A staple of the MINEXCHANGE experience, field trips to area facilities and operations help attendees see the legacy of innovations in mining. The Denver area offers a special point of interest for MINEXCHANGE attendees: the Argo Mill and Tunnel. 

Situated in Historic Idaho Springs in the heart of Colorado Gold Country, the Argo is a central character in the story of the Colorado gold-rush, and remains one of the largest, most well-preserved historic gold mills in the world. During the Colorado Gold Rush, the Clear Creek and Gilpin County mining districts were known as “The Richest Square Mile on Earth.” The Argo Mill was the master stroke—a state-of-the-art facility providing the latest technological advancements in milling and situated at the mouth of the mighty tunnel. 

In 2016, a dedicated group of local preservationists and visionaries purchased the Argo and continue to make impactful improvements to this remarkable site as well as the visitor experience of the Argo history.
