There is nothing like...

...the Carissa!  Where else can you see the pits & shafts where miners labored, then follow the transformation of the ugly grey rock to a gold bar!  The Carissa is a fascinating & authentic experience for the mining enthusiasts or for anyone interested in history.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic tours of the Carissa are reservation only, limited to 8 people & face coverings are  required.  We are sorry for the inconvenience but want to keep our visitors safe &still show off the extraordinary history of SPC!
