Leadville’s boom-to-bust mining history has never been told in such living detail. Access to ruins no longer available to the general public, along with rare photographs from the past and old film footage make this a collectors piece. From the 1860 gold discovery of Abe Lee to the development of the smelters and intertwined investors, there will never be another story in America’s history like this. From State archives to attics and countless hours of research, to rare photographs and film footage; from taking our cameras to many places where man hasn’t set foot for over 100 years, to the edit desk…Leadville’s mining boom story is finally told…. like never before!
