Biographical or historical data
Before 1948, the Ballenger Timberline Gold Dredging Company completed the largest dredging operation in Colorado. The project was located near the town of Alma and covered an area of 2900 acres across from US Highway 285. The company produced new dredging equipment to compensate for the large boulders deposited in the area by glaciers. This included a new larger dragline bucket with replaceable teeth and special boulder handling equipment in the washing plant. The project under the direction of manager Harold L. Kumle and foreman Ray Allen produced large quantities of gold, silver and gravel.
