During the up to one-hour Good Enough Mine tour, guides lead visitors through the mine's original 1879 passageways and large chambers, past artifacts, geology, archaeology, and mining technology of the day and veins of silver ore. Alternatively, on the up to three-hour Toughnut tour, guides lead groups as they crawl through 3-foot spaces, a room the size of a football field, and scale ladders, visiting parts of the mine left relatively untouched for more than 130 years. Although the mine is underground, the temperature is around 66 degrees.

Good Enough Mine Tour

When the guides and staff at Good Enough Mine Tour opened their 1879 Tombstone silver mine to the public, their achievement was more than a year in the making. They had worked tirelessly, blasting compressed air and water to clear blocked passageways, cutting through solid rock, and mixing concrete that they'd carried into the mine on their backs. Once they finished clearing the tunnels, they built stairs and railings and installed lights. Finally, guides began leading tours through the mine's original passageways.

Today, Good Enough Mine Tour's guides escort visitors as far as 100 feet underground into the mine's 19th-century depths, where they divulge the history and uses of 130-year-old structures and artifacts such as strap-rail, lanterns, and dynamite fuses. They sometimes lead visitors through narrow passageways and into stopes––large chambers created by ore removal––or up ladders and into the living rooms of friendly mole people.
