Techatticup Gold Mine:

This tour includes a walking tour of the Techatticup Gold Mine, once the largest producing Gold Mine in Southern Nevada.  It’s the oldest, richest and most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada.

You will visit historical sites where steamboats docked and stamp mills operated over 100 years ago. Man per man and mile per mile Eldorado Canyon has a wider range of historical events than anywhere in the Wild West.

This guided above and below ground mining tour will take you into the mine and the history of the oldest and most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada.

This tour will consist of a walking tour of the old Techatticup Millsite. This is where the ore was brought out of the mine to the stampmill, crushed to a powder and mixed in cyanide tanks where the gold & silver were separated.

We’ll then proceed into the Savage Mine some 500 feet where you will view up and down slopes and actually see the veins they chased. The air temperature in the mine is a cool comfortable 70 degrees year round.

We will venture deep into this rumored haunted gold mine and visit 3 different shafts, one of which drops down to over 900 feet.

Learn how the hardiest of men labored feverishly looking for GOLD! Chiseling their way through the mountainside inch by inch, with the most primitive of tools and working by candlelight.

This is Old West History come to life.
