Exploring The Hidden Hole Mine – Nevada Gold Mine

Exploring The Hidden Hole Mine – Nevada Gold Mine

In this video we dig out a blocked portal and find an interesting mine behind it. We find a cool wooden door leading to a colorful vein. We also review the Survival Gear Collapsible Shovel.

    In the video you’re not too far from an abandoned mine that is filled with old news papers. Stacked 3-6ft high and all from the 40-80

    I feel a comment is needed here about something. First, I’m not making a comment for negative purposes. Just ethical and legal purposes. Since abandoned mines all pose at least some element of hazard to the general curious public, (not those with a specific hobby of exploring them), they know the hazards and can safely assess them and choose their actions accordingly. But I’m talking about the general curious inexperienced public. Digging out a naturally filled and inaccessible abandoned mine portal opens it to the general inexperienced public. Thus such persons could be injured or killed as a result. I personally wouldn’t want any action by me to result in such a misfortune to someone. My rule of thumb if I found a n inaccessible portal is to move on as there’s plenty of accessible ones to enter and explore and I can feel good about my actions. From a legal point, If I’m not mistaken , It’s illegal to dig in open or inside of any mine without having a mining claim on it. as per federal mining law. Not being negative, just expressing a point.

    Another great video, Tom! I’m a little confused – is this the mine that I told you about that I had never been to but always wanted to go to in that one canyon? If it is that particular mine, I thought you told me that the entrance to that one was completely collapsed, a definite no-go, and one that you did not access. Maybe I mis-read your email. I’ll have to go back and look. Anyway, those were unusual load marks. It’s usually the dots that we’ve seen countless times. Great shot at 4:20 showing how the erosion plug forms and how it looks from inside the mine. I have been in a mine or two where the rock was kind of damp and wet like that and rather crumbly. Probably not the most stable material to dig a mine through, that’s for sure!

    You should be glad you have a wife that will go do that with you,,, most of us do not.

    6:31 "continuing on" into what appears to be a scene directly from a horror movie lol, I’m just waiting for two eyes to start glowing off in the distance someday from some inner earth monster ;p . . . you truly are fearless kind sir! I hike and explore the topographical side of our world oftentimes alone and in the dark, but this doesn’t phase me. I’ve gone spelunking before and it’s cool but definitely a little creepy to me, highly rewarding, as I’m a surveyor my mind goes to how can I map this out. I would explore here with someone like you without fear, but going at it alone would give me the willies. Great job Sir!

    Do you guys have a mine gate key? Would you slip through a broken gate? [I might] There’s a fellow with a channel that has a mine key he’s used to video places. I don’t know why we all find this to be so fascinating but it just is. Not as much fun if there are no artifacts though.

  10. Mine Adventures on January 17, 2023 at 8:33 am

    Well, I loved the shorts, the gun and the shovel, nice accoutrements. Julie’s helmet looked nice and shiny. I noticed the dead end. Lol. Just teasing, LOL. I would say something about the soft and wet material and exploring the hole mine, but I won’t, LOL

  11. clifford maxwell on January 17, 2023 at 8:34 am

    Hey Tom that 3 piece Swiss army knife shovel was cool handy tool I just realized that mine had a nice door on it as you were on your way back out prince song lol Take good care of Miss Julie stay safe guys!

  12. Cannonx07 on January 17, 2023 at 8:37 am

    Where can I find some of the mines around Vegas? I remember one up by Pahrump but it’s been years since my uncle showed me that one.

  13. Allen Oxendine on January 17, 2023 at 8:37 am

    Thanks for sharing.. You seem to be the only one that visits these places.. Full View Like 34

  14. ronnie cardy on January 17, 2023 at 8:42 am

    Very good mine but you had to dig out a few pounds of fill to go in to check it out was a small mine

  15. Iron Black on January 17, 2023 at 8:42 am

    Whered you get he shovel Tom, it looks like it would do what I need it for?

  16. Pidasian Hippie on January 17, 2023 at 8:42 am

    The things you won’t do to get to explore a mine. I hope those folks who made that shovel at least gave it to you for the excellent job you did showing what it is capable of. The only thing missing was opening a cold drink at the end of that trek with the bottle opener on it.

  17. Dale Vanatta on January 17, 2023 at 8:45 am

    Do you need to carry snakes maybe?

  18. Edie Ed on January 17, 2023 at 8:52 am

    Can these be purchased and stocked with couple hundred ozs of silver and allowed to breathe on the surrounding lands for the purpose creating of weather and ultra high quality berries??? That’s all I’m trying to do asap. You’d get so much rain…..all year long even…..what’s the deal? Yo

  19. Stephen Hornak on January 17, 2023 at 8:52 am

    Julie is such a good sport following you into these mines. I congratulate her for this. Tom you got a great wife there. Congratulations to both of you.

  20. ROBERT LASTER on January 17, 2023 at 8:54 am

    Where is this hole? Coordinates?

  21. Jeff Gray on January 17, 2023 at 8:54 am

    Glad to see your packing some heat.

  22. Iron Black on January 17, 2023 at 8:56 am

    Do not ever invite me,,,,I bring things, and I cook, you will get fat.

  23. Sassy :) on January 17, 2023 at 8:56 am

    Kinda creepy walk.

  24. Hike Camp on January 17, 2023 at 8:57 am

    I have a little shovel just like that.. Can’t say I have ever used it to get into a mine…LOL Lots of color in that mine 😎

  25. Vantastic Odyssey on January 17, 2023 at 8:57 am

    wow, pretty cool, 🙂

  26. 001DesertRat on January 17, 2023 at 8:58 am

    Tom & Julie — Nice find & explore . On your little shovel is there a coarse-toothed saw blade in one of the handle sections? I have one very similar that I’ve carried in my truck for over 30 years & mine has a saw in the handle . Julie , don’t be afraid of a Bat , it’s just a flying Mouse . You’re not afraid of Mice are you ? — < Doc > .

  27. Beeps & Eat's Finding food & treasure on January 17, 2023 at 8:58 am

    Not a large mine but it looked like they had good deposits in it. But the last hundred feet were getting pretty rotten. Might be why they had to pull out of that one. They sure didn’t do much timbering by the looks of things! Thanks guys! I love watching your adventures!👍

  28. kyote on January 17, 2023 at 8:59 am

    Tom and Julie.
    I really injoy your videos.Tom were you a prospector miner

  29. Sportsman 101 on January 17, 2023 at 9:00 am

    So cool that you’re able to go explore these places, all the mines here in MN are closed off or require a tour to see

  30. Sassy :) on January 17, 2023 at 9:01 am

    Very beautiful blues and yellows tho. Id be a bat chicken too tho.

  31. Drew Conrad on January 17, 2023 at 9:06 am

    Some beautiful country.

  32. Rupal Patel on January 17, 2023 at 9:07 am

    Thank you so much sir

    Зачем я бы вхожу в старая и опасная золотодобыча? Этот огромный риск.
