Newmont CC&V Breaks Ground on Public Overlook of Modern Mining Operation!

Exciting News! Work has begun on a new overlook that will provide the general public with access to a spectacular view of Newmont Mining Corporation's large scale, high-tech modern gold mining operations at the Cripple Creek & Victor (CC&V) Gold Mine.
Located just north of CC&V's active Wild Horse Extension Surface mine on Teller County Road (TCR) 82 (between Colorado Highway 67 and TCR 81), the new overlook will allow community members and visitors to safely watch enormous 250 ton CAT 793 haul trucks, mine shovels, and productions blast drills in Colorado's largest gold mining operation.
The new overlook provides a dynamic view of modern mining operations along with a scenic view of the historic area known as Grassy Valley, and will officially be called the Grassy Valley Mining Overlook.

This excellent location is only a quarter mile east of one of Newmont CC&V's historic mining preservation sites known as the Hoosier Complex (which is also the trailhead for the Gold Camp Trail through Cripple Creek's famous Poverty Gulch), making it a must-see area for anyone exploring the area's ongoing mining heritage. 

While in the area don't forget to visit the quintessential Rocky Mountain towns of Cripple Creek & Victor, Colorado, for educational museums, unique shopping, delightful restaurants, and comfortable hotels.
Work on CC&V's Grassy Valley Mining Overlook is being coordinated with local governments and is estimated to take about four to six weeks. Please watch for announcements about the progression of the project and an upcoming ribbon cutting ceremony for its official opening.
