you folk have some really pristine mines, most are wet and full of rotten timbers, lucky you, kudos for the nice clear vids.

at 34:02 wouldnt that suck if someone threw a rock down while he was looking up and saying, wow, what a trip :-/
Mike Gross (15 days ago)
I can't imagine removing anything worth all that digging but there must have been something!
james f o'hare (25 days ago)
That mine looks as though it's had at one time or another had a couple of Flash fires. If you note the big Stope beside the ladder on the 300 level the rock was all blackened as where walls of some of the drifts you walked though. good job nice video thanks.

A lot of times i see those red tags hanging on the seeling;is it a tag that they put to find the way back or so?or just to say that the area is checked and save?belgian greetings!

Do you ever make it exciting for the next guy to go through by taking some 24K gold paint with you and find collapse and then paint a nice big gold vein so the next guys get to have a real gold rush feeling for a moment? Leave a few stones that look like gold nuggets.

Doug Prather just went, it's sold out ..seems the neighborhood huffers got their first,Damm!
Doug Prather (3 days ago)
+jquest43 I got some good news for you, Home depot has a sale on 24k Gold paint, you can get it there for $2.99 a can. You might want to stock up while on sale and then go out and make someone feel rich for a moment in time.
jquest43 (4 days ago)
Doug Prather it can be done ( I'm a gold painter) but the cans cost 150,000 each!!

Unusual that they used 1 1/2" wood as ore cart rails. It seems to work as its fairly dry there.

Even with hardly any artifacts this is a mine with a lot of caractor. The amount of rock removed was remarkable. It's too bad that in a hundred years the ladders and false floors will still look new but will have collapsed, blocking this mine off to the curious with only your video to see what it was like. Was that a dynomite box at 5:00? It looked about that size but wood boxes in western U.S. mines are very rare. I particularly liked the mini ore chute at 8:00 that was surely built for 'Bring your children to work day' so they can try to do daddy's job. Great video.

Tunnels are great. More interesting if a person could point out Gold/Silver or whatever on rock deposits.

IM JUST SO GLAD TO SEE COME OUT THE EXITS, MY GUT CHURNS ALL THE TIME YOUR DOWN THERE. GOOD LUCK GUYS THANKS CAMILLE AUSTRALIA

I find certain things in life inconceivable and how men could dig through solid rock in such an extensive fashion is beyond me. I would think blasting would just loosen and fracture everything and make it all super unsafe. Oh well, obviously men in the 1800s did this easily and whenever they wanted to. Shows what I know.

they used nails like that up in to the 40s some people still use them, in WV they burn down old buildings just for the mails,
John Moses Browning (10 months ago)
Great mine and taping! However, using terms like "stopy, stopomatic, stopage and stopilicous" are sophomoric and make you appear childish.
Leona Caran (11 months ago)
God can you imagine working in these places hundreds of years ago without torches? Having to use lanterns and things to burn up what little oxygen they had. Are you guys ever afraid you'll get turned around or lost in any of these really windey maze like mines?
jquest43 (4 days ago)
Leona Caran back then it was all done by touch.
Leona Caran (11 months ago)
"I like stale air" made me laugh. Man, if you were a monster wanting somewhere to hide away this is EXACTLY where you'd go and why I'd never explore a mineshaft, too spooky but thank you guys for making these videos so I can explore with you from the comfort of my bed!

Hmmmm.... False floor? Let me stomp on it. Really??
Matt Paulson (6 months ago)
Agreed, man. First thing I do when I hear a false floor is get the hell off.

Too bad you went political, I wish I had a leader that was putting Canada first.......I remember when we worked with the USA and I had a real job in a aluminum diecast factory making automotive castings like transmission cases for the f150, now l live below the poverty line.
Lost Pony (1 year ago)
lookit the watermarks on the tires at 53:53. It's been full of water down there. But the deep bass of the false floor at 360 suggests there is a lot more void below that point, maybe the shaft goes down quite a bit further? at least one more level? there is a "open hole".
Lost Pony (1 year ago)
definitely a mine full of the lowest quality ore: politicians
Lost Pony (1 year ago)
24:00 kinda deathish is right, don't die Boxy that woods f'ed up
Lost Pony (1 year ago)
7 minutes in the wood use seems really freaky, can it even be called timbering?
Lost Pony (1 year ago)
pretty nasty wins right there at the beginning.

mr cr (1 year ago)
I love your show think about the men who built this, do you think to days people could do the same using the same tools i wonder

Is that gold ore all over the walls?

Nice job on the disco bat.
Lisandro (1 year ago)
I've heard that when there is no reverberation inside a tunnel section is because such section is it's made of unstable stuff like gravel. Be careful in those. At 4:55 is it a stope or a collapse? I can't tell from that angle. Nice exploration ;) Wich camera do you use to record this?
Evilla Dollyz (1 year ago)
LOL @ the swinging bat and staying alive...

1:01:25 probably a rest area for the miners.

I was thinking it was how they trapped the monster...but it's open...

You can find the manufacture date of modern DOT approved tires by looking at the last four digits of the DOT impression. 0100 indicate the tire was manufactured in the first week of the year 2000. 010 <| indicates a tire made in the first week of 1990 and 010 would indicate a tire made in the first week of 1980 if the standard existed at that time.

Shango, those steel plates at intersections are called "Turn Plates", for turning the ore car from one track onto another. Basically, it works like a stationary turntable. - <Doc>
Mine Explorers (1 year ago)
Cool thanks, what did I call them slick sheet or slip plate or something. This mine was a bit older than most of the mines in this area. I cant say i have seen those or a shaft filled with 100 feet of used tires either.

cmon guys your better than stomping on false floors. Big mine lots of deep winzes and stopes. A lot of that timber looks VERY new. Be safe you guys.
Great video and was a long one as well but sure did enjoy the explore in the mine mate felt like I was there as well.

Excellent video,thanks shango ! Like the spotlight,how many lumens is that thing?
Pretty long video! Interesting mine you should consider getting ropes, harness and do some SRT it enables you to get farther into the mines safely we really enjoy the ropes when we need them

I would not call it a rat phobia......I just don't like rats!

Hey Frank have you bought your own chopper yet? What's with all the rat phobia? :)
S Davis (2 years ago)
WAAAAAYYYY too much messing about on false floors.  Stomping on them to hear the sound?  This mine obviously has some VERY deep pits under the floors, flirting with the angel of death several different times in this video.  Making a video isn't worth your life guys.
Danish Native (2 years ago)
Thanks Shango. Nice colors. You called it swiss cheese but I was thinking more of a maze. I would easily get lost in there. Happy Halloween Party LA style.
Corinna T Roberts76 (2 years ago)
Wow, sounds cool with headphones 🎧, I can hear you breathing really clear like your beside me & it does feel like I'm there with you. LOL Mad sound when the rock was thrown down the hole. 😀👍🏻
Corinna Roberts can i breathe deeply in your ear?

Epic adventure. Lots to see in there. The bat was rockin out. Undead. I wonder how long before the wood rots underneath the muddy false floors! Explorers beware...

Thanks for another great trip guys.  A lot of hard work in cutting those adits and shafts, possibly back breaking work.

Love this! One of your best. Looks like this mine was worked in several time periods.
