The Theresa Mine COLORDO GOLD MINE!

No Assembly Required!

This is a 3D Scan and Print of the Theresa Gold Mine

Please see the pictures and review dimensions for your desired scale. The model is printed true to scale and is designed to allow for a single-track running underneath, providing a convenient way to drop ore in a train. Clearances might be a little tight with some trains as the railway used to access the mine was narrow gauge. The mine will look great cosmetically even if you decide not to run anything underneath it.

This is a fully assembled 1-piece print so if you like to paint and finish models but don't really like building and the glue mess than this is for you. This will certainly make a nice addition to some one’s layout or diorama.

A little about the mine...

The elevated platform served as a way to carry waste rock away from the mine after being sorted. Workers would climb the support onto the platform to then get inside the building.

The model is based off the real-life Theresa Mine located near Victor Colorado. The steel structure you see was built in 1934 after a fire burnt down most the above original ground structures.

The mine produced 120,000 ounces of gold worth about $155 million at today’s prices. The shaft was eventually over 1500 feet deep. You can take a hike and stand right next to the structure today.
