  • Love this place! Hears a lot about the yield of gems here so i traveled out for a week of mining. So far I've found some good clear gems ranging from the size of a silver dollar and smaller. I'll be back for a couple more days of digging! Tools are cheap to rent, everyone is friendly and informative. Locals will also help with tips and tricks. Wear long pants and sleeves and you'll be good. Bring plenty of water too!
  • I was honestly impressed with this place. My family like mining and gem hunting. You can bring your own tools, or rent some for $1. There are a bunch of spots to check out, both as rock faces, or as rubble. It's pretty easy to find good gems too! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable as well. Highly recommend for a fun experience, for a cheap price. Will definitely be back
