Continental Scientific Drilling Program.;]. Lake Creede was moderately saline closed-basin lake that developed in the Ma Creede caldera in the San Juan Mountains in the southwest Colorado.

The volcaniclastic sediments deposited within Overview of the Creede caldera Continental Scientific Drilling Program book late Oligocene lake were first described and named as the Creede Formation by Emmons and Larsen (). The lake and its sedimentary fill are of interest first as representatives of a caldera.

At 25 Ma a major epithermal silver and base metal deposit formed in rhyolitic welded tuff near Creede, Colorado. Nearly metric tons of silver, appreciable lead, and small amounts of zinc, copper, and gold, have been produced from large, crustified veins under Bachelor and Bulldog Mountains north and northwest of Creede.

Prior geologic, hydrologic, and stable-isotope studies showed that.

That explosion formed what is known as the La Garita Caldera and spewed more than 3, cubic miles (5, cubic km) of lava — enough to put down a foot layer on all of : Remy Melina. MBT temperature estimates show average glacial temperatures in core VC-3 of -4 o C, and average interglacial temperatures of +4 o C, and the general trends are well corroborated by multiple proxies including interglacial/glacial pollen ratios and lacustrine organic productivity estimates (organic carbon and Si/Ti ratios from the scanning XRF).

A temperature increase of ~9 o C occurs during. A geological wonder, Creede sits in the La Garita Caldera, formed millions of years ago in the same volcanic eruption that created the spectacular Wheeler Geologic Area. Mineral County is 95% national forest and public access lands with alpine valleys, clear streams, high mountains, and the La Garita and Weminuche Wilderness Areas, rimmed by the Continental Divide.

Creede was one of the latter of these camps, and if once thriving—once burned down and rebuilt—that party largely ended with the repeal of the silver act in The last operating mine closed some two decades ago (although some talk of new mining activity), with summer tourism having become the mainstay of the limited economy.
