Chronology of Mining Tour

Walking tour of property discusses various types of gold extraction methods, with demonstrations of cradle and log rockers. Learn how miners first found gold nuggets by digging up the dirt, then followed veins of quartz below the surface. Participants will take a walking tour through the historic mining areas of Reed, explore both above and below ground, and get a chance to operate a cradle rocker, which acted like a large pan to search through large piles of dirt. $3.00 for anyone 8 years old and over
