Local Geologist and Historian featured at CC&V’s Mine Shots


Saturday, Oct. 18

Local Geologist and Historian featured at CC&V’s Mine Shots. As a descendent of Cripple Creek, Colorado Miners, Steven Veatch, is passionate about the District! He’s also a published geologist and historian – recognized for his academic contributions. Combine these two qualities, and Steve can tell a story that will thrill and educate an audience at the same time! Join us on Saturday, October 18, 10 am to explore how a geologic survey, conducted in 1894, created the foundation on which Cripple Creek miners made millions. Have you heard the name Penrose? Does it make you think about big business, philanthropy, or the Broadmoor Hotel?  Then come to hear this presentation: “Cripple Creek’s Foundation of Fortune: The 1894 Cross and Penrose Geological Survey,” and you’ll learn how that name became famous in the “World’s Greatest Gold Camp.”  The presentation, entitled “Cripple Creek’s Foundation of Fortune,” is sponsored by the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V), and is free and open to the public. It is part of CC&V’s “Mine Shots” series. After the presentation, CC&V will pay admission for a visit to the Cripple Creek District Museum to see their Cross-Penrose Rock Collection. The location for this presentation is CC&V’s Visitors Center at 371 E. Bennett, Ave. But seating is limited, so RSVP today to: 719-689-2341
