  • Excellent Service! Take your time if you want to find the real gemstones in the pans. Went in lost, came out super satisfied. Great place to bring the whole family!
  • If I could give zero I would. I work in Ga and born and raised in California. Took my two boys there today and we are of mixed race. The cashier said "he'd like to take my son as slave labor but not sure he's like that". Who the F says that?!!!?? My poor son was confused, but knowing the white trash-redneck didn't have the brain capacity to understand what he said was wrong, I kept my mouth shut. I cannot wait to leave this repressed shitbole of a state with these uneducated parasites!! Don't give this place your business!
  • We took our daughters to mine for gems and fossils, and they absolutely loved it! The mining area was clean and organized and the staff were knowledgeable and friendly.
  • The guys were VERY nice and helpful. My husband and I had a blast since it was also the first time we panned for gold.
  • Great time and the gentlemen were extremely helpful! We will definitely be back! Thank you!
