It's that chimney in the springs that I'm sure every urbexer has visited. Quite disappointed that there was nothing really at the bottom of it. Still cool none the less, surprised it's still there with all the homes being built around it

That's gotta be Gold Hill Mesa. Developers are turning this area into the next hipster sprawling housing development. Driven past here countless times. There are drains in the area of size if you go looking, as well as this chimney.

Also of note, the tailings piles were used for fill under the couple feet of dirt that's under these new houses.

I lived in Colorado Springs from 1984 to 1990.

That place was wide-open and the owners were OK with people exploring and even writing graffiti. There were several, very long concrete tunnels. It was just really cool place to run around in.

At some point around 1988 or so, something "bad" (I forget the details) happened there and up went a fence and lots of no trespassing signs. There was a write up about the incident in Gazette-Telegraph. If was more motivated, I'd go look it up.

When the Golden Cycle Mill was open and working, it was the largest cyanide mill in the world. Hence lots of ground pollution and why it has been sitting vacant for a very long time.
