#176 Abandoned USA Mines#5 Utah Awesome Headframes and deep shafts!
Locals take us into some of the most awesome mines that we have ever been to on our way south of our tour of America in Eureka Utah!
I have been driving through Eureka for the last 45 years, looking at the mining industry. Thank you for having the balls to go deep in the mines of Eureka! Been watching for a long time decided to comment. Love your exploration of mines.👍
I enjoyed your video I see you explore in my back yard And can’t wait to see your next journey to Eureka Utah

That was Amazing
I grew up not far from there and have been to Eureka many times. It’s a wonderful area to explore. I hope to move back soon. Great video.
Awesome tour of EUREKA! Amazing labyrinth of tunnels ,cool,THANK YOU!
Incredible, Frank….thanks again..!
Just stumbled on your videos, Frank! Talk about badass! I recently went on a a big adventure in Eureka and Silver City to get some footage for my friends fledgling YouTube channel, but we were leery of going inside the mines without helmets or ascension gear. Thank you for sharing this incredible adventure!
I’ve been enjoying your content, can’t watch before bed though -bad dreams-claustrophobic! I had the fortune of exploring the Argentine Mine above Rico Colo (above ground) the processing area was intriguing with the tumblers and separators they where massive …very educational.! Stay safe
Been to Eureka a few times since I live somewhat close. Explored Silver City, it’s pretty fun to look around. I didn’t know the mines were that intense there though, very neat.
anyone know where this mine is located?
Born and raised in Utah not to far from Eureka. I’ve explored a lot of caves here. Have always wanted to do some mines. Very cool!
That fart at 24:30 lol
Hi there, This is a great old mine. Can’t wait to see the rest of it.
How are you today?
Hey, Sir when your back in Utah way
Please contact me.
I have about 10-20 littler mines I can show you in that tints minning Dist.
And you was right we moved all that slag pile from that conk area to
that’s Kennecott copper corporation
When they rebuilt the smelter in the
1995-1999 we moved it over to
The Garfield Smelter.
I would like to really show u some
More mines and mining towns
When you ever get back to UTAH
Invitation is also open to Mr. Gly cool ness, Mr. M and Mr. Randy
Be safe and stay healthy
My Mother was Born in Silver City, her Mom ran a Hotel there back when it was a running town. I have family buried in the cemetery there and family living in Eureka.
Keep your fingers off it,dont touch it!!!
That big horn was standing there thinking "Ha, those hunters will never be looking for me on the road!"
That area where your companions didn’t trust the ladder was really honeycombed! Openings all over the place. You could explore that for days, it looked like. You were showing those youngsters how it’s done, Frank. Good work!
Having other people with you really gives it some perspective. Nice. Some of those rocks looked like it wouldn’t take much to dislodge them. Sketchy stuff!
It went on forever! I think you’d have to camp out in there for a while in order to see it all. Amazing. One of the best yet. What a massive hoist! Thanks, Frank.
Superb mine and explore
That was ACE pit head gear at end was cool
Yes. that was pretty easy. Then fumbles camera for the first time.
13:30 I’m no geologist but this looks like some sort of oceanic cavity sealed off from the rest of the world millions of years ago
Frank: yeah that’s pretty easy 19:00
Frank at 19:02
Me at 19:02 Spilling my cup of tea Lmao, glad you were OK Frank.
"Oh there’s a cool wheelbarrow" – but then doesn’t show it to viewers
If you ever get back to north Idaho I know 15 mines back in the Mt
Hit me up ill show ya
You need to do those paris catacombs in Europe
These videos have encouraged me to explore some of the abandoned mines in my area! just waiting for my safety gear to come in !! I think its time i Sub to the Channel ! Thanks again
Those two young fellas mate.. Thinkin a bit dodgy havin them taggin along Frank??
That oil pan as you called it is actually a differential cover!
24:30 I guess you had those Canadian Barking Spiders follow you all the way down from B.C. because they were sure making some racket. Must have been 3 or 4 of them having a conversation! No wonder those guys didn’t keep up with you back into that mine! 🤣🤣🤣 Eureka, Utah is an awesome little town. I live south of there near St. George but I spent time in that area (Nephi) when I was much younger. Lots of history there, and not just the mining type. Hopefully you’ll be able to go back there one day to explore that mine to it’s fullest. Incredible find for sure. Just be careful of the local lawyers (Liars) I hear they can be some real jerks about going into some of these mines.
wow! cool mine!
Why aren’t all your guests super excited! I’d be like HOLY SHIT A DRILL HOLE all the time 🙂
Man this is one AWESOME mine. Was anxious to see what was up ahead or around the next corner 😮👍❤️
Hello Frank, that machine you called a stamp mill is actually a piston pump, but I see why you thought it was a stamp mill, it looks like one, only stamp mills are very much larger than that pump
I spent many years in Eureka back in the late 70’s-80’s exploring the surface workings around the town. Many of the head frames were still standing back then but much has changed after the EPA did the clean up work. It was all that time spent exploring the old mines that gave me the desire to become a geologist. I have some photos from 70’s of Eagle Bluebell mine which is seen near the end of your video with the electric hoist. There are some really cool mines down there. I have not lived in Utah for 33 years now so I sure do miss visiting Eureka, Mammoth, Silver City, and Diamond. Hope you had a good time! Oh a little note, the Eimco Rocker shoveler/mucking machine was developed at the North Lily Mine in 1938 just east of Eureka. That ended up becoming the Industry standard mucker around the world.
Great video as always dude 😎🖤
Careful down there, Frank. Some of those gaps and tunnels predate the mine. Best to let older things rest undisturbed.
You should explore the church that’s almost across the street from the gas station that my grandpa toms church he owns it and he made a little mine with a working car to go on the wooden tracks he made and a lot of cool things
Damn you like life on the edge. I’m a little crazy but not that crazy. Busses fallen right and left. 😖
10:07 It is a great place for a wedding: It’s exotic, it’s private, and it has minimal to no rats. You and your special someone can say "I love you" in sultry ways in a large, cold, WET echo chamber that was ranked among the lowest for random bones and bodies! Experience the passion at the wedding sparkler mine.
My grandfather operated the cage at the Tintic Standard Mine which is in Dividend, another ghost town right by Eureka. The Tintic Standard shaft is still open. A couple of years ago there was a murder in Eureka and the murderers threw the bodies down the Tintic Standard shaft. They finally got one of the murders to confess and the authorities had to descend the shaft to recover the bodies. It must have been quite a job because the shaft went down a long way.
