Experience Underground Fun & Adventure in a
REAL GOLD MINE!
for 2002 - The Gold 'n Steam Tour Package –Click to Check It Out!
The 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
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.
