MINE TOURS & GOLD PANNING
A TUNNEL TO ANOTHER TIME
THE LEBANON SILVER MINE TOUR
Enhance your train ride with an optional walking tour of the Lebanon Silver Mine located at the halfway point on the railroad. The tour takes you 500 feet into a mine tunnel bored in the 1870s. Your guide will point out rich veins of silver and tell you about early-day mining. The temperature inside the mine is a constant 44 degrees Fahrenheit, so bring a jacket or buy one in our well-stocked gift stores. The tour also includes visits to the manager’s office and the miners’ change room.
Children: $27.95 (ages 3 - 15)
***Recommended Child Age: 5 & UP
THE LEBANON EXTENSION MINE TOUR
The New Lebanon Extension mine tour goes into the newly re-opened southwest Lebanon access tunnel. This tour takes you over 900 feet into Leavenworth Mountain. This tunnel follows a section of the Hise ore body that extends from the silver mines of Silver Plume to the Silver Queen mine in Georgetown. You will see naturally occurring “silver pearls”, calcified hobnail boot prints, calcite dams, and stalactites that are over 100 years old.
Children $31.95 (ages 3 - 15)
***Recommended Child Age: 7 & UP
THE EVERETT GOLD PANNING & SILVER MINE TOUR
The Everett Mine has recently reopened! It gives visitors a sense of a mine when it was brand new and in operation in the late 1880s. The lighting is set to a level similar to the candle lights the miners would have been using. The interior mine exhibits cover: the transition from hand drilling to mechanical drilling, the differences between black powder and dynamite blasting, ore removal, timbering, and tunnel construction. Guests also pan for gold and can take home everything they find! Every guest receives a hot dog, chips, and lemonade.
This tour is open Fridays though Mondays through September.
Children: $31.95 (ages 3 - 15)
