MOST Mysterious Ghost Towns in the US
From abandoned mining towns with no more gold, to haunted places, here are 10 Mysterious Ghost towns in the US GET TO DYNAMITE TV AND SUBSCRIBE ! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJf35rv_-9uZiXjOi51t3JQ Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. Thurmond West Virginia Once a thriving center of Coal mining in West Virginia, Thurmond was a prosperous place of commerce and businesses along the Ohio Railway. It popped up in the 1880’s in the center of the state and consisted of popular hotels, casinos, banks, schools. It was a fairly well organized city with strict laws on drinking. In 1888 a rail station was built which allowed for tourism in the area and also to carry the coal out of the hills. The population reached a peak of 462 people 1930 but steady downfall would occur not too long after. A popular hotel was burnt to the ground which which had startled much of the population and would finally reach 0 in the year 2000. You can see the contrast between the cities built out in the west and out in the east during this time. There was much more technological advancements and the addition of coal to a city at this period of time would allow them to heat their homes. Surprisingly the city hasn’t received too many vandals and much of it’s past is preserved. 4. Salton Sea Gallons of water were sent gushing into a dry lake bed after a storm caused an irrigation canal to flood and break in the Colorado River. So the Salton Sea is basically lucky to exist in that sense. A resort town was built near this body of water, which became a popular location for boating. Many people once flocked here to soak up the sun, go jet skiing and drive fancy yachts in the booming 50’s and 60’s. Stars like the Beach Boys and Bono would encore this lake, right in the heart of California’s desert. It’s probably now the last place you’d want to go on vacation unless you enjoy putrid odors and some of those boats are left abandoned on this decaying lake.. Not all good things last forever and this place quickly turned into an ecological nightmare due to pesticides and fertilizers from nearby farms and the irrigation system. It’s seen as one of California’s biggest environmental blunders of all time It became much too polluted to sustain life even for fish. The inhabitants quickly fled once the smell of the water became unbearable. To this day, dead fish litter the once popular beaches, leaving a rotten egg like smell that would be enough to scare off any urban explorer and it’s certainly not good for tourism. The size of the lake continues to shrink even in 2017 and the smell of rotting fish will continue to get worse. 3. St Elmo Colorado Don’t forget the rockie mountains also have their fair share of gold as well. And where there was once gold, there are abandoned towns.This places is located in the Sawatch Mountains and features well-preserved wooden buildings from the 1880’s after the gold and silver mines sprung up. The town had a general store, a town hall, 5 hotels, dancing halls and saloons during it’s peak around the 1890’s the resources were mined and not much else was left, the railroad was closed so no one kept on coming here. Some residents seemed to stay until 1952 when the postal service was cut off. If you don’t mind high elevation at 9,961 feet, this might be an enjoyable place to visit and it’s our ghost town with the highest elevation on this list.. It’s also one of Colorado’s maintained ghost towns. 2. Virginia City, Nevada Virginia city grew quickly in the 1850’s and 60’s after the huge discovery of the comstock lode which was a major silver deposit in the sierra nevada mountains,. But once the silver was gone, everyone fled the city. You can actually explore one of our most mysterious ghost towns in the US on google maps. Check out the entire well preserved ghost town of Virginia City, which is also rumored to be one of the most haunted places in the US. Besides some of the modern day vehicles, this place is exactly the way it was over 100 years ago and it’s the most haunted place in Nevada. Some ghost towns are quite as accessible on google maps, and this is one of the more detailed ones we were able to find. Ignore the motorcycles and get a good feel for how historic site would have looked, when miners were sifting the the hills in search of gold. Drop into the Silver Terrace cemetery for a creepy flash from the past!

Ghost towns - Virginia City, Nevada, USA
Virginia City is the best preserved ghost town in the American West. Located in the US state of Nevada, specifically in Storey County, the city of Virginia is a ghost town, although it feels very much alive. Virginia City is not only frozen in time, but this historic city offers one of the best-preserved examples of the numerous mining camps found in the western region of America. Following the gold rush era, Virginia City and nearby cities in Nevada became known as the richest gold strike site found in the Rocky Mountains region. During the first three years of gold mining, it is believed that an estimated $30 million worth of gold was extracted from the mine. By 1870s the population of the city was above 25,000 residents and was known as the richest city in the US, but by 2010 the city of Virginia only had about 855 residents. Currently, the city comprises of over 200 historic buildings preserved for tourists, and it also features several events including the Heritage Days & Victorian Ball held in August. In 1961, Virginia City was designated as a National Historic Landmark, and in 1976, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

City Of Gold Mine, Bodie Ghost Town
City Of Gold Mine, Bodie Ghost Town. Bodie Ghost Town State Historic Park is a genuine California gold-mining ghost town. Visitors can walk down the deserted streets of a town that once had a population of nearly 10,000 people. The town is named for Waterman S. Body (William Bodey), who had discovered small amounts of gold in hills north of Mono Lake. In 1875, a mine cave-in revealed pay dirt, which led to purchase of the mine by the Standard Company in 1877. People flocked to Bodie and transformed it from a town of a few dozen to a boomtown. #BodieGhostTown #GhostTown #goldmine #oldtown #nationalhistory

Westward Expansion: Crash Course US History #24
In which John Green teaches you about the Wild, Wild, West, which as it turns out, wasn't as wild as it seemed in the movies. When we think of the western expansion of the United States in the 19th century, we're conditioned to imagine the loner. The self-reliant, unattached cowpoke roaming the prairie in search of wandering calves, or the half-addled prospector who has broken from reality thanks to the solitude of his single-minded quest for gold dust. While there may be a grain of truth to these classic Hollywood stereotypes, it isn't a very big grain of truth. Many of the pioneers who settled the west were family groups. Many were immigrants. Many were major corporations. The big losers in the westward migration were Native Americans, who were killed or moved onto reservations. Not cool, American pioneers.

Join us for a fun birthday shenanigans at the Knott's Berry Farm sponsored Calico Old Mining Ghost Town in Yermo California located 13 miles east of Barstow in the Mojave Desert in the Calico Mountains. This popular tourist attraction that is a multi colored rocky mountain area produced one of the richest silver strikes in California history back in the 1800s. Back then the population rose to 1,200 people. After three hours of plundering the towns many saloons we paid a quick visit to the Rainbow Basin a natural area that has multi-colored rock formations. I wanted to spend the day doing something different with the birthday girl so I surprised her with this low key relaxing trip out to the desert.

Thirty years later, in 1829, the Georgia Gold Rush in the southern Appalachians occurred. It was followed by the California Gold Rush of 1848–55 in the Sierra Nevada, which captured the popular imagination.

War & Expansion: Crash Course US History #17
In which John Green teaches you about the Mexican-American War in the late 1840s, and the expansion of the United States into the western end of North America. In this episode of Crash Course, US territory finally reaches from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific Ocean. After Oregon was secured from the UK and the southwest was ceded by Mexico, that is. Famous Americans abound in this episode, including James K Polk (Young Hickory, Napoleon of the Stump), Martin Van Buren, Zachary Taylor, and Winfield Scott. You'll also learn about the California Gold Rush of 1848, and California's admission as a state, which necessitated the Compromise of 1850. Once more slavery is a crucial issue. Something is going to have to be done about slavery, I think. Maybe it will come to a head next week.

Virginia City & Nevada City in Montana Virginia city and Nevada city are about a mile apart from each other, along the Alder Gulch in Montana. They are at the site of one of the most valuable deposits of gold that have been located in the Rocky mountains, with an estimated one hundred million dollars worth having been found throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. In the first three years alone, about thirty million dollars worth of gold was recovered, which made the two cities popular places for gold seekers. When the gold ran out, however, people left- and there was only enough wealth to just about keep Virginia City running, with no chance of upgrading the infrastructure. Today, it is still the way it was then. A ghost town, a frozen reminder of the Old West. In a turnaround of fortune, it’s now a popular tourist destination where you can go to experience the thrill of the gold rush, albeit without any gold, for yourself. 9. Bodie, California The Californian gold rush between 1877 and 1888 spawned its own series of towns full of gold seekers, with one of the largest being Bodie, in the eastern Sierra. In its heyday the town was home to more than 10,000 people; all reliant on the nearby treasures of which more than thirty five million dollars worth of gold and silver were found. Of course, as happened with many places like this, when the gold became scarce the people began to move in search elsewhere. This soon left Bodie as an abandoned town, one that has been kept in a state of “arrested decay” for visitors to explore. The 170 wooden buildings haven’t been touched since they were abandoned, with bottles and desks still sat where they were left in the schoolhouse, saloon, church and barbershop. 8. Kennecott, Alaska In 1900, copper had become a valuable commodity for the use in wiring as electricity became popular. Two prospectors found an area with the richest concentration of copper that had ever been found; the only problem being it was on a glacier in Alaska. Wealthy investors were brought in who provided the machinery and a railroad track and built a town called Kennecott. All they needed to do was hire a workforce, which they had to offer far higher salaries to, to make the job appealing. By 1938, however, the mines had run dry. They were shut, along with the railroad, and Kennecott soon became a ghost town. It was later sold into private ownership, and then purchased by the park service in 1998, who have turned it into a National Historic landmark, and one of the most popular destinations in Alaska. 7. South Pass City, Wyoming As a small gold rush town, South Pass city may seem no different to the others, but it was the site of two important historic events while the gold seekers were in town. The city was founded in 1867 after Mormon prospectors found gold in the nearby Wind River mountains. Within a year more than 250 buildings had been built, with over 1,000 residents moving in. The half mile long main street featured hotels, restaurants, a bowling alley and dozens of saloons, but the success wasn’t to last long. After growing to around 3,000 inhabitants in 1868, the numbers began to dwindle by 1869 due to the small quantity of gold being found, and by 1872 there were only a few hundred people left. During this successful time for the city, it also became the first place, in 1869, to introduce a women’s suffrage bill, which led to Wyoming being the first state where women could vote. Soon after that, Esther Hobart, a resident of the city, became the first woman in the country to hold a position in public office when she was appointed as the justice of the peace. Despite all of this, South Pass city would eventually become a ghost town, with the last few people leaving for good in 1949. In 1966 it was bought from private landowners by the state of Wyoming as a present to its residents, and now is run as a tourist attraction.

Mining Booms and Busts is the 6th segment produced in the series. I was walking down the sidewalk the other day when I came across a little boy digging in the lawn beside me. I asked the little boy what he was digging for, and he replied to me that he was searching for treasure. Mining in the Black HillsI asked him if he had ever heard the saying, "if you dig deep enough into the earth, you will end up in China"? That would be a lot of digging, considering it would mean that you would have to dig all the way through the earth and come out on the other side. This got me thinking. What I would like to know is what do you find when you dig deep into the earth's surface? Do you find different things in different locations? If I dig in South Dakota and Florida, will I find the same things buried below our feet? Even if we wanted to find out what was beneath us, how would we do it? Do you think that there are machines big enough to do the job? If we dug everywhere we thought there might be something valuable, don't you think we would be surrounded by holes? What about in the past when people dug, what happened to all of those places? These are just a few questions that came racing through my mind as I watched the little boy dig for his treasure. I continued on my way down the sidewalk, and later, this is what I found out...

Historic Gold Dredge - Gold Creek, Montana MT
This historic gold dredge is a California-type bucket line dredge. It was operated by the Pioneer Dredge Company from 1933 to 1941. In its eight year operation it produced almost 40,000 ounces of gold. It is significant since it is in fair condition and it is one of the few dredges left in Montana. The dredge is sitting in its dredge pond and is mostly intact, complete with the bucket boom in front and the tailing boom in the rear. The pin that the dredge pivots on can still be seen attached to the back of the rig. The dredge is 30 x 65 feet and is 30 feet tall. It is located on private land so please respect the property owner rights and this fragile piece of Montana mining history. Please comment if you know the name of this dredge or other details.

Across America’s Old West are deteriorating ghost towns filled with reports of the paranormal, spirits of the dead that still roam the empty streets and saloons leftover from a time of lawlessness and violence. “Ghosts in Ghosts Towns” explores the eerie remains of the mining boom, the stories of the people that lived there, and the subsequent spirits that still haunt the towns of the Wild West.
AY14: Abandoned Feliciana Mine
I used my Halloween to explore an abandoned mine near Midpines California, an area known as the Mother Lode for the density of old mines and prospects. The Feliciana Mine dates back to the mid 1850's. According to Minedat.org, the mineral list includes Chalcopyrite, Galina, Gold, Graphite, Pyrite, and Quartz. It was discovered in the 1850's by Mexicans and mined until the 1860's before laws were passed that forced out non Anglo's. First mined by Louis Francisco until leased by J. Dolan in 1871 who built a 10 stamp mill by 1875 and dug a 300 foot tunnel and 300 foot shaft. It was sold in 1896 to E. S. Davis. Sold in 1914 to J. B. Campbell. By 1920 the mine was idle. M. Farber formed the Feliciana Mine Co. in 1925 but only 5 years later it was idle again. In 1931 it was bought by the Gold Ledge Co. who dug 1,186 feet more. In 1941 it was leased to Russell Wilson and closed a year later in 1942 by orders of the War Production Board and has been idle since. From the 1920's to 1942, $159,500 in gold and silver plus small amounts of copper and lead were extracted. Some recent explorers discovered that the tunnel has collapsed about 200 yards in. There are reports of adits lower down that have been collapsed and an additional mine, the Buffalo Gulch mine further down the hill that attempted to exploit the same seam but which is on private property. Access is by the Ponderosa Way and Feliciana Mountain Road off route 140 and is somewhat easy if you have a truck with good clearance to handle the washed out parts and rocks. The trail that goes to the mine from Feliciana Mountain Rd should only be attempted by 4x4 trucks due to the condition of the "road" and steepness.

GSPG Property  in Gold Canyon, NEVADA
GoldSpring Announces Its First Gold and Silver Mineral Reserve, Estimated at $604 MillionFont Scale: 15 May 2009 @ 11:57 am ET http://www.ibtimes.com/mining/prarticles/20090515/nv-gspg-announces.htm GOLD HILL, Nev., May 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GoldSpring, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GSPG) today is pleased to announce the results of a Mineral Reserve Declaration Report, compiled in accordance with the Society of Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME) 2007 Mineral reserve reporting guidelines. The mineral reserve, an estimate of the economically mineable tonnage in the Hartford / Lucerne Complex, includes 20.3 million tons of ore, with 564,000 recoverable ounces of gold, and 5.85 million recoverable ounces of silver, with a gross value of $604 million at current prices. The Report also quantified mineral resources of 30 million additional tons, containing 870,000 ounces of gold and 12.9 million ounces of silver. The Mineral Reserve Declaration Report is the result of eight additional months of drilling, interpretation, and analysis since the Company published its September 2008 Resource Report. Jim Golden, GoldSpring's Chief Operating Officer, stated: "This report is the culmination of a tremendous amount of work by our team, including drilling, detailed geological mapping, metallurgical testing, cost-estimating, mine modeling, and permitting. We now have confidence in the continuity of the mineralization and the economics of the deposit, and can move forward with the detailed mine-planning to reopen the mine." The mineral reserve was estimated from GoldSpring's drilling program that was conducted from December 2007 to February 2009 and consisted of 182 development drill holes combined with 458 drill holes from past drill campaigns. GoldSpring's Chief Geologist, Larry Martin commented: "The new drilling has greatly increased our geological knowledge, and understanding of the structural and mineralization controls. As a result, we have identified 36 new exploration targets for the next round of drilling." This is especially significant since the Hartford / Lucerne mineral reserve occupies only 81 acres, less than 2% of the Company's land holdings in the Comstock District. (Contained within those land holdings are 166 acres, including 14 acres in the mineral reserve area, under LOI with one of the Company's largest creditors.) The mineral reserve modeling was performed by Michael Norred, President of Techbase International, Morrison, Colorado. Mr. Norred said: "This has been a great project, and I'm glad to have played a part in its success." Rob Faber, GoldSpring's Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are very pleased with the mineral reserves shown in the report. This initial valuation of our Hartford / Lucerne mineral reserve should serve as a catalyst for securing favorable financing for advancing the project through land acquisitions, additional drilling, and the capital expenditures for mine and mill equipment."

Baia Borsa, Forgotten Gold Mines and Lost Trails of the Toroiaga Mountain 2018
BAIA BORSA # THE PLACE HAUNTED BY THE GHOSTS OF THE COMMUNIST PAST At the foot of the Toroiaga mountain , the highest mountain in Maramures Mountains Natural Park is siting Baia Borsa. Not so long ago Baia Borsa or Baile Borsa was an important place on the map of the Romanian mining industry. After the political class played the funeral song of the North Romania`s mining industry a long and heavy silence fell over the place. In the years of Socialist Glory, Baia Borsa mines were providing to the national economy half of the total production of non-ferrous crude metals from ore. The mining activities were generally carried out by 7 000 workers, to add the auxiliary personnel, it means that at the moment the Town provided over 10 000 workplaces. People were working non stop in rotating shifts. Day by day about 50 worker buses were bringing and carrying people from all over the place, Valea Izei, Valea Viseului till Sigetu Marmatiei. There were working places even for people from vicinity counties like Bistrita Nasaud and Suceava. Baia Borsa`s mountains are containing besides complex ore of zinc, copper, lead etc., a vein of gold as well. This can be found, according to local sources, in the Toroiaga Mountain (1929,9 m), the highest peak in Maramuresului Mountains [Muntii Maramuresului]. Here, in the communist era 20.000 tones of gold ore were exploited monthly, which was transformed after processing in 70 kilograms of pure gold. At least this was the Monthly Treasury Statement of the Communist leaders from that time. Some people claim that the mountain was bought by a reach Irish businessman, others: that a local Romanian businessman owns the place. But, at the moment nobody really knows the truth, nobody gave a sign that there is any intention of reopening the mines, or to make a Tourism Investment of some sort. ~THANKS FOR WATCHING!~ :) ROMANA: La poalele celui mai inalt varf din Muntii Maramuresului se afla Baia Borsa sau Baile Borsei. Pana nu demult, acest loc era un punct important in industria miniera din tara noastra. Dupa ce politicienii au terminat minieritul maramuresan inchizand toate minele chiar si cele productive peste Baia Borsa s-a asezat o tacere de mormant. In anii gloriei comuniste minele din Baia Borsa ofereau economiei nationale aproape jumatate din productia totala de minereau neferos.. La mine lucrau peste 7.000 de oameni, la care se poate adauga personalul auxiliar, cei care lucrau in diverse servicii asta insemnand ca Baia Borsa detinea la vremea respectiva peste 10.000 de locuri de munca. Se lucra aproape non-stop, in trei schimburi. Zilnic foarte multe autobuze aduceau si duceau muncitori de pe toata Valea Izei, pana la Sighetu Marmatiei, Valea Viseului si din alte cotloane ale Maramuresului. Mai mult decat atat, industria miniera din zona asigura un loc de munca si pentru oamenii din judetele invecinate: Bistrita-Nasaud si Suceava. Unii din borsenii care au trait acele vremuri marturisesc ca nici macar nu le-a trecut prin cap faptul ca intr-o buna zi toata industria miniera din zona va disparea si odata cu ea bunastarea si siguranta zilei de maine. Baia Borsa detine pe langa minereul complex de zinc, cupru, plumb etc., si un filon de aur. Acesta se afla, dupa cum povestesc oamenii, in masivul Toroiaga (1930 m), fiind cel mai inalt varf din Muntii Maramuresului. Aici, pe vremea comunismului, se exploatau lunar aproximativ 20.000 tone de minereu aurifer, care se transforma dupa prelucrare in 70 kilograme de aur, care intrau in visteria tarii. Cel putin asa se publica la nivel oficial si in rapoartele Republicii Socialiste Romania. Unii localnici sustin ca muntele afost cumparat, dupa caderea regimului comunist, de catre un irlandez foarte bogat care detine o companie miniera in Europa altii ca ar fi in proprietatea unui om de afaceri originar din zona. Dar pana in prezent nici reprezentanti ai unor companii private nici statul roman nu au dat vreun indiciu ca ar dori sa redeschida minele sau sa faca vreo investitie, in domeniul turismului din aceasta zona atat de frumoasa si deosebita. ~ Multumesc pentru vizionare!~ Music was provided by epidemic sound: ES_The Mystic Dream - Andreas Ericson ES_Heroes - Marc Torch ES_Fugitive Drone - Amir Sharifi ES_Epic Orchestral Adventure 3 - Gavin Luke https://www.epidemicsound.com/

The Vanderbilt and Western Tunnel's and the Carson & Colorado Railroad grade, Candelaria, Nevada
Candelaria was the first big mining boom town the railroad was headed for. By the time the railroad reached there in 1882, the boom was on its downward side. To get to Candelaria the railroad built a branch line that included two large trestles.
Frozen in time: the historic Idaho-Maryland Gold Mine is ready to be explored at depth
In this interview, Ben Mossman, President, CEO, & Director of Rise Gold Corp, speaks with Natasha Frakes about how the company is preparing to start the first exploration project at the Idaho-Maryland Gold Mine since the 1950s. He explains how significant production never occurred on the property after the 1950s, but that it has a lot of opportunity to grow since it is located in a major gold district. It is also adjacent to the Empire mine, which produced around 6 million ounces of gold. The mine resides on private land, and the USGS was not allowed to survey in the 1940s — any record of geologic or exploration information has never been released. Rise only recently attained the historical documents related to the property. They have digitized the historical documents, and the exploration potential looks promising. Lastly, Ben mentions how the company is now in a unique position to re-develop the mine since the private land on which it sits does not requires exploration drilling permits, allowing for work to begin sooner rather than later.
