Riassunto: High atop the Continental Divide, the Climax Mine opened during World War I to meet military needs for molybedenum, a metallic element that enhances the toughness and durability of steel. Climax became the most successful American company of the Great Depression, even as its workers cursed the mine as "that hellhole near the sky." During World War II, Climax single-handedly supplied the huge Allied molybedenum demand, and in the postwar years it became the world's largest underground mine. But the 1981 molybdenum-market crash caused devastating layoffs, and today Climax is working to become competitive again in a changing global marketplace. Steve Voynick's deft portrayal of Climax and its people, ane more than 100 rare photoographs, make this an invaluable addition to western mining lore.
Stephen M. Voynick has worked as an advertising, industrial, and technical photographer; a marine salvage diver in the Caribbean and South America; and a hardrock miner in Colorado, Wyoming, and Arizona. Since 1982 he has worked as a full-time freelance writer.
Voynick has written more than five hundred articles, many on topics of mining, mining history, western lore, resource development, and applied science. He is currently a staff writer with Persimmon Hill, the magazine of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. With a lifelong interest in minerals, gemstones, and fossils, he is also a contributing editor and science columnist for Rock & Gem magazine. Voynick lives in Twin Lakes, Colorado.
