This huge open cut mine is a very interesting place to visit. No entry fee to see the mine from the very well maintained boardwalk. Well worth the time to stop and visit.

You don't have to walk far into the potentially snake infested area to see the open cut gold mine and its inky black water 200 feet down. I was grateful that the viewing platform was such a short walk because it was a really hot...More
