Underground ADVENTURE -- Educational Experience full of FUN in a real Gold Mine
Old Hundred™ Gold Mine Tour. Go underground in a real gold mine! Ride the electric mine train 1/3 mile into Galena Mountain for live mining demonstrations.
Experience underground fun in a real gold mine! 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.
