How to use the Historic Mining Districts 3D viewer 
 

Return to Historic Mining Districts

Introduction
A few basic controls will allow you to explore the historic metallic mineral resources of Colorado in three dimensions.

  • Districts and mine symbols are linked to databases.
  • Click on any district or mine symbol. A pop-up will appear with available information.
  • Links inside the pop-up access technical and scientific resources.
  • Researchers: Use Table of Counties with Historic Mining Districts for multiple views.

    Navigation
    The navigation controls allow you to to explore the terrain around the mines in 3D. This is useful to determine the proximity of the mining feature to the avenues of access such as roads or trails. It provides a means of evaluating the difficulty of reaching these locations - Colorado's valuable minerals are often found in rugged mountainous terrain.

    Used properly, the navigation controls allow you to view the terrain at any scale, direction of view, or viewing angle.
