Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mine Tour

The Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mining Company ("CC&V") operates the current day Cresson operations, the largest gold mine in Colorado just outside of Victor. A guided tour of the mine is offered during the summer months.

Driving through the area you will see signs of active mining in just about every phase. From the valley fill/gold recovery operation along Highway 67 near the Little Grouse Mountain Overview, to the surface mine seen from the American Eagles Scenic Overlook, you will gain a perspective of the modern gold mining methods keeping Victor’s gold mining legacy alive. CC&V is a joint venture operation between AngloGold Ashanti (Colorado) Corp and GCGC.  AngloGold Ashanti (Colorado) Corp is a wholly owned subsidiary of AngloGold Ashanti North America Inc. CC&V headquarters are in downtown Victor.
