Arizona Gold Mine

This old abandoned gold mine was just outside of Yuma Arizona not far from the Colorado River. 

It’s obvious that the old-timers were following a quartz vein that was carrying the gold. Dry washing the mine tailings show that this was a very rich mine. Even dry washing in the general area produced some very fine gold dust. From poison gas, unseen drop offs, wild animals and rattlesnakes, I would never advise anyone to go into one of these old abandoned gold mines

I won’t give away the exact location, but if you know the area well, you could probably figure it out. 

Prospecting and sampling old mining claims and dump piles for gold values that may have been overlooked when the price of gold was lower. Bulk testing and sampling gold ore is an important part of gold mining feasibility and profitability, but is often overlooked.

There are numerous abandoned mines throughout the western U.S. and many are an accident waiting to happen. If you find an abandoned mine, stay away and keep yourself safe.

What a hard job those miner had, digging out rock, hauling it out, bringing support timber and equipment back down all in a dark, dirty and very dangerous environment. Those minerals must have been worth a lot for all that effort.

Some who explore old gold mines carry 2 self rescue bottles and a gas/O2 monitor when EVER they go underground, along with extra helmet light and batteries, water, ECT. People MUST understand an old mine is not safe. a Rock fall is over in the blink of an eye, there is not a little sprinkle of rock to warn you so you can make a (Indiana Jones ) style escape, if you’re on the wrong side of the junk pile(providing ya ain’t under it) if you are by YOURSELF you are screwed. NEVER GO ALONE! ALWAYS HAVE SOMEONE ON TOP TO ORGANIZE HELP/RESCUE. STAY OUT, STAY ALIVE, AND STAY SAFE OUT THERE!!!
