Known Producing Info:
In 1896, at the foot of the hogbacks, near the eastern edge of what is now the Red Rock Canyon property, the Colorado-Philadelphia Reduction Company built a chlorination mill for refining Cripple Creek gold ore. The mill which was completed in September of 1896 was the largest of its kind in the United States. The location of the mill at the base of the hogbacks was well chosen since it was less than a quarter mile from the main Midland tracks, close to an abundant source of building stone, and on the outskirts of Colorado City which was the industrial center of the region. Hundreds of tons of red sandstone from the Kenmuir Quarry in Red Rock Canyon went into its three foot thick foundation.
The Mill closed in 1904.
