The Great American Gem & Gold Rush: "Herkimer" (NY) Quartz 'Diamond' Digging
 
04:34
In the Northeast US, one of the earliest of gem & mineral discoveries since Colonial days, the peculiar quartz crystals of these hard dolomite rock deposits are still very popular world-wide. Gem Miner & Guide Frank Lavoie shows us the "Artisan" small mining/quarrying methods used to 'green' extract, by hand-tools, the valuable collectors' goals, crystals still upon the matrix rock where they formed, and as loose 'diamond' shapes ['double-terminated'] used as-is in jewelry.

Interesting Underground Gold Mine Stuffed With Quartz
 
27:30
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. Was that a grave at the end? What do you guys think that was? ***** 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 see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L 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 colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy 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 century, 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

Great Bear Gold Mining Claims - Arizona - 2017
 
11:26
The Great bear mine is a large and historic gold mining operation, just outside of Quartzsite, Arizona. A series of portals are opened up along a wide quartz body that is heavily concentrated with oxidized iron. Perfect breeding ground for gold. Many of the mine openings connect via trenches. The veins in the mine range from 3 feet to 9 feet as documented by local geologists and the USGS. Old reports note 3 veins that are large and gold bearing. Only the center vein has been worked in earnest. When the mine was shut down by the War Act there was over 30,000 tons of ore (reserves) on the center vein with an average return of 3 OPT in gold. Do your math on that.

Free gold in a deteriorated quartz vein. We take a sample and pan it out to reveal the amazing amount of gold from the vuggy quartz vein. Vein appears to be quartz as well as other brecciated materials. A old creek appears to have run on top of the outcrop and gold and minerals may have leached through bedrock crevices into the vein. Multiple other areas on the outcrop have sulfides and gold and this may be from a different source.

Silver Rock Mine, Castle Creek Dist., Idaho - Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc.
 
07:42
Another great property brought to you by Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. When you are ready to start your mining operation, think of us first! There is very limited information regarding the property. It was reportedly located in or around 1903. Initial silver outcrops turned out to be very limited and the claims were abandoned by 1905. Placer gold was located in 1906 in Castle Creek, placer operations were executed and miners worked up Castle Creek to the source of the gold. According to historical and local oral communication, gold was located in and around the Silver Rock Mine in 1910. An adit portal was driven 1500’ horizontally with a crosscut of 2000’ at 400’. Gold ore was found in oxidized iron and quartz veins. Gold was free-milling and required little processing beyond crushing and shaker tables. For those with a serious interest in the property we offer full technical reports on our properties.

Secret Miner’s Cabin & Mines In The Sierra Nevada - Part 1
 
16:18
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.

QUARTZ VEIN GOLD ORE SPECIMEN ~ FROM GOLD MINE
 
01:31
This specimen was taken out of the Gold Road Mine close to Oatman Arizona. A guy who formally worked there sold me this at his moving / estate sale earlier today. He said the process the gold mine uses is crushing the ore to powder and leeching the gold with cyanide. I'll try to get up a few more specimen videos from the lot of rocks I bought from him today. One is a nice silver ore specimen, another zinc, veszelyite, quartz crystal formation, and a few others. I'll be learning gold prospecting and hopefully will have some time to make a few how to videos, documentary, video clips, etc. Peace, Mark Allen

Old Gold Mine With A Massive Quartz Vein
 
06:07
An old gold mine with a massive quartz vein. A 100 meter adit with nice looking quartz found in a schistose rock. Some sulphides were found. One of our current properties has to be reached by traveling through a portion of this claim which is how we found the mine. The area has mass amounts of mineralization and is in a silitified and pyritized fracture zone 11km long and several kilometers wide in BC, Canada, this zone carries multiple gold, gemstone, mineral and VMS deposits. There are hundreds of heavily mineralized outcrops and multiple large and smaller deposits. Some mined over a hundred years ago, some are new discoveries. Host rock in the area consists schists, granodiorite and quartz feldspar, these host a schist panel which has multiple outcrops with quartz veins with free mill gold along with multiple sulphides over a huge zone.

Gold mining in the Yukon: Gold panning, sluicing, and more.
 
19:15
Take a short trip with me to Dawson City, Canada. Have a look at how the "average, not for TV" miner gets gold. No staged arguments, breakdowns, or deadlines. No scripted drama, or ridiculous million ounce goals. Just average miners trying to make a few bucks and have a little fun doing it. The mining season lasts from May to the first of October, or as soon as the water freezes. Thanks for watching. This is a copy of a previously uploaded video. I was forced to re upload this video due to technical reasons, sorry for any inconvenience.

Highbanker Gold Mining - working old creek bed on Quartz Ridge, some hardpack sitting on bedrock
 
04:56
I went highbanking that day and worked some old creek bed. Lots of rock in the area and got a couple holes in the discharge hose. All I had was some athletic tape, it helped some. I ended up buying a new hose the next day from Home Depot. I bought the first hose from Lowes and the hose from Home Depot seems to be a little more durable.

Blowing Shtuff Up! Visible Gold on Quartz! (Micro Blaster)
 
13:00
Using the Micro Blaster we find visible gold in this quartz seam at the blue chip mine. We have to blast our way in to get any more material as I got all the easy picking stuff from the surface last trip. The gold ore will then be taken back to be crushed and run through the Icon i150 processor to recover the fine gold. This video show some simple hard rock mining equipment for hard rock mining for gold. We have gotten some nive gold on quartz specimens from this gold quartz vein. And Blasting the gold ore, or at least blasting the quartz has helped a lot in finding gold here at the Blue chip Mine. This video is produced by Dan Hurd, Prospector, Miner, Teacher and YouTuber, as part of his YouTube channel based on educational videos about gold mining, gold panning, prospecting, rock hounding, and mineral collecting. https://www.patreon.com/Danhurd

The Modern Gold Rush - Working Popular Creeks
 
18:26
#nosmallcreator #vogus #gold #goldrush Finding gold is a fickle thing, it takes persistence, skill, no small measure of luck and perseverance. Its a rare day when you can step onto the creek right on top of a spot that produces good gold. With the modern gold rush that we're currently in more people than ever are cutting their teeth in creeks across the globe. This leads to whole sale prospecting and soil movment on the most popular gold spots and can make reading and understanding creeks that much more difficult. On this trip I head out with Steve, a career Geologist, to a popular creek to show you some things that can help you identify likely spots, Steve gives us a geology lesson and I try not to loose sight of what's important.

Complete gold recovery processing line for gold ore
 
06:38
We had a customer send us some very high grade gold quartz ore which we recovered 1.310 troy ounces from only 300 lbs! We ran the quartz through our 1/2-1 ton per hour complete turnkey processor comprised of out jaw crusher, hammer mill, and shaker table modules. The system did a good job of crushing and pulverizing the ore, but the shaker table did a remarkable job of recovering lots of gold that was smaller than 325 mesh.
