Gold Panning at Lomax Gulch

Breckenridge, CO, USA
About Gold Panning at Lomax Gulch
This is the most authentic gold panning in Breckenridge Colorado! Pan in the creek just like miners did more than 100 years ago. An expert guide will show you how. This is a fun, affordable activity that the whole family will enjoy. Great for kids and adults. After the lesson, stay as long as you want (until closing time!) This was the site of an active 1860's mining operation in Breckenridge. The historic buildings are free to visit during open hours. A gold panning lesson is $10/person. The Lomax Mine is open during summer months only. Please check our web site for hours of operation. Free parking and restrooms on site; 10 minute walk from downtown Breckenridge. Reservations NOT required.

If you are looking to just pan for gold and not have to do another mine tour, this is the place. For $10 a person you can pan for gold as long as you want. Not much for buildings to look at if you have...More

This site of an old gold placer mine is almost within walking distance from downtown Breckenridge. The website suggests a tour, but that only works if you're there in-season (mid-June through Labor Day). However, you can walk around the small property on your own, see...More
