Silver Mining Documentary - How Silver Is Mined and Reformed - Prehistoric TV Silver is a chemical element with symbol Ag (from the Latin argentum, derived from the Greek ὰργὀς: "shiny" or "white") and atomic number 47. A soft, white, lustrous transition metal, it exhibits the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal. The metal is found in the Earth's crust in the pure, free elemental form ("native silver"), as an alloy with gold and other metals, and in minerals such as argentite and chlorargyrite. Most silver is produced as a byproduct of copper, gold, lead, and zinc refining. Silver has long been valued as a precious metal. Silver metal is used in many bullion coins, sometimes alongside gold: while it is more abundant than gold, it is much less abundant as a native metal. Its purity is typically measured on a per-mille basis; a 94%-pure alloy is described as "0.940 fine". As one of the seven metals of antiquity, silver has had an enduring role in most human cultures. Silver is used in numerous applications other than currency, such as solar panels, water filtration, jewellery, ornaments, high-value tableware and utensils (hence the term silverware), and as an investment medium (coins and bullion). Silver is used industrially in electrical contacts and conductors, in specialized mirrors, window coatings, and in catalysis of chemical reactions. Silver compounds are used in photographic film and X-rays. Dilute silver nitrate solutions and other silver compounds are used as disinfectants and microbiocides (oligodynamic effect), added to bandages and wound-dressings, catheters, and other medical instruments.

Explore the famous silver mines of Potosi with Breaking Borders. Historians estimate that nearly 8 million men have died since the 16th century working in the Cerro Rico mines of Potosi. The mines were so important and rich that the Spanish were able to bankroll their empire with the silver found in this exact mine. The silver was then taken by llama train to the Pacific coast, shipped north to Panama City and then across the atlantic to Spain.

Hello and welcome to my channel. While traveling on the South Klondike Highway from Carcross Yukon to Skagway Alaska, you will notice the old mining structures. Those are the Venus Mine Mill on your left and looking up the steep hill on your right you will see the ore tramway towers from 1906 mining operation. There were two newer mines operating in 1970-1979 and have been rehabilitated. Inspired by the book Fractured Veins & Broken Dreams written by Murray Lundberg, I explored what was left from the old days. Time however has left its mark on the aging mining structures. This video presentation captures the mining history in the Yukon. Please subscribe to my channel and become a supporter.

The Land of Enchantment still echos with voices from its colorful past. These voices speak especially clearly from the ghost towns, mining camps, and little-known places that populate New Mexico's landscape. New Mexico's story is rich with history, from the Ancient Puebloan Indians, to Spanish explorers, pioneers traveling along the Santa Fe Trail, and prospectors in the 19th century. These many folks left their "footprints," not only along the many old trails in the "Land of Enchantment," but also on the many ruins and ghost towns that remain. Cuchillo, established by ranchers and farmers in the 1850s, was named for a nearby creek and a local Apache chief, Cuchillo Negro (Black Knife). Midway between the mines at Chloride and Winston and the railroad at Engle, it flourished as a stage stop and trade center from the 1880s to the 1930s. Charming original buildings still stand, including the Cuchillo Bar and Store, and San Jose Catholic Church, built in 1907 Chloride was founded in 1880. Englishman Harry Pye had discovered silver ore there in the late 1870s, and soon after Pye was killed by Apaches, word of the silver find got out. Despite the threat of Indian attacks Chloride grew to over 3,000 people. In its heyday it had nine saloons, a general store, a dry goods store, a millinery shop, a restaurant, a butcher shop, a candy store, a pharmacy, a Chinese laundry, a photography studio, a school, and two hotels. The Black Range newspaper was printed in Chloride from 1882 to 1896. Of the nearly 500 surveyed mines and prospect holes in the Apache Mining District, a dozen or so made big mines, including the Silver Monument, the U.S. Treasury, and the St. Cloud, which is still in operation, though not mining silver. The demise of Chloride began with the Silver Panic of 1893 and was hastened by the presidential election of 1896, which resulted in a drastic decline in silver prices. Many of Chloride's original structures still stand. The old Pioneer Store is now a museum; next door the former Monte Cristo Saloon and Dance Hall houses a gift shop and gallery featuring work by local artists. Both are open seven days a week from 10am-4pm. Harry Pye's cabin is available as a vacation rental. Other landmarks in this tiny town (population 11) include the 200-year-old Hanging Tree and Doodle Dum, the workshop of longtime resident Cassie Hobbs (19041989). Hillsboro was born in 1877 when gold was found at the nearby Opportunity and Ready Pay mines. Despite fierce Indian attacks, the town grew, becoming the county seat in 1884. Area mines produced more than $6 million in gold and silver, and by 1907 the town had a population of 1,200. Today, this charming, peaceful village of a hundred souls, which boasts flower-filled yards and old cottonwoods lining the main street, offers many enticements, including gift shops; restaurants; artist studios and galleries; the remains of the old county courthouse; the Black Range Museum; Union Church; and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. Hillsboros Heritage Day is held annually on the day before Mother's Day. Kingston was founded when a rich lode of silver ore was discovered at the Solitaire in 1882. It grew rapidly and was the largest town in the territory—and one of the wildest in the Wild West. The town soon offered all of the trappings of civilization and culture. Numerous hotels played host to the likes of Mark Twain, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Black Jack Ketchum. Stage lines served all major routes, and the town supported twenty-three saloons,some of which advertised fresh oysters 24 hours a day! The town also had 14 grocery and general stores; a brewery; three newspapers; and an Opera House where the Lillian Russell Troupe once performed. Albert Bacon Fall and Ed Doheny of the Teapot Dome Scandal got their start in Kingston. From those glory days, the old Assay Office and the remains of the Victorio Hotel have been renovated as private residences. The Black Range Lodge, a bed and breakfast, offers accommodations in a setting of massive stonewalls and log-beamed ceilings constructed from the ruins of what once was Pretty Sam's Casino. Some Kingston residents offer straw-bale and natural building workshops

Amazing Silver Mines in the World - History Documentary Silver mining is the source removal of silver by mining. Silver is discovered in native type quite seldom as nuggets, however much more normally combined with sulfur, arsenic, antimony, or chlorine and also in various ores such as argentite (Ag2S), chlorargyrite ("horn silver," AgCl), as well as galena (a lead ore usually containing substantial quantities of silver). As silver is typically found along with these or alloyed with various other metals such as gold, it generally needs to be additional removed out via combinations or electrolysis. Silver mining has been taken on given that very early times. As silver is a rare-earth element often used for coins, its mining has traditionally commonly been financially rewarding. As with various other precious metals such as gold, recently found deposits of silver ore have stimulated silver hurries of miners seeking their lot of moneys. In current centuries, large down payments were discovered as well as extracted in the Americas, affecting the growth and also property development of Mexico, Andean nations such as Bolivia, Chile, and also Peru, in addition to Canada and also the Usa. check our channel s://..com/channel/UCnAK... visit our website ://mandkinddocumentary.blogspot.com/

Fortuna Silver Mines Inc. (TSX: FVI) is an emerging low cost silver producer in Latin America with operations in Peru and Mexico. Fortuna is on schedule and budget to commission its second mine, the San Jose silver - gold Mine in the third quarter of 2011. Goldalert.com visits with Fortuna's CEO, Jorge Ganoza, on-site in Oaxaca, Mexico. The San Jose silver - gold Mine, with expected annual production of 5 million Ag Eq oz at a cash cost less than US$ 6.20 / Ag Eq oz, will dramatically increase shareholder exposure to silver. Once the San Jose Mine is in operation at full design capacity, Fortuna's annual production will be 7 million ounces of Ag Eq plus base metal credits from the Caylloma Mine in Peru. Fortuna's cash cow to date is the Caylloma Mine, but the commissioning of the San Jose silver - gold Mine in the third quarter of 2011 will catapult FVI into the exclusive class of multi-asset profitable silver producers. With silver prices near all-time highs, emerging silver producer stocks and silver investments such as Fortuna Silver Mines, represent an attractive alternative to silver and gold ETFs such as the GDX.

REAL DE CATORCE, SAN LUIS POTOSI, MEXICO - Hola amigos! We have finally made it to the former silver mining town of Real de Catorce in the state of San Luis Potosi in Mexico! This is a feature length video detailing a location which gives you an authentic feel of the Mexican desert. If you'e planning a Mexico trip or Mexico vacation in 2019, San Luis Potosi and Real de Catorce have to be on your itinerary! Real de Catorce is located approx 2700 metres above sea level north of Matehuala in San Luis Potosi state. It rose to prominence in the late 1700s when silver was discovered, which became the main industry in the area. Once the early 1900s came, the price of silver had plummeted, resulting in the town being largely abandoned. You can visit Real de Catorce on a tour/bus from San Luis Potosi or Matehuala or do it yourself as I did (My Airbnb host in Cedral drove me). There is a bus back at 1540 and at other times throughout the day (you get a small bus through the Ogarrio tunnel then change to a Grupo Senda bus to Matehuala). You can also visit the ghost town higher up by horse, or (As I did), walk! It takes about 1-1.5hrs depending on fitness.

Bayhorse was a town built to support the various mines in the area. Mining began to boom in the late 1870's and Bayhorse used modern technology to increase profitability of ore reduction. Named Bayhorse because a couple prospectors met a gentleman with two bay horses that told them of rich mining prospects here. In the 1890's, silver and lead prices dropped and ultimately closed this operation. The town supported 300-500 people until that time and work in these mines slowed until it closed completely some time in the early 20th century. Nearly 100,000 tons of ore had been removed from the mines here. In 2006, Bayhorse became a unit of the Idaho State Parks dept. They have done a great job of preserving this site. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Check out the Idaho State Parks page on this and other park sites https://parksandrecreation.idaho.gov/parks/land-yankee-fork Want to help me continue making these videos?

Well, here it is… I’ve explored hundreds of abandoned mines now and I’ve seen some amazing things, but nothing has been as awesome for me as stepping into the bottom of that gigantic natural cavern. I will never forget that. I can only imagine what the miners thought when they first punched in to the cave and tried to gain an understanding of how huge it was with only the benefit of candles or carbide lamps. Interestingly, the reports I read on this mine indicated that the floor of this cavern was covered in staggeringly rich oxidized ore. So, the natural processes that formed the cave (presumably water passing through the mountain?) left behind a rich reward for the pioneering miners that discovered the cave. The geological features inside the cavern lead me to believe that there was a fair amount of water that flowed through despite this mine being in the desert. Pretty interesting geology, no? In a way, it is a shame that the miners were not more concerned with aesthetics because it would have been nice to see how massive the cavern was originally. However, sentimentality aside, the miners must have been delighted to fill that cavern up with waste rock rather than having to haul it all of the way outside. Everything that we were climbing around on in there was all waste rock. Does anyone disagree with me or have another idea about that unusual two-toned pile I climbed up? Given how finely ground it was, it sure looked like tailings. The miners dropped tons and tons of waste rock into the huge cavern, why not tailings from the surface as well? Even with the benefit of time, I still don’t have a better idea on that one. It's a good thing that air flowing out reminded us of that last “little” drift we hadn’t explored, wasn’t it? We were packed up and were heading out… Ha, that would have sucked to go all of the way there and to have missed that cavern!! A slight correction – in the video, I mention the collapse that we saw the other side of “in the last video.” It was actually the second video rather than the last video (that was a huge level). We’re not done with this mine yet! The fifth and final video in this series will be posted next Wednesday and there is some great stuff still to be seen. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Given what a labyrinth this mine is, I thought it would be useful to use that deep winze (or capped shaft) as a point of reference for you. This level is huge! As you can see, it has taken almost two full videos for this level alone. And it still isn’t quite finished yet! However, with the many pockets and twists and turns, it took a while for us to cover everything. Given the size of this level as well as the many ore chutes, it seems a pretty safe bet that a lot of ore was extracted from this section. It also seemed as if there was a lot of mixing of the older and newer workings on this level of the mine. In other words, it seemed as if there were a lot of sections where the miners from the 20th century punched into workings - or overlapped with workings - from the miners in the 1800s. It was somewhat difficult to tell given how many boards had come down, but I believe there is a good chance that we saw examples of square set timbering on two occasions on this level. Square set timbering is the use of what are essentially wooden cubes stacked on top of each other to fill a void or cavity. They can be used to support enormous spaces (which this mine has an abundance of). I pointed out what I thought might have been square set timbering in the video, but didn’t mention how rare it is. To put it in perspective, I’ve explored hundreds of abandoned mines now and that is the first time I have ever seen square set timbering. How about that yellow portable air compressor? At least I think that’s what it was… I love the ingenuity of miners. Every mine we go to that still has some old mining equipment around, will have a good display of unique innovations from the miners – something created on the spot that we haven’t seen anywhere else. If you’ve been enjoying this series so far, you’re going to love the next video. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

I was so happy to find a relic from World War 1 here! When I was driving from California to Ohio, I passed Cuervo, New Mexcio, near Tucumcari, New Mexico on the I-40. I saw some people walking around the ruins and immediately knew I wanted to return to see this place! On my way back from Ohio, I stopped for one hour to see what I could find. Mind you, I searched online for any New Mexico laws forbidding metal detecting in Ghost towns, specifically Cuervo. I found nothing forbidding me to 1) Be on the property, and 2) to metal detect there. There were some buildings in Cuervo that had "No Trespassing" signs, but the buildings I went to did not have them. While I really hoped I'd find something silver or at least a wheat penny or 2, I was surprised and elated to find a World War 1 button about 6 to 8 inches deep in the dark red dirt. What a great trip! Yay!

Video footage and stills of a recent trip to the ghost town, as well as very old photos of the Kelly, New Mexico mining town in its heyday. Kelly is purported to be haunted, and I did have a strange personal experience during this visit, however, I didn't catch anything on camera. http://seasonofshadows.com/

Travel Video Discover San Sebastian Jalisco Mexico PromovisionPV.com [email protected] Up behind Puerto Vallarta in the Sierra Madre Mountains is an old mining town that has a completely different atmosphere than Puerto Vallarta. At 4,500 ft. with pine trees, the air is crisp and clear and at night it can be quite cold. In the surrounding valley you'll find cattle, corn and coffee plantations. This local coffee is excellent and you can sample and purchase it in town. Founded in 1605, San Sebastian del Oeste was one of the gold and silver mining centers of Mexico. At one time a provincial capital of 40,000 people, you will find it strangely deserted with only about 600 people living there now. Puerto Vallarta, San Sebastian The mines were, in part, responsible for the start of Puerto Vallarta. Then know as Las Peñas and consisting of just a few huts at the mouth of the Rio Cuale, it was used to supply the mines with salt which was taken by mules up to San Sebastian and other mines in the High Sierras and used in the smelting process. The silver and gold from the mines was sent, again by mule train through Guadalajara and Mexico City to Veracruz, where it was sent, once a year, to Spain At this moment the Hacienda Jalisco is the best place to stay. A wonderful old colonial Hacienda, built 170 years ago by the Spnish, with tall ceilings and a fireplace in every room - it gets cold at night. There is no electricity, evenings are lit by oil lamps and candles, there's no telephone.

We’re at the end of this series now... If you’ve made it through all five of these videos, I thank you for watching and I’m going to assume that you saw why we enjoyed this abandoned mine so much. With some mines, there is a feeling of relief to get outside again into the open skies and fresh air. However, I actually find myself reluctant to leave mines such as this one or the Buca della Vena Mine in Italy. Sure, we’re usually tired after a day of scrambling through the different levels, but they are really fun to explore and after seeing so many amazing things, one is reluctant to leave the party early. As you probably gathered, this is not the last level in this mine, but this is as far as we could go on this trip. There was no way we could have gotten up those soggy, rotten ladders running up the side of that shaft or winze (I still don’t know if that was a winze or a capped shaft). You saw how many rungs were missing and by the point we arrived, those ladders were essentially mush. Speaking of rotten things… How did you like that false floor hanging out over that huge open space? I thought it was pretty cool to be able to look back on that and to see what the platform looked like underneath. It isn’t often that one is able to get a perspective like that. And I’m glad I didn’t go out on it because that would not have been a pleasant ride! I’m also glad we were able to gain additional views down into the huge cave as well. I don’t know if you noticed or not, but at one of those openings I showed down into the cave, you could see ore cart rail jutting out a little bit into the opening. That was one of the points where the miners were dumping the waste rock into the cave. As great as it was to see more of the enormous cave, I think my favorite thing on this upper level was that sign displaying the “Mine Hoist Signal Code.” It is very rare to find intact signs like that. First of all, not many mines are big enough to even have one in the first place. Secondly, the wet or flooded mines will soon cause a sign like that to rot away to nothing. And, lastly, although they might be preserved in the dry, desert mines, those are some of the first mine relics to disappear into the backpacks of “collectors.” So, it is a treat to see one still in place where it belongs. It took us a full day to explore the section of this mine that you saw in this series of five videos, but that is far from the whole mine. I’ve spoken with an individual that knows this mine very well and has seen far more of it than we have. According to him (which is supported by the maps I have seen), we saw only approximately 20% of this abandoned mine in this series. Imagine a series of 25-30 videos that it would have taken to cover this one mine! We haven’t been in many mines that are that big… Really, there aren’t many mines that ARE that big. I haven’t posted them yet, but I actually still have two mine series to publish that are also of enormous mines like this. I think you’ll like those... ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

After following the drift we ended the last video with to its surprising conclusion, we started moving back toward the main hub of this enormous abandoned mine. Along the way, we explored many of the side passages and raises that were bypassed on the route in through the main haulage adit located in this part of the mine. Following the very long hike up and out of the mine, we set up our camp for the night (we spent all day underground in this mine) and then headed above the mine to see some of its more interesting features above ground. You’ll see that we explore some of the mine buildings, including one that has an amazing collection inside of it. Although I was curious about what was inside of the modern mine buildings we discovered, I also had a specific destination in mind. One of my exploring buddies – Adit Addicts – had spotted what appeared to be a steam shovel abandoned above the modern mine we explored in this video. I wanted to see this machine to confirm what it was and also to film it if it really did turn out to be a steam shovel. As with the mine itself, it was quite a hike up into the hills above it. Fortunately, I was able to find the machine (although the GPS took me on a terrible route to do so) and it was indeed a steam shovel. Sort of... It was a steam shovel at one time, but had actually been converted over to run on an internal combustion motor. I had never seen anything like that before and it was pretty amazing to see one out in the desert mountains still next to the pile of dirt it had been excavating decades ago. The modern abandoned mine featured in this video is definitely not the first mine in this area and when looking around above the mine, it was fairly common to see old collapsed adits and old surface mining work. Many of these seemed to be more exploratory in nature though. This area has historically been a large producer of ores containing lead, copper and silver and a thriving town was once supported by the mines. However, today, there is almost no trace left of the ghost town or an aerial tramway that also used to be here. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

Mineral de Pozos was abandoned twice since the time of its foundation and was known as a ghost town. It is once again being inhabited by people from all over Mexico as well as the descendents of former miners who come to rescue its old houses, plazas, and streets. The surrounding area harbors centuries-old mines and nearby haciendas evoke the riches of now-exhausted silver and gold deposits. From their deep tunnels emanate the murmurs of the legends and tales of these semidesert lands.
