Discovery of an old iron mine adit at Maughold, Isle of Man.
 
07:51
We discovered an opening in the ground, just of Dreemskerry road, Maughold. As you can see, we investigated it, to see what it was. We estimated that it's over 100 metre's inside the rock. This would of being dug out for access to mine into all the iron that's in the ground. Unfortunately there's been a slip in the west adit and backfilled on the east adit. Further up the tunnel there's plenty of water which is seeping in from the surrounding ground. We estimated that the adit would be as deep as 200metre's below the road and field. We aproached the end and again a slip of rock and material had blocked our way. Alas we were pretty deflated to find a blockage, but Stevie had an idea to maybe dig it out. Lood, Stevie and myself had a mini-adventure today, but we were hoping for " The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" experience...

A Day in the Life of a Laxey Miner
 
26:28
An exploration of the lifestyle and working conditions of a miner in Victorian Laxey. It was certainly a hard life being a miner in the Isle of Man in the 19th Century. Miners often had to walk miles to work, starting out before daybreak, and then spend eight hours or more underground at depths of up to 600m. The climb down slippery ladders in the dark could take up to an hour, and it's not surprising that there were accidents. On the washing floors above ground, young boys were put to work sorting the ore and breaking the stones, often in freezing conditions. Presenter, Alex Brindley, visits the remains of a miner's cottage on the Manx hills, and recreates the early morning departure from home when the miner would gather his equipment and food for the day. The highlight of the programme is a rare trip underground into some of the actual tunnels and shafts that were worked under Laxey until the 1920s where some of the priginal machinery can strill be seen. This is a fascinating exploration of the human side of an industry that was vital to the Island's economy in the 19th century but which now is all but forgotten. This film was made by Culture Vannin for educational purposes in 2005. Culture Vannin exists to promote and support all aspects of culture in the Isle of Man. We develop innovative, inclusive and exciting projects that promote and support all aspects of Manx culture.

The Great Laxey Wheel - Isle of Man
 
06:21
The Laxey Wheel is the largest working waterwheel in the world. The wheel was used to pump water from the Glen Mooar part of the Great Laxey Mines industrial complex. The Triskelion is visible on the front of the wheel. However it is backwards; this happened by accident when transferring the image on to the wall, they forgot to reverse the image so it is actually a mirror image of the authentic Three Legs of Mann The Laxey Wheel with tourists on it in July, 2008.The 150th anniversary of the Lady Isabella was celebrated by the people of Laxey with a grand Fayre on Saturday 24 September 2004. It is currently maintained by Manx National Heritage as part of the Great Laxey Wheel & Mines Trail. The Wheel features today on the reverse side of the £20 notes issued by the Isle of Man Government

Missing Michigan Copper: Ancient copper mines in U.P. Updated version
 
26:44
Had to make a few amendments A reading from ancient America Donald J. McMahon Symbologist/Researcher on the missing copper from Michigan. was there an ancient prehistoric PreDeluvian worldwide culture existing? People like Columbus were useful fools used as pawns, I never understood how it is Columbus gets the title of the one who discovered America when he didn't even land there, he landed way south It's not like he discovered Virginia or New York. He didn't even land in the US. Mainstream historians, archeology, geology All of the-ology's are in line with the church still. when you put them together it spells theology! Music from Doug Maxwell/Media right productions.video source material from http://ancientamerica.com/missing-pre... and Science frontiers - http://www.science-frontiers.com/cat-... Also music from Les Hayden" Not Really" I can no longer find it NOTE: When I mention the singling out the first "White man" to see Michigan copper, What it should have maybe been was the first Spaniard to see Michigan copper.Would he then represent all Spaniards? I would think not Or European man one can not clump people according to what shade of brown they are.Have you ever seen the experiment a teacher did with her students where each day she would designate a certain eye color that was to be ostracized for the day and right away the kids saw the schism of it all, for example, today all kids except those with blue eyes get to enjoy ice cream while blue-eyed kids must watch the others eat it something like that, I heard a wise person once say if you hate something you will come back in the next life as that what you hated, and I think that is a very good approach to take whether true or not . Just my thoughts on that, to be that way but it just continues Mike Wallace asked The actor Morgan Freeman how should we deal with it and he replied " Just stop talking about" I liked that answer.

Abandoned Mine Explore #3: Brownley Hill ( Enormous Stopes !) Nenthead, England, UK
 
37:49
Our exploration of the abandoned Brownley Hill lead mine. The following information is from mineexplorer.org : Brownley Hill mine was first worked for lead with silver being extracted as well, the earliest workings being via surface shafts on the Brownley Hill Vein. Records dated 1735 from the Greenwich Hospital indicate that the mine was of no real economic value at this time. In the middle of the 1700's the London Lead Company took out a lease for just under 20 years. They worked the Brownley Hill Vein in the Little Limestone and in the hazles above it, obtaining a considerable amount of ore, but they were prevented from mining deeper by water. To overcome the problem they drove the Brownley Hill High Level in the sills above the Great Limestone in an attempt to reach the Little Limestone gaining access to the bottom of old workings, however only a fraction of the expected ore was found. The company also tried the Brownley Hill Moss Cross Vein and Jug Vein, but due to poor ventilation they abandoned their undertakings in this area. In all, they gave up their lease before it was expired as the total current outlay on development brought forth very little in results. At the end of 1765 a new lease was taken out by two man team who obtained a very large amount of ore from the cross Veins as well as the Brownley Hill Vein. The ore raised was sold to the London Lead Company. In 1795 the lease passed to the newly formed Brownley Hill Lead Company. This was a particular lucrative time as the price of lead increased dramatically due to the wars with France. When the price declined again the lease was sold on to another group in 1816, which continued to work the mine under the same name of the Brownley Hill Lead Company. The mine now was being worked for zinc as well lead. It is during this period that the mine started to really develop. The Bloomsberry Horse Level was driven and the previously worked veins were now being worked from below. The horse level extended out on Guddamgill Cross Vein, Wellgill Cross Vein, Brownley Hill North Vein, Brownley Hill Vein eventually reaching the Brownley Hill Moss Cross and Brownley Hill High Cross Veins as well as Jug Vein. The lead ore in the lower levels were much poorer than that obtained in the higher horizons, however the grade of zinc ore was very good and this contributed to the operations profitability. Production was maintained until the middle of the 1850's. In 1869 the mine was operating under a different concern again, the Brownley Hill Lead Mining Company during this period the mine was closed for a while and then reopened again with the same workforce. In 1890 the company sold up the complete mining operation to the Nenthead and Tynedale Lead and Zinc Company who held the lease until 1894. At this time high grade lead ore was depleted and the Vieille Montagne Zinc Company took over the lease in 1914 shifting operations to the extraction of zinc ore. The mine operated until 1936. The last working of the mine was between 1964 and 1966; when the trial Slate Sill level was driven in the Slate Sills southeast of the Brownley Hill Moss Cross Vein.

Henderson Mine
 
02:49
The Henderson Mine is located 50 miles west of Denver, CO. The mine has been in operation since 1976 using a panel caving process and a rail transportation system to mine molydbenum. The rail system was a 42-inch cantenary style railroad. Motive power was supplied by 32 Swedish built ASEA electric locomotives. Each locomotive rode on two axles and weighed 55 tons and was dual voltage 1400 and 600 d.c. volts. The lower voltage was for safety purposes in close clearance portions of the mine. The Henderson Mine also had three small diesels on their roster for non-electrified portions of the line. The rail line moved ore 14 miles from the mine to the mill using 250 20 ton ore cars. The railroad included a 9.8 mile tunnel under the Continental Divide that was longer than either the Cascade or Moffat tunnels. The tunnel was said to be the 10th longest railroad tunnel in the world. After 23 years of operation the railroad ceased operation on July 30, 1999. This unique railroad was replaced by a conveyor belt system and an historic piece of Colorado mining history became a memory.

History of Cornish Mining - Cligga Mine Revisited - Poldark Times
 
29:55
Cornish Tin Mine and Mining History - Cligga Mine Revisited - Cligga Head, Perranporth Cornwall. 3 ghostly images are in the footage from Nosferatu (copyright expired). Revisit of Cligga Tin Mine with much improved lighting, filmed on my GoPro3, 3 hour trip condensed into 30 minutes no software enhancement required. Cree t6 and XML-U2 lamps provide incredible lighting. Bob and myself both have extensive knowledge of mines and mining techniques through working in the industry, old workings are extremely dangerous and must only be entered with a full understanding of how they work, many transfer chutes, winzes, shafts and open stopes make it a hazardous environment. History of Cligga Mine. Cligga Wolfram & Tin Mine lies on the cliff tops about one and a quarter miles southwest of Perranporth on the North Cornish coast. The granite pegmatite cliffs have been altered to greisen and exhibit jointing and veining. The veins often filled with cassiterite (tin oxide), wolframite, mispickel (arsenical pyrite) and the copper/iron suphides, chalcopyrite and bornite. Silver ore has also been reported here. There is one shaft on the sett called Contact Shaft and two adits, one at beach level called Beach Adit, the other atop the cliffs and unsurprisingly called Cliff Adit. The mine worked in the early part of the twentieth century although 'Old Men's Workings' from the past are quite visible as you approach the area. Mining restarted in 1938 after a period of closure prior to the mine being taken over by the 'Rhodesian Mines Trust Limited in 1939'. Trials were carried out around this time to see if it was more feasible to work the stockwork as an open cast pit rather than an underground mine, but this came to nothing. There is surprisingly little information on Cligga although there are production records showing that between 1940 and 1944, 300 tons of wolfram and 200 tons of black tin were raised and sold. 1945 Cligga Mine closed. The War was nearly over and shipments of American tungsten were now arriving regularly in England. The high cost of producing a small quantity of tungsten from Cligga could no longer by justified and therefore, production at Cligga was halted. In 1962 the 'Geevor Mining Company took out a lease on the mine and in collaboration with the Sungesi Besi, Tronoh and Panang Companies started a programme of shaft rehabilitation and deepening with a view to re-opening the mine. Contact shaft was deepened to 550 feet from surface, drives 'on lode' were started both seawards and inland. However water was hit at about 250 feet from the shaft and work there abandoned. The seaward drive continued for some 800 feet before further exploration by diamond drilling commenced. The results were inconclusive, and by early 1964 Geevor had decided to unwater 'Levant' mine instead of re-opening Cligga. 1976 there was renewed interest in mining for tin on a small scale at Cligga, and Wheal Concord undertook a limited programme of evaluation. Wheal Concord Ltd planned to re-open contact shaft in 1984-1985, but the collapse of the tin-market in October 1985 put a stop to this. Cornish tin mines are dangerous only people with knowledge of working mines should enter but then only with extreme caution. History of Cornish Tin Mines collection All music composed with vst plugins and keyboard with mixer, even then had to re up due to a copyright issue and it was my very own work - crazy. 39 views until then. Cligga Mine modern history. 1938 September 21st the "Cligga Wolfram and Tin Mines Ltd" was founded and soon after completion of the installation the rich ore veins were exploited. 1939 The Rhodesian Mines Trust Ltd. took over the company Contact shaft was extended until it reached close to sea level and new stopes were drilled to fully exploit the ore body. 1940, vibration from blasting caused the first of several collapses of the area of cliffs housing the process water pumps (at the northern end of the beach). Eventually, a tunnel was driven to the northwest and a new pump chamber established just above sea level, well away from the effects of blasting. 1941 with the new pump system functional, it was possible to increase production. However, although production had increased, the cost of production had also increased. 1945 Cligga Mine closed. The War was nearly over and shipments of American tungsten were now arriving regularly in England. The high cost of producing a small quantity of tungsten from Cligga could no longer by justified and therefore, production at Cligga was halted.

8 Worst Man-Made Environmental Disasters in History
 
11:56
Worst man-made environmental disasters in history. These world tragedies & insane nature disasters caused severe damage! Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] 8 Deepwater Horizon Offshore drilling contractor Transocean owned the rig & had leased it to oil giant British Petroleum or BP. Two days after, the platform sank & caused a petroleum leak that continued for almost three months. US government reported that approximately 4.2 million barrels of oil had been released. Aside from impacting 43,300 miles of ocean, the spill affected 1,300 miles of coastline from Florida to Texas. 7 Kuwait Fires The sun was darkened by the oily smoke plumes that shot high into the sky. People who ventured outside experienced breathing difficulties & one US environmentalist compared the effect to that of standing behind the exhaust pipes of hundreds of malfunctioning diesel trucks’. The fires burned for approximately seven months. Black rain, a mixture of smoke particles & natural precipitation fell as far as the Himalayas & the landscape became covered with hundreds of oil lakes, of up to four inches in depth. Birds confused the lakes for water. Smoke, ash & soot covered the Gulf. Livestock & the oily mist blackened the lungs of the animals. 6 Reactor Shutdown The reactor shutdown that took place on the 26th of April, 1986, is considered to be one of the worst in history. Many cases were subsequently connected to the massive spread of radioactive material. Wide areas of Belarus, Ukraine & the Russian Federation, inhabited by millions of people, were affected. It went as far as the British Isles. It’s estimated that at least 5% of the reactor core was released into the atmosphere & downwind as result of the blast. 5 Minamata Disease In the early 1950s the people inhabiting the small coastal city of Minamata in the south of Japan, began to notice animal behavior that was startling & out of the ordinary. Fish would inexplicably go belly up, birds crashed into the ground & cats would foam at the mouth & jump into the sea. It was not long that humans too began to exhibit unusual behavior that would later be referred to as the Minamata Disease. People would be stumbling about, slurring their words & encountering difficulties with the simplest day-to-day tasks. In 1958, the root of the strange behavior was finally discovered. As part of its manufacturing process, one of Minamata’s biggest employers, the Chisso Corporation chemical company had been dumping mercury into the sea. 4 Baia Mare Cyanide Spill The Baia Mare cyanide spill took place in Romania in the year 2000. A gold mining company called Aurul, a jointventure of the Romanian government & an Australian company called Esmeralda Exploration had been shipping its waste material to a dam near Bozinta Mare, Maramures County. The company had been extracting the remaining gold from the tailings through a process called gold cyanidation with the resulting waste then being taken to the dam. On the 30th of January, 2000, the dam burst sending 3,500,000 feet of cyanide-contaminated water into the Somes River & some of the surrounding farmland. 3 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill 260,000 to 750,000 barrels of crude oil were spilled in Prince William Sound, Alaska, on the 24th of March, 1989. It happened because of the Exxon Valdez oil tanker. The oil ultimately covered 1,300 miles of coastline & 11,000 square miles of ocean. A number of factors were cited as having contributed to the tanker’s crash. These included an insufficient & fatigued crew, possible problems with the ship’s Raytheon Collision Avoidance System radar or the lack of advanced monitoring equipment. Public blame also fell on the ship’s captain, Joseph Hazelwood, who was not present at the controls at the time as he was still sleeping after reportedly having drunk heavily the previous night. 2 Union Carbide Gas Leak On the 2nd of December 1984, 30 tons of a highly toxic gas called methyl isocyanate & a number of other gases were released following an accident at the Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal, India. The low-lingering gases caused the eyes & throats to burn & induced nausea. Thousands of people were treated in the immediate aftermath for various ailments including blindness & liver & kidney failure. The Great Smog Also known as the ‘Big Smoke’, the Great Smog took place on the European continent. For five days in December 1952, the city of London was brought to a standstill by heavy fog combined with sulfurous fumes from power plants, coal fires & vehicle exhaust. The dense smoke blocked out the sun as it began to enshroud several of the city’s landmarks, such as Big Ben, London Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral & others. At first, Londoners tried to ignore the foul air as best they could, but within an hour it could no longer be overlooked.

Lucky Discoveries That Made People Rich
 
10:48
From the largest opal in the world, to rare viking treasure hoards, here are lucky discoveries that made people rich! Subscribe to American EYE! 5. Lost Pollack Painting Sometimes you might knowingly have something in your house that you just don’t know is worth a lot of money This was the case for a man living in Scottsdale Arizona who had a college of modern art painting that he just found to be intriguing. He called over some experts to take a look at one of his signed laker posters which was only worth about 300 bucks but the experts noticed something else in the garage that caught their eye! They noticed the series of smears consistent with a modern artist consistent with Jackson Pollock. This American painter is considered a major figure in abstract expressionism and his paintings are worth big bucks! The painting heavily damaged but even then, still worth some serious cash. The had it authenticated by an another expert who closely examined the painting and claimed it was indeed authentic and could sell for anything from 10 million to 15 million dollars! 4. Boulder Matrix Opal It seems like digging around in Australia could certainly pay off. The world’s largest opal matrix was discovered in Queensland Australia in 2011 and this amazing stone has 55,000 carats! That’s about 25 points of pure opal! The previous largest opal ever discovered only was 6,100 carats. This mammoth find took place in the dry outback which receives very little rainfall. It measured in at about 10 inches in length and is valued at 1 million dollars! 3. Jersey Iron Age Coins A great deal of coins were found on the Island of Jersey in 2012 and it may shock you This island in the English Channel that contains a great deal of French and English culture but also contained a massive treasure. After searching for this treasure for 30 years, two amateur treasure hunters found these coins that date back to Iron Age. But no, these weren’t made of iron but silver and was the largest haul of celtic coins to have ever been found. Each coin you see in this person’s hand was found on the island of Jersey is worth at least 200 pounds each, and you can tell they’re still in great condition. This makes the total discovery worth 10 million pounds or 12 million US dollars. They were found under 3 feet of soil under a hedge in someone’s farm. The coins were packed in a clay chest and literally weighed a ton! It’s believed that it was stashed here to keep the Romans from plundering it during their conquest of the British Isles. 2. Sutter’s Mill Gold Discovery Now for a little bit of history. Sometimes when you discover something, you might make other people rich but not necessarily yourself and this was the case for John Sutter. This guy had some bad luck. James Marshall who worked at Sutter’s Mill discovered a massive golden nugget and told his boss John Sutter about it. The two decided to keep it a secret for a while but hired some men to help them pan out the gold. We’ll it turns out that all the miners they hired were a bunch of no good thieves and they stole basically all the gold they came across. The miners basically told everyone that there was gold in them there hills and this is what brought millions of people seeking fast riches! Fortune seekers from all over the world like from China, Germany, Mexico, Ireland Turkey and of course the easter united states, moved to California during this period After all his employees cheated him and took off with gold found on his land, the gold ran out and he was left basically penniless. He decided to give up on the california dream and moved as far away as possible. California officially became a state in 1850, partially thanks to there being gold here. If this moment in history never happened, the western united states would most likely be much less developed and less rich. Now you know why california is called the “Golden State”.1. The Whydah Discovery The Whydah was a British slave ship that was originally captured by “Black Sam” and was found off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts in 1984 by Barry Clifford. He actually credits a pirate treasure map that many discredited as being false. It seems to be the holy grail of pirate discoveries! Priceless artifacts were discovered including 200,000 individual pieces were received under only 14 feet of water. Rare gold and silver coins, gold jewelry and artifacts, cannons, sword handles and even a boy’s leg! The boat is believed to carry the plunder of 10 ships. Spanish Galleons were relentless looted by Black Sam until him and his crew were swept away by a strong storm in 1717. Divers pulled together huge clumps of gold coin masses that stuck together from years of being underwater. A museum exhibition called “Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah, from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship”, toured the United States.

The Most HAUNTED Islands on Earth
 
10:28
On our planet, there are roughly 2,000 islands—many of which are occupied and many of which are not. Some islands sit abandoned and lost to time; others are yet to be discovered. There are islands which are populated by living, breathing humans and spirits who coexist, and there are those that have been abandoned and remain the property of spirits alone. Here, we’ll show you some of the creepiest places in the world; these are The Most HAUNTED Islands on Earth. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr Watch our "Evidence That Aliens HAVE Visited Earth " video here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL227eb9FSI Watch our "CRAZY Ideas That Actually Worked!" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0n2wEAiOcg Watch our UNBELIEVABLE Items Found After Tsunamis !" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNNLwdBI7Gk 5. Ellis Island This little island was the gateway to America for many an immigrant from 1892 through 1964, and more than 12 million people passed through it. It’s also sometimes referred to as “Island of Tears” or “Isle of Tears,” considering it was the make or break checkpoint for those wishing to start over in the country. Thousands were turned away due to various reasons, and sometimes families were separated or sent back altogether. More than 3,500 people lost their lives on the island as well, most of which perished in quarantine. There were also many instances of people taking their own lives after being denied entry to America, and many will testify to hearing and seeing many strange things there. Doors are slammed, invisible children laugh and cry, nonexistent candles burn, and voices of many are heard, making this a truly scary landmark that played an important role in history. 4. Mackinac Island This next island can be found near the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac in Lake Huron, and what once was a battlefield and Indian burial area, is now a vacation spot. It was home to the Indigenous Odawa, a tribe of Native Americans, but they fell victim to annihilation by the Seneca people one winter long ago, and only two local natives escaped by hiding. It was also important to the fur trade and the sight of two brutal battles during the War of 1812. There were also accusations of witchcraft happening on the island, and seven women were accused. The test to see if they were innocent? Tie rocks to their feet and throw them into a lagoon; if they floated, they would be deemed witches, if they sank, they were innocent. All seven sank and lost their lives. There’s more than enough blood and sadness on the island just to assume it’s haunted, and many places on it are thought to be so. 3. Isla de Las Munecas There are those who like dolls, and there are those who are terrified of them. The Isla de Las Munecas is a place that could turn any of the former into the latter. Its name translates to “Island of the Dolls,” and it can be found in Xochimilco (Zochimilko), a mayoralty in Mexico City. The island was once owned by Don Julian Santana Barrera, a man who kept to himself, and it’s said he found a girl drowned in a canal on the island. He found a doll floating nearby and hung it on a tree where the girl was found as a sign of respect. Legend has it that he began hearing whispers, wails, and footsteps in the woods around his hut. In an attempt to appease the spirit of the girl, he spent the next half-century hanging dolls all over the island. It’s also rumored that Barrera was later found drowned in the same spot he saw the girl, and the Isla de Las Munecas has become a popular ghost hunting, television filming, and tourist exploring attraction. 2. Hashima Island This super haunted island is also called Gunkanjima or the “Battleship Island.” That’s because it looks like a terrifying, sunken, monstrous wreck of a battleship. It’s abandoned and sits roughly 15 miles from the famous city of Nagasaki in Japan and is just one of 505 islands in the Nagasaki Prefecture that is uninhabited. It became known for its undersea coal mining operations, operations which ceased in 1974 when the coal reserves became depleted, and then everyone left. While it was still in service, thousands of Koreans were forced into labor in the mines, and at one point it was the most densely populated place in the world. There were almost 6,000 people on an island which measured only 15 acres! It is now a ghost town to the living, but it’s said that past inhabitants still remain, we just can’t see them. 1...

"WESTRAY"
 
01:19:54
Complete film. Directed by Paul Cowan. 2001. Stereo. IMDB rating: 7.0! 80 mins. Nova Scotia, May 9, 1992, 5:18 am, Westray Mine explodes, killing 26 men. And THAT is just the beginning of THIS film. It gets stranger and stranger as the cover-up piles up. I do NOT own the copyright to this film, but it is THAT important of a film that I want everyone to see it. With "Paris Is Burning," these 2 films make up my favorite documentaries. I'm not making money on it, either. It is available to buy nowhere. It flows like a fictional film, although it is a documentary. Why do important films, like this one, not get to DVD and Blu-Ray?

Abandoned  Hydro Electric Plant in South Dakota - Road Trip Vlog 5
 
03:09
100 year old abandoned Gold Mine Hydro Electric Plant on the Spearfish Canyon, South Dakota scenic byway that was once owned by George Hearst, father of William Randolph Hearst. See it at: https://youtu.be/oTulWJJAzPs On our way to Roughlock Falls, we saw a pretty intriguing sight – A Hydro Electric Plant that was built in 1917. This year is the 100th Anniversary of the building so we couldn’t resist stopping the car to explore it. We did not enter the building or the property because of the “No Trespassing” signs and a big fence around the it. Researching on the internet, we were able to find out about the history of the plant. In 1877, a group of investors including George Hearst (father of William Randolph Hearst) bought the Homestake Mine from the men who discovered it for $70,000. The investors incorporated the mine company and began selling shares on the New York Stock Exchange in 1879. It would become the first and longest – listed mining stock in the history of the exchange. The Homestake Mining Company Hydro Electric Plant No. 2 was constructed in 1917 to supplement the power of Plant No. 1 which was built in 1910. They both contained turbines that provided power for the Homestake Mining Company’s gold mining operation in Lead, South Dakota. The pipes that diverted the water to the plant were made of redwood and later lined with concrete.

Guitar: Cousin Jack (Including lyrics and chords)
 
04:46
At a concert last Sunday, a young man, new to our group, sang this song. "Cousin Jack" is a song performed by the 'roots and folk' duo "Show of Hands". The song was written by Steve Knightley who with Phil Beer are the members of the duo. The song is about the demise of the mining industry in the county of Cornwall. My own maternal great-grandparents moved to the Isle of Man from Cornwall to work at the mines in Foxdale, so I feel an affinity to anything Cornish and therefore felt I had to do my own version of this moving song.

Isle of Man by Drone - Bradda Head and Milners Tower above Port Erin
 
05:25
Isle of Man by Drone - Bradda Head and Milners Tower above Port Erin- Using a DJI Phantom 3 quadrocopter for landscape aerial photography. Bradda Head is a rugged headland in the south-west of the Isle of Man, in the British Isles, rising to a height of 382 feet (116 m). It shelters Port Erin Bay from the north. There is a clifftop walk, the Coronation Footpath, up to the head and around the head via Milner's Tower. This was built in 1871 as a view tower in memory of William Milner of the then-famous Milner's Safe Co. Ltd., maker of fire-resistant safes and a local philanthropist. His tower is built in the shape of a key and lock. The Mourne Mountains of Northern Ireland can sometimes be seen from the summit. History[edit] Copper was quarried here in the Bronze Age. There is an ancient cairn on nearby Bradda Hill. An ancient coin hoard was found at Bradda Head in 1848. Prior to the Second World War, there was a thriving fishing trade in scallops taken off Bradda Head. There are disused mine workings on the headland, local documents show that mining took place from at least the 1650s until closure in 1874, by which time the shafts had been sunk far below sea-level. quadrocopter

Located on the island of Lanzarote, Salinas de Janubio was constructed in 1895 to produce salt for consumption and to meet demands of the region's once robust fishing industry, which utilized the high quality, natural salts for fish preservation. Today, artisanal salt production on the Canary Islands is in decline, but workers at Janubio continue to use traditional methods to extract salt from the sea, and hope to maintain the salt flats for future generations.

Trenching in Granite without explosives
 
15:05
My friends at Montdami Construction were laying the underground services as part of a new housing estate project when some hard granite was encountered, they had a shot at hammering it with a big hydraulic breaker on a 36 Tonne machine but the progress was not substantial and the breaker point was worn down quickly. Normally we would just blast the rock with high explosives and the show goes on, no big deal. Not this time... Parallel to the trench we were working in, is another underground service - a very large gas transmission main that supplies an entire large city... and the caretakers of the gas pipeline were not entertained by the concept of blasting near by. I quickly decided that Expando Chemical Cracking Agent was next best option to move this project forward.

It is the 12th deepest cave in the United States and features the deepest, unobstructed underground pitch in the continental US named Fantastic Pit. 9. Ice Cave, Russia - 0:43 This incredible cave near the Mutnovsky Volcano in Russia is the result of volcanic fed hot springs running through ice to create an ice cave that has a very shallow roof allowing sunlight to pass through. This cave was discovered by accident in 2012 and is nearly 980 ft. long. 8. Cave of the Swallows, Mexico - 1:12 The Cave of the Swallows is an open air pit cave in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. The mouth of the cave is 160 by 203 feet wide further widening to a room approximately 994 by 442 ft wide.[2] The floor of the cave is a 1214 ft free fall drop from the top making it the largest known cave shaft in the world, the second deepest pit in Mexico and perhaps the 11th deepest in the world. 7. Waitomo Glowworm Cave, New Zealand - 1:45 The Waitomo Glowworm Caves on the North Island of New Zealand is known for it’s spectacular glowworms.

Phraya Nakhon Cave, Thailand - 2:15 Phraya Nakhon Cave in Thailand is located 4 hours south of Bangkok. It’s a fairly accessible cave to the public as it is only a 30 minute sweaty hike to reach the cave. King Chulalongkorn built the Kuha Karuhas pavilion inside the cave in 1890, when he fell in love with the beauty of the cave during his visit. If you want there is a Boat that will drop you off in some murky water at the entrance of the cave for 300 Baht but is only operational in good weather conditions. 5. Antelope Canyon, USA - 2:45 Antelope Canyon is primarily a water eroded rock canyon located near the city of Page, in the northern part of the state of Arizona Antelope Canyon is a known for its smooth, wavy walls of sandstone, caused mainly by flash flooding and rain 4.

Legend has it, that in the 13th century the massive cave was originally used as a place of hiding for locals who wanted to hide from the Mongols. 3. Fingal’s Cave, Scotland - 3:43 Fingal’s Cave, located in on an uninhabited island called Staffa, is 72 feet tall and 270 feet deep. This sea cave a one of a kind with visually astonishing hexagonal columns made of basalt.

Son Doong Cave, Vietnam - 4:33 Son Doong Cave in Vietnam is the largest cave discovered on earth. It was discovered in 1991 by a local man but not fully explored until 2009. Son Doong Cave has a max depth of 490 feet and max length of 30,000 feet. It was created by a large vertical fault in the limestone that was flooded by river water which carved it’s way deep under the surface for millions of years. Having limestone walls that run in a nearly in a straight line allows for much greater stability, which is what has allowed this cave to get so big. 1. Naica Mine, Mexico - 5:23 This incredible cave was accidentally found by the Naica mining company as they were drilling deep for silver, lead and zinc. They noticed a large crystal which appeared to be made of ice but considering the temperature inside the cave is 136 Fahrenheit or 58 degrees Celsius they knew immediately it was a large rare crystal growth.
