Techatticup Mine, is a former gold mine, now a tourist attraction. It is located at an elevation of 2,477 feet (755 m), midway in Eldorado Canyon, in Clark County, Nevada.

The Techatticup Mine was the largest and most productive mine in the Colorado Mining District. The mining camps of Alturas and Louisville were located near this mine, midway down the canyon.

The mine has been cleaned up and illuminated, and guided tours can be taken through the mine. Much of the old mining equipment is still to be seen there. A highlight of the tour is where it passes through a spectacular example of drift mining, its long deep drift cut downward from the top through the mountain where its lode of ore was located.
