• Gold mines in Goldfield, Nevada (SCARY DEEP) 20 mines found!!!

    Filmed on 3-11-17. Sorry, but the first, and last part of the video got ruined. I dropped my camera, and broke it. Sean, and I take you through Goldfield mining district. This is just a fraction of the abandoned mines in Goldfield. Though some of the largest, and biggest producer's of gold in the world. We take right up close, and show you how close they are to each other. In 1906 Goldfield, Nevada had a population of around 30,000 residents. It was the most populated city in Nevada at the time. They were going to move the capital of Nevada to Goldfield. As the gold dwindled away so did the thought of making Goldfield the capital. Please enjoy, and thanks for watching. Christian

  • Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 1

    Consistent with its status as one of the biggest abandoned mines in Nevada, it requires a hike of thousands of feet and a significant elevation decline just to get down to where the underground workings really begin at this massive mine… As can be seen near the start of this video, there are twin portals and passages running parallel down to the underground workings. Our guess was that this was because one passage was for traffic entering the mine and the other for traffic departing the mine. Deep underneath the mountain, the passages converge on a main hub from which drifts branch out in all directions. At the heart of this hub is a breakroom and a large workshop. A large drift takes off to the right from the workshop, while to the left a drift meanders away and another passage descends d...

  • The Horton Mine: Encountering a Ghost in a Haunted, Abandoned Mine (Summer 2013)

    I had a startling encounter with the supernatural while exploring the abandoned Horton Mine located near the massive Victorine Mine in Nevada. The Horton Mine dates back to the mid-1800s. I have been inside over a hundred abandoned mines, but this one was definitely the creepiest. As I ventured hesitantly down the tunnel, it felt more and more wrong. You'll see in the video the supernatural occurrence that caused me to ultimately turn around and head back out of the tunnel.

    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 m...

    As promised, I recently returned to the haunted Horton Mine to fully explore it no matter what happened. I first explored the mine almost a year ago but turned around after only going into it a hundred feet or so and encountering a supernatural presence that I caught on film. That video is here if you haven't seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReYbrlG4BAU This most recent follow-up exploration led me deep into the mine all the way to its flooded end where I was standing at the bottom of a 900-foot tall ore pass that had water cascading down it. As I was filming this dank area, I once again had a frightening encounter with an unknown presence. After this recent experience, I will never set foot inside the Horton Mine again. Never.

  • Nevada Abandoned Mine Exploration: Two Unnamed Mines

    These two unnamed mines were only about a mile apart from each other in Nevada. Both were very similar in how they both were tunnels dug underneath quarries. In fact, outside on the quarry floors there were signs warning of large, underground caverns. The mines weren't that extensive, but they were interesting to explore. The second mine in the video has a very classic mine adit.

  • Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 2

    After exploring what was possible to explore (or that we were willing to explore) off to the left side of the main hub of this gigantic mine, we made our way back over to explore the right side. This meant heading down the large passage taking off from the underground workshop… The number of drifts and inclines fanning out in all directions was staggering and we had to stay focused in order to maintain some order in our exploring. Fortunately, we were able to get into areas of open stoping (with natural support) on this side of the mine and to see some of the minerals the miners were seeking. Additionally, on several occasions, we were able to look up to (or down to) different levels in this mine, suggesting that the underground workings were even greater than we had already imagined.

  • Exploring a Sketchy Silver Mine and Finding a Guzzler

    Unique and sketchy. That's how I would describe this small silver mine that dates back to the late 1800s. The enormous amount of neatly stacked waste rock inside the mine was most impressive in addition to the classic timbering. Nearby was a wildlife guzzler of which I was not familiar with. Turns out guzzlers are places in the desert where wildlife can obtain water. It was an interesting device to stumble across in the remote desert.

  • Nelson Ghost Town, Nevada

    **PLEASE NOTE** Nelson Ghost Town is its official name. It was abandoned for some time before being purchased by the present owners. Now it's used for movie and photo shoots. It is a tourist attraction, but it's the least commercialized as the others. The others I saw were completely rebuilt back to original state as well as roped off like a museum. This was the least touched out of them all, as stated in my narration in the beginning of the video. This ghost town is in South Nevada in Nelson, El Dorado Canyon. It was first named "El Dorado" by the Spaniards when they first discovered it in 1775. This ghost town used to be a thriving miners' town with 3 mines which operated from 1859 to 1945 at the end of World War II. It was one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada where they mi...

  • Nevada's Abandoned Hughes Mine

    Mines – abandoned or otherwise – almost always seem to present surprises for explorers… This lead and silver mine in the Nevada has a series of shafts running along the upper edge of the property. Some of these shafts are quite large and deep. So, when I came across an extremely large, modern adit leading toward this cluster of shafts, I assumed this was a haulage adit of sorts that tied into the shafts. I was mistaken. And, as my opening sentence implied, I was surprised by the reality of the large adit. This mine appears to have been worked over at least several decades. The mill building and headframe have been completely demolished and some of the shafts have decayed quite considerably. However, that adit was probably no older than the 1980s and the main shaft was in fairly decent sh...

Our guess was that this was because one passage was for traffic entering the mine and the other for traffic departing the mine. Deep underneath the mountain, the passages converge on a main hub from which drifts branch out in all directions. At the heart of this hub is a breakroom and a large workshop. A large drift takes off to the right from the workshop, while to the left a drift meanders away and another passage descends deeper into the bowels of the mountain. In this first video, we explore the hub of the mine as well as the workings taking off to the left from the hub. Following the descending passage, we were eventually blocked by flooding as the mine workings continue deep beneath the water level inside of the mine. One can only imagine how many miles of workings are under those dark waters. Fortunately, the other main drift taking off to the left was on a slight upward incline and so the water drained down and (mostly) out. With the miles of underground workings at this abandoned mine stretching well into the double digits, one might expect there to be quite a lot of information available on this site. However, that is not the case. There is surprisingly little information to be found online and the various government agencies involved with this site have done a pretty thorough job of scrubbing references to it from their public databases. ***** 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 #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!

I visited this very interesting mine and mining camp on the fourth day of my 2017 trip. The Belmont Mine is located high on a mountainside, in the Hamilton District of central Nevada. Ore from the mine was transported via aerial cable tram to the mill, three miles away in the bottom of the canyon. Go to this page on my website to see many more photos of Belmont Mine, NV: http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Hamilton-Belmont_Mine_NV.html Be sure to check out the rest of my videos from this trip!

These two unnamed mines were only about a mile apart from each other in Nevada. Both were very similar in how they both were tunnels dug underneath quarries. In fact, outside on the quarry floors there were signs warning of large, underground caverns. The mines weren't that extensive, but they were interesting to explore. The second mine in the video has a very classic mine adit.

After exploring what was possible to explore (or that we were willing to explore) off to the left side of the main hub of this gigantic mine, we made our way back over to explore the right side. This meant heading down the large passage taking off from the underground workshop… The number of drifts and inclines fanning out in all directions was staggering and we had to stay focused in order to maintain some order in our exploring. Fortunately, we were able to get into areas of open stoping (with natural support) on this side of the mine and to see some of the minerals the miners were seeking. Additionally, on several occasions, we were able to look up to (or down to) different levels in this mine, suggesting that the underground workings were even greater than we had already imagined. Interestingly, this side of the abandoned mine was in far better shape than the other side and we encountered hardly any water. I should mention that with this mine I have edited many, many hours of exploring down to a manageable clip that shows the noteworthy features, but spares my dear viewers the tedious viewing of us walking, walking, walking and walking some more (and then walking some more) down miles of featureless drifts. The primary mineral extracted at this mine was zinc, but copper, lead, silver and even molybdenum, among other minerals, were recovered as well. Headframe Hunters, who was kind enough to do some research on this mine for us, had the following to share on the geology of the mine: “It was a mid-grade zinc mine - the primary zinc ore type mined is sphalerite (zinc sulfide, commonly called jack), which explains the acid mine drainage and hydrogen sulfide you encountered. The deposit is probably an igneous-hosted hydrothermal vein-type deposit; a limestone-hosted MVT like we have in Missouri would have buffered out all the acid.” Ultimately, this mine closed due to a period of low zinc prices rather than because the mine was played out. There are actually a significant quantity of valuable minerals still underground at this abandoned mine. * Thank you to Headframe Hunters and Mines of the West for the information they were able to dredge up on this abandoned mine * ***** 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

Belmont is a very old mining town in central Nevada, dating back to 1865. I visited it on the fifth day of my 2017 Nevada/Mojave ghost town trip, concentrating mainly on the mills and other ruins at the east end. The most prominent of these is a huge brick chimney built in 1868 for the Combination Mill.

Unique and sketchy. That's how I would describe this small silver mine that dates back to the late 1800s. The enormous amount of neatly stacked waste rock inside the mine was most impressive in addition to the classic timbering. Nearby was a wildlife guzzler of which I was not familiar with. Turns out guzzlers are places in the desert where wildlife can obtain water. It was an interesting device to stumble across in the remote desert.

**PLEASE NOTE** Nelson Ghost Town is its official name. It was abandoned for some time before being purchased by the present owners. Now it's used for movie and photo shoots. It is a tourist attraction, but it's the least commercialized as the others. The others I saw were completely rebuilt back to original state as well as roped off like a museum. This was the least touched out of them all, as stated in my narration in the beginning of the video. This ghost town is in South Nevada in Nelson, El Dorado Canyon. It was first named "El Dorado" by the Spaniards when they first discovered it in 1775. This ghost town used to be a thriving miners' town with 3 mines which operated from 1859 to 1945 at the end of World War II. It was one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada where they mined gold, silver, copper and lead yielding over $6 million. The town is made up of three (now abandoned) mines; Techatticup, Wall Street, and El Dorado Rand Group. The source of transportation for goods was by steamboat on the Colorado River just at the end of the road. Most of the miners here were deserters from the Civil War. The town and mines had a very bad reputation as it was a lawless community being so isolated from the Sheriff and civilization. There were many killings and feuds here, so much so that it was an ordinary occurance. The U.S. Army set up an outpost here in 1867 to protect the community and riverboats' freight from Native Americans. The army left the camp in 1869 and the mines thrived once again until the end of the war. The movie '3000 Miles to Graceland' with Kevin Costner and Kurt Russel used this area as part of their movie shoot where they blew up an airplane on-site. Remnants of the airplane were left behind and shown in this video. Thanks for watching!

Mines – abandoned or otherwise – almost always seem to present surprises for explorers… This lead and silver mine in the Nevada has a series of shafts running along the upper edge of the property. Some of these shafts are quite large and deep. So, when I came across an extremely large, modern adit leading toward this cluster of shafts, I assumed this was a haulage adit of sorts that tied into the shafts. I was mistaken. And, as my opening sentence implied, I was surprised by the reality of the large adit. This mine appears to have been worked over at least several decades. The mill building and headframe have been completely demolished and some of the shafts have decayed quite considerably. However, that adit was probably no older than the 1980s and the main shaft was in fairly decent shape and probably dates to around the time the adit was constructed. I am uncertain as to the age of the ore bin and I do not have enough experience with them to offer an intelligent guess. The ore bin ended up being probably my favorite thing about this mine site… Although, I was also taken by the number of jackrabbits (they are actually hares) and by the number of barrels of cyanide in the dry wash. I really wanted to provide some drone footage so we could see an overview of the site, but the controller just would not connect to the drone that day. Very frustrating. As I often say, technology is great when it works. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!
