  • We had a fantastic time here today! The owners were very nice and helpful. They were very attentive and made sure you had a good time and found the best minerals. I found a 21 Karat white Topaz and a 14 Karat ruby. My family members found beautiful Quartz and Moonstones and we found many Garnets. The price was VERY affordable. We will go back to this mine again!
  • For a very reasonable price you can mine a large bucket guaranteed to have big rocks in it and an opportunity to find real gems. I enjoy watching the birds at the feeders along the little creek right in front of the benches. The folks that run the place are very friendly and helpful. They will identify everything you find, label it and place into individual bags. Great fun!
  • So much fun. The scenery was beautiful. While panning you see birds eating at feeders and the people were so nice and helpful. I will return to this mine. I've been to many and this had to be my favorite experience.
  • Their "instant gratification" buckets offer a large variety of gems and minerals, and I even found a Cherokee pottery shard and petrified wood. My 90 year old Mom had a great time, as well as the kid's group who were there at the same time as us. Fun for all ages.
  • This was a really fun place. Family friendly. Many different salted buckets available. Will definitely go again.
