We Go Inside The TURQUOISE MOUNTAIN Mine

#abandonedmines #explornigmines #turqouisemine
While I was out exploring the Ed Nazelrod cabins and trailers, I also explored inside the Turquoise Mountain Mine. This mine is also part of the Ancient Mines as Well. The colors of the rock inside the mine are just amazing, burgundies, whites, gold colors and some turquoise colors; it was indescribable.
Here’s a Link that describes a little of the history about The Halloran Spring Turquoise Mine

    Might be some ancient pueblos but if there isnt any pithouse/kiva structures it probably isnt.

    Is it allowed to take small/medium pieces, I ask because turquoise is my birthstone and don’t trust most sellers knowing the fact that most turquoise currently on the market is fake.

    That would be beautiful as counter tops

    I used to live in Las Cruces and a patient of mine told me about turquoise mines he frequented-to this day I have huge regrets not taking him up on an offer to hike one to hunt for stones.

    Are there any active the public can access?

    I visited this mine a while back thinking o could try and find some turquoise. Didn’t find anything, plus I wasn’t equiped to go down the holes. I assume the mine has been run dry by this point.

    i’m not one to find fault with what other people do, but consider the fact that when you desert drive on non roads, the tracks you leave behind stay there for years and years. In the deep desert, everything is water starved, and it just takes forever for landscape and flora to repair your tire tracks. Consider this: leave behind no trace, so the next person that comes along can have your same sense of being in a remote place where very few other people have traveled to. Great photography, and a high mineralization in the rocks there (red for iron, yellow for sulfur). Probably an interesting place for gold and silver. But, because of the turquoise (meaning high regional copper content), the quality of the gold and silver would be poor (high in copper sulfide–which makes it difficult to separate all). Thanks!

    Looks almost like the western side from Kingman feldspar mine…lol

    Some of the reds were likely mercury based on claims filed in that area.

    Such a clean mine & healthy tailings pile, I’m guessing they didn’t use chemicals to mine the stone like gold. Impressive, turq is my birthstone….those walls are so beautiful!

    Is turquoise still mined at the Turquoise Mountain Mine today?

  14. Kandy McGee on December 1, 2022 at 2:16 am

    In the video the coloring of the turquoise doesn’t do it Justice I bet it’s more beautiful and person

  15. Laurie Lahey on December 1, 2022 at 2:19 am

    Love the purple granite.

  16. Louise Bucher on December 1, 2022 at 2:21 am

    Dam Roy it looks dangerous!

  17. Steampunk Groove on December 1, 2022 at 2:25 am

    is this place open to take treasures from?
    seems there`s a bit of worthwhile digging to be done yet.

  18. Dave Suzuki on December 1, 2022 at 2:27 am

    Considering the age of those mines they seem to be in pretty good condition. Great video.

  19. debcarnes100 on December 1, 2022 at 2:29 am

    Such beautiful colors, thank you for sharing

  20. Louise Bucher on December 1, 2022 at 2:29 am

    Thanks for taking us on this tour!

    Nice video turquoise

  22. Al Patron L hefeh AJRomeromero on December 1, 2022 at 2:30 am

    I have a little natural turquoise mountain, it’s a darker green but I can see the host rock from this video. I’d like to know now many pounds of good cabbing blues and greens was extracted from here. It trips me out how much some mines yielded as too how little some did. I always wonder if theres any more valuable than lander blue pocket or mini/micro pocket mines that havnt been discovered? My first supplier of turq told me probably zero the gold rush had made almost all areas everywhere pretty well checked?? Idk if I believe that but what do I know.

  23. Dana Lightel on December 1, 2022 at 2:33 am

    How is it determined where turquoise is to mine it?

  24. Mary Speidel on December 1, 2022 at 2:33 am

    Looks like the drive from Phoenix to Palm Desert.

  25. TheArea51Rider on December 1, 2022 at 2:36 am

    Very cool!

  26. Louise Bucher on December 1, 2022 at 2:36 am

    Beautiful stone!
