Homeschool Club- Techatticup Mine Tour

We got the opportunity to tour an actual gold mine. The Techatticup Mine tour was wonderful. The guide taught us a whole lot about the history of the area.

This plane was a prop in a movie, part of which was filmed at the mine.

Touring the actual mine was fascinating. I did not realize how elaborate the tunnel system was and it was all dug by hand and explosives in candlelight. Again our tour guide was wonderful and taught us a whole lot about how a mine operated as well as some of the history of this particular mine.
