#MineExploration of Buckeye Copper Mine & ghost town, in the Gila Bend Mountains, south of Agua Caliente Road, and west of Arlington, Arizona. Buckeye Copper Mine & ghost town is at the foot of Webb Mountain, just north of Woolsey Peak. The site is easily accessible by SUV: https://youtu.be/eEg2reKgbKc . Copper, and associated minerals, were the main product, along with silver & gold.

*TURN ON CLOSED CAPTIONING (CC)* July 19, 2012. I was out this way to check on the opening of the UFO home musuem (aka Golf Ball House). The gates were locked, so I don't know what's going on with that situation. So, anyway, I decided to stop over in Yucca AZ to look around. It's a very small town, just a couple hundred in population. A few structures were interesting to look over and photograph. A Yucca resident talked to me about the town, how it started out as a mine community, mining for copper, silver, gold. Later a gunnery, military training for aircraft pilots, shooting machine guns and such from planes. In modern times it was the area where the Ford and Chrysler proving grounds operated, with I think Chryler still in operation, testing their vehicles. It was getting late in the day, so I didn't cover everything. Saw the itsy bitsy Yucca Post Office, the Yucca Elementary School (with the letter S about falling off the sign), the Yucca Baptist Church, some old Yucca Mission building that looked abandoned long ago, and some old antiquated houses from long ago. This place has very much a feel of an old ghost town with just sprinkles of indications of life. The local bar, the Honolulu Club had two customers at the bar. I went in to get an energy drink, didn't have Monster, so I settled for Red Bull. Anyway, a big hello to all the small independent film and video makers, journalists, youtubers, CrackHeadSally, BillyBobTruckDriver, George4title (G4T), Alex Jones (aka Bonehead Paranoid Fearmonger), Peter Schiff (stuttering and repetitively talking about the Fed printing too much money), Marc Faber (who laughs at Americans), Jim Rogers (Chinese American Citizen Billionaire), as well to all the tons of friends everywhere around the world in which I am way too busy to talk to. Remember everyone, Buy Silver and Gold. Why? Because millions of adult children living in the basement of their Mom's house believe it is the best thing to do. I may be out in the area again to do some metal detecting with the Fisher Gold Bug 2 (II) metal detector, maybe find some gold nuggets, relics, etc No, this high definition (HD) video is not about Yucca Valley California (CA).

#MineExploration of some old mining claims near Copper Creek, above the Hassayampa River, in Yavapai County, Arizona's Prescott National Forest. Includes a friendly encounter with an Arizona Black Rattlesnake (crotalus oreganus cerberus). Other than the Climax Mine ( https://youtu.be/T2fIF7uHEBw ), all the shafts and adits I previously found were impenetrable. This complex was extensive -- according to the 1916 mining data book, over 4000 feet of workings -- but our exploration was cut short due to lack of illumination. ;-) We shall return! p.s. If you can identify the smelter, please reply below ...

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.

What an unexpected discovery! Paul and I never imagined finding what we found deep in this abandoned copper mine in Arizona. The Warren-Bisbee Mine's obscure entrance was basically a rabbit hole and didn't look too promising. However, once we gained entry by sliding in on our backs, the tunnels opened up and were surprisingly extensive. One tunnel led us deep into the mine to an inner area where we found -- something. Something impressive. Something rare that I've only seen a few times in abandoned mines over the last seven years or so. And it's all here in this video. Enjoy! Don't forget: New videos are released at midnight (Pacific Time) on the 1st, 10th, and 20th of each month. View and use the information in my videos at your own risk. All abandoned mines (especially the ones in my videos) are very dangerous and should not be entered under any circumstances. No potentially life-threatening, dangerous, or legal decisions and assumptions should be made based on information in my videos. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

One many old mining towns that dot Az. The last time I passed thru, you went right thru old town. I was hoping to be able to walk around both Clifton and Morenci and record. 'Good Guys' is a term I used to describe Az. Highway Patrolman. Growing up here in Az. in the 50s. The Highway Patrolman were more than highway patrolman, they were part of the Rural Communities. And on long two lane highways (?) some Dirt. If you broke down, they were the ones you looked for first for help.(68 MPH in a 50 MPH zone)

Ruby AZ was once a thriving mining town, during its time the Ruby mines produced gold, silver, lead, zinc and copper. Today it is a ghost town, all that remains are a few buildings, and the tailings from the mining operations. In this video you will see the Mill, Assay Office, Warehouse, Bunkhouses, Duff House, Dr. Woodard House, Morton House along with other various locations and unknown buildings.

Hiking from the Glen Oaks pullout, north of Wilhoit, Arizona, down to a #MineExploration of Climax Mine, then back up Hassayampa River and Copper Creek to U.S. Highway 89, on November 1, 2013, from 0800-1600. Lots of mine shafts and equipment in the area, with the Climax Mine being at least semi-safe to explore. Climax mine is located at lat 34.412252 , long -112.524001. My flashlight crapped out on me, so I did not go in as far as these guys: http://www.communitywalk.com/azurbanex#00042XTO . Despite almost being sprayed by a skunk, I still stayed with the shot. :-) Triplog: http://prestonm.com/climax-mine/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/PrestonMcMurry Added 2013-11-04: I am told the "unnamed mine" has a name, the Catoctin Mine.

The Verde Combination claim is set in the high hills adjacent to the historic mining town of Jerome, Arizona. Much of Jerome and the surrounding mines is and has been private for many, many years. The area is known for its deposits of copper, silver, gold and lead. The Verde Combination was so named for the Verde Combination company who originally located the mines.

#MineExploration of Webber Canyon and the Webber Mine in the Harcuvar Mountains, between the McMullen Valley and Butler Valley in the Arizona Outback of La Paz County. According to mindat.org, the Webber Mine, also known as the Congress Mine, was an Ag-Cu (silver & copper) mine last operated by the Commonwealth Mining Co. in 1923. The workings are located just below E C P Peak.

1.23.2013. I decided to walk out to some mountains today and found several old abandoned gold mines from the past. I didn't see any official claim markers or indications that the area was other than BLM (Bureau of Land Management). An old post at one gold mine had written on it, 'Gold Lake Discovery 1/1/13', which I'm not certain whether someone wrote that just a few weeks ago on New Year's Day, or that it indicates an initial discovery in 1913. This is high definition video footage for Youtube.

Wandering through Gleeson, Courtland, and Pearce, Arizona - America’s Coolest Ghost Towns. We search for the lost towns from the mining booms during the 1800s. We take you through some of the ruins and share exciting facts about each town. We wandered to the towns of Gleeson, Courtland and Pearce Arizona. These towns were once boom towns when Gold, Silver, Copper, and even Turquoise were discovered in the hills. As quick as these towns were built they were abandon and almost lost to time!

Hiking from Forest Road 349, just southwest of Miami, to Mead Canyon, up a branch of Pinal Creek to a #MineExploration of the Gibson Mine. All that remains of Bellevue ghost town (1906-1927) is the old mill; the rest has been plowed under. There is a barn of more recent vintage, but that looks like it has not been used in years either. Direct road access is blocked by the MF Ranch, so I had to hike in. Triplog & photoset @ http://hikearizona.com/photoset=28498 . (2014-01-22)

The second of our series visiting the remains of the town, smelter and forgotten mine at Anyox. Once a bustling town of 3,000 people the mine closed in 1935 and it is now completely abandoned. Visit a massive rock crusher still underground, fly over the site with a drone and visit the cemetery with us.

Watch in HD! My buddy and I exploring the Copper Creek, Arizona mine ruins on our Honda quads. His quad is a 1997 Honda Foreman 400 4x4, full-time four-wheel-drive with 13,600+ miles on the odometer. My quad is a 2016 Honda Rancher 420 4x4 DCT EPS, TRX420FA2 model with 300 miles on the odometer at the start of the ride. By the end both quads showed an increase of 30 miles on the odometers. Both machines did great, no problems. The mine ruins are very cool, I highly recommend this ride. This is the 23rd video on my channel of my 2016 Honda Rancher 4x4 DCT EPS (TRX420FA2) since we bought it new in December of 2015 from Western Honda of Scottsdale, AZ. I bought it from Western because they gave me the lowest out-the-door price in the state on the model I wanted.

This place has slowly been destroyed by idiots. The Forrest service has put a gate up across the trail a mile before the mine, so you have to hike the last mile, unless you bring a horse with you. Good qwad riding, Budweiser drinking idiot filter. I doubt it'll be here in 10 years in any case. When I first visited Martniez in 07' it was mostly complete and only had a few bullet holes. The coke ovens are closed down completely now too. People suck.

These two are a little longer than I like to post but oh well. I split them in two so they are a little easier to digest. This part is Bumble Bee road to the town of Bumble Bee and on to Cleator. Check out part 2 for Crown King. Some nice Arizona dirt road action.

Hecla, Wyoming; an incredibly short-lived base of operations for three mines that bared the town's name. As well as a mining outpost, Hecla was also a candidate for a Union Pacific rail-stop, but unfortunately for Hecla and its population consisting of only miners and their wives, it never gained enough attention. As the mines closed due to lack of outsider commercial interest, Hecla's population dwindled down to a fat zero. Following the Civil War, a need for copper developed. During the period Between 1867 and 1884, the Calumet & Hecla Mining Company of Michigan produced half of the country's copper. Between 1889 and 1900, the Company paid out $57 million in dividends. Thus, there developed a copper rush to areas in which copper deposits might be found. One of those areas was Happy Jack. In 1879, with the discover of copper and gold along Upper Crow Creek, the Silver Crown Mining District was formed. Beginning in the 1880's a series of mines opened in the District. Mines included the Hecla Mines, owned by the Hecla Copper & Golf Mining, Milling & Smelting Co.; the Lenox; the Julia Lode; the Agata Prospect, which produced gold; the two Arizona Mines; the Barlett Copper King; the Fairview; the Great Standard Group owned by the Great Standard Copper Mining Co.; the Kopper Krown Mines; the London; and the Louise. ￼ Tailing Dump, Strong Copper Mining Company, Upper Horse Creek, 1906. The Strong Copper Mining Company was organized in 1903 and was capitalized at $1,000,000. The mine used an 80 h.p. steam hoisting plant. By 1908, the mine was idle. William Ferguson opened the King David Mines (later known as the Comstocks) about 1 1/2 miles northwest of Hecla and established a smelter. Most of the mines were centered on Granite Canyon or in an area along Middle Crow Creek south of present day Happy Jack Road. ￼ Smelter, Hecla, Wyoming, undated. Photo courtesy Ferguson Archives. The stamping mill was constructed by the Adams Copper Mining and Reduction Co. It was later sold to the Hecla Copper & Gold Mining & Smelting Co. The company owned some 14 claims, the townsite of Hecla, a millsite, a smelter, concentrating and leeching play, assay lab and office building. In 1904, the company changed its name to the Hecla Mining Co. The company subsequently changed its name again to the Hecla Consolidated Mines Co. Although, there may have been some spectactular finds of native gold, on an average the ore in the area only assays at about 0.02 ounces of gold per ton and the copper at only 0.2%. The larger outside companies had financial difficulties. By 1906 The Great Standard Copper Mining Co. was broke notwithstanding its touting of the discovery of platinum deposits. ￼ This is the general area i researched Hecla to be in. However i would expect to see mining equipment rusting away, and only building foundations left. I found the opposite here. I will try to do some more research and exploring to see if this actually is Hecla and attempt to find the remains of the mine. My Patreon is up! https://www.patreon.com/chrishaefner?alert=2

When you think of Arizona mining, copper probably comes to mind, or maybe gold. But the Valley is home to a rare gem, which is only found in two places on earth. Right here and in Siberia! As Jared Dillingham found, the mine here is only slightly easier to get to.

The Big Eye Mine and its cabin remain a very popular hiking and jeeping destination in the far reaches of the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge and its Castle Dome Mountains in Yuma County, Arizona. This particular video of my documentation and exploration of Arizona's Big Eye Mine was originally filmed and posted in August of 2012. I am re-posting the same video again after making some minor edits for continuity and running time. This video highlights the well-maintained cabin, the many various artifacts in it, and provides some history behind the mine. I also explore and document the main Big Eye Mine tunnel as well as an upper level higher on the mountain. Enjoy this fascinating glimpse back into our mining history! #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration #BigEyeMine
