Seniorita Gold Mine for Sale - Colorado - 2016
 
09:36
The Seniorita Mine is about 4 miles north of Ouray, Colorado. The claim has a large track coming from what appears to have once been a haulage tunnel. Piping and track indicate a large adit was once on site. The mine has not been worked in a long time, and there is little historical information available, but it is known to have been worked for gold as early as 1893 with various owners since.

Cripple Creek (2), Colorado, United States.
 
02:39
Cripple Creek, Colorado 2005 For many years Cripple Creek's high valley, at an elevation of 9,494 feet (2,894 m), was considered no more important than a cattle pasture. Many prospectors avoided the area after the Mount Pisgah hoax, a mini gold rush caused by salting (adding gold to worthless rock). On the 20th of October, 1890, Robert Miller "Bob" Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush began. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history. In three years, the population increased from five hundred to ten thousand by 1893. Although $500 million worth of gold ore was dug from Cripple Creek, Womack died penniless on 10 August 1909. In 1896 Cripple Creek suffered two disastrous fires. The first occurred on April 25 destroying half of the city including much of the business district. Four days later another fire destroyed much of the remaining half. The city was rebuilt in a period of a few months, most historic buildings today date back to 1896. By 1900, Cripple Creek and its sister city, Victor, were substantial mining communities. During the 1890s, many of the miners in the Cripple Creek area joined a miners' union, the Western Federation of Miners (WFM). A significant strike took place in 1894, marking one of the few times in history that a sitting governor called out the national guard to protect miners from anti-union violence by forces under the control of the mine owners. By 1903, the allegiance of the state government had shifted and Governor James Peabody sent the Colorado National Guard into Cripple Creek with the goal of destroying union power in the gold camps.[citation needed] The WFM strike of 1903 and the governor's response precipitated the Colorado Labor Wars, a struggle that took many lives. Through 2005, the Cripple Creek district produced about 23.5 million troy ounces (979 1/6 troy tons; 731 metric tons) of gold. The underground mines are mostly idle, except for a few small operations. There are significant underground deposits remaining which may become feasible to mine in the future. Large scale open pit mining and cyanide heap leach extraction of near-surface ore material, left behind by the old time miners as low grade, has taken place since 1994 east of Cripple Creek, near its sister city of Victor, Colorado. The current mining operation is conducted by Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V). The mine operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mine operations, maintenance, and processing departments work a rotating day/night schedule in 12-hour shifts. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows. Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs https://youtu.be/OTIxio8inD0 Cripple Creek Colorado 2005

Stony Pass Gold Mine - Lode Mining Claim for Sale - Colorado - 2016 - Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc.
 
01:33
The Stony Pass is a massive mine, surrounded by gorgeous Colorado landscape. The mine entrance is covered with snow, so it needs a bit of clearing before it can be accessed. There are two different ore piles on the claim, one containing higher grade gold ore, as well as a reclaimed shaft. The estimated total size of the underground is 800-1000 feet, but may be larger. There is a collapsed building on the claim, as well as about 75' of track extending from the mine entrance. This is a beautiful site, and judging by the great gold ore found in the tailings, it is a site with a lot of potential.

Eagle Mine Colorado
 
11:54
Eagle Mine was a Colorado silver mine founded in the 1880s which went on to become the the largest producer of Silver in Colorado. It shut down in the 1980s. The closure of the mine resulted in its eventual flooding, which in turn contaminated the groundwater and prompted the EPA to step in and order the evacuation of the nearby town. In this video we explore some of the remaining surface structures. NOTE: I apologize for the quality of this video. We hiked down the side of the cliff and ran out of water along the way. I was exhausted and the lens got dirty in the process. I've identified some changes I'll be implementing in upcoming videos regarding sound and video quality. Stay tuned.
