Did you see the article we wrote for the Sept/Oct 2011 issue of Gold Prospectors magazine about Idaho's Silver Valley? If you're a member and get the magazine, check out pages 20-26. The Silver Valley is packed with fun family activities such as underground mine tours, mining museums, and you can also camp, hike, bike ride, ski, hunt for star garnets, prospect, and even visit the oldest standing building in the state of Idaho— the Sacred Heart Mission located in nearby Cataldo. If you're not a member of GPAA and don't get the magazine, download a .pdf of the article here to learn more about the Silver Valley's 120 years of mining history. Or read about two fun underground mining tours—Sierra Silver Mine and the Crystal Gold Mine— on the Travel Nugget page on this website.  Watch for more stories about America's golden past coming in the November/December issue of Gold Prospectors magazine!
