Buckman Mine


Address: Three miles northwest of Golden on Hwy. 58

Owned by Guy Buckman. The focus of this mine was the development and exploration of uranium. In April of 1956 the operators started to drive a new tunnel into a vein which was originally discovered in an old gold prospect tunnel higher up the hill. First aid supplies were on hand, but no machinery was kept on the claim. If a portable air compressor was needed for drilling, it would be pulled in from prospects.
