Cripple Creek & Victor
Newmont’s Cripple Creek & Victor mine (CC&V) is located in Teller County, Colorado, southwest of Pikes Peak. CC&V was formed in 1976 as an operating company for mining, with mining in its Cresson Project starting in 1995. CC&V’s modern, high-tech operations allow for responsible surface mining of various ore types. In 2021, operations were transitioned to leach-only production; the ore is processed in a zero-discharge, valley-type leach pad to recover gold primarily. Newmont’s success in building sustainable operations is based on demonstrating leadership in safety, stewardship of the environment and social responsibility throughout all phases of the mining lifecycle.
Cripple Creek & Victor (CC&V): Stable Leach-Only Production Past 2035
- In 2021, operations were transitioned to leach only, providing stable production for the remainder of the mine life.
- In November 2021, Newmont formed a strategic alliance with Caterpillar to develop – initially at our CC&V and Tanami sites – a fully connected, automated, zero-carbon-emitting, end-to-end mining system to deploy all-electric autonomous haulage fleets as part of our mining fleet electrification program, called Vision Zero (V0).
