A rainy vacation day turned out sunny. We had four adults and had traveled an hour to do something different. I called about their hours of operation. They are open till 4:00. Cost is $16.per adult. They take you down into the mine. I have bad knees, but managed to do this without problems. Then we panned for gold. All... More

We both enjoyed our tour at the Consolidated Gold Mine. The tour guide (I apologize, I do not remember his name) was well-informed and quite the joker during our tour. It was so fascinating to see the often overlooked history behind the old days of "gold rushes". We also did the panning for gold and gem mining. I got a... More

This was a good educational and fun tour. Our group was ages 3 to 63 and everyone really enjoyed it. The gold panning after the tour was an added bonus.

This was our third visit (in a 20 year time frame) and each time is better than the last! Even though it was raining out we were still able to enjoy not only the tour but we also learned and were able to experience mining for gold! In the past the mining was outside and uncovered but now it's covered... More

Our family of eight (5 adults, 3 children, ages 5, 7, and 10) all greatly enjoyed visiting the underground tunnels where gold was mined. We learned a lot about gold mining in our country and the life of gold miners. The tour ended with a chance to pan for gold.

We drove over from Cherry Log. We were all glad we did. The facility is much bigger inside than appears. The mine was fantastic and our guide Chris was terrific. Heads up, there are no ATMs or cash back onsite so bring cash if you plan on tipping. We were in the mine about 45 minutes and our guide was... More

I have always wanted to pan for gold and look for gems! This was the place for that! The tour of the mine was very interesting? Miner Mike helped with the information on the gemstones, cuts, mounting etc. loved his sense of humor! If you're in this area, take the time to stop.
