The life on a mining village in Western Australia
After working 9 months in different mining sites around Western Australia, I decided to make this little video after realizing that unless you've been there, it's really hard to imagine what is it to live on a mine site village. It's usually way better that what people imagine...

Ghost towns - Wittenoom, Australia
Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. This town in Western Australia has the baleful reputation of being home to the greatest industrial disaster in Australian history. Wittenoom was the site of an asbestos mine, where thousands of workers and their families were exposed to lethal levels of blue asbestos 1,000 times higher than was legally regulated at the time. Though the town was shut down in 1966, today the air remains contaminated and toxic to breathe if stirred, and the state of Western Australia has the highest rate of malignant mesothelioma per capita of anywhere in the world. Today, three residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas.

Wittenoom - The Abandoned Blue Asbestos Mine Ghost Town & The Residents Who Refuse To Leave
Wittenoom - The Blue Asbestos Ghost Town & The Residents Who Refuse To Leave Devils Dust Movie Trailer - The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0REkJuPi1zw Devil's Dust is a two-part Australian television docu-drama mini-series on the ABC which first screened in 2012. Based on journalist Matt Peacock's 2009 book Killer Company, Devil's Dust was researched and developed by producer Stephen Corvini for over two years prior to the series' production. Through the factual case of Bernie Banton, it recounts the tragedy of many Australian workers and their families afflicted with asbestosis and mesothelioma in the twentieth-century asbestos mining and processing industries. Though the extreme health risks of exposure to asbestos dust had been documented for many years, manufacturer James Hardie persisted in large-scale use of the material, aided by inadequate regulation by state health agencies. BEFORE he died an early death at 61 in 2007, Australia knew Bernie Banton as the smiling man with asbestosis who carried an oxygen bottle wherever he went. We didn't know all that much about him at first, just that he was up against the polished legal might and political clout of building materials manufacturer James Hardie. I still remember the company's name stamped on sheets of "fibro" in the local hardware yard. I had no idea the lives of thousands of Australians might have been jeopardised by asbestos in materials such as this. Or that underfelt made from shredded asbestos bags under old carpet leaked pain. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil%27s_Dust Banton seemed an ordinary bloke, a former factory worker, who soon became the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases. But, as this two-part series reveals, there was more to Banton than many of us realised as we watched the emerging folk hero on TV waging his seemingly losing battle against the corporate figureheads of the James Hardie company. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/arts/review/no-clean-sweep-as-miniseries-devils-dust-tackles-bernie-bantons-asbestos-story/story-fn9n8gph-1226513068301 Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 – 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely-recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries' products. Bernie himself suffered from asbestosis, Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease (ARPD) and then finally peritoneal mesothelioma. These conditions required him to carry an oxygen tank wherever he went. The 2009 book Killer Company details Banton's fight against James Hardie. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Banton Bernie Banton on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cjhzvzoo0sk Banton brought an action against Amaca Pty Ltd before the Dust Diseases Tribunal of New South Wales https://safetyatworkblog.com/2012/10/30/devils-dust-australian-movie-on-asbestos-and-corporate-morality/ Exposure to Deadly Asbestos, Pesticides, Illegal Dumping etc - The Dangers, Examples, Advice & Warnings - James Hardie Australia ( Mesothelioma ) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhyT97-KaZ_04EsHUmFurL1vLBSdMtzzR Devils Dust - Deadly Natural Blue Asbestos Facts & Dangers - Products of Asbestos - Mesothelioma https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eKi4_AM6l8

Finding a ghost town in perfect condition is rare even in Nevada. The real kicker was the clock that was still ticking away, although off by a few hours, it was an interseting thing to see. I discovered this strange place after searching public land maps. I spend a lot of time scouring public land maps to find the best hidden locations rarely visited. When I spotted this place, I knew I had to check it out. I visited this location twice. When I arrived the first time, I was certain something was wrong. There was no way this was abandoned on public land, so I left. I figured it was Private Property, and we try to never enter private property. I went home and cross referenced the Public Land Maps with MyLandMatters.org and County records, and sure enough, this was public BLM land. It was apparent that only 3 or 4 people know this place exists, and they seem to keep the place a secret. I can't say I blame them, and I will not share this location with anyone. Inside the building there is a log book of those who have visited this cabin, and the interesting thing is, there are only 4 entries dating back to the 1970's, and three of those entries were by the same person. This suggests only a very select few know this place exists. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT ... Please turn off ad blocker and support us! We can only make more videos with revenue generated through our ads.

In 1893 a coal mine in Tivoli Queensland is flooded, killing seven men. The mine is drained and filled. 2017: Whilst fossicking near a fill pile at the site, I found a strange artifact,a piece of black chert inscribed with a map of the east coast of Australia along with an Ogam like inscription. The reverse side of the stone has a face carved in relief resembling the face on mars that even seems to scale with the mile long mound on mars. The object was located right next to a chunk of what I thought was tertiary coal amber, which was later found to be a fossil skull of some kind of extinct animal that had been converted to an amber colored type of quartizite containing copper and possibly gold particles, Im assuming this is an endocast of the original skull. If anybody has the slightest clue what this item is and whom (meaning what culture) may have carved it, please contact me at... [email protected]

Australia's Unknown "Oak Island", Excavation attempts.. PLUS site visit to treasure area!
This video follows on from the previous one. We tell the story of the excavations at the site! From the video: The newspaper articles say that about 120 years ago, Kerosene Jack was seen walking around, peering at the ground in various beaches around queenscliff. He was an amiable kind of guy, but became strangely reticent when questioned about any treasure. Nevertheless it is he who may have formed most of the legend of hte treausre. A pirates map had been tatooed on his arm. One article states that he lived in a shack made up of kerosene cans. Another says his name was Jack Karissimo. Some say his name was actually Stringaree Jack. He seems to have died decades before the big treasure-hunting syndicates were able to tackle the site, as an old man. Every newspaper article seems to tell a different tale. It seems people began looking for the treasure in response to Kerosene Jack's drunken tales in the 1920s. One article from the 20s, claimed the council's main interest in the matter was simply filling in holes in the beach which had been dug. Syndicates seem to have been digging since about 1900. A well-funded syndicate in 1935 located one likely location using dowsing rods. They began digging in earnest. In 1937 they abandoned their almost fifty foot shaft as it was filling with water. By 1938, they had resumed their shaft, with a pump which could displace 50,000 gallons per hour. At one time they halted their excavation until they could bring in 'powerful submarine lights'. They also brought in huge steel cylinders to shore up the shaft they had dug, spending thousands of pounds on their enterprise. Alternately, the articles seem to be suggesting these steel cylinders were a kind of bathysphere, for men to work in. By now this syndicate had sunk various timbered shafts around a central hole, with a mining engineer in charge, with boring equipment. Labourers and divers were even hired but in the end, around the beginning of the war, it is said that their reward was only sand. In one newspaper article from 1938, the journalist says he was shown some recovered treasure in Queenscliff, by one hunter. It consisted of pistols and swords supposedly once belonging to Ben Bonito. The hunter claimed that he was refused permission to dig, as he did not specify the location, and they feared he would dig up the main street of Queens-cliff. At 58 feet, the team found an underwater room, but nothing came of it. In the 1950s a new and even larger syndicate took over. They used a dowser who employed two sharp metal rods, to sense electromagnetic energies of the gold. When he walked over the site, the recoil was so hard that the rods snapped back and nearly cut his thumbs off. This was convincing enough for the syndicate to begin digging in earnest. The syndicate was fuelled by the discovery of a seventeenth century Spanish coin near the cliffs. This however may have just been a plant. It was said to have been backed by 'wealthy western grazers'. A pump which could displace 350,000 gallons per hour was brought in, and a huge mechanical scoop. Allegedly, on one weekend, such was the newspaper frenzy that seven thousand holiday-goers from Melbourne arrived to shake their hands and wish them luck. One article by a journalist claims that he was told by a publican that the syndicate members were in his bar, 'celebrating' one night and passing a round object between themselves. Since it was run by an open-cut mining engineer, By 1955, the hole was being described in newspapers as a 'crater', sixty feet deep, with only an old 1880s Enfield rifle recovered. One story says that students of the nearby school are scared that gelignite blasting would shatter their windows, and debris was falling on students. Another story says the windows did shatter and the students were cut by flying glass. The syndicate apologised and promised no more blasting, but it was too late. The government swiftly stepped in and despite howls of protest, their licence was revoked, and the team banished from the site forever, along with all other excavations. Over time people would forget that the possible treasure even existed... I decided to visit with some friends and have a look, we went to the blasting site and later some cliff caves on the other side of the peninsula. Check this out!

It was founded by gold prospectors in 1888, and gazetted in 1890.[2] It is the major town and administrative centre of the Shire of Yilgarn.[3] At the 2006 census, Southern Cross had a population of 708.[1] The town of Southern Cross is one of the many towns which run along the Mundaring to Kalgoorlie Goldfields Water Supply Scheme engineered by C. Y. O'Connor.[4] A succession of gold rushes in the Yilgarn region near Southern Cross in 1887, at Coolgardie in 1892, and at Kalgoorlie in 1893 caused a population explosion in the barren and dry desert centre of Western Australia. It is named after the Southern Cross constellation,[2] and the town's most significant streets are named after stars. Southern Cross is on the standard gauge railway from Perth to Kalgoorlie and beyond. The Prospector and Indian Pacific passenger trains service the town. The former narrow gauge railway reached Southern Cross on 1 July, 1894.[5] DON PUGH CARAVAN TRIPP 2008

South Australia: From Oceans to Outback
http://www.wanderlust.co.uk/ExploreAustralia From the rugged Outback to the glittering Southern Ocean, South Australia is known for its wildlife, food, wine and beauty. South Australia is vast, spanning nearly half a million square miles. With a population of around one point six million people, that’s just four people per square mile. Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third largest, and home to a remarkable range of wildlife. With over 800 native species of plants and rare sights like the endangered glossy black cockatoo, Kangaroo Island is typified by unspoiled wilderness and a magnificent selection of flora and fauna, including the kangaroos that give it its name. Just over a thousand sea lions live and breed in the Seal Bay Conservation Park, one of the most popular tourist attractions of Kangaroo Island. Marine life thrives all across the shores of South Australia. The state’s coastline stretches for more than 3,000 miles, and after a flight of just 40 minutes from Adelaide the mighty Eyre Peninsula awaits. Baird Bay is a small fishing village situated on the west of the peninsula. Snorkelling here isn’t a typical experience, as the the coastal waters are home to Australian sea lions and pods of dolphins. Adelaide, the state capital city, was founded in 1836 as a planned, freely settled colony. It was a place where immigrants could settle free from religious persecution. Nowadays the city remains a vibrant, bustling cultural centre, home to thriving markets, a lively night scene and dozens of festivals a year. From Adelaide’s beautiful architecture to a wealth of museums detailing its immigrant settlers, Adelaide does not shy away from its multicultural history. For example, the South Australian Museum houses the largest collection of Aboriginal ethnographic material in the world. Climbing away from the coast and the bustle of the city are the quiet, rural hills of the Barossa Valley. The Barossa is world-renowned for its red wine, and over 150 wineries lie within an hour’s drive from Adelaide. But the Barossa is not only home to wine. It’s one of the world’s top culinary destinations. The vibrancy of South Australia doesn’t end in Barossa. Follow the Stuart Highway north, beyond the hills and the vineyards of the Clare Valley to where green turns to red and the Outback begins. For many the jewel in the crown of this region is the dramatic stretch of rock known fondly as the ‘Organ Pipes’. Gawler Range. Enormous, solid volcanic rhyolite is stacked in the cliff face here, ranging in size from stony grinning teeth to the elongated pillars that remind so many people of magnificent organs. The rugged landscape of the Flinders Ranges epitomises the romanticism of outback Australia: big skies, incredible sunsets, and sun-baked desert as far as the eye can see. In the summer it’s a hot, dry landscape. It might seem daunting at first, but look a bit closer and you’ll find the place teeming with life. The Flinders Ranges have also been inhabited by humans for thousands of years. Aborigines have walked in these hills since long before European settlers arrived, using the plants and the rocks for food and creating art. The Flinders Ranges are now home to numerous towns and villages scattered along the highway. The area is accessible as a destination for hiking, cycling, camping and wildlife watching, giving visitors a taste of the iconic outback. Rawnsley Park Station is a working farm that has managed to find a way to blend sheep farming and tourism. The owners provide scenic flights over the spectacular geological formation, Wilpena Pound. Wilpena Pound is an ancient valley floor amidst mountains that have been eroded over hundreds of millions of years. Its golden walls are formed of highly resistant quartzite and sandstone. The area is protected from mining and most human impact other than tourism. Nowadays, 4x4s can be seen roaming along the ridgetops that command spectacular views of the timeless landscape. Life can nevertheless be found all over the northern reaches of South Australia. The emu is a large, flightless bird, endemic to Australia and a close relation of the ostrich. Its long legs allow it to reach speeds of up to 30 miles an hour. It has become an iconic image of Australia. Continuing up the spine of the country, we reach the northern regions of South Australia. This is opal mining country, and the Painted Desert may seem barren, but can be extremely lucrative for those willing to work. The town of Coober Pedy is the opal mining capital of the world, known for the way its people live underground in dugouts to escape the fierce desert heat. We’ve travelled from the crystal waters of the Southern Ocean to the dry beauty of the outback, covering one of the most magnificent states in Australia. The Explorers’ Way crosses the state border, slicing the country in half as it continues into the Northern Territory.

Most Dangerous Abandoned places In The World!!
Description 1.Wittenoom,Western Australia Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The area around Wittenoom was mainly pastoral until the 1930s when mining began in the area. By 1939, major mining had begun in Yampire Gorge, which was subsequently closed in 1943 when mining began in Wittenoom Gorge. In 1947 a company town was built, and by the 1950s it was Pilbara's largest town. During the 1950s and early 1960s Wittenoom was Australia's only supplier of blue asbestos. The town was shut down in 1966 due to unprofitability and growing health concerns from asbestos mining in the area. Today, three[1] residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas. The Wittenoom steering committee met in April 2013 to finalise closure of the town, limit access to the area and raise awareness of the risks. Details of how that would be achieved were to be determined but it would likely necessitate removing the town's remaining residents, converting freehold land to crown land, demolishing houses and closing or rerouting roads. By 2015 six residents remained; in 2016 the number had reduced to three. 2.Kantubek Uzbekistan Kantubek (Russian: Кантубек) was a town on Vozrozhdeniya Island (Uzbekistan) in the Aral Sea. The town is still found on maps, but is uninhabited and lies in ruins today. Kantubek used to have a population of approximately 1,500, and housed scientists and employees of the Soviet Union's top-secret Aralsk-7 biological weapons research and test site. Brian Hayes, a biochemical engineer with the United States Department of Defense's Threat Reduction Agency, led an expedition in the spring and summer of 2002 to neutralize what was believed to be the world's largest anthrax dumping grounds. His team of 113 people neutralized between 100 and 200 tonnes of anthrax over a three-month period. The cost of the cleanup operation was approximately US$5,000,000. 3.Love Canal,Niagara falls Love Canal is a neighborhood within Niagara Falls, New York. It is the site of a pollution disaster that extensively affected the health of hundreds of its residents, necessitating a Superfund cleanup operation. Originally intended in the 1890s as a planned model community, Love Canal grew and then slowly declined before being bought out in the 1940s by the Hooker Company, which dumped industrial waste in the never completed canal. In the late 1970s, Love Canal received national attention for the public health problem originating from the disposal of 22,000 barrels of toxic waste. Numerous families were displaced from their houses, which had been contaminated with chemicals and toxic waste. Many of the families suffered several health issues with common problems of high red blood cell counts and indications of leukemia. The entire neighborhood has since been demolished and a Superfund cleanup was only wrapped up in 2004. New York State Health Department Commissioner David Axelrod calls the Love Canal incident a "national symbol of a failure to exercise a sense of concern for future generations".[1] The Love Canal incident was especially significant as a situation where the inhabitants "overflowed into the wastes instead of the other way around. 4,Picher, Oklahoma Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. This was a major national center of lead and zinc mining at the heart of the Tri-State Mining District. More than a century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic metal-contaminated mine tailings (known as chat) heaped throughout the area. The discovery of the cave-in risks, groundwater contamination, and health effects associated with the chat piles and subsurface shafts resulted in the site being included in 1980 in the Tar Creek Superfund Site by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The state collaborated on mitigation and remediation measures, but a 1996 study found that 34% of the children in Picher suffered from lead poisoning due to these environmental effects, which could result in lifelong neurological problems.[4] Eventually the EPA and the state of Oklahoma agreed to a mandatory evacuation and buyout of the entire township. The similarly contaminated satellite towns of Treece, Kansas and Cardin, Oklahoma were included in the Tar Creek Superfund site.

Abandoned: Behind the scenes searching for elusive crystal mine When things don't go as planned
I was out a week ago in search of abandoned Iceland spar Crystal mine and Garabaldi gold mine at a place called Lionsville Australia. I had the maps I had the gps , I had me boots on but I came away with nothing to show but a hole in the ground and some rocks.I thought I'd put this together to show that sometimes explores don't always go as planned and this explore was one of them. Unfortunately I lost a couple of hours searching for someone close by to inform them that I'd seen an injured bull near where I'd crossed the river but found no one and had to leave a note on some ones gate about five kms away from where I saw the bull that's how remote it is out there and it was the first house I could find.I got back to searching but the lantana was so thick I couldn't get through it and maybe a machete would have been a good idea. I was up and down creeks and gullies and hills and dales and around trees and ZIP! All I go for my troubles was some rocks and the hole that I couldn't see into properly anyway. I'd planned on camping the night but rain was starting to close in so decided to call a stop to the explore for another time. At least I know where not to look next time and I'll also see where that track up the hill went. Anyway, this is just a behind the scenes video of when things don't pan out when out exploring . Thanks for checking it out . See you next video. Here is a link to a video that will explain who Skippy is that I was referring too in the video. . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9Lf5-8_i7g

Gold Trails - Discover NSW's Rich Gold Heritage Vein
Travel the backroads and byways of the goldfields landscapes on roads that were once home to both goldseekers and bushrangers looking to turn a profit. Today the remnants of the historic goldfields sit alongside the towns and villages of central and south-west NSW. In an extraordinary period from 1851 onwards, people rushed to make their fortunes on a series of goldfields that were discovered in NSW. The new finds significantly impacted the early agricultural towns and villages. New settlements were established to service thousands of prospectors and miners who came and went. Many came from Australia and overseas to win the gold, many set up businesses to feed and supply the miners, while some chose to steal. Today, this golden heritage vein underpins the story of nearly every major town and village across central and south west NSW. Every goldfield has its own trail to follow -- every goldmining family their own story to tell. Follow the GOLD TRAILS and discover for yourself, the heritage riches underpinning the towns, villages and landscapes of NSW. Here the stories of those who won the gold and those who stole the gold, are brought to life by communities committed to conserving and sharing their heritage.

Goldfields-Esperance, Western Australia
Goldfields-Esperance is one of the largest regions in Western Australia and though the majority of it is sparsely populated, Kalgoorlie and Esperance are major towns supporting significant populations. Despite the regions seeming harshness and remoteness from Perth, many Goldfieds-Esperance towns were some of the earliest to be settled in the fledgling colony. Esperance was settled in 1863 for agriculture and Coolgardie spring up almost overnight when gold was discovered and was the third largest town in the colony by 1892. The gold rush of the late 1800s gave birth to many towns that flourished and faded when the gold ran out. Some such as Kanowna, Dundas and Niagara disappeared back into the dirt leaving little more broken bottles and rusting wire to signify their existence, while others manage to hang on in a greatly diminished form. For residents and travellers alike, the Goldfields-Esperance region is generally thought of as having two halves; northern and southern, demarcated with an imaginary line at Kalgoorlie. The northern is typified by desert landscapes dominated by mining, the southern sees trees and green farmland right up to granite bound coast. Being both inland and southern, the temperatures daytime vary widely. Summer months can see scorching temperatures exceeding 40°C while its not uncommon for the night to dip below 0°C. The coastal areas have particularly temperamental weather patterns with cold cloudy and warm sunny skies alternating throughout the day. Falling into an abandoned mineshaft is a real danger in the northern parts of the region as the country around Kalgoorlie, Coolgardie, Menzies, Leonora and Laverton is riddled with more than 100 years of mining activity. Most of these holes are not signposted or marked on maps but are readily identified by the white pile of quartz or greenish waste soil nearby. Perfectly normal looking ground may be honeycombed with old tunnels mere meters underground that could subside without warning. It would be prudent to tell someone where you are going if you plan to go out exploring and be careful about where you step. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

The Most Radioactive Places on Earth
Who on Earth is exposed to the most ionizing radiation? Check out Audible: http://bit.ly/AudibleVe I'm filming a documentary for TV about how Uranium and radioactivity have shaped the modern world. It will be broadcast in mid-2015, details to come. The filming took me to the most radioactive places on Earth (and some places, which surprisingly aren't as radioactive as you'd think). Chernobyl and Fukushima were incredible to see as they present post-apocalyptic landscapes. I also visited nuclear power plants, research reactors, Marie Curie's institute, Einstein's apartment, nuclear medicine areas of hospitals, uranium mines, nuclear bomb sites, and interviewed numerous experts. Notes about measuring radiation: Sieverts are a measure of 'effective dose' - that means they measure the biological impact of the energy transferred to tissues from radiation. Obviously I owe a debt to the fantastic chart made by xkcd, which inspired my visual approach to this video. https://xkcd.com/radiation/ DOSES MAY VARY The level of radiation varies widely around the world depending mainly on altitude and geology (excluding nuclear accidents). Estimates of particular doses also vary. All numbers reported in this video should be taken as order of magnitude only. The most contentious claim may be that smokers receive the highest dose of ionizing radiation. This is not a whole body dose, but a dose to the lungs as specified in the video.

37% of Australia Earmarked for Coal or Gas Mining
New mapping reveals that 37.3% of Australia is covered by coal and gas licences and applications. That amounts to 285 million hectares - an area almost 13 times the size of Great Britain! That means your home, your local water source, or even your favourite holiday destination could be at risk! Click here to check it out! At risk are many nationally significant water resources, including: 1. The drinking water catchment for Sydney 2. The recharge waters of the international tourist icon Mataranka Hot Springs (NT) 3. The Yarragadee aquifer of south-west WA, groundwater resource for Perth 4. The magnificent desert rivers of the Lake Eyre Basin in south-west Qld 5. The Mereenie Sandstone aquifer which provides the water supply for Alice Springs 6. The vast water source of the Great Artesian Basin across Qld, NSW and South Australia The mapping was conducted by Energy and Resource Insights, who compiled the relevant coal and petroleum tenement data and release areas from state and territory governments in April 2016. The full research note outlining the methodology from Energy and Resource Insights is available here, and a formatted map for printing is available here.

Marly's visit to Broken Hill, outback NSW, Australia
I went to Broken Hill with Marlene. Broken Hill is a mining town in outback New South Wales, Australia. The line of load in Broken Hill is the richest deposit of Silver, Lead and Zinc in the world. We saw a beautiful sunrise and a huge Wedge Tail Eagle just sitting on a fence. There were also a lot of Emu's around. The roads are long and there is not a lot to see for miles and miles. When we arrived in Broken Hill, we went to the Tourist Information Centre, to get some maps and I had a sit on an Emu (not a real one!) We had a look around the town and saw the fountain at the Twin Lakes. We stopped to have a look at the Court House. It is a very beautiful old building. While we were there I had a close look at a sort of dug out canoe. Carved from Bloodwood, it represents a contemporary interpretation of aspects from traditional indigenous culture, including images portraying animals from the river. The canoe is made in two pieces, weighs approximately one tonne and contains water to represent a certain irony that it has lost it's function-it cannot float. Water is vital to this region and to the traditional people, the BAAKANTJI, which literally translates as "People of the Darling River". I visited Brown's Shaft at the Junction Mine and then went to see where The Royal Flying Doctor is based. I saw one of the older planes they used before and one of the new ones. On top of JP Keenan lookout, I got a good view around Broken Hill. I was very excited to go and see the gallery of the famous painter, Pro Hart. There was an amazing painted Rolls Royce car! At the Living Desert, there are Sandstone sculptures and a Flora and Fauna sanctuary. There is so much to see and do, even though the town is a long way from anywhere. I enjoyed my visit very much. www.marlystravels.com www.world-travel-options.com

Burning Ghost Town In Centralia, Pennsylvania
If you thought the horror movie Silent Hill was fiction, you should visit Centralia, Pennsylvania. This abandoned ghost town has had a fire burning underground for over 50 years! Due to constant spontaneous combustion and oxidation, this mysterious old coal mine is completely out of control! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most SHOCKING Biological Weapons Ever!" video here: https://youtu.be/W0Yli9y7YAk Watch our "Top 5 Most Mysterious and Powerful Secret Societies" video here: https://youtu.be/0Lu4Uvc5EhA Watch our "DEADLIEST Ship Disaster In History!" video here: https://youtu.be/8cNBVZMoalc Town literally burning for more than 50 years! There is a small town in Pennsylvania that has been burning since 1962. That’s over 50 years! What? How is that even possible? So the issue is that Centralia, Pennsylvania is on top of some of the biggest coal deposits in the world. In the 1800s miners blasted tunnels underground and then abandoned them about 100 years later. No one really knows what exactly caused the fire but the strongest theory is that some burning trash from a landfill accidentally lit the coal near an old entrance to the mine. Yeah this isn’t fog, it’s smoke. Since sometimes coal deposits are under a lot of pressure, it can even ignite without a flame. The oxygen from the empty tunnels created the perfect conditions for the fire to spread. The flames started going deeper and deeper into the surrounding area as more coal burned, and the tunnels continue to take oxygen down from the surface. It is now in a vicious, fiery cycle that is now about 300 feet deep. Coal burns slow and steady and can take ages to burn out. As long as there is enough heat, fuel, and oxygen to keep it going, there’s nothing you can do. They actually tried to put it out by drilling holes into the mine and pouring wet sand down to block off the air supply but it didn’t work. It might not seem like such a big deal since the fire is underground but it really is. The 1000 residents probably didn’t think that is was a big deal either until sulfurous fumes and carbon monoxide almost suffocated everyone in their home. The underground fire fractured the ground making sink holes all over the place. A 12-year-old almost fell in one in 1981. The roads are also affected and have smoke coming out of them! The last time they tried to put it out was in the 1980’s but since then everyone’s just given up. Today about 12 people live in Centralia and it’s a very popular destination for graffiti artists. Check out this artwork all over the road. It also draws UFO seekers... The fire covers 6 square miles and spreads 75 feet every year. While this might seem like a freak accident, these kind of fires are actually pretty common. There are mine fires burning in Wyoming, Australia, Germany, and many other parts of the world. India and China have the most serious problems with hundreds of abandoned mines all over the country. Coal mine fires can burn for centuries and it is estimated that the Central fire could burn for another 250 years!

Baker City Prospecting Full Length Movie
Brian Bolin teaches you all you need to know about prospecting for gold and gems in Baker County. In the event that you live on the North Eastern shore of the US in a zone that does not have characteristic gold stores, presumably the most obvious opportunity you need to search for gold in regions where the icy masses dumped their waste. All things considered, back to "some rubbish is other individuals' fortune," and that is the thing that we have with what the ice sheets dumped on us. It can allow you to experiment with the gold prospecting side interest close to your home before wandering off to a gold bearing district. In southwestern PA and Eastern Ohio we have a chance to make a go at searching for these frosty stores that are known not Fine Gold, Raw Diamonds and little Platinum. These are extremely fun and productive to discover. How could it have been able to it arrive? Well it truly did not have a decision. It was pushed with an inconceivable power from Canada and after that dumped in our terrace. Around there we were affected by no less than 3 primary chilly periods. The Wisconsian, Illinoian and the Kansan periods lived up to expectations and left us some fine gold to play with. A large portion of these 3 periods had various advances and retreats, so the maps will give a superior thought of where to look. The best place I have found to get great data and maps is from the US government. They have an incredible guide and data booklets accessible on there dad site. Make a point to check out while your there and download and print the books and maps that intrigue you. The Pennsylvania Glacial Deposit guide can be found at The main distinction in discovering the gold contrasted with regions that have characteristic gold stores is you will likely be managing littler rivers and streams so digging turns into a "do as well as can be expected the situation being what it is." In searching for the gold in the Glacial territories I have not discovered much in the dark mud, most is found in the region around an inch from the highest point of the mud. In searching for a decent spot while test panning, the dark sand is still the best pointer. The advantage to those Glaciers dumping their till on us is for those of us that call this home, we get the opportunity to search for gold without needing to keep running off to California or Alaska. In the event that you begin your gold prospecting enterprises with fine gold, you will turn into one of the best at recouping any sort of gold. When you can skillet the concentrate down and recoup the fine gold and Black attractive sand, simply envision how simple it will be for you when you get to a detect that has pieces that you can get with your fingers! -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Free Spooky Training!

The Sunrise Mine
Back in the late 1800s and early 1900s, prospecting for various ores led to a culture in mining and the emergence of mining towns. This included an old copper mine located in Platte County, Wyoming. While mining for copper was relatively short-lived at the Sunrise Mine, from 1880 until 1887, iron was discovered at the same site and at a time when the price was high enough to warranted mining. Colorado Fuel and Iron Co. began mining at the Sunrise mine in 1898 after a 10-year period of prospecting and exploration. It was common for a mining company to develop a town for its workers and in close proximity of the mine. This was the case for the town of Sunrise, Wyoming. But often these company towns did not include places where miners could “let loose.” With copper mining and then iron, the town of Hartville emerged in 1884, the oldest incorporated town in Wyoming. By the 1900s, there were nine saloons in the town of Hartville (Sunrise was a “dry” town) as well as other establishments for entertainment. During the Old West period, Hartville was the scene of multiple shootings. Many of the victims were cowboys buried at the town’s Boot Hill.

Geoff Nott and John Montgomery layout depicting a small narrow gauge line somewhere in the American forests serving both the logging and mining industries To see some amazing photos of this display best to follow this NMRA link. http://www.nmra.org.au/Layout_Tours/Charging%20Moose/index.html Goulburn (HO Scale) This Australian themed layout was constructed and run by the Gilford Model Railway Club. This highly detailed railway study is based on the Goulburn station and surrounding environments as it looks today. Locomotives and rolling stock are individually owned by the railway club members. The power was supplied by conventional DC block control. This layout was very popular as it's something that many people could relate to if they have travelled by rail to Goulburn. Hoyt-Clagwell Tractor Factory (On30 Scale) This tiny layout was one of the biggest surprises at the train show. It cleverly sucked you in via a question sheet related to the classic TV comedy show Green Acres. This layout used one of the most unusual ideas as a theme and the way it presented made you look into the layout. It goes to show that you don't need a huge highly detailed railway layout to entertain a audience. Hoyt-Clagwell Tractor Factory was amazing. Over The Fence (HO Scale) A railway layout based on the Newcastle area that's north of Sydney. It features typical Australian trains and rollingstock that are a common sight during the 80's to 90's. This layout was enclosed in a perspex tank that made clear viewing and photography near impossible. Sadly this really distracted from the beauty of the various trains. The only way I could see them clearly was when they were running around the rear of the layout. Children had little or no chance to engage with this layout due to the height it was set at and perspex tank that protected the layout from the viewing public. South Bend And Hilltop (N Scale) This American themed layout was totally amazing due to the number of trains and incredible details on the layout. Presented by the Hills model Railway Society this large layout can run both DC and DCC trains for it's members. The track design is a folded dogbone and the scenic layout incorporates innovative model making methods to reduce weight while remaining strong. As I so often say when N Scale is done well it's incredibly beautiful. This layout was a real joy to watch. Gordon (HO Scale) A layout thats depicting the Australian railway station at Gordon near the top of the Great Dividing Range. The Layout represents Gordon prior to the rationalization of the railways in Australia. Gordon was originally a terminus station on a branch line but eventually it was linked to Melbourne. The trains seen on the layout are from the 1950's to 1980's. Gordon is a little peek back in time to when Australia was a very different place Vs today. Back Of Beyond (N Scale) This beautiful layout represents a small country town somewhere in country NSW Australia. Because of Government decisions the railways have been rationalized so the goods shed and two branch lines lapse into ruin. The layout has lots of buildings done in a variety of methods. The designs in this layout is very common of of the many towns that have derelict railway infrastructure around active mainlines. It's a reminder of very different times seeing the ghosts railways. This layout is another excellent N Scale model. The model detailing's here are extreme. The track ballast even shows areas of loose sleepers. It's an amazing study of how the world looks in a tiny scale.

10 Harshest Uninhabitable Places on Earth
From impossible pools of sulfur, to gnarly volcanic wastelands, here are 10 Harshest Uninhabitable Places on Earth Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 10. Snake Island 9. Death Valley 8. Antipodes Islands 7. Minqin County, China 6. Litla Dimun 5. Australian Outback If you think you got what it take to survive in the harsh australian desert, then you dare you to try to live in the Australian outback for a few weeks on your own and see how it goes. The center of eastern australia, seems to completely lack resources unless you’re looking for snakes, toxic chemicals, or uranium. This is home to Lake Disappointment, which really doesn’t seem to inviting. Here in this photo we see a that was once used to store uranium, left in the outback. (What Photo?) So you really you shouldn’t get your hopes up about living here. The lake is rather salty and someone is probably disappointed :( Some people tried to settle in wittenoom Australia when an extremely large amount of blue asbestos was discovered.This however, didn’t turn out so great and didn’t know exactly how extremely toxic blue asbestos truly was. 4. Montserrat A small little island in the Caribbean would seem like a great place to inhabit with plenty of lush forests and black sand beaches. But the positive things about Montserrat seem to end there and it’s home to an extremely active volcano, making a majority of it completely uninhabitable! The capital city of Plymouth was completely destroyed after a volcanic eruption happened here and you can see the destruction for yourself on google maps! Other places like richmond hills to the north were abandoned shortly after. It’s certainly not a welcoming view, seeing a volcano steaming from gases relentlessly from the peak. Here in this photo from the 1990’s we see the capital of the British overseas territory, completely draped in ash. To this day, the area surrounding Soufriere Hills, is covered in sharp volcanic glass and not the fine white sands you’d prefer to see in the Caribbean. Very few have returned to the island after the eruption but they should be fearing for their lives. 3. Siberia (Pronounced Wrong) If you dare to venture off into the far east of Russia, you will come across some of the most brutal conditions on the face on the planet. The siberian winter is no joke folks and it has the power to turn you into a popsicle in a matter of hours. The population density of this massive chunk of land is about 3 inhabitants per kilometer making it the most sparsely populated region in the world and for good reason. You certainly do not want to end up in a work camp here!The green forests might seem inviting, but you can safely bet your money, they will completely covered in snow by the time october comes. Some villages manage to reach temperatures -67 degrees celsius or -89 degrees fahrenheit! If the extreme cold doesn’t get you, a bear most likely will! Some claim that the road that while constructing the M56 highway through siberia, it earned the nickname “the highway of bones” due to the sheer amount of lives lost from the frigid conditions here. 2. Danakil Depression We mentioned this place briefly in our most color places video but this is seriously not a place you want to move to! Ethiopia is already a difficult place to live and then you add places like Dallol to the mix and you wonder how anyone can actually survive here! With an average high of 121 degrees in July, people who come to this region just want to get a few things and get the heck out! There used to be a settlement in this location but it was abandoned after mining a few tons of salt.The landscapes of this place are like something from an entirely different world. The Dallol sulphur springs emit a horrendous odor and make up part of Ethiopia’s Danakil Depression. Possibly the lowest and hottest place on earth, the water below the earth is extremely salty, toxic and hot. You can probably make a trip here to check it out but don’t plan on staying long! 1 Antarctica Antarctica is the only continent on Earth that has no permanent residence and it’s completely uninhabitable. No towns, no cities, no commercial industries just a few scientific research stations were people some how manage to tough out the extremely harsh conditions for a few weeks then get the heck out! Here in this photo we see a few heavily vehicles left at Oasis Station originally built by the Soviets. If the Russians can’t handle the cold no one can, except for the penguins! Trying to establish any kind of base here is nearly impossible and there’s still equipment left over from those who dared settling on this continent. Not only is it cold, it’s also the the windiest place on earth on average. While there is some fresh water here, it’s all frozen or buried under miles of ice! Only 11 people have actually been born on antarctica but don’t expecting it to become permanently populated anytime soon.

Ancient mining town strikes the new gold
(9 Apr 2017) LEADIN: It's being hailed as the oil of the future and now lithium is about to transform the fortunes of a tiny ancient mining village in the Czech Republic. The metal is a key component for rechargeable batteries and is used in gadgets like mobile phones and tablets, but a huge surge in demand is on the horizon due to the rapid development of electric vehicles. STORYLINE: The small village of Cinovec, located on the Czech border with Germany, had a tin and later tungsten mining tradition dating back to 1378. It was abandoned in 1991 because it stopped being economically sustainable, but recent explorations have thrust it into the centre of a future boom by confirming a large deposit of lithium. The deposits here are considered the biggest on the European continent. It was known from the 1960s that lithium was here, but explorations didn't go ahead due to a lack of interest in the metal back then. The expected massive surge in demand for the metal - a key component in electric rechargeable batteries - means a revival of a centuries-long mining tradition in the northwestern Czech mountain range. The lightest of metals, it has a wide range of use from ceramics and greases to air treatment and medicine. But above all, it is a necessary part of rechargeable batteries. The predicted boom of electric cars and electric storage systems would be unlikely to happen without them. European Metals company (EMH) is listed on the London Stock Exchange and the Australian Securities Exchange in Sydney. Managing director Keith Coughlan says it is planning to open a mine at Cinovec in several years to produce at least 20,000 metric tons of lithium carbonate (about 3,800 tons of lithium) a year. That would put the country among the top five lithium makers in the world. "I believe it is a danger for Europe to continue to think that it can rely on Asia for its supply chain of battery related materials and in particular lithium. I think it is a very significant asset from a European perspective and I believe at some stage one of the major European end users will be interested in talking to us about supply from Cinovec," he says. "In terms of for how long (there could be a supply of lithium from the Cinovec mine), the study that we are currently doing plans on producing 20,000 tonnes per annum of lithium carbonate and the overall total resource is in excess of seven million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent. So as you can see, at that production rate there are many many years of production available from Cinovec," he adds. Czech company, Cinovecka Deponie has already secured all necessary permissions to extract lithium from a tailing, which is currently a sandy area with pines growing on it. Another company, Sanaka Industry, wants to do the same at a tailing in another area in the Ore Mountains near the town of Horni Slavkov. The spokesperson for both companies, Martin Frydl, underlines that despite growing demand, lithium isn't a guaranteed bet. "The industry can change, someone can come up with an invention for is instance, in the car industry, they would use hydrogen cells instead of lithium ones and so on. But at this time it looks like the lithium price is favourable, so the investment will be effective. But as any other investor we are working with some risk," he says. The tailings could yield a total of 7,500 metric tons of lithium with mining to start in next few years. Lithium can be found in brine deposits (Latin America), where most global reserves are believed to be, and in hard rocks (Australia, Czech Republic). Parts of the deposits here stretch to neighbouring Germany, where Canada's Baccanora company has been exploring it.
