Exploring Monte Cristo's Abandoned Mystery Mine (Part 2 of 2)
Here is the second part to the 2-part Mystery Mine series! If you missed the first part, make sure to check it out first here: https://youtu.be/nOArC-bbJks The Mystery Mine complex contains over 12,000ft of underground workings on three primary levels. This series focuses on the lowest of those levels, the Mystery #3. The Mystery #3 was the main haulage tunnel servicing the Mystery, Pride of the Woods, and Pride of the Mountains Mines. The tunnel passes under Mystery Ridge, Glacier Creek, and Cadet Peak! This complex of mines was by-far the most significant in the Monte Cristo Mining District. The Pride-Mystery complex produced over 300,000 tons of ore, accounting for 85-90% of district production. The Mystery #3 adit outlets to a tram terminal which connected to the concentrator down near the townsite. The Pride Mines are located on the other side of Mystery Ridge, most of the Pride workings are inaccessible. The mines are all connected via stopes and raises. The Mystery Mine was one of John D. Rockefeller's ventures. In fact, Monte Cristo likely would not have been as significant as it was if it weren't for Mr. Rockefeller's money. The mine was discovered in the 1890's and was abandoned by 1907. Ore material contained Pyrite, Arsenopyrite, Chalcopyrite, Galena, and others. The minerals recovered were gold, silver, lead, arsenic.

Crystal Hunting in the North Pennines (Summer 2017)
School Summer Holidays 2017 Please consider supporting me by buying me a coffee: https://ko-fi.com/northernwayfarer After I found a nice quartz cluster when hiking up Cross Fell, my daughter was eager to go looking for crystals. So I gave her some choices for the summer break and she chose to go crystal hunting. Our first visit was Groverake Mine and Frazer's Hush as these used to mine for fluorite. We picked up a couple of small samples but the place had clearly been looked at by other people. We found a place where they had covered up a site where they had been digging into one of the smaller hushes for better commercial value crystals and a quick look on ebay suggests they were professional hunters. Our next outing we headed up to the fluorite mine at Middlehope. If you visit this area you need to be careful because the lead mines further down stream are protected sites. But the fluorite mine is not but it is still private land and taking rock samples without permission is technically illegal. So use your commonsense if you are out. I am not a geologist but I've been learning quite a bit on our outings as we try to identify our findings. The two samples I mention about finding near Nenthead were not from the Nenthead site. Do not take stuff from there. I found what I think is Dolomite in a stream on the other side of Flinty fell. The piece that I am hoping is Alstonite but probably quartz, I literally picked up from the side of the road when I stopped to do the timelapse in my last mines video. All the rest are from various streams in the North Pennines... we were out just about every week, sometimes a couple of times a week. We bumped into a few professional hunters collecting crystals for jewellery or to tumble and sell on ebay. Also a couple of amateur geologists and rockhounds. Once you get into the habit of checking the geology where you are walking, you find stuff like the Cheviot agates which, we picked up on our last two hikes in the Cheviot hills. There were many and the two that we picked up were of no value. Even the nice quartz cluster I picked up is of no monetary value because it has substantial damage on the top. All in all it was great fun. We both learned a lot about geology and it was a good bonding experience with my daughter. Our minerals: Quartz, Fluorite (Fluorspar), Sphalerite (Zinc ore)?, Calcite, Dolomite?, Agate, Ironstone (Iron ore), Galena (Lead/Silver ore). ----- Music Hooky with Sloane by Bird Creek Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Music provided by FreeMusic109 https://youtube.com/FreeMusic109 Ether by Silent Partner: https://youtu.be/r6En29azNBA lifepainting by Muciojad https://soundcloud.com/muciojad Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported— CC BY-SA 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Music provided by Audio Library https://youtu.be/3feCSMbSZQA ----- Thank you for watching Please comment, Like & Subscribe Please consider supporting me by buying me a coffee: https://ko-fi.com/northernwayfarer

Why This Town Has Been On Fire For 50 Years
This week Reactions is shining light on why a small town in PA, Centralia, has been on fire for over 50 years. It's because of science. Well, chemistry, technically. In 1962, an underground fire started in the coal-mining town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. Fifty-three years later, that fire still burns. In this week’s episode of Reactions, we explain the history and science behind the Centralia mine fire. Does anyone still live there? How could the fire keep burning for so long, and why hasn’t it been extinguished? From a chemical standpoint, what is fire, anyway?

IKS Real History Bunker and Tunnel Explortaion Team
IKS Production 2011 Historic Depths investigating the historic places in Depth! In and around Kent. Urban exploration (often shortened as urbex or UE) is the examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities.[1] Urban exploration is also commonly referred to as infiltration, although some people consider infiltration to be more closely associated with the exploration of active or inhabited sites. It may also be referred to as "draining" (when exploring drains) "urban spelunking", "urban caving", or "building hacking". The nature of this activity presents various risks, including both physical danger and the possibility of arrest and punishment. Many, but not all, of the activities associated with urban exploration could be considered trespassing or other violations of local or regional laws, including—but not limited to—invasion of privacy and certain broadly-interpreted anti-terrorism laws. Mine exploration is a hobby in which people visit abandoned mines, quarries, and sometimes operational mines. Enthusiasts usually engage in such activities for the purpose of exploration and documentation, sometimes through the use of surveying and photography. In this respect, mine exploration might be considered a type of amateur industrial archaeology. In many ways, however, it is closer to caving, with many participants actively interested in exploring both mines and caves. Mine exploration typically requires equipment such as helmets, head lamps, Wellington boots, and climbing gear. Mine exploration typically involves less crawling and more walking than caving, since mines were purposefully excavated to allow human access. Some disused mines have been adapted for tourism, or use by organized outdoor recreation groups. Conversely, gaining access to other mines may require technical skills such as rappelling or Single Rope Technique. Such techniques may also be used inside a mine to explore a winze, shaft, or steep incline. Similarly, some traverses and slopes may be roped for safety, particularly if organized groups are taken into the mine. Mine exploration shares some interests with Urban Exploration, primarily that of gaining access to abandoned or sometimes restricted locations. Most mine explorers share an unspoken code of ethics, that of leaving sites in the same condition as they were found. A common phrase illustrating this viewpoint is the Baltimore Grotto caving society's motto: "take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints." Caving—also occasionally known as spelunking in the United States and potholing in the United Kingdom—is the recreational pastime of exploring wild (generally non-commercial) cave systems. In contrast, speleology is the scientific study of caves and the cave environment.[1] The challenges involved in the activity depend on the cave being visited, but often include the negotiation of pitches, squeezes, and water (although actual cave diving is a separate sub-specialty undertaken only by very few cavers). Climbing or crawling is often necessary, and ropes are used extensively for safe negotiation of particularly steep or slippery passages. Caves have been explored out of necessity (for shelter from the elements or from enemies), out of curiosity or for mystical reasons for thousands of years. However, only in the last century or two has the activity developed into a sophisticated, athletic pastime. In recent decades, caving has changed considerably due to the availability of modern protective wear and equipment. It has recently come to be known as an "extreme sport" by some (though not commonly considered as such by its practitioners, who may dislike the term for its perceived connotation of disregard for safety). Many of the skills involved in caving can also be put to use in mine exploration and urban exploration.

Haunted Graveyard with ghosts & Spirits..?

Where is This Graveyard..?
LOCATION: Riverside Historical Cemetery - Denver, Colorado
Denver's Oldest Cemetery - Riverside Cemetery is the longest continually operating cemetery in Denver, and one of the most significant historical resources in Colorado. Noting the importance of the 77-acre site, the cemetery was designated a National Historic District in 1992. Now surrounded by the gritscape of a disparate industrial district, partly in the City and County of Denver and partly in Adams County, the cemetery is in a state of rapid decline.

Haunted Graveyard with ghosts & Spirits..? Riverside Cemetery occupies a 77-acre site between Brighton Boulevard and the east bank of the South Platte River, approximately 4 miles down stream from downtown Denver, Colorado. The majority of Riverside Cemetery lies within Adams County, Colorado, however the rest of the cemetery, the cemeteries' entrance and administration building, are within the City and County of Denver. Riverside Cemetery originally was the property of the Riverside Cemetery Association from its founding in 1876 until 1900 when the association's assets were transferred to the Fairmount Cemetery Association (presently known as Fairmount Cemetery Company). In late 2000, Fairmount Cemetery Company along with members of the community founded the Fairmount Heritage Foundation to be a educational resource for the community and to protect and preserve the heritage of both the company's properties: Riverside Cemetery and Fairmount Cemetery. The volunteers of this foundation staff the Riverside Cemetery Office on Tuesdays and Thursdays and organize events and preservation projects for the cemeteries. History When first opened, the graveyard's secluded location on the banks of the South Platte River and the surrounding greenery made it a popular choice for wealthy families; the opening of the Burlington Railroad in the 1890s changed this, spurring industrial growth in the neighborhood, and some families chose to have their relatives' remains exhumed and reburied elsewhere. Prominent people continued to be interred there, with ornate headstones to mark their graves; however, the proportion of unmarked graves rose dramatically, as counties from all over the state sent the bodies of their impoverished dead citizens there. Riverside remained the area's most significant cemetery until the mid-20th century, and retains importance for scholars studying in the early history of Denver, as the city kept no systematic death records until 1910. Today, the neighborhood has become a largely industrial area, surrounded by a gas station, smokestacks, train tracks, and an industrial park, a few blocks from Interstate 70. It remains a minor tourist attraction; in 2001, 3,000 people went on walking tours of the site. The cemetery's final grave site was assigned in July 2005; the management company, Fairmount Cemetery Inc., indicated that they would not accept further burials after that, because they were losing money on each sale. They have also stopped watering and cut back drastically on services, claiming that their $2.1 million endowment, which generated roughly $62,000 per year in interest, was not enough to water the property and properly maintain all the graves; their records show that they lost $159,000 in 2003. They still employ two groundskeepers to pick up trash, but have had to refuse offers of maintenance help from volunteers due to liability issues. In 2005, Fairmount approached the city government and requested they take over operation of the cemetery; however, the city were forced to decline due to lack of funds. Local residents, concerned by the dying trees and grass and generally poor state of the cemetery, formed a group, Friends of Historic Riverside Cemetery, to bring public attention to the issue. They requested the assistance of a local Orthodox church whose founders are buried there; Fairmount indicated that they would be willing to transfer the endowment and operations of the cemetery to a group that could provide an additional trust of $1 million to cover operating expenses.

Big Muskie - The Largest Walking Dragline Ever Built
Standing 22 stories tall and weighing 13,500 metric tons, Big Muskie was the world's largest dragline and the biggest machine that has ever walked on the face of the earth. With the boom down, it was almost 500 ft in length. Big Muskie was a coal mining Bucyrus-Erie dragline owned by the Central Ohio Coal Company. It removed more than twice the amount of earth moved during the construction of the Panama Canal. Its bucket could hold two Greyhound buses side by side. I was talking to a guy in a bar in Fort Stockton,Texas in 2001. When I told him I was from Ohio he said he just came back from Ohio. He was on a crew that was cutting up "Big Muskie". He said he was there a year outside of Zanesville. He was surprised that I never heard of Big Muskie. I was surprised when he said it took a year to cut up. Here's why.....

Down At The Bottom   [ original song ]
a Coal Miners Song © t. hutton 2014, FOR MORE GO TO ----- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KehdPoDZ4eY --- In England, The Oaks explosion remains the worst mining accident, claiming 388 lives on 12 December 1866 near Barnsley in Yorkshire. The Hulton Colliery explosion at Westhoughton, Lancashire, in 1910 claimed the lives of 344 miners. An explosion in 1878, at the Wood Pit, Haydock, Lancashire, killed over 200 workers, although only 189 were included in the 'official list'. Another disaster that killed many miners was the Hartley Colliery Disaster, which occurred in January 1862 when the beam of the main steam winding engine broke suddenly and fell into the single shaft serving the pit. It blocked the shaft, and entombed hundreds of miners. The final death toll was 204, most of whom were suffocated by the lack of oxygen in the mine atmosphere. In the metalliferous mines of Cornwall, some of the worst accidents were at East Wheal Rose in 1846, where 39 workers were killed by a sudden flood; at Levant mine in 1919, where 31 were killed and many injured in a failure of the man engine;[33] 12 killed at Wheal Agar in 1883 when a cage fell down a shaft;[34] and seven killed at Dolcoath mine in 1893 when a large stull collapsed. Scotland The worst mining accident in Scotland is the 1877 Blantyre mining disaster in Blantyre, Lanarkshire, which claimed 207 lives. For several tense days in September 1950, another worst accident happened on the small Ayrshire mining village. The world paused with bated breath as rescuers battled bravely against all odds to reach the 129 men trapped deep underground when a field above where they were working caved-in, flooding the mine workings with thick liquid peat, cutting off all means of escape. Wales Crowd gathering at the pit head of the Senghenydd Colliery after the explosion in October 1913 During the period 1850 to 1930 the South Wales coalfield had the worst disaster record. This was due to the increasing number of mines being sunk to greater depths into gas-containing strata, combined with poor safety and management practices. As a result there were nearly forty underground explosions in the Glamorgan and Monmouthshire areas of the coalfield during this time. Each accident resulted in the deaths of twenty or more workers - either directly in the explosion or by suffocation by the poisonous gases formed. The total death toll from these disasters was 3,119 people. The four worst accidents in Wales were: 439 deaths at the Senghenydd Colliery Disaster at Universal Colliery in Senghenydd, Glamorgan, in a gas explosion in 1913. 290 deaths at the Albion Colliery in Cilfynydd, Glamorgan, in a gas explosion on 25 June 1894. 272 deaths at the Prince of Wales Colliery, Abercarn, Monmouthshire, in an explosion of 11 September 1878. 266 deaths in the Gresford Disaster near Wrexham in North Wales on 22 September 1934. Some collieries, e.g. Morfa Colliery near Port Talbot, Glamorgan, and Black Vein Colliery, Risca, Monmouthshire, suffered three disasters before they were closed for being unsafe. United States The Monongah Mining Disaster was the worst mining accident of American history; 362 workers were killed in an underground explosion on December 6, 1907 in Monongah, West Virginia. From 1880 to 1910, mine accidents claimed thousands of fatalities. Where annual mining deaths had numbered more than 1,000 a year during the early part of the 20th century, they decreased to an average of about 500 during the late 1950s, and to 93 during the 1990s. In addition to deaths, many thousands more are injured (an average of 21,351 injuries per year between 1991 and 1999), but overall there has been a downward trend of deaths and injuries. In 1959, the Knox Mine Disaster occurred in Port Griffith, Pennsylvania. The swelling Susquehanna river collapsed into a mine under it and resulted in 12 deaths. In Plymouth, Pennsylvania, the Avondale Mine Disaster of 1869 resulted in the deaths of 108 miners and two rescue workers after a fire in the only shaft eliminated the oxygen in the mine. Federal laws for mining safety resulted from this disaster. Pennsylvania suffered another disaster in 2002 at Quecreek, 9 miners were trapped underground and subsequently rescued after 78 hours. During 2006, 72 miners lost their lives at work, 47 by coal mining. The majority of these fatalities occurred in Kentucky and West Virginia, including the Sago Mine Disaster.[40][41] On April 5, 2010, in the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster an underground explosion caused the deaths of 29 miners. The U.S. Bureau of Mines was created in 1910 to investigate accidents, advise industry, conduct production and safety research, and teach courses in accident prevention, first aid, and mine rescue. The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Acts of 1969 and 1977 set further safety standards for the mining.
