In 1883, six miners found gold at the Providence Mine in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. This mine has long disappeared from all maps and mention, except for an earlier 1900s topo map. In this episode, my son and I set out by Jeep and foot to find this long lost mine, and see if there’s any evidence of its existence left.
This video will be split into a two-part series, as I try and include a lot of uncut footage to bring you into the experience with us. Enjoy!
