TELLURIDE, Colo. (AP) - Mining historians from around the world are planning to gather for a conference in western Colorado.

The Telluride Daily Planet reports (https://bit.ly/1Yf129D ) that professional and amateur historians will visit Telluride, Mountain Village and the surrounding region this weekend for the Mining History Association’s annual conference.

Mining was the most important business in Telluride for nearly a century, beginning in the 1870s.

The public can attend the conference’s talks on Friday and Saturday for a one-time entrance fee of $15. On Saturday, Mining History Association members will visit the Telluride Historical Museum.

The conference ends with field trips to Uravan, Naturita, Bridal Veil Falls power plant, Ames Power Plant and historic Telluride.
