Colorado Mine Tours

Discover the rich history of Central City, known as “The Richest Square Mile on Earth.” Founded in 1859 during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush, Central City provided supplies to over 10,000 miners in its heyday. You won’t want to miss this incredible opportunity to explore remnants of iconic goldmines and try your hand at finding treasure!

Located in the Rocky Mountains 35 miles west of Denver, Central City was one of the top gold-producing districts in the U.S. In fact, in its period of peak production, it was almost named the Colorado state capital! Get ready to experience this historic city, rich in legends, ghost lore, and abandoned mines, on a scenic trip with plenty of fascinating stops.

Join Earth Treasures Tours for a fun-filled, educational Colorado gold mine tour into the exciting past of the state’s mining heyday. Make a stop at Gregory Diggings, home of the original gold strike that initially brought miners to the Central City-Black Hawk area. You may even get the opportunity to sit with a real old time miner!
