" The Discovery, Development, & Demise of Wyoming’s Atlantic City Iron Mine Presented by Chuck Dah
 
01:08:07
There is a large hole in the ground high atop South Pass, Wyoming – a hole which has an important and most interesting story; and Jackson is fortunate to have someone intimately involved with that “hole”, who is able to tell the story behind it. The story of Wyoming’s Atlantic City iron ore mine, atop South Pass, is one that grew out of the consequences of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. As a result of an immediate need for steel, the U.S. government built a fully integrated steel plant at Provo, Utah where all the needed raw materials were located within the state or nearby. The steel plant was operated as a government facility until June, 1946 when it was sold to U.S. Steel Corporation. By the early 1950’s the quality and quantity of the iron ore deposits in Utah were diminishing and there was a need to discover and develop a new iron ore source to supply the plant. In June, 1953, U.S. Steel hired Dr. Paul Procter (head of the geology department, Missouri School of Mines) and Chuck Dahl, who was his field assistant, to search for a deposit of taconite iron formation in southern Wyoming. By August of that year they had worked westward to the south end of the Wind River Mountains. Long time Jackson resident, Chuck Dahl, will tell the story of the discovery that he was intimately involved with, and the subsequent development and demise of the Atlantic City iron ore mine at South Pass, Wyoming.

Learn more about Cat Shearers: https://mining.cat.com/shearers Trona is a sodium carbonate compound that is processed into soda ash or bicarbonate of soda. Wyoming has the world's largest deposit of trona, supplying about 90% of the United States' soda ash. Glassmaking consumes about half of the soda ash, followed by the chemical industry, which uses about a quarter of the output. Other uses include soap, paper manufacturing, and water treatment. All baking soda also comes from soda ash. (Source: Wyoming Mining Association)

Atlantic City Pub, Wyoming, United States
 
02:45
Pub in Atlantic City, Wyoming, USA 2005 - ghost town Atlantic City is a census-designated place (CDP) in Fremont County, Wyoming, United States. The population was 37 at the 2010 census. The community is a small mining settlement in a gulch near South Pass in southwestern Wyoming. It was founded as a mining camp following the 1867 gold rush in the region. The town declined following the end of the placer gold rush in the early 1870s, but continued to exist as advances in mining technology allowed further extraction of gold. From the 1960s until 1983, it was the location of US Steel iron ore mine. The town is accessible by gravel roads from nearby Wyoming Highway 28. The town today has rustic flavor, with a small cluster of residences and the preserved Atlantic City Mercantile store and restaurant along the main road through town. It attracts a small number of tourists in the summer as well. https://youtu.be/00p4k5ojnps Atlantic City Pub, Wyoming

The Sunrise Mine
 
04:01
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.

Iron Ore on the Rio Grande
 
24:31
Iron ore was mined in Southern Utah and South-Central Wyoming for the blast furnaces in Provo, UT and Pueblo, CO. The Utah ore was sometimes taken to Pueblo by the Rio Grande, after interchanging with the Union Pacific at Provo. The density of iron ore is such that only partial loading in most standard hoppers is maximum tonnage, with the exception being the short 70 ton ore jennies built for iron ore service. In contrast to the natural shipping ore (65% iron) that is the dark red associated with Great Lakes iron ore, the intermountain west iron deposits were un-weathered banded-iron deposits, gray in color, and lower iron concentrations. The Atlantic City mine in Wyoming was one of the first to pelletize the ore after enrichment, to reduce the amount of waste tonnage shipped. My research on iron ore movements on the Rio Grande has led me to the point which is shown here: blocks of iron ore carloads that moved in general manifest trains. This train has some of its remaining tonnage filled with empties headed back to the coal mining regions of Western Colorado and Central Utah. Also, by the late 1960s, the first generation diesels were becoming long in the tooth, and were bumped from higher priority trains by the GP30s & GP35s, with most of the F units ending their service lives in helper service or slower freight service by the early 1970s. Some of the GP9s depicted here lasted into the early 1990s.

California Gold Mine "For Sale" Cherry Hill Mine
 
04:57
There’s Gold In Them Hills! The Right Time for an Informed Investor! CALIFORNIA GOLD MINE “ For Sale “ ___Cherry Hill Mine___ The Cherry Hill Mine: Established in 1892, a formerly producing, small underground high-grade gold mine. One of the benefits of purchasing a past-producing mine is that the cost of moving into production is much lower than the cost of bringing a mine from the exploration phase to the production phase. Location: When thinking of mines you tend to visualize a hard-to-reach, remote, backcountry hillsides that require vast amounts of money to ensure adequate infrastructure. That isn’t the case with Cherry Hill. Because Cherry Hill is a formerly producing mine, all the infrastructure is already there. That means you have a leg up on some of the costs involved with getting the mine up and running. The mine is just a short ride from the town of Yreka, California, down a state-operated, paved road that turns into a well-maintained gravel road. It's easy to get to and has great access to the I-5, a major artery running north-south along the West Coast. It also means that when you do ramp up production, the heavy-duty trucks won't have much of an issue getting the ore from the mine to the mill. Historical Geological Reports: 1892 0.97 oz Au/ton with Ore running at $20.00 Au/ton (Yreka Journal, 11/16/1892). In 1892 100 tons milled by Selby avg. $61.00/ton (3oz Au equivalent/ton) (Yreka Journal 12/7/1892). On July 24th 1900 the mill run produced $5,300. (254.4 oz Au; 10.7 oz/day; 10 tons/day at 1 oz Au/ton Mining and Scientific Press 7/14/1900). 2003 Core Drilling produced 25' of 1.024 oz Au/ton - 30' of 4.758 oz Au/ton and 39.5 oz Ag/ton. Historical Resource Estimate by R. L Hill, CA Reg.Geologist #3386, Jan 5, 2009. Primary Target - Queen Vein WQ #3 and WQ #4 levels at 8889 yrds³ = 20,000 short tons at 1 opt at $1200 worth $24,000,000. Level 2 - WQ #4 to Camp Level at 9778 yrds³ = 22,000 short tons at 1 opt at $1,200 worth $26,400,000. Camp Level to Long Tunnel Adit approx 300,000 oz...previous owner estimation. 42,000 tons blocked out - based on established mine plan. 43-101 independent Technical Report completed May 22nd, 2012. Between 2011 - 2013 approx $2.6 million spent on exploration and development mining (all figures verified by audit). Low cost producer - estimated cost per oz Au at $400. Metallurgy testing (Norris Labs of Montana) indicates 95% recoveries for gold and 87% for silver. 80% of recoverable ore from gravity. Eight known adits on 7 unpatented lode claims situated on 94.6 Acres. Multiple assays completed with underground surveys. Defining a resource is a big expense for exploration companies, costing millions of dollars to complete. In purchasing a previously producing mine, You will have forgone the costly resource definition process because, “this was all done, we know what's here, so just go mine it!” Price $1,295,000 - Will consider all reasonable offers For the opportunity to discuss the mines in further detail, please contact: Philip Physioc [email protected] or (702) 822-0237

United States Steel (ex- B&LE) F7 No. 724 near South Pass City, Wyoming -- with calf
 
03:40
I had heard that this iron ore railroad was closing down operations sometime around 1983, so I marked it as one of the places I wanted to visit on my vacation in September of that year. I was disappointed that I did not catch an ore train -- I don't even know if any were still running by then -- but what happened at the end of this video with the encounter with a single calf made it worth the trip. Apparently this calf not only thought the grass was greener on the other side . . . of the tracks, but was willing to risk his life and make a last second dash for it. After all, who knows when another opportunity may come along. There are a lot of automobile drivers out there who must think the same thing, unfortunately.

The Abandoned Ghost Town of Hecla Wyoming (maybe)
 
22:00
Hecla, Wyoming; an incredibly short-lived base of operations for three mines that bared the town's name. As well as a mining outpost, Hecla was also a candidate for a Union Pacific rail-stop, but unfortunately for Hecla and its population consisting of only miners and their wives, it never gained enough attention. As the mines closed due to lack of outsider commercial interest, Hecla's population dwindled down to a fat zero. Following the Civil War, a need for copper developed. During the period Between 1867 and 1884, the Calumet & Hecla Mining Company of Michigan produced half of the country's copper. Between 1889 and 1900, the Company paid out $57 million in dividends. Thus, there developed a copper rush to areas in which copper deposits might be found. One of those areas was Happy Jack. In 1879, with the discover of copper and gold along Upper Crow Creek, the Silver Crown Mining District was formed. Beginning in the 1880's a series of mines opened in the District. Mines included the Hecla Mines, owned by the Hecla Copper & Golf Mining, Milling & Smelting Co.; the Lenox; the Julia Lode; the Agata Prospect, which produced gold; the two Arizona Mines; the Barlett Copper King; the Fairview; the Great Standard Group owned by the Great Standard Copper Mining Co.; the Kopper Krown Mines; the London; and the Louise.  Tailing Dump, Strong Copper Mining Company, Upper Horse Creek, 1906. The Strong Copper Mining Company was organized in 1903 and was capitalized at $1,000,000. The mine used an 80 h.p. steam hoisting plant. By 1908, the mine was idle. William Ferguson opened the King David Mines (later known as the Comstocks) about 1 1/2 miles northwest of Hecla and established a smelter. Most of the mines were centered on Granite Canyon or in an area along Middle Crow Creek south of present day Happy Jack Road.  Smelter, Hecla, Wyoming, undated. Photo courtesy Ferguson Archives. The stamping mill was constructed by the Adams Copper Mining and Reduction Co. It was later sold to the Hecla Copper & Gold Mining & Smelting Co. The company owned some 14 claims, the townsite of Hecla, a millsite, a smelter, concentrating and leeching play, assay lab and office building. In 1904, the company changed its name to the Hecla Mining Co. The company subsequently changed its name again to the Hecla Consolidated Mines Co. Although, there may have been some spectactular finds of native gold, on an average the ore in the area only assays at about 0.02 ounces of gold per ton and the copper at only 0.2%. The larger outside companies had financial difficulties. By 1906 The Great Standard Copper Mining Co. was broke notwithstanding its touting of the discovery of platinum deposits.  This is the general area i researched Hecla to be in. However i would expect to see mining equipment rusting away, and only building foundations left. I found the opposite here. I will try to do some more research and exploring to see if this actually is Hecla and attempt to find the remains of the mine. My Patreon is up! https://www.patreon.com/chrishaefner?alert=2
