CREEDE, Colorado SILVER!!!!   Bulldog Mine High-Grade!!!  Slab .7 mm - .2 mm thick cut from a Barite vein with high-grade Silver mineralization. Creede was mined from the 1870s to 1960s. A revival was made in 1969 when the Homestake Mining Co.  opened up the Bulldog Mine and produced millions of ounces of Silver. The mine was shut down in 1985 due to low Silver prices.  Hecla is currently active on this property.

This slab shows distinct banding of white Barite matrix with several bands of gray, Silver sulfides, probably Argentite/Acmite.  Most of the bands contain Native Silver,  there are also whispey and granular Silver showings throughout the piece.
