6/29/09 - El Dorado Gold Mine Tour

We took the tour of the El Dorado Gold Mine today. It starts off with a train ride through the sight as the gold mining operations are explained to us at various points on the trip.

This is inside the perma frost tunnel.

The shaft entrance for the drift mining.

Placing the results of our goldpanning in a container.

This is our nephew, Kyle, who works at the mine. He weighed our gold and between the two of us we had about $22.

This is the nugget we really wanted.
