Mining Boom begins, collectors & dealers profit in minerals

The TALE BE TOLD, the wise collector or mineral dealer/investor who realizes before others that a certain mining district or mineral has become obsolete, non-productive, or supplanted by a foreign source- "get it while you can, there won’t be any more" comes into factor, and soon, supply rarity and provenance brings increasing value to the specie, like "Motherlode" Gold. So goes the Crystal Creek District of Colorado, after a long run of almost continuous production since 1863, and a recent resurgence based on high values- which ironically also spelled the end of the district after the historic 2002 Hayman Wildfire destroyed mining camps. Recent severe erosion  in the burn zone took out what was left of the remaining miners’ roads & quarries, forcing the last of the survivors to abandon their mining claims to the impossible surface conditions cause by Forest Service mismanagement after the fire. [which also generated the current Mountain Pine Beetle tree-kill-off crisis across the West.]

Mine Orecart Overfloweth

Crystal Creek Colorado.  Rarely available, and not often seen, are the personal mineral specimen collections of mine owners. The former owner & operator of the famous ROCKET & BLUE FROG MINES, which have produced a stunning total of over four TONS of specimens since 1988, has assembled beautiful and rare examples in this collection. Now available, valued at over $50K, we are open for bids! Watch the show!

Just when adversity looms, advantage & opportunity also knock!

The "News" as such swings wildly from Comic Tragedy, Absurdist Satire, Film Noir, and Sarcastic Relief of late. So wild, "We couldn’t make this stuff up"  "In your dreams" Gracie adds. But the ore price of molybdenum holds at $35, and even silver is worth mining again. Those miners in Tombstone sure are busy. {Make hay while the sun shines.} The summer adventure season is underway, despite the political terror theater. What is remarkable is the level of inquiry into prospecting expeditions. I can thank The TRAVEL Channel’s series, Best Places for Cash & Treasures for a resurgence of interest in AMETHYST and other mineral collectables, as well as a more focused planning for prospecting adventure by cash-constrained travelers. YES, we are Ready, Willing, and Very Able to lead expeditions in S. AZ [near the border safely] and tour some of the wests best gem + mineral collecting sites. Most importantly, we have a wonderful set of prospects on our own  Amethyst Ranch, (outfitters and catering available,) and best of all, the capacity to record your expedition on High Definition Video.     Reasonable rates, references.
