We found 8 pair of jeans from the 1800s in an abandoned mine in Arizona at Castle Dome Mine down an old shaft unexplored since the 1800s. The jeans were kept by the mine owner. They are supposed to be put on display at the museum. 3 pair were Levis Strauss the rest were Stonghold, Triumph and Pacifico. There are estimated to be about 100 pair of 1800 Levis in the world. They are prized by collectors especially in Japan. Brit Eaton went back to try to find more and examined the jeans, he really knows old denim!
We’ve explored hundreds of abandoned mines in Canada the United States and Mexico, going places nobody else would dare to go! A New video is produced every Friday, check us out here:
We do this for two main reasons:
1) Documenting the mines for future generations.
2) Collecting artifacts for our museum.
Mines are being filled in, demolished, and/or collapsing at an alarming rate, so it is crucial to document them and save these artifacts while it is still possible.
Join us for our weekly adventures as we go deep underground into historic abandoned hard rock Gold, Silver and Copper mines. We relive the Prospecting, Gold Rush days, going back in history with every expedition. Visiting abandoned and forgotten places, climbing down mine shafts into dangerous mines, finding treasures, seeing antique heavy equipment such as ore carts, crushers, milling machines, ball mills, explosives and other mining equipment.
This isn’t Minecraft but the real deal!
