  • 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!
  • Caleb "rocks" very friendly and knowledgeable. Wonderful place! Found lots of great gemstones even a star sapphire. Will definitely go back!
  • 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!
  • A fun adventure for the family. My 4 year old and 6 year old said this was the best part of the trip. They can't wait to go back.
  • Wow, that was way more fun than I expected! My 6 yo daughter really enjoyed sifting through the gravel to find gems and we found quite a bit in our bucket!
