Spanish History and Treasures Uinta Mountains Utah
 
05:23
The Lost Josephine Mine Utah, Uinta Mountain’s near Hoyt Peak Estimated worth today $150,000,00.00 + The Josephine de Martinique is supported by historical evidence in the church and civil archives. The "Josephine" mine first appears in records of Spanish Jesuits in 1630. They say it is the richest gold mine in the world, even richer than Tayopa. For 20 years Indian slave labor was used in the mines, and many died as a result of harsh treatment they endured. The 1680 Pueblo Indian uprising known as the Pueblo Revolution forced the priests to abandon the mine when the Spanish when the driven out of the New Mexico territory by the very natives they enslaved. Out of 42 Spanish miners, only 9 made it back to Mexico City. It is said that all mines and and their contents were completely scaled by the natives to discourage the Spanish or anyone from coming back to get the rich gold. Since the Jesuits discovery and abandonment, there's been many other Spanish groups that ventured into the Hoyt Peak area looking for the riches. Many mines have been created over the years and many are still lost just waiting to be discovered. Timothy Draper had been inspired to start treasure hunting at the age of 18 after reading Steve Shaffer’s book “Of Men and Gold”. Steve, Tim, and the Treasures in America team has teamed up to form a great crew to make discoveries and uncover the lost history in America. Steve has spent 30 years in the Uinta Mountains and Hoyt peak of Utah and with their combined forces, they hunt is on. It is said that the treasures of the Spanish is still on Hoyt Peak. Does the Treasures in America team has what it takes to find it? You'll have to stay tuned to our YouTube channel to watch more videos.

Scheelite Queen Mine - Utah - Gold Rush Expeditions - 2015

Website: https://www.goldrushexpeditions.com/ Mining Claims for Sale: https://www.goldrushexpeditions.com/store/mining-claims-for-sale/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GoldRushExpedinc National Bureau of Mines: http://www.nationalbureauofmines.org/ Today on Gold Rush Media, Jessica walks us through the Scheelite Queen Mine in the Amasa Valley, Utah. The Amasa Valley has some of the most historic and richest mines in the state of Utah. The Scheelite Queen is among those mines. All throughout are rich-gold-iron quartz deposits and hundreds of feet of workings. Originally worked as a Gold mine the Scheelite Queen would re-brand itself in the 1940s and 1950s as a Tungsten mine. Given the hefty Government Grants at the time for Tungsten it's not hard to see why. However, don't let that fool you. There is clearly, by way of the rich deposits, still gold left in this mine. If the carbide writings are any indication this mine was worked well through the 1970s. Little Historic treasures are laid out clearly, from the old hand drilled holes to the more recent electrical boxes. The Scheelite Queen is overflowing with financial and historical value. This Mine is a steal for the small time and casual use Miner.

Emerson Horn Silver Mine - Utah - Gold Rush Expeditions - 2015
 
05:56
Website: https://www.goldrushexpeditions.com/ Mining Claims for Sale: https://www.goldrushexpeditions.com/store/mining-claims-for-sale/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GoldRushExpedinc National Bureau of Mines: http://www.nationalbureauofmines.org/ This week on Gold Rush Media Corey Shuman presents the Emerson Horn Silver Mine located in Beaver County, Utah. This mine is a classic example of reclamation gone wrong. Very little of the historical merits of this claim have been preserved and instead backfilled over and torn down. Old tailings piles have been pushed around the site and the headframe chopped and thrown to the side. However, there is still a lot of economic potential in this old mine. The Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining (DOGM) has been "courteous" enough to contract out and build a concrete collar for the mine, as well as place a rebar gate over the shaft entrance. Something that would cost the small time miner a pretty penny has been supplied by the generous taxpayer. Mine Safety is paramount and the rebar has shown its effectiveness as seen by the hole cut in its middle. Just inside is an extensive timbered network with connecting drifts. The Ore veins are rich quartz deposits and are perfect for high grading. Keep a lookout as this mine will be up for sale in the coming week.

The claim covers a series of adits, shafts and a massive open pit. There is also an extensive series of drifts and tunnels that are only accessible from the shaft below the headframe. Those workings have not been touched since the mid 1970s. The workings bear some of the most brilliant fluorspar ever cut. This mine has produced blue, purple and ruby fluorite. There are still countless tons of fluorite to be worked and this may be better than a gold mine for a jewelry maker or specimen collector.
Golden Rhoades - Lost Utah Treasure - Clip #1 of 10
 
09:02
"Golden Rhoades" - the Historical Hunt for the Legendary Lost Rhoades Mines. This film superbly documents the epic search and potential discovery of one of the largest hidden treasures in America. A secret cache believed by many to contain a wealth of gold and natural resources; it has been suggested that the mines may contain an abundance of riches that could cover the national debt. The Rhoades Mines' protected location is believed (speculated) to have been provided to the Mormon church by the Ute Indians in order for the church to survive its difficult pioneering into Utah. The film delves into the myth, fact, and fiction surrounding an amazing tale of adventure, treasure maps, mysterious deaths, and intriguing characters. It provides details and clues to the mines that have eluded thousands of prospectors for over one hundred and fifty years. The film was shot (much in confidential locations) throughout the vast Ute Indian Territory and surrounding Utah Rocky Mountains. (watch all 10 consecutive clips of this exclusive special full length feature documentary release).

Marysvale is well know for preserving its mining heritage. Nestled high in the mountain range west of Marysvale we found the Silver King Mine, which has been beautifully preserved with the exception of the actual mines. We also came across a great insight into the history of the area by wandering off the beaten track a bit, many other interesting sites make this area a must see. However, this area also really showcases how much can be lost from "reclamaition". We found a few OGM tags near closed mines, and also saw a few "caved" adits. There are no real mines to be found anymore, which is sad because thats why the towns and sites are actually there. If you visit this site, please be respectful and leave everything as you find it. This includes relics, the Antiquities Act of 1906 makes it a federal crime to move or disturb any relics or artifacts that could be of historical significance. Gold Rush Expeditions strives to save these historic sites as a part of Utahs heritage. Unfortunately, Utahs Governor, John Huntsman, Jr. does not think these sites deserve saving.

11 Most Massive Mines in the World
 
10:20
From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

Five Mile Pass Mine Shaft Closure Project
 
02:31
Utah has a rich mining history and provides nearly every mineral needed by our modern society, including copper, silver, and uranium. Park City, Eureka, and Moab were established by miners. When the mines no longer produced, they were often simply abandoned leaving hazardous equipment, open shafts, tunnels, and piles of waste rock. The Utah Mined Land Reclamation Act was passed in 1975, making it illegal for mines to be abandoned. In 1977, the federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) was created to fund state regulatory and reclamation efforts. SMCRA created the Abandoned Mine Land (AML) fund to pay for the cleanup of mine lands abandoned before 1977. The fund is financed by a tax on coal mining operations. The Abandoned Mine Reclamation Program (AMRP) works to protect the public from dangers of old mines by sealing off access to openings and cleaning up waste. Old mining sites can be intriguing to unsuspecting explorers but can contain dangerous gases, unstable structures and explosives. Stay out and Stay Alive! Many abandoned mines are also links to Utah's history. We strive to strike a balance between public safety and preserving historic and archaeological resources. We do careful historic research and archaeological work, and we consult with landowners, federal agencies, and the State Historic Preservation Office. The Camp Floyd mining district was organized in 1870 by soldiers who prospected for gold and silver in their spare time. The mines here aren’t as well known as the ones in Mercur, about five miles north, but there was initially a lot of enthusiasm about the deposits. Mining on a large scale started in the mid-1890s. Through accounts in old newspapers we can track enthusiasm and optimism giving way to disappointment and decline. The district was active from about 1895 to 1920. The mines and mills supported a town of a few hundred people; but they were closed down and the town basically abandoned by 1930. None of the mine or town buildings survive. This specific mine claim was known as the Old Fred. We know that by 1899, it was about 240 feet deep, being worked with a horse whim. Despite all the work that went into it, this shaft wasn’t productive or profitable, and it wasn’t a major contributor to the success of the district.

AREA 52, Emery County, Utah - GRE, Inc. Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. 2009
 
09:21
In early 2009, GRE, Inc. was in the San Rafael Swell area doing some inventory of mines and mining sights that are slated for reclamation. Our excursion brought us rather close to an area known as "Area 52". There is a good deal of conspiracy theory regarding this site. It is the White Sands Missle Range. And it appears to be abandoned. However, we invite you watch this and make your own assumption. If you visit these sites, please be respectful and leave everything as you find it. This includes relics and any artifacts you may come across; the Antiquities Act of 1906 makes it a federal crime to move or disturb any relics or artifacts that could be of historical significance. Since 2004, Gold Rush Expeditions has been working to save these historic sites as a part of Utahs heritage. Unfortunately, State and Federal mandates are against us, Utahs Governor, John Huntsman, Jr. has been made aware of the situation, but still does nothing.. His office has been contacted numerous times and still the destruction continues. Additionally, the BLM, and the Office of Surface Mining has disregarded our arguments. Even when presented with hundreds of letters from concerned citizens. Please take a moment to help us save Utahs mining heritage, visit our website at www.goldrushexpeditions.com and click on the "Action Items" to send an email to all of the interested parties with one simple click.

Old Symbols Reveal The Treasure Location
 
11:13
Steve Shaffer, Timothy Draper, and the Treasures in America's team heads out to explain and examine some old spanish tree symbols in the Uinta Mountains in Northern Utah. Some of these symbols are much older than others and they were carved from other treasure hunters and spaniards in the earlier times. The newer ones were curved by others because the originals were on dying tress. That way the secrets and clues can remain around longer to pinpoint the buried caches and mines that have been hidden for over 300 years. Steve and Tim have been working very closely in this area for the last few years because there is still treasures, mines, and old structures still to be found. We wanted to go over the symbols that we knew of so we understand what they are telling us. We estimate that there's still millions of dollars of gold and silver on this mountain. By using the Spanish maps and waybills we have from the 1700's and 1800's, we fell that we are closing in on some very big and historical discoveries. Steve has many, many years of reading Spanish Symbols and he is passing that knowledge along to us so we can further the search. The treasures in America's team spend serval nights on the mountain, exploring and researching the clues. We get new information all the time and that is helping us in this investigation. Please like and subscribe to our page to keep up to date on the progress of this site and hundreds of other one in America. Be safe out there and find your adventure. https://treasuresinamerica.com https://www.facebook.com/TreasuresInAmerica/?ref=bookmarks https://www.facebook.com/groups/TreasuresInUtah/ https://www.facebook.com/steve.shaffer.3367
