Aspen Mt. Mining Corp.

The Compromise Mine Complex has produced over twenty million ounces of silver since 1886. David M. Hyman, Jerome B. Wheeler and DRC Brown made fortunes here and invested them in the town below. The mine had developed forty levels over a vertical relief of more than two thousand feet. The lowest levels of the mine are seen hundred feet lower than the streets of Aspen. Aspen Mountain Mining Corporation is engaged in the rehabilitation, exploration and development of the old workings as well as driving new ones in search of silver ore. The corporation is owned and operated by local residents.
