Consolidated Gold Mines is the site of the largest hardrock gold mine east of the Mississippi River. We are open seven days a week, rain or shine for guided tours of the mine, gold panning, and gemstone mining.

Enjoy a 40-minute tour of the mine with one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff members. The tour includes displays of the equipment used at the turn of the century, an introduction to the geology of the gold belt, including quartz and pyrite formations, where early miners were finding gold. Travel more than 200 feet underground and take a step back in time to view a slice of history from the late 1800s.

While you are at the mine, don't forget to try our "Gemstone Grubbin'" for a great family experience. Everyone will love our water-powered flume boxes that quickly wash away material revealing beautiful gemstones. We have buckets for beginners and experts alike. See you at the mines!
