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.
