Missing Michigan Copper: Ancient copper mines in U.P. Updated version

Had to make a few amendments A reading from ancient America Donald J. McMahon Symbologist/Researcher on the missing copper from Michigan. was there an ancient prehistoric PreDeluvian worldwide culture existing? People like Columbus were useful fools used as pawns, I never understood how it is Columbus gets the title of the one who discovered America when he didn't even land there, he landed way south It's not like he discovered Virginia or New York. He didn't even land in the US. Mainstream historians, archeology, geology All of the-ology's are in line with the church still. when you put them together it spells theology! Music from Doug Maxwell/Media right productions.video source material from http://ancientamerica.com/missing-pre... and Science frontiers - http://www.science-frontiers.com/cat-... Also music from Les Hayden" Not Really" I can no longer find it NOTE: When I mention the singling out the first "White man" to see Michigan copper, What it should have maybe been was the first Spaniard to see Michigan copper.Would he then represent all Spaniards? I would think not Or European man one can not clump people according to what shade of brown they are.Have you ever seen the experiment a teacher did with her students where each day she would designate a certain eye color that was to be ostracized for the day and right away the kids saw the schism of it all, for example, today all kids except those with blue eyes get to enjoy ice cream while blue-eyed kids must watch the others eat it something like that, I heard a wise person once say if you hate something you will come back in the next life as that what you hated, and I think that is a very good approach to take whether true or not . Just my thoughts on that, to be that way but it just continues Mike Wallace asked The actor Morgan Freeman how should we deal with it and he replied " Just stop talking about" I liked that answer.

EVIDENCE! Solomon's Mines are here! It's Atlantean=Viking trade in America! Ruled Egypt!
 
14:18
We explore the ports of King Solomon's Mines in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! I have always wanted to recreate Rider Haggard's story! This is I suppose one way of doing it! We visit the BIGGEST copper and gold mines of Ancient Times. Where else for Solomon's mines but here. Examine the facts... "In those days the Atlantic was navigable". The question is 'why'. For trade! Trading what? Copper ingots! (Orichalcum) which was controlled by none other than "Atlantis" = sunken UK/Doggerland! Apparently the mines were mined especially around 3000 BC. This was after the time of the sinking of most of UK/Doggerland, but not all of it. This is the bulk of the Ancient Irish = Viracocha trade with America! This ties into line with the Atlantean story of Atlanteans, ie Vikings trying to conquer everybody. After seeing this video, it's hard to dispute that the Vikings = Atlanteans may have controlled Egypt at one time as well! The similarities of Tut's Mask with Sutton Hoo mask raise another question: what's up with that!? Did Vikings actually conquer Egypt and is this why Tut has British DNA? The sheer, incredible amount of copper in the Keweenaw peninsula helped to turn the USA into a superpower. Did it do the same for 'Solomon?'

Out of Place Artifacts, The Michigan Tablets
 
01:40:40
Alex Koritz shares out of place artifacts with the AHRF, the controversial history of the thousands of ancient writings on tablets that his family once owned. These anceint tablets were found in North America by the tens of thousands, over a period that covered hundreds of years. Main stream academia not wanting to admit that there was inter continental travel between the old and new world before columbus declared them a fraud. Because of the old world languages contained on them and because of some of the biblical scenes some of them contained they were immediately dismissed. New evidences have been found to support the validity of these tablets. Glen Beck did an entire show on these artifacts in support of there authenticity. Alex shares his families insight on them and how you can view them for your self in person to see this amazing collection that is not known about.

"Prehistoric Alien Mines" Found On Lake Superior?
 
03:15
Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/MysteryHistory Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MysteryHistoryBook/ Lake Superior, the largest of the north American Great Lakes, it is also the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area. Believe to have first been inhabited 10,000 years ago after the retreat of the last Ice Age However, there exists copper mines upon many of the lakes islands, which many researchers have concluded to be prehistoric. A sophisticated array of tunnels litter the islands, or more specifically all of north America. Scarred by ancient mine pits as deep as 150 feet. Carbon-14 testing of wood remains found in sockets of copper artefacts indicated that they are at least 5700 years old. Although many have suggested that artefacts and evidence at some sites, has suggested a date far older than what has been put forward. For example, some investigators believe that the mines were not even built by humans, but are the remains of a sophisticated mining operation that was once undertaken by alien visitors many thousands of years ago. Similar in scale to the ancient Carolina Mica mines, Mica being a material which we use in electrical components. The ancient copper mines on Superiors isle royale for example, although predictable disputed, produced over 750,000 tons of copper for a sophisticated group of ancient, mystery miners. Findings published in 1961 within, “Prehistoric Copper Mining in the Lake Superior Region, by Roy Drier and Joseph Du Temple. It must be noted that all of these pregistoric mines show evidence of being abruptly abandoned, whether this is evidence of the death of an unknown king or queen, or evidence for catastrophe is unknown, all along lake shore are vestiges of this once highly successful, ancient operation. The most astonishing of remnants catalogued publicly, has to be the enormous lump of pure copper, found in 1771, near the bank of the Ontonagon river. In 1945 it was floated down river on a raft by a james k paul, and was eventually appropriated by an agent of the united states government, it was then shipped to Detroit and on to Washington, where it eventually slipped into the bowels of the Smithsonian. Known as the Ontonagon Boulder it weighs 3,708 pounds, it was apparently well known to Native Americans. According to the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, the boulder was used by tribe members to make offerings to its “manitou” or spirit, to seek improvement in their health and well-being. Just how old is the Ontonagon Boulder? Or indeed the mine in which it came from? Although many would like you to believe the mines are less than 5000 years of age, we think many factors surrounding them, suggest they are far older than that.

The Michigan Mine Mystery (See Description Below)
 
04:49
Please give me your opinion on this mystery in the comments section… In the video, I identify this abandoned mine as the Michigan Mine. I did so because this is how it was identified to me by a very knowledgeable local historian (who was herself advised by some of the mining old timers that were born and died in this area). However, after our visit, subsequent research leads me to believe that this may actually be the Nip & Tuck Company [Mine]. The Michigan Mine bordered the Nip & Tuck and the Nip & Tuck actually purchased the Michigan Mine in 1869 in order to obtain control of their ground. So, it is understandable that the names could be confused or even used interchangeably. However, I want to be as precise as possible with this stuff… So, tell me what you think: The Michigan Mine and the Nip & Tuck were both placer claims. However, the Michigan Mine was an adit driven back 3,000 feet into the Gibsonville Ridge. The Nip & Tuck Mine is described as being situated where a tunnel would have been too great of an expense to run and so a shaft was driven down to a depth of 230 feet. The work in this shaft was aided by a large steam engine situated next to the mine shaft. Further, there is a description of an area below the mine being used for washing the gravel being hauled out. Now, tell me that what you see in the video doesn’t look a lot more like the description of the Nip & Tuck instead of the Michigan Mine? There are documents indicating that 40 men worked at the Nip & Tuck Mine in 1870. And, although not a trace remains, there was supposedly an engine house built over the steam engine in addition to an abundance of skip cars and flumes on the site. The Nip & Tuck was apparently a profitable mine as an 1871 issue of Mining & Scientific Press describes the mine as returning a profit of 100% over expenses the previous autumn. The Michigan Mine, at its peak, apparently had 15 men working and even had a blacksmith living on site with his family. ***** 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 If you like these videos on exploring abandoned mines, please subscribe! https://goo.gl/yjPxH1 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, 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

Copper01
 
01:21
During the course of mining the enormously rich Copper lodes of the Upper Peninsula, as the locals call it, there were a number of forms of Native Copper encountered that are unique to the area. Rounded, hollow structures of metallic Copper called "skulls" (for their obvious resemblance to the other variety) are found only here. In addition, many of the mines produced actual crystals of Copper as well. What couldn't be anticipated was a hybrid that mixed those two types. As far as we know, this little wonder has no siblings: i.e. there is only one. Like a diminutive Faberge egg, the rounded exterior conceals a sharp dodecahedral Copper crystal peering out from the dark interior of the "skull." Because that crystal blocks the hollow interior of the "skull," there is a different view of the same crystal when viewed from a second "cavity" on the opposite side. The patina is the classic one acquired by Native Copper specimens that have been out of the ground for a very long time. Overall measurements: 3 x 2 x 1.5 inches (7.6 x 6.4 x 3.8 cm).

Abandoned Dredge and Copper Mine:  Inside Look!
 
11:31
Exploring some old Copper Mining ruins (https://amzn.to/2KaB6dk) and a shored 100+ year old Dredge outside the towns of Houghton and Hancock, Upper Michigan, known as the Quincy Mine area. **Copper County Quincy Mine Field Guide: https://amzn.to/2KaB6dk The building was a drop point and grinding/crushing facility for the raw mining material (copper). Once it was crushed, they would use chemicals to get the copper sulfides out of the rock. From there it went across the street to the smelter and then shipped out down the channel. If you look closely in the building you will notice the concrete is actually "bleeding" and creating stalactites and stalagmites on the roof and floor. I am not sure if this is natural erosion found with old concrete structures or a possible side effect from using the mining chemicals in this building. You could definitely tell it was contributing to the decay of the building supports/foundations. Most of the concrete in these areas are crumbling like they are made of paper-mache. The Dredge was old, crumbling, and very difficult to get in. Although technically climbing and exploring the Dredge is not permitted due to safety, its pretty cool to climb around a decaying structure this large from 100 years ago. Just do so at your own Risk :) The technology in the Dredge is old, but still very impressive! Most of the Smelting building (or what I believe is the smelter) is gone. The only thing that remains is the smoke stack and coal hopper. Both of which are pretty impressive. The coal hopper even had some coal left in it. **Copper County Explorer Quincy Field Guide: https://amzn.to/2KaB6dk --PLAYLIST on all Sights & Adventures: https://goo.gl/8n1VKi Thanks for Watching, and don’t forget to Like, Share, and Subscribe!
