Learn more about the mining history by touring an actual gold mine. At

the Argo Gold Mill and Tunnel enter the tunnel, and explore the mine and

mill both on the National Historic Register. Tours include a lesson in

gold-panning and the chance to pan for gold or gemstones such as

peridot, topaz, garnet, the state gemstone Aquamarine, and more. You can

keep whatever treasures you find. Be prepared for walking outdoors,

dress warmly and wear sturdy shoes. Open-toed shoes are not permitted.

There is an admission fee.
