One Hundred Gold Mine Tour
Experience Underground Fun & Adventure in a
REAL GOLD MINE!

New for 2002 - The Gold 'n Steam Tour Package –Click to Check It Out!

Gold mineThe underground world of the hard rock miner is rarely seen by "outsiders." Now you, too, can go "on shift" and see the earth from the inside out. A one hour guided tour takes you 1/3 mile into Galena Mountain where you follow the vein and learn how mining was done. The Old Hundred ™ is the only mine tour where you get to see and experience operating mining equipment in a real mine setting. 

Outside, the awesome scenery is worth the visit. Located in Cunningham Gulch just minutes from historic Silverton and easily accessible by car or RV, wildlife and natural wonders abound. Beaver and brook trout can be seen in the ponds below the mine, and elk, deer, and bear are sometimes seen. Spectacular waterfalls cascade down the cliffs from the alpine basins above you. In midsummer wildflowers dot the slopes and in fall the hills turn "gold" with the brilliant aspen trees

The Old Hundred ™ is a great family value, too. Gold panning is FREE with the purchase of a tour ticket. Our miner's sluice box is "salted" with the real thing so we're sure you'll find some "colors." 

No wonder the Old Hundred ™ Gold Mine Tour has been recommended by the New York Times, the Denver Post, Family Fun magazine, Rock & Gem magazine, "Colorado Getaways" television show, and automobile club guides in the U.S. and Europe.
