We visited the Crisson Gold Mine, where we took a tour of the mine and the kids mined for gold and gemstones. I was very impressed with how knowledgable and helpful all the guys who worked there are - they helped my son identify every little gemstone speck that he found. This mine has been operation since 1847, and our tour guide was the great-grandson of the original mine owner. They are open 7 days a week, take Visa and MC, and it was about $10 a person for the tour and panning.
