Mines in Colorado.


These are mine locations from the USGS Mineral Resources Data System. The graphic here is a Print Screen created from the live, zoomable image of the entire state of Colorado.

The map is produced in a Geographic Information System (GIS) application. Linked to each point there are data, including names and information for 1014 mines in Boulder County.

This resource comes to us from a long-time resident of the mountains, compliments of Facebook. Mike Shaw has lived in the Nederland area for most of his life, knows the area, knows the people.

These data will be useful in documenting the activities of the industrial revolution that seized the area in the late 19th and early 20 centuries.
