Here are some photos of the Snowstorm Gold Dredge that's located in Fairplay Colorado.
This dredge was used between Fairplay and Alma aroud 1941 to the 1960's.
This is a picture of the Bobinson winches. These were used to move the dredge.
These are some of the sluices used to catch the gold. They cleaned approximately 50 pounds of gold every 3-4 days.
This is the last intact gold dredge left in Colorado. There are some amazeing stories behind this dredge for our history, but it still made "Colorado's Most Endangered Places List" for 2001. For more infomation on the Snowstorm Gold Dredge Click Here
