Dangerous McCormick Uranium Mine
Dangerous McCormick Uranium Mine
Recently I went out to Utah looking for some uranium mines. One that I was interested in finding was the McCormick mine. I wasn’t able to find any info on mining data sites but I remember seeing a picture of it and it seems very interesting with its steel bracing. In this video I find what I was looking for and I wasn’t disappointed.

ГУЛАГ тоже у вас был…
Cool, the rocks glow!
Its odd that both Australia and the U.S.A pull Uranium out of similar looking terrain ( iron rich red rock ) the green glow ! is that the same glow they used to cover aircraft instruments back in the 1940’s and ww2
Two words "Radon gas".
Oh wow a little vein of radium?
Need better lighting 😉 ! 👌✔️
You really need a limiter on the audio of your videos. That counter is crazy loud
It’s interesting to me that this kind of sandstone landscape is as rich with uranium as it is. I live out near STG and there are a number of old uranium mines out this way, also. Not nearly to the extent that there is in the Swell or around Moab/Canyonlands, but still quite a bit. I haven’t personally explored any of them and I think they’ve been sealed due to the population explosion out this way, but they do show up on some of the USGS maps. Even if they can’t be explored (it’s unlikely I’d do that anyway), it’s still an awesome piece of history.
the more you know …. When can we expect a follow up on this mine ?
My uncle was a miner up in Elliott Lake.
The uranium mines have been capped for years now, but surrounding area residents suffer and die because of a type of dirty cancer as the doctors have called it, in the area.
Many think it is caused by the old uranium mines, seeing as most effected are within just a few kilometres radius of the old mines.
Unfortunately this dirty cancer took my uncle too.
I’d never goto a uranium mine, capped or not.
Would you die if you ate those yellow rocks?
Are you getting blasted with radiation?
Omg. The dangerous uranium mine killed Kenny.
isn’t Uranium radio active?
sweet Jesus that geiger counter is like 2 grand !
There’s a methode to make an explosion before you enter the mine that will trigger rock collapse. It should be safe to enter after a explosion.
Your pretty funny, lol, you are in a dark mine and the only one in there, and your like, "it’s so quiet in here, weird" I had to start laughing because what were you expecting a party in there😉😂😁
Can even see some white “snow” effect in your camera when you turn off the flashlight to use the UV
You should probably be wearing a hard hat!
why don’t you have any detectors with you???
I remember hearing some guy talk one time(or many). Galen Windsor, I think his name was?….
Everything was great but you did not need the loud 🔊 🔊 alarm for so long. That ruined the video for me.
For those that are OMG! with the roentgen (geiger) counter buzzing. Take refuge in the inverse square law and distance. It’s the type of exposure that is harmful
I love that cave but its hot scarey
That drone shot at the end was really cool!
@5:00 miners held the rock at the entrance with bacon strips to keep it secure.
This is what happens when the mine manager is more interested in profit than safety, not organised, over use of dynamite, not supported to last ,timbers, pig stys would last for a hundred years in that environment. Poor mining.
which you had better lighting.
Hasn’t processing improved with uranium so less rich ore is profitable?
After watching this video I found this interesting old video on Radon Gas etc.
that was really neat with the black light! Awesome explore!
I’m guessing your name is Dangerous McCormick? And you’re exploring a uranium mine?
Makes you wonder if all the mine workers ended up getting cancer and dying
Drew, you should wear an annual dosimeter as you are going into and being exposed a lot dosing. Would they even let you on a plane with a geiger counter?
John Wayne died and a lot of the film crew got cancer from filming by old uranium mines!
Really enjoying your content. I was wondering if you could go into more detail on how the different (minerals?) carnatite? were mined or extracted from the rock. Were the miners at certain mines exposed to radiation such that they developed health problems, etc. I don’t know much about mining radioactive substances which is probably why I’m so fascinated with your channel. Keep up the good work!
Join me next week as I explore the elephants foot and later this month I’ll be exploring the four reactor cores at Fukushima
You dont want to be contanimated
Better torch next time you are in that mine, really interesting
What should scare a smart person…. would be to ask the geological process the Uranium served. By removing… what did YOU interrupt? oh…so the internal earth process has stopped from you minibg??? Dumb greedy Human.
Old miner here. Completely stupid. You never go back to abandoned workings. 1 cubic foot of sandstone is about 130lb.
You alone???? Not smart
I think we still have the ore charts and mine maps for all of those mines in that particular area.
There are used to be a 25’ diameter shaft just south of there but I believe they have closed them all off. Most of those mines they purposely pulled the pillars and caved them in. They even been mined back into to see if they missed anything. They did miss a pretty big area that was mined out in the late 80’s early 90’s.
This reminds me of some of the old cinnabar stopes that I’d checked out.
I wonder if breathing the dust your feet stir up is a bad thing.
Where is the women workers if women are so = to a man? Lol
