Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mine

Put on your hard hat and get ready to step into a real, working gold mine.


Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Company is a low-grade, surface mining operation located in Cripple Creek, Colorado. CC&V has been mining gold in the Cripple Creek Mining District since 1976.

About the Mine

The Cripple Creek gold deposits occur within a seven-square-mile, 30-million-year-old, volcanic complex that erupted and intruded through rocks that are over one-billion years old. The rocks within the complex consist mostly of breccias, dikes, sills, and flows with minor amounts of fossil-bearing lake sediments, sandstones, conglomerates, and fresh-water limestone. The large variety of rocks and minerals make the location a gold miner’s dream.
