Join me as I spend 12 hours mining inside Cerro Gordo's Union Mine!

The miners back in the day would get paid $3/day for an above ground shift and $4 a day for an underground shift. A day would be a 12 hour shift.

So in this video, I'm going to do the same amount of time down in the mine, and see how I do!

You can see all the listings for the minerals here: https://www.ebay.com/usr/cerrogordo1865

The current total for the 12 hours = $170.

Thank you all so much for your support and subscribing!
