Consolidated Gold Mine
Start planning your visit to the largest hard rock gold mine east of the Mississippi and it’s located right here in Dahlonega, Georgia! Founded in 1896, the gold mine focused on removing gold trapped in quartz veins throughout the property. Head 200 feet underground and over 100 years back in time to experience life as a turn of the century gold miner. Your tour guide will demonstrate how miners blasted quartz veins to uncover huge deposits of gold. After your underground tour, our miners will teach you how to pan for gold and you will have the chance to strike it rich. We offer gold panning, gem mining, gem cutting and more year round and rain or shine. So, if you are looking for things to do in Dahlonega, come out to Consolidated Gold Mines, North Georgia’s only underground gold mine tour.
