Ghost Mine – Ghosts of the Geiser Grand – S02E05
For this episode of Ghost Mine, we have a whole lot of little evidence coming together that may all be related to the mine and how the Chinese immigrants were treated, or more to the point, mistreated as they worked in the mines. At least that seems to be the road we’re following for right now.
The focus is on the Geiser Grand Hotel, a prominent building during the gold rush. Land deals, mining deals, lumber and railroad deals were all made here. As with any mining town there was plenty of gambling as well and mines would have been won or lost on a game or cards.
Oddly, the Geiser Hotel is said to have it’s own paranormal events. And just as odd, there are tunnels down in the basement that would have been used by the Chinese workers so they could travel back to Chinatown. Why did they have to travel this way? Chinatown was open at sunrise and closed at sunset. Outside of those times, Chinese wouldn’t be allowed to walk the streets.
With all that in mind, Kristen and Patrick set about their investigation and when asked if the Crescent Mine was used by the Masons as a lodge, a glass tumbles off the shelf. Maybe tumble isn’t the right word, it might have been thrown. It doesn’t just land on the ground right in front of the shelf, but a few feet away. And when listening to the recordings, there appears to be a voice right before the glass hits.
Additionally, when Kristen asks, "Did something bad happen up there?" in regards to the Crescent Mine, she gets a response of "Yes".
While in the basement, they also get a motion sensor going off and the sound of someone tapping on glass. Up in the main dining room, they get the sound of chairs creaking and perhaps a slight shuffling sound as Patrick pulls out a deck of cards and some money. There are also spikes in the EVP, minor but spikes non the less, as they try to get a game started.
Aside from the investigation, the mine owner Larry has brought in a security guard to monitor the place since they feel a trespasser is wrecking the equipment and possibly causing damage to the mine. This new security guard also sees a trespasser and says he’s head right toward the camp where Patrick, Kristen and Stan are waiting. No one ever appears.
Patrick and Kristen then investigate and feel they may have captured a shadow figure in the woods. They’ve also made the claim they feel the old broken structure they stumbled on might be a burn house and there might still be bodies buried in the area. They can’t say for sure, but there is a possibility.
Lots of odd things are coming together with tons of strange noises like the rocks falling, the bangs against the cabin as they all talk about the evidence, some trespassing figure they can never catch and voices that show up on the audio. Seems like Patrick and Kristen either need to lean some Chinese or get someone who speaks the native language so perhaps they can bridge this language barrier. If there is a supernatural cause to these events, they might have better luck asking the miners in their native language.
