Overview
More
Visitors can enjoy an easy walk over 1,000 feet into the mountain and see several tunnels. Experience the challenges of working by candle light, view seven of the 17 gold veins discovered, see the machinery and tools and explore a stope. Visitors will also learn about drilling, blasting and mucking and the importance of mining back in the early days of the Wild West. The Capital Prize is still an active mine and visitors will see a modern prospecting operation which includes dredges, sluice boxes, classifiers and shaker tables. In the warmer months, guests can try to find their fortune, or just have fun gold panning outside!

It is a good interpretation of what mining was like around the turn of the century. Great guides! Answered everyone's questions and knew a lot of history.
