Sierra Leone cancels 57 mine operating and exploration licenses
Sierra Leone has cancelled a total of 57 mining licenses as it moves to revive its mining sector. Majority of the companies affected by the action are owned by local and Chinese investors. The country's Mines ministry and minerals agency also cancelled all three exploration licenses of Austrialian-owned Argosy Minerals Limited. The Perth-based company received the licenses for iron ore exploration in Bembeye in southern Sierra Leone in 2011. A statement from the country's director of Mine… READ MORE : http://www.africanews.com/2016/06/01/sierra-leone-cancels-57-mine-operating-and-exploration-licenses Africanews is a new pan-African media pioneering multilingual and independent news telling expertise in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Abandoned Train/Mining Tunnel & Unique Remains
In this next video i visit a location that Cliff has been to a few times. It's known as the Williamstown Tunnel and was created to transport coal from the mines to the colliery on the other side of the mountain. Even though the tunnel is no longer completely passable, we were still able to get a look inside of it. Some portions of it even resemble a coal mine with rich coal deposits still in existence. After the tunnel, we check out some building ruins and remnants and even discover a sinkhole that may connect to one of the mine. So come along with me. Enjoy ►Cliff's Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LuaPjIAyNQ&t=0s&list=WL&index=4 ►Wandering Woodsman Channel: https://goo.gl/eTEFS9 Please Note: Exploring Abandoned locations can be dangerous. I don't condone or encourage anyone to enter an Abandoned structure. Not only is safety a concern, but often times its illegal and when possible, i seek out permission.

Dangerous Exploration: Finding an Old Gun in the Wicked Wash Mine (Part 3)
As promised, Paul and I returned recently to the Wicked Wash Mine and descended to the 300-Level after having already explored the 100- and 200-Levels on previous visits. The 300-Level was not nearly as extensive as the 200-Level was, but we did find a large stope and a lot of bats. Dampness was also present on the 300-Level which was something we did not encounter on the upper two levels. According to my firearms expert buddy Tony, the gun that we found stashed in an old box on the 300-Level is an H&R Young America .32 five-shot revolver that dates back to sometime between 1900 and 1930. What an amazing find! Due to a lot of collapse and debris partially plugging the main inclined shaft just below the 300-Level station, we decided to postpone any further descent to the 400-Level and lower until a future expedition. On the way back up the inclined shaft to the surface, we once again stopped at the 200-Level station for a closer look at the two ore chutes and their gears that extend into the shaft. While examining them, we noticed that the side of a wooden Tropical Preserving Company box had been nailed to the ore chute. That company dates back to the 1920s and is still in business today making jams, jellies, and fruit butter. Wedged in next to the chute was an old Folger's coffee can, too.

Most Amazing Open-pit Mines in The World (diamonds, gold, silver, copper...) [igeoNews]
Contribute to the Project: http://igeo.tv/contribuye-al-proyecto/ The Bingham Canyon Mine, also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine, is an open-pit mining operation extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mine is owned by Rio Tinto Group, an international mining and exploration company headquartered in the United Kingdom. The copper operations at Bingham Canyon Mine are managed through Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation which operates the mine, a concentrator plant, a smelter, and a refinery. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (0.97 km) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 under the name Bingham Canyon Open Pit Copper Mine. The mine experienced a massive landslide in April of 2013 and a smaller slide in September of 2013. Udachnaya was discovered on June 15, 1955, just two days after the discovery of the diamond pipe Mir by Soviet geologist Vladimir Shchukin and his team. It is more than 600 metres (1,970 ft) deep, making it the third deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine and Chuquicamata). The nearby settlement of Udachny is named for the deposit. As of 2010, Udachnaya pipe is controlled by Russian diamond company Alrosa, which planned to halt open-pit mining in favor of underground mining in 2010. The mine has estimated reserves of 225.8 million carats of diamonds and an annual production capacity of 10.4 million carats Chuquicamata, or "Chuqui" as it is more familiarly known, is by excavated volume the biggest open pit copper mine in the world, located in the north of Chile, just outside of Calama, 215 km northeast of Antofagasta and 1,240 km north of the capital, Santiago. The mine is owned and operated by Codelco, a Chilean state enterprise, since the Chilean nationalization of copper in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Its depth of 850 metres (2,790 ft) makes it the second deepest open-pit mine in the world (after Bingham Canyon Mine in Utah, USA). The Diavik Diamond Mine is a diamond mine in the North Slave Region of the Northwest Territories, Canada, about 300 kilometres (190 mi) north of Yellowknife. It has become an important part of the regional economy, employing 700, grossing C$100 million in sales, and producing approximately 7.5 million carats (1,500 kg (3,300 lb)) of diamonds annually.[2] The area was surveyed in 1992 and construction began in 2001, with production commencing in January 2003. It is connected by an ice road and Diavik Airport with a 5,235 ft (1,596 m) gravel runway regularly accommodating Boeing 737 jet aircraft. The Grasberg Mine is the largest gold mine and the third largest copper mine in the world. It is located in the province of Papua in Indonesia near Puncak Jaya, the highest mountain in Papua, and it has 19,500 employees. It is majority owned through a subsidiary by Freeport-McMoRan, which owns 90.64% of PT Freeport Indonesia, the principal operating subsidiary in Indonesia, including 9.36% owned through its wholly owned subsidiary, PT Indocopper Investama. The Government of Indonesia owns the remaining 9.36% of PT Freeport Indonesia. FCX operates under an agreement with the Government of Indonesia, which allows Freeport to conduct exploration, mining and production activities in a 24,700-acre area (Block A). It also conducts exploration activities in an approximate 500,000-acre area (Block B). All of Freeport's proven and probable mineral reserves and current mining operations are located in Block A. The 2006 production was 610,800 tonnes of copper; 58,474,392 grams of gold; and 174,458,971 grams of silver.

Gunsite (Gunsight) Mine Exploration - Tecopa, California
This video describes our examination on 4-12- 2018 of the Gunsite lead/silver mine near Tecopa, CA. The mine dates back to the 1870's and has an interesting history. There have been three boom periods for the mining business in the Tecopa area and the town of Tecopa has moved a few times in response to the boom cycles. The first boom is known as the Osborne period 1874-1881 The second boom is known as the Tecopa Consolidated Mining period (TCM) 1906-1928 The third boom is the Shoshone Mines Inc., Finley Co., and Anaconda Copper Mining Co. 1940-1957 First boom: In 1875 the Brown brothers, William and Robert, discovered silver lead ore in the southern Nopah mountain range, which lead to the start of the Balance mine. They organized a mining district named Brown's Treasure which later changed to Resting Springs. The Brown's sold an interest in the Balance mine to George Hearst, an entrepreneur and father of famed newspaper man William Randolph Hearst, among other San Francisco financiers, and formed the Balance Consolidated Gold and Silver Mining Co. (BCG&SMC) They started development of the mine in the fall which led to the start of the Resting Spring Mining District. The BCG&SMC started a town named Brownsville, in honor of the brothers, located at the beginning of China Ranch wash. In late 1875 Jonas P. Osborne, a superintendent of a mining company in Eureka, Nevada, bought an interest in several of the Brown brothers claims, and moved to Brownsville. He worked on ideas to reduce ore shipping costs by trying to concentrate the ore with a large scale smelter near the mines. To build the smelter he needed financial backing, which he obtained from several people, after Hearst refused to back him. They formed the Los Angles Mining and Smelting Co. (LAM&SC). Osborne then bought the BCG&SMC mines, the Noonday and four other mines directly from the Brown's. He then sold them to LAM&SC in exchange for half the company's stock and a position as mine superintendent. LAM&SC bought several mines in the area, including the Gunsite (Gunsight), from other miners who had claims in the area. This led to an influx of about 400 men to Brownsville. In September of 1876 Osborne bought Brownsville from the Brown's for $100 and started selling lots for $75 each and changed the name to Tecopa. The name Tecopa comes from the name of the local Southern Paiute "chief" Tecopa. By January of 1878 the smelter was up and running and by August Tecopa had a population of about 200. During 1878 Osborne's smelter proved to be a failure due to the number of men needed to operate it (40), many needed repairs, the need to haul wood and convert it to charcoal and an insufficient water supply. In late 1878 he gave up on the smelter. He then convinced LAM&SC to invest in a new device, the Davis Pulverizer, which was a rotary mill, and set it up near Resting Spring. Resting Spring had been a water and rest stop on the Old Spanish Trail since 1829. Here, Osborne once again, plotted out a new town site and sold lots. By February 1879 building was on going at Resting Spring and Tecopa had nearly been abandoned. Ore was being brought from the Noonday and Gunsite mines to the pulverizer in Resting Springs. This became the second location for Tecopa. After a new freight route, from Mojave around southern Death Valley and on to Resting Spring, made by freighter Remi Nadeau, the pulverizer became less viable and failed. After the failure of the pulverizer Osborne built a 10-stamp mill a couple miles south and downhill from Resting Spring. Ore from the Gunsite was milled here and water was piped from Resting Spring. The mill turned out to be too inefficient to be profitable and couldn't pay for it's operating costs along with the cost of mining. After the mill failed to make concentrating the ore and there by reducing the shipping costs profitable, Osborne decided to make moving ore from the Gunsite to the mill more efficient. He spent a lot of money digging a 600 foot long adit, on the 300 foot level, to eliminate the need to lift the ore that was then loaded on mule teams that hauled the ore down the mountain on switch backs. He later built a tram around the corner of the mountain from the adit to haul the ore down the mountain and replace the mule teams. By 1880 Osborne sold off his stock and resigned. In July 1881 the stockholders refused to pay another stock assessment and LAM&SC closed. The Gunsite had produced $260,000 of bullion but it was not enough to cover operating expenses. The TCM period, The Shoshone Mines Inc., Finley Co., and Anaconda Copper Mining Co. period are also interesting and I encourage you to research them if you like. This is the limit YouTube allows for a video description.

World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

Planetary Resources, The Asteroid Mining Company
I’m going to give an overview of Planetary Resources and explore the potential for asteroid mining. Planetary Resources, PR for short, will have their Arkyd-6 imaging satellite launched from the Indian Space Research Organization’s PSLV rocket in the coming weeks. The launch of the Arkyd 6 will bring PR one step closer to their goal to develop and deploy the technologies for asteroid mining. How does Planetary Resources plan to mine asteroids? Let’s find out! Welcome to NeoScribe, researching the future for you, so you don’t have to. If you’re new to my channel, I cover topics such as space exploration, robotics and ALL things future. So if you want to know how cool life will be in the future, hit the subscribe button, and notification bell, so you don’t miss out. Alight, our journey starts with the asteroid, 1903 LU also known as 511 Davida. It is the 7th largest asteroid in our solar system with a diameter of 167 to 192 miles or 270 to 310 km. Davida was discovered by Raymond Smith Dugan in 1903, and it will blow your mind. We will get to that a little later, but for now, let’s visit Asterank.com; which is a scientific and economic database of over 600,000 asteroids created by Ian Webster and acquired by PR in 2013. Here it is, we can see the inner half of the solar system, the outer orange ring is the orbit of Jupiter. The teal colored ring is the orbit of Earth. And then there are all these tiny white dots, glowing like specs of dust. Each of those dots are actual asteroids, simulated accurately, according to time which you can see is sped up in the upper right of the screen. Now let’s click on Most Valuable, and look to the left of the screen. On the top of the list, we see Davida. Next to its name is 1903’s estimated value of $15 QUINTILLION dollars. Unless you’ve played AdVenture Capitalist, you probably aren’t familiar with QUINTILLIONS. A QUINTILLION has 18 zeros behind it. $15 Quintillion is so much money, it would take GDP of all the countries in the world at $78 Trillion, 197,213 years to make $15 Quintillion! S0, Planetary Resources, PR, has their eyes set on the treasures of space. PR’s mission is to mine near-Earth asteroids for raw materials, ranging from water to precious metals. They aim to develop cost-effective exploration technologies, and initiate prospecting missions and target resource-rich asteroids that are easily accessible. PR believes mining asteroids could bring in billions of dollars annually to the global economy. The effort will tap into the high concentration of precious metals found on asteroids and provide a sustainable supply to the ever-growing population on Earth. PR was founded in 2009, in a shroud of secrecy, under the name of Arkyd Astronautics to hide their asteroid mining intentions. It was founded by Peter Diamandis, Eric Anderson and Chris Lewicki and is headquartered out of Redmond WA. They are backed by a handful of billionaire investors, including Google’s co-founder Larry Page, Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt, former Microsoft chief architect Charles Simonyi, and Ross Perot Jr. The company also has Avatar director James Cameron, former astronaut Tom Jones, and planetary scientist Sara Seager as advisers.

Historic Gold Mine & Mill Deep In The Forest – Part 1
This mine was once made up of several smaller claims and the earliest records I can find on those date back to 1867. However, by the turn of the last century (1900), these appear to have all been consolidated into the large operation seen in the video. Given the large number of adits and trenches, the number of collapsed structures (I only showed a small number of them in the video), the large stamp mill and the need for a cemetery, this was obviously a significant mining community during its heyday. The guys I explored this site with are the Gold Country Explorers and credit goes to them for locating it. Gold Country Explorers find and post pictures of some really awesome places. You can find a link to their material here: https://www.facebook.com/Gold-Country-Explorers-850167371691275/ To see one of those monster Fairbanks-Morse stationary engines running (and it is worth seeing), check out the great video at the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_0xifuTqVA An early (1800s) California State Mining Bureau report had this to say about the mill at the site: “A 20-stamp mill was located on the east side of the creek, with 900-pound stamps driven by a Knight wheel under 94’ of head from a 1,650’ long ditch; only one battery of stamps was reported as being in running order.” A later report (1900s) adds these additional details about the mill: “The mill at this time is described as possessing a 50-ton daily capacity, with a jaw crusher, 10 stamps, and ball mill in closed circuit with a Dorr classifier. Riffles were set below the stamps, and amalgamation plates below the ball mill. Three Fagergren flotation cells were followed by two Kraut cleaner-cells. A 200-hp diesel engine drove a generator to supply electric power, and a 440 cfm compressor was driven by a 100-hp motor.” Now, you may notice a discrepancy here as the first description mentions twenty stamps and the second description mentions ten stamps. As you saw in the video, the ruins of the mill at the mine site now has ten stamps. So, does that mean that an earlier mill was torn down and replaced by a new mill? Possibly. However, in the picture in the video, which was taken in 1937, a flume can be clearly seen leading toward the mill. Presumably, it was still being used when the photograph was taken because it appears to be maintained and in good condition. So, perhaps the mill was remodeled or rehabbed and ten stamps were taken away? The first report mentions that only one battery was in working order… In further support of this idea is the manufacturer’s stamp on the stamp mill itself. Union Iron Works of San Francisco ceased to be an independent company in 1902 when it was absorbed into a conglomerate called the United States Shipbuilding Company. This, therefore, dates the stamp mill to the time of the original report and would seem to suggest that it is the same mill. The last records of work being done at this mine date to 1939. You can perhaps better understand how everything is laid out at this abandoned gold mine by knowing that I did not backtrack or meander at all during the video, but continued in a steady downstream direction. So, the order in which objects of interest appear in the video are the order in which they are laid out across this sprawling site. ***** 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 click here for the 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 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

Exploring Active Mines: Alleghany's Sixteen to One Mine
Located in the California mountain town of Alleghany, the Sixteen to One Mine is now the oldest gold mining corporation in the United States and with more than 26 miles of underground workings, it is a seriously impressive operation! This remarkably rich lode gold mine was located in 1896 by a man named Thomas Bradbury in his backyard (we should all be so lucky). More than a million ounces of gold have been extracted from the Sixteen to One Mine over the course of its existence (an amount worth well over a billion US dollars at current gold prices) and there is still much more gold inside of the mine waiting to be found... The gold inside of the Sixteen to One Mine does not follow a set pattern and is instead found in rich pockets randomly scattered across the quartz vein that the mine follows. Some of the pockets of gold are as small as an ounce or two and others contain tens of thousands of ounces of gold. The very existence of the Sixteen to One Mine revolves around locating these pockets of gold. The lower levels of the mine are presently flooded, but they are being dewatered at this time as the Sixteen to One Mine has two new gold detectors with proven successes in identifying gold in quartz previously undetected with older models. The potential of this new technology has inspired the company to pay the price of dewatering and rehabilitating the lower levels of the mine in order to pursue the gold they know is down there. No one has walked inside of the 3000 level since 1939 and so one can only imagine what might be found down there now. At present rates of pumping, the water in the lower levels of the mine is dropping at the rate of about 100 feet per month and access to the 3000 level may be restored by as soon as June of 2018. On this visit, we entered through the 800 Crosscut and first proceeded to the 49 Winze. Following this, we then headed deeper inside of the mine before dropping down through multiple levels to an incredible cavern that the miners carved out inside of the Sixteen to One Mine - the company calls this “The Ballroom” for its immense size and acoustics… For more information on the Sixteen to One Mine or even to buy physical gold or stock shares from the company, one can visit their website at: http://www.origsix.com/ ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

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 niche of our history is gone forever. But, guess what? We have fun 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 hundred years, 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

The European Space Agency plans to start mining for water and oxygen on the moon by 2025. The agency announced Monday it has signed a 1-year contract with European aerospace company Ariane Group to explore mining regolith, also known as lunar soil or moon dust. This is the first step in ESA’s own long term strategy for a permanent human base the Moon. ESA has been looking for international partners for a few years now in hope it can attract fresh ideas and capitol needed for ESA’s Moon Village idea. The Moon Village is a concept of a permanent human base on the Moon, which could eventually grow in to a large thriving base home to hundreds of scientist, researchers, engineers and odd space tourist. For Moon Village idea to have any grounding, ESA hopes to find resources locally on the Moon, future Moon outpost can utilize. ESA hopes it can find water in the lunar regolith as Water and oxygen can be extracted from regolith, potentially making it easier for humans to spend time on the moon in the future. The research could also make it possible to produce rocket fuel on the moon, enabling future expeditions to go further into space. "The use of space resources could be a key to sustainable lunar exploration," said David Parker, ESA Director of Human and Robotic Exploration. Regolith is the layer of loose soil that covers the moon's surface, which is rich with iron oxide. And it is possible to extract large amounts of oxygen trapped in the soil's rocky materials. "This study is part of ESA's comprehensive plan to make Europe a partner in global exploration in the next decade," Parker said. The mission would be a collaboration between aerospace scientists and technicians in France, Germany and Belgium. The project is now in the research phase, with scientists hoping to use an Ariane 64 rocket in coming years to send mining equipment to the moon. ESA is keen to bring other partners on board and has been talking to NASA, JAXA, Chinese Space Agency and even Russian space Agency in working on a common goal of setting up a permanent manned lunar base by 2028.

Exploring the Wayside Mine
The Wayside mine is located on the north side of Carpenter Lake at latitude 50° 52' 30", longitude 122° 49' 40", 3.2 kilometres north of Gold Bridge (Figure 9a). Access to the property is by bush roads that connect directly to Highway 40 and the Gun Lake road. The property and mine site was visited repeatedly by the writer and crew between 1986 and 1988. The geology of the property was done together with a magnetometer survey and logging of 20 drill cores provided by Chevron Minerals Limited. The history of the Wayside property has been outlined by Cairnes (1937), Kelly (1972) and McAllister et al. (1988). Details of the periods of active exploration and development from 1906 to 1937, 1946 to 1953 and 1971 to 1988 are given in the Minister of Mines Annual Reports and subsequent government publications such as Exploration in British Columbia. The property was first staked by J.C. Patterson in 1900. The original claim group, comprising the Wayside, Argon, Radium, Helium and Queen City Fraction, was sold to O. Fergusson and C. Walker six years later. By 1910 three adits had been driven on the Wayside vein system and a sample of pyrite-enriched quartz ore was shipped by pack-train for testing. D.C. Paxton then acquired the property and a small mill was in operation by 1915. From 1917 to 1922 there are no reports of activity and the property passed to Messrs. Fergusson and Walker in 1924. This led to a program of sampling and geological mapping and the property was transferred to Wayside Consolidated Gold Mines Limited in 1928. By 1933 complete camp facilities were installed, including a hydro-electric plant; the Wayside vein system had been exposed on five levels in 300 metres of tunnelling over a vertical interval of 150 metres. Production in 1915 and from 1934 to 1937, totalled 39,109 tonnes, yielding 166.1 kilograms of gold and 26.1 kilograms of silver (MINFILE 092JNE030). From the end of operations in 1937 until recently only a small amount of exploration work was done, mainly by the L.A.P. Mining Company Limited (1946 to 1953) and the Ace Mining Company Limited (after 1959). In 1947 the mine was dewatered and rehabilitated with the addition of hoisting equipment 900 tonnes of ore were produced for metallurgical testing. A fire at the mine in 1953 curtailed further curtailed further development. In 1971 Dawson Range Mines Limited (Carpenter Lake Resources Limited) acquired the property and in the following four years completed a number of programs including geological and geophysical surveys, underground rehabilitation, sampling, and diamond drilling (2344 metres in 1980). This led to the discovery of the 'New Discovery' and 'Commodore' zones and the '3T' vein. In 1984 the property was optioned to Amazon Petroleum Corporation Limited and many targets were retested by diamond drilling (1829 metres in 1984; 2438 metres in 1985). Early in 1987, Amazon Petroleum Inc. and Carpenter Lake Resources Limited optioned the property to Chevron Canada Resources Limited. This began renewed exploration activity on the property based on similarities in geological setting, morphology and mineralization between the Wayside mine and the gold-quartz veins at Bralorne, 15 kilometres to the south. A total of 21 diamond drill-holes (3006 metres) were completed in Chevron's 1987-88 program to locate faulted segments of the Wayside veins and similar mineralization. Work in 1992 by Wayside Gold Mines Ltd. and Brigadier Resources Limited, in a 50/50 partnership relationship, included dewatering of the lower levels of the Wayside mine and resampling the main vein and Notman vein systems. They drilled 31 underground holes in 1993. Wayside Gold Mines Ltd. became International Wayside Gold Mines Ltd. in 1994.

The Ivanhoe Mine!
Tough day following a tram line up to a mine high in the mountains above Sandon called the Ivanhoe.The Ivanhoe occurrence is situated on Crown grant Lot 743 at 2058 metres elevation above sea level, between Sandon and Selkirk peaks, in the Slocan Mining Division. The underground workings cover most of the eastern portion of Lot 743 and extend east on to the Elgin Crown grant (Lot 742). This property was owned in 1952 by the Minnesota Silver Company, Limited, who have owned the claim since 1894. The property was located about 1893 and was worked fairly steadily up to 1905, after which it lay idle until 1913 when operations were resumed and continued until 1921. Since that time little if any work has been done within the property limits. In 1900 a 100-ton mill was erected at Sandon. This was connected to the mine workings by an aerial tramway 2590 metres long. The mill was burned in 1915, and subsequently rebuilt by the Rosebery-Surprise Mining Company who acquired an option on the Ivanhoe property in 1919. This option was allowed to lapse the following year and in 1921 Silversmith Mines, Limited, took over the mill and remodelled it. The mine was developed by 8 levels over a vertical range of about 183 metres. Nos. 1, 2, 4 and 8 levels are adits. Ore was stoped from No. 6 to 12.1 metres above No. 1 level, a vertical distance of 99 metres, but most of the stoping was done between levels Nos. 2 and 4. No. 2 level, driven on parts of a large and complex lode was partly accessible in 1948. No. 8 adit reaches the Ivanhoe lode at 399 metres and No. 4 adit reaches it at about 152 metres from the portal. The longest levels are Nos. 4 and 8. The former extends 224 metres east and 780 metres west and southwest of the crosscut, including in the latter direction an extension of 335 metres into the adjoining property of the Canadian group (082FNW197). No. 8 level drifts about 152 metres west of the crosscut and 286 metres east and also passes into Canadian ground for 247 metres. These levels are only partially accessible and the other levels are short and for the most part inaccessible. Regionally, the area lies on the western margin of the Kootenay Arc, in allochthonous rocks of the Quesnel Terrane. In the vicinity of the occurrence, the Quesnel Terrane is dominated by the Upper Triassic Slocan Group, a thick sequence of deformed and metamorphosed shale, argillite, siltstone, quartzite and minor limestone. Rocks of the Slocan Group are tightly and disharmonically folded. Early minor folds are tight to isoclinal with moderate east plunging, southeast inclined axial planes and younger folds are open, southwest plunging with subhorizontal axial planes. The sedimentary sequence has been regionally metamorphosed to lower greenschist facies. South of the occurrence, the Slocan Group has been intruded by the Middle Jurassic Nelson intrusions which comprise at least six texturally and compositionally distinct phases ranging from diorite to lamprophyre. The most dominant phase is a medium to coarse grained potassium feldspar porphyritic granite. Several feldspar porphyritic granodiorite dikes, apparently related to the Nelson intrusions, also cut the sedimentary sequence near the occurrence (Paper 1989-5). The Ivanhoe occurrence is hosted by limestone, argillite and quartzite of the Slocan Group that are intruded by quartz feldspar porphyries. The rocks are folded in a synclinal structure with the limbs striking north-northwest and dipping moderately southwest and northeast. The occurrence consists of a broad and irregular zone of faulting and shearing over 7 metres in width containing brecciated wallrock cemented by quartz and siderite with local lenses and veins of sulphides up to 1.5 metres thick. The walls of the fissure vein are marked by consistent gouge. The shear zone strikes east-west for most of the property but swings sharply southwest as it approaches the Canadian property (082FNW197). Veins within the shear zone dip 52 degrees south. On the Ivanhoe and Elgin Crown grants the vein system has been developed on at least eight underground levels and over a vertical range of about 180 metres. Above the No. 3 level of the mine the stopes were continuous for about 180 metres. Within the productive section of the veins the ore consisted of argentiferous galena and sphalerite in a matrix of siderite and quartz. Much of the ore was concentrated in semimassive lenses up to 1.5 metres wide between the second and fourth levels. Production from the Ivanhoe between 1895 and 1935 yielded about 14 tonnes of silver, 2366 tonnes of lead, 330 tonnes of zinc and 31 grams of gold from 40,293 tonnes mined.
The Potosi Mine: Going Deep Inside Nevada's Oldest Lode Mine
We hiked up to the Potosi Mine to check out Nevada's oldest lode mine. The Potosi Mine was discovered in the mid-1800s and was owned by various companies until about 1930. The mine was mainly a silver mine, but other minerals were also mined there including zinc. We explored nearly all of this extensive, six-level abandoned mine.
Minnova Corp sees tremendous potential at its PL Gold Mine
In this interview, Gorden Glenn, Chairman, President and CEO of Minnova Corp, speaks with Natasha Frakes about how the company sees potential in restarting the PL Gold Mine in Manitoba. He discusses how the mine is essentially untested, aside from the PL and Nokomis deposits, which means that the exploration potential is quite high. Moreover, he mentions how Minnova has taken steps to better understand the mine’s geology by doing its own drilling in the last 4-5 years. As a result, Minnova is going to expand its area of activity beyond the PL Mine deposit around 20-22km of prospective geology on strike. Finally, he discusses how Minnova’s goal moving forward is to add to its shareholder base, as well as provide exploration success on a per share basis.

Michio Kaku predicts asteroid mining will happen sooner than you think
Good news! We're on the precipice of the next great gold rush... but it won't be in the hills of California. Or anywhere on this planet. It'll be in outer space, as there are untapped rare materials in asteroids that could be used for future technologies. That's right: there's gold in them thar skies! Theoretical physicist and one of our favorite Big Thinkers, Dr. Michio Kaku, explains to us that while China might have a stranglehold on the rare minerals and metals on our planet, there's no stopping interplanetary mining. We've even got an actual plan with actual economics already in place... we just have to wait until NASA's SLS rocket technology fully develops. Michio Kaku's latest book is the awesome The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/michio-kaku-asteroid-mining-will-happen-sooner-than-you-think Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: When I was researching my book The Future of Humanity I came across a comment made by Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson made the biggest gamble of his life buying the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon. Napoleon was fighting the British he needed hard cash immediately. He had Louisiana and that whole middle portion of the United States and so Napoleon sold it to Thomas Jefferson for a song. But Thomas Jefferson thought how long would it take to investigate what he had just purchased? He had doubled the size of the USA. Think about that. And he probably violated the Constitution in the process. Everyone forgets that. Everyone glosses over that fact, but hey when Louis and Clark went into the territories that comprised the Louisiana Purchase they found tremendous prospects for wealth and prosperity, but Thomas Jefferson wrote that it may take a thousand years, a thousand years before they could then begin to settle the west. Well, how long did it take? A few decades because what happened? Gold. Gold was discovered in California sparking the gold rush and within just a few years millions of prospectors, settlers, fortune hunters converged on California. It didn’t take a thousand years to develop that. Then the question now is is there going to be a new gold rush in outer space? Some people think so. Some Google billionaires have created an organization, a company, Planetary Resources, that are looking into prospecting in the asteroid belt. Now, asteroids come in all shapes and sizes and we’re cataloging them now and we have already found some perspective asteroids that could be mined. One asteroid perhaps maybe 30/50 feet across brought back down either to the moon or to the planet earth could in fact yield billions of dollars in rewards because of the rare earths and the platinum type medals that you find inside. You see, the electronics industry is dependent upon rare earths. Where are these rare earth elements found it? Mainly in China. They’re everywhere, of course, but China has the most developed market and the Chinese in turn supply on the order of 90 percent of the rare earths. Well, a few years ago they decided to capitalize that and raise the price. All of a sudden shockwaves, shockwaves spread around the earth because people realized that oh my God China has a stranglehold, a stranglehold on high technology. How can you build the next iPhone if you don’t have the rare earths to make the transistors and to make the delicate components of these high tech devices? So I think what’s happening here is that some people see an area for profit and that is asteroid mining. Now of course, the infrastructure for that doesn’t exist, but NASA has looked at its budget and does have a program that has been shelved temporarily to redirect an asteroid. The Asteroid Redirect Program is to send of the SL ass booster rocket into outer space with the Orion capsule. It will then intercept an asteroid and bring it back to orbit around the moon. Then it can be mined as it orbits around the moon or as it’s brought back to planet earth. And so this is now beyond the phase of science fiction. We’re no longer talking about dreaming about an asteroid redirect, we’re talking about an actual plan with the economics, with the details laid out. However, at the present time we have to wait for NASA’s SLS rocket to mature to the point where we can intercept an asteroid.

Unusual Abandoned Copper Mine In The Nevada Desert - Part 2
I’m guessing you’ll see my point about this being among the more unusual abandoned mines out there after the conclusion of this video… Have any of you ever seen anything like this before? We’ve come across samples before – even warehouses full of core samples – but nothing like this. As I mentioned before, the peak amount of activity at this mine seems to have been around World War I. Some sense of the community that certainly thrived here – even if just for a brief time - can be derived from what is seen in the video. However, there were a lot of foundations and other evidence of habitation, such as can dumps and unidentifiable bits of metal that I didn’t include in the video. All of this is suggestive of a sizable community here in the past. The stockpile of samples is, obviously, more recent than World War I. This stockpile appears to be the result of a mining company or a group of miners that was interested in the minerals in this site (probably impressed by the same deposits we were impressed by) in more recent decades and conducted a VERY thorough analysis of the area through extensive sampling. For whatever reason, they chose not to proceed with initiating mining operations. Perhaps commodity prices were too low or the remaining deposits just weren’t rich enough? This group put a major investment into obtaining and organizing those samples though. It seems a shame for the results of all of that intensive research to be abandoned and vulnerable to the first vandal that comes along and scatters the samples everywhere or torches the buildings. Some have observed that the timbers inside of these mines look more recent than World War I, but the dry, desert conditions of Nevada preserve these old mines amazingly well. Materials that are underground are out of the sunlight as well as the weather on the surface. Simply taking weather and sunlight out of the equation does wonders for preservation. We have visited mines where crude timbers hacked out of trees surrounding the mine close to one hundred and fifty years earlier still look as if they were hammered into place a month before. ***** 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 click here for the 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.

TechKnow - Deep sea gold rush
Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth's surface, but only a fraction of the undersea world has been explored. On this episode of TechKnow, Phil Torres joins a team of scientists on a special expedition to explore and uncover the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean floor. "What we are doing is similar to astronauts and planetary scientists just trying to study life on another planet," says Beth Orcutt, a senior research scientist. The journey begins in Costa Rica aboard the R/V Atlantis, a research vessel operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. From there, Phil gets the chance to take a dive with Alvin, a deep-water submersible capable of taking explorers down to 6,000 metres (20,000 feet) under the sea. Commissioned in 1964, Alvin has a celebrated history, locating an unexploded hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain and exploring the famous RMS Titanic in the 1980s. Alvin and its first female pilot, Cindy Van Dover, were the first to discover hydrothermal vents, which are underwater springs where plumes of black smoke and water pour out from underneath the earth's crust. The vents were inhabited by previously unknown organisms that thrived in the absence of sunlight. After 40 years of exploration, Alvin got a high-tech upgrade. The storied submersible is now outfitted with high-resolution cameras to provide a 245-degree viewing field and a robotic arm that scientists can use to pull samples of rock and ocean life to then study back on land. But scientists are not the only ones interested in the ocean. These days the new gold rush is not in the hills, it is in the deep sea. For thousands of years miners have been exploiting the earth in search of precious metals. As resources on dry land are depleted, now the search for new sources of metals and minerals is heading underwater. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's national ocean service estimates that there is more than $150tn in gold waiting to be mined from the floor of the world's oceans. "The industry is moving very, very fast. They have far more financial resources than the scientific community," says Cindy Van Dover, Alvin's first female pilot and Duke University Oceanography Professor. Seabed mining is still in the planning stages, but Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian mining company, says it has the technology and the contracts in place with the island nation of Papua New Guinea to start mining in its waters in about two years.

Will Lithium really bring this desperate Country prosperity or will it prove just a lost opportunity? Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt lake in the world and contains the most lithium on earth. Lithium is used to treat mental illness, build nuclear bombs and power laptops. It is an important ingredient enabling batteries to store and expel power. "They want us to speed up the handover of lithium and to move faster towards capitalist partnerships", explains Jose Pimentel, Bolivian Mines Minister, "But the government's policy has been determined; we're going to take our own decisive steps towards the process of industrialising lithium". Bolivia is stuck in an industrial time warp and wants to control the process closely. The question is will the world wait?

Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI) - A Diversified Global Mining Company
http://www.hdimining.com/s/Home.asp Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI) is a diversified, global mining group with more than 25 years of mineral development success. From its head office in Vancouver, Canada, HDI applies its unique strengths and capabilities to acquire, develop, operate and monetize mineral properties that provide consistently superior returns to shareholders. HDI was established as an affiliation of geologists, financiers and mining professionals engaged in advancing mineral properties in western Canada for a series of public companies. Many of the company's founders are active members of the HDI Board of Directors and senior management team today. From 1985 to 1990, HDI founded three companies -- North American Metals, Continental Gold and El Condor Resources -- with projects that would go on to become major hard rock mines. These include Golden Bear (operated 1989-2001), Kemess (operated 2000-2011) and Mt. Milligan (construction commenced in 2010). A new suite of HDI-associated public companies was created in the 1990s, each of which went on to advance significant mining assets and generate superior shareholder returns. Many of these companies -- including Taseko Mines Limited, Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. and Amarc Resources Ltd. -- are still associated with HDI today. Others that achieved mineral exploration and development success with HDI -- including Great Basin Gold Limited, Detour Gold Corporation, Rockwell Diamonds Inc. and Anooraq Resources Corporation -- are now independently managed. On January 5, 2011, Farallon Mining Ltd. was acquired by Nyrstar NV in an all cash transaction valued at C$409 million. Continental Minerals Corporation was acquired by the Jinchuan Mining Group in April 2011 in a transaction valued at C$432 million. HDI is structured as a private mining group that provides management and technical services to a diverse portfolio of high-quality and high-growth mineral companies and properties. HDI sources and acquires mineral assets with significant potential for value growth. Between 1985 and 2010, HDI companies raised more than $1.4 billion in equity financing, while providing consistently superior shareholder returns. The compounded annual growth rate for all HDI company investments over that timeframe exceeds 25%. An investment of $10,000 made in 1986 would be valued at $3,000,000 in 2010, a return of 30,000%. This far exceeds most mining industry peers and benchmark indices. HDI has the technical capabilities and management experience to consistently and rapidly advance mineral properties through exploration, development, permitting, construction and into stable and profitable mine operations. It possesses a fully integrated, multi-disciplinary team of mining professionals with global experience and a proven track record of mineral development success. HDI management and professional staff are known for their versatility, creativity and passion to find the best solution to every development challenge. HDI's unique strengths and capabilities are applied to identify, qualify and acquire mineral assets with significant potential for value growth. They are also applied to accelerate the development of every HDI company, and to monetize value in the best interests of development partners. HDI is characterized by the drive and commitment of its founders, senior management and multi-disciplinary team. It is known for its technical excellence, experience and reliability. And it is passionate about bringing Responsible Mineral Development to life in creative ways for the benefit of shareholders, partners and communities. HDI is associated with the following companies: Heatherdale Resources Ltd., Curis Resources Ltd., Northcliff Resources Ltd., Rathdowney Resources Ltd., Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd., Amarc Resources Ltd., and Quartz Mountain Resources Ltd.

Proven Mine Finder Acquires Oban's Yukon Gold Exploration Portfolio At Bottom Of Market?
http://goldstocktrades.com/blog Gold may be coming off of a very low and long base after a more than five year historic bear market. Many people have forgotten the top jockeys in the junior mining industry who brought their shareholders ten baggers with million ounce gold discoveries. Most investors have a short attention span and can't remember events from a few months ago let alone a several years ago. In 2010, there was a $140 million dollar takeover of a Yukon Gold Explorer Underworld Resources by major gold producer Kinross. The success of the discovery was thanks to Founder and VP of Exploration Rob McLeod who is now CEO of IDM Mining (IDM.V or RVRCF). IDM's flagship project is Red Mountain located in British Columbia's Golden Triangle where there has been great success by other top gold companies such as Seabridge, Pretium and Barrick. Rob is no stranger to this area. His family has been mining around Stewart, BC since 1925. Insiders own 15% of the shares and IDM has some top notch strategic shareholders such as Oban, Lake Shore, Seabridge and Kinross. I believe as the gold price returns more attention will be paid to the advanced Red Mountain Project in BC. The favorable exchange rate improves the economics from the July 2014 PEA which had impressive economics with quick payback of 1.5 years and low cash costs of under $525 an ounce. The PEA was based on gold at $1250. IDM is actively permitting and planning on publishing a Feasibility by 2017. In addition to IDM's Red Mountain pay attention to the recent deal with Oban Mining to acquire 54 Properties in the Yukon. As gold moves higher, the Yukon will gain attraction and this portfolio had $25 million worth of work done on it by Ryan Gold. The IDM team is actively studying the data and as this bull market returns for gold exploration this Yukon Portfolio could create a lot of value, especially now that it is in the hands of a proven mine finder Rob McLeod. Remember he sold Underworld for $140 million, IDM market cap is less than 1/10th of that right now. Its just beginning to breakout above the 200 Day moving average so watch this one. Disclosure: Jeb Handwerger owns shares and warrants in IDM. The company is also a website sponsor so I do have a conflict of interest as I could benefit if the share price goes higher. I am not a financial advisor and small cap junior mining stocks are risky so you must do your own due diligence.
