Consolidated Gold Mine, Dahlonega
Strike it rich at Consolidated Gold Mine, offering underground mine tours and gold panning lessons. Located near the "Gold City" of Dahlonega, this mine played an important role in the "Georgia Gold Rush" of the 19th century. Although the large-scale mining operations folded decades ago, a section of the mine's richest shaft, known as the "Glory Hole," remains open for tourists curious about the traditional methods of panning for gold. The underground tour displays the original cart rails, electrical lines, and an operational pneumatic drill recovered from the mine's deeper levels. This tour descends about 60 m (200 ft) below ground, so wear appropriate closed-toe shoes for your visit.

Kids loved it and so did I! Gold panning comes free with the tour, but we also opted to do gem panning. All the tour guides seemed very knowledgeable and friendly. Was a great way to spend an afternoon
An amazing experience!! While visiting the area for my sister's wedding, we wanted to see something that the area was famous for, and the Consolidated Gold Mine did not disappoint. The tour guide, Miner Nick, was extremely knowledgeable and professional. After the guided tour, we took part in a gold panning activity where we uncovered four pieces of gold! Great times.
