The Cripple Creek district has about twelve thousand mining claims and about five hundred producing mines.

The principal producers and the biggest mines of the district are the ones seen on left, showing their output for the year 1901.

The year 1901 was an off year for gold and silver shares, both in America and abroad. In consequence the business of the Colorado Springs Mining Stock Exchange does not show as large a total this year as it has for two years past. But the showing is much more creditable than would. at first thought, be supposed.

During the year there were 152,831,845 shares of mining stocks bought and sold on the Colorado Springs board having the cash value of $21,031,110. In 1900, there were 197,551.213 shares bought and sold having a value of $31,065,359; and in 1899, the record was 238,045,750 shares, of a value of $34,863,425.

The last named year was the greatest boom year in the history of Cripple Creek mining and was in every way an unfair year to take as a criterion of the average year's business. A great deal has been said about business being as dull in 1901 as during the slump of 1897. It is necessary only to give the figures of that year's business to see that 1901 is in comparison a boom year alongside 1897.

In the last mentioned year there were only 49,725,426 shares of stock bought and sold of a cash value of $7,519,629. In 1901 the record was 152,831,834 shares of a cash value of $21,031,119. Quite an advantage in favor of the year just closed. Business has, according to these figures, been three times as good during the year as during the poorest year of the famous 1897 slump.
