PROFESSOR E. C. LINDEMANN, Geologist and Manager of the Little Louise Mine, Leadville, Lake County, Colorado

Ernest C. Lindemann, a Pennsylvania native, arrived in Colorado in 1870, and went to work as a mineralogist, geologist, and mining engineer in Black Hawk, Central City, Georgetown, Breckenridge and other early Colorado Territorial mining districts.

Lindemann was educated at the School of Mines in Strasbourg, Germany, graduated in 1849; and then, in 1856 went off to explore Alaska.  He traveled that territory for over a year and a half, going as far as a 1,000 miles north of the lower Yukon.  During this time, his practical experience made him highly suited for the silver and gold fields of Colorado, where he intended to move.

In the mid-1890s, Lindemann had the opportunity to manage the Little Louise Mine on the north side of Evans Gulch, between the Ball Mountain and Weston faults, on Prospect Mountain, in the Leadville Mining District.   He embraced this position with his usual optimism and passion.  Under Lindemann's supervision, the Little Louise showed increased productivity; however, the property was never to be a Little Pittsburgh. 

Lindemann lived in Denver for a number of years, and had an office at 1559 Emerson in 1896; and then, at 3146 Gilpin in 1905.  He moved to the City of Boulder in 1906 and took up residence at 2473 20th with his wife, Louise.  There, he worked as a mining engineer, having in his background successful mining ventures in South America, Australia, and South Africa.  While in Boulder, he practiced his care of animals by becoming an agent of the State Humane Society, often working for free.

E. C. Lindemann had these cut-glass, ruby-flashed goblets specially made to promote his Little Louise Mine enterprise in Leadville, Lake County, Colorado.  They are unique, artistically made, and in fine condition.  They are unique items representing the illustrious mining history of Leadville and Colorado.
