Creede Rock & Mineral Show
Aug 6 – Aug 8 all-day

Knowledgeable individuals will be on hand at the Rock and Mineral Show to help identify specimens and to discuss the geology of Mineral County,
which holds a wide variety of unusual features like volcanic dikes and vents, the famous Wheeler Geologic Area (a classic ash deposit), and the
Creede Fossil Formation.  Evening Programs are Friday and Saturday at 7pm.

Mineral County’s geology has fueled a long legacy of interest and fascination from early day prospectors and surveyors to modern mining engineers
and mineralogists and mining investors. One of the world’s largest volcanic calderas created unusually rich ore deposits that eventually gave birth
to the Creede mining district.  Millions of dollars worth of silver, gold, lead, and zinc were extracted before the last mine closed in 1985.
Creede, which survived fires, floods, and mining depressions, became known as the “little town that would not die.”
The spectacular Pillars of Hercules, remnants of an ancient rhyolite wall, frame Creede’s bustling Main Street district.
Victorian-era buildings today serve as gift shops, restaurants, galleries, and B&Bs.

Proceeds from exhibitors’ fees benefit the Creede Underground Community Center and the Creede/Mineral County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center.
The tunnels and caverns of the Underground Mining Museum, Community Center, and Fire Station were blasted into the solid rock walls of
Willow Creek Canyon by three miners and volunteer helpers.  The community project was completed in 1992.  Creede is a geologic haven for amateurs
and professionals.  The 17-mile Bachelor Loop passes old town sites, mine buildings, and other relics of Mineral County’s silver boom.
The Last Chance Mine offers on-site tours and on-site rockhounding opportunities.

Call the Creede/Mineral County Visitor Center at 719-658-2374 for more information.
