Last year, I found myself wandering around the abandoned Rockefeller Mine and mining camp on an extremely windy afternoon. Talc was mined at the Rockefeller Mine, and the site is marked with…
Seems like someone had been using the site as a trash dump! Or they just
never bothered to haul away some of that stuff after the mine closed.
Be careful stirring up to much dust when there is mouse droppings on the
ground. Hantavirus is some serious shit that kills 38% of the people who
get it. I know its pretty common in the southern regions. Just a word of
advice is all for the future. Most likley these droppings were from
kangaroo rats hanta is carried from deer mice
Nice, talc mines are sketchy due to there flaky composition. Hope you were
and always wear a hard hat. Thanks for sharing
That was very interesting . Those old can piles might have some cans at the
bottom that are still good .
I don’t know how far out in the desert you were but someone must have hated
that washing machine so much they drove all the way out fhere in the desert
just to dump it.
How to cut way down on wind noise is by placing a piece of foam over the
camera mic, held in place by a couple of rubber bands.
What type of wood are the ore bins usualy made from?
Hey, its me! Nice video, now i really want to visit a mine like this too!!
You should have way more subscribers than you do, Frank.
Your content is awesome.
Considering the isolation, and what carpeting is often used for, I’d check
just to make sure there wasn’t a body. Serious …
Nice video man! Every time I see all of those timbers just sitting there, I
think of all of the cool things that I could make with that old-growth
timbering. Anything you made out of it would have a cool back story as
Another great walk.
I was hoping you’d have another vid up soon! Thanks Frank! Lots of
tailing piles on the hills in the background! More adits in the area?
looks like some squatters have stayed in that mine a few times, or just
campers who like to leave trash behind, shame they have to junk the place
Great video, Frank! That dragon was quite nifty, I thought. What do you
think of all those cans? That’s a lot of pork and beans, lol….or could
they actually have something to do with the mining industry? Odd…..
