Tellurium / White Cross Mining Camp

With a history paralleling the Argentum Mining Camp, it was never formally platted as a town site.  The population reportedly reached a peak of 500, and the camp served as a commercial center during periods of prosperity.  Listed under Hinsdale County Metal Mining and Mining Industry in Colorado Multiple Property Submissions.
