COLORADO A STATE OF RICHES Colorado a State of Riches The state of Colorado is so rich in minerals that there is an area called the mineral belt. The belt runs from the northeast to the southwest through the Rocky Mountains and is from 10 to 60 miles wide. This mineral rich belt stretches from Boulder to the La Plata Mountains just north of Durango. According to the experts, this mineral belt was created around 75 to 20 million years ago due to igneous intrusion and volcanic eruptions deposited over the landscape in a lineament.   (Matthews, 2003). Many of Colorado’s most popular ski towns were once thriving mines. Cripple Creek Colorado is a very small mining town near where I grew up and they have turned to casinos and gambling to supplement their economy now that the mines have been shut down. In order to survive after mining activities slow or are shut down completely, these towns must adapt their economies or die. Image taken from: www.colorado.edu/GeolSci/Resources/ WUSTectonics/LaramideVolcanics/Geography_2.htm There have been over 770 minerals found and catalogued in Colorado (Matthews et al., 2003). So much diversity can be found here, gemstones include; garnet, topaz, tourmaline, rock crystal quartz, smoky quartz, rose quartz, amethyst quartz, turquoise, peridot, sapphire, and zircon. Gold, diamonds, and amazonite are also found in museum quality specimens. 2
