    The rehabbed lower workings were interesting, but at the top of the raise, we’re getting into some really interesting sections of this abandoned mine... These “interesting sections” start right out with the discovery of an LHD (Load-Haul-Dump) seemingly forgotten underground. I was absolutely staggered to discover it there as I certainly did not expect to see such a large piece of machinery at the top of a raise that was not much bigger than I am. I believe this LHD was brought underground by a mining company that operated this mine up until the 1990s. The small workshop near the LHD and the rehab work in this part of the mine seem to date to around this time as well. On a separate trip, we were exploring around some old bunkhouses and a modern workshop on the surface (locked up or I would...

Diamond Mining - How are diamonds mined and formed? Documentary Film In mineralogy, diamond is a metastable allotrope of carbon, where the carbon atoms are organized in a variation of the face-centered cubic crystal structure called a diamond lattice. Ruby is less secure than graphite, yet the conversion rate from ruby to graphite is negligible at typical problems. Diamond is renowned as a material with outstanding physical high qualities, the majority of which stem from the strong covalent bonding between its atoms. Specifically, ruby has the highest solidity and thermal conductivity of any type of mass material. Those properties figure out the major industrial application of diamond in cutting and polishing tools and the scientific applications in diamond blades and ruby anvil cells. As a result of its exceptionally stiff lattice, it could be polluted by really few kinds of contaminations, such as boron and nitrogen. Percentages of defects or impurities (concerning one per million of lattice atoms) shade ruby blue (boron), yellow (nitrogen), brownish (lattice problems), environment-friendly (radiation direct exposure), purple, pink, red or orange. Diamond also has reasonably high optical dispersion (ability to disperse light of various colors).

TOP 7 Countries With The Most Diamonds Found 7. Angola Earning the 7th spot on the list is Angola. It is known for its vast wildlife and natural resources. This country’s economy suffered greatly during the Angolan Civil War but it began to recover in 2002. Angola is rich in subsoil heritage where its diamond reserves are found. This African country gets most of its revenues in diamond and oil production which generates 60% of Angola’s income. 6. Canada It may seem surprising to many but Canada stands in 6th place, breaking the streak of the African countries. It has a mixed economy and is one of the world’s top trading countries. Canada produces $1.47 billion worth of diamonds in the world and its revenue and economy also depends on the diamond mining industry. Previously, it seems that diamond is rarely found in temperate countries. That claim, however, was proven wrong. 5. South Africa South Africa takes the 5th spot on the list of the top 10 countries with most diamonds found. This country is one of the most-visited countries in the world because of its many beautiful and breathtaking places. Diamonds are plentiful in this country. The world’s largest diamond was also found in South Africa. Much of its revenue and economy depend on the production of diamonds. 4. Australia Another country with the most diamonds found is Australia. It is one the wealthiest countries in the world thanks to its export industry, which consists of agricultural products, specifically wool and wheat, minerals, and energy. It is internationally recognized as one of the countries rich in natural resources like coal, iron ore, gold and, of course, diamond. Australia provides 13% of diamonds in the world market. 3. The Democratic Republic of Congo Standing 3rd on the top 10 list is the Democratic Republic of Congo. The people in this country are one of the poorest in the world. However, this country is highly rich in natural resources and among these are diamonds. The Democratic Republic of Congo may be small in size, but it has plenty of diamond reserves and contributes 19% of the world’s diamond production. The country relies heavily on mining, which sometimes triggers massive conflict in the country. 2. Botswana Next to Congo, the country with the most diamonds found is Botswana. The country’s largest diamond mining company is 50% owned by the government. The mining industry provides 40% of the country’s revenue and accounts for 20% of the global diamond supply. 1. Russia Finally, 1st place goes to a non-African country, Russia. This revelation may take most people by surprise, since African countries have been dominating the top spots for quite a long time. The country is highly rich in natural resources because of its geographical location and its petroleum industry is one of the biggest in the world. Its economy likewise improved due to its diamond mining industry, apart from the Russia’s oil and gas exports. Russia contributes about 22% of the world’s diamond supply. ===================== diamond nation diamond world diamond source diamond productions biggest diamond in the world largest diamond in the world where are diamonds found diamond mines in africa diamonds in africa where to find diamonds which is the best country in the world how are diamonds mined area of a diamond best diamonds in the world largest producer of diamond ===================== Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/Mega-News-1728374423845386/ Twitter ► https://twitter.com/meganews77 Google+ ► https://plus.google.com/113281215443356264322 Tumblr ► https://meganews77.tumblr.com/ Pinterest ► https://pinterest.com/meganews77/ Reddit ► https://www.reddit.com/user/MegaNews77/ Linkedin ► https://www.linkedin.com/in/mega-news-858b93137 LiveJournal ► http://meganews77.livejournal.com/ Please Like & Subscribe Mega News https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0P4_2nrwEMw2A1TCsfQYdg https://youtu.be/qUHybhhzYvs

Now this Diamond mine is inactive, while it was operational it was taking two hours for trucks to drive from the top to the bottom of the mine. The diamond-bearing deposit was discovered on June 13, 1955 by Soviet geologists Yuri Khabardin, Ekaterina Elagina and Viktor Avdeenko during the large Amakinsky Expedition in Yakut ASSR. They found traces of volcanic rock kimberlite which are usually associated with diamonds. This finding was the first success in the search for kimberlite in Russia, after numerous failed expeditions of the 1940s and 1950s. For this discovery, in 1957 Khabardin was given the Lenin Prize, which was one of the highest awards in the Soviet Union. The development of the mine had started in 1957 in extremely harsh climate conditions. Seven months of winter per year froze the ground, which made it hard to mine in the winter, but turned into sludge in summer. Buildings had to be raised on piles, so that they would not sink in summer, and the main processing plant had to be built on a better ground found 20 km away from the mine. The winter temperatures were so low that car tires and steel would shatter and oil would freeze. During the winter, the workers used jet engines to thaw and dig out the permafrost or blasted it with dynamite to get access to the underlying kimberlite. The entire mine had to be covered at night to prevent the machinery from freezing.

Well that’s kind of what happened to mineral dealer Morgan Sonsthagen. Sonsthagen was attending the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show when he came across a table using a beautiful pinkish-orange rock as a paperweight. Diamond in the Rough During a dig in Russia’s Udachnaya diamond mine, miners discovered a rock with two unusual characteristics - a red and green hue and, oh, 30,000 miniature diamonds. Since the diamonds were so small, they couldn’t be made into jewelry, but the team donated it to science to see if someone could unearth how this rare stone came to be. Finders Keepers America hosts a few mining sites where amateur miners and tourists can search for precious gems. That’s just what Bobbie Oskarson did one day. Originating from Longmont, Colorado, this tourist took a trip to Arkansas, home of the Crater of Diamonds State Park. Turning Rocks into Riches One family of diggers turned their fun hobby into mind-blowing headlines. W. Renn Adams’s family took up the hobby of digging on the family farm to look for interesting, and hopefully valuable, gemstones. The hobby even turned into a business when the family charged the public to dig by hand in the 70s and 80s. After retiring, Adams continued the tradition, but like the generations before, he never found anything with real value. Historic Eruption While this next gemstone is not a huge money-maker due to its rarity, its unique discovery lead to the creation of a large niche in the gemstone market. Volcanoes are infamous for the damage they cause, but a volcanic eruption is what lead to the discovery of one of the most beautiful gemstones ever found. Mount St. Helens, located in Skamania County, Washington, was said to be a dormant volcano where tourists and locals like gather to gawk at its beauty. Big Beauty While the last five treasures we discussed were impressive, we’ve saved the best for last. Just this past October, the mother of all finds was unearthed in Burma. A team of government-employed Burmese miners were working in a mine in Kachin State and simply doing what miners do, searching for precious, valuable gemstones to bring to the man. That’s when they stumbled across a monster of a stone, which turned out to be a nearly 200-ton, 14-foot-high-by-19-foot-long beautiful jade boulder.

The rehabbed lower workings were interesting, but at the top of the raise, we’re getting into some really interesting sections of this abandoned mine... These “interesting sections” start right out with the discovery of an LHD (Load-Haul-Dump) seemingly forgotten underground. I was absolutely staggered to discover it there as I certainly did not expect to see such a large piece of machinery at the top of a raise that was not much bigger than I am. I believe this LHD was brought underground by a mining company that operated this mine up until the 1990s. The small workshop near the LHD and the rehab work in this part of the mine seem to date to around this time as well. On a separate trip, we were exploring around some old bunkhouses and a modern workshop on the surface (locked up or I would have included it in a video) at a separate location to those featured in the first video (but still connected to the mine) and I found the remains of a large collapsed adit that was almost completely obscured by brush. The brush and the adit appeared to be about twenty years old and the proximity to the modern workshop makes me believe that this is where they drove the LHD down from. Also, the location of the surface buildings seemed to correspond roughly to where I thought we were situated underground. Although, of course, it is possible that they brought the LHD up the raise in pieces. You’ll notice that I leave one branch of the upper workings unexplored. That branch was far, far more significant than I realized at the time, but don’t worry, in the next video I will start heading toward that unexplored section starting from the other side of the mine (literally miles away from where we went in from this side) and I will eventually connect up with where I left off there. As promised, on the way out, I hit the fork that went off to the left and I go up the wooden ladder to the levels above. The raise that was off of the left fork was in the process of being rehabbed as you can see from the recent activity, but I don’t know what the miner’s plan was for this raise. I didn’t see that it ran into the ancient river channel and so it may have been some sort of emergency escape passage or it may have run into the channel higher up and I just didn’t see it. Either way, it seemed like an unfinished project. The levels I hit by following the wooden ladder up were obviously quite old as indicated by the collapses and rotted timbers up there (and may even have been part of another mine). However, the wood in the ladder and in the proximity of the grizzly was new though and so there had been some recent rehab work done in this section. I didn’t see any sign of actual mining though (although I don’t know what was on the other side of that wooden platform that was above me). ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, guess what? We have fun doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a hundred years, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring
