Celebrating 25 Years of Reclamation and Partnership at the Idarado Mine

From its colorful and compelling origins producing base metals to support the US war effort in WWII to its innovative, award-winning reclamation, the Idarado Mine has stamped its legacy on Telluride, Ouray, and the mountains that connect them. Yet since shutting down in 1978, the mine has largely faded from the collective consciousness of its neighboring communities.

Come learn about the rich and fascinating history of the Idarado Mine and its ongoing role in responsible environmental management and historic preservation at a welcome reception followed by the premiere of the feature length film and a multimedia presentation at the Sheridan Opera House on Saturday, September 29, 4pm.
