In this video I visit the Goldome Mine and Mill, a modern abandoned mining facility in the Mojave desert.




The mill buildings have been badly vandalized. I had to use creative camera angles to minimize the extensive graffiti, and also retouched some shots. I refuse to give vandals the attention they crave.



This is the sixteenth in a series of videos from my 2019 trip, where I explored old mines, mining camps, ghost towns and other historic sites in Nevada and the Mojave desert.

Great job Ray! Very cool of you to use an effect to blur the graffiti material. I believe that Vanderbilt Gold Company was one of the last operators of the mine and mill. I think they broke their pick around 2000. Will you be making any more old mine trips this year or will you wait until spring?

Thanks. So far it doesn't look like I'll be able to make any trips before the end of the year, at least.
