United States Gold Mining Claim - Arizona - 2017
The United States mine is located just outside of Cottonwood, Arizona, in the North Verde Mining District. The mine was worked as an open pit, therfore there are no underground workings. The mine has an extensive history of production and a massive amount of work was done at the site. Historically, the United States mine was worked for gold, copper, and silver, and the entire area is littered with copper ore. The ores are rich and in good supply, but will need to be processed in bulk to be profitable.

Minanca Mine
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.

US Mines & Mineral Resources: "United States: A Ten Talent Nation" 1922 American Motion Picture
Geology & Earth Sciences playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL33B1A9216BB65F7A more at http://scitech.quickfound.net Good overview of mining and mineral resources in the US as of 1922, with many nice film clips and lots of statistics. Reupload of a previously uploaded film with improved video & sound. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, or reef, which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal and oil shale, gemstones, limestone, and dimension stone, rock salt and potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stone and metal has been done since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. The nature of mining processes creates a potential negative impact on the environment both during the mining operations and for years after the mine is closed. This impact has led to most of the world's nations adopting regulations to moderate the negative effects of mining operations. Safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have improved safety in mines significantly... Mining in the United States became prevalent in the 19th century, and the General Mining Act of 1872 was passed to encourage mining of federal lands. As with the California Gold Rush in the mid 19th century, mining for minerals and precious metals, along with ranching, was a driving factor in the Westward Expansion to the Pacific coast. With the exploration of the West, mining camps were established and "expressed a distinctive spirit, an enduring legacy to the new nation;" Gold Rushers would experience the same problems as the Land Rushers of the transient West that preceded them. Aided by railroads, many traveled West for work opportunities in mining. Western cities such as Denver and Sacramento originated as mining towns. As new areas were explored, it was usually the gold (placer and then load) and then silver that were taken first, with other metals often waiting for railroads or canals. Coarse gold dust and nuggets do not require smelting, is easy to identify and is easily transported. Modern period In the early 20th century, the gold and silver rush to the western United States also stimulated mining for base metals such as copper, lead, and iron as well as coal. Areas in modern Montana, Utah, Arizona, and later Alaska became predominate suppliers of copper to the world, which was increasingly demanding copper for electrical and households goods. Canada's mining industry grew more slowly than the United States due to limitations in transportation, capital, and U.S. competition; Ontario was the major producer of the early 20th century with nickel, copper, and gold. Meanwhile, Australia experienced the Australian gold rushes and by the 1850s was producing 40% of the world's gold, followed by the establishment of large mines such as the Mount Morgan Mine, which ran for nearly a hundred years, Broken Hill ore deposit (one of the largest zinc-lead ore deposits), and iron ore mines at Iron Knob. After declines in production, another boom in mining occurred in the 1960s and in the 21st century Australia remains a major world mineral producer. Into the 21st century, a globalized mining industry of large multinational corporations has arisen. Peak minerals and environmental impacts have also become a concern. Different elements, particularly rare earth minerals, have begun to increase in demand as a result of new technologies...

2013, James D. Toole, Inductee, American Mining Hall of Fame
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.

The Black Warrior Mine Exploration
The Black Warrior Mine produced tungsten and molybdenum starting in 1942 through the 1950s. It's not a large mine, but there might be other underground workings farther up in the mountains. I explored the lowest, main tunnel, though. The timbering at the portal was in good condition, and I spent some time in the video showing how the miners cut and put together the timbers. Timbering has become a lost art form in the mining industry. I also found a couple scattered relics outside the tunnel as well. Underneath one of the relics, I found something very unusual.

Descending the War Eagle Mine's Inclined Shaft and Exploring Its Five Levels
One of the main features of the War Eagle Mine is the 600-foot interior inclined shaft that descends to five lower levels. I first descended this inclined shaft five years ago during my initial visit to the War Eagle Mine and had never descended it again during subsequent visits. However, that all changed recently. One late night not too long ago, I found myself driving across desolate Death Valley under a waning crescent moon and suddenly decided to stop and re-visit this gigantic, sprawling mine. My intent was to ONLY explore the inclined shaft for this video. I spent four hours underground exploring all five levels off of the inclined shaft for this video and found ore carts, huge stopes, classic timbering, and a few relics scattered here and there.

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.

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.

Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Century_of_Progress Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ A Century of Progress International Exposition was a World's Fair registered under the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), which held in Chicago, as The Chicago World's Fair, from 1933 to 1934 to celebrate the city's centennial. The theme of the fair was technological innovation. The fair's motto was "Science Finds, Industry Applies, Man Adapts". Its architectural symbol was the Sky Ride, a transporter bridge perpendicular to the shore on which one could ride from one side of the fair to the other... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1933_Homes_of_Tomorrow_Exhibition The Homes of Tomorrow Exhibition was part of the 1933 Chicago World's Fair. The Fair's theme that year was a Century of Progress, and celebrated man's innovations in architecture, science, technology and transportation. The "Homes of Tomorrow" exhibition was one of the most noteworthy exhibits of the Fair, and showcased man's modern innovations in architecture, design, and building materials. In addition to several unique art deco and contemporary designs for a dozen model homes, futuristic home furnishings and accoutrements such as a personal helicopter pad were anticipated. Several architects and firms used the model homes to demonstrate their techniques for the pre-fabricated home and new materials. Baked enamel and Rostone — a man-made type of masonry that could be molded into specific shapes and produced in various colors — were hailed as affordable and durable home construction options. The following homes were showcased in the exhibit which ran the duration of the fair: - Weiboldt-Rostone House, Walter Schuler, Architect - Good Housekeeping Stran-Steel House and Stran-Steel Garden Home, O'Dell & Wirt C. Rowland, Architects - House of Tomorrow, George Fred Keck, Architect - Masonite House: Frazier & Raftery, Architects - Armco Ferro Enamel Frameless Steel House, Robert Smith, Jr. Architect - House for Brick Manufacturers Association of America: Andrew N.

History During the last half of the 1940s... the U.S. Congress passed legislation creating the Federal Housing Administration and authorizing it to contract with local authorities to construct temporary veterans housing. Under this authorization, the Chicago Housing Authority contracted to lease a parcel of land from the Cook County Forest Preserve District. The area in Norwood Park Township northwest of Chicago, between Montrose Ave. on the north and Berteau Ave. on the south and between Thatcher Ave. on the east and Pueblo Ave. (later renamed Cumberland Ave.) on the west, was designated as one of those temporary housing sites and was named Thatcher Homes. The agency contracted with Stran-Steel, a Division of Great Lakes Steel Corporation, and Kimberly-Clark, maker of recently declassified Kimsul insulation, to erect approximately 184 units patterned after the Nissen Quonset Hut... the plan was later modified to include approximately 57 barracks-like structures with straight walls. While the Quonsets were built over plywood floors on steel joists placed directly on the ground, the barracks were slightly elevated on wooden joists over an 18 – 24” crawl space which aided in heating them during the winter months. Construction began in 1946 and was completed before the end of 1947 when the first families began to move in. The external construction utilized corrugated sheet steel for roofs and siding while the portions which contacted the ground were covered with a 3/16” thick asbestos shingle which measured 2’ x 4’...

The Woodstock Mine: Shooting a Colt SAA Revolver & Exploring Underground
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.

MIKE DMITRICH, DOGM Statewide Oral History Project
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.

Piestewa Hiking Trail | In One Minute
Surrounding the base of 2,608-foot Piestewa Peak, the Phoenix Mountains Park and Recreation Area and Dreamy Draw Recreation Area are gateways into diverse desert landscapes that offer everything from fantastic views to secluded valleys. You don't have to fight crowds on the Piestewa Peak Summit Trail to enjoy the area -- the area boasts dozens of miles of trails to enjoy the glory of the Sonoran Desert in relative solitude. An assortment of picnic area nestled in the hills offer a picturesque spot for a gathering. Highest Point Piestewa Peak, elevation 2,608 feet. Total elevation gain for the summit trail is 1,190 feet. History Long used for mining and grazing, it did not become a city of Phoenix possession until 1959, when the area was annexed and a long-term lease agreement was signed with the state of Arizona. It later became one of the major rallying points for mountain preservation efforts. Geology, flora and fauna While the actual rocks of the Phoenix Mountains (including the areas around Piestewa Peak and North Mountain) are very old, the mountain shapes are, geologically speaking, quite young. They were formed about 14 million years ago as the crust of the earth was gradually stretched from northeast to southwest, elevating mountain ranges and downdropping the basins between them. Much of the area’s rock is a metamorphic type of granite known as schist. Mercury mines were worked in the area of today’s Dreamy Draw Recreation Area. Flora in this area is typical of the lower Sonoran Desert and includes almost all varieties of Arizona cactus such as saguaro, barrel, hedgehog, pincushion, jumping cholla and prickly pear. Trees and colorful shrubbery include palo verde, mesquite, ironwood trees, creosote (dominate), ocotillo, brittle bush, desert lavender and giant sage shrubs. Reptiles and wildlife that thrive in the preserve are gila monster, horned lizard and chuckwalla. Hikers also can encounter rattlesnakes. The mammal population includes coyote, jackrabbit, cottontail rabbit, ground squirrel and kit fox. There are more than 54 species of birds from the turkey vulture to mockingbirds, cactus wrens, Gambel’s quail and several species of owls and hawks.
