Gold Panning at Lomax Gulch

Visit Online


The best authentic gold panning experience in Breckenridge! Lomax Gulch was an active gold mine site in the 1860s.

Miners used high-pressure hoses, sluice boxes, and gold pans to collect the precious mineral. The creek that runs through Lomax to this day still carries gold flakes – and fool’s gold!
