  • Thank you so much for such a unique and true experience! Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed the knowledge of the owner and his mine. We really liked how we got to mine real stone from the back of the mine and then wash them and find out all about the veining. The kids all took home real mineral rocks from the mine they dug out. We even stayed longer than our hour and the owner was so nice. Definitely go to this one for a real and unique experience all will enjoy!
  • Myself and my two kids completely loved coming to this mine. It was our first mine tour and we definitely got the gold fever! Greg was knowledgeable and was eager to answer any questions we had. Rock smashing and panning for gold was a memory me and my kids won't forget. Thanks guys! Your awesome
