  • Al is Avery down to earth guy. I'm going to have to head back and spend the day with him to hear more of his stories! His tour guides did a great job!
  • I was not expecting such an elaborate tour. I loved how the tour guide explained each and everything. If you have kids or even if you don't, this place is very educational. My heart goes out to Al who is the owner of the mine; he lost a son a few months ago and he plans on making it a museum out of this mine named after his beloved son.
  • Ask for tour guide Dave. He's the real deal - a true miner who lives his craft, a wizard at story telling, and even offers ghost tours of the mine. My 3rd visit here (always take out of town guests) and this was the best tour. Tour just the right amount of time and fun, about an hour inside and panning outside (and option to feed chipmunks). Remember that mine temps are in the 50's which even on blazing hot days will feel cold after 10 min so bring long pants and jacket. Posted a few pics.
  • While driving through the mountains we saw Gold Mill signs all along and thought of stopping by one place. We drove in and was taken in right away for the tour. The tour was amazing with all the history and everything. It was so interesting. Tour guide was amazing. Took us about 30 mins to go across and it sure was worth it.
  • Went here with my family during Christmas week. Our tour guy Dave was entertaining and knew his history. For the price, it was worth the tour. Left feeling knowledgeable about gold mining.
