As always, I enjoyed your videos. I like the short segments you do for each location. Much easier to watch at leisure.

Mina Mine, NV 2020


https://youtu.be/iOIPg0Cgqo8



Join me as I explore the historic buildings at the Mina Mine, a cinnabar (mercury) mine in central Nevada. There are several small shop buildings at the mine, and a large mill. I also found cabins dating back to the mine’s founding, and several other structures including an interesting bunkhouse.

Explore a pair of small cinnabar (mercury) mining camps in central Nevada. You’ll see old cabins, ore bins, a crumbling root cellar, plus a well and pump house.

Orizaba Mine, NV 2020


https://youtu.be/bss4G9ur31A



Join me as I explore some very picturesque ruins at Orizaba, NV and the Orizaba Mine. This was one of the most interesting sites I visited during my 2020 trip. The mine’s structures are over 110 years old, and include two stationary boilers, a head frame, hoist, and other artifacts. You’ll also see the cabins of the old mining camp.

Aragonite Mine, NV 2020

This is a small but very cool mine in western Nevada. It has an unusual headframe, and all of the hoist house machinery is intact.

Cole Slaw Mine, NV 2020


https://youtu.be/vN498b6rVw0


Come along as I explore a rarely-seen mining camp in a remote area of western Nevada. I’ve given this mine a fake name to protect it from vandalism.

The mining camp includes a mill, a well-built cabin, a garage and workshop, outhouses, and a water tank. There are also ruins and artifacts from an earlier period of the mine.

Yeah, it was a very well-built cabin in excellent condition, so it was really a shame to find it so messed up inside. I couldn't tell how the rats got in. I'm guessing they must have tunneled under the floor and found an opening, or a weak spot they could chew through.

The cabin looked like it hadn't been opened in a long time, and the air inside was extremely stale and foul. My main concern is hantavirus, which is spread through the air by inhaling dust etc from rodent droppings. It's hard to tell in the photos but there were a LOT of rodent droppings in that cabin.

There a lots of rats in the desert, even much drier places than this. Mostly packrats and kangaroo rats. Mice too.

Thanks for the videos Ray. I'm enjoying them. I was surprised to see a TV in that cabin.

There's a VCR too -- definitely no cable or broadcast TV out there. Obviously someone was living in the cabin as recently as the 1980s or 1990s.
