Dakota Pathways:  Mining Booms and Busts
 
14:19
Dakota Pathways: A History was a 20-part series used by Educator's across South Dakota for use in their classrooms. The 14 minute long segments explore some of the history of South Dakota. 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...

Virginia City Historic Town
 
03:37
Virginia City is a town in Nevada, southeast of Reno. It's home to Victorian buildings built during a 19th-century mining boom. These include the reportedly haunted Washoe Club and stately Piper’s Opera House. Collections at The Way It Was Museum feature mining artifacts and maps. Fourth Ward School Museum has an 1876 classroom and history displays. Silver ore and rock drills are among the exhibits at Chollar Mine. Elevation: 6,148′ Population: 855 (2010) VIRGINIA CITY Roughly 20 miles southeast of Reno lies a little nugget of history in Virginia City, Nevada. Most famous for the Comstock Lode, this historic town was a booming mining establishment for several decades in the mid-1800s. Jump back in time by taking a stroll down the wooden sidewalks, quenching your thirst at one the unique saloons, riding on a steam engine or taking a haunted ghost tour in what was once the most important industrial city between Denver and San Francisco. Virginia City has been attracting visitors to the area with arts and culture for more than 150 years with art centers and museums scattered throughout the area. Historic Piper’s Opera House, located on a hillside overlooking C street, is considered one of the nation’s most famous performance venues and one of the most significant vintage theatres in America. Built in 1885, and still in use, the stage has hosted President Grant, Buffalo Bill, Al Jolson and Mark Twain over the years. Another piece of Virginia City arts history is the Fourth Ward School. Built as a state-of-the-art school in 1876, the Fourth Ward now serves as a museum to commemorate the American West. Permanent exhibits include the Fourth Ward School building with an 1870’s classroom, a historic overview of the Comstock, as well as Virginia City alumni photographs and memorabilia. With more than 15 museums, you may have to visit multiple times to see them all! THINGS TO DO IN VIRGINIA CITY V&T Railroad The Virginia & Truckee Railroad is, by far, the most famous of all American short-line railroads. In its heyday, as many as 45 trains a day arrived and departed Virginia City. President Ulysses S. Grant and dignitaries the world overrode in the ornate coaches of the Virginia & Truckee. Completed in 1869, these trains hauled millions of dollars of gold and silver ore from the rich mines of Virginia City. Take a 35-minute excursion back into the Old West with a journey on the V&T Railroad from Virginia City, through tunnel 4 to Gold Hill, Nevada. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride while taking in the spectacular mountain scenery. Hear the conductor narrate the amazing history of the Comstock while the train chuffs past the famous Comstock Bonanza mine ruins. Virginia City Haunted Locations and Ghost Tours Well known for its rich mining history, Virginia City is self-proclaimed as one of the most haunted towns in America. If you like to dabble in the paranormal or are looking to try something new and a little spooky, Virginia City offers many haunted locations, as well as guided ghost tours. Built in 1876, the Silver Queen Hotel has many reported accounts of paranormal activity by guests over the years. If you choose to brave the night, you may encounter tapping on the walls, loud banging and possibly the sound of footsteps said to be coming from a woman who took her own life in Room 11. Another hotel said to be haunted is located right down the street in front of the old Yellowjacket mine, The Gold Hill Hotel and Miner’s Cabin. Home to two well-known spirits, this hotel draws visitors each year looking to stay in Rosie’s or William’s rooms and have their own encounter with the inhabitants. VIRGINIA CITY HISTORY In 1859, placer miners and prospectors in the western Great Basin made two amazing strikes of gold and silver ore near Virginia City. The Comstock Lode, as people soon called the ore body, resulted in what would today be billions of dollars in riches. Virginia City became a highly urbanized, industrial setting and by the early 1870s, together with its smaller neighbor, Gold Hill, reached a population of nearly 25,000, becoming one of the nation’s larger communities. Mining camps are known to pass through an evolution of boom, dramatic growth and excitement and then decline — Virginia City certainly followed that pattern. By the early 1880s, it was becoming clear that the good times were over. It had been years since miners had discovered any new bonanzas, and thousands of people were leaving for better opportunities. By the Great Depression, Virginia City had declined, shrinking into a town of only several hundred people. Interestingly, the NBC television Western, Bonanza, that ran from 1959 to 1973, brought a declining Virginia City back to life. Due to the enormous popularity of the show, visitors from around the world began to seek out and discover this famous Western city, previously known only through the chronicled, weekly adventures of the Cartwright family.

While efforts and discussions are underway to bring back copper mining to the Upper Peninsula, some are looking further into the local history of the red metal. Many researches spent the past few days exploring the Keweenaw’s past as they revisited the ancient methods of copper working. The Copper Country received it’s nickname during the mining boom of the mid 1800’s and into the 1900’s but carbon dating shows that mining in this area goes back as far as 7,000 years ago. ‘We had the native Americans here and they found this new material and it was just in this area of the upper Great Lakes. Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ontario, Manitoba.’ said, Larry Furo, a coppersmith who shared his expertise with the group in Misery Bay, where they heated raw copper and hammered it into tools and utensils. ‘Awls, knives, spears, fishing gaffs, a lot of decorative items. You name it, they were making it.’ said, Paul Schanen, who is an author on prehistoric copper mining who also guided the activity. ‘There’s some people that sat down here today and with direction from myself and some other experienced smiths, they made some pieces that turned out absolutely fantastic. Better than my first pieces did for sure, but when you’ve got the benefit of having a teacher there helping you along, which the natives would have too, the learning process is a lot smoother that way, versus trying to figure it out on your own.’ said, Schanen. In this modern day replication, the group had the convenience of a propane forge, but in prehistoric days the necessary heat was created using a good old camp fire. Furo also said, ‘They were using fire. The reason we use the forge today is because (it takes a) short amount of time.’ It’s believed by many that metal working started with copper, originating in the Keweenaw Peninsula before spreading to other parts of the world, and eventually evolving into modern day methods that we use today. He added, ‘We still use copper. We coat pots and pans and sometimes we get pure copper pots and things like that, our computers and iPhones and all that now. Copper is one of the most recycled materials there is in the world.’ More information on ancient copper working can be found on the Facebook page: Old Copper Complex and Ancient Waterways. https://www.facebook.com/groups/329350223815305/

Butte, Montana - The Richest Hill on Earth
 
03:55
Wheel Stories travels to Butte, Montana and pays tribute to a unique and fascinating American town. Referred to as “The Richest Hill on Earth”, Butte was one of the largest cities in the Rocky Mountain region during the copper boom of the late 1800s and early 1900s. The population swelled to 100,000 residents as vast mining operations were built and conducted within the town’s business and residential districts. The mines attracted workers from around the globe and miles of tunnels and mine shafts were carved beneath the city. The uptown section thrived with busy hotels, saloons and brothels. In the mid-1950s, Butte transitioned from shaft mining to open pit mining. The immense Berkeley Pit was abandoned in the 1980s and became filled with toxic water, laden with acid and heavy metals. The pit has become one of our biggest federal superfund sites. Today, skeletal headframes dot the Butte landscape and provide a stunning commemoration of the town’s colorful mining heritage. Butte and nearby Anaconda are designated as the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States. The towns feature numerous classic examples of early 20th century architecture. The population of Butte, however, now stands at roughly 34,000 and many buildings sit empty. The silent structures remind me of Edward Hopper paintings in 3 dimensional form. Take note that legendary motorcycle stuntman Evel Knievel was born and raised in Butte. Each July the community celebrates Evel Knievel Days in honor of the famed daredevil.

Perhaps the single most daunting thing about trying to distill the history of the Bay Area into a few blog posts is the sheer volume of stuff out there — first-person accounts, histories, documentaries, websites — detailing the region’s past. A big part of that story, of course, is how quickly a landscape we can scarcely imagine today was remade into the metropolis. Here, we attempt to give a glimpse of that process, from the earliest days of the Gold Rush to this morning’s stop-and-go traffic on the 101.

Living History in Butte: My Favorite Forgotten Montana Boom-Gone-Bust Town
 
05:18
Evel Knieval's childhood playground, Butte Montana is rough and tumble Wild West frontier city through and through. Located in the Silver Bow Creek, the city was put on the map as a mining boomtown in the late 19th century and lays claim to be the “Richest Hill On Earth” thanks to the profitable minerals extracted underground. During its heyday, Butte grew into a thriving city and is now home to the second largest national historic district after New Orleans. On a visit you don’t want to miss an Underground Walking Tour. A highlight stop is the the Roaring 20’s Rookwood Speakeasy in the basement of the former Rockwood Hotel. Inside, a musty smell adrifts and you can imagine the room in its heyday in the 20’s with jazz, flappers and gambling. With such an extensive mining history, a trip to Butte should also include a trip to the World Museum of Mining, which is built on actual mine yard: The Orphan Girl. The tour also lets you peep into a shaft station, used to bring miners up and down to the veins below the city of Butte. Towards the end of the tour, we were all told to turn our headlamps off to see what total darkness looks like, and then with just a small flicker, what it was like with the faint glow of candles workers depended on in the beginning mining era. It should come as no surprise that a town with a rugged individualism mentality like Butte's also has its own distillery making spirits with names tied to Butte’s mining past. At Headframe Sprits, owned by Butte raised John McKee and his wife Courtney, you will find everything from gin and whiskey to vodka and bourbon. Head to the old fashioned bar tasting room to sample the liquor and the cocktails they create from it. The top seller is the Orphan Girl Bourbon Cream Liqueur, which is named for the mine. It’s similar to Bailey’s in taste and is mixed with Root Beer to create my favorite, the Dirty Orphan Girl cocktail.

Goldfield, Arizona Goldfield, Arizona, as the name suggests, was a gold town that thrived in the 1890s, but was abandoned by the late 1920s. Today, Goldfield has been reconstructed as a tourist stop, with a focus on kitsch rather than historical accuracy. Rhyolite, Nevada Rhyolite, Nevada was named for silica-rich volcanic rock in its corner of Death Valley, and saw significant investment from Charles M. Schwab in the early 20th century. By 1907, the town even had its own stock exchange, but its population dwindled in the years afterward. Terlingua, Texas Terlingua, Texas was built up around mercury mining in the mid-1880s, but was abandoned in the 1940s when production dwindled. Today, Terlingua is mostly a tourist destination for visitors to nearby Big Bend National Park. Bodie, California The town of Bodie, California was founded in 1859 and was once California's third-largest city behind San Francisco and Sacramento. The town closed in 1962 after the local gold mine stopped producing and has since become a attraction for tourists. Thurmond, West Virginia During the heyday of coal mining in West Virginia, Thurmond was a prosperous town, but its population dwindled into the single digits by the 2000s. Today, much of Thurmond is owned by the U.S. National Park Service. Calico, California Calico, California was a booming silver-mining town during the 1880s, but was totally abandoned by 1907. Calico underwent extensive restoration in the 1950s under the direction of Walter Knott, of Knott’s Berry Farm fame, and became a tourist attraction for the state. Thistle, Utah The primary industry was servicing steam trains for rail companies, and saw a decline during the switch-over to diesel engines. The real incident that killed the town, however, was a 1983 landslide that flooded the city. Much of it remains submerged today. Virginia City, Montana Virginia City, Montana was founded on gold mining in 1863, but the gold ran out by the end of the century and the town was abandoned. Today Virginia City is owned by the state of Montana, and serves as a tourist stop for travelers headed for Yellowstone National Park. Kennecott, Alaska The copper mine in Alaska produced $200 million worth of copper ore between 1911 and 1938, but was too remote to survive when the mine ran dry in the early 40s. Kennecott became a tourist landmark by the 1980s, and was designated a historic landmark. Written By: Shea Huffman Edited By: Charlie Benavides Image Credit: Getty Images Music: YouTube Music Library

Rocky Mountain Mammoth Mine: Hard Rock Mining Tour
 
00:39
Miners rushed to take advantage of the rich veins of gold discovered throughout the Magnolia Mining District in the late 1800s. However, like many mining sites in the west, the Rocky Mountain Mammoth Mine had a boom-and-bust history. The mine closed and reopened several times between 1875 and 1940. Whether the ore was too difficult to access, too low quality, or in too low of demand, operations at the mine rarely went on for more than a few years at a time. Whatever the reasons for closing, the Rocky Mountain Mammoth Mine has been wonderfully preserved, with few modern developments impacting its historic value.
2015 Christian Crawlers Colorado Adventure Part 11 Ophir Pass

Ophir Pass Alta Lakes: A little bit about the history and the significance of the Ophir Pass area. Ophir and Ames Colorado were once mining boom towns in the 1800's, very similar to many others that were popping up all over the San Juan's. What makes them special is how they were involved with the "War of the Currents". During the same era as the mining boom, electricity was in its early stages of development and was becoming a very popular source of energy to drive industrial machinery like mines and mills. Thomas Edison with his patents and George Westinghouse with patents from Nikola Tesla were bitter rivals with each other in trying to convince people which type of electrical current was better. Thomas Edison was homeschooled after being told he had a learning disability. Thomas supported his DC (Direct Current) products while George Westinghouse was proving his AC (Alternating Current) at the same time. Because of the limitations of DC current being able to carry over long distances, AC (alternating current) was chosen and the world's very first industrial AC power plant was born. This hydroelectric plant was used to power the nearby Gold King Mine and continues to provide electricity to the community to this day. In 1891, electricity was transmitted from the Ames Power Plant on the San Miguel River some distance away. Ophir Pass is a convenient and scenic way to get from Silverton to Telluride. Seasonal wildflowers grow thick at higher elevations. Pass through the ghost town of Alta on the way to great camping, picnicking and fishing in beautiful mountain setting of Alta Lakes. Built in 1891, Ophir Pass was originally a toll road between Silverton and Telluride. The town of Ophir was a supply town for hundreds of mines in the area. Today it is a quaint residential community. Alta was once a bustling mining town serving the Alta-Gold King area from 1877 to 1948 when the mill was destroyed by fire. Carbonero Mine Beginning in about 1885, the Carbonero Mine, which sits above Ophir Pass Road about 1.3 miles northwest of the town of Ophir, began producing silver, gold, copper, lead and zinc. According to a report from the San Miguel Watershed Coalition, it was one of the most productive mines in the Ophir Valley. Production was almost continuous from 1890 to the early 1940's. It was said that its peak production was in the 1920's. It ceased operating in around 1970's.

Craco, Italy - Craco was once a thriving medieval village located in the south of Italy. It sits atop a large rock formation overlooking the gulf of Taranto. The town was once a monastic center, a feudal town, and a center of education with a university, a castle, a church, piazzas, and more. At its peak in 1561, Craco was a large exporter of grain, oil, vegetables, wine, and cotton. Unfortunately, in 1656, a plague struck Craco, reducing the population significantly. The rest of the population was forced to leave the town. Following this, the city never recovered due to its collapsing infrastructure. 9. Kayaköy, Turkey - Originally built in the 1700s in what was Greece at the time, this town was once home to over 20,000 people in the early 20th century. Unfortunately, when World War I hit, the Ottoman Empire collapsed and Greece lost the land to Turkey. The town was a large Greek Orthodox community, and when Turkey took it over the community was forced to flee. Since then, the town has sat abandoned with approximately 350 homes falling apart. 8. Polyana, Abkhazia - Polyana was once a decently sized town with over 40,000 people living inside it. In 1989, the town found itself caught in the middle of war. The war was between Georgian and Abkhazian armies and forced the people to leave. After the war, only a small few came back. 7. Bodie, California - Bodie, California was built in the mid to late 19th century in eastern California. By 1876, the town had flourished into a boom town thanks to the gold rush. This attracted several thousand residents. By the 1880s, the town also became a mining town. In 1910, the population was recorded at 698 people, which were predominantly people families who decided to stay in Bodie instead of moving on to other boom towns. Just a few years later, the town went into full decline and by the 40s the mines were shut down and the town was left abandoned where it has sat today. 6. Centralia, Pennsylvania - Centralia was founded in the late 1700s after colonial settlers bought the land from the Native Americans. Almost 100 years later, in 1856, the first coal mine in Centralia opened. This was followed by four more mines in the area. Little did anyone know, this would be the cause of the town's abandonment. 5. Cahaba, Alabama - Cahaba, Alabama was the first permanent state capital of Alabama from 1820 to 1825. In 1865, the town suffered a massive flood. The town became defunct, and the capital was moved. The town sits abandoned to this day with churches and old government buildings still lining the old unpaved roads. 4. Fortress of Shali, Siwa Oasis, Egypt - The ghost town of Shali lies near Egypt's isolated Siwa Oasis, about 350 miles west of Cairo. The town was built in the 1200s. It was a large fortress which would act as Egypt’s first line of defense from any westward attack. The buildings were made out of a salt and mud mixture that should not have stood the test of time. Amazingly, the structures, while very weathered, still stand today. 3. Pripyat, Ukraine - What's a video about ghost towns without mentioning Pripyat? Pripyat was founded in 1970 as a nuclear city to serve the nearby Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Just 16 years later one of the reactors at the power plant melted down during a test where safety systems were turned off. The reactor exploded and sent radioactive material into the air. The town of Pripyat was completely abandoned in less than 2 days after the disaster. Many people were killed in the following years from radiation-caused diseases, and the town will be completely uninhabitable until at least the year 2200. 2. Varosha, Cyprus - Varosha, Famagusta is an abandoned oceanfront town with a violent past. The city was doing very well until 1974 when the Turkish Army invaded the city. The Greeks engaged them in the streets of Varosha and the 39,000 people who lived there were forced to flee in fear of their lives. 1. Hashima Island, Japan - Hashima Island was just a patch of unsettled land before 1800. When coal was found in 1810, though, miners came to the island in droves. By the early 1900s, multiple mines were created as well as apartment buildings for the miners and their families. At its peak, over 5,000 people were packed onto Hashima Island. By the 1970s, petroleum had replaced coal and the mines on the island began to shut down. In 1974, the last mine shut down and the island was completely abandoned just a few months later.

We Conquered the Odessa Doran Canyon Loop Trail
 
19:33
In this adventure, we head north to the Calico Mountain to tackle the Odessa-Doran Loop Trail. This is a difficult rated trail and one we have been looking forward to tackling. This trail did not disappoint, with it amazing tight canyons, step and narrow rocky obstacles and spectacular desert scenery around every turn. TrailRecon Amazon Shop: https://www.amazon.com/shop/trailrecon TrailRecon T-shirts: https://shop.spreadshirt.com/trailrecon Follow Me: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/trailrecon/ Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/TrailReconFBgroup Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/home Web: https://www.trailrecon.net Special thanks to my trail friends, Q, Dirks, Kassen, Amy and Joe The Odessa-Doran Canyon Loop Trail is located East of Barstow, CA just off the Interstate 15 in the Calico Mountains. The trail entrance is well marked and easy to find and is just east of the Calico Ghost Town. There are over 500 silver mines in this area and you will see many along the trail. This place was booming in the late 1800’s. This trail is rated as difficult and after just a short drive from the trail head you will enter the spectacular narrow canyon section. We quickly began hitting some fun obstacles and this was just a taste of things to come. There were 6 of us in the group today, and while this trail is rated as difficult, most of the jeeps in our group are just lightly modified daily drivers. There are some pretty solid obstacles on this trail, but sometimes it’s the small ones that can get you. You really have to select your tire placement carefully and use your lockers when appropriate along this trail. Are friend got a little high centered, but we quickly whipped out a winch and pulled him off. This section was one of the very few areas on the trail, that actually had a bypass… most of them don’t My buddy Joe was even struggle a little though this area, and he decided to do a little landscaping and move a bunch of boulders around with his Jeep to make it easier… this is a great example of why under armor and strong parts are so important. Unfortunately, he broke off one of his rims center caps in the process. This next section of trail looks very intimidating. You go up a steep rocky climb and you are leaning to the drivers side the whole way up. You have to take your time and go slow as you approach the top where you have to turn because if you are running a 4 door hard top you are going to get within inches of the rock face. First time on the beadlocks This next section is known as Pucker Pass. It may not look like much, but it gets very narrow and there is a steep drop to the drivers side that you start leaning towards. There is one dip on the trail that your rear tire has to sink down into. You really need to get your line perfect here. I let my son drive and put faith in the spotter….. I’m pretty sure I was more nervous that my son! We finally reached the end of the Odessa portion of the trail. This whole loop is only 6 miles long, but it is slow going. The trail opened up to a large mine area and this is where you will begin your decent back down the mountain on the Doran side of the trail. We decided to take a break, eat some lunch and check out some of the mines. What a spectacular day so far! We had tackled ever obstacle we encounter today, but this last section, well we all walk it for a while, talked it through, probably dared each other more than once and decided this section is best left for the hard core rock crawler rigs. We took the bypass on this one and venture off into the caves which was pretty cool. I think this how Jeeps are born?

Primely Located Breckenridge Historic Victorian, Walk to Everything, Luxury at a Value
 
00:24
Historic In Town Mansion Rental Opportunity on Desirable French Street, Breckenridge Residing on French Street allows guests to enjoy the many pleasures of Breckenridge while escaping the congestion and crowding of Main Street. Start your ski day by walking to the lifts or consider the free in-town shuttle which stops close to the home every 15-20 minutes. In the evenings, walk the 1.5 blocks to Main Street and enjoy the fabulous restaurants, lively bar scene, the boutiques and shops and of course, a hot cocoa while window shopping. Or, just stay home and enjoy the view from your in-town hillside perch. French Street received its name due to being an enclave of the French residents who called Breckenridge home during the mining boom of the later 1800s. At present, French Street is one of the most prestigious streets in this charming mining town turned world class resort. From the exterior, this charming historic Victorian is the envy of residents and guests. Boasting 3 stories, the home represents the elite of Breckenridge past and present. Within the newly remodeled home are six (6) bedrooms and three (3) bathrooms sleeping up to 12 guests in luxury and comfort. While the exterior may remind guests of Breckenridges Victorian past, the interior is a mix of Victorian design with 21st century comfort and convenience. The open guest areas are perfect for large families, two families traveling together and groups of friends. The living room with its corner fireplace will be perfect for snowy evenings while the Victorian dining room is perfect for long dinner conversations over multiple bottles of wine. However, we believe guests will naturally gather in the custom granite and stainless-steel kitchen. Lay out breakfast on the eating bar or at night, the pizza and beer within easy reach. All three bedrooms have been custom designed each with a unique color palette respecting the historic design of the home and its location on French Street. Comfortable duvets and hand-carved wood furnishings are on display in each bedroom. The bathrooms, designed with Victorian accents yet the landed gentry who occupied this home in the late 1800s would marvel at the claw foot tubs and luxury vanities. For the workaholic or just the e-mail obsessed, the home offers high-speed wireless internet. However, we suggest, enjoy the soothing waters of the outdoor private hot tub with uninterrupted views of the night sky. Winter or summer very few homes of this caliber of luxury and location are available for vacation rental. Indulge in all Breckenridge has to offer within your own historic in-town mansion. for more information: http://thesociety.com/vacation+rental/23986

History, Tourist Traps, Suicide Tables, Mining, Haunts!! All of it right here in Virginia City, Nevada. As a huge fan of Mark Twain and his book 'Roughing it' I've known a lot about Virginia City and the Comstock years, and always wanted to see the town for myself. This was the place Samuel Clemens first worked as a professional writer under the name "Mark Twain" - and it was also the place where one of the richest mining booms in old west history took place. The comstock is legendary, and it left plenty of legendary attractions above it straddling the side of Mt Davidson in Virginia! This video is the result of our first visit here together, but there should be many more, hopefully when I'm not completely sick! Thanks for watching!

Let's Blast! - Industrial Explosives During Blasting
 
04:55
Are civil and military explosives the same? In other words, are we using the same explosives in mining and warfare? Well, yes and no. From the ninth century AD (though the historians are still uncertain about the exact date of its invention) to the mid-1800’s, black powder was the only explosive available. A single type of explosives was therefore used as a propellant for guns and for blasting purpose in any military, mining and civil engineering application. The Industrial Revolution carried new discoveries in explosives and initiation technologies. A specialization principle, therefore, operates between military and civil application of explosives thanks to new products economics, versatility, strength, precision or capability to be stored for long periods of time without significant deterioration. https://www.thebalance.com The following factors shall be considered to determine the blast area: • Geology or material to be blasted, • Blast pattern, • Burden, depth, diameter, and angle of the holes, • Blasting experience of the mine, • Delay systems, powder factor, and pounds per delay, • Type and amount of explosive material, and • Type and amount of stemming. #blasting #mining #industry #coal

Korumburra Known as the "Heritage Centre of South Gippsland" and more recently as central to Gippsland and Victoria’s mining boom. Korumburra was an important black coal mining center in the late 1800s, but as that industry declined, Korumburra turned to dairying due to its fertile soils and reliable rainfall, allowing cattle to graze on rich, green pastures all year round. Location and Region. The Shire of South Gippsland is a local government area in Victoria, Australia, located in the south-eastern part of the state. It covers an area of 3,305 square kilometres (1,276 sq mi). It includes the towns of Leongatha, Korumburra, Foster, Poowong and Mirboo North. It was formed in 1994 from the amalgamation of the former Shire of South Gippsland with the Shire of Mirboo, parts of the Shire of Korumburra and Shire of Woorayl. There is a forecasted demand for 456 homes in the region over the next 5 years and over 1000 homes required over the next 10 years. • Easy access to the South Gippsland highway • Supermarket • Great local schools • Medical center and hospital • 20 minutes to Inverloch beaches • 50 minutes from Melbourne growth corridor suburbs Pakenham and Clyde / Cranbourne Employment Korumburra maintains strong employment opportunities from Burra Foods whom was recently purchased by one of China’s largest Dairy manufacturers earlier in 2016. Burra Foods operates a large factory in the town, producing a range of dairy ingredients including milk, cream, yoghurt, cheese and also from Select Produce, producing and distributing fresh fruits & vegetables from the area. Neighbouring Leongatha and Wonthaggi also provide significant employment opportunities within 20 minutes drive. Given it is only 50 minutes from the SE growth corridor, opportunity abounds for commuter access to employment whilst living in a more relaxed and affordable lifestyle in a friendly caring community with all services available.

Founded in 1887, the town lies within the Kinta Valley, an area rich with tin reserves. It was a tin mining town which boomed during the height of the tin mining industry. There were many tin mines on the outskirts of Kampar during the height of the mining boom. Most of them were established in the late 19th century, flourished in the 1900s, only to stagnate and decline after World War I, with the exception of an exhilarating boom in the 1920s. Most have closed down following the collapse of the industry, especially in the late 20th century. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kampar,_Perak ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For business inquiries, sponsorship & advertising in my videos: Find me on FB, My Other Channels: 1.Gerryko Malaysia Media Events & Food https://www.youtube.com/user/gerrykomalaysia2 2.Gerryko Malaysia TV Anime & Vlogs https://www.youtube.com/user/gerrykomalaysia3 3.
