Saturday October 13th 2018 - An Evening With a Miner: 7 PM to 9 PMThe setting is 1930, the sun has just fallen into the west, (bring a flashlight). The night shift miner is conducting the interviews for new employees at the Kennedy Mine (This could be you!!). He will be talking about the workings of the Kennedy Mine including aspects that could be of concern to new miners and other employees.
Past and present history of the mine will be covered including the tragic fires of the Kennedy and the Argonaut mines. This will be a great evening of history and entertainment. At the end of the “interview” you will see an early movie of the mine made in 1914 so you will know what to expect with your new job and will enjoy refreshments from the period.

On the Kennedy Gold Mine surface tour, visitors see the mine office building where gold flakes were melted into large bricks to ship by Wells Fargo stage to San Francisco. This is also where ore samples were processed to see if a particular underground area was worthy of further investigation. See the stamp and gold recovery mill, tailing wheels, a steam boiler and the huge steel head frame whose pulleys guided the miners into the bowels of the earth. You will also see the building [now a museum] where the men changed into their mining garb before dropping nearly a mile underground to work. View a historic video of the men working circa 1914, and much more. Visit the Kennedy Gold Mine and gain new insight into the complications and hardships of the miner's way of life.
