  • Had a great time today! Got the big bucket and split it with my best friend. We each found plenty of garnets, topaz, emeralds, sapphires, amethysts and more. Chris, who is a geologist, was incredibly helpful out at the sluice and Daniel did a great job helping us with what to do with our treasures. Thanks for a great time, we will be back! Good luck in Utah Chris!
  • I went here with my girlfriend on vacation. Awesome staff! They were just as excited about helping us as we were about being there. Afterwards they sorted and identified ever gem that we had found. My girlfriend and I then selected two of the gems to have cut and they were sent to us in the mail with a thank you card!
  • Fabulous time, was here last year if you love gemstones this is the place to go panning. Staff is excellent and very helpful.
  • My family had a great time at this gem mine. We can't wait to go back.
  • Just fantastic. Took the kids and family here. They accommodated 9 people in there inside sleuth area. Everyone ended up with fantastic stones. They took the time to explain each find and showed us what cut/polished stones looked like. There was a no pressure sales tactic which was fantastic. We have 1 cut included with out bucket purchase and because of the kids they made a deal for the other cuts to satisfy all of the kids. They even gave advice on how to cut my own stones at home. Will return next year. THANKS SO MUCH!
