Description

Hopemore Mine is located in the Leadville mining district east of the city. It is owned by the miner and locksmith Bob Calder, who plans to open the mine as a show mine in spring 2009, weather permitting. The road up to the mine, off County Road 1 (Fifth Street), is not plowed. The tourist mine will bring the visitors to a depth of 150m. It will focus on mining safety education, mining heritage, environmental awareness and preservation. There will also be a nature path, an above ground tour for people who are either hesitant or unable to journey underground.
