  • the drive back there was worth it! Someone recommended this mine to us and they were right. Gems were NOT seeded, but were from their mine - you can dig and fill your buckets, then wash off the dirt. ...  more »
  • This is a good outdoor activity rain or shine...especially if kids are involved. Sort through the dirt and put it through a sieve, and who knows? You may have a rough ruby tht can be tumbled and revea...  more »

  • 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!
  • 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!
  • 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.
