Owner description: Venture over 1,000 feet into a Mountain. Explore the original working of the Country Boy Mine as you feel, hear and smell what it was like to be a Colorado Miner over 100 years ago. Find and keep your riches as you gold pan in Eureka Creek. Examine old photos and other fun exhibits to revisit the past and marvel at days gone by. Pet the roaming donkeys. This is truly an amazing experience and fun for the whole family year round. Come and tour the only underground gold mine in Breckenridge.

“Interesting and fun tour!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

This was my first tour of a gold mine. I never knew how dangerous and strenuous this work was. At the tour's conclusion, you get to pan for gold or slide down one of the huge shoots. Very interesting!

“Fun for the kids”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

It was educational (you get to walk through the mine) and fun for the kids as they got to pan for gold at the end of the tour. The walking area is wet and slippery in some places - wear tennis shoes. It is cold in the mine - wear a jacket. Also, the website mentions some type of ride down the mining shoot, but that was not available.

“Go in the warmer months”
Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Very interesting, tour guide was knowledgeable, neat mining facts! I enjoyed the paning for gold at the end. However, it would be more enjoyable in warmer weather.
