    The history of early southwestern Colorado mining, up to the Ute removal in , can be summarized by three basic stages: early gold placer mining near Baker’s Park and in the Tin Cup mining district during the early ’s; the era of silver mining along the Animas River around Silverton and in the Elk Mountain region of modern Gunnison. Placer-mining history in the other districts is typical of desert placer mining throughout the southwest. Most production resulted from the rela­ tively intense period of prospecting immediately following discovery; a decline in placer-mining activity followed, then a small revival during the early 's. The book reveals a pretty good explanation; one easy enough to understand for the non-technical person. Author: Brian Kelly. Bitcoin Book #3 – The Age of Cryptocurrency.
