The Ivanhoe Mine!
 
28:34
Tough day following a tram line up to a mine high in the mountains above Sandon called the Ivanhoe.The Ivanhoe occurrence is situated on Crown grant Lot 743 at 2058 metres elevation above sea level, between Sandon and Selkirk peaks, in the Slocan Mining Division. The underground workings cover most of the eastern portion of Lot 743 and extend east on to the Elgin Crown grant (Lot 742). This property was owned in 1952 by the Minnesota Silver Company, Limited, who have owned the claim since 1894. The property was located about 1893 and was worked fairly steadily up to 1905, after which it lay idle until 1913 when operations were resumed and continued until 1921. Since that time little if any work has been done within the property limits. In 1900 a 100-ton mill was erected at Sandon. This was connected to the mine workings by an aerial tramway 2590 metres long. The mill was burned in 1915, and subsequently rebuilt by the Rosebery-Surprise Mining Company who acquired an option on the Ivanhoe property in 1919. This option was allowed to lapse the following year and in 1921 Silversmith Mines, Limited, took over the mill and remodelled it. The mine was developed by 8 levels over a vertical range of about 183 metres. Nos. 1, 2, 4 and 8 levels are adits. Ore was stoped from No. 6 to 12.1 metres above No. 1 level, a vertical distance of 99 metres, but most of the stoping was done between levels Nos. 2 and 4. No. 2 level, driven on parts of a large and complex lode was partly accessible in 1948. No. 8 adit reaches the Ivanhoe lode at 399 metres and No. 4 adit reaches it at about 152 metres from the portal. The longest levels are Nos. 4 and 8. The former extends 224 metres east and 780 metres west and southwest of the crosscut, including in the latter direction an extension of 335 metres into the adjoining property of the Canadian group (082FNW197). No. 8 level drifts about 152 metres west of the crosscut and 286 metres east and also passes into Canadian ground for 247 metres. These levels are only partially accessible and the other levels are short and for the most part inaccessible. Regionally, the area lies on the western margin of the Kootenay Arc, in allochthonous rocks of the Quesnel Terrane. In the vicinity of the occurrence, the Quesnel Terrane is dominated by the Upper Triassic Slocan Group, a thick sequence of deformed and metamorphosed shale, argillite, siltstone, quartzite and minor limestone. Rocks of the Slocan Group are tightly and disharmonically folded. Early minor folds are tight to isoclinal with moderate east plunging, southeast inclined axial planes and younger folds are open, southwest plunging with subhorizontal axial planes. The sedimentary sequence has been regionally metamorphosed to lower greenschist facies. South of the occurrence, the Slocan Group has been intruded by the Middle Jurassic Nelson intrusions which comprise at least six texturally and compositionally distinct phases ranging from diorite to lamprophyre. The most dominant phase is a medium to coarse grained potassium feldspar porphyritic granite. Several feldspar porphyritic granodiorite dikes, apparently related to the Nelson intrusions, also cut the sedimentary sequence near the occurrence (Paper 1989-5). The Ivanhoe occurrence is hosted by limestone, argillite and quartzite of the Slocan Group that are intruded by quartz feldspar porphyries. The rocks are folded in a synclinal structure with the limbs striking north-northwest and dipping moderately southwest and northeast. The occurrence consists of a broad and irregular zone of faulting and shearing over 7 metres in width containing brecciated wallrock cemented by quartz and siderite with local lenses and veins of sulphides up to 1.5 metres thick. The walls of the fissure vein are marked by consistent gouge. The shear zone strikes east-west for most of the property but swings sharply southwest as it approaches the Canadian property (082FNW197). Veins within the shear zone dip 52 degrees south. On the Ivanhoe and Elgin Crown grants the vein system has been developed on at least eight underground levels and over a vertical range of about 180 metres. Above the No. 3 level of the mine the stopes were continuous for about 180 metres. Within the productive section of the veins the ore consisted of argentiferous galena and sphalerite in a matrix of siderite and quartz. Much of the ore was concentrated in semimassive lenses up to 1.5 metres wide between the second and fourth levels. Production from the Ivanhoe between 1895 and 1935 yielded about 14 tonnes of silver, 2366 tonnes of lead, 330 tonnes of zinc and 31 grams of gold from 40,293 tonnes mined.

The Stormy
 
03:35
Southern Pacific's Lordsburg District Experience long freight trains, semaphore signals, rugged mountain passes and a proliferation of spring wildflowers along Southern Pacific's mainline in Southeastern Arizona. This stretch of track is hailed as one of the most scenic parts of SP's famous Sunset Route between the cities of Tucson, Arizona and Lordsburg, New Mexico. This exciting production was taped while Southern Pacific was in the middle of a major track expansion program. You'll see the line under different phases of construction as fifty miles of new track, several bridges and new signals were being added. Once the construction was done the semaphore signals came down, but we captured these historic artifacts while they were still in use. Big time mainline railroading takes place here and you'll see hot trains and lowly drag freights working hard across four mountain passes. Amtrak's Sunset Limited is observed, as well as many colorful locomotives on lease from other railroads. Steep grades, old coaling towers, a major construction project and the last days of the semaphore signals combine to make The Stormy an exciting program that you're sure to enjoy.

UFO's and Secret Tech...
 
01:40:28
Research everything and you will see some truth or info that needs a closer look. l am just researching for myself. This documentary looks at suppressed technology and the early “flying saucer” technology of Nazi Germany and the genesis of man-made UFOs. While the Government wants you to think that aliens are crashing their ships and buzzing over military bases, this video presents the evidence that most “nuts and bolts” UFOs are made right here on Earth and piloted by earthlings. This important book takes us from the work of captured German scientists. A new, revised edition of this classic book on suppressed technology and the early “flying saucer” technology of Germany and the genesis of man-made UFOs. This important show takes us from the work of a captured German to black budget projects in America. This documentary blows the lid off the “Government UFO Conspiracy” and explains with detailed diagrams the technology involved. In Ufology and conspiracy theory claims or stories have circulated linking UFOs to Nazi Germany. The German UFO theories describe supposedly successful attempts to develop advanced aircraft or spacecraft post war, this tech was first tested in 1903, and the first UFO sighting was in 1904 and during World War II, and further assert the post-war survival of these craft in secret bases like Antarctica which was closed due to high maintenance, other bases are in United States, south America, then they moved up the cost to Coronado along with their creators. Other base locations around the world are very top secret and still unknown by many.

Enjoy!!! (Video has been restricted) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97A6-cvABxg The Germans were not defeated in WWII, the peace treaty signed by Germany at the end of WWII was signed by some insignificant German officers who had very little understanding of what the German jews and soviets took with them at the end of WWII. We know Britain got a lot of the secret programs/technology, and Americans grabbed the scientists with Wernher von Braun who headed the American Apollo Program, the USSR took the technicians from Peenemunde, the Nazis kept “the Bell” and the science behind it, and almost one $1 billion got lost in Argentina. Brazil and Chile arranged reinvestment of the money back into Germany, Europe, and some other countries around the world. Good reads are Dr. Joseph P.

British Columbia
 
01:16:08
British Columbia i/ˌbrɪtɪʃ kəˈlʌmbiə/, also commonly referred to by its initials BC or B.C., is a province located on the West Coast of Canada. British Columbia is also a component of the Pacific Northwest, along with the U.S. states of Oregon and Washington. The province's name was chosen by Queen Victoria in 1858, reflecting its origins as the British remainder of the Columbia District of the Hudson's Bay Company. In 1871, it became the sixth province of Canada. Its Latin motto is Splendor sine occasu . This video targeted to blind users.

Though no official boundary exists, the most common conception includes the Canadian province of British Columbia and the U.S. states of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Broader conceptions reach north into Southeast Alaska and Yukon, south into northern California, and east of the Continental Divide to include Western Montana and parts of Wyoming. Narrower conceptions may be limited to the northwestern US, or to the coastal areas west of the Cascade and Coast mountains. The variety of definitions can be attributed to partially overlapping commonalities of the region's history, culture, geography, society, and other factors. The Northwest Coast is the coastal region of the Pacific Northwest, and the Northwest Plateau (also commonly known as "the Interior" in British Columbia and the Inland Empire in the United States) is the inland region. The term "Pacific Northwest" should not be confused with the Northwest Territory (also known as the Great Northwest, a historical term in the United States) or the Northwest Territories of Canada. The region's largest metropolitan areas are Greater Seattle, Washington, with 3.8 million people; Greater Vancouver, British Columbia, with 2.5 million people; and Greater Portland, Oregon, with 2.4 million people.A key aspect of the Pacific Northwest is the US–Canada international border, which the United States and the United Kingdom established at a time when the region's inhabitants were composed mostly of indigenous peoples. The border—in two sections, along the 49th parallel south of British Columbia and the Alaska Panhandle west of northern British Columbia—has had a powerful effect on the region. According to Canadian historian Ken Coates, the border has not merely influenced the Pacific Northwest—rather, "the region's history and character have been determined by the boundary".
