Additional Details:
One of the nation's richest mineral areas. Over the years, more than $500,000,000 in silver, gold, lead and zinc has been taken from its mines, and it is reliably estimated that an equal amount still remains undiscovered. Because of difficult market conditions, however, the mining industry has suffered considerably. The Pride of the West, in fact, is one of the last operating mines. But Silverton has other natural wealth. On three sides is beautiful San Juan National Forest--over two million acres of stately aspen, pine and fir trees. In this region it is common to see deer and wild turkeys from the road.
