Go underground and experience the secret world of the gold miner! A one-hour guided tour takes you 1/3 mile into the heart of 13,000 foot Galena Mountain where you can follow the vein and see real mining equipment in action! Located just minutes from the historic town of Silverton the tour is easily accessible by car, RV and 4-wheeler. If you are riding the Durango to Silverton narrow gauge train, check out the Train Connection shuttle package.

Outside the awesome scenery is spectacular and at the end of the rainbow might be your Pot O’ Gold - in the Old Hundred sluice box! Pan for real silver, copper, and even gold – and keep what you find! Best of all panning is FREE with purchase of a mine tour making the Old Hundred a great family value.

  • Lots of fun! You will get a little wet from water dripping from the ceiling of the mine but they provide rain jackets and hard hats to help keep you dry. Dress warm though because the mine is 47 degrees and you'll be down there for 45 minutes or so. Our tour guide gave lots of info about various mining machinery and what life was like for the miners.
  • The Old Hundred Gold Mine trip was really awesome. I would recommend a Jeep or Ranger, or some type of fourwheeler or side by side. You will not regret it if you are interested in amazing views!
