GOLD MINING CRIPPLE CREEK COLORADO
GOLD MINING CRIPPLE CREEK COLORADO
I HEAD OUT TO SEE A MINE! I head to cripple creek, Colorado to see the Mollie Kathleen gold mine 1 mile from cripple creek it has a 1000 ft drop. I knew it was probably going to be fun but a lot of info and the guide was awesome so much info. I cut a lot out so you could experience it all yourself. $20 per adult $ 12 per kid tours on the hour tell the summer hours every 30 minutes. AWESOME TOUR
That was cool , I`ve been down a coal mine 400 ft this is alot cleaner & air powered .
I work underground in a gold mine in Fiji Islands.
Maybe it’s just me, but it looks so fake.
I took this tour also, was sad to hear about the donkeys being left way down in the mine until Teddy Roosevelt came through and heard about it, didn’t like it, made them bring the donkeys out for sunshine a couple of hours per day but after some fell out of the harness taking them back up and died they gave up and just left them topside.
good God, this guy talks slow. irritating.
That’s it I’m going to be a gold digger. I’m literally going to dig gold out 😀
How much was the tour in the mine?
I’ve operated all those type of hoists, stopers and jackeleg drills. Hate it, its a sucky job.
I went this year it was the best experience ever the minors explain excellent information if you plan on going I recommend you go here
I must have went into old mine, i love this old town,spent a week there.
Where is the weed shops
When I went there in the early 80s it looked like the town was dying.
But you got to love it the Molly Kathleen mine still going strong after 100 plus years
I lived in Colorado for many years I remember cripple Creek before it was a gambling town LOL the highway going up to creeper creek was a little bit different cuz you had to go through the little eye tunnel which is one way in and one way out I remember so many great things about that place even though old highway that went from cripple Creek to Vickers which is no longer there because the gold mining company destroyed everything there
I use to work in the mines for 6 years running a excavator loading haul trucks
One of the best underground gold mine tour because the mine never closed from 19th century it has been always open owned by the same family. Your not getting a fake setup mine or even a modern looking mine.
Seems like a nice place to retire? Too bad you have corrupted Dems in your govn there!
Thanks for the video… i used to work underground gold mine here in australia and we used to drive into the mine and had trucks going down into the mine
Went there in 2018 to watch the Pikes Peak hill climb and visited the mine then, well worth a visit.
Not for all of the precious metals and stones in all of creation could you intice me underground while yet breathing. Not without one hell of a to-the-death fight.
Great Tour thank you!
We could use some support over at out channel =) I love Cripple Creek, I grew up there (part time)
9:00 on x 2 speed. Horse racing commentary 😛
That was cool! Neat to see some operations still using "bucket and rail" still!
Interesting but to small a place for me.
Is this the Mamie R mine?
At least the miners don’t have to worry about sun spots, and sun burns as much as people working outdoors.
Very cool tour!!! Will have to check it out next time we’re out that way. If you ever get out to the black hills in South Dakota there’s a couple of mine tours and old mines.
Been out here for 35 yrs. and I still haven’t went through those mines?
Thanks to you. I just did.
I’ve done a lot of bow hunting closer to Victor. And back in the day when I was a bit younger. I built the Double Eagle and did a lot of the remodel on the Gold Rush casinos. Great video. Very informative. Later man.
I take it you film with a Gopro, yes?
We kept the ore car connected to the track muckr. Saves time! Just saying!
I went a few years back…did some gambling and it was he best experience ever…It was like a flashback in time!
Talks too fast for me to learn very much………….if anything.
