Your tour of the Argo includes a view into the history of the Argo Mill and Tunnel through a short film that will explain its origins. Our walking tour historians will offer a demonstration of mining equipment outside the gift shop and tour office, then transport you up to our ore mine, the Double Eagle and the newly opened to the public Argo Tunnel.

From there, you will enter the 5-story Argo Mill and descend through the myriad of artifacts left in place from the days when the Mighty Argo was in full production. Enjoy looking through the fantastic array of mining artifacts and equipment in our museum room.

Stepping out of the Argo Mill, you will find yourself in our panning yard where we offer a gold panning lesson and assist you in finding real gold ore – and – you keep what you find! We also offer gold panning and gem panning separately from the tours. It’s a great option for those short on time.
