Big Thunder Gold Mine is open as usual through the end of October:

  • Masks can be worn for our mine tours, but are not required.
  • We put 2 cap-fulls of bleach in our Gold Panning troughs to eliminate any virus. Gloves can be used if you are allergic.
  • Hand sanitizer is available on-site for anybody who needs it.
  • Indoor and outdoor seating is available at the Big Thunder Bar & Grill.

See you soon,
Sandi McLain
