Just west of Crested Butte, Colorado lies Mount Emmons, known locally as "The Red Lady". Once the site of coal and mineral mining operations, Mount Emmons is believed to hold one of the largest and highest quality Molybdenum deposits in the United States. U S Energy would like to mine the deposit. Residents of Crested Butte have been fighting to keep Mount Emmons "mine free" since the early 1970s.
