Location and Description

The Colorado No. 1 mine is located on the northeastern slopes of Sioux peak, and was owned by the Colorado Mining Company. The mine contains the continuation of the Iron Blossom ore zone, with the shaft at an altitude of 7,137 feet and being 500 feet deep. East and west crosscuts were done on the 250 and 500 foot levels, but no ore was discovered along them, however the Iron Blossom ore zone is encountered on the 300 foot level.

Production

Total production values are for the Colorado Mining Company, which includes both the Colorado No. 1 mine, as well as the Colorado No. 2 mine. A total of 108,939 tons of ore were mined out between 1907 and 1913, and the ore contained 20,676.76 ounces of gold ($427,424); 4,889,832 ounces of silver ($2,708,976); 15,665 pounds of copper; and 48,171,127 pounds of Lead; all totaling to about $5,275,085.

Ore

The ore contained large amounts of cerussite as well as small amounts of galena. There was some small amounts of sphalerite along with the galena, however most of it was oxidized into smithsonite, as well as other oxidation products.
