Very friendly staff. Robyn was our guide in the mine and did an excellent job The mine tour was nice and informative. Panning for gold was also fun at the end of the tour. You could pan as long as you would like. We found a few pieces of gold flower (flakes) while panning.

We had a great time on our tour. It was more of a treasure hunt than an escape room and was very enjoyable. The guide was very nice and added to the experience.

Whole family loved it! Great staff who were fun, friendly, knowledgeable, and great with the kids! Even though we were only scheduled to do the last session for gold panning they let us go on the last mine tour at no extra charge (big deal for our family of 7) bc they wanted the kids to have the experience and learn about mining. All 5 of our kids (3-11 years) and adults enjoyed the gold panning and all collected gold flakes, pyrite, peacock pyrite, and other goodies. All things needed for the panning (including wading boots for the little ponds) are included. Our kids easily spent an hour panning for gold even though it was chilly out. Even though we were the last ones bf closing never once did the staff make us feel rushed or like they wanted to be done. It was a great experience; much better than the "mines" that sell buckets of dirt for sifting through. Highly recommend and would do it again. They have much more to do up there but that was all the time we had that day.

We wanted to see a real gold mine, and this was just as advertised. Our guide Robyn was knowledgeable about the history of the mine and the equipment used. She has a great sense of humor which made the experience a fun time ! We donned our hard hats for safety and headed into the horizontal mine drift about 1,000 feet into the mountain. The walk through the mine is not strenuous, and can be easily done by old and young alike. Aftwards we were invited to pan for real gold in the stream which flows down from the mountain. The gold is aplenty and is comprised of small pieces of gold leaf which are best sucked up with a pipette. They provide everything you need: wading boots, pan, pipette and a zip lock bag to store your gold. You are welcome to keep any gold and crystals you find without any additional fee. It was such a joy watching the young children with their little ziploc bags of gold, I'm sure they will tell this story to their grandchildren some day! The mine tour is about 45 -60 minutes, and you can pan for gold all day until they close if you like. I highly recommend, great for small children. It is located near Breckenridge, CO.
