Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

I take my dog out for walks in one of Brooklyn’s oldest and biggest cemeteries. Short hills littered with graves and trees that spread out across hundreds of acres. She likes the scenic route which takes us near a grassy hill that’s filled with pieces of busted headstones half-buried in the ground. There are several moldy graves and crumbling mauthing. Sas well. It was there that I had stopped to tie my shoe and casually snap a photo of my dog. I was able to take two photographs before my phone’s battery drained completely.

So the following day I did the same thing. Same route, same time, same attempt to snap a picture. I got the same results. My battery drained within 2 or 3 pictures taken. It had drained from 100% to 0% (turned off completely) in a matter of seconds. So I tried it a third time and got the same results. At that point, I looked at my dog and told her that from now on we would be walking on the other side of the cemetery. No issues taking pictures on that side. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Right?

Those who aren’t chicken shit like me would love to investigate this phenomena a bit further. Like the guy that runs the YouTube channel Exploring Abandoned MinesFor almost a decade he’s been posting videos of his adventures into abandoned mines around the Nevada area. Amongst the extensive video list, there are two or three videos in which he managed to capture something eerie. Disembodied whispers, noises, and voices deep in the desert’s underground.

What makes these recordings creepy is the fact that this guy is not out there trying to collect evidence of ghosts. He’s out there (or down there) exploring mines.

Listen to the whispering in this video as the explorer ventures deep into the Waldeck Mine while attempting to give a review of his new flashlight. Starts at the 12:00 minute mark:

The indiscernible whispers are low but clear enough to let us know that it’s not wind nor an animal making them. If we take the explorer’s word on this, there is no hoax or audio effects in play. What you are listening to is raw audio from deep inside the Waldeck Mine.

Here’s a basic audio breakdown provided by another YouTuber:

  • villelai

    Quite interesting, especially when you consider that he isn’t a ghosthunter… have you contacted anyone to come and figure out the mine you have bumped into?

  • Linnet

    Re yellow rock – – google limonite; good info in Wikipedia article. It is sulfur in combination with other elements

  • schillmacguffin

    Certainly interesting. The explorer’s explanation of why he’s doing an uninterrupted video makes me suspicious — as if he’s “lampshading” the fact that this is unusual for him, but necessary to make the sounds into a convincing mystery. On the other hand, if this is a hoax, it’s a pretty subtle and carefully-staged one. Maybe he’s not shooting for fame and fortune — just looking for more views of his videos.

    Even aside from the mystery itself, I’m surprised that anyone would be exploring abandoned mines solo, in the middle of the night, during a storm. Is this his standard operating procedure? Are there others out there doing the same thing? If so, I think they’re nuts. Granted a spontaneous collapse of the whole tunnel would be unlikely, but it hardly seems impossible that he’d disturb something that would drop some heavy rocks and land him in a 127 Hours situation.

  • Les

    It could be the sound of water tricking through cracks with the sound echoing through the tunnel. I’ve heard similar sounds in old buildings.

  • Terricahd

    I enjoyed this video, it’s pretty creepy!

  • From my simple opinion i bilieve that the what you call paranormal or
    spirits experts thies days are far a way from the reality of the spirit
    world,they are mixing between things they red (or took it from
    traditional or cultural foloklor recources or from fairy tailes )and the
    reality behind the nature of thies entities,it is hard to meet one real
    human expert in paranormal field thies days,what they doing here is
    just manupolating (twisting)thier statments according to the event story
    they already knew fromthier victims,thier is nothing new they could add
    to this field or to the story in thier explination, and they fail to
    identifay the nature of the entity or its motives,first of all thier is
    nothing called human spirit(remember my words carfully) this is the most
    horrible mistake all human experts fall in to, thats whay they cant
    explaine whay or how could thies spirit do such horrible actions and
    start giving rong judgments or going around to prove the human spirit
    theory(and they can say what they feel and no one can prove the oppisit
    becz no one can see or touch paranormal activity) and this will lead for
    sure for big failer to heal or to get red of this entity beside that
    the victim will suffer more till he realize that he is dealing with some
    thing more evil and worst that just angry human spirit,thier is no
    human spirit coming back or stick in our world or lost the way back to
    heaven,actualy it is demonic entity,as a human you cant explaine some
    thing you cant see or touch and from here the problems start with
    hundrets of theories and lots of explinations, in fact this entities is
    kind of earthly demon and its name is Jinn,jinn can be verry clever in
    specific limits and can emitate living or dead person it can read your
    mind and feed on your fear,the Jinn follow specific steps befor it
    attack or show it self they follow levels befor reaching the red
    line,Jinn is not pure devil, i mean it is not from the devil race maybe
    similar in some aspects but not the same in its reaction and symptoms,
    the western cultur use the word demon as a generalising evry entity
    comes from the satan ,,,,,so the demon could be devil or satanic entity
    but this is also rong way of seeing things,in the old samatic languages
    there is more explination like shaytan= satan, devil=Eblis also the
    devil have an older angelic name wich it Azazeel ,so i guess demon
    should belong to the Jinn kind, jinn is not the devil though they match
    or meet in some elemints they are like cousins ,jinn have also different
    tribes and forms,i can know it from the haunting action or symptoms
    becz each jinn tribs or kind have in general special way of haunting,
    effects and influences changes according to the kind of the entity or
    kind of magic made against this or that human,also thier is the mixed
    race wich it is the result of pure satan mixed with pure jinn this kind
    could be agressive and evil as well,Jinn have kings and leaders like the
    stars ones ,but some earthly kind are lost alone and could try to inter
    the human dimension and could serve the devil policy of destroying the
    human race through magic or bad things or sicknes oe politics,many
    things humans do without knowledge could open this doors but with less
    knowledge about what we deeling with and with such egnorant paranormal
    experts and such lacking knowledge we would axpect more damage and less
    human effectivity against thies entities becz thies entitites using this
    situation to get stronger and more controll of its victims, actually i
    healed many cases from hard deseases like cancer or mantal problems or
    nervs illness and i found that thies demonic entitties was the reason,
    by using the right knowledge and the right wepon you can not just get
    red of the entity but also heal your body and soul, Jinn or Satanic
    entities can cause humans to bilieve what they want could also cause
    unreal events or dreams or create unreal reality ,and could play with
    your brain or cause you to do evil thing by controlling your thoughts
    specialy if this entity posses you, beside that we have few kinds of
    Jinn wich it lives among humans and could be sextualy motivated or more
    attached to humans emotions or cause specialy women sextual disorder,if
    you know the nature of the jinn you would understand whay im saying
    that,the jinn nature some how is low radiation waves of high or low
    electromignatic waves go through objects and bodies, paranormal experts
    and spiritual healers or gohst hunters should be verry carfull ,you
    could be hurted badly in different ways or possesed or mantaly
    influenced,it is long thema need alot of writing and discusions but if
    you need any edvice or assist or help im ready to help you in any
    possible way.
    One of the most famouse and evil demons exsisted since long time called ZOZO

    is a high level satanic demon , ZOZO has been linked to murders and
    suicides throughout the world. He comes through Ouija sessions under
    many names and begins working on the mental stability of its users
    searching I think for vulnerable victims.
    Ouija is his door to you please be carfull,for any assist just ask the right experts you trust.
    Demonic sexual assault,how to avaoid and to heal
    All what i saw and red about Succubus and inccubus is nearly the same and
    each paranormal expert give us his theory without he can prove it or show his info
    recources,and most of what called demonoligst or psychic
    or meduims or healers dont know more than 10% of what they are talking
    about and thier explinations could make the situation more wors even .
    Pepole think that by coppying books written from anyone or just reading one
    artickle from the net about demons will make them experts,but they are doing fatal mistake by spreading this fals knowledge .
    Thier is nothing called
    demon (succubos,incubos) in the way humans understand it, actualy we
    have the major devil ( Azazeel or satan) the father of all devils
    wich you humans in the west call them demons(from demonay in the old
    latinic culture)
    call him what ever you want he have different names, so devils are actualy
    the kids of the satan spiritualy ,they put them selves under his
    authority and they serve him and his goals,but the jinn exsisted
    him.most of them followed the satan after the seperation between him
    and God and they become evil jinn and evil jinn is similar to
    demons(they turn to demonic entitites) in many ways,and both the devils
    and the evil jinn (demons) glorify the devil for he being rebellion
    against God,Jinn are the
    cuisines of the satan in blood (in thier nature) but the satan have
    also his own sons from his own blood,and also thier is the mixed race between
    the satan kids and the evil jinn race,all this creat different types of devils and demons
    with different skills,but from the pure jinn type you can find some
    bilievers ,some jinn could be christian or muslims or even jew,the
    biliever type of djinn are the best from the wors but still they are
    if you miss with them or invite them they would hurt you, it depend how
    you deal with them,but they are still easier to get red of
    I can know the type of the entity from its symptoms
    and actions it cause, any way,the bilievers type are not under the law of the the
    and have different kind of needs and motivations ,,,,,,,,,,so they need
    different way of cleansing,going back for our subject,evry demonic
    entity (mixed kind or pure devil) could be seducer and
    could misuse your emotions or lust to attack mantaly or sexualy his victim.
    could feel and smell human wishes or needs or thoughts or memories
    specialy if the person are lonly,weak,sad or unprotected spiritualy.
    Demons generaly go through stages or steps of possesion,it let you first go more deeper in to your lust or sadness or fear
    till you cant controll it, or it could appear as a sexy dreams if he want to posses you or controll your emotions or he
    might assault you in your dreams as in nightmares ,he might make it good in the bigining so you open your
    more for it ,to enjoy it more to trust him more or to enjoy your
    emotions more so he will controll you more stronger mantaly and
    emotionaly and then break or controll your will, and this will make him
    more demanding and more possesive.
    The process well go through steps till he reach in the end to the compleat
    or jinn cant show or posses just easly or suddenly they need alot of
    energy to enter human dimension or body so dont ignore the signes.
    Humans in general cant know the differences so they dont take
    seriously till they realise that thier is some thing realy rong but it
    could be too late,some times the entity could stay in the middle stage
    by causing just mantal or health damage if the person was fighting it
    with the right wepons
    but this also could be dangerouse becz in the
    long term it well under such stressand presure you are doing the job
    alone for him,thier is no
    basic low to follow ,you cant predict his steps or symptoms,demonic
    possesion symptoms could be similar to some mantal or psychological
    illnes thierfor this make it more hard to discover it earlier,also ,,evil
    have different ways of possesing or approaching,it depend on the
    motivation and the person mantal strength or habits,but in many cases we
    can see on the possesed person,nighmares,bruises,pain
    in head or scratches in the lower part,sadness, uncertaine feeling,not happy with
    partner,strong thoughts about sex,or bloody images,,,,, even cancer or hormonic
    sicknes can be caused by the evil entity (radiation nature)
    Im getting alot of massages around the world specially from the states about demonic symptoms.
    Most pepole are afraid to talk about it directly and try rong ways
    to solve it wich make it wors,possesed person should be strong and
    stable and seriouse about it.
    The war between humans and Evil is overlasting and he is winning.
    Im happy to offer my edvice and help for you all

  • Christie Webb

    Sounds like chanting to me. Listening closer I could hear “Faster…faster” Idk…very interesting and definitely creepy whatever it is.

  • Dingus

    That isn’t necessarily a ghost or wind, an alternative explanation could be some cryptoid, such as a group of cloaked Reptoids (they apparently live underground).


    i had replayed the audio over and over while listening to it with headphones on, i have concluded from reading all the comments and my own experience, everyone hears something different which is far more creepy than the actual whispers, i heard a different language all together

  • Vivian Li

    How can we be absolutely sure that the audio wasn’t edited/falsified in any way, or recorded and added on after-the-fact? This Youtuber has indeed been known to create hoaxes here and there – the swinging chains in the mine shaft in one of his videos, for example (which could not have moved on their own that drastically, and at the same time the camera panned away). I’m skeptical.
