Important Tour Closing Date Change: The Old Hundred Gold Mine Tour will be closing for the season on Monday, September 13th, 2021 (three weeks early). This is because US Highway 550 between Silverton and Ouray will be mostly closed during daylight hours for power line construction. This will make it very difficult for customers to travel to our site. Our last open day will be Sunday, September 12th. The early closing will also allow us to proceed with a major track replacement project which will improve mine safety and train ride quality. Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience.
