Overview

Overview

Newmont's Cripple Creek & Victor Mine (CC&V) is located in Teller County, Colorado, southwest of Pikes Peak. CC&V was formed as an operating company for mining operations in 1976, with mining in its Cresson Project starting in 1995.

CC&V’s modern, high-tech operations allow for responsible surface mining of various ore types. The majority of the ore is processed in a zero-discharge, valley-type, leach pad to recover gold and silver. In 2015 CC&V commissioned a rod, ball, and flotation mill which processes CC&V’s higher grade, non-oxidized ore.

Key Facts

The Cripple Creek gold deposits occur within a seven square mile (18 sq. km), 30 million year old, volcanic-intrusive complex that erupted and intruded through rocks that are over one billion years old.

Location History

The Cripple Creek Mining District was mined historically with underground operations until the 1960s. Mining activity then ceased for approximately a decade. Small-scale surface mining using the heap-leach gold recovery method began in 1971 followed by large-scale surface mining, which grew with the start of production at CC&V’s current mining operation, called the Cresson Project.

The Cresson is named for the historic underground mining operation of the same name. The Cresson is famous for the great gold find of the District, the “Cresson Vug.” A vug is a cavity in the rock, lined with crystals somewhat like a geode.

Engineering for the modern Cresson Mine began in 1993, and obtaining the various permits necessary to mine, ensuring compliance with applicable federal, State, and local requirements was completed in 1994.

Health and Safety

Newmont's goal is to create a zero-harm workplace, and in Colorado, we have several programs and tools to help us achieve that goal.

For example, at CC&V, employees established an engagement program called SOS (See it, Own it, Solve it), which is a collaborative effort across all levels of the organization. The program encourages employees to improve our operations by speaking up when they see concerns, taking ownership of those concerns and helping identify solutions.

CCV-Zero-Harm

Community

Newmont's success in building sustainable operations is based on our company’s value of demonstrating leadership in safety, stewardship of the environment and social responsibility throughout all phases of the mining life-cycle.

Community Volunteering

Our employees devote countless hours to volunteerism in local communities. Broad-based community volunteer efforts contribute to projects such as community events, parks and recreation teams, volunteer fire departments and more.

Community Investment

CC&V is proud to be directly involved in organizations, events and agencies representing our community. A small sample of some of our recent activities include:

Historic Preservation
  • Independence Headframe and Mill on National Register of Historic Places
  • Relocation of the Cresson Headframe and Ore Sorting House
  • Gold Sovereign Headframe moved to Cripple Creek District Museum
  • Mining equipment display at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum
  • Mining equipment display at the Gold Camp Trailhead
  • Relocation and renovation of the Wedge Headframe and Anaconda Crib Wall
Contributions
  • CC&V donated the gold for the new overlay on the State capitol dome
  • Major sponsor of the Pikes Peak Regional Hospital
  • Support of Southern Teller County Focus Group
  • Upgrades to City of Victor water delivery system and city streets
  • Donation of land for Cripple Creek Heritage Center
  • Sponsorship of teams with Woodland Park, Cripple Creek, and Canon City
  • Teller County and Fremont County 4-H livestock sales Events
  • Annual Victor Gold Rush Days traditional mining games
  • Two Mile High Club Donkey Derby Days
  • Victor Celebrates the Arts
  • Challenger Learning Center

We are particularly proud of our partnership with the Southern Teller County Focus Group to preserve historical sites throughout the mining district and provide safe public access to some of those areas. Five trails have been developed by the Focus Group on CC&V property. The Focus Group is responsible for maintenance of the trails and for signage that provides valuable information about the historical and modern mining in the area.

The intent of CC&V’s donation program is to support and contribute to the communities in which we live, play and work, and to provide visibility for the CC&V, our operations and our employees.

Environment

We use best practices to manage storm water, prevent pollution and protect wildlife. Careful monitoring of air, water quality and quantity, wildlife populations and habitat are key to protecting these resources. Monitoring reports are routinely and regularly submitted to various regulatory agencies.

Compliance and Reporting

Newmont's Cripple Creek and Victor (CC&V) sites, facilities and projects are subject to state and federal environmental regulations. Newmont has a staff of environmental professionals and technicians to manage these regulations appropriately and carry out the company’s standards of environmental stewardship.

Closure and Reclamation

Colorado’s unique and varied natural landscape is an attribute that Newmont is committed to help protect for the enjoyment of future generations. In order to do this, planning for closure starts at the development stages of all projects. Additionally, concurrent reclamation is practiced throughout the mine life to revegetate and stabilize disturbed areas as soon as possible to provide habitat for wildlife and avoid erosion.

Community Outreach and Education

CC&V has organized noxious weed identification and management programs with local residents that raise awareness of weed problems in and around the city of Victor. The site has also worked for several years with the Cresson Elementary and Catamount Institute “Young Environmental Stewards” (YES) Clubs of the Pikes Peak Region to reclaim an abandoned gravel site now called “Ceylon Beard’s” in honor of the local resident who homesteaded there. The site has become an experiential learning station for local kids on planting ponderosa pine, building birdhouses and bat houses, creating small animal habitat, and studying macroinvertebrates.

Tours

In partnership with the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum in Victor, Colorado, Newmont's CC&V mine offers public tours of its modern mining operations.

Visitors are shuttled safely onto the mine site where they will see haul trucks, breathtaking vistas and industrial scale rock crushing equipment. This experience gives visitors an opportunity to witness socially and environmentally responsible mining activities at all stages of the mine lifecycle, from exploration, environmental monitoring and permitting, to production, ore processing and reclamation.

Public mine tours are offered twice daily from late May through September, except Thursdays. The charge is $8.50 per person, and all proceeds go to the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum to support annual activities. To learn more about making reservations, when to arrive and appropriate tour attire, visit www.VictorColorado.com or click the summer mine tour link on this page.
