Mine Tours

Seize a rare and exciting opportunity to explore historic mining tunnels and operations, world famous for producing silver, gold, lead, and zinc. These safe, informative adventures are a must-see for those hoping to learn more about Wallace’s mining past.

Sierra Silver Mine Tour

Wallace and the surrounding area are recognized as the richest silver mining district on earth having produced 1.2 billion ounces since 1884. Catch the trolley in downtown Wallace and dig a little deeper into these rich mountains and into their storied past.

On the Sierra Silver Mine Tour, an experienced miner guides you through the main drift of an actual underground silver mine. Exhibits and demonstrations of mining equipment present historic and modern techniques used to mine silver, gold, lead, zinc, and copper.

Your guide will share his experiences as a hard-rock miner in the Coeur d'Alene District. The stories, demonstrations, and exhibits included in the Sierra Silver Mine Tour are entertaining and educational for visitors of all ages and interests.

Crystal Gold Mine Tour

Glimpse an authentic 1880s underground gold mine. Hidden and lost for over one hundred years, the Crystal Gold Mine was rediscovered in 1996. It was named for the beautiful smithsonite crystals formed on the walls over the last century. Gold and wire silver, still attached to the quartz vein, are clearly marked. You can even try your hand at panning for gold.
