Satelite View

MRDS mine locations are often very general, and in some cases are incorrect. Some mine remains have been covered or removed by modern industrial activity or by development of things like housing. The satellite view offers a quick glimpse as to whether the MRDS location corresponds to visible mine remains.

Comments

Comment (General): A.B. Wilson fixed the coordinates (so the longitude plots in North America, not Asia) and updated the record to describe the Green Mountain (a.k.a. Wilkinson District) mineralized area at Green Mountain Reservoir on the west side of the highway between Silverthorne and Kremmling. Big Four mine is the only known mine in the 'district.'
