Take a tour-Capital Prize gold mine Georgetown, Colorado 2018
 
38:22
Enjoy this tour of the Capital Prize gold mine located in Georgetown, Colorado. This recently opened mine takes you a incredible 1,000 feet into the mountain. Despite over 10,000 mines in the State of Colorado, very few offer tours. This was one of the better tours I have been on with many branching tunnels, and a drill demonstration. Thanks to the tour operator for allowing me to film this video. Filmed in August, 2018. More information can be found on the website below. https://www.capitalprizegoldmine.com

Finding Lost Gold! Colorado Springs, Colorado gold prospecting
 
05:32
As always, Mountainman is out and about! We went up the mountain once again, and this time we were looking for lost gold! There have been so many claims in America since the early years of the gold rushes that its hard to believe there is still gold up on the mountain. We use the LR2000 reports program to locate old, voided, or abandoned claims and mines. The claims are never easy to find in the bush bet perseverance wins out in the end. This old abandoned claim was found by the barely visible depression left in the ground. We crushed ore and tested the gravels in the washes in the area. It was a small load claim from the 40's an hour and a half hike strait up the side of the mountain. We are thinking about staking a claim in the area and are keeping the location under wraps until we locate our favorite spot! As always, leave us a comment if you wanna know more or subscribe to get our latest videos!

Take a short trip with me to Dawson City, Canada. Have a look at how the "average, not for TV" miner gets gold. No staged arguments, breakdowns, or deadlines. No scripted drama, or ridiculous million ounce goals. Just average miners trying to make a few bucks and have a little fun doing it. The mining season lasts from May to the first of October, or as soon as the water freezes. Thanks for watching. This is a copy of a previously uploaded video. I was forced to re upload this video due to technical reasons, sorry for any inconvenience.

There's still gold in these hills The gold rushes of the 19th century have long since ended, but there are still plenty of places you can hunt for the precious metal using a shovel, pan, metal detector and more. In fact, recreational gold mining is a pastime these days for many people, and for good reason: the largest nugget ever found in California was discovered by an amateur. Here are some key locations worldwide that you can still prospect for the yellow metal – you never know, you may get lucky and strike it rich.

Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine Tour, Cripple Creek ColoraDo Pt 1
 
09:59
This is a condensed version of the tour featuring highlights of the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine. The first claim in the cripple creek Colorado district struck by a woman. Unheard of in the late 1800s. She was an Iowa woman who had never heard the bugle of an elk. Coming across a small herd, she followed them hastily up a hillside. Finding herself winded, she sat upon an outcropping of rock. When she looked down, she couldn't believe her eyes and leaped into action once again. You'll hear our guide describing cross cuts, equipment and upgrades, lives of the miners, see other minerals found within the mines and more...We hope you enjoy!!!

The Seniorita Mine is about 4 miles north of Ouray, Colorado. The claim has a large track coming from what appears to have once been a haulage tunnel. Piping and track indicate a large adit was once on site. The mine has not been worked in a long time, and there is little historical information available, but it is known to have been worked for gold as early as 1893 with various owners since.

Argo Gold Mine

n 1893 construction of the Argo Tunnel Began. It would be 17 years before it would reach Central City, over 4.5 miles away. The tunnel would provide water drainage, ventilation and economical transportation of the gold bearing ore from the many mines it would intersect along the way. The Argo Mill was constructed to process the gold bearing ore from these mines. When completed, the Argo would be the largest mill of its type in the world. The mill processed over 100 million dollars of gold ore at the old time prices of $18.00 to $35.00 per ounce and stands today as a memorial to the hard rock miners of the day when GOLD WAS KING!

Colorado 2013: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine, Cripple Creek
 
16:39
Coming West to Colorado from Ottumwa, Iowa, arriving with her husband Henry, son Perry and daughter Elizabeth, the Gortner family first settled on North Nevada Street in Colorado. Springs. In the spring of 1891 Mollie's son Perry arrived in the Cripple Creek area employed as a surveyor assigned to map mining claims of this country's newest and overlooked frontier. With all news of the day focused on Cripple Creek's gold. Mollie loaded the family wagon with supplies and joined the next wagon train heading west up Ute Pass to visit her son. After a four day trip, Mollie was relieved to find Perry had completed construction of a half log half canvas field tent. Mollie wasted little time setting up housekeeping. In September of that year (1891), Perry while surveying upper Poverty Gulch, saw a huge herd of elk. Later he told Mollie of the herd so she headed out to see for herself. As she made her way up Poverty Gulch (three hundred yards past Cripple Creek's first gold strike - Bob Womack's Gold King Mine), winded Mollie decided to rest. Looking downward, as she caught her breath, Mollie noticed an interesting rock formation that winked back at her. Using a rock to break off a sample, she could hardly believe her eyes, the outcropping was pure gold laced in quartz. With her heart racing Mollie nonchalantly hid gold samples amongst her clothing, she had to be calm, and there were a number of prospectors in the area. Earlier that day Mollie had mingled with Bob Womack whom had overlooked her find for more than a dozen years prospecting an area he had nicknamed Poverty Gulch. By her determined act, Mollie Kathleen Gortner became the first woman in the Gold Camp to discover gold and strike a claim in her own name. This was clearly a bold move out of step with the times. Most men of the time, only named their horses, jack asses, and mines after their women, it was very uncommon to let a woman claim something of such value. Even after her mine was in production and when visited by the National Geological Survey, it's authors entered their report of the mine being "Discovered by Mr. M.C. Gortner" Mr. Gortner's name was Henry - - - Mollie's name was Mary Catherine Gortner. Mollie Kathleen Gortner Died in 1917. Henry would later die of a broken heart one short year later
