The Phoenix Gold Mine was purchased in 1968 by our family of 4th generation, Colorado miners. In 1988, we decided to share our passion for prospecting, mining and panning for gold with others by offering tours. The history of the mine is rich. It is estimated that the mine has produced over 100,000 troy ounces of gold.
The Phoenix Gold Mine is an authentic trip into Colorado mining history! Come by and tour a real underground gold mine, see gold ore in the mountain, learn how to find gold and then try your hand at panning for gold. You keep what you find. We are family friendly, for all ages and abilities. Our small business is family owned and operated. On your gold mine tour, be entertained with one of our tour guides as they talk about geology, history, and gold processing equipment. You will see a gold vein. The mine is well lit, with wide, flat passages, with about 500 feet walking distance. It is about 45-degrees degree Fahrenheit, so bring a lightweight jacket. Pan for gold in the creek or underground in our table. Many find gold. Feel like you are on vacation, in an environment where everyone is welcome. We love to answer your questions. Make a reservation, we cannot wait to entertain, educate, and show you what we are so passionate about!
