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!

Out searching for colorado gold camp and leadville paydirt.
the offshoot was probably exploratory trying to see if there was a parallel vein – which often happens with these kinds of deposits.
Where do you find abandoned mines? I like taking photos, outside of course
Have you heard of any gold mines above the million $ highway in ouray???
Must be warm enough for the moths at the ceiling and cold enough to freeze at the floor
Have you ever found gold when inside one of theses caves?

Love this vid, it’s so informative!🙂
Hello! I am very happy to have found your channel. This video was great. Can’t wait to see your newer content. Thumb up, shared and subscribed.
Interesting. Good to learn about the minerals down there and the perspective from the original miners chasing the vein.
What the hell was that?
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!
GPS coordinates please??
I didn’t notice this older video. You are a NuT. Thank you for your Gold mining adventures.
I’m down in conejos county, I NEVER go into the mountains without my sidearm. Knives won’t help much
You shouldn’t touch moth wings, our oils are detrimental.
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!!
There’s plenty of hidden history in these caves and mountains just stay away from any monoliths they are signs of other creatures you should avoid.
I AM GOING TO SAVE YOUR LIFE. GET A BETTER FLASHLIGHT AND USE MULTIPLE LIGHT SOURCES.
How do you get to go into this mine? Cripple Creeks are pretty much private property.
Love my home State but don’t miss the snow here in Florida😁
Im a rock-hound, i would love to meet you if you want to go back to this cave
Good money in unique stone.
For beads or jewlery
Buy yourself some gaiters
If you laced up your boots, your feet would stay drier.
The Moths that you touched will never fly again and will die.
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
💪💪💪 sweet awesome adventure
America "NOW" is like Wiemer Germany , with NO HITLER !
What camera are you using??
Thank you very much for your description of the minerals while mine exploring too few explorers say much while on their explore.
Any chance you’d tell me a location? Or even a hint? Understandable if not haha
Great and interesting video! Thank you from🇫🇮
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?
Love your videos! Do you happen to know of any abandoned mines near the Hartsel or Pueblo area? Cheers!
It’s called an adit not a tunnel.
Very cool old mine. Hi from Garfield County.
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. 😉
Excellent! Thank you. Sorry I know your still Buried in snow up their. Beware the sring run off this yr. Be safe
Have you searched any areas in leadville for the fenn treasure? I used to live in leadville and will be moving back very soon.
Great job bro — you explain and show — Thanks
DUDE!! DID NONE OF YOU SPOT THE KID’S GLOVES?!!! I WOULD REPORT THAT TO AUTHORITIES!!🤔
You know there’s this cool invention called a "shovel"
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.
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
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.?
Why not keep walking in to see what the sound is? Awesome
That’s crazy who lives in Colorado
it would be wise to test this mine, it could be loaded
I think that was just ice, not stalagmites.
