    : According to GNIS, it's about 3/4 of a mile west of Georgetown ... 39 43' 12"N - 105 43' 26"W. I don't know anything about the site nor do I have any topo maps of the area.

    : To see map, go to GNIS link on Bob Starks reply. Type in feature name: Astor Mine, state: Colorado, feature type: Mine, then send query. When page changes scroll down to "View USGS Digital Raster Graphic", and click on it. When map appears click on Democrat Mtn to zoom in and see Astor Mine.
