Becker Bates Mine Central City Colorado
The mine had changed the names over the years but this was found hanging on the wall in the back behind the hoist location. The Bates is the second gold lode discovery in Colorado in 1859. Theodore Becker came here in 1860 and started buying claims on the Bates. Check out my collection of images. Iam the owner now and it's not open to the public so this is a rare view of this historic mine. Central City and Black Hawk have great mining history.
