The Big Eye Mine and its cabin remain a very popular hiking and jeeping destination in the far reaches of the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge and its Castle Dome Mountains in Yuma County, Arizona. This particular video of my documentation and exploration of Arizona's Big Eye Mine was originally filmed and posted in August of 2012. I am re-posting the same video again after making some minor edits for continuity and running time. This video highlights the well-maintained cabin, the many various artifacts in it, and provides some history behind the mine. I also explore and document the main Big Eye Mine tunnel as well as an upper level higher on the mountain. Enjoy this fascinating glimpse back into our mining history!

Copper Mine Tour, ASARCO Mineral Discovery Center Tucson
 
03:26
Copper mine tour at the ASARCO Mission Mine and Mineral Discovery Center in Pima county Arizona.The mission mine is an open pit copper mine 18 miles south of Tucson Az. That produces both copper and silver. It is 2.5 by 1.5 miles long and 1,200 feet deep. The discovery Center is a both an indoor and outdoor mining museum that also offers tours of the mine and the copper mill. The mill grinds the copper ore into a powder and then the copper is separated from the ore by a froth flotation process. The large spinning drums in the mill are ball mills. The ore feeds into the drums and is spun with 3 inch steel balls that are lifted by the rotating walls and then dropped onto the ore.

ABANDONED Places in Arizona - Master Planned Community
 
08:10
We visited an abandoned master planned community in Arizona, this place has been abandoned since the housing crisis of 2008. The Mohave County APPROVED the Silverado Ranch Master Planned Community in 2006. The developers had purchased 4,800 acres of land outside Kingman, AZ. They immediately began to grade, and build the models along with 15 homes. The community had plans for more than 12,000 homes, an 18-hole golf course, with more than 1,600 acres of commercial development & schools. The project was scratched in 2008 due to the U.S Housing crash, soon after plans for a 1 Billion dollar solar plant was approved by the county. Unfortunately, the developer never filed an application with the Arizona Corporate Commission, and the plant was never built. MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WASTED!!!

Desert Gold Mines: Exploring the Ten-Mile Tunnel
 
05:27
The Ten-Mile Tunnel is an abandoned Arizona gold mine dating back to the late 1800s. Deep in the mine, I found an inclined shaft going both downward and upward. Later research on this particular mine revealed that this inclined shaft is approximately 1100 feet long. That warrants a return visit with more people so we can descend the inclined shaft to the lower levels and see what's down there. We've only just cracked the surface on this particular mine! Stay tuned!
OATMAN ARIZONA ~ OLD MINING GHOST TOWN [HD]
 
02:45
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.
All About History - The Ghost Town of Two Guns, Arizona

The Town of Two Guns has a history straight out of an Old Western. Just south of Canyon Diablo and built right on top of the Apache Death Cave, some believe the land the town was built on is cursed. Among the lies, murder, and thievery, somehow the town of Two Guns sprouted, but after many years, the Arizona town eventually met its demise.

Spent part of the day exploring the Green Quartz Mine site near the town of Oatman, AZ. It was my first time in this territory, so part of the trip was used to scout future mines to explore. The Green Quartz Mine dates back to the early 1900s. The site has many vertical shafts of varying depth as well as one small tunnel. Nearby is the old mining town of Oatman that I briefly explored by driving down its main street. Oatman definitely is a classic American, old-west town that still retains its historical roots. Oatman is definitely a must-see if you're in the area!

Ghost Town Exploration Swansea Arizona
 
02:55
Exploring the Ghost Town of Swansea in Arizona http://www.totally-trailer.com Email [email protected] Facebook: www.facebook.com/totallytrailer ********************************** On a long dirt road, just 30 miles outside of Parker, Arizona (in literally the middle of nowhere) sits an old copper mining town. Archaeological and historical sites litter this once bustling boomtown and the Bureau of Land Management has done an excellent job restoring and protecting this massive and extinct townsite. It’s no surprise that we were once again lured to an abandoned mining area full of mine shafts, artifacts and the residual smell of history and danger. Swansea Townsite was a copper mining town that was settled around 1909. It’s one of the largest ghost towns we have visited so far. At the town’s peak (of about 750 residents), it boasted everything from a car dealership, a moving picture theater, lumber yard and an electric light company (in addition to the normal saloons, barbershops, cemeteries and restaurants). What a cutting edge town, to have their very own electric light company! As you walk the dusty “streets” of Swansea, it’s difficult to imagine a car dealership out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by open mine shafts. What a journey this copper went on after being mined from the earth. It took a train ride along the Colorado River and ended up on a boat down the Gulf Coast, around Cape Horn to Swansea, Wales (hence the namesake)! That’s over 4,900 miles……. The townsite sits surrounded by large mountain ranges in every direction. It’s even a steep, curvy and hairy drive into the townsite (so we don’t recommend going when it’s been raining, or with a trailer or large RV). Once nestled into the town, you can’t help but feel safe and thousands of miles away from anyone and anything. At the entrance to the town, BLM has a kiosk with flyers, maps, historical photos and information as well as pit toilets. We could have spent days wandering and exploring the historical gems hidden within Swansea, and particularly appreciated the massive mine shafts, finding portions of the old railroad and the ramshackled brick buildings from long ago. The old copper mining town still has evidence of the massive copper smelter and dust chamber, which was a rather large and impressive brick building. Due to recent toppling walls and bricks, the building has been fenced off, but you can’t miss the undeniable presence this building had in the town. The mine shafts are all covered for safety purposes. These heavy duty safety measures allow you to walk over and around the shafts safely, while eerily peering down these deep black holes. There is an interpretive trail, hiking trails, picnic spots and ATV trails in the area. The interpretive trail takes you through the worker’s cottages, general office, company store, company residences, railroad depot, manager’s house, copper smelter and dust chamber, the hospital and school site along with rusted old cars and magnificent views. Just like all the ghost towns we have visited, Swansea fell victim to the Great Depression and the last milling was reported in 1944. Today, Swansea gives us glimpse back to our past as well as a reminder at how wild the west really was. Although there are a handful of small campsites in Swansea, Totally Trailer does not recommend any large RV's or trailers due to the hairy roads getting into the townsite. The campgrounds at Swansea are perfect for small vans or tent camping only. It's a fun day trip and beautiful drive in from Parker, AZ. We recommend parking your RV or camper in nearby Parker.

In the late 1800s, traveling preacher Robert Sheffey cursed the town of Ivanhoe, Virginia, after witnessing what one female resident describes as “houses of ill repute, fighting, drunkenness, and a rejection of his ministry by the townspeople.” Legend has it that Sheffey condemned the sinful town to sink into the earth and be consumed by the pits of hell. “Whether you believe in it or not, after that happened, we lost everything,” says the same Ivanhoe resident in this short documentary. “We have nothing.” Today, Ivanhoe is even plagued by sinkholes—multiple houses have disappeared entirely into the earth.

American Southwest (#27): Arizona Ghost Towns
 
16:31
Oatman ... elevation of 2,700 ft., once a metropolis of some 10,000 people, Oatman was reduced in the 1950s to a population of about 60 after it was bypassed by the rerouted U.S. 66. Now the number is up to a few hundred, with many residents making living selling items to tourists. They are hardy bunches who look upon visitors with a hit of a defiant eye, knowing their dollars are necessary for their livelihood, but wishing they weren't. Towering above the town of Oatman is a monolith known as Elephant's Tooth, a huge quartz outcropping that served as a signpost to prospectors, saying "look for gold right here." The original name of the town was Vivian, for the Vivian Mine discovered in 1902 by a half-breed Mohave named Ben Taddock (or Paddock, depending upon the source), who supposedly found gold glittering along a trail. Taddock sold his claim a year later to a judge and a colonel, who in turn sold it in 1905 to the Vivian Mining Company, which fully developed the claim. By 1907, more than $3 million in gold had been extracted from the mine. Vivian experienced a second boom in 1908 with the discovery of the Tom Reed Gold Mine. That year the town was renamed Oatman, a change the post office made official a year later. The new name honored Olive Oatman, a white girl who lived with a local Mohave Indian family for five years. Her safe return made the Oarman family's story famous throughout the West. Chloride ... was one of the earliest mining camps in the Arizona Territory. Named for silver chloride ore, the town grew from the Silver Hill strike of the 1860s. Reaching the isolated Silver Hill mines required taking a river steamboat 300 miles upstream from Yuma to Hardyville (now underwater near Bullhead City), and then crossing 38 miles of unforgiving desert. It could be dangerous territory. In 1863, Hualapai Indians commandeered some miners' guns, shooting one and killing two more by throwing rocks down their mine shaft. Undaunted by word of these occupational hazards, fortune seekers continued to come. Chloride became a full-fledged town in 1864 and received its post office nine years later. By 1900, the town had a population of 2,000. Its two major mines, the Tennessee and the Schuylkill, produced gold, silver, lead, and zinc on a major scale into the late 1940s. When the mines closed, the population declined, but the post office remained. Chloride has since seen a modest influx of people, primarily retirees, raising its population to about 350. The town's main street features the post office and well-preserved false-front general store, which was built during 1928. North of the main street stand two original buildings, the jail and the Lorig residence. The mines are closed to the public. Mineral Park ... founded in 1871, was so named because of the rich cache of minerals in a parklike, juniper-filled basin at the foot of Ithaca Peak. It became the county seat in 1873, raking the title from nearby Cerbat. By the early 1880s Mineral Park not only featured paying mines but also served as a supply point for distant mines and a growing number of cattle ranches. It had all the usual mining camp ingredients: assay offices, a five-stamp mill, saloons, stores, and a post office. But it also had the trappings of a sophisticated town: restaurants, a hotel, doctors and lawyers, two stagecoach stations, and a weekly news¬paper, The Mohave County Miner. One reason prosperity shone so brightly was the completion in 1883 of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad just 20 miles to the south, which cut the cost of transporting ore and supplies. That same railroad, however, brought civic embarrassment to Mineral Park. The rail-stop town of Kingman grew so much faster than Mineral Park that by 1887 it had enough residents to claim the county seat. Despite a conclusive county-wide vote on the matter, Mineral Park officials refused to give up the county records. Outraged Kingman citizens subsequently raided Mineral Park, made off with the documents and, quite literally, took the county seat.

Coronado National Forest, Arizona - Gold Prospecting Trip Gone Bad
 
10:52
In this video we were not prepared for what we found. Instead of a dry arid desert, we encountered a lush mountainside forest. Not expecting water, we only had metal detectors. In terms of success in prospecting, this trip was a bust but I figured some people out there may want to see video of the region...so I decided to throw a quick video together. We did have other purposes in the area (Tucson Gem and Mineral Show video to come!) So the trip was not a bust. Visit our website at www.HighPlainsProspectors.com for awesome gold prospecting and metal detecting gear. We were in Coronado National Forest near Sonoita (South of Tucson) in there Greaterville area of Arizona. We were looking for the Gold Prospectors Association of America's Lucky Strike Claim but had a hard time finding it. So, we just hit the trails hiking and swinging the sticks. Metal detecting and prospecting activities that do not significantly disturb the soil are permitted without a Plan of Operation (POO) with the Forest Service. So, we just went on public ground...which led to a lot of modern trash and bullets. More than anything this video shows people what to expect if they go to this area to prospect. There was water (a lot) in February of this year so I wish I would have been prepared for that. Next time I will have the tools I need to prospect effectively. Additionally I had a chance to get out and talk to the local prospectors and got some REALLY good information on where to find good chunky gold (that pays dividends).

Sayer Springs, Arizona Ghost Town
 
06:59
Sayer Springs was a small community with a store that served the miners and other folk living up Constellation Road near Wickenburg, AZ. This spot has a very unique water supply that is still being used today by local ranchers. This is a very neat spot so join us for a short exploration of the ghost town of Sayers Spring.

JEROME ARIZONA GHOST TOWN 1960s SILENT TRAVEL FILM 46774
 
17:12
This well-made silent film, apparently made by Ken Mershon, shows Jerome, Arizona and the surrounding area as it appeared in the late 1960s or early 1970s when it was still considered a ghost town. Jerome is a town in the Black Hills of Yavapai County in the U.S. state of Arizona. Founded in the late 19th century on Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley, it is more than 5,000 feet (1,500 m) above sea level. It is about 100 miles (160 km) north of Phoenix along State Route 89A between Sedona and Prescott. Supported in its heyday by rich copper mines, it was home to more than 10,000 people in the 1920s. As of the 2010 census, its population was 444. The town owes its existence mainly to two ore bodies that formed about 1.75 billion years ago along a ring fault in the caldera of an undersea volcano. Tectonic plate movements, plate collisions, uplift, deposition, erosion, and other geologic processes eventually exposed the tip of one of the ore bodies and pushed the other close to the surface, both near Jerome. In the late 19th century, the United Verde Mine, developed by William A. Clark, extracted ore bearing copper, gold, silver, and other metals from the larger of the two. The United Verde Extension (UVX) Mine, owned by James Douglas, Jr., depended on the other huge deposit. In total, the copper deposits discovered in the vicinity of Jerome were among the richest ever found. Jerome made news in 1917, when strikes involving the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) led to the expulsion at gunpoint of about 60 IWW members, who were loaded on a cattle car and shipped west. Production at the mines, always subject to fluctuations, boomed during World War I, fell thereafter, rose again, then fell again during and after the Great Depression. As the ore deposits ran out, the mines closed, and the population dwindled to fewer than 100 by the mid-1950s. Efforts to save the town from oblivion succeeded when residents turned to tourism and retail sales. Jerome became a National Historic Landmark in 1967. By the early 21st century, Jerome had art galleries, coffee houses, restaurants, a state park, and a local museum devoted to mining history.
