01:53:44
THE REAL HISTORY OF THE GOLD RUSH (OLD WILD WEST DOCUMENTARY) At the end of 1853, San Francisco was a city on the fast track. A few years earlier, the seaside town had been a sleepy village of just 800 people. But the sight of gold in the waters of the American River set the stage for an event that would forever change a city, a fledgling state, and the nation. Incorporating rare and exquisite daguerreotypes and original recreations, this film offers a vivid portrait of a seminal event in America's history.

Mining the New American West | National Geographic
 
06:03
For centuries the American West has been the realm of cowboys, miners and frontiersman. Since 1872 mining companies have been reaping the benefit of an antiquated law allowing mining companies to purchase land at bargain prices, such as the recent acquisition of an entire mountain for only 875 dollars. Wild Chronicles follows what happens when 19th century laws are faced up against 21st century sensibilities. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

The American West 05 - Gold in the Black Hills (1874) - from Timelines.tv
 
09:17
The story of the South Dakota gold rush of 1874, and of its impact on the sacred homelands of the Lakota Sioux. (9.25 mins) This module tells the story of the prospectors, focusing on the story of the South Dakota Gold Rush of 1874. The Black Hills had been promised to the Lakota "as long as grass grows and the rivers flow" - but when an expedition led by Col. George Custer established the presence of gold in the hills, these promises to the Native Americans were soon broken. The module describes the experiences of Annie Tallent, one of the first prospectors to enter the hills, and the only woman amongst the Gordon Party of 1874. Written and directed by Andrew Chater. Originally commissioned and broadcast by the BBC. Copyright Andrew Chater / Lodestar Productions / Timelines.tv, streamed with the BBC's consent.

53:47
WILD WEST ONLINE Welcome to the only emergent systems-driven, open world, Wild West-themed action MMO built from the ground up exclusively for PC, featuring world exploration, resource gathering, PvP combat, PvE missions and much, much more. “We all came to this new world for a reason. Some looking for the thrills of the frontier, some seeking fortune and glory, and some just looking for a new beginning. Whether seeking justice, revenge or escape from past deeds -- we all had to find our own way to survive.” WILD WEST ONLINE Wild West Online is an exciting online action mmo that takes you into a thrilling world of action-packed PVP combat, intriguing PVE missions and open world exploration, and social role playing. WWO gives you full freedom to be a gunslinger, explorer, crafter, miner or homesteader as you immerse yourself in its gorgeous Western world that spans several unique biomes. TWO RIVAL FAMILIES In Wild West Online you can choose to fight for one of two Rival Families fighting to control territories and resources in Rosewell Conty: the ruthless McFarlane Family, or their calculating rival Steele Industries. Fight for the honor of your clan, help settle scores, and most importantly defend your own territory while seizing land and resources away from your rival. PUBLIC PVP EVENTS Combat-oriented public PVP events will bring WWO players together to fight for riches in action-packed, timed arena combat. Regularly occurring events will let you test your mettle and hone your skills, and high-stakes, get-rich events are also planned. SHERIFFS VS OUTLAWS If you choose to role play as a gunslinger, there's also the matter of which side of the law you choose: the righteous, restricted path of a Sheriff, or the dangerous freedom of running as an Outlaw. Naturally, Sheriffs and Outlaws are pitted against each other in Wild West Online, with risks and rewards specific to each role. GET SOCIAL WWO offers many play elements beyond combat, to satisfy many kinds of players. If you're a resource grinder, you can enjoy farming, mining and trading. Adventurers will enjoy PVE quests, builders will delve into the crafting system, gamblers can test their luck, and social role players can mingle with friends and take on socially active roles in the community. CHARACTER PROGRESSION Character progression is also an important element of WWO. Build your skill tree by focusing on areas of interest, rather than locking into a rigid class system. And NPCs can give you PVE quests, which help accelerate your character progression. UPGRADE YOUR WEAPONS Wild West Online also offers plenty of customization options. Customize and upgrade your weapons with either common items found in shops and regular loot boxes, or rare items that you can purchase, or earn via quests. CUSTOMIZE YOUR CHARACTER AND HORSE Gameplay and special purcahses will also unlock new skins and costumes, including options to customize your steed. Craft your own distinct style in Wild West Online by unlocking cool customizations and mixing-and-matching a unique look for your character and horse. CLAIM YOUR LAND, DECORATE YOUR HOUSE, SHOW IT TO YOUR FRIENDS Wild West Online also lets you claim a homestead (land deed purchase required). Once you've got your land, you can decorate your house in your own style and then invite in-game friends to socialize in this customized hang-out space.

Coal mining in America's heartland | DW Documentary
 
42:26
West Virginia, USA - under its wild mountain idyll hides the "black hell": A labyrinth of dark tunnels - hard life in a coal mine. [Online until: 15 August 2019] "Wild, wonderful West Virginia” - that’s how the small state nestled in the Appalachian Mountains bills itself. This documentary reports on the daily struggle facing local coal miners hoping for help from Donald Trump; a sheriff combating the opioid epidemic that has already claimed thousands of lives; and a Cherokee environmental activist whose efforts have earned her intimidation and threats. The whistle of a locomotive at the front of an old coal train, quiet winding roads, and hardly a highway to be found - that’s still the image that many have of West Virginia today. But beneath the forest-covered mountains lies a labyrinth of tunnels just one meter high, in which miners still spend their entire working days toiling in the dark on their hands and knees. The camera team accompanies a traditional coal mining family as they go about their day. Together with the family’s two sons, Scott and Steven Lockhart, the crew ventures into the mine. Conversations with the miners reveal why people who had been lifelong Democratic Party supporters are suddenly placing their hopes for the future in Donald Trump. But the documentary also ventures beyond the coal mines to uncover the lesser-known sides of this Appalachian state - from snake-handling Pentecostal churches to the bluegrass and mountain ballads of Alan Cathead Johnston. We also speak with Sheriff Martin West, who sued the country’s three biggest pharmaceutical makers for their role in the opioid epidemic that has swept the region. And we meet another person who has decided to fight back: Maria Gunnoe, a young Cherokee activist who has dared to take on the coal barons that are ravaging the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

The Homestake Mine was a deep underground gold mine located in Lead, South Dakota. Until it closed in 2002 it was the largest and deepest gold mine in North America. The mine produced more than 40 million troy ounces (approximately 1.25 million kilograms) of gold during its lifetime. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * History of the Homestake Mine: The Homestake deposit was discovered by Fred and Moses Manuel, Alex Engh and Hank Harney in April 1876, during the Black Hills Gold Rush. A trio of mining entrepreneurs, George Hearst, Lloyd Tevis, and James Ben Ali Haggin, bought it from them for $70,000 the following year. George Hearst arrived at the mine in October 1877, and took active control of the property. Hearst had to haul in all the mining equipment by wagons from the nearest railhead in Sidney, Nebraska. Arthur De Wint Foote worked as an engineer. Despite the remote location, an 80-stamp mill began crushing Homestake ore in July 1878. The partners sold shares in the Homestake Mining Company, and listed it on the New York Stock Exchange in 1879. The Homestake would become one of the longest-listed stocks in the history of the NYSE (Con Edison's original name was New York Gas Light and was listed in 1824). Hearst consolidated and enlarged the Homestake property by fair and foul means. He bought out some adjacent claims, and secured others in the courts. By the time Hearst left the Black Hills in March 1879, he had added the claims of Giant, Golden Star, Netty, May Booth, Golden Star No. 2, Crown Point, Sunrise, and General Ellison to the original two claims of the Manuel Brothers, Golden Terra and Old Abe, totaling 30 acres. The ten-stamp mill had become 200, and 500 employees worked in the mine, mills, offices and shops. He owned the Boulder Ditch and water rights to Whitewood Creek, monopolizing the region. His railroad, Black Hills & Fort Pierre Railroad, gave him access to eastern Dakota territory. By 1900, the Homestake owned 300 claims, on 2000 acres, and was worked by more than 2000 employees. In 1901, the mine started using compressed air locomotives, replacing the mules and horses by the 1920s. Charles Washington Merrill introduced cyanidization to augment mercury-amalgamation for gold recovery. "Cyanide Charlie" finally achieved 94 per cent recovery. The gold was shipped to the Denver Mint. By 1906, the Ellison Shaft reached 1,550 feet, the B&M 1,250 feet, the Golden Star 1,100 feet, and the Golden Prospect 900 feet, producing 1,500,000 tons of ore. A disastrous fire struck on 25 March 1907, which took forty days to extinguish after the mine was flooded. Another disastrous fire struck in 1919. In 1927, company geologist Donald H. McLaughlin used a winze from the 2,000 level to demonstrate ore reached the 3,500 foot level. The Ross shaft was started in 1934, a second winze from the 3,500 foot level reached 4,100 feet, and a third winze from 4,100 feet was started in 1937. The Yates shaft was started in 1938. Production ceased from 1943 until 1945, due to Limitation Order L-208 from the Government. By 1975, mining operations has reached the 6,800 foot level, and two winzes were planned to 8,000 feet.

Ghost Towns: Abandoned But Not Forgotten
 
03:35
These towns, often far off the beaten path and rooted in the mining industry, couldn't survive when the gold, silver, copper, and coal were gone. Check out the stories behind these boom-towns. For more stories --- http://allday.com/ Follow our twitter accounts --- https://twitter.com/historyinpics Follow our Instagram -- http://instagram.com/historyphotographed -- http://instagram.com/itsabandoned 1. 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

America West: Bodie Ghost Town
 
14:04
This is Bodie, or rather the remains of Bodie. Only about five percent of the buildings it contained during its 1880s heyday still remain. Today, it stands just as time, fire and the elements have left it—a genuine California gold mining ghost town. Designated a state historic park in 1962, it is now maintained in a state of "arrested decay." Bodie was named after Waterman S. Body (also known as William S. Bodey), who discovered gold here in 1859. The change in spelling of the town's name has often been attributed to an illiterate sign painter, but it was a deliberate change by the citizenry to ensure proper pronunciation. The town of Bodie rose to prominence with the decline of mining along the western slope of the Sierra Nevada. Prospectors crossing the eastern slope in 1859 to "see the elephant"—that is, to search for gold—made a rich discovery at Virginia City. This huge gold strike, later to be known as the Comstock Lode, started a wild rush to the surrounding high desert country. By 1879 Bodie boasted a population of about 10,000 and was second to none for wickedness, badmen, and "the worst climate out of doors." One little girl, whose family was taking her to the remote and infamous town, wrote in her diary: "Goodbye God, I'm going to Bodie." The phrase came to be known throughout the West. Killings occurred with monotonous regularity, sometimes becoming almost daily events. The fire bell, which tolled the ages of the deceased when they were buried, rang often and long. Robberies, stage holdups and street fights provided variety, and the town's 65 saloons offered many opportunities for relaxation after hard days of work in the mines. The Reverend F M. Warrington saw it in 1881 as "a sea of sin, lashed by the tempests of lust and passion." Nearly everyone has heard about the infamous "Badman from Bodie." Some historians say that he was a real person by the name of Tom Adams. Others say his name was Washoe Pete. It seems more likely, however, that he was a composite. Bad men, like bad whiskey and bad climate, were endemic to the area. Whatever the case, the streets are quiet now. Bodie still has its wicked climate, but with the possible exception of an occasional ghostly visitor, its badmen are all in their graves.

Gold 'mother lode' worth $15 million unearthed in Western Australia
 
02:14
Underground miners in outback Western Australia have unearthed rare gold specimens which geologists are calling a "once-in-a-lifetime discovery". Workers at the Beta Hunt mine near the small town of Kambalda, 630 kilometres east of Perth, have brought more than $15 million worth of gold specimens to the surface in just four days. The gold-encrusted rocks were found about 500 metres below the surface in an area just three metres wide and three metres high.

6 Historic Mad Gold Rushes
 
11:32
Stumbling upon gold can chance people’s life, like the California historic gold rush or even the Bitcoin boom. Here are some of the most historic gold rushes ever. Subscribe to World5List http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Find us on... -- http://www.boredbadger.com -- http://www.facebook.com/world5list Historic Gold Rushes Some people dream of winning it big in the lottery but what if you accidentally stumbled upon a large amount of wealth? It just so happens that in our past and even in our present with cryptocurrency like bitcoin people still go bonkers over the idea of striking it rich easily so join us as we check out some historic gold rushes that ended up changing people's lives for better or worse: The California Gold Rush In 1848, it would be a carpenter from New Jersey that accidentally created one of the greatest gold rushes in American history. His name was James Wilson Marshall and he found flakes of gold in the American River at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Coloma, California. Witswatersrand Gold Rush One of the most popular locations to source gold still today was discovered long before 1886 by Africans and Natives who were already mining for the precious mineral, but it was Witswaterrand that would play a key part in the Mineral Revolution and it also led to the establishment of Johannesburg, South Africa. The Black Hills Gold Rush The land was technically owned by the Sioux at the time in 1874 but the first arrivals of men seeking gold were led by George Armstrong Custer. He brought along with him 1000 men to investigate the rumors that there was gold in present-day Custer, South Dakota. Georgia Gold Rush of 1829 The George Gold Rush of 1829 at the time was known as Cherokee Nation, but it began to be flooded by thousands of prospectors hoping to find gold in the area. There were around four thousand miners working along the Yahoola Creek alone and the numbers only grew over time. Pike's Peak or Bust! The Pike's Peak or Bust! Slogan could be seen on carriages coming into town and it actually became the slogan in reference to the early prospectors who came to the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains in search of gold. Bitcoin Boom We have come quite a long way from the time when prospectors and miners had to get lucky and search in rocky regions in order to strike it rich, but now with the Bitcoin Boom things aren't so far from our past.

Poisoned By The Gold Rush
 
14:23
Gold is quickly becoming the new cocaine in Colombia. The precious metal is now the currency of choice for individuals and groups engaging in illicit trade in the South American country. That's because unlike cocaine, it's perfectly legal to carry gold, and unlike money, it's virtually untraceable. But there are some major side-effects of Colombia's new gold rush that locals are curiously quiet about: erectile dysfunction and brain damage. VICE News correspondent Monica Villamizar travelled to the Antioquia, Colombia, a hotbed of illegal gold mining, to investigate an unprecedented surge in impotence and neurological problems that experts are attributing to mercury, an essential gold-digging element.

Ghana is one of the world's poorest countries, yet it is rich in gold. For a decade now, Chinese miners from the region of Shanglin have travelled there to try their luck mining gold. 101 East travels to the middle of the tropical rainforest to meet the Chinese miners and Ghanaian workers trying to escape poverty. But is this gold rush really benefiting the impoverished nation, or is all the money going back to China with the miners - leaving Ghana with an environmental bill to pay?

MOST Mysterious Ghost Towns in the US

From abandoned mining towns with no more gold, to haunted places, here are 10 Mysterious Ghost towns in the US GET TO DYNAMITE TV AND SUBSCRIBE ! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJf35rv_-9uZiXjOi51t3JQ Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. Thurmond West Virginia Once a thriving center of Coal mining in West Virginia, Thurmond was a prosperous place of commerce and businesses along the Ohio Railway. It popped up in the 1880’s in the center of the state and consisted of popular hotels, casinos, banks, schools. It was a fairly well organized city with strict laws on drinking. In 1888 a rail station was built which allowed for tourism in the area and also to carry the coal out of the hills. The population reached a peak of 462 people 1930 but steady downfall would occur not too long after. A popular hotel was burnt to the ground which which had startled much of the population and would finally reach 0 in the year 2000. You can see the contrast between the cities built out in the west and out in the east during this time. There was much more technological advancements and the addition of coal to a city at this period of time would allow them to heat their homes. Surprisingly the city hasn’t received too many vandals and much of it’s past is preserved. 4. Salton Sea Gallons of water were sent gushing into a dry lake bed after a storm caused an irrigation canal to flood and break in the Colorado River. So the Salton Sea is basically lucky to exist in that sense. A resort town was built near this body of water, which became a popular location for boating. Many people once flocked here to soak up the sun, go jet skiing and drive fancy yachts in the booming 50’s and 60’s. Stars like the Beach Boys and Bono would encore this lake, right in the heart of California’s desert. It’s probably now the last place you’d want to go on vacation unless you enjoy putrid odors and some of those boats are left abandoned on this decaying lake.. Not all good things last forever and this place quickly turned into an ecological nightmare due to pesticides and fertilizers from nearby farms and the irrigation system. It’s seen as one of California’s biggest environmental blunders of all time It became much too polluted to sustain life even for fish. The inhabitants quickly fled once the smell of the water became unbearable. To this day, dead fish litter the once popular beaches, leaving a rotten egg like smell that would be enough to scare off any urban explorer and it’s certainly not good for tourism. The size of the lake continues to shrink even in 2017 and the smell of rotting fish will continue to get worse. 3. St Elmo Colorado Don’t forget the rockie mountains also have their fair share of gold as well. And where there was once gold, there are abandoned towns.This places is located in the Sawatch Mountains and features well-preserved wooden buildings from the 1880’s after the gold and silver mines sprung up. The town had a general store, a town hall, 5 hotels, dancing halls and saloons during it’s peak around the 1890’s the resources were mined and not much else was left, the railroad was closed so no one kept on coming here. Some residents seemed to stay until 1952 when the postal service was cut off. If you don’t mind high elevation at 9,961 feet, this might be an enjoyable place to visit and it’s our ghost town with the highest elevation on this list.. It’s also one of Colorado’s maintained ghost towns. 2. Virginia City, Nevada Virginia city grew quickly in the 1850’s and 60’s after the huge discovery of the comstock lode which was a major silver deposit in the sierra nevada mountains,. But once the silver was gone, everyone fled the city. You can actually explore one of our most mysterious ghost towns in the US on google maps. Check out the entire well preserved ghost town of Virginia City, which is also rumored to be one of the most haunted places in the US. Besides some of the modern day vehicles, this place is exactly the way it was over 100 years ago and it’s the most haunted place in Nevada. Some ghost towns are quite as accessible on google maps, and this is one of the more detailed ones we were able to find. Ignore the motorcycles and get a good feel for how historic site would have looked, when miners were sifting the the hills in search of gold. Drop into the Silver Terrace cemetery for a creepy flash from the past!

The claims were large and successful enough to warrant a massive ore bin, a mill/workshop, and other buildings. Massive winch foundations indicate large ore cars with huge amounts of ore were hoisted from the mine depths below. There are prospects and massive waste piles throughout, where gold, pyrites, and garnet can be found.
