Description

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 129.

This five day field trip is a general overview of the geology and tectonic history of central Colorado and of the geology of seven famous mining districts. Some of these mining districts had their most productive years in the latter decades of the 19th century, whereas others reached their peak production more recently. At present mining activity in some of them has ceased. In others it is at low levels compared to earlier years.
