Hog Ranch Mine
The Hog Ranch Mine is a gold mine located in the Hog Ranch Mountains, near Leadville.
Note that Minerals of Nevada incorrectly places Hog Ranch Mine in the Cottonwood Mining District. This is likely because the Cottonwood District includes the Fox Range, whereas the Hog Ranch Mountains, located north, near Leadville include Fox Mountain. Bussey (1996) states that Hog Ranch is in tufa from the Cottonwood Creek, which adds to the confusion.
