Spooky! Exploring Abandoned Mines Colorado

Spooky! Exploring Abandoned Mines Colorado

In search of The Lost Hobo Mine!
Chest deep snow and a harrowing descent into the old abandoned mine shaft!
Is this the squatters fabled gold mine!?
The story goes; “There is a long haired scruffy fellow, living in an abandoned gold mine here in Summit County Colorado. Once a week he ventures into Whole Foods n buys $800 worth of tasty food. He pays with crisp $100 bills and always has a raggedy empty burlap sack tucked into his waist”. He must be selling his high grade gold ore here locally to someone.
I want to find him! and make friends!! Let’s Go!

    Nice find man. I would take some samples from that ore shoot. Looks like the stoped it out but without goin up there we’ll never know. I’d check the ground under the cross ties too. Could have good stuff goin down, but didn’t see any winzes so.?

    I’m down in conejos county, I NEVER go into the mountains without my sidearm. Knives won’t help much

  5. Patrick jones on May 11, 2021 at 9:46 am

    I didn’t notice this older video. You are a NuT. Thank you for your Gold mining adventures.

  6. Rick L. on May 11, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Must be warm enough for the moths at the ceiling and cold enough to freeze at the floor

  7. john brownlee on May 11, 2021 at 9:48 am

    Have you ever found gold when inside one of theses caves?

  8. Joshua Hutcheson on May 11, 2021 at 9:49 am

    Enjoy your videos, very informative!! I know of a few mines in Idaho springs that I explored as a teenager that go on for miles and miles. Wish I would have known more back then!

  9. SCSColoradoable on May 11, 2021 at 9:49 am

    Ahhhhh! Frightening! I’m glad you made a video of this…too sketchy and cold for me. I kept waiting to see a bear! I thought your gloves on the ground were bones at first lol

  10. Christopher Dodgin on May 11, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Im a rock-hound, i would love to meet you if you want to go back to this cave

    πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ sweet awesome adventure

  12. ole canole on May 11, 2021 at 9:52 am

    If you laced up your boots, your feet would stay drier.

  13. mudlogga on May 11, 2021 at 9:58 am

    It’s called an adit not a tunnel.

  14. Tangled Shoelace on May 11, 2021 at 10:00 am

    Thanks for explaining what kind of mineral we were looking at!! That’s very interesting!! Use to live in Colorado springs. Our weekend excursions were usually cripple creek and victor . I can feel
    history in old mining towns !! Love the old west!!

  15. William Oconnor on May 11, 2021 at 10:01 am

    Great job bro — you explain and show — Thanks

  16. Volkisch Fraulein on May 11, 2021 at 10:01 am

    Love this vid, it’s so informative!πŸ™‚

  17. harold vonhelms on May 11, 2021 at 10:06 am

    it would be wise to test this mine, it could be loaded

  18. Vesbolk on May 11, 2021 at 10:06 am

    WAY too dangerous for me!

  19. Andrew Dufresne on May 11, 2021 at 10:08 am

    I’ve only briefly explored old mines in Colorado, but it is quite fun! I am gonna get a toxic gas monitor, and better safety equipment. I would love to explore with you next summer sometime. I’m in Gunnison county but travel around a bit

  20. Third Eye Pyramids on May 11, 2021 at 10:08 am

    Why not keep walking in to see what the sound is? Awesome

  21. Fastboi R1 on May 11, 2021 at 10:08 am

    Have you heard of any gold mines above the million $ highway in ouray???

  22. ric 63 on May 11, 2021 at 10:08 am

    Interesting. Good to learn about the minerals down there and the perspective from the original miners chasing the vein.

  23. Annie B on May 11, 2021 at 10:10 am

    This was an awesome video! Had my attention right to the end. I’m kinda binging on your videos now and got three in before I had to remind myself to go comment on the first one lol. Quick question.. I’m in Fremont County (yay..) and I was wondering if you are exploring public land in this video? Are you sure the mine isn’t owned? Around here, people will chase you down just for panning on thier land in the Arkansas River! Kinda makes it hard to pan when all the land on the rivers around here are claimed. I’m a beginner if you can’t tell!

  24. Gulf Coast Girl on May 11, 2021 at 10:11 am

    Wow!! That is crazy! One thing to do that during the spring and summer but winter! Wow impressive!!!

  25. eric h on May 11, 2021 at 10:11 am

    Any chance you’d tell me a location? Or even a hint? Understandable if not haha

  26. Squid Harrison on May 11, 2021 at 10:11 am

    GPS coordinates please??

  27. Travailer on May 11, 2021 at 10:14 am

    Thank you very much for your description of the minerals while mine exploring too few explorers say much while on their explore.

  28. llamabox on May 11, 2021 at 10:14 am

    Love the videos. Hello from Saguache county.

  29. Blaney Crabbe on May 11, 2021 at 10:15 am

    What the hell was that?

  30. Joseph GEIS on May 11, 2021 at 10:15 am

    The Moths that you touched will never fly again and will die.

  31. E Stars on May 11, 2021 at 10:15 am

    Very cool old mine. Hi from Garfield County.

  32. gaming is fun l on May 11, 2021 at 10:16 am

    That’s crazy who lives in Colorado

  33. Diggin30 on May 11, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Wow, that was fun! Walking in that heavy snow could not have been easy. I got the chills watching this

  34. richard mccallum on May 11, 2021 at 10:20 am

    Do you ever go prospecting up left hand canyon in Boulder county if so I’d love to go I been prospecting up there all summer and found a gold telluride. I haven’t been in any mines though just around them

  35. Braeden C. on May 11, 2021 at 10:21 am

    I think that was just ice, not stalagmites.

  36. ammobake on May 11, 2021 at 10:24 am

    the offshoot was probably exploratory trying to see if there was a parallel vein – which often happens with these kinds of deposits.

  37. candler cutcliffe on May 11, 2021 at 10:26 am

    Have you searched any areas in leadville for the fenn treasure? I used to live in leadville and will be moving back very soon.

  38. BruceSchultzAu on May 11, 2021 at 10:28 am

    Wow mate what an adventure
    We live on the same planet but world’s apart. It’s over 40 degrees C every day by 11 am in my mining area.

  39. Ashley Wierzba on May 11, 2021 at 10:30 am

    I’m new to exploring for different minerals, gems, etc. What advice do you have for a beginner? And also, how do you find open claims?

  40. Rick L. on May 11, 2021 at 10:31 am

    The sound editing is laughably bad and quite annoying/distracting at times. Love the attention to the minerals on in the mine. Most mine explores I watch just flash by interesting rock formations while they look for ore carts and boring stuff. πŸ˜‰

  41. Live Lyfe on May 11, 2021 at 10:33 am

    What camera are you using??

  42. Tina Preston on May 11, 2021 at 10:34 am


  43. Lacey on May 11, 2021 at 10:35 am

    You shouldn’t touch moth wings, our oils are detrimental.

  44. D B on May 11, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Pretty wild, I don’t think I would go in there..

  45. Patrick Mayer on May 11, 2021 at 10:38 am

  46. The Wyatt life on May 11, 2021 at 10:38 am

    That was awesome man! That would be freaky on your own

  47. JayBird G on May 11, 2021 at 10:40 am
