Birth: 1845
Death: 1924
Colorado, USA

Indian scout and Discoverer. He was attached to General Crook in "Custer's Avengers". Later in 1879 on Barlett Mountain in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, during "The Leadville Boom" he claimed a large grayish colored outcropping of mineral. He had no idea what the mineral was, but was convinced that it must be worth something. It wasn't until 1895 that he identified the mineral as molybdenite (molybdenum sulfide). At the time there was virtually no market or use for the metal. Years later steelmakers found a use for molybdenum as an alloy in producing hard steel. Shipments began in 1915. The claim was called Climax Molybdenum Mine and began full production in 1918. The mine became for a time, the largest molybdenum mine in the world, and for many years supplied about three-fourths of the world's total supply of the metal.

I still wonder about his adventures. Where they took him and who he met and what kind of person he was. Anyone with information on Charles J Senter contact me please.
