Welcome to Idaho Springs, where the gold rush began!! 

So much gold, you could make a leprechaun jealous!!

Goldmine Tours
Argo Mill and Tunnel
Argo Mill and Tunnel
The Argo Mill was constructed to process the gold bearing ore from these mines. When completed, the Argo would be the largest mill of its type in the world. The mill processed over 100 million dollars of gold ore. At that time, gold prices were $18.00 to $25.00 per ounce. Taking into account the difference in gold values between 1900 and 2017, nearly 3 Trillion dollars worth of gold ore came through the ARGO TUNNEL. For the first time in 75 years, the front portal of the ARGO TUNNEL is open to visitor traffic!

Goldmine Tours
Hidee Gold Mine
Hidee Gold Mine
The miners and supporters of the Hidee Gold Mine have been working since 1988 to bring to life the rich history of mining near Central City & Black Hawk, Colorado. We concentrate on local geology, history, and explain mining methods both past and present. Tours include a stop at a real 5 foot wide vertical gold vein where you can use a single jack hammer and chisel(provided) to chip a gold ore sample loose, yours to keep!
Capital Prize Gold Mine Tours
Capital Prize Gold Mine is one of the most extensive and authentic mine tours in Colorado! Open this winter because it's warm and dry inside! Venture over 1,000 feet into the mine and see, feel and experience what it was like to be a hard rock miner over 100 years ago. See actual working tools, single-jack and double-jack drills, air powered "widow-makers," gold and silver ore specimens. ‚Äč See seven of the 17 gold/silver veins that were discovered on their way to 3,200 feet and the Mother-load. See how the miners continue to extract valuable metals using modern technology today. This is still a working and producing mine! Instead of gold panning we mine the real stuff! In the stope at over 1,000 feet you get to "mine" your own gold and silver ore. Then we take it outside and break the rock to get a "clean break" so we can see what is inside and you get to keep it!.
