Located just minutes from the historic town of Silverton, the Mine Tour is easily accessible by car and RV. No reservations required. The Old Hundred Gold Mine Tour is an hour guided mine tour which takes one 1/3 mile into the heart of Galena Mountain where one can see real mining equipment in action! Go underground and glipse what a mine in the past would have been like.
Ride a vintage electric powered mine train in an authentic miner's "man-trip" car once used at the famous Camp Bird Gold Mine.
See colorful minerals and crystals in tunnels blasted by hand from solid volcanic rock.
Watch mining equipment demonstrations the way it was done with air powered drills, slusher, and mucking machines dating as far back as the 1930's.
See the incredible 1904 Old Hundred Boarding House perched on a sheer cliff 2,000 feet above the mine!
Pan for real silver, copper, and even gold - and keep what you find!
