Hidee Gold Mine
About Hidee Gold Mine, Central City
The Hidee Gold Mine is a former gold mine in Gilpin County, Colorado, United States. It is one of the tourist attractions in and near the town as a result of the efforts of the local residents, and the Hidee Gold Mine company which worked to recreate the history of mining near Black Hawk, Colorado. There are tours of the mine, which explain the methods that were used both in the past as well as the present. Also during these tours, tourists are given a feel of being a miner, by including a stop at a gold ore vein where tourists use a single-jack (one-handed) hammer and chisel (provided) to chip a gold ore sample loose, which they are allowed to keep as a souvenir.Wikipedia

This was an incredible experience. The guide was knowledgeable and passionate and answered all our questions. He shared the history of the mine, how they mined in centuries past vs. how it's done today. We actually mined the gold with a pick and small sledge hammer and were able to take a small treasure home! We were shown how to pan for gold as well, which is much harder than it looks! Contrary to one review, we were able to pay with credit card without any problem. The cost was well worth the experience! Thanks for an INCREDIBLE experience!
Very good. I would suggest reservations but we walked in and had 2 spots left. You get to chisel your own gold out of a gold vein and keep it. Staff is knowledgeable in all things mining and we're friendly and helpful.
Super family friendly! About an hour easy walk into the mine and at the end of the walk you get to chip a piece off the wall. We had 5 years to 65 years and all had a great time. Would definitely recommend the extra $5 a person to pan for gold at the end. All of us found some great little bits and had fun.
By far the best mine tour experience my family has ever had. The staff was super friendly and made the tour fun. Best of all,,,You get to mine gold ore!
Dave was our guide and he was great. We learned about history of living there and of how they mined. We got to use a hammer and chisel to chip our own ore from the vein to keep - I don't know where else you can do that. While we were panning for gold, I was talking with Dave about what he did for mine rescues. Dave was great with the little kids in the other group that went with us and had an extra hunt for them to do with the tommyknockers. While you get to go pretty far into the mine, there are 2 other levels that I hope someday they will open to see even more.
