Large mine map for the Perins Peak Mine which was north of Durango, Colorado on Lightner Creek. Later it was known as the Boston Mine and between 1901 to 1926 produced over one million tons of coal. The mine boomed long enough for the now ghost town of Perrin to have three-hundred people call it home. Presumed unique. Rare.
