics because it would have been nice to see how massive the cavern was originally. However, sentimentality aside, the miners must have been delighted to fill that cavern up with waste rock rather than having to haul it all of the way outside. Everything that we were climbing around on in there was all waste rock. Does anyone disagree with me or have another idea about that unusual two-toned pile I climbed up? Given how finely ground it was, it sure looked like tailings. The miners dropped tons and tons of waste rock into the huge cavern, why not tailings from the surface as well? Even with the benefit of time, I still don’t have a better idea on that one. It's a good thing that air flowing out reminded us of that last “little” drift we hadn’t explored, wasn’t it? We were packed up and were heading out… Ha, that would have sucked to go all of the way there and to have missed that cavern!! A slight correction – in the video, I mention the collapse that we saw the other side of “in the last video.” It was actually the second video rather than the last video (that was a huge level). We’re not done with this mine yet! The fifth and final video in this series will be posted next Wednesday and there is some great stuff still to be seen. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Incredible Nevada Silver Mine  - Part 2
 
28:18
And now we start working through exploring the upper levels of this awesome abandoned mine... I mentioned in the first video that this mountain was Swiss-cheesed with natural caverns and you’ll see more and more for the geology fans and the rock heads as we continue to make our way up through the levels. Given the absence of daylight above, we don’t know if that was a winze or a capped shaft toward the end of this video, but those flooded levels show you why we are heading up rather than down. Given how far we moved up into the heart of the mountain from the level where we started in the first video, one would think the water table couldn’t be too far below that first level. However, when we dropped that rock down the winze with the elevator and hoist, it fell for a very long way before impacting something. So, maybe that section isn’t flooded? My knowledge of hydrology is too limited to understand underground rivers and that sort of thing. Also, I don’t know about you, but I love having the miner’s graffiti in the mines. Sometimes it is useful for providing dates, but when you can see the personalities of the miners carried through time on the ribs (sides) of an adit, I find that to be magical. The moment is long past and the miners may all be gone now, but it isn’t a stretch to imagine being there with the miners joking around with each other and giving each other a hard time. That caved section we talked about toward the end of the video that blocked our progress will become quite relevant again later. Don’t worry, you will see the other side of it. And in a very dramatic setting too! My apologies for the mild annoyance presented by the flickering effect in some scenes. This is produced by pulse width modulation from my headlamp. Although not ideal, it hopefully does not take away from the content of the video and the issue has been corrected for future videos. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

We’re at the end of this series now... If you’ve made it through all five of these videos, I thank you for watching and I’m going to assume that you saw why we enjoyed this abandoned mine so much. With some mines, there is a feeling of relief to get outside again into the open skies and fresh air. However, I actually find myself reluctant to leave mines such as this one or the Buca della Vena Mine in Italy. Sure, we’re usually tired after a day of scrambling through the different levels, but they are really fun to explore and after seeing so many amazing things, one is reluctant to leave the party early. As you probably gathered, this is not the last level in this mine, but this is as far as we could go on this trip. There was no way we could have gotten up those soggy, rotten ladders running up the side of that shaft or winze (I still don’t know if that was a winze or a capped shaft). You saw how many rungs were missing and by the point we arrived, those ladders were essentially mush. Speaking of rotten things… How did you like that false floor hanging out over that huge open space? I thought it was pretty cool to be able to look back on that and to see what the platform looked like underneath. It isn’t often that one is able to get a perspective like that. And I’m glad I didn’t go out on it because that would not have been a pleasant ride! I’m also glad we were able to gain additional views down into the huge cave as well. I don’t know if you noticed or not, but at one of those openings I showed down into the cave, you could see ore cart rail jutting out a little bit into the opening. That was one of the points where the miners were dumping the waste rock into the cave. As great as it was to see more of the enormous cave, I think my favorite thing on this upper level was that sign displaying the “Mine Hoist Signal Code.” It is very rare to find intact signs like that. First of all, not many mines are big enough to even have one in the first place. Secondly, the wet or flooded mines will soon cause a sign like that to rot away to nothing. And, lastly, although they might be preserved in the dry, desert mines, those are some of the first mine relics to disappear into the backpacks of “collectors.” So, it is a treat to see one still in place where it belongs. It took us a full day to explore the section of this mine that you saw in this series of five videos, but that is far from the whole mine. I’ve spoken with an individual that knows this mine very well and has seen far more of it than we have. According to him (which is supported by the maps I have seen), we saw only approximately 20% of this abandoned mine in this series. Imagine a series of 25-30 videos that it would have taken to cover this one mine! We haven’t been in many mines that are that big… Really, there aren’t many mines that ARE that big. I haven’t posted them yet, but I actually still have two mine series to publish that are also of enormous mines like this. I think you’ll like those... ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

28:23
Given what a labyrinth this mine is, I thought it would be useful to use that deep winze (or capped shaft) as a point of reference for you. This level is huge! As you can see, it has taken almost two full videos for this level alone. And it still isn’t quite finished yet! However, with the many pockets and twists and turns, it took a while for us to cover everything. Given the size of this level as well as the many ore chutes, it seems a pretty safe bet that a lot of ore was extracted from this section. It also seemed as if there was a lot of mixing of the older and newer workings on this level of the mine. In other words, it seemed as if there were a lot of sections where the miners from the 20th century punched into workings - or overlapped with workings - from the miners in the 1800s. It was somewhat difficult to tell given how many boards had come down, but I believe there is a good chance that we saw examples of square set timbering on two occasions on this level. Square set timbering is the use of what are essentially wooden cubes stacked on top of each other to fill a void or cavity. They can be used to support enormous spaces (which this mine has an abundance of). I pointed out what I thought might have been square set timbering in the video, but didn’t mention how rare it is. To put it in perspective, I’ve explored hundreds of abandoned mines now and that is the first time I have ever seen square set timbering. How about that yellow portable air compressor? At least I think that’s what it was… I love the ingenuity of miners. Every mine we go to that still has some old mining equipment around, will have a good display of unique innovations from the miners – something created on the spot that we haven’t seen anywhere else.

Surrounding the Stephanite is the lighter gray, silver mineral, Argentite. Splotching around that and in between are yellowish-orange quartz-like portions that can be Electrum, a natural alloy of gold and silver. Dark and light gray minerals are often high grade silver minerals as noted in the placard. Electrum from alluvium placer of a river was used to make the world's first minted gold coinage in the region of present day Turkey.

Silver Rush!!! The Comstock Lode And Silver City, Nevada
 
04:26
Comstock Lode, rich deposit of silver in Nevada, U.S., named for Henry Comstock, part-owner of the property on which it was discovered in June 1859. Virginia City, Washoe, and other mining "boomtowns" quickly arose in the vicinity, and in 10 years the lode's output justified establishment of a U.S. branch mint (closed in 1893) at Carson City. In the meantime, Republican leaders eager to add another loyal state to the Union used the probability that the lode would attract additional thousands to justify the admission of Nevada as a state in 1864. In the peak years of 1876--78, silver ore worth about $36,000,000 was extracted annually. Production declined sharply thereafter, and the rich lower levels of the lode were flooded in 1882. Virginia City and the other mining towns disappeared or became tourist attractions.

The wooden trestle is still in very good condition.
Ione Ghost Town | Historic Silver Mining Town | Nevada | USA
 
02:20
Ione, Nevada is a ghost town in Nye County, Nevada, located approximately 23 miles east of Gabbs, Nevada. Current services include one grocery store. Ione came into existence in November, 1863 after silver was discovered by one Mr. P. A. Havens in the Shoshone Range. While most of the mining in the area (the Union Mining District) was closer to communities such as Union and Grantsville, Ione developed as a trade and milling center. Members of the community were shortly petitioning the territorial government for the formation of a new county and in January, 1864 Nye county was organized within the Nevada Territory; Ione was granted a stipend of $800.00 with which to construct the county's first courthouse.

Exploring The Abandoned Volcano Mine -  Pioche, Nevada
 
23:31
This video describes our exploration of the Volcano Mine near Pioche, Nevada the way it was on 10-16 -2018. The Volcano Mine is a silver, lead and manganese mine that has a deep main shaft and extensive underground workings. There is a substantial head frame and ore bin that was used to hoist the ore out of the mine and load it on to trucks to be hauled to a mill. There is a building still standing that housed the machinery used to run the hoist and to supply the air and water that the miners needed. There are a few other shafts nearby that were dug as well as the main shaft. I don't advise anyone to enter this mine, or any other mine, as doing so can mean a high risk of bodily harm to yourself. Feel free to ask any questions you may have or to leave a comment. Thanks for watching!

Finding a Rare Mucker, Fallout Shelter Supplies, and Having a Blackout Inside the Silver Reef Mine
 
16:00
The Nevada desert has some hidden, abandoned gold mines that are full of treasures. I found one such mine when I discovered the Silver Reef Mine tucked up in a remote canyon. Inside its labyrinth of tunnels and levels, I found many artifacts including an ultra-rare, functional mucker still on the ore cart tracks. A mucker resembles a miniature bulldozer and was used to remove waste rock (muck) from the mine. Finding an intact mucker in an abandoned mine is extraordinarily rare. In another deeper part of the Silver Reef Mine, I stumbled upon a cache of fallout shelter supplies -- many cans of dried goods, tubs of granola, and other things. Someone must've been planning on using the mine as a "bugout shelter" or fallout shelter in the past. There was no evidence of any recent visitation to this area of the mine that I could see. The Silver Reef Mine impressed me with its endless tunneling, many different levels, and tons of artifacts left in place when it was abandoned long ago. At the request of some viewers, I demonstrate in the video what a total blackout would look like to anybody unlucky enough to be caught in such a situation deep inside the Silver Reef Mine. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration
Gold Mining in Nevada

At 1600 dollars per ounce this gold mining operation can afford to mine, when gold prices fall they will have to slow down the gold mining.

Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 3
 
16:45
After following the drift we ended the last video with to its surprising conclusion, we started moving back toward the main hub of this enormous abandoned mine. Along the way, we explored many of the side passages and raises that were bypassed on the route in through the main haulage adit located in this part of the mine. Following the very long hike up and out of the mine, we set up our camp for the night (we spent all day underground in this mine) and then headed above the mine to see some of its more interesting features above ground. You’ll see that we explore some of the mine buildings, including one that has an amazing collection inside of it. Although I was curious about what was inside of the modern mine buildings we discovered, I also had a specific destination in mind. One of my exploring buddies – Adit Addicts – had spotted what appeared to be a steam shovel abandoned above the modern mine we explored in this video. I wanted to see this machine to confirm what it was and also to film it if it really did turn out to be a steam shovel. As with the mine itself, it was quite a hike up into the hills above it. Fortunately, I was able to find the machine (although the GPS took me on a terrible route to do so) and it was indeed a steam shovel. Sort of... It was a steam shovel at one time, but had actually been converted over to run on an internal combustion motor. I had never seen anything like that before and it was pretty amazing to see one out in the desert mountains still next to the pile of dirt it had been excavating decades ago. The modern abandoned mine featured in this video is definitely not the first mine in this area and when looking around above the mine, it was fairly common to see old collapsed adits and old surface mining work. Many of these seemed to be more exploratory in nature though. This area has historically been a large producer of ores containing lead, copper and silver and a thriving town was once supported by the mines. However, today, there is almost no trace left of the ghost town or an aerial tramway that also used to be here. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, guess what? We have fun doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a hundred years, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Nevada's Abandoned Hughes Mine
 
09:32
Mines – abandoned or otherwise – almost always seem to present surprises for explorers… This lead and silver mine in the Nevada has a series of shafts running along the upper edge of the property. Some of these shafts are quite large and deep. So, when I came across an extremely large, modern adit leading toward this cluster of shafts, I assumed this was a haulage adit of sorts that tied into the shafts. I was mistaken. And, as my opening sentence implied, I was surprised by the reality of the large adit. This mine appears to have been worked over at least several decades. The mill building and headframe have been completely demolished and some of the shafts have decayed quite considerably. However, that adit was probably no older than the 1980s and the main shaft was in fairly decent shape and probably dates to around the time the adit was constructed. I am uncertain as to the age of the ore bin and I do not have enough experience with them to offer an intelligent guess. The ore bin ended up being probably my favorite thing about this mine site… Although, I was also taken by the number of jackrabbits (they are actually hares) and by the number of barrels of cyanide in the dry wash. I really wanted to provide some drone footage so we could see an overview of the site, but the controller just would not connect to the drone that day. Very frustrating. As I often say, technology is great when it works. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Exploring the Tonapah Divide Mine in Nevada

This was the biggest mine we have seen. It was a tunnel mine going in every which direction but after closing they came back and made it a open mine. I'm surprised the shafts are still there and they didn't go farther. The remaining silver vein is still 3ish feet in thickness. I guess it has to be atleast 4ft for it to be profitable.

The Pan American Mine Exploration
 
06:07
Spent a couple hours exploring the Pan American Mine near Pioche, Nevada. The mine was, as far as I could determine, a zinc mine with smaller amounts of silver and gold being mined there as well. Its last production period was in the early 1980s. The mine has been abandoned since. Unfortunately, the entire mine has filled up with water in the intervening years making the workings inaccessible for the most part. Access to the mine is through two inclined portals and a vertical shaft. The site also has structures and buildings still standing. The tailings from this mine are quite large and substantial, and they confirm that the mine was mined using the room-and-pillar mining technique. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines

Ramsey Mining District, just east of Reno, Nevada
 
06:16
This is an introduction to the Ramsey Mining District, located about 30 minutes east of Reno, Nevada. The target minerals here were gold and silver. In the early 1900's this area was characterized (probably more for the promotion of local mining stocks and land investments rather than any titch of reality) as the southern most reach of the mighty Comstock lode. However, the district fizzled out fairly fast.
