Learn and experience the ABC’s of gold panning and gold mining, starting your adventure with locally-sourced raw gold ore. Miners of old and still today begin with raw gold ore – so will you! This tour is one of a kind, guiding you through the entire mining and panning process. Gold panning is actually the final step of many steps along the way. Enjoy an authentic experience and go home with new knowledge. Shovel, bucket, scoop, sluice box, gold pan, snuffer, vial, all tools of the miner. You will use each of these tools as you mine your very own bucket of ore from start to finish. The gold you take home is the reward for your efforts, that along with great memories, stories, and laughs!

The store and mining operation are surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery including an unrivaled view of Langille Mountain, elevation 4,422 feet. It is not uncommon to spot Bighorn Sheep at the higher elevations of the mountain! This is an easy and fun experience for friends, families, grandparents, teens, children, and solo sojourners, and anyone wishing to answer the call of gold fever.
