Description

Bachelor-Syracuse Mine Tour is located in Gold Hill, and is rich in gold, silver, and other precious metals. The visitors are equipped with hard hats and raincoats, then the 1020m long ride on a miners train into the mine starts. This might get a little cool, so we recommend warm clothes. Inside the mine the rich silver veins and other mineral deposits are shown together with the equipment used to mine it. During its operation some $8 million in gold, $90 million in silver, and $5 million in other minerals have been mined.
