DescriptionGear up to be immersed in a true wild west experience at one of Nevada’s richest gold mines. There are tales of gold fever and claim jumping, disastrous floods, fortunes won and lost, wild politics and more. Hear true stories of the men who blasted their way underground in search of buried treasure. You'll learn from a local expert about gold mining in southern Nevada at the Techatticup gold mine, which operated from 1861 until 1942. While you’re there, explore a private collection of old cars, memorabilia, and souvenirs from movie sets filmed in the area. Restrooms and a gift shop are available. Your certified Pink Jeep Tours guide will give you the colorful history of this remote and once-thriving mine, and point out unique features of the desert landscape. Check out an abundance of desert plants like the Teddy Bear Cholla. They look soft enough to hug, but these teddy bears will hug you right back, in a prickly way you won’t soon forget! A short drive from the mine reveals interesting geological formations and ends at an overlook above a beautiful stretch of the Colorado River at Nelson’s Landing. Cameras ready for a terrific photo op! For 40 years of the mine’s history, coming up the river on a steamboat to this spot was the main way to reach the mine. Go back in time on the Eldorado Canyon Gold Mine tour.
