Overview
More
The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

Good Enough Mine Tour was an absolute awesome experience! The guides and manager were very knowledgeable about the history and geology of the mine in its prime back in the late 1800’s. It takes you 100 feet down into the mine with lots of information...More

My husband and I took the mine tour this afternoon and it was much more interesting than we had imagined! The guide, Sam, was fun and very knowledgeable about the mining era and Tombstone in general. Kudos!

It was an adult only tour until we caught up with our three kids, but the guide rolled with it. He was funny and informative and probably had whiskey in the “tea” he was drinking but no judgement here. My kids love Minecraft, and this...More

Different from CA Sierra mines. Knowledgeable guide (just 2 of us with him). Saw a lot of the mine on different levels and different work activities. If you are there and have any interest in mines, then go.
