    I’m in Trinity county CA and would love to work for an Top Shelf operation such as this one

  5. Ty Shaver on June 8, 2023 at 10:48 pm

    Is he drilling into dust covered tailings?

  6. Wendy Laca on June 8, 2023 at 10:51 pm

    Are you and the other members MSHA certified underground miners. I know you need a mining plan and correct safety equipment.

  7. TITIGAMES25 on June 8, 2023 at 10:51 pm

  12. M Hughes on June 8, 2023 at 10:58 pm

    Good to see these guys wearing breathing protection
    Always great videos

  13. Joshua on June 8, 2023 at 10:59 pm

    What a disappointment, not getting to see the end result.

  14. John 3:16-17 on June 8, 2023 at 10:59 pm

    Looks like you’re having a great time with other miners, Jason. Fun to work together like that. Thanks for the video. Kuddos to Dan as well.

  15. Mike Hartman on June 8, 2023 at 11:01 pm

    Excellent video. Love the collaboration and how supportive you guys are to each other.

  16. Dustin Johnson on June 8, 2023 at 11:02 pm

    Is Dan the old hippie ?

  17. Shakir on June 8, 2023 at 11:02 pm

    What makes that vein purple? Any idea?

  18. Goat Moag on June 8, 2023 at 11:03 pm

    Good stuff. I don’t remember subbing but wish I had been watching more.

  19. GokouZWAR on June 8, 2023 at 11:04 pm

    If you’ve seen dan’s video already you can skip to about 12:52 and then watch from there. Its pretty much the same video except from MBMM’s view. The gold that Dan gets from his panning is the other side of that portion to the end. A caveat tho, there are details that dan just references, so if you’re a Dan fan and want to see the other half, go there, otherwise watch the whole thing cuz this one shows the detail of that info that dan kinda skips over.

  20. Butzi Porsche on June 8, 2023 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you Jason and Dan!

  21. Goat Moag on June 8, 2023 at 11:05 pm

    Sweet, looks like I have subbed to this channel for some time. Wish youtube would send me notices, but I think I have to many subs.

  22. Darling Quisel Dela Torre on June 8, 2023 at 11:09 pm

    so incredible.. great video..

  23. david russell on June 8, 2023 at 11:10 pm

    Purple, is Amethyst,alongside gold!

  24. MrD308 on June 8, 2023 at 11:11 pm

    Here you go Jason….Perfect opportunity to grubstake these guys with some of your equipment.

  25. David Burnette on June 8, 2023 at 11:11 pm

    Fill it up 😮

  26. Roger Dudra on June 8, 2023 at 11:15 pm

    Greetings from the BIG SKY. Thanks for showing the truth.

  27. Hill Valley on June 8, 2023 at 11:15 pm

    These guys need a vacuum system like they have at some of the Opal mines here in Australia 🇦🇺. You just suck it all up to the surface.

  29. Seldoon Nemar on June 8, 2023 at 11:17 pm

    that PAPR setup has gotta be nice in a mine. never considered it for that application strangely (I’m a welder, so we have the clear shield version for grinding)
    Also, I love that hesitation when you hopped down and said you were going to start mucking for him and he clearly thought it was for the camera when he hesitated going back with the chipper. Nah dawg, Jason’s here to WORK!
    I love it, too many mining shows make way more of mining than it is.
    there’s something zen about just digging a hole that pays the bills .
    Keep up the amazing work!
    20:48 I love their track setup. smart using a big pully on a steel band like that. that thing probably rolls like honey on that setup

    Yall need to get Jeff and Slim there with yinz guys ,,, Just an old MSHA guy

  32. Michael Lewis on June 8, 2023 at 11:18 pm

    I love how Dan Hurd has simpler and more sensational videos that are awesome for anybody to watch, and you have the more technical and in depth (no pun intended) videos that go into way more detail on things. It makes for an awesome combination because Dan gets me interested and learning about what is going on, and then you satisfy my itch to know even more! You to are a perfect combo, each doing the type of video that the other isn’t and it creates a perfect package every time!

    So what particles are needed to load a particle collider to create gold or other precious metals

  35. Amulek on June 8, 2023 at 11:21 pm

    That’s actually a shaft not a portal but some good looking material

  40. Harlos Mining on June 8, 2023 at 11:28 pm

    Hi Jason, we have good grounds in Tanzania, ask the brothers to come to Tanzania for sight seeing will, there plenty of Gold in Africa it just needs some investments

  41. Michael Wayne Prange on June 8, 2023 at 11:28 pm

    If you got children, medical, you better be getting that light because it’s probably blowing around drive and see what it does, and shake it up in a jar with a light through the other side of a full

  43. Tom Saunders on June 8, 2023 at 11:29 pm

    Sorry. I have been in the mining industry for over 40 years and the only mining I am seeing here is YouTube subscribers 😢

  46. GokouZWAR on June 8, 2023 at 11:32 pm

    your videos are way higher quality over dan’s lol. Sorry Dan, need to get yourself 4k 60fps camera!

  47. Erik Nielsen on June 8, 2023 at 11:34 pm

    Great video.. That was one impressive litle air hammer he had there. And I almost think it’s the same price running it as a big electric if running on a diesel compressor. Becourse the electric will run on a generstor. and it will save the back

  48. PacificNorthwestLiving on June 8, 2023 at 11:37 pm

    I would seriously clean up with a big wet dry vac

  49. rasta ralph on June 8, 2023 at 11:38 pm
