Climax The History of Colorado's Climax Molybdenum Mine

Part #: MPP-CLIMAX

Mountain Press Publishing 


High atop the Continental Divide, the Climax Mine opened during World War I to meet military needs for molybdenum, a metallic element that enhances the toughness and durability of steel. Climax became the most successful American company of the Great Depression, even as its workers cursed the mine as “that hellhole near the sky.” During World War II, Climax single-handedly supplied the huge Allied molybdenum demand, and in the postwar years became the world’s largest underground mine. But in 1981, the molybdenum market crashed and caused devastating layoffs. For most of the next three decades, Climax remained on a care-and-maintenance status with only occasional and very limited production. But after a $750-million rebuilding program, the Climax Mine restarted in 2012 and is again a major source of the world’s molybdenum. Steve Voynick’s deft portrayal of Climax and its people, along with more than 100 rare photographs, make this updated edition of Climax: The History of Colorado’s Climax Molybdenum Mine an invaluable contribution to western mining lore.

Roadside History of Colorado

Part #: MPP-425204

Mountain Press Publishing 


Colorado’s roads wind through country that is steeped in history, sometimes tracing routes with a history of their own, from the Santa Fe Trail to the Million Dollar Highway. But no matter where you roam in this beautiful state, this book can guide you. Like other books in this popular series, Roadside History of Colorado is divided into geographical-historical areas, making it easy to explore the state region by region. Mesmerizing tales of adventure and tragedy – including cannibalism on the “Starvation Trail,” the infamous Sand Creek Massacre, the jailing of Mother Jones, and the Big Thompson River flood of 1976 – will thrill both Coloradans and visitors.
