Take a trip through historic Idaho Springs and discover a whole other world filled with fascination and wonderment. Learn the history of the Mighty ARGO MILL and TUNNEL and experience it as the miners did. Walk through the mine and put yourself in the miners’ shoes, view the tools and equipment used, and experience something new and old.
At the Mighty ARGO MILL and TUNNEL, you will be given an in-depth tour of the mine, be taken through the tunnel – which is one-hundred twenty feet in the ground – and get a chance to pan for gold! This is a great chance to expose yourself and your family to some rich American history while having a blast!
Anything that you can find while panning for gold is yours to keep! You might find gold itself, or gems such as Peridot, Topaz, Garnet, Quartz, Amethyst, and more! Any gems or objects that you find will be identified by the Argo Gold Mine and Mill staff so you can know what your treasure is when you take it home.
