ABOUT THE MINING DISTRICT

Mount Antero MINING DISTRICT, CAFFEE COUNTY, CO

GEOGRAPHY

At it’s peak, Mt. Antero stands at 14,269ft. above sea level- Also known as a  “fourteener” by mountaineers.  Mt Antero  is the 11th largest peak in the state of Colorado, with Mt Elbert as the highest (14,433ft.) and Rio Grande Pyramid (13,821ft.) at the smallest. This mountain is located on the Sawatch (Meaning blue earth) Range between the towns of Salida and Buena Vista, and borders the western edge of the Arkansas River valley on the collegiate peaks range in Chaffee County. This mountain peak is fully visible and accessible from US Highway 285.

 

GEOLOGY / HISTORY

Mt. Antero is the 3rd highest gem field in the world and is the highest in North America with findings well above the timberline. Mt Antero was first prospected in the 1800’s along with the surrounding mountains in Colorado. While most people were searching for hidden gold and silver, they stumbled across a more precious treasure, Aquamarine. From sea green to sky blue coloring, these stones come from pockets or bubbles in the granite known by scientists as Miarolitic cavities. Other associated minerals include white feldspar, colorless quartz, smoky quartz, fluorite, and more rarely found orange to sherry topaz crystals as well as the beryllium mineral Bertrandite. Mt. Antero is also known as the top Phenakite location in the US. Some of the Smoky quartz crystals taken from near the peak of Mt. Antero has weighed as much as 50 pounds.

 

 RECREATION

Part of the San Isabel National Forest, Mt. Antero is known by many as a great place for  recreation- not just by rock hounds, but by hikers, campers, climbers, and off-road enthusiasts as well. There are three main trail-heads to the mountain; Baldwin Gulch, Cascade, and Browns Creek Trail-head. All three are accessible by four wheel drive, and unless you are afraid of heights, Mt. Antero is not a hard trail to complete. With a 4x4 vehicle, the rough, rocky switchbacks and occasional stream crossings can be maneuvered. Although it is a long hard climb during the warmer months, it is possible to access the mountain by foot as well, but given the 7 mile one way distance, and the possibility of dehydration if not properly equipped, it is best to take it on in a vehicle. Typical mining season at this altitude lasts from late-June to mid-September because of weather conditions. You can expect to find snow on some trails well through June or even July, leading to rougher  driving conditions or even road closures. The elevation can also host more severe weather not limited to lightening or even hail.
