Gold Rush Era Mine Opens Presidents Day Weekend

Posted February 13th, 2014 @ 6:59pm by KFBK News, Tim Lantz

The Gold Bug Park in Placerville will be open February 15th through the 17th. They say the rarely seen Priest Mine will be open for guided tours. The Priest mine is a hard rock mine dating back to the early 1850s that was all hand dug.

They say this mine was named after a miner who may have provided services on Sunday for other miners in the area.

Gold Bug Park is a mile north of Highway 50 on Bedford Avenue in Placerville at Gold Bug Lane.
