This is a really fun thing to do in Dahlonega! You get a bit of a history lesson, part gem stone lesson and some really cool things to take home. All of the guys or "miners" here are very knowledgeable and super friendly. Definitely worth the trip!

You enter the place and pay. They give you a coin if you pan for gold, a card if your doing a tour. You go in and watch a video of how to pan for gold then you pan for gold! Any gold you get you get too keep. They give you the gold in a tube with water so... More

Visited Consolidated Gold Mine with our grandkids (ages 3 – 10). We enjoyed the gold panning (seeded with a couple small flakes of gold) and also bought a value bucket of gems, which the grandkids really enjoyed. But the pleasant surprise was the mine tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging. It was very interesting seeing an actual mine -... More

Let me start with my husband and I have gone to Consolidated Gold Mine three times and have NEVER been disappointed. The first time we went here was 2010 and we had a great time. Panning for gold, Gemming and the tour. This past trip in December was great like the other times. The tour is great and it is... More

Spent a couple of hours here on New Years Day. We panned for gold, took the mine tour and bought a bucket of the gemstones to sift thrift. Our guide for the tour was energetic, friendly and informative. Definitely worth a visit while you are in Dahlonega!

Our family of four (kids ages 12 and 16) thoroughly enjoyed panning for gold and touring the mine. Educational, but not overly- absolutely perfect for a tween and teen! Incredibly nice and helpful staff. Nolan did an incredible tour! Highly recommend.

Our extended family of grandparents through grandchildren (ages 70-5) thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, JD, was funny and informative- keeping everyone interested. The panning for gold was fun but a lot of work for just some flakes of gold. The kids preferred the gem mining which was much easier.

My husband, daughter and I took my parents to the Gold Mines when they were visiting us for the holidays. We had a great day and learned so much about the history of gold mining in Georgia. Our tour guide (Stephen) was entertaining and informative. My daughter enjoyed panning for gold and was even able to bring her tiny treasures... More
