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.

Late last summer, we headed out to Colorado and hiked up some mountains to this small abandoned mining prospect. Topographic maps showed several adits in the area and some shafts. We found and entered some underground workings but didn't find anything too substantial. One unique thing we found at this site were some old mining safety signs posted at one of the mine's entrances.
The Seniorita Mine is about 4 miles north of Ouray, Colorado. The claim has a large track coming from what appears to have once been a haulage tunnel. Piping and track indicate a large adit was once on site. The mine has not been worked in a long time, and there is little historical information available, but it is known to have been worked for gold as early as 1893 with various owners since.

There are also shots of skiing at Aspen and of Larimer Square, Tivoli Brewery, and the capitol building in Denver. The film is 757 feet in length, with a run-time of ...
Come with as we go 1,200ft underground in the Donaldson mine. where we get a chance to step back in time and explore the massive workings left behind.
I was out again with my drone, this time near the upper elevation town of Victor, Colorado. With a rich mining past, Victor has many remains from building used in the mining for gold. I know that I am missing the Independence Mine. But on the day I filmed this, they were conducting blasting near there. They had a sign out prohibiting use of two-way radios so their explosives wouldn't be accidentally set off. So no Mavic remote. But anyway, I hope you enjoy this.

The No Mans Claim is one of those rare claims that has indisputable gold values, but somehow has managed to stay off the radar. There is no record in the USGS or Bureau of Mines that mentions this mine with the exception of a small note from a 1915 survey of the district that reads, "There are many other small mines the district where gold is being reported that show no pegmatite deposits."

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.
Just one of our amazing adventures last summer in Ouray, Colorado. We hiked the Upper Cascade Trail to explore the abandoned Chief Ouray Mine and its scary tunnels. First song: Like Us - Mo Vibez Second Song: Ominous Wind-15716 - Peder B. Helland
