  • 2nd visit. First time I didn't go into the mine. My love of rocks made me go back to "try my luck". So I got the hammer and safety glasses and walked to the mine. Was out for about an hour pounding...  more »
  • I love rock hounding so I especially enjoyed this. It was all natural mounds of stone and dirt, so you never know what you might find. We did find some diamonds and had a great time.  more »

  • 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
