Argo Gold Mine And Museum

The five-story Argo mill was renovated and opened to the public as a historic and educational tour. Most of the equipment used for processing the gold ore remains in place. See live demonstrations of the processes of crushing, milling and rock drilling. The bottom level of the mill serves as a museum displaying mining and milling artifacts, old payroll records, milling receipts, and old photographs.
