We had at great mine tour with our guide Jason. Enjoyed learning about subterranean donkeys and Ouray history! My son also really enjoyed panning for gold and left with a vial full of specks of pyrite and silver. Highly recommended!

Our guide Jerry did a great job of explaining was a day in the mines was like. There was an area outside where you could pan for gold as well. My daughter found several pieces.
