LEADVILLE MINING DISTRICT
This district was once the most productive silver mining area in the state.
Historically, it produced over 240 million troy ounces of silver, three million troy ounces of gold, 987 million tonnes of lead, 712 million tonnes of zinc, and 48 tonnes of copper.
Along the way, you’ll also experience breathtaking views and photo opportunities of the Sawatch Mountain Range, the Collegiate Peaks (Named after Ivy League Schools).
The three tallest mountains in the Rockies will be visible: Mount Elbert, Mount Massive and Mount Harvard as well as many other peaks that tower over 14,000 feet of elevation.
Interested in ghost towns? The tour will make a stop in Oro City in California Gulch.
This town, settled during the Pike’s Peak gold rush, was the site of one of the richest placer (mining of alluvial deposits) gold strikes in Colorado’s history.
The city reached a peak population of over ten thousand people in July of 1860 and produced an estimated 150,000 troy ounces of gold.
The population dwindled rapidly once the mining rush was over, leaving only about 200 people only thirty years later.
