Gear up to be immersed in a true wild west experience at one of Nevada’s richest gold mines. There are tales of gold fever and claim jumping, disastrous floods, fortunes won and lost, wild politics and more. Hear true stories of the men who blasted their way underground in search of buried treasure.
You'll learn from a local expert about gold mining in southern Nevada at the Techatticup gold mine, which operated from 1861 until 1942. While you’re there, explore a private collection of old cars, memorabilia, and souvenirs from movie sets filmed in the area. Restrooms and a gift shop are available.
Your certified Pink Jeep Tours guide will give you the colorful history of this remote and once-thriving mine, and point out unique features of the desert landscape. Check out an abundance of desert plants like the Teddy Bear Cholla. They look soft enough to hug, but these teddy bears will hug you right back, in a prickly way you won’t soon forget!
A short drive from the mine reveals interesting geological formations and ends at an overlook above a beautiful stretch of the Colorado River at Nelson’s Landing. Cameras ready for a terrific photo op! For 40 years of the mine’s history, coming up the river on a steamboat to this spot was the main way to reach the mine.

The tour was amazing, Bob was he best! So Considerate and was very informative about the tour and the history of Nevada! The town was so beautiful and was so nice in October. But the best part was walking into the mine going through the caverns and learning about the history of how it was made and what for!
wonderful. the antiques all around add to the charm of the location. it was a nice quick tour not taking a full day with not too much walking for someone who may not walk well.
Pink Jeep Tours have smaller groups on the tour and makes it much more personal than the other tour companies that are available.
Excellent tour guides. Bus and mine.
We both loved and are glad you recently added it to your selection.
This tour was one of the best that we have taken with Pink Jeep Tours. And our tour guide Jurgen Kiefer was wonderful. My wife and I talked with him and we got on the subject that this tour we were on was the sixth tour with Pink Jeep we have taken and we didn’t get lucky on a couple of them and did not see any Bighorn sheep. Jurgen told us on the way back that he knew where some Bighorns would probably be hanging out and asked us if we wanted to go. My wife and I said “sure” since we were just the only two on the tour which was nice also. We arrived at the park and got to see beautiful bighorn sheep at the park. Jurgen really did care and was one of the best tour guides we have had.
The tour was lovely, and came with great conversation and knowledge of the history of both Nevada and the United States!
It was very informative and everyone was nice. I will continue to tour with Pink Jeep Tours.
Our guide, Katharyne, was incredible! We had so much fun and learned a ton of things about Las Vegas and the Eldorado Canyon Gold Mine. We absolutely loved it and will come back!
We really liked our guide! Very friendly??
