  • Now I know that Indiana Jones never really went gold mining but this mine was a true adventure. Beyond the outskirts of the town, this ran down, tucked away, mine, is nothing to miss. For 10 bucks, th...  more »
  • Great time at the mine. Wonderful tour guide. Did some gold panning in the stream and it was fun. We found a little gold! The water was super cold though in April. Would have stayed all day long if we...  more »

  • Great people running the place. Bob was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable about the area and surrounding mines. If you get the panning package you can pan all day if you want. Lots of gems and silver and gold to be found too. The kids loved it!
  • They are super mean i mean like one guy kept yelling shut up to the class and another was being super rude he's like BE QUIET , MOVE BACK. they guy saying shut up said this is the attitude adjustment pointing to it and it was a fake hanging guy and he said there is a zombie in there. While the kinder gardeners were crying because they were scared , he yelled SHUT UP!! And he said shut up to a teacher while she was trying to help someone. Extremely mean staff especially the manager cause he didn't care.They made a Teacher cry they were so mean while she was trying to defend us
  • Seriously not just cool because you get to go in a real gold mine but, the ground squirrel/ chipmunks are super cute and the guide was a riot. And really for me the most awesomest part of our visit was Al! I really enjoyed hearing his story and the reason for writing his books, I will definitely be here again soon and can't wait to bring my boys!
  • I have a "rock hound" 3 and 5 year old. I called ahead and asked if the tour was age appropriate for children. Interesting tour, NOT at ALL directed to kids. Could have been 3 or 4 stars with a better guide?
  • The mine is neat. The chipmunks are a nice touch. The panning is fun, though it is not rigged so don't come expecting to find anything. The owner was nice, but the tour guy was a complete jerk. Minus two stars. Others asked for their money back. I would have but I wanted to pan. The tour stories are completely fake, although the mining methodology seems real. I also knocked a star off for the biting flies.
