McIntyre Mine - Colorado - 2016
The McIntyre mine is located just outside of Ouray, Colorado. There is year round, running water on the claim, that can be used in support of mining operations. This site was historically mined for gold, but plenty of pyrite, quartz, and iron can also be found around the claim and in the tailings and the stream.
Abandoned Colorado Mine Exploration
In this weeks exploration video FREE4ALL explores an Abandoned Mine that is located somewhere in Colorado. *DON'T ASK WHERE!* The last time this mine was used was in 1977. We were able to find many old mine carts and other pieces of equipment the miners once used! It was a very cool location.

Protesting farmers halt production at gold mine
1. Wide shot of march 2. Mid shot of protesters holding banners: "Who is going to feed my family" 3. Various of march 4. Various of bulldozers and heavy machinery at mine STORYLINE Production at Latin America's largest gold mine came to a standstill on Tuesday in a dispute with local farmers over environmental pollution. The farmers have cut off road access to the Carachugo gold mine, which lies 3,940 meters (13,000 feet) above sea level, 560 kilometres (350 miles) north of the capital of Lima, to protest the use of cyanide used to extract the gold from ore. The mining company in charge, Yanacocha, whose majority shareholder is based out of Denver, Colorado, has said it will not participate in government mediated talks until the roadblock is lifted. But the farmers remain defiant - further incensed earlier this month after one of them was shot and killed in a series of clashes with police. The Carachugo project is the latest expansion of Yanacocha's operation and was to have launched at the end of this year. But local residents fear for the depletion and pollution of their water supplies. In 2004, the same company was forced to shelve exploration plans on the nearby Cerro Quilish mountain - which holds an estimated 3.7 (m) million ounces of gold - after similar protests led by farmers who said the project threatened water supplies. The impasse comes less than a week after Garcia's Cabinet chief, Jorge del Castillo, told Congress that mining companies had agreed to contribute some 770 (m) million US dollars to social programs over the next five years. Business and mining industry leaders complained Tuesday that by refusing to send police in to remove the farmers, the weeks' old government of President Alan Garcia had violated that agreement.

Colorado Experience: Ludlow Massacre
One of the most significant events in the struggle for labor laws in America played out in Las Animas County in the spring of 1914. With the control of much of Colorado's coal mines in the hands of just a few companies, miners grew increasingly intolerant of low wages and dangerous working conditions. Despite efforts to suppress union activity, the United Mine Workers of America called a strike in September of 1913. Over the next few months, tensions escalated as the striking miners ransacked several mines. The dispute culminated in a violent clash on April 20, 1914. Despite this tragic outcome, the event sparked national outrage and led the way of workers' rights in America.

Driving Downtown - Denver 4K - Colorado USA
Driving Downtown - Denver Colorado USA - Episode 53. Starting Point: Colfax Avenue https://goo.gl/maps/oDaTW3Z8hiv . Denver is one of the fastest-growing major cities in the United States and is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S. state of Colorado. Denver is just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Denver is nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.3 meters) above sea level, making it the highest major city in the United States.  With an estimated population of 693,060 in 2016, Denver is the 19th-most populous U.S. city, with a 15.48% increase since the 2010 United States Census.  In 2016, Denver was named the best place to live in the United States by U.S. News & World Report. Economy The Denver MSA has a gross metropolitan product of $157.6 billion in 2010, making it the 18th largest metro economy in the United States. Denver's economy is based partially on its geographic position and its connection to some of the country's major transportation systems. Because Denver is the largest city within 500 miles (800 km), it has become a natural location for storage and distribution of goods and services to the Mountain States, Southwest states, as well as all western states. Another benefit for distribution is that Denver is nearly equidistant from large cities of the Midwest, such as Chicago and St. Louis and some large cities of the West Coast, such as Los Angeles and San Francisco. Denver's position near the mineral-rich Rocky Mountains encouraged mining and energy companies to spring up in the area. In the early days of the city, gold and silver booms and busts played a large role in the city's economic success. In the 1970s and early 1980s, the energy crisis in America and resulting high oil prices created an energy boom in Denver captured in the soap opera Dynasty. Denver was built up considerably during this time with the construction of many new downtown skyscrapers. When the price of oil dropped from $34 a barrel in 1981 to $9 a barrel in 1986, the Denver economy also dropped, leaving almost 15,000 oil industry workers in the area unemployed (including former mayor and current governor John Hickenlooper, a former geologist), and the nation's highest office vacancy rate (30%). The industry has recovered and the region has 700 employed petroleum engineers.[86] Advances in hydraulic fracturing have made the DJ Basin of Colorado into an accessible and lucrative oil play. Energy and mining are still important in Denver's economy today, with companies such as EnCana, Halliburton, Smith International, Rio Tinto Group, Newmont Mining, Noble Energy, and Anadarko headquartered or having significant operations. Sports Denver is home to a variety of sports teams and is one of the U.S. cities with teams from four major sports (the Denver metro area is the smallest metropolitan area to have a team in all four major sports). The Denver Broncos of the National Football League have drawn crowds of over 70,000 since their origins in the early 1960s, and continue to draw fans today to their current home Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Broncos have sold out every home game (except for strike-replacement games) since 1970. The Broncos have advanced to eight Super Bowls and won back-to-back titles in 1997 and 1998, and won again in 2015. Culture Because of its proximity to the mountains and generally sunny weather, Denver has gained a reputation as being a very active, outdoor-oriented city. Many Denver residents spend the weekends in the mountains; skiing in the winter and hiking, climbing, kayaking, and camping in the summer. Denver and surrounding cities are home to a large number of local and national breweries. Many of the region's restaurants have on-site breweries, and some larger brewers offer tours, including Coors and New Belgium Brewing Company. The city also welcomes visitors from around the world when it hosts the annual Great American Beer Festival each fall. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denver

IAAPA 2011 Awesome Attractions EXPO and Trade Show - Sandy Creek Mining Company
I came to the IAAPA 2011 Trade Show and Attractions Expo in search of some fun, educational activities for children. I found this sluice gemstone mining activity that is made by the Sandy Creek Mining Company. The kids enjoyed pouring the bags of dirt into the trays and sifting water through them to discover a pile of gems! These guys also gave the kids a bag to put the gems they found in and an educational post card that showed them what they found and a little bit of information about the gems, seashells, arrow heads, and fossils. The water flowing down the sluices was really neat. I had not seen anything like this before. There is not a location close to me where I could take a group of kids, but they said they have an upcoming iPad app that will allow the kids to have the experience off site. I thought this was really cool!

Georgetown, Colorado
Recorded July 12, 2014 My sister and I made a short visit to Georgetown for lunch after finishing our trip to the top of Mount Evans. The historic town of Georgetown is a former silver mining camp along Clear Creek in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The town has a population of just over 1000 people. The town sits at an elevation of 8,530 feet and is nestled in the mountains near the upper end of the valley of Clear Creek in the mountains west of Denver along Interstate 70. Although a small town today, the town was a historic center of the mining industry in Colorado during the late 19th century, earning the nickname the "Silver Queen of Colorado". It has evolved into a lively historical summer tourist center today with many preserved structures from the heyday of the Colorado Silver Boom. From: http://timvp.com

Mine property - terrain animation. GIS data overview for regulatory compliance, to scale. Nick Teti
Nick Teti provided 3D modeling and animation for this mine property visualization that used to scale geo-referenced GIS data, as well satellite images combined to detail specific properties of a mining company. The presentation was used to demonstrate property boundaries, active areas, as well monitoring well locations for regulatory compliance. The data also was used to demonstrate exact locations on the property of mining assets, and areas of operation. The alluvial aquifer was also used to show the groundwater location tributary underneath the terrain. An aquifer is a sandy, soiled body of ground water below the earth's surface. With the detail of the monitoring well locations demonstrated for regulatory compliance other GIS data was used as well to demonstrate the alluvial aquifer in relation to the monitoring wells. Monitoring wells are used for sampling soil, groundwater and other subsurface geo-chemistry most commonly.

St. Elmo Colorado - A True Old West Ghost Town - Abandoned America
See Photos from our St. Elmo Visit Here: http://bit.ly/St-Elmo-CO St. Elmo was first named Forest City but was later changed because of a California town with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was at the time reading the novel "St. Elmo". At its peak in the 1890s, the town boasted a general store, telegraph office, town hall, Over 5 hotels, a handful of saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a schoolhouse. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo (Yes, it's the same South Park you are thinking of). There were 150 mines claimed within St. Elmo. The majority of the folks who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the biggest and most productive mine in the area. While in operation, the Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold. While the other local mines shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the "gold standard" was implemented. Which collapsed the price of silver overnight. As a result. The Railroad was closed and eventually abandoned in 1922. Even after the world gave up on this town and its mines, people continued to harvest ore. This was done by hand and miners would haul individual mining carts down the mountain. Once the mining industry closed completely, St. Elmo drastically declined. Miners searched elsewhere for gold, rather than silver. The business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. The current population is...three. Have more information about St. Elmo? Want to share?

Mining hydraulic roof support (roof support shields) at Redstone, Colorado
Redstone is located in Colordo's Pitkin County about 240 kilometres (150 miles) southwest of Denver. The town was established in the late 19th century by industrialist John Cleveland Osgood as part of a coal mining enterprise. Hydraulic jacks, also called powered roof supports, chocks or shields, are placed in a long line, side by side to support the roof of the coalmine. An individual chock can weigh 30 - 40 tonnes and extend to a maximum cutting height of up to 6 metres.

Gladys visits the Colorado Mine Company's former site
The Colorado Mine Company, in Glendale, Colorado, was a real hot spot back in the day for the who's who in Denver. Elvis Presley visited there one night with a group of Denver Police Officers, and ordered the now famous "Fool's Gold Sandwich", a PBJ that cost him $49.95 (in the 70's). He later flew his personal jet, the Lisa Marie, back to Denver one night just to get a plate of these sandwiches!!
Super Realistic HO Train Operations on Lee Nicholas’ Utah Colorado & Western
We return to the scene of the screwing around to review Lee Nicholas’ Utah Colorado & Western. This time taking a train over the line for Salt Lake to Denver as the dispatcher controls signals and train movement. ****************************************************** Lee uses a CTC Control System to control the main line and follows realistic operating rules including switch lists. The railroad is an amazing layout as well, now 50 year old!! Spangler backdrops, amazing structures and track work. ************************************************* Locomotives are individually radio controlled, only a fixed voltage is on the rails. A unique now system just installed. AND Lee is now installing true scale HO switch stands!! ******************************************************** From the web site: The history of the HO scale UCW, located in my basement, started in 1970. The layout and the basement have endured a number of rebuilds over the years. The layout now occupies an area 30 x 33 feet (roughly the original size of the basement), and the crew lounge, dispatch office and shop area occupy a 14 x 25 foot space excavated after we added on to our house in the late 70's. It would have been easier to excavate before we built onto the house but not nearly as much fun. I highly recommend completing all that before starting the railroad building process. Anyway, the UCW survived and it now occupies the entire downstairs. The last major modifications started in October of 1995, when two of the four peninsulas, Crusero to Cobre, were completely removed and rebuilt. This was a tough decision to make because the prior layout was about 98% complete, and had operated in that state for a number of years. The overall foot print, of the layout, would not change so what were the driving factors in making the changes? A new staging/fiddle yard (MOLE), improved modeling skills, the chance to try out some new construction techniques, increase the layout height, add a helper district, more closely define the operating principals of the UCW, add new lighting and the opportunity to include some of my good friends and operators in the remodeling process were all the factors that were considered. I am fortunate to have some very talented individuals associated with the UCW. Kelly Newton, Jim French, Dave Schen, Jon Robinson, Bob Gilmore, Rob Spangler, Gary Waite and Rod Loder have all donated their time and talents to the project. Thanks also goes out to the rest of the UCW operating crew who have contributed and faithfully support the operation once a month. Kelly for his superb efforts in taking a few hundred pounds of plaster and several yards of cheesecloth and carving away everything that did not resemble rocks. He is also instrumental in providing input into the operational philosophy of the UCW. Rob as spent many hours painting the beautiful backdrops (See Keller Video #27 about the UTAH COLORADO WESTERN) that grace the layout. He and Kelly worked hand in hand while combing the 3-D and 2-D scenery elements. Dave and Bob have applied their talents to planting trees, building crib work, pouring rivers and adding hundreds of detail parts to enhance the scenery. Jim has applied his talents in building some of the kit and scratch built structures and signals, helping with track design and providing input into the operational philosophy behind the UCW. He also spent many hours authoring the UCW Timetable and Operating Rules handbook. Jon spent hundreds of hours designing, programming and building the first CTC computer interface. He spent untold hours and wore out the knees in more than one pair of pants, crawling around under the layout hooking everything up. Although his efforts provided the UCW with a reliable interface for a number of years we decided to install a system I could maintain and program and converted to Bruce Chubb's C/MRI system in 2000. Rod has been the inspiration behind the CTC machine's that have been and are in use on the UCW. He is also responsible for suggesting the current lighting source used on the layout.

New Elk Coal Mine - Weston, Colorado
New Elk Coal Mine first opened in 1951 as a coal provider for a steel plant in Pueblo, CO, and it was active until 1981. Cline Mining Corp. (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) purchased the mine in 2008 for $16.3 million. The workforce peaked at 343 workers in 2011, but production stopped altogether in 2012. Prices for metallurgical coal reached $330 per metric ton in 2011 but fell to $115 per metric ton due to oversupply of metallurgical coal and weak demand for steel. Colorado as a whole saw its lowest coal production in twenty years come 2013. By December 2014, the company had filed for bankruptcy.

Cripple Creek (1), Colorado, United States.
Cripple Creek Colorado 2005. For many years Cripple Creek's high valley, at an elevation of 9,494 feet (2,894 m), was considered no more important than a cattle pasture. Many prospectors avoided the area after the Mount Pisgah hoax, a mini gold rush caused by salting (adding gold to worthless rock). On the 20th of October, 1890, Robert Miller "Bob" Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush began. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history. In three years, the population increased from five hundred to ten thousand by 1893. Although $500 million worth of gold ore was dug from Cripple Creek, Womack died penniless on 10 August 1909. In 1896 Cripple Creek suffered two disastrous fires. The first occurred on April 25 destroying half of the city including much of the business district. Four days later another fire destroyed much of the remaining half. The city was rebuilt in a period of a few months, most historic buildings today date back to 1896. By 1900, Cripple Creek and its sister city, Victor, were substantial mining communities. During the 1890s, many of the miners in the Cripple Creek area joined a miners' union, the Western Federation of Miners (WFM). A significant strike took place in 1894, marking one of the few times in history that a sitting governor called out the national guard to protect miners from anti-union violence by forces under the control of the mine owners. By 1903, the allegiance of the state government had shifted and Governor James Peabody sent the Colorado National Guard into Cripple Creek with the goal of destroying union power in the gold camps.[citation needed] The WFM strike of 1903 and the governor's response precipitated the Colorado Labor Wars, a struggle that took many lives. Through 2005, the Cripple Creek district produced about 23.5 million troy ounces (979 1/6 troy tons; 731 metric tons) of gold. The underground mines are mostly idle, except for a few small operations. There are significant underground deposits remaining which may become feasible to mine in the future. Large scale open pit mining and cyanide heap leach extraction of near-surface ore material, left behind by the old time miners as low grade, has taken place since 1994 east of Cripple Creek, near its sister city of Victor, Colorado. The current mining operation is conducted by Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V). The mine operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mine operations, maintenance, and processing departments work a rotating day/night schedule in 12-hour shifts. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows. Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs https://youtu.be/FanuH0sO_W8 Cripple Creek Colorado 2005.

The site of the Carson & Colorado Railroad Depot at Candelaria, Nevada
The Carson and Colorado Railroad came in 1882 to Candelaria, Nevada, to ship the silver ore from this mining boom town. Candelaria was to be the original terminus of the Carson and Colorado, but it was eventually extended to Keeler, California, near the Owens Lake in the Owens Valley. The railroad station in Candelaria was carved out of the side of a mountain, and the grade was quiet steep there--an outbound grade of 2.33% and an inbound grade of 2.26%. Established in 1876, Candelaria had a population of 1500 and twenty-seven saloons during the peak mining years of 1881-1883. Its most famous mine, the Northern Belle, produced some seven million dollars in silver. By the early 1890s, Candelaria began the decline into its present state of a ghost town. Such decline in the mining business hurt the profits of the Carson and Colorado, which the Southern Pacific bought in 1900. The Southern Pacific continued to maintain the line's operations in the Owens Valley, despite the too frequent unprofitability of this activity.
