You can camp on your own property or build your dream home.Mineral rights transfer with this and all claims. The history of this area is rich and is located just north of the famous Bassick Mine. The Bassick was an important mine that opened in 1877 and was located about two miles north of Rosita, Colorado. Named the Bassick Mine in honor of its discoverer, E. G. Bassick, the mine proved to be quite rich. Ore worth $500,000 in gold and silver was taken from the mine during its first 18 months of operation and the town of Querida sprang up around it. The ore body of the Bassick Mine came from outcrops on the flanks of Mount Tyndall, the very location of this beautiful land. According to writings in the late 1800s, the ore occurs in a mass of brecciated (fragmented) volcanic rock, formed primarily of andesitic material. Mr. Cross, who published in this area in 1896, interpreted the brecciated rock as the filling of a volcanic neck. Interesting, right? Well, it is for those who love history. Those days of hard-rock mining and riches are long gone and the Wet Mountain Valley where mining history took place, has returned to its roots of ranching, hay production, scenic beauty, hunting, and hiking. The stories and memories of pivotal people remain, as do the remnants of the boom towns that sprang up during Colorado's rich history. To walk the land is to understand it's fascination for the immigrants settling the west and before them the Ute people who used the land as their summer hunting ground.
