Interesting gold mine walk through. The mine itself is smaller than expected but still interesting and cool to walk through. Tour guide was pretty good.

Nice little roadside attraction for a cheap price. Family of 6 - 2 were free - 2 were 8 total and 2 adults were 12. 20 total for an hour or so fun experience. Recommend to go to Lead mine after.

Jarod was great teaching the kids to pan. Tour was interesting, and amazing to imagine miners working in there for 10 hours a day.
