On August 3, 2015, Newmont Mining Corporation (Newmont) completed the acquisition of the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V).

CC&V's efficient operations and recent permit extension, which has included significant investment in the construction of new gold ore processing facilities, support Newmont's strategy to lead the gold mining sector in value creation.

The Cripple Creek Mining District was mined historically in multiple 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.

  • This tour was the least expensive, but the best we have had in Colorado! Really cool to see the open pit mine. I like that it is now owned by a US company. Must see if you are into mining!  more »

  • I don't work there; nor do I go there often... As far as I can tell; they're in the business of recycling mountains! ^^^ - Oh, come on; that was pretty creative... I make the administration building sound fun! BTW: I still can't seem to get past the job-application "criteria-screening" rejection emails! I've been applying to a lot of positions, some were even "entry-level" and I got an almost immediate rejection for all but one; it took two-weeks for that one!
  • Great tour and super knowledgeable guide
  • Huge gold mine that is wonderful to see and if you have the qualifications to work here I have always been told long hours good money and that says it all.
  • Cool view of the mine ops
  • I love the history in Cripple Creek and Victor. There are so many great places to see and explore.
