We had the honor and pleasure of being one of only two paranormal teams allowed to investigate the Argonaut Mine.

Located in a residential area in Jackson CA it was one of the worst mining disasters in United State history. In 1922 a fire ripped through the mine killing 47 miners in it’s path. It took 2 1/2 days to put out the fire and 22 days to recover the bodies. Many of the bodies were removed through the adjacent Kennedy mine, a long time competitor. There were connecting tunnels which ran between the mines that had been closed in 1919 due to a previous fire.

PCSW team will be doing a private investigation at the Kennedy Mine in September 2019. We were given exclusive access in 2013 to the Argonaut Mine being the only private paranormal team to investigate the mine site where 47 men lost their lives. We look forward to sharing our evidence with you once it has been reviewed. Please check in for updates.
