Spring 2011 Tour – New Almaden Mine

We want to express our deepest thanks to Arthur Boudreault and Michael Boulland, historians with the New Almaden Quicksilver Mine Museum near San Jose, for their wonderful lecture and tour of the company town known as “The Hacienda” on Saturday June 26, 2011. The tour included the Casa Grande and adobe houses dating from the 1840s in the original mining tour. We also want to thank John Slenter, Park Ranger and Chief of Interpretation for the Almaden Quicksilver County Park for leading a fascinating van tour of mining sites in the “Cinnabar Hills” surrounding “The Hacienda”.
