Tours Since 1988

Family Owned & Operated
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.
Come see our high-grade gold vein and catch gold fever with us!
