The Old Hundred is the only mine tour where you can see and operate mining equipment in a real-life mine environment.
Enjoy underground amusement in a genuine gold mine. Rarely do outsiders witness the hard rock miner’s underground world. Now you too can see how mining operated with a one-hour guided tour on a safe electric mine train traveling a distance of one-third of a mile into Galena Mountain. Guides will lead you through expansive tunnels to view crystals, minerals, and other mining demonstrations!
Outside, relax in their covered picnic area while admiring the incredible 1904 Old Hundred Boarding House perched 2,000 feet above the mine!
With the purchase of a ticket, you can pan for genuine silver, copper, and even gold, and the best part is that you can keep what you find. So visit the Old Hundred Gold Mine and take a tour of the underground. NO reservations are required.
The Mine Tour is located just minutes from the historic town of Silverton and is easily accessible by car.
