buy paper map find cripple creek
35mm black and white film photo was taken near cripple creek co, this gold mine run by a south african company plows down a thousands of acre of forest every year, excavates down to bedrock and leaches the tailings with chemicals and create toxic mountains that they claim they will re-forest. This needs to stop. Colorado is being abused by mining and fracking operations at an alarming rate. County commissioners just voted to let this mine expand on federally owned land by you and me, mineral right law need to change or we will leave no forests for our grandkids to photograph.
Colorado should be deemed a national treasure and left to nature, find your stinking minerals elsewhere...
