The day will feature demonstrations of hard rock mining equipment and techniques as well as a chance to see the surface plant and hoist house of the Strong Mine. The tour Two Mile High Mining Company owner Jim Watson will provide history and showcase the sawmill and methods of making square set timbers for use in mine shafts.

Folks will also get a chance to see the mine’s hoist operate and visit the hoist house.

Andy Watson will demonstrate hand drilling using a single jack hammer and steel. In the early days of the district, miners used hand drilling to create the holes in which dynamite was placed and charged to break the rock.

During the storytelling some of the mining district’s well-seasoned miners will conjure up memories and weave tales about their experiences and the old days underground.  

The day will also include gold panning demonstrations, geode breaking, a treasure hunt sand pile for kids, and weather allowing smores can be roasted over a fire.
