Geology and Mineral “Eye Candy” of the Victor-Cripple Creek Mining District

Besides being a world-class gold deposit, the Victor-Cripple Creek district has produced fine examples of dozens of minerals that grace major private and museum collections world-wide. This talk will briefly cover the geologic history and major geologic features of the district and how these relate to its mineral riches. Bob will show photos of “mineral eye candy” from his own and other private collections and from that of the Cripple Creek District Museum. The talk will be non-technical and is designed to give viewers a greater appreciation for one of Teller County’s premier, world famous geologic wonders. Questions will be encouraged, and you are welcome to bring specimens to “show and tell”.
C.R. (Bob) Carnein received degrees in geology and glaciology from Ohio State before returning to his native Pennsylvania, where he taught geology for 37 years at Waynesburg College and Lock Haven University. While at Waynesburg, Bob took charge of the Waynesburg College Geology Field Station, in Florissant, Colorado, where he taught geology field methods during most summers from 1971 through 1988. Bob and his wife Nell lived in Pennsylvania until both retired from teaching in 2007, at which point they moved to their current address near Divide.
Bob has collected minerals since 1954 and, thanks to the Teller County connection, has amassed a representative selection of Cripple Creek minerals. He has published articles about Cripple Creek in the “Mineralogical Record”, a mineral periodical, and in a Colorado School of Mines symposium volume from 2017. Between 2012 and 2017, he worked with Steven Veatch and John Rakowski to photograph and catalog the minerals in the collection of the Cripple Creek District Museum.
The Cripple Creek District Museum invites you to learn more about the geology of the Cripple Creek area on Sunday, August 14, 2022 at 2pm. The talk will be held at the Cripple Creek Heritage Center, 283 S Hwy-67, Cripple Creek CO. This program is presented by the Cripple Creek District Museum and the City of Cripple Creek. Reservations are recommended. Refreshments will be served. For more information or to make a seating reservation, please call 719-689-9540.

Victor Pack Burro Race

Victor, Colorado Packing Fun Into September Burro Race
 
Experience a day of fast, furious, and furry racing that must be seen to be believed. Load up the kids of all ages and come to historic Victor Saturday, Sept. 10 for a day of four-footed races packed with old-time fun.
 
The annual Victor Pack Burro Race will kick off at Noon in downtown with racers from across the region competing for cash prizes. The furry four-footeds are historically dubbed the Rocky Mountain Canary for their role in underground mining; the burros were used above ground during the gold rush era for hauling heavy loads, but also underground in the mines for the same tasks.
 
Today the burros are beloved symbols of days gone by and are, along with their trainers and human counterparts, the centerpiece of this event.
 
The burros start arriving about 10 a.m. and the race kicks off at noon in downtown. But there is much more to do before and after. Don’t miss the mini donkey race and other fun in downtown.
 
Proceeds from the burro race entries benefit the Southern Teller County Focus Group (STCFG), a non-profit that maintains the Trails of Gold and assists with historic preservation and mining education.
 
The race will begin and end in downtown so you can spend the day surrounded by the historic buildings from the gold rush era. During the day while racers are running trails you can look for unique treasures in Victor’s shops, eat and drink at four local establishments, pan for gold at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, or hike on the Trails of Gold for a superior view of the area’s historic mining. In addition, the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum will be offering a Gold Camp Adventure Tour at 10 a.m. returning by 11:30.
 
The race is produced by the Western Pack Burro Ass-ociation and sponsored by the Southern Teller County Focus Group with assistance from event sponsors Newmont Cripple Creek & Victor and the City of Victor.
