||Salem Minerals Inc. was founded in 1986 by Todd Hennis as a small
gold mining company in Colorado. We own a number of famous gold mines
in Colorado, and part of the proceeds from our product sales are used
for historic mining preservation activities. We also engage in environmental
remediation work at inactive mine sites, and are active in improving
water quality in the Animas River basin through our voluntary efforts.
We also have an extensive recycling program to source packing materials
for our products, and use environmentally friendly packing materials
|We are dedicated to bringing you high quality products
that are imaginative, educational, and impart a sense of the wonders
of nature and minerals. Innovative design, customer service and a
dedicated staff are our hallmarks.
Salem Minerals Inc. owns the historic Buckley Brothers General Store
in Silver Plume, Colorado directly on Exit 226 of I-70, opposite the
Georgetown Loop Steam Railroad. We invite you to visit and sample
our selection of old time general store goods, our rocks, minerals
and fine mineral specimens, Amish foods from Todd Hennis's birthplace,
and the mining history of Silver Plume.
