This mine is located in remote Nevada. As with the other mines in the area, this one was also very damp and muddy. This mine site featured a well-preserved dynamite storage locker and picturesque ore bin outside the mine's portal. Inside the mine, I found animal paw prints in the mud.

This is a MIND-BLOWING tale of how the Earth impacts society and, ultimately, politics. Donald Trump owes his election win against Hillary Clinton, to GEOLOGY! DON'T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE. Take a extraordinary trip, from the initiation of photosynthesis, to massive mountain building 300 million years ago. These events provided the natural resources that drove the industrial revolution in the US Northeast which eventually ended due to...again, Geology! The rise and fall of US northeastern cities and the resulting economic decline that led to voters electing Trump is a tale fundamentally routed in the Earth Sciences. In this video you will learn about geological theories, concepts and principals, including: : Oceanic oxygenation due to the start of photosynthesis : Banded Iron Formations : The Variscan Orogeny that formed the Appalachians Mountains, 300 million years ago : Foreland Basins and coal formation : The extraction of raw materials and steel production.

This is a video of Jared and I exploring a large well preserved ghost town called Eckleys Miners' Village. I tried to get everything I could see here in one good video. Took this video on 3/26/16 Eckley Miners' Village in eastern Pennsylvania is an anthracite coal mining patch town that dates back to the early 1800's. Located near Hazleton, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, in the United States The Molly Maguires a 1970 film was filmed in Eckley in 1969. The wooden "coal breaker" featured heavily in the film was built as a prop. It received little or no maintenance over the years and, even though it has been called a tinderbox, it still stands today — over 40 years later. The company store was also built as a prop for the movie and still stands today. The filming of the movie resulted in the town's being saved from demolition, and it was afterward turned into a mining museum under the control of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.

Born into a family of miners and raised in a coal mining community, Mike's long involvement with the mining industry in Utah began as an underground miner, moved into the role of government affairs specialist for a variety of mining companies, and finally included several decades in the State Legislature. Mike discusses his government affairs role and his concern over the possible impacts federal rules could have on Utah's coal industry. He also talks about how he was able to influence state and federal rules from his chair in the legislature. Among the discussion points are MSHA rules, taxes on coal production, compliance with the Surface Mining Act and Environmental Protection Agency regulations, the marketability of Utah coal, and the establishment of the current Abandoned Mines Program within the Utah Division of Oil, Gas, and Mining. Interspersed throughout the interview are Mike's observations about growing up in coal-rich Carbon County, Utah.

Harrison Wick, IUP Special Collections librarian and university archivist, spoke about his new book, "Luzerne County," on February 24, 2011, as part of IUP Libraries' Breakfast-and-a-Book series. The Susquehanna River meanders through Luzerne County in northeastern Pennsylvania, passing communities historically known for the mining of anthracite coal. Settlement of the area began in 1769 during the first Yankee-Pennamite War. "Luzerne County" illustrates many boroughs, townships, and villages in a rare collection of photographs, advertisements, and history dating back to the eighteenth century. Historical photographs from the Luzerne County Historical Society depict businesses, churches, coal culture, street scenes, area disasters, entertainment, railroads, steamboats, and veterans, including the last survivor of the Battle of Wyoming in 1778 and the Civil War.

The Mining Foundation of the Southwest is pleased to announce that James D. Toole is the 2013 Inductee into the American Mining Hall of Fame . James D. Toole, past President and CEO of Southwest Energy, LLC, was born into a coal mining family in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania. He began his mining career working in open cut strip mines. After graduating from King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and completing service in the U.S. Marine Corps, Toole was hired by the explosives division of Hercules Inc. in 1965. His first assignment was in the Minnesota Iron Range where he lived with his wife Molly. Three years later, Toole and his family were transferred to the Panama Canal Zone where he worked on the canal widening project. After his work in Panama, a third transfer found Toole, Molly, and their three children in Tucson where copper mining was expanding. Also expanding was the Toole family with the addition of three more children in the following years. In May 1973, Toole took an innovative approach to the application of bulk blasting agents; he left Hercules and founded Southwest Energy. Four months later, Southwest Energy purchased Hercules' Arizona operations. Soon Southwest began to broaden its business affiliations beyond Arizona. In early 1980 Southwest Energy took an equity position in Apache Powder Company, now known as Apache Nitrogen Products Inc. in Benson, Arizona. After adding additional bulk loading capacity and blast hole drilling throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Southwest Energy formed a joint venture in 2000 with SASOL, a South African chemical and energy company. As a result of this joint venture, Southwest Energy gained access to explosive technologies, electronic detonators, and a unique form of ammonium nitrate prill called EXPAN. After three years, the joint venture dissolved when SASOL exited the global explosives market, leaving Southwest Energy in a stronger market position with expanded product capabilities. In 2008 Southwest Energy created a new joint venture with Orica, the largest explosives company in the world based in Melbourne, Australia. With the innovative explosives technologies and strong manufacturing base of Orica, Southwest Energy continues to provide even greater value to its mining customers. Today, Southwest Energy has multiple facilities, distribution sites, and blasting operations across the western United States. During the company's 40-year history, Toole believes that the greatest assets of Southwest Energy are the exceptional employees and the willingness of the company to share its profitability with all of its people and the communities where they live and work. Southwest Energy's mission has always been and continues to be the creation of opportunity for its employees by bringing ever increasing value to its customers.

Minanca is carrying out exploration programs including drilling that are designed to provide a better understanding of structural geology, and extend the zones of mineralization. Minanca's medium to long term objective is to define resources outside the present mining zones of sufficient tonnages and grades that may eventually permit the company to engage in open pit mining. In 2006, the property had a small scale gold production from underground workings. In 2004 the property produced in excess of 200,000 grams from 58,000 tonnes from one easily accessible vein structure. In 2002 underground mining resumed on the upper two levels of the mine, with modest production presently at the rate of 25,000 grams per month. The project was in production until 1950 when Asarco terminated production due to low gold prices, when gold was valued at $35.00 an ounce. Asarco had completed over 14 levels of underground development and workings below the adit entrance. The Minanca property has been continuously mined since 1845 and mining in the region dates back to the 1600's.

This is a one hour and fifteen minute Oral History of Bernie Stiroh on Duryea, PA set to a slideshow to visualize the spoken words. Mary T. Policare and Michael Lizonitz of the Greater Pittston Historical Society interviewed Bernie in September of 2015 to record his extensive knowledge and in depth research of his family and the history of Duryea. PLEASE NOTE: The recorder we used skips a few times and a word or phrase may be garbled. However, we felt it would be impossible to get the same results if we redid the interview so we hope these few minor glitches will be overlooked. This interview covers many topics including coal mining, schools, businesses, sports, entertainment, and most of all, the families who lived and worked in Duryea, PA. to name just a few.

Tony and I headed out to the Woodstock Mine recently to do some underground exploring. While there, Tony shot his Colt Single Action Army revolver that he recently acquired. This video contains footage of this collectible, historic revolver in action. The Woodstock Mine was discovered in 1895. It was mined for gold in the early 1910s and 1920s and then lay dormant. Mining resumed in the late 1930s until the mine was closed in 1942 due to the Presidential order closing all mines. Some later work was done in the mid-1970s but not much. We found three raises going upward to upper levels in the mine. We also came across a yellow-colored jacket made out of rain jacket material. The mine features two heavily timbered portals as well as substantial timbering in the tunnels due to the very crumbly nature of the rock. One drift tunnel in the mine led to a what looked like a small body of talc.
