Welcome to the Goldmine Experience in Thames. The visit includes a guided tour through underground tunnels to see how the miners worked and to look at a gold-bearing quartz vein, a demonstration of the stamper battery and other machinery in action, with an explanation of how to get the gold and silver from the quartz rock, and a look at the historic site and photo gallery. There's a chance to learn to pan for gold, too.
