Pennsylvania Mine.

Portal Rehabilitation Project.

The Pennsylvania Mine drains heavy metal laden water into Peru Creek, a tributary of the Snake River, and results in one of the most significant single loading sources contributing to water quality degradation. The mine is developed on six different “levels,” designated A through F, with A being the highest in elevation and F at the bottom.
The first goal of the project is to establish safe access to the underground workings on both Level F and Level C of the Pennsylvania Mine. Following conplretion of the project, underground investigations will be conducted to provide a more comprehensive understanding of mine hydrology and eventual remedy selection.
Project managed and developed by: Colorado Division of Reclamation Mining & Safety.
