Gold is back in Denver!

This March $120,000 worth of gold was sent to Florence, Italy to be transformed into gold leaf before adorning our Capital dome. Sixty-five ounces, mined here in Colorado, will be used to re-gild our beautiful state building in the extensive restoration project, Share in the Care. It's estimated that the 140,000 1/8,000 millimeter tissue thin sheets of  gold leaf will be applied at the rate of 50 to 100 square feet per day taking the remainder of the summer to complete.  To learn more about Share in the Care or to donate to this extensive resotration project click here.
