La Cité de l’Or is the only site in Canada that brings the visitor in the heart of a gold mine exploitation from one of the most productive in the country, and where we can visit a historic mining village still occupied today. The site bears witness to the beginning of the 1920 gold rush taking place in northwestern Quebec at that time and is composed of a significant number of high quality residential and industrial heritage assets.

La Cité de l’Or proposes to you the following activities

  • An underground visit at 300 feet (91 m.) of a real mine drift;
  • A tour of the four (4) old Lamaque Mine’s main buildings,
  • A unique experience with the permanent exhibit « Gold in our veins »,
  • An interpretation tour of Bourlamaque’s mining village, with or without audioguide;
  • Visit of the mining village with an audioguide;
  • The exhibit at the historic house, "At home in Bourlamaque";
