Country Boy Mine Review

Ever since gold was discovered here in 1887, the Country Boy Mine has been one of the region's top producers, along with lead and zinc, which were vital for U.S. efforts in World War II. During tours of the facility you can belly up to the stove in the restored blacksmith shop or pet the donkeys that roam the area. The mine has a 55-foot ore chute you can slide down in summer, and gold panning all year round.
