Anything we can read about on Wikipedia or somewhere else?

There's another site I use for history etc, but I'm tired from cooking.
The South Easterly one is the one I visited via Omega Mine (it sits between the two claims) which isn't on here. The North Westerly claim is a gold mine. Apparently its infrastructure is impressive, but the entrances are capped or collapsed. You can see it from the road from Ridgway, high up.
Next week's recovery run.

Not sure if I told you Tom, but <10% of the Thin Man/Fat Man/Little Boy A bombs Uranium came from here. (Most came from The Belgium Congo). I thought it came from the Vanadium tailings, but it seems Uranium was also mined. What would you use Uranium for before The Nuclear Age??? Vanadium was primarily used in Steel production for the Model T. I learnt the Model T stuff today.
The tailings were milled in Durango, through GJ. Durango milled all the enriched Uranium for the US's nuclear weapons until '72???? Throat and Lung cancer rates shut it down.
