General info

Whether you just want to see how placer gold was mined during Virginia City’s gold boom, or do a little gold panning yourself, you’ll find this an enjoyable stop for every member of the family. An outdoor mining museum displays dredging equipment and other mining artifacts. You can pan for gold and garnets with a little professional help.

The River of Gold Mining exhibit and gold panning experience is a tribute to the gold rush days in Alder Gulch. It is located between Virginia City and Nevada City on Highway 297. Look for the big mining dredge on the west side of the road.

Find unique gifts, rock sand panning supplies at the gift shop. Call 406-843-5247 for more details.
