Mollie Kathleen The Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine is perched 10,000 feet above sea level, on the Southwest slope of Pikes Peak, and is centrally located among more than 30 major Pikes Peak area attractions.

One of nearly 500 gold producing shaft mines, of the historic Cripple Creek Gold Mining District, The Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine is without a doubt the Country?s most unique and fascinating mine tour adventures.

From the early beginnings of the Mollie Kathleen Mine, many passers-by would often wander-in, pleading to tour the underground mine.

Working miners would take turns guiding complete strangers on underground mine tours where fellow miners were extracting gold ore.

Once the word got around that people off the street could descend the shaft and tour workings 1,000 feet underground, demand for tours rapidly grew to the point touring soon became disruptive to mining operations.
