Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. This was a major national center of lead and zinc mining at the heart of the Tri-State Mining District. More than a century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic metal-contaminated mine tailings (known as chat) heaped throughout the area. The discovery of the cave-in risks, groundwater contamination, and health effects associated with the chat piles and subsurface shafts resulted in the site being included in 1980 in the Tar Creek Superfund Site by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The state collaborated on mitigation and remediation measures, but a 1996 study found that 34% of the children in Picher suffered from lead poisoning due to these environmental effects, which could result in lifelong neurological problems. Eventually the EPA and the state of Oklahoma agreed to a mandatory evacuation and buyout of the entire township. The similarly contaminated satellite towns of Treece, Kansas and Cardin, Oklahoma were included in the Tar Creek Superfund site. A 2006 Army Corps of Engineers study showed 86% of Picher's buildings (including the town school) were badly undermined and subject to collapse at any time. The destruction of 150 homes by an EF4 tornado in May 2008 accelerated the exodus. On September 1, 2009, the state of Oklahoma officially dis-incorporated the city of Picher, which ceased official operations on that day. The population plummeted from 1,640 at the 2000 census to 20 at the 2010 census. As of January 2011, only six homes and one business remain, their owners having refused to leave at any price. Except for some historic structures, the rest of the town's buildings were scheduled to be demolished by the end of the year. One of the last buildings, which had housed the former Picher mining museum was destroyed by arson in April 2015. Fortunately, its historical archives and artifacts had previously been shipped elsewhere. Picher is among a small number of locations in the world (such as Gilman, Colorado, Centralia, Pennsylvania, and Wittenoom, Western Australia) to be evacuated and declared uninhabitable due to environmental and health damage caused by the mines the town once serviced.

Small South Dakota mining town hidden in the woods. No roads lead to it. No access other than trails and horseback. The small mining town founded in the 1890s. It was almost completely abandoned in 1940 due to the mine closing. The abandoned school house was by far my favorite however, going down into the basement of the 2nd house was way creepier. I love old abandoned towns and South Dakota is filled with some great ones. A truly amazing state.

**PLEASE NOTE** Nelson Ghost Town is its official name. It was abandoned for some time before being purchased by the present owners. Now it's used for movie and photo shoots. It is a tourist attraction, but it's the least commercialized as the others. The others I saw were completely rebuilt back to original state as well as roped off like a museum. This was the least touched out of them all, as stated in my narration in the beginning of the video. Exploring this place was a real pleasure. This ghost town is in South Nevada in Nelson, El Dorado Canyon. It was first named "El Dorado" by the Spaniards when they first discovered it in 1775. This ghost town used to be a thriving miners' town with 3 mines which operated from 1859 to 1945 at the end of World War II. It was one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada where they mined gold, silver, copper and lead yielding over $6 million. The town is made up of three (now abandoned) mines; Techatticup, Wall Street, and El Dorado Rand Group. The source of transportation for goods was by steamboat on the Colorado River just at the end of the road. Most of the miners here were deserters from the Civil War. The town and mines had a very bad reputation as it was a lawless community being so isolated from the Sheriff and civilization. There were many killings and feuds here, so much so that it was an ordinary occurance. The U.S. Army set up an outpost here in 1867 to protect the community and riverboats' freight from Native Americans. The army left the camp in 1869 and the mines thrived once again until the end of the war. The movie '3000 Miles to Graceland' with Kevin Costner and Kurt Russel used this area as part of their movie shoot where they blew up an airplane on-site. Remnants of the airplane were left behind and shown in this video.

The Wisconsin Mine is a small area encompassing a couple small ridges and ravines that have many tunnels of varying lengths. This particular tunnel turned out to be a great find -- it featured nearly all of the classic abandoned mine elements such as stopes, winzes, vertical shafts, timbered portal, and winding tunnels. One interesting thing we found inside this mine was an old shoe. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundExploration

Castle Dome Landing, Arizona is a ghost town in the Castle Dome Mountains of Yuma County in the U.S. state of Arizona. It was first settled as a transport depot and mining camp around 1863 in what was then the Arizona Territory. As with many mining boomtowns, mining activity diminished, and the Castle Dome Landing post office closed down on June 16, 1884. The mines reopened in 1890, and the area became a significant source of lead for both WWI and WWII. In particular, when the Arizona Lead Company reopened the mines in 1943, they were able to produce significant amounts of lead in order to meet wartime demands. After WWII, the demand for lead decreased, and the town again went into decline, though mining activity continued for some years in the area. The school was shut down in 1950, and the mines went into and out of use as the price of silver, still found in the area, rose and fell. By 1978, the mines were all shut down, and the last of the residents were gone.

In a first for us, we stumbled across an intact headframe in the Viburnum Trend. This shaft and its associated headframe and hoist house served as a service and escape shaft for the No. 28 mine, and likely had a secondary role as a ventilation shaft. The small escape 'cage' is still on-site, as is the complete hoist motor and all of its associated electrical hardware. The shaft appears to have a hasty cap, the cables have been cut, and the fire extinguisher has been removed from the hoist house. Aside from this, the complex looks exactly as it did when in service. As far as we know, with the exception of the production shaft at Federal's No. 3 mill, now a museum, this is one of two surviving abandoned lead mine headframes in Missouri, the other standing on state land over St. Joe's old No. 25 shaft west of Farmington. The No. 28 mine officially closed in 2004. I suspect this to mean that ore production from the shaft ceased in 2004, given our experience last night. We drove to the gates of the No. 28 surface plant- powerhouse, dry house, headframe, shops, and other structures- and found it gated, locked, full of in-service equipment of types known to be used underground by Doe Run, and with all structures fully lit. While we could not tell if the mine's shaft is still in service- if it were, it would probably be moving heavy equipment to the other interconnected mines- the surface plant is most certainly in use. Our first clue was the fact that, while exploring the service shaft, the mine's main electrical substation was lit up and apparently in service. "Officially closed" doesn't mean too much in the Ozarks, you'll find!

This is a very odd site. Mining at the Annapolis Mine began around 1915 (I have also heard 1921 stated) and ended in 1940. As far as I know, only lead was produced. Documentation is virtually nonexistent aside from EPA information on remediation, and a photo I found of the aftermath of the Tri-State Tornado hitting the mine in 1925. A family resided on the site in a converted mine structure until the late 1990s, when site remediation was performed. The previously-occupied structure is basically in the condition it was left in, complete with numerous belongings. We cleared the building with loaded weapons; no video was taken out of respect for those who lived here. Absolutely the spookiest thing we have ever stumbled across.

Took a weekend trip to the mountains to capture this forgotten town. We also got to test out our new drone but unfortunately, that may have been what attracted the unwanted attention! The town was evacuated back in the 80's due to high amounts of Zinc that seeped into the water. The area is currently uninhabited by humans as the water is still polluted and the area is surrounded by active sinkholes. ------Let's get Social------ Insta - https://www.instagram.com/puppetofjenova Twitter - https://twitter.com/PuppetofJenova Twitch - https://www.twitch.tv/puppetofjenova ---------------------------------------------------------------- Song: Lead in the Water by: æther Cult

While accurate, the title demands an explanation… Yes, everyone missed here. As you’ll see in this, and subsequent videos, this is a failed placer mine. The many gold miners that worked here were desperately searching for the ancient river channels that so many other mines in the mining district had tapped into with immense success. In their search for those gold-filled channels, the miners at this mine explored underground to the right, left, up and down within the claim boundaries. However, quite simply, they missed… Fortunately, their efforts make for a quite unique and interesting abandoned mine. Then, Adit Addicts and I arrived at this mine site. We had a verbal description of where the adit was and even a fairly precise location from a topographic map. After looking all over the place for this adit on multiple visits, but failing to locate it, we eventually concluded that it had eroded shut and been lost forever. However, quite simply, we missed… Following the visits from Adit Addicts and me, our pals in the U.S. Forest arrived on the scene and, to their eternal disgrace, they have succeeded in mostly destroying this historic mine. They THINK they have completely destroyed it. However, quite simply, they missed… Well, they missed this adit - which is the main adit at the mine. Finally, Adit Addicts, on a return trip over the winter, did NOT miss. It was through a stroke of luck that he was able to locate this adit, but locate it he did. To be fair to the miners, to us and, yes, even to the Forest Service, this is not an easy mine to locate or one that presents easy working conditions… To say that we were surprised by how extensive this mine turned out to be would be a huge understatement. I have to be careful in sharing much information on this one as I do not want the Forest Service to return and finish their destruction. However, it is very interesting to look at the ownership records of this mine as it changed hands over and over again as one disillusioned miner after another apparently dumped it on the next sucker. Also, as was alluded to in our conversation inside of the mine about the Chinese miners, quite a diverse array of ethnic groups mined here. I’d love to give more details. Perhaps one day we will have more enlightened governance and I can share so much more about the abandoned mines we visit… So, I promised to talk about the “strips” I am constantly referencing on what look like rails… Traditional rails, whether they are for trains or ore carts, are heavy and expensive. Thus, for miners operating on a budget in locations that are difficult to reach, a lighter and cheaper alternative ranks high on their wish list. From this, were born wooden “rails.” The miners would take sturdy boards (lighter and cheaper) and lay these down in the same configuration as rails. They would then take thin strips of metal (some people call them straps) and would nail these down on top of the boards. The boards are not as sturdy or as smooth as rail, but they get the job done. The metal strips on top of the boards are to protect the wood from being immediately destroyed by the metal ore cart wheels. One will often see those metal strips scattered around old mines as the boards and strips had to be replaced often. I’ll talk more about what exactly the miners missed in the next video as well as how painfully close they were… The link to the next video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keSl6y2b6nI The YouTube channel for Adit Addicts can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIXOU8aR7o50X6q2wQ0wbCQ ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

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. I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

A giant hole we found at the top of a hill on our farm. I tied a string around my telephone, turned on the video recorder and lowered it into the hole. Scary as heck. It's all stone along the edges but we are debating whether it's a well, a cave, or an old mining shaft. The string was only about 15 feet long. Tomorrow, I'll try with a much longer string. In the 1830s, this was a lead mining village so we wonder if this was a mining shaft. The entrance is on the top of a rolling hill, down inside a small (maybe 5 feet by 8 feet) divot in the ground, like a little sink hole, which makes me wonder if it could be a cave. Also, I would think that a well would be placed at the bottom of a hill, not at the top. I'd welcome people's thoughts and input. I'll post a video deeper into the hole as soon as I take it. Thanks!

These ghost town buildings are the remains of a much larger town once housing 3000 people. The Castle dome mining district had roughly 300 mines mining silver and lead. But today it's a museum with artifacts discovered in many of its mines. You have to drive through the Yuma proving grounds on a dirt road to get here. It's about an hour northeast of Yuma, Arizona. It has old bars, a church, barbershop, hotel, bunk house, cemetery. There are about fifty buildings in total and you'll need about two hours to see everything. There are thousands of mining era artifacts and it's worth the trip. Website: http://www.castledomemuseum.org/ Phone: 928-920-3062

BATTERSEA POWER STATION, LONDON There are two identical decommissioned coal power generating stations at the Battersea Power Station in south London, which is located along the Thames River. The first station, known as Battersea A Power Station, was built in the 1930’s; the second, Battersea B Power Station, was constructed during the 1950’s. 7. WOLA GASWORKS, POLAND The abandoned Warsaw Gasworks, also known as the Wola Gas Company, is one of Europe’s, and perhaps the world’s, most pristine examples of late 19th and early 20th century industrial architecture. You know, if you're into that sort of thing. The neoclassical structures that make up the complex were built in 1888. They were destroyed during World War II, in 1939, and were thereafter immobilized. 6. PATAREI PRISON, ESTONIA On the outskirts of the Old Town of Tallinn on the north coast of Estonia lies Patarei Prison. It was originally built as a sea fortress in 1820, but was used as a high-security prison facility by the Soviets during their occupation of the country from 1944 to 1991, and was considered one of the scariest places in Estonia. 5. ARGENTIERA, SARDINIA, ITALY Argentiera was a silver- and lead-mining town on the Italian island of Sardinia that thrived into the 1940’s. Silver had been mined here since the ancient era of the Romans and Phoenicians, and was an important commodity within the Roman economy. 4. GEAMANA, APUSENI MOUNTAINS, ROMANIA Located near Geamana, the Rosia Poieni mine was once Europe’s second-largest copper mine and employed around 500 people. During the 1970’s, copper was discovered in the hills above the Romanian village of Geamana. In the spring of 1977, the villagers’ lives were turned upside-down, as representatives and prospectors working for the then-dictator Nicolae Ceausescu arrived and essentially told them to pack up and prepare to move elsewhere. 3. BURLINGTON BUNKER, ENGLAND This 35-acre underground property in England was kept a complete secret from the public until it was decommissioned in 2004. Unbeknownst to even the local population, it was located 100 feet underneath the churches, homes, and cobblestone streets of Corsham, a quaint market town in Wiltshire. The already-existing set of limestone caves underneath the small city made it an ideal location for the bunker. 2. CIUDAD REAL CENTRAL AIRPORT, SPAIN When you think of creepy abandoned places, one of the first things that probably comes to mind is an old, decrepit building. However, that’s not always the case. Located 120 miles (200 km) south of Madrid, Spain, the Ciudad Real Central Airport was in operation for just three years before it closed in 2012. 1. CZESTOCHOWA TRAIN GRAVEYARD, Poland In the city of Czestochowa (Ches-to-kova) in Poland, there’s an abandoned train depot that was once a bustling transportation hub that connected the Warsaw-Vienna railway with the rest of Europe. The railway opened in 1846 and is one of the reasons the city became one of Russian Poland’s leading industrial centers.

The small South Dakota city of Lead was once home to the largest gold mine in North America. When it closed in 2002, the town took a big hit as hundreds of workers lost their jobs and many left in search of work. But the future of Lead could hinge on people going back underground to dig into a very different matter. Jim Axelrod reports.

Nestled deep within the eastern Ozarks in an areaknown as the Old Lead Belt; is a major part of the great Southeast Missouri lead district, the premier lead mining district of the world. The mining industry in this area played an important role in Missouri's economic and social fabric for more than 280 years. Pierre Charles Leseurled the first European mineralogical expedition in the Mississippi Valley in early 1700. Two decades later, word came of a "shiny gray mineral, that was everywhere, often laying on the surface of the ground." These early explorers discovered that blanketlike lodes of galena, many feet thick, lay just below the surface. This plentiful mineral is the primary lead ore still mined today in Missouri. The ore deposits have made Missouri the nations major source of lead for more than 90 years. In 1964, St Joseph Lead Co. purchased nearly 950 acres at Bonne Terre, Missouri.The company soon rose to dominance over its competitors because of its innovations in ore-smelting,underground engineering technology and the development and use of mechanical equipment. In 1923 the company purchased the Federal Mill No. 3 lead-concentrating complex and improved the mill to become the largest lead mill in the world. It remained in operation until 1972.

After following the drift we ended the last video with to its surprising conclusion, we started moving back toward the main hub of this enormous abandoned mine. Along the way, we explored many of the side passages and raises that were bypassed on the route in through the main haulage adit located in this part of the mine. Following the very long hike up and out of the mine, we set up our camp for the night (we spent all day underground in this mine) and then headed above the mine to see some of its more interesting features above ground. You’ll see that we explore some of the mine buildings, including one that has an amazing collection inside of it. Although I was curious about what was inside of the modern mine buildings we discovered, I also had a specific destination in mind. One of my exploring buddies – Adit Addicts – had spotted what appeared to be a steam shovel abandoned above the modern mine we explored in this video. I wanted to see this machine to confirm what it was and also to film it if it really did turn out to be a steam shovel. As with the mine itself, it was quite a hike up into the hills above it. Fortunately, I was able to find the machine (although the GPS took me on a terrible route to do so) and it was indeed a steam shovel. Sort of... It was a steam shovel at one time, but had actually been converted over to run on an internal combustion motor. I had never seen anything like that before and it was pretty amazing to see one out in the desert mountains still next to the pile of dirt it had been excavating decades ago. The modern abandoned mine featured in this video is definitely not the first mine in this area and when looking around above the mine, it was fairly common to see old collapsed adits and old surface mining work. Many of these seemed to be more exploratory in nature though. This area has historically been a large producer of ores containing lead, copper and silver and a thriving town was once supported by the mines. However, today, there is almost no trace left of the ghost town or an aerial tramway that also used to be here. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Dudleytown Back in the infancy of our country Dudleytown was a small settlement in Cornwall, Connecticut. The Dudley family owned the land, but never turned the area into an official town. For decades they allowed others to settle on their plot. Unfortunately for those trying to forge a life in the settlement the land wasn’t very good for farming and it was ultimately abandoned sometime in the 19th century. Trees had their way with the land for centuries and starting in the 1980’s rumors of ghost activities began. This lead to increased vandalism. As a result the owners closed the land to the public and today it remains private property. 5. North Brother Island Urban explorers and history buffs alike are drawn to New York’s North Brother Island, a 13 acre stretch of land that was once home to Riverside, a quarantine hospital. The medical facility operated from 1885 until 1963, during which time it famously housed Typhoid Mary. After it's closure the hospital was left totally abandoned. With no one there to keep things tidy, nature has had her way with the building. Trees and roots run rampant in and around the structure creating a fascinating site for those brave enough to traverse the desolate island. 4. Thurmond This town in West Virginia, which is almost completely vacant has become a relic of the past. Today much of it is owned by the National Park Service but it still looks the way it did when it was a booming coal town in the 1920’s. Though it's mostly a ghost town there are, at last count five people still living within its borders. In 2005, during city elections, six of Thurmond’s seven residents sought election. 3. South Pass City Wyoming In the mid 1800’s South Pass City was used as a stage and telegraph station along the Oregon Trail. Gold was discovered in the vicinity in 1866 and by 1870 the town was filled with thousands of prospectors. Everyone hoped that large deposits of gold lay further under the earth, but none were found and by the mid 1870’s the population was down to around 100 individuals. A few businesses continued to forge a living in South Pass City, but these pioneer families finally moved out in 1949. By the end of the 20th century many of the town’s homes were in a state of disrepair until finally being restored as a historic site for tourists. 2. Cahaba Cahaba established itself in the history of Alabama and the United States by becoming the first permanent state capital in 1820. It's low elevation and location at the confluence of the Alabama and Cahaba rivers meant that the village was subject to seasonal flooding. Consequently the capital was moved to Tuscaloosa in January 1826. Cahaba would remain an important town and become a major distribution point for cotton. During the Civil War the Confederacy seized Cahabas railroad and turned a large cotton warehouse into a prison, where roughly 3,000 Union soldiers were held. Floods persisted throughout the town’s history and by the turn of the 20th century most of it's buildings and people had been relocated. It became the subject and setting of many ghost stories. Today Cahaba is a fascinating historical site where visitors can still see old streets, cemeteries and government buildings of what was once the state capital. Hey friends hope you’re enjoying the vid. Just wanted to say thanks for watching and if you have any suggestions for something you wanted to see let us know in the comments section and we may just make it happen for you. Have a great day. And now number... 1. Bannack Montana Montana may not be the most popular or talked about state in America, but it's a really cool place to go, especially for those with a love of the outdoors. Just outside of Bannack State Park, in Beaverhead County lies Bannack a small town named after a tribe of Indians that has long since been abandoned. Founded in 1862 when gold was discovered in the area, Bannack briefly served as the capital of the Montana Territory in 1864. It persisted as a mining town, though its population dwindled steadily until the last residents left in the 1970’s. Today Bannack remains a very well preserved ghost town with buildings like the Methodist Church and Hotel Meade looking as though they could be put into full use at a moment's notice.

At a chilly 1:30 AM, Paul and I started hiking four miles across the desert and up into the mountains to reach a remote, abandoned mine. Lead and silver were most likely mined at this site long ago. This video also shows some of the vibrant rock colors that we found inside the tunnels. Despite the grueling hike, we enjoyed documenting this particular mine. Definitely well worth the effort! #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

A visit to an abandoned Lead Mine in the West of our County near Skipton, North Yorkshire. U.K. The weather was glorious, and the site was very interesting. Classed as an open museum and left as was apart from a necessary metal grille over an open shaft. Well worth a visit if you are ever in the area. Got some good aerial footage using the Drone. The mine was mainly operated between 1825 & 1882 but saw further activity in fits and starts up to 1958. Buzzard Exploration 2018

As can be plainly seen by the diminished status of the portal, it won’t be long before this mine is no longer accessible. Given the activity of the seasonal creek and the significant amounts of water that pour into this mine every year, I’d guess no more than a season or two... As such, I’m very glad we got the chance to visit as we may well be the last visitors to this mine. Ever. And this is very likely the only video footage that exists of this mine. I find that to be somewhat sad, but the mountains and deserts are absolutely filled with historic mines like this that have been lost forever. I’ve seen mind-blowing old photographs from the inside of mines not far from the one seen in this video. Perhaps they are still impressive underground, but they are no longer accessible and, on the surface, there is little trace of them and the men that struggled, sweated and bled there. At least we were able to get into this mine in its final days to capture what will soon be gone. So, what was the deal with the ore chute? Ore chutes are supposed to be free of obstructions with sides as smooth as possible to facilitate the ore easily sliding down them to the waiting ore carts below. The large ore chute in this mine seemed to break those rules. The sides were not smooth and those boards laid across the supports would get in the way of ore or waste rock being dropped down (if the impact didn’t break the boards). Given the quality of the woodwork, I do not have the impression that the miners didn’t know what they were doing. So, I really don’t know what was going on there. Any ideas? I’m also a bit puzzled by the function of that fantastic wood-lined raise. I understand the purpose of the wood in preventing rock from sloughing off the sides and it looked really cool to have all sides of the square covered. However, what was the real purpose of that structure in the first place? So, the miners could access an upper level? Well, obviously, but what did they do when they got up there? There was no ore chute to drop ore down. So, what were they doing up there and why was such a large opening necessary if it was just providing access to the miners? If it connects to the workings accessed by the ore chute, what is the need for the raise since the miners could have just climbed up the manway next to the ore chute to access those workings? I hate unanswered questions like these as we will likely never know the answer. This is the first time that I have explored an abandoned mine in this part of the Sierra Nevada. The region was off of my radar, but after a very precise tip from a viewer, I saw quite quickly that overlooking this area had been a mistake. Having already picked a lot of the low-hanging fruit around us, tips from viewers are becoming increasingly important (hint hint). We don’t have the money or time to run off to Nevada, Alaska, Italy, Germany, Indonesia, Slovenia, etc. every week for a new video. So, we need that local knowledge to help steer us toward some good mines to explore! ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

This underground lead mine is typical of the primitive mines of the era. It was originally mined by an Irishman in 1822 and handed down from generation to generation. The museum features a variety of lead and ore samples and mining tools.

Adamsville was a populated place in Pinal County, Arizona. Once a thriving farm town, it became a ghost town by the 1920s. Adamsville is located at an elevation is 1,450 feet, on the south bank of the Gila River, west of Florence, Arizona. Adamsville was one of the first two towns formed in Pinal County, Arizona. It was named for its original settler in 1866, Charles S. Adams. When a post office was established there in 1871, it was named Sanford, (for a Captain George B. Sanford of the First U.S. Cavalry), by a political enemy of Mr. Adams, Richard McCormick. Local residents continued to use the original name, causing confusion which existed until 1876, when the post office was discontinued. The entire settlement was gone by 1920.

This abandoned mine had more than one “most” and THAT is impressive because a “most” is, by definition, a rare occurrence. However, this mine was, in fact, the most colorful that I have ever explored and also had timber sets that were under the most severe pressure that I have ever seen before. Pretty impressive to have two “mosts” in one mine, wouldn’t you agree? Now, I’m afraid that many viewers are going to ask me which minerals are creating those splendid colors inside of the mine. The short answer is that I am not a geologist and I don’t know. However, I would normally associate those blues with copper ores. The mineral that looked like chunks of gold scattered between the blues is actually pyrite (also known as “fool’s gold”). Trust me, miners would not leave visible chunks of gold behind! There were, of course, veins of quartz mixed in as well. Known minerals to have been extracted at this site include silver, copper, tungsten, lead, zinc and gold. As with many mines in Nevada, it started out as a silver mine though. I don’t get rattled too easily when exploring abandoned mines, but those shattered timbers toward the end made me very uncomfortable. It was dry in this mine and so those timbers didn’t look like that because they were rotted, but because they seemed to be getting squeezed in from the sides with incredible force. I say that the intense pressure seemed to be coming from the sides rather than the top because the ties for the ore cart rails were snapped in half and it was, primarily, the timbers on the ribs (sides) of the adit that were snapped. The snapped timbers supporting the back (top) looked as if they were broken from being squeezed from both sides rather than from something pressing down on them. I am, frankly, amazed that those timbers have not caved yet as it seemed like just a bat farting back there would create enough of a disturbance to bring that whole section of the mine crashing down. I’m referring to the proverbial straw breaking the camel’s back and that section didn’t seem like that would need much of a straw to finish things. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. This was a major national center of lead and zinc mining at the heart of the Tri-State Mining District. More than a century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic metal-contaminated mine tailings (known as chat) heaped throughout the area. The discovery of the cave-in risks, groundwater contamination, and health effects associated with the chat piles and subsurface shafts resulted in the site being included in 1980 in the Tar Creek Superfund Site by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
