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

Gold Mining On The Yuba River
Gold Mining On The Yuba River The Ancient American River, Ancient Yuba River, Ancient Calaveras River, Ancient Mokelumne River, Ancient Tuolumne River, Ancient Magalia Channel, Ancient Intervolcanic Cateract Channel, Ancient Intervolcanic American River and the Ancient Jura River (from the Jurassic Period), are plotted in detail on Big Tens California Gold Map 5. The present-day rivers bearing the same names as their ancient rivers are also shown. The Ancient Rivers of Gold in northern California are from the Tertiary Period. The Tertiary rivers existed millions of years ago and many of them had large quantities of gold within their gravels. Because of that, they are known as the "Ancient Rivers of Gold." Each ancient river is discussed below. Information on this page is based on the classic work of Waldemar Lindgren of the United States Geological Survey and by study of Big Tens California Gold Map 5, which shows the relationship of the ancient rivers to landmarks, such as roads, creeks and towns in the region. These now-dry Tertiary rivers are thought to be a prime source of the gold found in many of the rivers and streams of the Mother Lode region of northern California. The ancient rivers are discontinuous and sometimes follow tortuous routes. They have been altered by volcanic activity, erosion, and in some instances portions of the rivers have been covered by lava. Much of the region underwent extreme volcanic eruptions. Volcanic flows have been found up to 4,000 feet deep. Volcanic flows were up to 60 miles in length. Portions of an ancient river may be found at ground level or near the top of a mountain, or on the side of a mountain, or buried. Early prospectors found portions of the ancient rivers and worked them for their rich gold content. Later, mining companies used hydraulic mining or drift mining techniques to recover the gold. In hydraulic mining, water under pressure is directed to, for example, the side of a ravine to dislodge the gravels and send the material to the sluices where the gold is recovered. The equipment that was used (called a "monitor" or "giant") was similar to a very large hose nozzle. Geologic reports speak of gravel deposits up to 250 feet deep with gold deposits interspersed at various levels within the gravels. Some of the gravels of the ancient rivers of gold have been cemented together over time. Smaller materials between the larger gravels have bound the larger gravels together. Drift mining is used in those instances to follow the channel underneath the volcanic covering. In drift mining, tunnels are driven in bedrock underneath the channels and when the channels are reached, the richest stratum, resting immediately on the bedrock, is extracted by underground mining methods and then washed at the mouth of the tunnel. Many miles of the ancient rivers are still un-worked and may be very rich in gold.

Arizona gold prospecting drone     www.california-gold-rush-miner.us
Arizona gold prospecting drone http://www.california-gold-rush-miner.us/ Whether you call it a drone or a UAV really doesn't matter they are becoming increasingly popular for getting great aerial videos as well as still photos. I'm proud to say, that at least here on YouTube,I I was one of the first to use my drone to check out gold prospecting areas. Today, major gold mining corporations all around the world are using drones to map out and survey their current claims as well as possible future areas that may be worthy of future close inspection. As far as for weekend gold mining, your time out in the field is very precious. So, the use of a drone like this could really save you a lot of time and increase your actual prospecting time. Just thinking about it, I must've seen hundreds of old gold mines high up in the hills that I would really like to inspect close-up, but just didn't feel a hike up in 85+ (many desert areas in the summer can easily hit over 115°) degree temperatures would be worth it. Now in just a couple minutes I could send my drone up there take a look around especially for mine tailing piles that have been undisturbed and decide whether or not it's worth to take our equipment up there. Sure you can find a lot of gold without having a drone! But, the same can be said for going out without a pick or a shovel. the drone is just another tool to save time and increase your production in the field. Plus, and it's a big plus, they're really fun to fly. Be sure to visit our very popular gold-mining blog where you can not only find gold Nuggets for sale but also links to the best buys in sophisticated drones.

Secret Miner’s Cabin & Mines In The Sierra Nevada - Part 1
Probably less than a dozen people know about the historic miner’s cabin hidden away on this mining claim - and even fewer still know about the abundance of gold mines found here… It remains a secret because the people that do know where this is remain tight-lipped about it and this cabin and mines are located in an absolute black hole on topographic and other maps. There is simply nothing marked anywhere near here. With the contractors for the Forest Service, BLM, Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) programs, et al working overtime (with taxpayer money) to get all of these historic mines erased, it is very nice to be introduced to some gold mines that are not (currently) in danger of being permanently closed. It is a shame that we have to wallow in such secrecy simply to protect a historically significant site from the very entities that should be preserving it, but such is the upside down world we live in. The two adits featured in this video appear to be quite old. I was able to find a couple of references to the mines consolidated on this claim in mining journals dating back to the turn of the last century and they were described as already having been worked for a while at that time. So, initial work here probably dates back to around the time of California’s “Gold Rush” era. The earliest gold miners in California were placer miners. However, when the easy pickings from the surface were worked out, they became lode miners and headed underground to start chasing the veins where the gold in the creeks originated from (some underground miners also chased the rich placer left behind by ancient river channels that were buried millions of years ago). The little hole by the creek under the huge boulder would have been referred to as a “coyote hole” by the miners of the time. These were in abundance along the creeks and rivers of California in the early days as the miners pursued gold flakes and nuggets back into the rocks and gravel lining the waterways. So, it seems likely that the small adit we visited first would have been the one developed initially and then the larger adit punching into the hard rock would have come along later. In further support of the idea that these mines are older rather than newer is that, although it may possibly have been there at one point, there was no sign of rail at the mines we visited. The claim owner also stated that he has never seen any sign of rail here either. It is not difficult to imagine a swarm of miners crawling all over these canyon walls like ants during the “Gold Rush” era, churning up the creeks and digging out coyote holes. This initial surge of miners, however, would have been followed by a more patient, more sophisticated group of miners that had an eye on heading underground. At the second adit shown in this video, for example, you could have had something like a father and son team or two brothers slowly working away at that lode mine for years, chasing those quartz veins and hauling load after load of ore and waste rock out in wheelbarrows. I’m giving more of a general feel for the area with these videos rather than showing every single bit of mining history present as both sides of this canyon are covered in mines and the remains of mining equipment. We’ll see more of that in the next video. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

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 colorful niche of our history is gone forever.

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!

California drought spurs mini gold rush in Sierra Nevada foothills
Tim Amavisca and his teenage daughter Hailey are spending some time in the Californian wilderness panning for gold. "The game plan was, move a couple boulders, try to get to bedrock, spend time with the daughter and hopefully find some gold." he explains. "With the drought going on, we're able to dig in more locations that wouldn't be accessible at later times" he says. Leaning over a bed of rocks in waterproof overalls, Amavisca reaches into the river and scoops shovelfuls of dirt into a plastic bucket. He and his daughter then pour the dirt into a sluice box that's used to trap gold flakes on textured rubber mats. Another amateur prospector Rudy Price sources the dry rocks of the Bear River with a shovel and pan, surveying the riverbed for good spots for prospecting. "I do understand that it's a dramatic impact on everybody during a drought that's this severe, but at the same token I'm taking advantage of it," says Price. The drought is bringing in many first-time prospectors to Pioneer Mining Supplies in the Gold Rush-era town of Auburn. The store sells shovels, buckets, pans, rubber boots, maps and mining books, as well as more advanced prospecting equipment such as sluice boxes and gold concentrators. Frank Sullivan, who opened the mining store nearly 40 years ago, says business has increased by 20 to 25 percent because of the drought. "Oh yeah, it's been good for business. I do live in the mountains so I don't like to see the drought. But the rivers being low makes for business being good. A lot of people's having fun. I've seen a lot of new gold coming through the door." Sullivan is concerned about the lack of rain because he lives in the mountains and worries about forest fires. With good jobs in short supply and gold selling for more than $1,300 an ounce, many local residents are prospecting to supplement their incomes Sullivan sold four-foot metal sluice box to amateur prospector Trevor Whitehead and his friend. "It's more of a hobby, but obviously if we hit a nice pocket, then yeah, I would love to make some money," says Whitehead. He says water levels at the North Fork of the American River are about two feet below normal, which has opened up new areas for gold panning. One of the worst droughts in California history has prompted the state and federal governments to severely cut water supplies to farms and cities. It's also left rivers and streams with dangerously low water levels, putting fish and wildlife at risk, as Jeff Kitchen, a hydrologist with the USGS California Water Science Center explains. "The stream flow in many of our rivers is probably about 10 percent or less of what we would normally expect this time of year. So there's a very significant, noticeable drop in what we would normally see." But for now gold diggers are making the most of the unusually warm, dry winter. Amavisca, who recently left the military, has been prospecting several times a week this winter, a season when it's usually raining and river levels are too high for gold panning. "If you see a good-sized flake, that's when you get excited," says Amavisca, who lives in Sacramento, as he looked for gold in one of the sluice box trays. The father daughter team then proudly showed of vial containing flakes of gold, a good day's work prospecting.

Interesting Underground Gold Mine Stuffed With Quartz
This gold mine is one of those abandoned mines that didn’t look like much at first, but ended up being really interesting… Aside from the complexity of the underground workings we explored, we just kept finding stuff. Well, more accurately, I should say that my exploring buddy kept finding stuff. While I was inside the first adit looking around, Mr. McBride, discovered the lower adit and the buildings above the mine workings. Unfortunately, I don’t know anything about the history of this mine. As with many things, California is behind other states in digitizing the records in their archives. By contrast, Nevada is fantastic in this respect. The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology and the University of Nevada in Reno have done a really impressive job of digitizing and organizing their records online. So, for example, if you have the name of a mine, you can look through their database and find extensive records and maps for the mine you’re curious about. Obviously, not every historic mine is included in their database, but most are. Even without knowing the history though, it is apparent that this mine is an older mine that was worked off and on for quite a while. It also doesn’t seem to be a big stretch to assume that a respectable amount of gold was extracted. I’m basing that on the size of the workings and how the miners burrowed off in all directions from that quartz core where the pit was. They even went down and ran another adit in... Actually, as I was typing that, I realized that it may have been the other way around. If you’ll recall, the track in the lower adit was the “budget rail” where the miners nailed the metal strips onto boards to run the ore carts over. Since the track in the first adit I entered was solid metal rail, it would suggest the possibility that the miners may have done well enough in the lower adit to afford to splash out on expensive rail when driving a second adit above. In other words, the lower adit may have been the first adit. The mine buildings just above the underground workings were interesting to us given their age. The main building looked just large enough to accommodate a crew of approximately the size of the number of names on the board where the miners would badge in and badge out. It’s possible a mining crew could have worked this operation in the winter, but given its remote location, fairly poor dirt roads and heavy snowfall in the winter, it seems more likely this was a summer mining operation.

$10 million of gold rush-era coins discovered in California
Subscribe to ITN News: http://bit.ly/1bmWO8h A California couple found a stash of rare gold coins worth more than $10 million (£6 million) as they walked their dog in their garden. The 1,427 gold pieces, dating from 1847 to 1894, were discovered buried in eight metal cans on the couple's property in April last year. The pair are choosing to remain anonymous to stop people descending on their property in the search for more gold, a representative said. Report by Mark Morris.

Mini Gold Rush Has Descended On Northern California
When asking seasoned miners about this year’s so-called gold rush in Northern California, it can be a challenge to obtain trustworthy information. “People who are smart don’t advertise what they’ve found,” said Bob Van Camp, better known as “Digger Bob.” “If you’re finding nuggets in an area, you don’t tell anyone about it; I’ve made that mistake before.” After all, if you’re a professional miner looking to make your fortune, it’s the nuggets you’re after. Flakes and dust are milquetoast – and altogether worthless – compared to heavy chunks of the shiny yellow stuff. Northern California was pelted with record rainfall this winter, and miners predicted that once all the water washed away, gold would be left in its wake. It appears that their predictions are panning out.

How To Find Abandoned Mines
So, you want to know how to find a specific abandoned mine or abandoned mines in general? We will dive into answering that question in this video by taking you along on our search for an abandoned mine that took us two years to locate! Along the way you’ll have the opportunity to observe the tools and techniques we use to find the historic mines that appear in our videos and you will, hopefully, be able to incorporate some of what we have learned over the years (and are now sharing with you) into your own search for mines and mine sites. I will cover how we find out about mines in the first place, the research that we do, the online resources we utilize, the technology we take out in the field with us and more. Whether you are a historian or a gold miner looking for promising sites to file claims on or a mine explorer interested in documenting our industrial heritage or are just curious what is around the area where you live, this video will, hopefully, have something useful for you. Some of you will obviously already know many, if not all, of these search techniques. However, this video is intended to have something for everyone – from the novice to the experienced mine hunter. Many people have no interest at all in finding lost mines, but enjoying seeing them and the efforts of others to find them, and so I have included the footage of the mine when we finally found it for that demographic as well. Fortunately, we don’t normally have to work this hard to find an abandoned mine, but if our search for this mine, although quite unpleasant and frustrating at times, was useful to someone else out there, then it was worth it. Happy hunting! Here are the links for the websites mentioned in this video: https://thediggings.com/ caltopo.com http://www.mylandmatters.org/ http://www.westernmininghistory.com/ https://www.google.com/earth/ https://goldrushexpeditions.com/ ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L If you like these videos on exploring abandoned mines, please subscribe! https://goo.gl/yjPxH1 Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. 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

GOLD FEVER TRAIL - Big Bear Lake to Holcomb Valley - San Bernardino National Forest
GOLD FEVER TRAIL. Saturday February 22nd 2014. Big Bear Lake to Holcomb Valley - San Bernardino National Forest California. Forest Roads 2N09, 3N16, 3N05. We reconnoitered the Gold Fever Trail for a future trip with friends. We find all 12 locations listed on the map. We took about 4-5 hours to complete the trip. We spent a little extra time hiking around, taking photos and videos, and exploring. San Bernardino National Forest. Big Bear Lake California. Holcomb Valley. Go to the Big Bear Discovery Center on the North Shore of Big Bear Lake to pick up a trail guide/map of the Gold Fever Trail. You can find a copy of the guide/map online at: http://www.bigbeargetawayguide.com/PDFs/gold_fever_trail_brochure.pdf Or more information here: http://www.mabb-mortengenealogy.com/gold_fever/pages/holcbhom.htm Information from Big Bear News. KBHR933.com http://kbhr933.com/current-news/gold-thar-hills/ It all started when William F. Holcomb left Indiana to seek his fortune in the mining camps of Northern California. Discouraged by his poor luck there, he drifted southward. While in Los Angeles, he was told a story about a small gold discovery in the San Bernardino Mountains. So it was in 1859 that Bill Holcomb came to these hills. And the rest is history. Gold Fever Trail Nuggets Of History In Holcomb Valley Welcome to the historic gold country of the San Bernardino National Forest. This trail takes you through the now peaceful Holcomb Valley where the saga of early miners is still recorded. The mileage shown at each stop is the distance from the Big Bear Ranger Station. The tour is 10.9 miles in length over a dirt road, and 8.2 miles back to the Ranger Station via State Highway 18. Plan on about three hours to complete the trip. From the Ranger Station go west on Highway 38, drive 1.2 miles and turn right on Polique Canyon Road. 2N09. (Holcomb Valley turnoff.) GOLD FEVER TRAIL -- SIGN POSTS 1. Holcomb View Trail (3.6 miles) Follow the Pacific Crest Trail about 250 feet to the viewpoint. 2. Last Chance Placer (5.2 miles) Drive in 200 feet. 3. Two-Gun Bill's Saloon (6.2 miles) There is a short 280-foot walk to the saloon. 4. Jonathan Tibbetts' Grasshopper Quartz Mill (6.7 miles) 5. Hangman's Tree (6.9 miles) 6. Original Gold Diggings (7.1 miles) 7. Belleville (7.4 miles) 8. Arrastres (7.4 miles) There is a 300-foot walk. 9. Ross' Grave (7.7 miles) There is a 460-foot trail to the grave site. 10. Pigmy Cabin (7.7 miles) The trail to the cabin is 870 feet in length. 11. Metzger Mine (9.3 miles) There is an 800-foot trail to the mine. Updated Information on METZGAR MINE from Youtube User Kyle Z. George and Charles were in the second generation of miners, having come from Illinois in the 70's. They were born in the 40's and died in 1918 and 1921. Charles' second son was born in a little log cabin in 1887 in Saragossa Spring, a spring Charles discovered and named while digging through a mountain. I recently learned about this doing ancestry and discovering that two of my great-great-great grandfather's cousin's mined here, and Metzger Mine is named for them. George A. Metzgar and Charles L. Metzgar. Their last name was spelled with an "ar", and it was called Moonstone Mine. At some point there must have been some remembrance of the last name of its owner and it took the name "Metzger Mine" spelled incorrectly. There seems to never be any mention of them in descriptions of the mine/Holcomb Valley. 12. Gold Mountain Mine aka "Lucky Baldwin Mine"

April 6, 2012. I spent an afternoon in Oatman Arizona on historic route 66 (Oatman Hwy) about 28 miles from Kingman AZ. This town was founded a gold mining community in the very early 1900s. Just recently in 2008, the Gold Road Mine in the area was reopened for business, as gold prices are now quite high, making it profitable once again. It seems the town itself is thriving on tourism alone, most of whole Oatman Arizona downtown area is souvenir shops, antique shoppes, restaurants, etc. If you're through this way, off I-40 at Kingman AZ, you might want to take this trip into Oatman AZ. There's a gunfight (actors) in the street a couple times a day, like 12 noon and 2:15pm, something like that. There's a lot of wild donkeys (borros) that roam about town begging for food. There's one place I went into there in Oatman Arizona that I felt for sure is haunted (among other obvious haunted historic places nearby), a very strong presence there. I didn't include it among the video clips here.

Abandoned: Gold Rush Ghost Town Shop Ruins
This shop was built some time in the height of the Victorian Gold Rush when the town was a thriving metropolis. Now it's a ghost town with no shops, no schools and no post office. This crumbling ruin of the town's golden past sits abandoned, slowly decaying and facing collapse due to neglect. This place was quite sad because it was such an old special building just rotting away. It upsets us to know that in the near future the building will collapse if nothing is done to preserve it. END SONG: The Ragtime Dance by Scott Joplin from 1906 We take only pictures and leave only footprints and break nothing but silence. AND SO SHOULD YOU DON'T BE A FAGBEXER! WARNING: Exploring abandoned buildings is dangerous and most-times ILLEGAL. We do not endorse these activities. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS.
